New hires at GSU have work to do

Hiring Daarel Burnette as vice president for finance means the university finally has a permanent replacement for Billy Owens, who left the university in April 2007. The position is about handling the money that we, Louisiana’s taxpayers, and the students who pay tuition are putting into the university’s coffers, and a year and a half of interim leadership is too long.

Manuel Chinchilla, who owns the Super Tobacco House on the South Service Road, had to raise the price of a gallon of regular gasoline at his business to $3.99 over the weekend.
“Even at $3.99 a gallon, I still had a loss of over $3,000,” he said.
