Spread love of reading this holiday season

This year during the holiday season, the Lincoln Parish Library is working to keep kids’ love of reading alive while they’re on school break.
The library has long hosted various summer reading programs that encourage children, teens and adults to crack open a book, and for the past couple of years they have also been encouraging children to read outside of the classroom during the school year with a reading program that typically starts in January.

Don't accept crimes against humanity

in

I want to say how concerned I am about the views expressed by Rich Lowry in a recent article. There are so many half-truths and omissions in this piece, it is as laughable as hearing Dick Cheney spewing his outright fascist-style propaganda from any and all FoxNews platforms.

Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

I recently read a Facebook post that brought serious insight.
It stated, “Just a reminder to all you parents out there to be modest with your gifts from Santa. Not all parents have ton of cash to spend on making their kids’ Christmas special, so it doesn’t make sense to have Santa give your kid a PlayStation 4, a bike and an iPad, while his best friend at school gets a new hat and mittens from Santa. You know? Give something small from Santa and make the more expensive presents from you.

Dedication, preparation and a smile across the face all go into their performances, but Esther Lazarus, a member since 2009, said everyone in the group is getting a little anxious about this particular show.
“We’re all a little nervous,” she said. “We’re working very hard to get everything ready.”

Local children involved in the Boys and Girls Clubs of North Central Louisiana will be given the opportunity to express themselves at 6 p.m. tonight at Trinity United Methodist Church.
Sabrina Love, unit director, said the event Coffee and Carols has been going on since the beginning of time.
