Looking at the city of Crowley’s budget for the new fiscal year, there is not much difference than this past year’s, except for one thing civil servants have been in search of for months: a raise.
There is a 4 percent raise for all current full-time employees except for the police, who will receive a 6 percent increase if the budget is ultimately adopted.
In a landmark opinion, a divided Supreme Court ruled Friday that states cannot ban same-sex marriage, establishing a new civil right and handing gay rights advocates a victory that until very recently would have seemed unthinkable.
However, Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said not to expect same-sex marriages any time soon in Louisiana.

New officers include from left, Pat Miers, president; Tracy Young, president-elect; Susan Comeaux, secretary; Debbie Spallino, treasurer; and Suzy Webb, Michael Doughty, Peggy Sandidge and Kirk Schexnider, members of the board of directors.
After a year of projects and a district conference, you would have thought the Rotary Club of Crowley would have opted for an easy banquet Wednesday night.
That wasn’t the case. With the backdrop of the Grand Opera House, Rotarians welcomed music from Trevin Trahan during its cocktail social prior to the banquet and were eager to enjoy the night with flair.
