Auditors in Downsville

Park grants focus of attention

State auditors were in Downsville last week, looking into two grants administered by a state agency.
They were looking specifically for irregularities in spending on work at Downsville Recreation Park and Bryan Park with funds that came from the National Park Service to the Louisiana Office of State Parks and on to the village.
Tom Cole, first assistant to Legislative Auditor Daryl Purpera, said the visit by staff auditors was brought about by concerns over payments made to Downsville Mayor Reggie Skains.

City acquires military museum

Officials envision facility becoming star tourist attraction

The North Louisiana Military Museum now belongs to the city of Ruston.
Though the final separation of the museum from the secretary of state’s museum system must be approved by the Legislature, unofficially, the relationship has been dissolved and the museum turned over to the city, Lewis Love, chairman of the Friends of the North Louisiana Military Museum, said Monday.
Officials say bringing the museum under the city’s wing will allow it to grow and become a star tourist attraction for the area.

Note to bond commission: Just say yes

in

Thursday is the big day. That’s when the Louisiana Bond Commission will decide whether Ruston will be allowed to issue up to $34 million in incremental revenue sales tax bonds to finance transportation projects in the tax incremental district.
The commission was supposed to have made that decision in December, but in a last-minute move, pulled the request because officials couldn’t get their heads around the concept of a TID. In fact, Ruston’s request didn’t formally get on Thursday’s agenda until Tuesday afternoon.

Reader writes about Obamacare

in

Well, the cat is out of the bag.
The Republican Party has put its targets on the Affordable Care Act.
They want it repealed.
No one should be surprised.
That’s what the president-elect ran on, and that’s what Congress is set to do.
That means 21 million families will lose their health care. Either part of it, or all of it.
I will lose my supplemental insurance, and I expect to become sicker and sicker until that day I die.
My son will lose his insurance and he will become sicker, as well.
