TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Natalie Moran and Tori Charters circled this weekend on their respective calendars months ago, maybe even years.
It was going to be their big day, one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments. Their names would be called in front of thousands of people as they walked across the stage of the Thomas Assembly Center in high heels and dresses to receive their diplomas as part of spring commencement exercises at Louisiana Tech.
Instead, Moran and Charters will be performing on a different stage in a different venue in a different once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The lack of cold weather may have hampered the local peach crop, but it gave a jumpstart to blueberries.

The pick-your-own berry farm, located on Highway 822 about 8.5 miles north of Ruston, will open to customers at 7 a.m. Friday. That’s at least two weeks earlier than usual, Alexander said.
