Question: I hear people say that it is important for your money to keep up with inflation. But I don’t care about keeping up with inflation or anyone else. I just want my money to be safe. What’s so bad about that?
Answer: When it comes to money, sometimes I wish we would stop talking about dollars and start talking about dough.
I know the euphemism “dough” has been around for years in reference to money (i.e., he’s rich…he has a lot of dough). But I’m not talking about figures of speech here. I’m talking about real dough — specifically, loaves of bread.
In 2009, a small group of girls had an idea to create a day just for girls to celebrate what makes girls special. With their mentor, they approached Kappa Delta Sorority, and together, they created International Girls Day, a component of Kappa Delta’s Confidence Coalition. The celebration takes place each year on Nov. 14.
New Tech @ Ruston teacher Dustin Whitlock is seen presenting an overview of project development during a recent collaboration between NT@R and Louisiana Tech University.

Several community members were handcuffed, transported in a police car and forced to bail out of “jail” on Thursday, all to support a good cause.
Thirty-six “jailbirds” participated in the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s annual fundraiser, Ruston Executive Lock-Up, hosted by Jim Taylor Ford Lincoln.
The concept is that business and community leaders are selected by the MDA — either by word of mouth or through nomination — to be “locked up” for at least an hour inside the car dealership as they persuade others to help them raise the required bail money.
