Honor those who have made the sacrifice

With Memorial Day only hours away, many residents in Lincoln Parish have done their part to ensure the day is a special one for veterans and their families.
On Friday evening, the Grambling American Legion Post 593 placed flags on the graves of veterans buried in Grambling Memorial Gardens and then followed up with visits to several more cemeteries including New Rocky Valley Baptist Church, Harmony Baptist Church and Fellowship Baptist Church cemeteries.
A recognition service to honor veterans will also be held today at 5 p.m. at Grambling Memorial Gardens.

How can war be forgotten? The thought is horrific.
War is sometimes necessary. Sometimes  results can be futile if there is no “winner” as such. Wars have been fought over very important issues; sometimes the issues were not as important, at least in retrospect.
Tomorrow is Memorial Day. This is a day set aside to remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives.

Bookworms, let the summer reading begin

DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

As an adult, summer doesn’t quite have the same appeal as it did when I was a kid. Back then, summer meant long, lazy days to enjoy in the pool, watching my favorite shows or, more likely, buried in a pile of books set to take me off to wondrous, exciting locales.

GWL and Tech pass on reading bug
RES.jpg

With the help of Goodwill Lunching and Louisiana Tech University Kinesiology, Ruston Elementary School was recently home to the first Lincoln Parish “Service Station.” As the RES students rotated through different activity stations during Field Day, one station was devoted to community service and the students worked collaboratively to put together special bags for each pre-k student in the parish. As they learned about giving back, the “assembly line” allowed each RES student to fill three bags with books, pencils, bookmarks and with a personally written or illustrated note to encourage the y
