By Matt Vespa

It’s a good week for the Democrats. That’s what fellow Democrats, anti-Trump stooges, and members of the media think about this whirlwind week of news. Michael Cohen has a plea deal over alleged campaign finance violations, along with bank and tax fraud charges.

Paul Manafort, Trump’s short-lived campaign chief, was found guilty on eight counts of bank and tax fraud charges as well. For Manafort, these allegations predated the 2016 campaign. For Cohen, the alleged payments for these reported affairs, while slimy, is not necessarily illegal.

School enrollment steady

Early enrollment figures for the public and private school students in LaSalle Parish shows a very slight decrease from the past school year, according to figures released this week. Enrollment in public and private schools decreased from 2,848 last year to 2,845 this year – a decrease of only three students.

However, when you add in the students who are home schooled, plus other students enrolled in private schools not seeking state approval in the parish, the total number of students in the parish is much higher. It is estimated that another 100 or so students fall into this category.
