Family.
When asked to describe Pecan Villa, that is the one of the first words used by residents.
The apartment complex, created for housing seniors age 62 and older, was first built at 611 S. Bonner St. in 1983 with the hope of creating an environment where older residents could live independently.
When the original building was torn down in at the beginning of 2015, construction crews began phase one of the rebuilding process, which was completed in May.

Residents give from the heart

Author Edward Everett Hale may have said it best: “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.”
Students at the Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home took Hale’s quote to heart this week when they knew they wanted to help victims of the south Louisiana flood but weren’t initially sure what to do.

Hawley, Heather.jpg

Having grown up in north Louisiana, I’ve never personally witnessed my friends standing outside of their demolished, water-crushed homes wishing they didn’t have to borrow clothes from others because theirs are soaked and caked with mud, or seeing my family attempt to stay together as they are rescued and then housed in a shelter with others that are just as scared as they are.

It’s not that the work was onerous, although at times it was consuming; focus was the problem. A flood of new sights and sounds and sensations inundated my senses and I forgot why I was there to begin with. That was 1995. Fast forward to 2014.

Lincoln Parish law enforcement officers want to find the owner of a dog that was rescued in Grambling on Wednesday and that had its snout zip tied shut.

“She’s better. She’s on her way to recovery,” Carol Martin, with the veterinary hospital, said Thursday.
Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Major Chad Alexander said the dog’s owner, or whoever tied its mouth shut, could face animal cruelty charges.
