Chairman seeks sports fans’ support

in

Louisiana’s incredible sports culture is certainly one of our state’s major bragging points. Soon, we’ll have a place to celebrate it when the long-awaited Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Museum opens next summer in Natchitoches.
Now, Louisiana sports fans have an urgent opportunity. The Hall of Fame Foundation is racing toward an Oct. 31 deadline to meet a $250,000 Challenge Grant with all proceeds supporting completion of exhibits for the museum.

More than 2 running for president

in

There are 11 people running for president. After five months of searching and listening, I have found someone that I can vote for to be president who is not a liberal, not a moderate, but a Bible-believing conservative.  
Some people don’t want Obama or Romney to be president, but seem to think that they are the only ones to vote for. Some people are saying that they aren’t going to vote at all. Well, I have discovered someone that is running for president, and is on our voting ballot that should be considered at this critical time. I had to do my homework, and I had to believe that God has someone that I could vote for other than Romney or Obama. The Bible tells us to seek and you will find (Matthew 7:7-8). Well, I have found that there are 11 people on our voting ballot that are running for president. Nine of them have had no media coverage, and haven’t been invited to the debates; however, three of them are running on a platform that support Bible principles. Surprised!

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Thirteen days, 50 years ago. These were some of the most dangerous days in the history of our nation and the world.
For those around my age and older, you probably well recall those 13 days in October 1962 — the Cuban Missile Crisis. It is exactly 50 years ago that you read that as a nation we were in the grips of uncertainty and in many circles fear. We were literally, especially based on what we know now, on the brink of nuclear war. Some even referenced the time as a potential “Armageddon.”

A presidential election is almost upon us. But if you have young children or grandchildren, you know what’s really important this week is Butterfingers, not ballots, and Pop Rocks, not the popular vote.
Yes, it’s Halloween time again, which means you’ll see plenty of witches and vampires scurrying around. You’ll no doubt find these characters more amusing than frightening, but you don’t have to look far to find things that are a bit more alarming — such as these scary investment moves:
