Voting for what’s best for our area

The way the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry sees it, the Lincoln Parish legislative delegation failed to make the grade during the recent lawmaking session. We disagree.
What put Rep. Patrick Jefferson, D-Homer; Sen. Rick Gallot, D-Ruston; Sen. Bob Kostelka, R-Monroe; Rep. Rob Shadoin, R-Ruston; Sen. Mike Walsworth, R-West Monroe; and their colleagues most at odds with LABI were the policymakers’ favorable votes on measures that repealed or suspended several business tax incentives.

Sheriff recognized for service

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

There are 64. Then there was one.
Lincoln Parish and the surrounding region have a great deal for which to be proud and thankful. We have outstanding people, businesses, universities, quality of life, unparalleled library facilities, relatively low unemployment, meaningful church community and a community of persons who work with one another. No one place is the location of utopia, but we have a great deal going for us here. We should continue to work for and with our blessings and opportunities.

Well thought out plan needed for guns

Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

I grew up in the country. It’s not a secret.
My parent’s home is 18 miles — yes that is correct — 18 miles from town. And even farther from the grocery store, let alone Wal-Mart.
For years I looked forward to the opening weekend of squirrel season, because that meant I got to spend some quality time with my papaw.
I have been deer hunting. I have been duck hunting. Do I do any of those things today?
No.
But that does not mean that I don’t hold onto those memories with fondness or that I don’t want my boys around guns.

Despite wanderings life is full of fun

Irby, Marna.jpg

This has been one weird week. Until shortly after I wrote last week’s column — the next day in fact — I’ve been in the hospital once again. Sounds like a professional hypochondriac, right? The aides and nurses all know me well now.
What’s odd, it seems I have developed Menier’s disease, commonly known as vertigo.

Inner life with God becomes quiet, calm

Brewton, Cathy 12-13.jpg

During the month of July, I was surrounded by lots of quiet. LifeHouse did not have much daily activity beyond our weekly scheduled classes. My afternoons and evenings with my family were somewhat quiet and relaxing, and my inner life with God became one that was very quiet and calm.
