Question: I use credit cards all the time. For one, I hate carrying cash around. But I also like to buy what I want when I want it. I pay my card bill off every month, so I don’t pay high interest rates on my money.
However, I am afraid that I may still be spending too much, since I have a hard time saving extra money. Is this a common problem?
Answer: You have no idea.

Davis, OK.jpg

A Sunday morning’s worth of sports notes after recovering from too many tasty munchies during the holidays:
• Aaron Rodgers will likely win the Most Valuable Player award in the NFL.
The sensational quarterback of the Green Bay Packers has had a phenomenal numbers crunching season.
More importantly, under his leadership, the Green Bay Packers have been near perfect.
But what about Drew Brees?

in
Former Tech star honored for character-building qualities

Every successful athletic team has one of those behind-the-scenes individuals, those who go far beyond the call of duty and give back in ways that make a lasting impact in the future.
Enter: Ed Jackson for Louisiana Tech University’s 2011 outright Western Athletic Conference champions, honorable mention vote recipients in the USA Today coaches’ poll and recent participants in the annual San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
As much as the Bulldogs achieved with their on-the-field work and relentless turn-this-season-around attitude (as has been well chronicled, Tech lost four of its first five games before going on a seven-game victory streak) was their discipline and dedication outside of the playing arena.

Outdoors in 2011: A good year

in

Sitting at my computer on a rainy day-after Christmas, I’m in the process of doing what I have done every year at this time for the past umpteen years. I’m looking over the columns I’ve shared with you folks the last twelve months. Some brought a smile of satisfaction or a chuckle at something humorous; others caused my brow to furrow when recalling problems or bad news that came to my attention.

Christmas holidays great, looking forward to the New Year

Irby, Marna.jpg

It’s true! We have begun another year, and I’m still here. So far, so good!
I went to my heart doctor this week and had some routine tests. Granddaughter Susan and Mary Hilan went with me. The appointment was at 1:30 p.m., and we didn’t leave until 4 p.m. Not because it was long and tedious. I had one echocardiogram and he told me everything was in great shape, so I don’t have to go back for six months.
