Spring has sprung, and summer is right around the corner.
Residents looking for spring gardening tips or summer ideas are in for a treat with the April edition of Living Well magazine, which can be found inside.
Living Well Editor Elizabeth DeGrie said this edition is filled to the brim with good information. From ways to stay active to parenting information, there is a little bit of everything in this edition.

On Saturday, more than 100 area residents came out to help fight for the health of babies everywhere by participating in the 2012 March for Babies, sponsored by the March of Dimes.
After engaging in a brief warm-up, participants left the Maxie Lambright Intramural Center, walking towards Joe Aillet Stadium.
The trek encompassed all of Louisiana Tech University’s main campus and ended back at the intramural center. The entire march lasted approximately 3.5 miles. Food and refreshments were awaiting the participants upon their return.

Reforming education

Local private schools discuss voucher bill

No one is quite certain exactly what effect the new state legislation allowing students from schools with School Performance Scores of C, D or F to use state vouchers to attend private schools will have on Lincoln Parish.
Overall, most legislators and education leaders believe it will have minimal effect, and information recently released by the Louisiana Department of Education, as well as comments from local private institution leaders, make it appear that will indeed be the case.
The leaders of the parish’s three private schools – Cedar Creek School, Bethel Christian School and New Living Word School — all say that the rigorous admission standards that are currently in place will remain in place.

Display serves as warning

The Lives Lost to Alcohol silhouettes temporarily displayed next to Temple Baptist Church serve as a reminder of the dangers of what can happen when you drink and drive.
These silhouettes are important when it comes to making people aware of those dangers, and illustrate a stark reality by the fact that each one represents an alcohol-related death in Lincoln Parish in recent years.
When talking about drinking and driving, it is easy to feel like it would never happen to us, like we would never be the victim of such a thing or get behind the wheel of a car after consuming alcohol.

Resident criticizes leadership

in

Was he brazen or not? Recently our President challenged the Supreme Court to uphold his health care overhaul. He says this was a law passed by a “strong majority” of a democratically elected Congress. Was it? I thought it was straight down party lines. All Democrats voted for it, without even reading it; all Republicans voted against it. That doesn’t sound like a strong majority to me.
Why is our President issuing a challenge to the Supreme Court to approve what he wants? As a former social studies teacher, I always taught that Congress made the laws, the Executive Department enforced the laws, and the Supreme Court interpreted the laws. When did that change?
