Raise music awareness

While many students excel on the football field or basketball courts, others have different talents that may not be as well recognized. One of those talents is music, and whether it be in the choir or band, students with musical abilities also share their talents with everyone in their life.
Music is just as important as athletics, and with March being Music in Our Schools month, we should take time to thank a music teacher or choir director for involving area students in the activity.

If you’re like me, you probably drive your reliable vehicle to work every day, and the thoughts of your list of things to do for the day are running through your head. Then it happens. You observe the red light, you stop, you sigh ever so loudly as you look down at your watch and you look to the right. There it is! That brand new vehicle you have had your eyes on.

Adjudicate, don't legislate

Juneau, Dan.jpg

Two recent Louisiana Supreme Court decisions have sent a clear message to the lower courts (in particular to the Third Circuit Court of Appeal): “Adjudicate, don’t legislate.”  
In the first of those decisions, Oliver v. Magnolia Clinic, the majority told the lower courts that “trial courts and courts of appeal are bound to follow the last expression of law of the Louisiana Supreme Court.” In this case, the lower courts had not. The opinion went on to revisit its reasoning in a prior case to remind the courts of their obligation to follow the latest expression of law regarding the constitutionality of the state’s $500,000 cap on medical malpractice claims.

Millsap making own mark

Ex-Tech star isn’t trying to retrace Malone’s footsteps with Jazz
031812 Signing Item C.jpg

PHILADELPHIA—Thankfully, the comparisons have finally died down. Paul Millsap no longer gets mentioned in the same breath as Karl Malone, even though he went to the same school (Louisiana Tech) as “The Mailman,’’ even though he’s playing for the same Utah Jazz team as the NBA’s second leading all-time scorer.
Not that he ever tried to be.
It was patently unfair for the kid from Monroe to be linked to one of the game’s all-time greats. But you never heard Paul Millsap complain. In fact you probably never heard him say much of everything, simply because that went against his upbringing.
