Celebrating a community of great women

For the past several weeks we have read about the remarkable women in our community.
Some are career women. Some are artists. Some were mothers. Some are even your local handy-women.
But what they all have in common is the ability to inspire our young women to reach their full potential. Being a woman does not mean that you must be a mother or a career women. As we read through their life stories it was easy to see that many, if not all made the decision to do both, and for that they should be commended.

Preparing for the prize, glory

Cox-Boniol,  Cathi.jpg

Someone recently asked about the first time I saw Elvis, and I gladly waded into the events of that spectacular March afternoon in 1975.
We had great seats in the Monroe Civic Center mezzanine. Though a fair distance from the stage, I knew that I would be able to get a pretty clear look at Elvis. However, when the lights went down for Elvis to take the stage, something came over me.

Significance of Easter revealed

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Easter season is fun. It is sacred. There are four weeks left. Families, traditional and universal, celebrate. We have Easter egg hunts, eat chocolate (at least I do) and dress well for church. We might explain the bunny. Easter is celebrated by the Christian family.
Today and the next three weeks, I write of the significance of Easter, both from a spiritual and historical standpoint.
I say now and will repeat later: Easter is the most significant time in history. This might sound bold; I will share more on Easter.

Investing in more than just dollars

DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

I’ve mentioned before that I come from a very blue collar, paycheck-to-paycheck sort of family. So does my husband.
So, when my husband and I (my fiance at the time) started looking at the sort of financial goals we wanted to focus on as we merged our lives, avoiding that paycheck-to-paycheck lifestyle was our biggest one.
Unfortunately, a recent study reveals that in today’s economic climate, we’re just as likely as our parents to get stuck in that sort of pattern.

Thanks for ball success

in

It takes a “team,” and I would like to thank the team who contributed to making the Krewe of Allegro Mardi Gras Ball such a success. NCLAC, Ruston Community Theater, Ruston Civic Symphony Society, Troupe Dixie and Dixie Center for the Arts all came together to make it the best Mardi Gras Ball ever.
Becky and Lue Charles Napper and the Ruston Civic Symphony Society started it all many years ago and graciously turned it over to the team this year. The net proceeds will go to a sustaining contingency fund for the repair and maintenance of the Dixie Theater, utilized by all of the groups.

Proud of protecting tradition

in

I applaud Lincoln Parish Library Board member Dr. Augusta Clark for her brave (and lone) vote regarding the use of the Events Center at the library. Because Lincoln Parish is fortunate to have a library that has in the past always been a great source of pride, I was happy to see Dr. Clark’s stand toward protecting its proud tradition.
