Officials sound off on center

Jurors took no action on the plan at Tuesday’s meeting, citing the need for time to consider the project and to get public input.
Convention and Visitors Bureau President Kyle Edmiston said the library board has not involved the CVB in the process, which he feels was a misstep up to this point.

’Dogs: Smooth first day

It was about learning each other, adjusting to the things that a new head coach and his staff wanted to accomplish and the players feeling comfortable with it.
Spin the calendar to a year later and the initial session of spring drills, the 2008 version, was much smoother.
“As far as expectations and executions, we are light years ahead of where we were on the first day of last year,” said Dooley following a two-and-a-half practice on Saturday afternoon. “I remember we couldn’t complete 20 percent of the passes we threw that first day. Today, we threw and caught the ball very well.

Grambling leaders must resolve issues

The mayor, on the other hand, has kept all information close to her vest, even having her daughter volunteer her time in the town hall to try to help while investigators ferret out the breach, whatever that may be.
State Police investigators alluded to a possible theft or misappropriation of funds, and that in itself is concerning. Having the mayor’s daughter in the building is also an ethical issue that cannot be explained away by saying she is only volunteering there.

Hey readers, tell us what you think

For the past half-hour, I’ve been studying the front pages of the past week’s papers. I see stories about sports, education, law enforcement, local government, things to do, business and even one about a three-legged dog. I see local names and faces and spotlights on the achievements of local people. Is this what you like to read?
I do know one thing that many people seem to like — our Women’s History Month feature “Women Who Make a Difference.” The response to the daily profile has been overwhelming, and I’m thrilled.

Grambling mayor, council clash

Ed Jones, mayor pro tempore, cited the Lawrason Act guidelines for Louisiana municipal governments and called the meeting to order without councilman Clarence Kennedy, who was absent.
Councilman Alvin Bradley said the meeting had been called to address rumors that the town clerk, Pamela Stringfellow, had been fired, as well as the 2007 audit, town bookkeeping and other personnel matters. After meeting in an executive session for close to two hours, Bradley, Jones, Toby Bryan and Roosevelt Bryant passed several motions, including one bringing Stringfellow back to work at town hall today.

Diamond ’Dogs: Regrouping time

Name it and it seemed to go wrong for Simoneaux’s bunch, who equaled a club record for most errors in a single game (7), got out-hit 11-6 and seemed sluggish from the very start.
“We came out flat and played poorly,” summed up centerfielder Adam Cobb. “It was tough. We had a lack of focus and just didn’t play well. But we’ve got to make something out of this and come back and play much better.”
The ‘Dogs won’t have to wait long.
They’re back on the Love turf this weekend for a three-game series against the University of Tennessee-Martin.

Clean-up days in parish are important

The trash that we leave laying around for passersby to see makes a statement about us that we wouldn’t want to make in person. We are better than being a dirty parish, and that is just about as simple as it gets.
So, KLPB’s first clean-up, scheduled for Saturday morning, takes on special significance. It’s the organization’s first clean-up this year, and it will set the tone for the success of other clean-up efforts.
