Police jury to vote on budget

in
Public hearing set for 7 p.m.

The Lincoln Parish Police Jury will likely vote Tuesday on its 2018 proposed budget that is projected to end its financial year with a general fund balance of $2.9 million.
The board will discuss the budget, along with several other items, during the jury’s regular meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Lincoln Parish Courthouse.
The only change the jury’s finance committee made was the approval to forgive the Exhibition Center’s $8,500 debt used toward various stables located at the center. That decision came during the jury’s meeting in November.

Bernard, Donna.jpg

To show you what Christmas is looking like at the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team office, I will take a picture and share it with you on Facebook in the next several days.
Until then, let me assure you that the generosity of Ruston will enjoyed by the DART children on Christmas morning.
There are baby dolls, Barbie Dolls, basketballs and bikes all over my office.
Each Christmas season, DART staff visit with the children who are currently involved in our programs and obtain a wish list of items they would like to see under their tree.

More than a year and a half after its inception, the Grambling Historic Preservation committee submitted its report on the history of the city of Grambling to the state.
As a result, state officials, who reviewed the overall report, now recognize the city as a certified local government.
That has some perks. City officials can now apply for grants dedicated to the historic preservation.

Afternoon shadows and twilight amblings

Hollis,Sallie 2017.jpg

During a performance by my chorus last Sunday night, one of my singing sisters experienced a strange phenomenon. And, no, I’m not talking about the woman on the back row who got faint and had to sit down on the floor while we were singing. (You know, the show must go on.)

Former Bulldog Trent Taylor is one tough NFL rookie

in
121017 Trent Taylor C.jpg

Trent Taylor is an enigma in the NFL.
He’s 5-8 and 175 pounds and that’s probably only on days when Muscle Milk is consumed in record amounts.
