Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

After posting a few photos from the recent Waste Isolation Pilot Project Training and Exercise to Facebook, it dawned on me that many people were unaware of what was actually going on.
Many people were in awe that something such as the prepared scenario happened, even though it really didn’t. The purpose behind WIPPTREX is to prepare emergency responders across the board for something we hope never happens.

All Americans should vote

in

The United States of America. Vote! Americans vote! Young and old Americans vote! Professionals and students vote!
Can you figure what I find important about being an American. It is the one thing that by being an American, we can actually make a difference by employing rights bestowed us in our Constitution.
The importance of this tenet, the actual use of endowed rights, cannot be overstated. Not only can we change the people that “represent” us (hopefully), we can change how our Constitution, our living document, grows and thus can alter everyday life for every American.

Crossroads in Simsboro dangerous

in

Please let the public know the crossroads of Louisiana Highway 544 and Louisiana Highway 563 in Simsboro can be very dangerous.
I have lived in Simsboro my whole life. I always cringe as I go through this crossroads. I have seen countless people run the stop sign on Highway 563.
Why can we not get the parish to put down rumble strips, reflectors on the road, a flashing light or anything to help stop this problem?

One man’s trash is another man’s...

Rogers, Randy.jpg

Looking back, I can’t remember who drove the green dump truck or what day it came by, but we were always watching out for it and the brown paper bag of Super Bubble he kept in a paper sack on the seat. If you caught him in time, he’d hand a piece down to you. What a sight it must have been to see a half dozen neighborhood kids chasing a trash truck.
Even when he was out of gum, it was fun just to watch his team of giants work. One would hop off and grab a barrel and hoist it up to the other so he could dump the trash into the bed of the dump truck.

For the fifth year in a row local beer connoisseurs will have the chance to support the arts and taste a variety of locally brewed beverages in a new location.
Jessica Slaughter, NCLAC executive director, said ARToberfest is a beer-tasting fundraiser.
“We bring together regional home brewers, commercial beers and great music for a night of good company with a good purpose,” she said. “The last few years the event has grown and sold out our venue, so this year we’ve moved to the Norton Building, where we’ll be able to have more guests.”

Audiologists begin state board

in
Madix, Frasier.jpg

Until recently, Louisiana was one of the few states without a statewide audiology association, which is something local audiologists felt needed to change.
Steven Madix, assistant professor in the Louisiana Tech University Department of Speech, and Jerrilyn Frasier, speech-language pathologist and audiologist for the Department of Otolaryngology at Green Clinic, were two of the founders of the Louisiana Academy of Audiology and currently serve as president and vice president of governmental issues, respectively.
