GRAMBLING — Grambling State University President Frank G. Pogue has announced that he has retired and he is scheduled to work his last day at the university on June 30.
“A lot has been accomplished, and a lot of good things are still happening at Grambling State University,” Pogue said, “but it is time for someone else to lead this fine institution.”
In a prepared statement released to the media and the GSU community, Pogue, who started his tenure as the GSU president as a temporary job to help the institution with a transition, became the permanent president six months after starting.

Local talent from Lincoln Parish brought out the big guns Thursday night as they performed for judges at the Dixie Center for the Arts.
Make no mistake — it takes guts to get in front of a crowd, but participants in the show did so with gusto and enthusiasm.

Just as people had complaints about athletics director Tommy McClelland’s age after he was hired, people have the same reservations with the 23-year-old former Marquette assistant head coach.
Tyler Summitt is no newcomer to women’s basketball. He has been around it his entire life.

Breaking the silence of PTSD

Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

Earlier this week we learned of the second shooting to take place at Fort Hood, this time killing three and wounding 16.
In 2009, another shooter fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others. This was deemed the worst shooting to ever take place on an American military base.
In reports that have been released it has been stated that both men suffered from mental illness.
My question is the terminology “mental illness” as it is associated with our military personnel. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is not a terminology to throw around lightly.
