2015 is here, which means we begin a whole new year filled with memories.
What an interesting year 2014 was. It was filled with wonderful stories around the world, such as a mass ALS awareness campaign known as the “Ice Bucket Challenge”, new relations with Cuba and the World Cup, which the U.S. joined the rest of the world in watching.
It was also a year of tragedy. The fear of Ebola rose, the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 disappeared and we saw a new terrorist threat called the militant Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, better know as ISIS, rose to power.
“Good things come to those who wait,” the saying goes. It looks like the Union-Lincoln Regional Water Supply Initiative is going to have to wait a little longer.
The ULRWSI is the bi-parish organization that wants to pipe water from Lake D’Arbonne to Ruston and Farmerville as an alternative source to the beleaguered Sparta Aquifer. One of the first steps in what will be an expensive, elongated project is securing a site for a water treatment plant.
