Autrey, Terrie Q.jpg

As our state legislators return to Baton Rouge this month, one of their first tasks is to review and hear public testimony on the proposed budget. This is the budget that cuts funding to domestic violence programs by another $1.4 million, bringing our total cuts to $2.4 million since last July.
Remember what those figures mean for the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team?
In Gov. Bobby Jindal’s midyear budget cuts in December, we lost $63,000. As a result, we were forced to let two of our staff members go, and we cut costs in several other areas.

Roaf: Post-NFL career aches

in
Ex-Tech star, others pay physical price for success
040713 WILLIE AND FAN.jpg

At times on the Louisiana Tech University practice field last Saturday morning, Willie Roaf could stand for only so long.
Eventually, there would come the time when he would say, “Excuse me,” and then lean up against one of the tall light poles located nearby or on a huge tire affixed to a crane.
Welcome to the life of a former NFL player.
Oh, those glory days in the league were made for scrapbooks and fond memories.
So was the adulation of fans, media and others who appreciated an all-out effort on each and every play.
