Center creates donation page

in

The recently flooded Television Center at Grambling State University in Woodson Hall has a GoFundMe funding page to reconstruct the center.
The website’s address is http://www.gofundme.com/v34vc8s.
Director of GSU’s Television Center Alan Blakeney said the proceeds go to the university’s account at the cashier’s office.
“The university will decide what the funds will be used for at the center,” he said.
Blakeney said Woodson Hall took seven inches of water during a storm on May 18 that damaged hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment.

That’s the way Kip Franklin, director of the Lincoln Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, described an emergency responder communications drill that involved checking radio frequencies.
Representatives from local fire and police departments, as well as Louisiana State Police, the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness and regional emergency personnel spent several hours testing their radio communication skills.

Lightning strikes championship

Lighting strikes fast.
So can the Northern Louisiana Lightning, Lincoln Parish’s semi-pro football team.

The team will play against the Dallas Bulldogs Saturday in Dallas.
The Bulldogs will try and win their fifth consecutive championship.
Lincoln Parish, home to the Louisiana Tech University Bulldogs, Grambling State University Tigers and several high school football teams, did not have a professional or semi-professional team — until now.

Autism center thanks community

in

It was such a beautiful sight. On April 25, more than 500 participants from near and far came together in support of those whose lives have been touched by Autism. On behalf of the Hope Center for Autism’s Board of Directors, I would like to send a sincere thank you to everyone who came out and took part in our third annual Hope for Autism 5k & Family Fun Day in Lincoln Parish Park during Autism Awareness Month.

Water is key for summer hydration

Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

This past week I was informed that I was a “health nut.”
I was taken aback by the statement, because while I do like to workout and eat healthier foods — I don’t consider myself a health nut.
I am by no means obsessed with my health. I eat what I want, when I want even if it is the whole pint of ice cream in one sitting.
One pint of ice cream will not make you unhealthy, just like one salad will not make you healthy.
I have learned that it is the little things day in and day out that make the difference.

Movie hits middle of the road in rating

Garver, Robert.jpg

“Tomorrowland” is an uneven film. It gets off on the wrong foot, builds promisingly, has a terrific middle, but then stumbles and meanders its way toward an underwhelming conclusion. Let’s get the worst scene out of the way first. At the 1964 World’s Fair, young Frank (Thomas Robinson) presents a homemade jetpack to the judge of an invention contest (Hugh Laurie). The judge asks him what purpose of the jetpack serves. Frank responds, “Why can’t it just be fun?” The line is supposed to paint Frank as a wise, whimsical dreamer.

Too old for such problems

Irby, Marna.jpg

Well, there goes May. How fast ti,e flies. I always heard it seem to go much faster when you’re old — I know now, it is true.
I have never ever seen weather quite like this. I saw a funny picture in the paper of a church sign, which read, “If you’re still praying for rain, please stop.” My sentiments exactly.
I had an interesting experience this week. Think I told you about this character who lives here, who said she was raised as a Baptist preacher’s daughter, who along with a Jewish friend decided to study the Bible for themselves and decided it could not be factually true.
