I do not have the money as I have reinvested it in my business. My wife knows nothing about our finances, and this would really send her into a tailspin. Do you think this is something I can handle without having to tell her?
Answer: Welcome to your Toyota moment.

WEST MONROE — Don’t let the final score fool you – Ruston High School made it a closer game than the scoreboard final read Friday night at West Monroe High School.
But in the end, the Rebels came away with their 27th straight victory over the Bearcats with a 28-10 win at Rebel Stadium.
Some of the stats showed West Monroe’s dominance —particularly the 344 yards of total yards the Rebels racked up compared to 126 yards for Ruston.
But Bearcats quarterback Cade Gibson turned in what was probably his best performance since moving under center and kept Ruston in it much of the way.

Haynesville improved to 6-1 on the season with a 2-0 district record. Cedar Creek fell to 1-6 on the season with a 0-2 district record.

Hope for quail hinges on NBCI work

I’m sure you remember it like I do. You get up on an early fall morning, take your coffee out on the porch to sip and commune with nature when you hear it.

Think for a minute. When was the last time you heard the crisp clear call of a bobwhite quail? For me, it’s been several years and if I heard one today, I’d be telling everybody about it, sort of like those days long ago when somebody found a deer track and the whole community turned out to view it.
