Here is the board talking about passing the budget at a Wednesday school board meeting
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is accepting applications for the 2017 youth waterfowl lottery hunts on White Lake Wetlands Conservation Area in Vermilion Parish.
There is no charge for the LDWF-sponsored hunts on Nov. 4-5, provided as a quality experience for young waterfowl hunters. The participants in the hunts will be determined by a lottery drawing.
Applications for the lottery should be submitted to LDWF before close of business on Sept. 14.
