GRAMBLING — The town of Grambling is seeking $575,000 from the State Bond Commission.
“This loan will be coming from Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality,” Grambling Mayor Edward Jones said. “But in order for DEQ to extend us the loan, it has to go through the state bond commission for approval.”
In 2011, Bethel Christian School worked to offer the best education possible to its students. Our Bible-based A-Beka curriculum was expanded to include Bob Jones University materials and Glencoe Pre-Algebra. Keyboarding and computer application coursework were added to the curriculum. The TOPS curriculum is now being followed in the high-school grades, and weekly chapel services are led by local pastors, youth leaders, etc. Dual Enrollment English is available for those students wishing to receive both high school and college credit. Two online tools (Louisiana Virtual School and EDUSS) are utilized. The LEAP, Standford and EOC testing are followed.
DUBACH — Council members for the Town of Dubach played a game of “not it” as they discussed who should be appointed as mayor pro-tem.
Council member Hattie Graham currently holds the position — which entails taking over the mayor’s duties in his absence — but her appointment expires at the end of 2012.
Graham informed Mayor Bob Jensen that she did not wish to continue as mayor pro-tem.
