Festival treat to fill freezers

The problems with the national economy and the impending budget cuts at Louisiana Tech won’t affect production of the peach ice cream, he said.
The ice cream flavor is only available during the Peach Festival.
Tech’s budget cuts, however, might affect production of the other ice cream flavors. Those other flavors are available year round, Reger said.
“The economy is affecting us in at least one way, because we are going to have to cut down on the number of cows we use to produce the milk to make our ice cream,” he said.

Use Summer to enhance reading skills

That’s the type of reading the Lincoln Parish Library’s summer reading program emphasizes.

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 Creative at Your Library.”

Final bell sounds

“I’m going to get up out of my chair, run to the car line outside and look for my father, who should be somewhere out there,” Robert said.
Robert has big plans for the summer — he and his father might travel to Honduras.
Eva Simpkins, 10, a fourth-grader, will visit a two-week summer camp in Arkansas. Despite her excitement, Eva said she is at least a little nervous about what the future may bring once the summer break ends.
