Man — I thought that a change in weather to cooler temperatures would give us a rain. Well I guess I got mine.
I got one of the two-inch rains on one afternoon and the next day I was over at the Walmart parking lot when one of the six-inch rains came by.
As the rain hit the hot pavement, steam came up, and the raindrops that were about six inches apart would dry up and the drop disappeared into the air, just like the rain drops from the rain that produced drops two inches apart the day earlier. It has cooled off and 79 degree nights feel cool.

Vote to help area youth succeed

Servicing nearly 100 children per day, the Boys and Girls Clubs of North Central Louisiana is making its way into the lives of Lincoln Parish children up through grade six.
However, as with everything else, the economy has put a damper on the club’s ability to reach out to more youth.
But, the club has been given the opportunity to receive a $50,000 grant through the Pepsi Refresh Campaign.
If the club ranks in the Top 10 and wins, the money will be used to mobilize the club, taking it to junior and high school youth.
