Events Center edges closer to finalization

However, it is reasonable to suggest people working to pay taxes be shown the plans after their initial conception. In a project aimed at providing the maximum benefit to the maximum number of parish residents and tourists, as much outside input as can be acquired should be obtained.

Library decision expected in June

The architect told the Police Jury that a set of recommendations for plan tweaks submitted last month would improve the overall project.
“The suggestions were well received by members of the library board,” Walpole said. “I think the plan would be stronger, and I don’t see a problem with the comments.”
Some jurors pushed for project approval Tuesday.
Sharyon Mayfield questioned whether a series of public meetings planned for the next few weeks in Dubach, Grambling, Choudrant and Simsboro will delay approval, and said her opinion was that the project should move forward now.

While Tech would drop the next two outings to the Bulldogs, that first game decision proved invaluable in terms of confidence-building for the remainder of the season.
“It told us that we had the ability and potential to beat any team, no matter who they were,” recalled junior pitcher Krissi Oliver. “Although we had lost earlier to Hawaii twice, they were also nationally ranked at the time and we gave them good games.

Ruston soldier returns

The students adopted Collie, so to speak, four months ago when they learned about him through their teacher Karen Taylor. Some time after he was deployed, Collie’s mother spoke to Taylor about the loneliness soldiers face out in the field, said Allison Ambrose, mother of a first-grade student.
