I’m talking about the endless television commercials and phone call after phone call soliciting votes or conducting surveys.
I’m talking about Tuesday’s elections.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for campaigning and even more all for everyone getting out to vote tomorrow. I realize how important elections are. But election season can be tiring, especially when campaigning turns in a negative direction.

UTEP digs out win over Tech

in

Rebecca Redgen led all scorers with 23 kills to go along with 10 digs for her sixth double-double of the season, but it was not enough on the day as Louisiana Tech fell to UTEP, 3-1 (19-25, 25-23, 20-25, 21-25), in volleyball action on Sunday at the Thomas Assembly Center.
Tech (9-17, 1-11 Conference USA) totaled 47 kills against UTEP (5-18, 3-9 C-USA), but 38 errors offset any success the Lady Techsters could have had, as the Miners had 48 kills and 12 blocks to clinch a road victory on Sunday.
