As summer officially begins on Saturday, the mercury will likely continue to rise.
Most of us can gain reprieve from the scorching heat of a Louisiana summer by jumping in a cool pool or lounging around our homes in the air conditioning.
Unfortunately, many residents — especially some of our elderly and disabled neighbors on fixed incomes — don’t have that luxury. They often face the difficult choice between paying their electricity bill — which is pushed higher during the summer months — and buying life saving medications or putting food on the table.
Area football teams are asking their fans to butt into their seasons this year — as in put their butts into stadium seats.
Football tickets are now on sale for the upcoming football seasons, which begin Saturday for Louisiana Tech and Grambling State and on Sept. 6 for area high school teams.
Louisiana Tech season and single game tickets for the 2013 football season are currently on sale. To purchase tickets please call the Tech Ticket Office at 318-257-3631, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit LATechSports.com.
As the economy continues to suffer, everyone has to tighten their belts and seriously consider every purchase they make. On Friday and Saturday, many purchases will be a little easier on the pocketbook thanks to the annual Louisiana State Sales Tax Holiday.
