Cool weather will be here soon.There are many things I love about fall; cool weather, the beautiful red, yellow, and orange leaves, and the State Fair of Louisiana.
The State Fair of Louisiana located in Shreveport is full of excitement. Of course there are the rides, meeting up with friends, the shows, the animals, the exhibits, and all the delicious food. I’m especial fond of the cotton candy.
You don’t want to miss the 4-H livestock shows and the 4-H talent show. This year’s State Fair promises all of this and more.

When intense rain and thunderstorms resulted in the flooding of Woodson Hall in March 2016, the English and Foreign Languages Department was among several Grambling State University units that for all intents and purposes became homeless.
Since that time, faculty offices and classes have been scattered across campus, making life for members and students in the department anything but easy, according to Dr. Beatrice McKinsey, the interim department head.
The dislocation of the department has had “a big effect,” McKinsey said, managing to laugh just a bit.

Bernard, Donna.jpg

John hit Mary. She went to the hospital and received stitches and John said he wouldn’t do it again. Mary went back home.
Of course, this story is not factual but a representation of what we see every day at DART. As victim advocates tell this story, the same question is asked over and over: Why did Mary go back?
