Stay sharp by reading this summer

That’s the type of reading the Lincoln Parish Library’s summer reading program emphasizes. Kids are encouraged to read all kinds of books — whatever they’re interested in — and to keep track of what and how much they’ve read during the summer months.
Then, prizes are awarded based on the end-of-summer total. This is a positive and fun way to keep kids reading even when school is out. Plus, the library has coordinated many activities and workshops scheduled for the next few months that tie into the reading program theme, “Get a Clue at Your Library.”

Perfect parents don't exist

Most everything we learn about parenting comes from our parents or grandparents. While this information may be OK, it is still dated information. Technology has made some fascinating discoveries over the past few decades in all aspects of life. Parenting is no different. So why should parents of today base their parenting skills on information from 30 or 40 years ago when there is much newer information out there.

Summer dangers surround youngsters

We’ll always encounter children on bikes or running and playing.
Sometimes kids aren’t aware of the dangers of simply crossing the road, or they’re just so caught up trying to get the ball, they may forget to look and see if it’s safe to cross.”
Criminal activity among young people also increases with the heat of summer, Hawkins said, with more instances of vandalism, thefts and fighting taking place.

Gruden enjoys visit to Grambling

“I am a Tiger now,” said the sixth-year leader of the NFL’s Bucs after taking nearly an hour-long tour of the famed Lincoln Parish campus Sunday afternoon, courtesy of ex-Tigers’ football stars Doug Williams and James ‘Shack’ Harris. “I had always wanted to come here and see first-hand where all of these great athletes had played. I can truly say this is one of the most enjoyable and meaningful days of my life, to feel the tremendous sense of history and accomplishments that have been a part of this great school for so many years.”

Support Tech, GSU athletics

Dooley’s ’Dawgs also have a six-game slate of home contests. As outgoing athletic director Jim Oakes said, the team’s slate is one of its best ever. The opportunity to show off the team’s crop of talent in front of an SEC team in prime time on national television before a sell-out crowd is huge for Tech’s name nationally, and we should be thinking about how we can support that effort.
The six home games also represent the most for the school since it joined the Division 1-A ranks in 1989, making season tickets a heck of a deal.

The joys of drinking coffee

On a sticky, oppressive southern summer day, I find it best to curl up on a worn sofa or armchair in a favored subdued coffee house with an iced tea, iced coffee or cold chai latte.
Of course, the available cold coffee options don’t stop there, but I would not want to harangue my readers with an endless list. That’s what the menu at Starbucks is for, after all. And those seemingly endless beverage lists can be quite confusing for the uninitiated or for the traditionalists who drink only the classic cup of black coffee.

Lincoln, nearby parishes overflow with things to do

“Definitely with the gas prices being what they are, it gives an opportunity for people to explore what’s close to home,” said Timothy Bush, director of sales and marketing for the Ruston-Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau.
“In Ruston and Lincoln Parish, there are a lot of attractions people can enjoy that won’t cost a lot of money.”
Bush said one of the parish’s best-kept secrets is the Louisiana Military Museum, located at 201 Memorial Drive in Ruston.
“We take people there, and they’re always amazed that Ruston has a place with so much history,” he said.
