LOUISIANA (NBC33) —
EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH - The money problems continue at Southern University. A week after declaring a financial emergency, professors and faculty says there's less money in their checks than expected. Some faculty say their checks took a 20 percent hit. Administrators say it's a mistake and it's been corrected, but the news isn't all good. Chancellor James Llorens says down the road all faculties can expect less in their check because declaring a financial emergency allows administrators to take ten percent from faculty.
LIVINGSTON PARISH - Denham Springs Police still need help finding an armed robber. The robbery happened yesterday afternoon at Ba-ba's Convenience Store located on the 24-hundred block of Florida Boulevard.
