Grambling facing water crisis

City under boil advisory; working to declare official emergency status

GRAMBLING — Some citizens of Grambling have gone without water in their homes since Wednesday evening, and Mayor Edward Jones said at a press conference late Friday morning that the city at that point was still “baffled” as they attempted to find out why water is not reaching the elevated tank on King Street.

“At this point, we still don’t know,” Jones said. “We’ve called in our consultants, we have people who have expertise in water, and they’re baffled. As of this time, they have no idea.”

DEAR ABBY: I must take issue with your response to “Tired of Behinds” (Sept. 5), who was upset that her fiance is part of a men’s group chat that includes the sending and receiving of pornographic female images.
While “boys will be boys” has been the reigning excuse for male misbehavior for years — nay, centuries! — times are changing.

We live in an age of instant gratification. Whatever it is we want or desire, we want it immediately.
College students cannot wait to get out of school and begin their careers. Engaged couples want to fast-forward to the wedding. High school students are eager to jump out of the nest and fly out into the world. Members of the working class look to retirement with excitement.
Thanks to technological advances, we hold the key to many of our desires in our fingertips.

Writing stories about groups like Hometown Heroes. Sharing with you why the temperature drops 10 degrees between the Marion Highway split off LA 2 west to Crossroads.

Like going to government meetings.
My youngest son is now 34. He was 12 when I told him I was going to be late getting home because I had to go to a Police Jury meeting.

And all it took was the revoking of a White House press pass and a media lawsuit against the Trump administration to catch a glimmer of that support.
News giant CNN filed suit Tuesday against Trump and many of his aides in response to the revoking of chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass, asking for immediate restoration of White House access.
