Approximately 1,400 Lincoln Parish utility customers were still without electricity this morning, as a result of unexpected straight-line winds that whipped across much of North Central Louisiana Thursday night.

Gusts of up to 70 mph caused downed trees and power lines. Limbs and other debris falling into the lines caused most of the outages, spokespeople for area electric utilities said.

“The high wind and lighting kind of did a number on us,” Roderick Worthy, customer service manager with Entergy, said this morning.

Sports have long been a part of Lincoln Parish history, and the staff at the Lincoln Parish Library wants to showcase it along side the “Hometown Teams” Smithsonian traveling exhibit.
To do so, Nick Davis, reference librarian for the library, has asked residents to loan the library items related to the sports history of the parish.
“Right now we have gotten quiet a few donations,” he said. “We have gotten some Tech memorabilia, a lot of Ruston High memorabilia as well as some Cedar Creek items.”

Bringing tourism to North Louisiana

Billy Nungesser said he knows what it’s like to be fighting for the underdog.

After riding out Hurricane Katrina in his Plaquemines Parish home, his demands for help for the sparsely populated South Louisiana parish went worldwide.

In 2010, when the Deepwater Horizon spilled oil on Plaquemines beaches and wrecked the economy, Nungesser, by then the parish president, lost no time in bluntly criticizing the cleanup efforts.

To hear him tell it then, in both catastrophic events, the big boys had been pointing fingers instead of solving problems.

Pride is not always a sin

Hawley, Heather.jpg

My brother is an American Airman.
He wakes up every morning, puts on his Airman Battle Uniform and goes to work.
Everyday he serves his country in the best way he knows how — as a member of its military.
Nick is three years older than me and has always been willing to stand up for what he felt was right. He has never struggled to do what needed to be done. That’s just who he is.
When he first told me he was joining the Air Force, my heart fell out of my chest.
