In July 2013, after some difficult times, the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office took over the management of the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
The detention center began 34 years ago, and had not been repaired since then until the sheriff’s office took over. It wasn’t until the State Fire Marshal told management that if they did not do something, the Fire Marshal was closing the doors to the center.
Once the sheriff’s office took over the detention center, things began to move, and a $1.7 million deficit accumulated at the end of 2013.

Remember poor, hungry within state

The recent Murray-Ryan budget deal is less than I hoped for, but better than the status quo. It does nothing to address runaway Pentagon spending or close a single wasteful tax loophole. However, the deal does provide an invaluable opportunity for Congress to stop budgeting by crisis and resume a normal budget process.

A close shave and a Christmas miracle

Asher, Jemery.jpg

It happened around this time last year. Until the day it happened, I had never experienced anything quite like it. It was something that would happen in a movie, right before the end credits roll. What I experienced that day is what we in my family call “a Christmas miracle.” Here is my story.

Time spent through the years in Ruston remembered

in
Irby, Marna.jpg

It seems forever to me since I was in Ruston last, but hopefully I will be there this Sunday worshipping at Temple Church with so many of you I have known for so long. And, I am excited to think I will be there for the new pastor’s first sermon with the church.
I remember so well when my dad preached his first sermon there as pastor, and it has been an amazing journey over the years to always know wherever I was I could always go home to Temple.
