Jury encouraged to rethink options
In a frail economy, I congratulate the Lincoln Parish Police Jury for abandoning their previous long standing practice of leaning on business people to make contributions for their Christmas celebration.
Just last Wednesday, the Junior Auxiliary announced that their list of children needing “Christmas” had doubled. Christian Community Action is always ready to receive canned goods and is offering vouchers for a Thanksgiving meal to those who find themselves in dire straits. These two examples of need represent only the tip of the iceberg in our area.
