The power of remembrance is a gift

in
3-1.jpg

Tomorrow, our nation will celebrate Memorial Day as we take time to remember those who have literally given their lives to serve our nation. Men and women, fathers and mothers, sons and daughters who signed up, served and sacrificed. The idea of memorializing those who have died is an ancient tradition, for there is great power in “remembrance.” It helps us to stay connected to our past, to be grateful for our blessings and to hope that we, too, might leave a legacy of noble character to our children. It is also an idea that is found throughout Scripture.

Sparta fracking

D’Arbonne commission questions contract wisdom

Southwestern Energy’s decision to enter into a contract to use water from the Sparta Aquifer to frack its wells has stirred controversy.
D’Arbonne Lake Watershed Commission president Steve Cagle said he is dumbfounded as to why Southwestern did not finalize a contract with the lake commission to use water from Lake D’Arbonne, which is a renewable and plentiful resource.
“I just can’t believe it,” Cagle said. “Sparta is already short of water, yet they’re going to sell it to Southwestern? It doesn’t make sense.”

Storm sirens help save lives

It could happen here.
The kind of tornado that devastated Moore, Okla., is unlikely to happen here because we’re a little off the beaten path of Tornado Alley, the section of the U.S. where the strongest tornadoes like that Category F4 twister hit.
But our area has seen destructive tornadoes before, and we will again.
And fortunately, like the residents in Moore, we should be able to get some advance notice if such a storm is on its way.
