Pre-registration has been taking place this month. If you missed the school registration, please go to the Lincoln Parish School Board Office.

You can wait to plan, but time won’t accommodate you

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: My husband and I both work and stay very busy. We feel the need to do some financial planning, but it is easy to put it off. Also, times are so uncertain that we do not know if now is the best time to start. Do you have any thoughts on our situation?
Answer: Waiting is an illusion.
We “wait” because we do not want to make a decision. When we make a decision, we say yes to one thing and no to a thousand other alternatives. The thought that one of those alternatives might be “better” haunts us, so we fail to make a decision.
So we wait.

‘Sounds of Silence’ can work on gobblers

in
041314 Texas Turkeys C.jpg

It’s daybreak, A barred owl hoots and an old gobbler sounds off from the limb where he roosted last night. It’s time to start playing the “come hither” game with him.
I’ll sneak toward him as close as I dare, 100 yards or so, and quietly place a decoy 25 yards in front of the position I’ll take as I ease down to sit against a tree.
He’ll gobble again and I’ll take my calls from my turkey vest and lay them next to me — my box call, slate and the diaphragm call I’ll slip in my mouth.

Living the good, busy life in the new pad

Irby, Marna.jpg

Man, this is living!
Everything at your fingertips and lots of attention from family members and others. I even enjoy the therapists.
This was last Sunday’s routine: Up at 6 a.m. to get ready for church. After breakfast at 7 a.m. Jonathan dropped me at Wes and Mary Hilan’s for church with them at 8 a.m. After church I went with a couple of friends to Two Rows in Allen to eat some Cajun cooking. I had a dish that was new to me, but I think I can make it. It was basically crawfish and shrimp in an Alfredo sauce. With the spices added, it was really delicious.
