Joint effort proves worth

It’s amazing what a little cooperation can do.

Take, for instance, the multi-parish law enforcement task force that conducted street operations in Lincoln, Union and Ouachita parishes this month. The three-night Operation Spring Fling ended in 160 arrests, along with the seizure of a variety of illicit drugs and nine firearms that officials say were used in illegal narcotics activities.

Most of the arrests — 100, to be exact — were for alleged drug crimes.

“Everybody realizes, given what we’ve seen, drugs continue to be a problem,” Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone said.

Hawley, Heather.jpg

Every little kid has a hero.
Some choose Superman, some Wolverine. I chose someone a little different, and much closer to home — my dad.
Some of the fondest childhood memories I have involve sitting in an airport terminal waiting for a certain plane to arrive.
I know, it sounds funny, right?
While I can’t remember how many times my mom, my brother and I sat in cold plastic chairs counting the people as they walked though our part of the airport, I remember being excited.

This Father’s Day remembrance

Rogers, Randy.jpg

Mike Rutherford of Mike & the Mechanics once wrote:
Every generation/Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations/Come beating on your door
I know that I’m a prisoner/To all my father held so dear
I know that I’m a hostage/To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him/In the living years
It was not always easy growing up the son of one born of The Great Depression — when his families and friends were jobless and hungry — in financial ruin. Because of it, out family lived as though it was bound to happen again any day.
