On this Sunday afternoon, I’m having a special date with my church granddaughter, Lori James. The reason it is so special is because she has never been to a ballet. I’m amazed since she has traveled the world with her husband, Bobby, and seen sights I will never see. Not long ago she was in Paris and brought me a small replica of the Eifel Tower.
Anyway, I’m excited to be the first one to see “The Nutcracker Suite” at the Eiseman Center with her. We have wonderful seats for the afternoon performance. I’ll go home with her from church and have lunch, then on to the show.
It’s time for Gov. Bobby Jindal to back off of 5th District Congressman Vance McAllister.
OK, so the GOP political newcomer wasn’t Jindal’s pick in last fall’s special election to fill former Rep. Rodney Alexander’s unexpired term. Barring something totally out of the blue, McAllister won’t be Jindal’s pick in this fall’s regular congressional election, either.
The annual Peach Festival has arrived. Well, the final preparations are being wrapped up and the kick-off festivities are only a few days away, but for the most part, the Peach Festival is here and making its annual appearance within the Lincoln Parish community.
Everyone is excited about the arrival of warmer weather. While most gardeners are busy preparing the garden areas, many are already planting their favorite ornamental and vegetable plants.
Searching nurseries for new varieties and old favorites is an exciting event which takes place every spring season. To enhance the usual plant selections found in local nurseries, Master Gardeners from Northeast Louisiana and North Central Louisiana have scheduled plant sales, which should tantalize the enthusiastic plant buyer.
