MFP reductions put projects on hold

in

The Lincoln Parish school district’s potential construction projects in the Lincoln Parish School Board’s capital outlay plan may be pushed back a year as a result of a 16 percent Minimum Foundation Program reduction said school superintendent Mike Milstead today.
The school district plans on adding a new sixth-grade wing to Ruston Junior High, new emergency generators and a new school board central office. However, after the school board was told it faced a $5.4 million state MFP reduction, Milstead said those projects would have to be delayed.

McFly performs the song at a mid-’50s prom during the time-traveling flick where McFly, who traveled from 1985 back to the 1950s, plays “an oldie. Well it’s an oldie where I come from.”
The song was by St. Louis, Missouri’s own Chuck Berry. His history-defining tune hadn’t yet been created in the film’s timeline, but those who know the song will know that it helped create the genre known as rock ‘n’ roll.
