Health Unit needs support

The Lincoln Parish Health Unit serves a myriad of purposes when it comes to keeping residents healthy, especially when it comes to the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. But, although the Lincoln Health Foundation is doing everything they can to keep the health unit afloat, it has been struggling for the past several months due to a 66 percent cut to its staff by the state.

Take 2nd ammendment personally

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

The attack on the Second Amendment has come home to me personally. It is not that this was totally unexpected, but as they say on one pre-game football program, “C’mon Man!”
I wrote my column a couple of weeks ago. My skin is thick enough to take some criticism, but some of what I received was--shall we say— overly dramatic. I firmly believe in freedom of speech and expression, and the opinions of some opposed to my view are allowed in our country. I just disagree.

Rebounding essential to reach goals

Cox-Boniol,  Cathi.jpg

Have you ever seen the television show “NUMB3RS” that ran from 2005-10? It’s still on periodically and is one of my go-to shows when I’m up in the middle of the night. In it, a brilliant mathematician uses complex equations to flush out criminals for the Los Angeles office of the FBI. It’s definitely a brilliant spin on the power of numbers.

Book banning inhibits creativity

DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

Several years ago, at our first meeting, the (now ex-) girlfriend of one of my brother-in-law’s gave me a book. We had talked a few times before meeting, and she knew I’d like it — and she was right.
After the Harry Potter series was completed, “The Hunger Games” was the first book I couldn’t put down. As Harry Potter did, the book went on to become a very profitable franchise. Also, as Harry Potter did, it eventually made it onto a list I view every September. For the first time, in 2013, “The Hunger Games” made it onto the Top 10 Most Challenged Books List.

Missing life in Ruston and Lincoln Parish

Irby, Marna.jpg

What a day I had today. Makes me tired to think about it, but happy too.
Becky and Harold from Ruston have been here with us for a few days and are going home today. Remember, I’m writing this before Sunday, so they’ll be home long before you read this. We’ve had a wonderful time together and I hate to see them leave, but with their attachment to little Sydney, they should be back soon.
