Jury to look at insurance costs

“There is some thinking that perhaps some people take the coverage because the Jury pays it all,” Assistant Parish Administrator Dennis Woodward said. “They might have other insurance where their spouse works. We think that by having them contribute 10 percent of the cost, it will eliminate those who don’t really need the insurance.”
The 10 percent contribution by employees would amount to approximately $26 per employee, per payment period. The start date for when the employee contribution would take place, if passed, would be determined later.

Never forget to savor moment

My mother literally took pictures of me every day of the first year of my life. She has this documented in several brown picture albums.
We have pictures of birthday parties, Halloween costumes, coming home from school on the bus for the first time (no joke), and my mom even has a very humiliating picture of me when I had the chicken pox.
She documented this carefully with various cameras over the years.
Her old Kodak one was her favorite, but we had several others, including a Canon and several throw-away cameras that were my favorite.

After back-to-back wins over Nevada on Friday and Saturday, the Bulldogs (19-13, 5-3) were an 11-5 victim of the Wolf Pack (15-16, 5-4).
Tech scored four runs in its last three innings, but it wasn’t enough to make up for a sluggish beginning. Nevada had a 3-1 advantage after four innings, then went up 8-1 after six before the ‘Dogs added on a run in the seventh and then three in the eighth.
