Walker Budget Plan An ‘Uphill Battle’

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Bill Walker’s proposal to finance state government by implementing an income tax and using the Permanent Fund is continuing to face criticism. The proposed income tax would be 6% of a worker’s federal income tax. If it were implemented, Alaska would be the only state to take this kind of approach, which would allow the rate to increase or decrease depending on the national rate. It would be Alaska’s first income tax in 35 years and provide roughly $200 million a year in state revenue. Walker is also proposing changes to the Permanent Fund which would cut PFDs to roughly $1,000 per year in the near future. The PFD has averaged $1,150 per year over its lifetime.center_img Walker wants Alaskans to help cut the projected deficit of $3.5 billion, but House Finance co-chair Steve Thompson says the budget should be cut further before taxing residents.last_img read more

Bearkats survive another nailbiter

first_imgBossier coach Jeremiah Williams has been around basketball a long time as a player and a coach.He says he’s never seen anything like what the Bossier Bearkats been through over the last week.Friday night, Bossier advanced to the Class 3A semifinals with a 49-48 victory over the St. Louis Saints in Lake Charles.With Bossier leading by two, St. Louis’ Christian Fontenot was fouled shooting a 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds left.Williams described Fontenot as the Saints’ best shooter.Fontenot made the first free throw and missed the second. Amazingly, he also missed the third.And it still wasn’t over.St. Louis’ Kelvin Henry got his hand on the ball and tried what Williams described as a “wild, over-the-head tip” that almost went in.“It would’ve counted,” Williams said.The St. Louis game came 48 hours after Bossier defeated Parkview Baptist 48-47 in overtime. In that one, the Bearkats survived a 3-pointer by Parkview that sent the game into overtime and a shot inside in the final seconds of OT.Bossier’s 57-53 first-round game against De La Salle also went down to the wire.Williams said there was a lot of emotion on both sides after Friday’s game.Jere Grice/Press-TribuneBossier junior Kentrell Hardy, shown playing against Parkview Baptist Wednesday, scored 23 points in the Bearkats’ 49-48 victory over St. Louis in the Class 3A quarterfinals Friday night in Lake Charles.“You go from the sickness of possibly losing the game to the exhilaration of winning,” he said. “It took me awhile for it to set in. We got halfway home before it set in.”With senior star guard Devonte Hall still suffering the effects of an illness, junior guard Kentrell Hardy came up big for Bossier.He scored 23 points, including five 3-pointers. Hardy made one of two free throws with 13 seconds left to give Bossier the 49-47 lead.“He shot the ball well,” Williams said.Brandon Harris hit two big 3-pointers and finished with eight points. Hall also scored eight.“He just tried to gut it out,” Williams said.Thanks mainly to Hall’s 14 first-half points, Bossier led 29-20 at the break.Bossier still led by nine, 39-30, with five minutes left in the game before the Saints rallied.“We didn’t do as well as we should have down the stretch,” Williams said. “But we made enough plays to be in position to win the game. They did a great job of initiating the run. We held on and scored just enough points to withstand it.”Bossier (26-7) faces University Lab (24-7) of Baton Rouge in the semifinals Thursday at the Top 28 in Lake Charles.

He wants to achieve as a group and as a team. His teammates enjoy him and root for him to have the kind of days that he’s had.”Asked at his weekly press conference about the Heisman talk about Fournette, Miles said: “Yeah, I’m for national awards to our players, and I think Leonard is a good person and somebody who could easily be considered for a number of national awards. That’s not my focus. I think our team recognizes that if we have success and continue to do the things we’re capable of doing, there will be a lot of national awards sprinkled throughout the team. Leonard would be if not the first consideration, maybe the strongest consideration.” USA TODAYThe Football Four Podcast deconstructs Alabama and more Georgia’s Nick Chubb, fourth in the nation at 156 yards a game in three outings, is a distant second but did pick up the other first-place nods. Fournette, who has scored six touchdowns, was left off one ballot.Two Mississippi players have four points each. Three Notre Dame players received one vote each. Fifteen players received votes, not unusual this early the season.Mobile users click here for voting results.<!–iframe–> Early season college football stats can be misleading because top teams often schedule lesser opponents. At least this year, that cannot be said about the statistics LSU running back Leonard Fournette is compiling.The Tigers did schedule an opener against McNeese State from the second-tier Championship Subdivision. But storms forced cancellation of that game. Instead, LSU opened with SEC West rivals Mississippi State and Auburn.All Fournette did was average 193.5 yards in those games, almost 30 yards a game ahead of anyone else in the Bowl Subdivision. His fast start has catapulted the sophomore from New Orleans to the top of the season’s first USA TODAY Sports Heisman Trophy Survey. Fournette earned all but three of the 26 first-place votes from Heisman voters who work for Gannett properties.Follow the road to the 2015 College Football Playoff at The Football Four, our home to rate and debate the nation’s best.last_img read more
