A Louisiana Tech distinguished alumnus will forever be remembered for the jobs he performed at the institution.

in

GRAMBLING — For the past two plus years, Grambling residents in the Mt. Olive area north of Interstate 20 have been waiting for work on a sewer project to begin, and after the Grambling Town Council meeting this month, it looks like a longer wait is in store.
The project has been on hold for numerous reasons, Walter Carpenter with Meyer, Meyer, Lacroix and Hixson engineering firm in Ruston said, including acquiring easements rights, a sewer rate study and a commitment from the town to finance the project.

Tech ranking illustrates success

Having a strong university can make a significant difference in the community. It means a large resource of expertise from which local schools, city officials and others can draw. It is also a great economic force, bringing in thousands of students, faculty and staff, who will rent or purchase property and frequent a community’s shops and restaurants.

P SMITH.jpg

Almost 45 years ago, I along with several more black students began a journey that was supposed to change education in Lincoln Parish for all children — black and white. A group of black parents, of which my father was one, decided they were going to send their children to Ruston High School.
They believed, and rightly so, that their children were not being accorded the opportunity to get the best education available in Lincoln Parish.

USPS manager: Congress needs to act

in

“Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night ... will stay us from the swift completion of our appointed rounds.”
For more than 235 years, the U.S. Postal Service has adhered to this unofficial creed. But now, the agency that is responsible for delivering mail to every resident of the nation at affordable rates is facing a financial crisis. Absent Congressional action this year, the Postal Service will experience a cash shortfall and be forced to default on a payment to the federal government.
