Brewton, Cathy 12-13.jpg

I read the other day in my Yoga Journal magazine that anxiety is the “new disease” of our culture — the plague of our time.
The article I was reading was written by a yoga master teacher, who has spent his long healthy life studying people, practicing and teaching yoga, as well as speaking to people about the healthy effects of yoga.

The Lincoln Parish School District has been keeping track of the dollars provided for them during the 2013 tax millage through various projects in the parish.
Several renovations have been underway throughout the year and a few major projects are nearing completion.
A new turf, lighting concession stands, bathroom facilities and a ticket booth were added to the Ruston High School L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium.

“From a security and safety standpoint, I would like for the skate park to be located in close proximity to Lambright Sports and Wellness Center, “Dowling said. “It would require less staff to manage and keep safe if it is located here.”
The idea was first presented by the BMX/ Skateboarding Club on campus to club member Joshua Dean.

The Fourth of July is a day that is now celebrated with parades, fireworks, barbecues and days off from work, but more than ever it upholds the traditions that were set forth by our forefathers.

The Fourth of July is here and that means good food and sparklers for both the young and old. But before the good times get underway taking safety precautions is always a must. And for some people, that will have to start extra early.

Former President Bill Clinton said “There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America.”
