Crews are working on Legacy Park, which will be housed in Lincoln Parish Park, so the parish will have a place where all children could come together and play. It will feature a few aspects that will set it apart from other playgrounds, such as playground equipment that will sit higher off the ground so that children in wheelchairs will be able to roll underneath and play with their friends.
The park will also have equipment to help other special needs children such as high-back swings, so children will have added support if needed.

Readying yard for winter, avoiding ants

Maki, Ken.jpg

During the last week I was out at a deer camp and noticed a field of oak trees that had been planted to some special trees that they had gotten from the Department of Forestry.
I asked what kind were they and they couldn’t remember. Well I have some that I got also from the forestry department, and I can’t remember either. They are a very fast tall-growing tree. Mine are about 10 years old and border my yard. They are about 10 to 12 inches in diameter and a good 40 feet tall.

Bulldogs, Aggies have had similar results this season
100911 Isham c.jpg

Pardon Head Coach Sonny Dykes and the Louisiana Tech University staff for maybe employing some mirrors during this week’s practice sessions.
There would be a good reason for it.
Utah State is practically a mirror image of the Bulldogs this season.
“They are remarkably similar to us,” said Dykes during his weekly media luncheon Monday. “They’ve lost some really close games. Like we have, they’ve just come up short in several of them.”
Tech has lost three games by single digits. Utah State has dropped four by single digits.
