Techsters stumble to ULM, 71-50

It’s not that he didn’t want to clean up the incinerator waste deposits that had built up over the previous months, it’s that he couldn’t screen it to clean it up.

Teachers’ pay gains ground

In past years, the parish has fallen slightly below the state average, and a number of factors combined could have pushed it over the middle mark this fall. School board business manager George Murphy said local teacher salaries are partly determined by the parish’s wealth factor. The number of students in a school district and the abundance of local sales and property taxes collected determine the amount of state funding it receives.
