GSU outlines funding cut plans

Dixon said personnel cuts could be as high as 30 non-tenured faculty.
“All of that is still fluid; it’s not final,” Dixon said. “I wouldn’t want to say that there’s actually going to be 30 cuts. It could be 15, it could be 10.”
Personnel cuts can’t make up all $4.9 million necessary to trim, he said, and the university will find large savings in travel reductions, limited use of adjunct and part-time faculty, cutting supplies and equipment purchases and issuing employee furloughs — unpaid days off.

You look at him now, and he looks like a healthy child. We feel lucky.”

University cuts to hurt economy

What we know at this point is that state institutions here will absorb more than $13 million in cuts if legislators don’t find a way to change the budget as recommended by Gov. Bobby Jindal for 2009-10.
Interestingly, Tech and GSU’s governing body, the University of Louisiana System, will be releasing the results of a seven-month study that details the economic impacts of the eight-member university system. That information will come out today, and it will provide some ammunition for legislators who are trying to make sound arguments against devastating cuts.

Dutch ovens’ feast heats up

There is no cost to participate.
“This won’t be any kind of competition or anything like that,” Lake D’Arbonne Dutch Oven Society chapter advisor Kent Hogan said. “The big difference this time is that instead of offering samples, we’re just going to let people finish their cooking and then put the pot on the table and let people come and get it.
