teacher salaries to the regional average. Most of the board debate centered not on the $101 million in raises, but on the $39 million in unrestricted money that Edwards proposed for school districts. Superintendent of Education John White recommended $3 million of the money be steered to technical education programs and dual enrollment courses that help high school students earn college credit. “The need and the evidence that I see in front of us is that every time we give an increase to dual enrollment, more kids sign up,” White said. Superintendents and other school officials opposed the $3 million earmark, saying they haven’t received new dollars in five years, even as their retirement, health care and other costs continue to rise. They wanted districts to have flexibility to determine how to spend the money. Education board member Gary Jones, a former superintendent, said rural districts in particular are struggling to meet basic expenses: “Every dollar is critical to them.” Board members voted 6-3 for a public school financing formula that didn’t include the $3 million earmark sought by White for technical education and dual enrollment programs.

Trump vs. California immigration suit heads to appeals court SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Trump administration will try to persuade a U.S. appeals court on Wednesday to block California laws aimed at protecting immigrants, seeking a win in one of numerous lawsuits between the White House and the Democratic-dominated state. At issue in the hearing before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is a 2018 administration lawsuit over three California laws that extended protections to people in the country illegally. The legal challenge was part of the administration’s broader efforts to crack down on socalled sanctuary jurisdictions that it says allow criminals to stay on the streets. California officials say their policies limiting cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities promote trust between immigrant communities and law enforcement and encourage witnesses and victims to report crime. The U.S. Department of Justice argued in court documents that the Con-

stitution gives the federal government pre-eminent power to regulate immigration, and the three laws obstruct those efforts. “The bills, individually and collectively, mark an extraordinary and intentional assault on the federal government’s enforcement of the immigration laws,” Justice Department attorneys said in a filing. U.S. Judge John Mendez in Sacramento kept two of the laws in place in July but blocked part of a third. He ruled that California could limit police cooperation with immigration officials and require inspections of detention facilities where immigrants are held, but the state could not bar private employers from allowing immigration officials on their premises without a warrant. The Trump administration is asking a threejudge panel of the 9th Circuit to entirely block all three laws. The panel will hear arguments but will not immediately rule.

OPINION

‘A New Hope’ On Monday afternoon, Minden Mayor Terry Gardner and the Minden City Council met in a workshop to discuss procedures for the hiring of civil service employees. While that was the stated agenda, everyone knew the subject of the council’s rejection of the hiring of two police officers and the mayor’s sub- DAVID SPECHT sequent veto would be, “the elephant in the room.” To be honest, I was not looking forward to attending this workshop. I did not know if I was walking in to a place where people would simply “dig in” with regard to their positions and we would witness gridlock. To my surprise, although it took several minutes to begin, Gardner and the Council began discussing the problem and worked towards a common solution — both on the stated agenda item and the proceedings of March 3 and 4. When District D Councilman Keith Beard told his colleagues that he had “made mistakes” during the Monday, March 3 Council meeting, it was followed by acknowledgments from the remaining members of the council and the mayor. At that moment, I knew there was hope.

Politics is a dirty game, and often political perception can outweigh common sense decisions. Yesterday, however, through the discussion and introspection by all, common sense prevailed. I cannot attach motive to Gardner‘s decision to rescind his veto. He is the only one who ultimately knows why he is doing that. This is what I do know. I watched him think long and hard during the discussion at the workshop. He even went as far to say, “I am thinking about it,” referring to rescinding his veto as things progressed. From my point of view, Gardner’s decision allows the mayor and council to move forward in the best interest of the City of Minden. Our city is facing some dire realities with regard to the annual budget. Sales tax collections have trended downward over the past several months, and the city is facing increased retirement and insurance premiums. We cannot afford a divided city government. This council will have to work together and work through many issues over the next four years. I am so thankful that they were able to work through this most recent one. It gives me hope for the future of our city. David Specht is the President of Specht Newspaers Inc.

