Recently, I’ve spent some of my free time reading a book about Jane Austen being turned into a vampire and fighting against a French invasion. It was quite silly, but also quite amusing.
Though I enjoy both Jane Austen and vampire novels, it likely would have taken me a lot longer to pick up such a book if it weren’t for the Lincoln Parish Library’s Fifth Annual Adult Summer Reading Program.
I have participated in the Adult Summer Reading program in Lincoln Parish every year that it’s been around. Before that, as a child and a teen I participated in a similar event back home in Rapides Parish.
Question: I am a high school student with really good grades. I know I’m going to go to college, I just don’t know where yet. Is it worth it to go to an expensive private school? I’m pretty sure my parents couldn’t pay for it, so I will have to get student loans.
Endometriosis is one of the top three causes of female infertility. And while it’s one of the most treatable causes, it remains the least treated. For the approximately 6.3 million women and girls in the United States who suffer from endometriosis, according to the Endometriosis Foundation of America, many suffer silently because they believe the pain — especially pain during sexual intercourse — is too personal to discuss with their doctor.
Norway suffered from a nationwide butter shortage last month. Meanwhile in America, as Stephen Colbert put it, we have so many types of butter “that we have produced a product called I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, because if you pick up any random object in the United States, there’s a good chance it’s butter.”
Paula Deen has been the butt of butter jokes since her rise to fame on the Food Network in 2002. It doesn’t help that she has a recipe for fried butter balls that includes two sticks of butter and two ounces of cream cheese. This recipe is just one of dozens known for their high grease, sugar or fat content.
