The Louisiana Department of Education announced Friday that it was cutting New Living Word School from the voucher program based on findings of an outside auditor.

Dan Reneau closes out career as Tech president
3-0.jpg

They key was cut at the Louisiana Tech campus locksmith shop in 1987. Off-center and a bit crooked, “1620” is engraved into its back.
That number is the same as the number above the office door that leads to the Louisiana Tech president’s suite on the 16th floor of Wyly Tower. This is the key that opens the most exclusive door on campus, into an office where the buck stops every day.
It looks like several others of the 20 or so keys on the simple round chain, one Dan Reneau can’t remember getting.

A good gardener knows a little ingenuity and an understanding of Mother Nature can go a long way toward successful harvests.
And a lifetime’s worth of experience doesn’t hurt, either.
Lincoln Parish’s John Livingston is proof of all that, as he’s already harvested plenty of yellow squash, zucchini, okra, beets and radishes. But the bulk of his harvest is still weeks away.
“I’m just getting started,” Livingston said. “The beets and radishes are early season plants and we’ve eaten all of those. But we’re just getting started on harvesting the other stuff. I’ve put up seven gallon-size bags of sliced yellow squash, two gallon-size bags of yellow squash and zucchini mixed together, and three quarts of sliced zucchini. That’s not to mention the probably 50 pounds or more of what we’ve cooked that we’ve given away.”

NATCHITOCHES — Jay Dardenne had a good reason to feel like “the little kid in the candy store” on Friday night.
The dream that the Louisiana Lt. Governor and the state’s passionate sports fans have had for so long opened for business: the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Museum, covering an estimated 28,000 square feet along Front Street in historic downtown Natchitoches.

Stay safe while having a ‘blast’

This week, if you hear a loud bang, it’s likely that a sparkly display will quickly follow.
As we celebrate the Fourth of July, many individuals — and some organizations — will host fireworks shows.
Since rain has been plentiful this year, there is no burn ban looming making fireworks extra hazardous. Therefore, the Lincoln Parish Fire Department has no problem with families celebrating with a bombastic display of patriotism, as long as they do not live in one of the municipalities where fireworks are forbidden.