FROM THE BACK PORCH

LOCAL BUSINESS

A small serving of vegetables with love Sharing meals with friends is one of the easiest ways to show our love for them. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate meal, simple and tasty is all that is needed. Your host’s hospitality is the most important thing. Several days ago, I received a call and my friend said, “I’ve made some soup. Would you all like to come over and share some with me?” We had had a very busy day and there were things we still needed to take care of, but this was an invitation I didn’t want to turn down. So we agreed on a time and Hubby and I went over to have a simple meal with her. But it was a meal shared with love and that made it much more meaningful. Our friend, who is experiencing health FANNIE MOORE problems, along with other situations, was extending a hand of friendship. And we felt honored to have been invited to share the meal with her. A meal of home made beef-vegetable soup with corn bread was as wonderful as if she had spent all day cooking an elaborate meal. I was reminded of the verse from Proverbs that says, “Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred.” Prov.15:17 NIV. We enjoyed the meal and especially enjoyed the “catching up” with a friend. It was a great evening. This reminds me of the times I have opened our home to friends for lunch and a time of visiting. Those were some enjoyable days and I miss them tremendously. It seems that as we get older we tend to let those kinds of moments pass us by. We may give ourselves excuses for not doing this anymore, but after the simple meal with our friend , I am convinced there is no reason for me to stop inviting friends over. I might try to excuse this by citing health issues. But, everyone has some

kind of health issues and perhaps accommodations can be made for these. This is something I certainly need to begin work on. Usually I would plan a lunch get together near Valentine’s Day and again in the fall. These are some of the least busy times in our lives, not around major holidays, so easier to work into everyone’s schedules. Table decorations are easily put together by utilizing red and white flowers, napkins and dishes for the February lunch, and an abundance of fall decorations are available and can be used with yellows, browns and oranges in dishes, napkins etc. for the fall lunch. I tried to have at least one new item on the menu each time. It could be a new salad, a simple but pretty dessert, or a soup that I had not served before. I think one of the favorite soups was the corn and shrimp chowder. It was easy to make and was a rich, creamy dish. For desserts, they ranged from cheesecakes to pies or others. One of the easiest and prettiest was meringues served filled with berries and topped with real whipped cream. The meringues could be made ahead and placed in a zip-lock bag and filled just before serving. The meals need not be elaborate, just a variety from time to time.You will keep your guests wondering what will be on the menu the next time. Now, as I contemplate the good times we had at these get-togethers, I feel compelled to get back in the habit of inviting friends over. As I think of what will be easy as well as delicious, I seem to go back to the corn and shrimp chowder. Add a simple salad, crusty bread and a dessert and that would suffice. Okay, now I need to look at the calendar and find a day when not much is going on and friends are more apt to be available. Then, call and invite them and offer them a “small serving of vegetables with love”. And I promise it will be better than a fattened calf with hatred. Proverbs 15:17 assures me of that. Fannie Moore is a journalist who lives in Shongaloo where she enjoys writing on a variety of subjects.

Ronaldo nets hat trick to send Juventus into CL quarters

TURIN, Italy (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo made a mockery of Atletico Madrid’s vaunted defense, and then mocked its coach as well. Ronaldo scored a hat trick against the normally resilient Spanish side to send Juventus into the Champions League quarterfinals with a 3-0 win on Tuesday as the Bianconeri fought back from a two-goal first-leg defeat. The former Real Madrid player outjumped Atletico’s defenders to score a header in each half and then converted a late penalty for his first hat trick since joining Juventus in the summer — and just when they needed it most. He celebrated at the final whistle by mimicking the obscene gesture Atletico coach Diego Simeone made after the Spanish side’s second goal in the first leg — having the final say against a rival he so often defeated as a Real Madrid player. Simeone was fined 20,000 euros ($22,500) by UEFA for improper conduct and it remains to be seen whether Ronaldo will face a similar punishment. It was Ronaldo’s eighth hat trick in the Champions League, moving him level with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and demonstrating why Juventus paid Real Madrid 112 million euros (then $131.5 million) for the Portugal star who has dominated the competition in recent years. It was the first time Juventus came back from a two-goal defeat in the first leg. “Maybe that’s why Juventus signed me,” Ronaldo said. “To help it do things that it had never done before. This result is a great push for the future, we’re strong and we showed it.” The 34-year-old Ronaldo has won the Champions League five times, including in four of the last five seasons. Without him, Madrid was eliminated by Ajax last week. However, Ronaldo had only scored one goal in the compe-

