Leadership club benefits teens

in

As our teens begin to face the decision of what their plans are following high school, they need to be aware that whatever path they choose they will most likely be questioned about their experience in the areas of leadership and service.
If they are involved in 4-H, they will have no problem answering that question when it comes. 4-H already has in place many opportunities for teens to be involved in leadership and service. By actively participating in 4-H, teens will automatically gain memorable experiences in these two areas to the point of not really having to think that hard to answer the question that is sure to come as they head out into the “real world.”
One of the programs that will help teens gain these valuable leadership and service experiences is the Lincoln Parish 4-H Junior Leadership Club. 4-H Jr. Leadership Club is for 4-H members who are in seventh through 12th grade. They meet once a month after school and participate in many other activities throughout the month that will allow them to practice leadership and service skills and have fun doing it. These club members will have the chance to participate in things such as camp counseling, fun trips in and out of state, meeting teens from other areas, networking, scholarship contests and more.

Flying and arrests suits

Happy fall to you all. No, fall does not officially commence until Sept. 23 (according to my calendar), yet when this column appears we have already had our first local football games, Labor Day cookouts and celebration, classes commencing and a wisp of coolness (relatively speaking) in the air. This is my favorite time of year, especially with the advent of the football season and a break in the temperature level.
Before continuing with some funny stories, may I humbly remind us all to watch out for the school traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular. Drive more carefully; put down the blankety-blank cell phones; observe the slowing and stopped school buses; and generally, care and watch out for our students.
As from time to time it is appropriate to share news from the “lighter” side, I thought I would do so this week in sharing some funny stories from the legal world. I recall the lawyer jokes, but remember, it takes a client, not a lawyer, to file a suit. How ‘bout this one?

Continue Tech, GSU game momentum

On Labor Day weekend, Lincoln Parish’s two universities played each other for the first time in football.
That was over in Shreveport in the highly-promoted “Port City Classic,” in which Louisiana Tech and Grambling State faced off in front of an estimated 38,000 fans at Independence Stadium.
On Saturday, the parish teams are back in action and this time on their own playing fields.
