G.E.D. route leads woman to success

The current central office secretary/receptionist at the Lincoln Parish School Board Title I office was married as a teenager in the early 1970s and discovered the union would deliver more than legal changes and love.
“At 16 I became pregnant,” Crowe recalled. “At this time it was very unusual — more of a taboo — to see a pregnant woman in high school.”

State’s need strong for adult education

One message Romig wants to get out to the public is that 28 percent of the population in Louisiana reads at the lowest level of literacy.
“At this level readers stumble over words such as ‘cat’ and ‘dog,’” Romig said. “Louisiana has too many people who are considered illiterate, or whose ability to read, write or do math problems falls at what is considered the lowest level of literacy.”
The reasons for school dropout, and hence, illiteracy, are varied, ranging from poverty to emotional issues which impair functioning.

Lennox returning to old form?

The former Louisiana Tech University star struggled at the start of this 2006 campaign, but she’s starting to catch fire, returning to the Betty Lennox mold that earned her Most Valuable Player honors in the franchise’s march to a league championship in 2004 and that has made her one of the league’s moist dangerous offensive performers.

Over the past four games, she has averaged 19.3 points per game.

Same old dog, no new tricks

In fact, he has waged war on his leash and does his best to tear it to complete shreds every opportunity he gets. I can only imagine a similar fate would befall any decoration I attempted to put on him.
Secondly, he is not on his best behavior when in the confines of our home, so I seriously doubt he would change his ways should he be allowed to actually venture into public. Any canine that is around a large number of other dogs, animals and people should possess a modicum of decorum, which my puppy clearly lacks.

Former POW pays visit to Camp Ruston

Blumenberg was eventually transferred to an interrogation camp close to Arlington, Va. He was the only one of his crew that was captured and not sent to a Nazi camp in Arizona.
“I was the only one at Camp Ruston. I said I wasn’t a Nazi,” he explained. “In 1943, it was a very dangerous thing to do that. If Hitler had won the war, I would have been a dead duck.”
