Repeat, repeat.
Ditto for Louisiana Tech.
Ditto for Grambling State.
Yes, look for repeats on the part of both Lincoln Parish teams when talk turns to conference championships in their respective conferences for the soon-to-arrive 2012 football season.

During the public hearing, Tina Hensley, the town clerk, explained to the council members the impact the resolutions would have on the town finances.
