Cyber security important for business

No business owner would leave their doors unlocked when closing, nor would they leave the money lying around without putting it in its proper place. Most businesses have a security system or cameras to help combat thievery and malice.
Security is important for any business, and with technology moving so fast, it is very important to have computers and virtual information protected as well. Without proper protection, there is a chance that the business owner could lose everything because of hackers and social engineers.

One of the better aspects of being in this line of work are all the fun, unique events we get to attend or at least know about a little more than the average person.
Set to take the plunge at around 3 p.m. Saturday are the Outhouse Races in Choudrant.

Artwork shows life before mechanization
091913 Hunter 2 C.jpg

One of Louisiana’s most famous artists died in 1988 at the age of 101, but her legacy lives on through her paintings.
Doug Gitter, an artist from Metairie, has spent the past four years working on reproducing some of Clementine Hunter’s artwork to make it affordable for everyday people.
Gitter said a desire to take artwork which was once very affordable and make it affordable again led him to create these hand-painted ceramics, based on the works of Hunter, so that others could enjoy a piece of American history.
