Grambling State’s offense put up points in their second scrimmage of the season, but the defense still won the day Saturday.

Police targeting drunk drivers

in

Drunk driving continues to exact an epidemic toll on this nation and our region. Every year nearly one-third of all motor vehicle traffic deaths involve drunk drivers or motorcycle operators.
In 2011, 9,878 people (31 percent of all fatalities) were killed on America’s roads in drunk driving crashes — about one person every 53 minutes. Holidays are particularly dangerous and the upcoming Labor Day celebration in Lincoln Parish is no exception.

LPPJ does trash talking

in
Changes being considered for garbage collection

Currently, the Lincoln Parish Police Jury anticipates a $175,000 deficit in the solid waste fund due to the expense of taking care of the 77 dumpsters placed around the parish.
Solid Waste Committee Chair Walter Pullen explained to other jurors on the committee that while the projected revenue for the fund is $523,000, the projected expenses have jumped to $783,000 for this fiscal year. A cost he said is heavily weighted by the expense of benefits and the cost of collecting the trash from the various bins.

Constitutional rights in jeopardy

in

“Property must be secured or liberty cannot exist,” — John Adams.
John Adams was one of the founders of our country, the first Vice President and the second President. He, as did all the founders, knew the role that secure private property plays in maintaining individual freedom and prosperity. The main purpose of government — federal, state and local — is to protect our God given inalienable rights as enumerated in the United Stated Constitution.

Anyone who doubts that Hillary Clinton is already in fine fighting trim for a presidential run should consider her speech to the American Bar Association in San Francisco.
She assailed an alleged “assault on voting rights.” She took aim at the Supreme Court’s recent decision striking down a portion of the Voting Rights Act and excoriated states that have recently tightened their voting laws. She declared that “anyone who says that racial discrimination is no longer a problem in American elections must not be paying attention.”
Madam Secretary hasn’t missed a beat. She knows that the calling card of Democrats in the Obama era is a polarizing politics that seeks to fire up minority voters by stirring fears of fire hoses and police dogs. Its basic vocabulary is imputations of racism; its evidentiary standard is low and dishonest; and its ethic is whatever works — so long as it stirs fear and anger.
The latest target is the state of North Carolina, which is accused of soiling itself with a new voter ID law, among other changes in its election laws. “The Decline of North Carolina,” harrumphs The New York Times. “North Carolina’s Attack on Voting Rights,” says The Daily Beast.
