A couple of weeks ago, area television weathermen were facing the real likelihood of having to wipe egg off their collective faces when they predicted that north Louisiana was about to be encased in a winter wonderland.
We rushed to the store and emptied the shelves of bread, milk, water and batteries and made sure our generators were gassed up and ready to go when the snow and ice encapsulated us.

022814 Fishers of Men C.jpg

The North Central Louisiana Division of Fishers of Men kicked off the 2014 season with a frigid start on Feb. 8. As anglers gathered at Kel’s Cove on the shores of Lake Claiborne in Homer, the last flurries of snow from a winter front that pushed through the area in the days prior fell to the ground. With the front keeping air temperatures near freezing for most of the week and water temperatures in the low 40s, the field of 38 teams faced a daunting challenge for the eight hours of fishing that lay ahead.

What’s the first step in any weight loss or health plan? Examine those nutrition facts, found in that familiar rectangle on the side of food packages.
Having been overweight my entire life, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t seriously consider every morsel that went in my mouth. And, after I was diagnosed with diabetes and gluten intolerance, I don’t put anything near my mouth without considering what it contains.

Happy Shrove Tuesday.
I know what Tuesday is, but what does “shrove” mean? Most define this as “fat.” So, for those who are overweight, is this an annual day of celebration? Another definition: to impose penance or punishment on a sinner. That seems dour for a day of celebration. Shrove Tuesday is the translation for Mardi Gras.

Nutt, Tim.jpg

It is quite the challenge to attempt to understand our state’s complex new system of evaluating and rating schools. At times we as educators feel as though we are aiming for a moving target as the rating system appears to change almost daily.
