Net neutrality is now reality

in
Amaya, Derek.jpg

The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to implement new net neutrality, or open Internet laws to ensure Internet service providers conduct all legal content, such as streaming videos, audio or other material, equally.
Net neutrality prohibits ISPs from charging content providers for speedier delivery of their content on “fast lanes” and deliberately slowing the content from content providers that may compete with ISPs, according to USA Today.
Now I do not know about y’all, but I love Netflix, which is a service providing streaming films.

St. Jude fundraiser a success

in

The seventh annual “Kupcakes For The Kids” fundraiser to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was held on Feb. 13 at Community Trust Bank.
It is hard to find words to express my endless gratitude to everyone who pitches in each year to make this fundraiser a success. A huge thanks to Community Trust Bank for the use of your facility, and to the Ruston Daily Leader and KRLQ for “getting the word out” each year.
Much appreciation to Super 1 Foods and Wal-mart bakeries for the donations of cupcake carriers.

Residents: Look out for bicyclists

in

I’ve been a bicycle rider for many years. But there is no caution towards bicycle riders today from car drivers. Bicycle riders are not considered valuable human beings,  but just something in the car driver’s way.
Please inform readers:
1. Bikes are, by Louisiana law, considered like cars with the same rights and rules. They have right of way on streets.
2. That means you pass them by driving way around in the other lane.
3. You don’t skim closely by them.
4. You do not startle them with honking
5.  You do not pull out in front of them.

Thanks to GSU professionals

in

Every semester at Grambling State University we have students complaining about the registration process and we have faculty complaining about how long it takes for registration to end without extensions.
Settle down, folks.
Students, unless you did what you should have done the previous semester to get registered, paid your bills or saw that someone took care of your bills, settle down and wait and let the registration process work. Each of you are “one more student” we need to make this glorious institution run.
