More than 500 Grambling State University undergraduate and graduate students walked out of the Frederick C. Hobdy Assembly Center Friday afternoon with new degrees, and some of them can now be called “doctor.”
The formal academic exercise included all the normal pomp and circumstance, including academic regalia, a formal entrance march and dignified points by various speakers. It also included graduates getting down with “The Neck,” a university musical favorite that many seniors visually begged for The World Famed Tiger Marching Band to play before they left the center as graduates.

Barber: Wars cost lives, money

Dec. 7, 1941, Japan attacked Hawaii catapulting the United States into another world war. Germany and Japan surrendered in 1945. More than 420,000 American lives were lost.
Approximately twice that number received wounds that diminished their quality of life forever. The cost was astronomical in billions of dollars paid by average American taxpayers.

I come from a long line of “green thumbs.”
I can see my great-grandmother in her bonnet and apron, on her knees scraping spotless sidewalks of packed dirt within her neatly groomed yard. Flowers bloomed around the edge of her neatly simple home. It would actually make a beautiful painting as a true slice of Americana.
