GSU decision coming Friday

The investigation stems from a Sept. 20 rally in support of the Jena 6 on the elementary school’s playground in which kindergartners and first-graders made signs and played with shackles and chains.
The Gramblinite, GSU’s student newspaper, which printed a story and photo from the event in its Sept. 27 edition, photographed a young girl being held up by her grandmother, who is also a school employee, as a teacher placed a rope noose around the child’s neck.

Addicts find hope at shelter

Most shelter residents come either directly from jail or learn about the restoration ministry through a New Living Word outreach project, where church volunteers distribute food and clothing each Friday evening at the outreach center on Martin Luther King Drive.
“To everybody who’s on the streets that’s homeless and wants to change their life, we say ‘Get in the car, and you never have to come back,’ ” New Living Word Ministries Pastor Jerry Baldwin said.

“I will be fair, honest and open-minded,” Hunter said. “I’ll represent District 2 100 percent.”
District 1 candidate Jerry Lewis touched on improving the water and road systems to boost the quality of life in the parish.
“I also plan to address the dumpster and litter problem,” Lewis said. “I plan to be a no-nonsense juror.”
District 1 candidate Theresa Wyatt touched on her platform of inclusion in the district, citing low turnout numbers in recent elections — among both white and black voters — as evidence that new blood is needed on the Jury.

Oh yes, he also finished with 316 yards on 29 carries.

When the state fails you

Rick, the fedora-sporting mastermind behind a service that addresses what causes kids to end up in juvenile court by attacking the root, was circumspect about the problem. Age has given him a detached persistence.
A grant contract that would provide two-thirds of the funds necessary to run the center this year was hurried through when the state got wind of a story that negatively portrayed their involvement in the situation. However, weeks will pass before the first cent ends up in the center’s coffers.
