Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

As Father’s Day approaches, we see images of fathers and children everywhere.
Television commercials show young dads holding tiny babies or playing with sturdy toddlers, older fathers reaching out to aloof adolescents, grandfathers teaching simple life lessons to their children’s children. My heart always squeezes up a little at these scenes, as do many of yours.
For most of us, our fathers have tremendous influence over us. They hold the power to inspire and encourage us. We want their interest and their involvement. We want them to be proud of us. We want their blessing.

Honor local hero as France did on Friday

Lamore Carter has had a career that many people would envy.
In 1992, after decades of service to Grambling State University, he retired as the school’s provost and vice president of academic affairs. For three years after that, from 1993 to 1996, Carter was president of Wiley College in Marshall, Texas.
