Smoke alarms save lives

The cold winter months have many people bundled up inside to stay warm, and with fireplaces and heaters on to heat things up, residents face an added danger to finding themselves indoors more than out.
Whether someone tips over a heater or simply forgets to watch a fire burning in their fireplace, the risk of a house fire grows with these heating elements in place, and the only way to be sure everything is being done for residents’ safety is to make sure a smoke alarm is installed properly in each individual’s home.

Courthouse planning on move

in

When the Lincoln Parish Police Jury purchased the old County Market building for $1.5 million in 2009, some might have wondered why.
Were they going into the rental business? The jury purchased the building with a loan from Community Trust Bank, which would be paid off over a nine-year period using money from businesses leasing the building.

As we all sit down to make our New Year’s resolutions for 2012. We all hope we can keep, at least one of them in my case. For many of us we have a sudden urge at the beginning of a new year to start fresh and take care of ourselves and others.
For some reason the holidays come around and the New Year starts and we all feel like being a little more generous. I started thinking about this, with the help of a blind friend of mine from Utah, and how that can relate to blind people.

Yesterday's sands, tomorrow's seeds

BROOKS, BRENDA.jpg

Physicians have said for years that the months of December and January have been the months that most people suffer depression. It seems that people get consumed with the negatives about going back to work, family leaving after the holidays, and not to mention the fact that December is the month most people spend more than they should. It is these sands of yesterday and memories of the year before that keep them in a pool of misery.

While many think of Christmas and New Year’s as a time of giving, the opposite has been true for the two universities located within the boundaries of Lincoln Parish.
Instead of spending the holidays worrying about gifts for their families or what their holiday plans were, administrators from both Grambling State University and Louisiana Tech University spent their Christmas breaks trying to crunch numbers on their budgets after the University of Louisiana System announced that each school would be facing a 5.01 percent budget reduction from the system.
