Be patient when doing research

Stockton, Gary NEW.jpg

Very often when people are talking with me about where they learned something or why they did something it is because they read it on the Internet. Apparently, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest are looked at by some as the greatest sources of updated and correct information available to everyone. It’s a scary thought that the Internet has become such a “no questions” asked source of information for many. Even a popular auto insurance company makes fun of the “Everything on the Internet Is True” attitude with the so-called “French Model” commercial.

Sometimes using savings is OK

I have covered the Lincoln Parish School Board for about three years. During that time, I really can't think of a time when some construction project wasn't either ongoing or in the process of being approved.
Students who graduated as recently as five years ago would not recognize some of the schools they call their alma maters. And, the truth is, I think that's great.
School is important. There are numerous studies citing how important education is to a society.

GSU budget cuts impact academics

in
School’s English department forced to lay off professors, delay classes

The lack of funding for Grambling State University has led to higher tuition, fewer resources and several employee layoffs.
In five years, state funding for GSU has dropped from $31 million to $14 million, a 57 percent cut in funding, which is producing issues for teachers and students.
“The more we cut faculty, the fewer classes we can offer,” said David Hodges, 57, a humanities professor from Orlando, Fla. “To my knowledge, at least four faculty members have been laid off.”

Local 6-15-year-olds have the chance to join the ranks of famous NFL quarterbacks such as Dan Marino and Brett Favre this Saturday.
Both football greats — as well as a number of other individuals around their country — developed a love for the game through their participation in the Annual NFL Pass, Punt and Kick.
“Girls and boys compete separately,” Ashlynn Shell, city of Ruston recreation supervisor, said. “Age is as of Dec. 31, 2013, as of 11:59 p.m. local time.”
