Celebrating Memorial Day with the neighborhood

Irby, Marna.jpg

It’s been a busy week, and I woke up this morning feeling great and ready to meet the day. It was a wonderful feeling.
I have to tell you about my Memorial Day celebration. It took place at the home of one of Susan and Jonathan’s neighbors. Before I tell you about our big party, I have to tell you about their street. In their block there are people of all ages. In all my days, I’ve never seen anything like it, even in my beloved Ruston.

Grambling residents are preparing to celebrate freedom at the annual Juneteenth Heritage Festival, an eight-day event that will kick off at 6 p.m. June 12 with opening ceremonies.
Although Juneteenth began as a way to celebrate the abolition of slavery in the United Sates, entertainment coordinator for the festival Anthony Moore said it is not exclusive to one particular race.

Commission tests new flood gates

in

Residents in low-lying areas around Lake D’Arbonne learned the hard way in April the state’s new $9 million flood control project wasn’t keeping water off their property.
The chairman of the commission that oversees the lake asked them for patience as his group and state agencies learn how to use the structure.
In April, when heavy rains over a week-long period pushed the level of the lake to the predetermined level at which the two 20-foot Tainter gates would be opened, the continued rise on the lake saw it spill onto lots and over piers and other structures on the lake.

Testing: Tough row to hoe

Lincoln Parish’s students test scores may have dropped this year, but that doesn’t mean their self- esteem has to drop too.
Although our eighth grade students had the same average scoring results on the LEAP test as they did last year, pressure felt by the younger fourth grade class made for an ill-adjusted testing result which brought the entire parish down by 3 percent — from a 70 to a 67 percent average in Basic proficiency.
It’s not as bad as it sounds. Each student is placed into one of the following categories: Unsatisfactory, Approaching Basic, Basic, Mastery and Advanced.
