The United Nations warns us that the world’s population is about to surpass 7 billion people. Many fear this is the result of ‘population explosion,’ described as a condition where an organism’s numbers exceed the carrying capacity of its habitat.” Experts opine that, “Humans are 10,000 more common than they should be according to the rules of the animal kingdom, and we have agriculture to thank for that.”

Man questions future of America

in

During the 1800s, Russia had an upper class and peasants. For the upper class, life was at its best for those times. It never entered their minds that the good life as they knew it would end. They exercised no concern for the masses that did all the work. The peasant workers lived a miserable life in comparison with no hope or means to improve their status. Resentment grew and grew by the workers, which culminated into a massive revolt against the upper class. In October of 1917, the military and the peasants took control of the largest country in the world.

Hotel talks show progress

In recent months, the Town of Grambling has done numerous things to work at bringing economic development to the area, and although things may be moving a little slower than town officials would like, things are looking up for Grambling and its residents.
The town is currently working on two separate spots, each for a different hotel — one would sit on approximately 9.28 acres of land across from Church’s Chicken on R.W.E. Jones Drive with the other behind the Bingo Hall at the old building that was previously used as a hotel in the 1970s right off of Interstate 20 exit 81.

March 2nd

Quiz Bowl offers up learning experience

There was plenty of adrenaline, last minute preparations and words of encouragement right before students took the stage Feb. 25 in the Mobile Learning Theater-sponsored African-American History Quiz Bowl.
Students in the Lincoln Parish School System came out to compete in the quiz bowl at the Lincoln Parish Library Events Center to test their expertise of important facts and dates in honor of Black History Month.
“I was ecstatic with how the quiz bowl turned out,” said Latoya Jones, sponsor of the Mobile Learning Theater. “I was not expecting the turnout we had, and didn’t expect it to be a live-wire event from the beginning to end.”

Fun makes time fly

Irby, Marna.jpg

Can it be true? Is it really March already? Man, how time flies when you’re having fun!
I’ve had some extraordinary times since last week.
Possibly the most exciting is the weekend women’s retreat, which was held at our church this past weekend. I was sorry daughter Becky didn’t get over here in time to go with me, but she has promised to go with me next year.
It was a new experience in that it was held at our church rather than at Lake Lavonencampment.

A local man is set to perform in Nashville this weekend.
Richard Hood, a Ruston native, has performed Chet Atkins style guitar for more than a decade.
He was asked by the Country Music Hall of Fame to come to Nashville, perform His show and present a PowerPoint presentation he has created on Chet Atkins to accompany their eight month Chet Atkins exhibit.
“Ever since 1991, I have gone to a Chet Atkins guitar convention in July,” he said “After going for a couple years, I was introduced to Buster and Lorena DeVault who were friends who were friends from Chet’s boyhood. They invited me to their home and showed me his old home.”
