Board to open up on desegregation case

While much of the regularly scheduled Lincoln Parish School Board meeting set for 6 p.m. today will be routine business, it is certainly not a meeting for local parents to ignore.

School board members had two such legal planning sessions in March alone, with several others throughout the eight month span.

in

The Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has endorsed the proposed merger of Louisiana Tech University and Louisiana State University-Shreveport.
The board unanimously approved a resolution last week urging area lawmakers to support the consolidation of the two schools into a single, enlarged Louisiana Tech with campuses in Ruston and Shreveport.
“The creation of a second Louisiana Tech campus in Shreveport will inevitably create additional interests from manufacturing companies, research firms and high-tech facilities searching for new or additional locations,” the resolution says. “This proposed merger will help secure new jobs, quality jobs, for the people of North Louisiana.”

When you are thinking about purchasing a house, home inspections can ensure that costly repairs are not needed once you take possession of the house. In most instances, however, home buyers seldom look at the condition of the existing trees on the property.
Hiring a licensed arborist to inspect the trees can save potential homeowners hundreds or even thousands of dollars in tree-related expenses. If there are trees that are going to require extensive work, or even removal, the price of the property can be negotiated to take such expenses into account or at least you will be more aware of what tree issues you may have to deal with in the future.
