Saints’ season still outstanding

Yes it was painful for Louisiana football fans. Shocking. Breathtaking. Heartbreaking.
But remember it was only a game.
A big part of the Who Dat Nation resides in the piney hills of Lincoln Parish, and we all stunned Sunday night as we watched the New Orleans suffer a shattering last-second loss to the Minnesota Vikings in NFL divisional playoff action.
But you can’t win them all, and that shouldn’t take away from the fact that the Saints turned in a remarkable and unexpectedly strong season, with a spectacular rookie class playing a big role in the team’s success.

All the answers about lawn burweed or sticker weed

in
Stockton, Gary NEW.jpg

Every summer I receive more phone calls about lawn burweed or sticker weed than any other lawn problem that we have. During the summer is when the stickers show up. The stickers are the seeds that the plant produces to get next year’s crop in the ground and ready to come up. The biggest problem with controlling lawn burweed is that once we notice the stickers it is really too late to do anything about them.

in
Randy 2018 2018.jpg

I’m not sure when all this gap business started — under what White House administration — that is. I was in the cradle with Eisenhower was in office and age 4 when John F. Kennedy was sworn in as youngest, most stylish, most articulate and handsome president. His inauguration speech caused thousands of young people to begin work for voting rights, civil rights, fair housing, and in the Peace Corps, and other things that we Americans were challenged to do for our country. Young people felt empowered and encouraged to make a difference.

Celebrating a dream

Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream was simple.
King dreamt that we could live in a nation where citizens were judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
He dreamt that one day his four children could walk hand-in-hand with children of all colors and backgrounds.
He dreamt that we could live in a world where love defeated fear and we all could love one another equally.
Since the Civil Rights movement, this nation has made many strides to becoming what King envisioned.
