Concerns arise over school lunches

in

School Food Service Supervisor Doris Marzett believes every child in the Lincoln Parish School District should have the opportunity to eat for free, but unfortunately, if the district did enroll in such a program to provide free meals — the federally-ran Community Eligibility Provision — the Food Service department would shut down.
“The percentage is high enough to enroll, but not high enough to where it wouldn’t hurt us,” Marzett said.

The 26th annual Louisiana Chicken Festival Pageant saw the many faces of young girls Saturday morning as the young girl’s portion was held.
Taking home the title as People’s Choice was Laney Stevens, the 7-year-old daughter of Randy and Dustyn Williams, of Haynesville.
Pageant Director Danielle Harkins said this year’s pageant was very difficult.
“With all the two and three way ties it was very interesting to see who would win,” she said. “I look forward to seeing these girls at the Grower’s Banquet on the 23rd and again at the festival on the 27th.”

BOSSIER CITY — Sometimes a team’s best offense can be its defense.
That proved to be the case for Ruston High School Friday night as RHS used five interceptions, including a pick six by Jekevin Carter, to pull off a 12-7 win at Airline High School.
Ruston (1-1) struggled offensively for much of the night and trailed 7-0 at intermission following a three-yard touchdown run by Airline’s Shuncee Thomas that put the Vikings on top with 2:42 remaining in the second quarter.

JONESBORO — If only Cedar Creek could get one or two plays back from Friday’s game at Jonesboro-Hodge.
Nine turnovers proved too much to overcome Friday night as Cedar Creek fell 18-15 to the Tigers.
“We beat ourselves,” Cedar Creek coach Ben Haddox said. “Anytime you turn the ball over nine times and also lose another one when you snap the ball over the punter’s head, you’re putting yourselves in too much of a hole to get out of.”

Guys and gals and young’uns, that magic time of year has arrived with a flourish with the opening of dove season this past weekend.

He’s been chosen to the ultimate all-star team in his profession (Pro Bowl).
He’s signed a lucrative contract that should make future years bright for him and his family.
But for Tramon Williams, all of this pales in comparison to what is most important in his life.
Above everything else, the former Louisiana Tech University defensive back wants to be remembered for his strong belief in God and for what he means to wife Shan, son Tramon Jr., and daughter Trinity.
