Louisiana distributes almost $55 million in federal pandemic unemployment relief

(The Center Square) – The Louisiana Workforce Commission distributed almost $54.8 million in federal pandemic benefits to almost 180,000 state residents during the first two weeks of the program, the LWC says.

Federal pandemic unemployment compensation provides an additional $300 per week on top of regular state unemployment benefits. Congress and President Donald Trump approved the program during the closing days of last year, and the Workforce Commission began distributing FPUC funds Jan. 4.

Across all programs, the Workforce Commission has distributed more than $166 million in unemployment benefits since the beginning of this year.

Louisiana has doled out a total of around $7 billion in unemployment benefits since the COVID-19 pandemic began, mostly federal dollars. While federal relief has helped to prop up the nation’s economy, the programs have proven to be tempting targets for fraud.

Local NSU student recreating campus in popular video game

Local NSU student recreating campus in popular video game

The Northwestern State University Student Services Center is the first campus building to be recreated in Minecraft, a popular video game.

Students, faculty and staff are teaming up to bring the Northwestern State University campus to the world of Minecraft.

Jayce Gentry, president of the NSU Gamer’s Guild, a student organization made of people who enjoy playing a variety of video and card games, explains that Minecraft is a PC game where you can build anything you want.

“Think of it like Legos but in a video game,” said Gentry, a junior computer information systems major with a concentration in cyber security from Belmont.

“The game got a huge spike in popularity around 2012 and is now one of the most popular games of all time. Tons of people play it to build anything from skyscrapers to pirate ships or anything else they can come up with.”

Robert Hable announces run for Many Mayor

Robert Hable announces run for Many Mayor

Robert Hable

Longtime local businessman Robert Hable, Executive Manager of Foy Motors in Many, has announced his candidacy for Mayor of Many.

“We have just gone through a year of everything being turned totally upside down, and I want to be a part of a growing, thriving community that serves all of its citizens,” Hable said. “There are a lot of great people in Sabine Parish, we have a lot of diversity, and I’ve been able to make a wonderful life here because of that. So, it came down to a choice: I could put my head in the sand, pretend everything will be okay, and say, ‘You know what, I’m not gonna do this’ or I could dig deep into my heart and give everything I’ve got to do all the good I can for this town. And that’s what I intend to do.”

A protégé of the late Julian Foy, Hable came to Many from Shreveport in March 1998 to work at Foy Chevrolet after getting his Business Administration degree at Northwestern State University.
