Former town of Grambling Assistant City Clerk Elizabeth Jones was back in court Thursday as she faced a bond revocation hearing.
But the bond revocation request was withdrawn during proceedings.
The request came after Lincoln Parish Assistant District Attorney Cary Brown said that his office had received information that Jones had traveled out of state while out on bond after being instructed by the court not to do so.
A word from the principal, Patrice Hilton: “What a great start to our 2015-16 school year.
We have 315 students and 50 faculty and staff. Our kindergarten students have had their testing done and are adjusting well to the school routines.
The first and second grade students have come this year with wonderful manners, attitudes and ready to learn.
Our Hillcrest faculty and staff have put in many hours to see that we were ready for students.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced last week that USDA is seeking applications for loans and grants to help rural businesses create jobs and spur economic development. The funding is being provided under the Rural Economic Development Loan and Grant (REDLG) program.
“Boosting access to capital sparks job creation and revitalizes the rural economy,” said Vilsack. “USDA works in partnership with cooperatives and utilities across America, and we intend to utilize this program to leverage federal and private investments to put rural residents to work.”
Eligible recipients are USDA rural utilities program borrowers. Those recipients pass the funds to local organizations.
