Bussey: A fisheries’ makeover

in
13.jpg

Bussey Lake, or Bussey Brake as it’s locally known, is a 2200 acre body of water sitting in a cotton field in Morehouse Parish. Until recently, the lake was owned by International Paper Company which needed lake water for the paper manufacturing process.
The mill was shut down a few years ago and the water was no longer needed. In a benevolent gesture, the company donated the lake to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to be utilized by the public. The only problem is the lake is a “gar hole” literally.

Family violence and the holidays

in

The holidays. What does that phrase bring to mind? For me, it would be sweet family memories, decorating, special recipes and Christmas Eve services at church. It would be the smell of pine, the warmth of a crackling fire and the Christmas songs we grew up singing.
But for a family struggling with domestic violence, the holidays often have a completely different meaning.
