The time it took to board an airplane became a little longer, security was heightened at major events and large cities, and many held their breath in angst as they neared government buildings, military bases or boarded a means of mass transit. For most, the new rules of our society were a necessary evil; after all, we were at war with terror.

Parish strong at preparation

Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

As an Eagle Scout, I know all about the importance of being prepared.
We’re fortunate that here in Lincoln Parish, there are many people who feel the same way.
That showed Tuesday as area emergency agencies conducted a mass casualty drill at the Ruston Public Works Complex.
The smell of gunpowder and sounds of gunfire mixed with screams of horrified anguish filled the air around the complex as officials dealt with a mock scenario involving a shooter entering the facility and shooting anyone and everyone in sight.

in

Kindergarten
Easter is over but the kindergarten had fun finding their eggs. Due to the weather some of us had to look for them in our classrooms. Spring Break gave us a chance to rest and relax.
We are in our last six weeks of school. We have learned letter sounds and how to blend them together. Now we are reading! We can read many, many books.
We are using our number skills to learn and subtract. We are using flash cards to help learn our facts. Story problems make addition and subtraction more fun!