tition for Juventus until Tuesday. “It would have been strange if Ronaldo’s Champions League season ended with only one goal,” Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. “Juventus signed him for nights like this and tonight he made the difference.” For Atletico, it was more heartache in the competition in the year the final is being held in its Wanda Metropolitano Stadium — and more pain caused by Ronaldo. While at Madrid, Ronaldo helped beat Atletico in two Champions League finals. He has also now scored 25 goals against Atletico in his career. “He’s the best in the world,” Simeone said. “We suffered, as happened to them in the first leg. They’re through and that’s right. They deserved it ... Maybe I didn’t manage to transmit to my players what we needed.” Manchester City is also through to the final eight after routing Schalke 7-0 to progress 10-2 on aggregate. Juventus thought it had taken the lead less than three minutes into the game but VAR confirmed that Ronaldo

had fouled Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak before Giorgio Chiellini fired in the rebound. Italy forward Federico Bernardeschi was handed a start instead of Paulo Dybala for Juventus, and he responded by putting in a cross from the left for Ronaldo to head in at the far post in the 27th minute. Bernardeschi also had several chances to extend Juve’s lead — notably with an audacious overhead kick in the 35th minute which flew narrowly over. Ronaldo went close again shortly before halftime when he again outjumped everyone but headed Leonardo Spinazzola’s cross wide of the right post. Ronaldo did get the second goal three minutes after the break. Joao Cancelo put in a cross from the right and although Oblak clawed Ronaldo’s header out from under his crossbar, goal-line technology confirmed the ball had crossed the line. Juventus went all out attack and got the decisive third goal four minutes from time. Bernardeschi was nudged over in the penalty area and Ronaldo converted the resulting spot kick to send the home fans wild.

Minden 6, Union Parish 1 John Volentine picked up his third win of the season in Farmerville on Tuesday night, going seven innings without allowing an earned run as the Tide picked up another victory. Volentine struck out five to improve his record this season on the mound to 3-1. Union Parish scored once in the top of the second, but the Tide responded in the bottom of the inning as Austin King hit a two-run home run to give Minden the lead. The Tide scored two more when Volentine singled later in the inning. Minden is now 8-2 this season, and will play at home against Woodlawn next Monday. Glenbrook 14, Acadiana Christian 9 Glenbrook ran off with the lead late in the game in a 14-9 victory over Acadiana Christian on Tuesday. The Apaches were down 4-3 in the top of the sixth inning when Cale Hollis singled on the first pitch of the at bat, scoring two runs. After Glenbrook scored one run in the top of the eighth, Acadiana Christian answered

with one of their own. Glenbrook scored on an error. Acadiana Christian then answered when Savoie was hit by a pitch, driving in a run. Glenbrook Apaches Varsity collected 13 hits. Peyton Wells, Jackson Powell, Clemons, and Maddox Mandino all collected multiple hits for Glenbrook. Wells led Glenbrook with three hits in four at bats. Powell led the Apaches with two stolen bases as they ran wild on the base paths with seven total steals. The Apaches improve to 4-2 this season and play on Saturday at Riverfield Academy at 12 p.m. Lakeside 7, Jonesboro-Hodge 2 Lakeside was victorious over Jonesboro-Hodge on Tuesday night to pick up their fourth win of the season. Lakeside got things moving in the first inning, when Michael Watts grounded out, scoring one run. The Warriors scored four in the inning to establish a big lead. Nathan Willis pitched Lakeside to victory. He surrendered one run on four hits over four innings, striking out four and walking zero. Brian Foster threw three innings in relief out of the bullpen.

Lakeside saw the ball well today, racking up eight hits in the game. Cade Boley and Bradley Dick all managed multiple hits for Lakeside. Dick and Boley each managed two hits to lead the Warriors. Quitman 2, North Webster 1 Tuesday’s game against Quitman was a heartbreaker for North Webster, as they lost the lead late in a 2-1 defeat. The game was tied at one with Quitman batting in the bottom of the fifth when Matt Miller laid down a sacrifice bunt, scoring one run. In the top of the fourth inning, North Webster tied the game at one when Sawyer Howard singled on a 1-1 count, scoring one run. Mason Haynes took the loss for North Webster. He lasted six innings, allowing seven hits and two runs while striking out four. Kade Garmany, Cason Mahaffey, Conner Audirsch, and Howard all picked up hits for the Knights. North Webster didn’t commit a single error in the field. The loss drops the Knights’ record to 7-5. They play next on Thursday in Springhill against Bradley, Ar. at 6 p.m.
