Learn about fire prevention

We’ve all heard the slogan “Only you can prevent forest fires” made famous by Smokey Bear. But, the same is for any other kind of fire — only we can prevent them.
Today-Saturday marks Fire Prevention Week for Louisiana, and the Louisiana State Fire Marshal wants us to be reminded to prevent kitchen fires.
“Often when our firefighters are called to a fire that started in the kitchen, the residents tell them that they only left the kitchen for a few minutes,” said Butch Browning, state fire marshal. “Sadly, that’s all it takes for a dangerous fire to start.”

Time to hear from Muslim majority

in

The atrocities being perpetrated regularly around the globe in the name of the Prophet Mohammed are chilling. It is no longer considered an unusual event to hear — as we have all recently experienced — of the Islamic terror attack in a Kenyan shopping mall and the Islamic massacre of 81 worshipping Christians in Pakistan, with the battle cry that “the Christian minority is a threat to Islam.”

COLUMBIA — The Cougars of Cedar Creek (3-2) failed to pull a final non-conference regular-season victory against the Caldwell Parish Spartans (5-0) Friday night.
On a hot and humid day night, the Spartans defeated the Cougars 44-28.
Even after a second half push, Cedar Creek head coach Ben Haddox said the Spartans played harder earlier in the game, and it was too little too late for his Cougars in the end.
“I tip my hat off to (Caldwell),” he said. “They played tremendously. They were in position to make plays, and they had incredible athletes.”

Chandler family leaves mark in parish

Ed Chandler, Sr. had to have struggled with mixed emotions seven decades or so ago. While he was surely proud that his three sons, Waylon, Lavon and Ed Jr. were overseas fighting for our freedom, having three sons in harm’s way at the same time had to have been responsible for many sleepless nights.
All three returned safely after the end of World War II, married and settled down east of Ruston. Until recently, Ed Jr. and Lavon continued to live in the same area while older brother, Waylon makes his home near Farmerville.

Reforms needed for future of Social Security

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: I am in my early 50s. I can hardly believe that retirement is only ten years away. It seems very likely that I will have to take Social Security early to make ends meet. Will it be there for me when I need it?
Answer: Social Security will be there for you, but not in unlimited quantities.
