State Sen. Rick Gallot spoke to students at Ruston High School as part of a “Legislator’s Back to School” endeavor to encourage high school students to voice their opinions in a representative democracy.
Gallot, who represents District 29, told students their input is important.
“I hear a lot of students say that they don’t feel like their opinion matters to politicians, but that’s not true,” Gallot said. “We’re not celebrities. We’re real people who go through the same everyday issues you do.”

in

The Lincoln Parish School Board received an unprecedented interest rate on bonds sold for as a result of the November 2013 property referendum during a board meeting on Wednesday.
The lowest rate bid, and accepted by the board, was at 2.86 percent interest, a rate that bond attorney Grant Schlueter said is truly amazing.
“We were very surprised,” Schlueter said. “We haven’t seen a rate that low in a while.”
Schlueter said the low rate was due to a variety of factors; all of which point to the LPSB being top-notch in fiscal responsibility.
