NAACP addresses concern for GSU

“We’ve heard from some of the Board of Supervisors (regarding the issues), but we haven’t heard anything from the governor,” he said. “I think she should intervene in this situation; she can’t hide behind the board because she appointed them.”

Cougars’ 41 points more than enough

Not that it really mattered, because the No. 5 Class A Louisiana Sports Writers Association poll ranked Cougars had their fifth straight win without a blemish well in hand from the get-go.
The Creek had a 21-0 lead after the first quarter, were up 35-6 at halftime and then ushered in the backups for much of the game’s remaining time.
Overall, the Cougars totaled 397 yards, including 237 through the air, a departure from the usual ground-crunching assault that the District 2-1A member has applied to their opponents this season.

n Get tested. Many women attribute their survival over breast cancer to early detection. Women who are 18 and up should see their doctor annually for a mammogram, as well as perform monthly breast self-examinations.

Renewal for road upkeep passes

One mil equals $1 for every $1,000 of taxable property value. Under the state’s homestead exemption, the first $75,000 of the value of a home is tax exempt. One-tenth of anything more than $75,000 in value is considered taxable.
Juror Mickey Mays said he was pleased area residents voted for the renewal.
“This will be a continuation of a long period of good roads and maintaining our bridges and updating them to our standards,” Mays said.
He added that he had been apprehensive they would not pass.

Reneau, ever the gracious host and as fine an ambassador as the university has ever known, said he was pleased the Board chose the Tech campus for a rare meeting outside of Baton Rouge.
“It’s an honor to have the Board members and their staff on our campus, and I look forward to a product time,” Reneau said at the start of the three-day session. “I hope they enjoy the hospitality of our people.”

“Our purpose being here is to have a retreat and to create a new master plan for higher education,” board member and Tech alumna Frances Henry said.

Bearcats bumped by Bastrop, 46-14

“We won’t play anybody better this year,” sized up Bearcats’ head coach Billy Laird. “They’ve got great athletes and they’re all over the field, not just in a few places.”
