“My kids were ecstatic. They were so excited that they were actually jumping up and down.”
I don’t know about you, but I get a pretty clear image in my head when I envision that type of response — someone actually demonstrating unabashed delight in something. Doesn’t that take you back to certain events in your own life?

Registration for 4-H summer camp is underway for all fourth- through sixth-graders. Because 4-H Summer Camp is one of the most important events that 4-H offers for youth, planning has to start early.
Camping is one of the most valuable experiences a child can have. It’s a learning experience that helps boys and girls appreciate the outdoors, live together as a group, be self-sufficient, get along with others and appreciate people with different interests and background. The camp is held at the LSU AgCenter’s Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center located near Pollock.

GSU men’s hoops deserves applause

It worked for the Grambling State football team. Now it appears GSU head men’s basketball coach Donte Jackson has stolen a page out of head football coach Broderick Fobbs’ playbook.
After the GSU football team suffered back-to-back one-win seasons in 2012 and 2013, the university hired Fobbs, who promptly guided the Tigers to a 7-5 finish in 2014 before guiding to his Tigers to three straight appearances in the SWAC Championship game, winning the last two league championships.
This season, Jackson and his Tigers have turned in a remarkable turnaround of their own.

Louisiana tax debate gets tied to other GOP ideas

in

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Tax policy won’t cause the only disputes in Louisiana’s upcoming special session. Lawmakers may squabble just as much over a package of spending control ideas sought by House Republicans as a trade for any taxes they may support.
Several of the proposals have been offered in previous legislative sessions, only to be spurned or shelved amid criticisms, including suggestions they’ll do nothing to rein in spending or will shift costs elsewhere.
