Man points out debt, sees dark future

in

From China’s viewpoint, they see the most modern country in the world with endless resources. At some future time, China could insist that they be allowed to harvest the oil in the Rocky Mountains.

Author’s note: Ms. Ernestine Tatum passed away last week. Here’s a piece I wrote some time ago about her and her store in Dubach. May she rest in the arms of a loving Savior.
Her store is right where it’s always been — downtown Dubach between two pharmacies and just up the sidewalk from the old town hall where I accidentally set off the fire alarm.

Louisiana Tech basketball game
Some of our third, fourth and fifth grade students were invited to attend a Louisiana Tech Men’s Basketball game on Jan. 12.

We would like to thank Logan Lewis for organizing this event and also to Coach Derrick Jones for allowing us to participate in this event. Our girl’s team had the pleasure of taking pictures with the Lady Techsters.
