During the month of December, Lincoln Parish 4-H Clubs held the 4-H Egg and Pecan Cooking Contest at each school. 4-H members from throughout Lincoln Parish had the opportunity to enter the cooking contest at their school.
There were two categories, egg cookery and pecan cookery. The 4-H members could enter the egg cooking contest in the dessert, main dish or salad/appetizer divisions and they could enter the pecan cooking contest in the candy, cookie or other divisions.

Voice views on sagging pants ordinance

During the November regular Grambling City Hall meeting, Police Chief Tommy Clark brought up the issue of creating an ordinance to ban sagging pants under the pretense of indecent exposure inside the municipal limits of Grambling.
It was during the same meeting that Clark stated he had received complaints from community members about other residents — largely of the young adult demographic — exposing their undergarments through a trend known as sagging.

Man's concerns target gun column

in

It is supremely bad form to write an opinion piece in opposition to matters that involve incontrovertible facts, and for the sake of the reputation of journalism, I wish Ms. Schilling had at least attempted a cursory investigation into the subject of her article (“Gun Laws: We can do better,” Dec. 23, 2012).

An old look at new year

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Happy New Year to all of you. I hope that your Christmas season and celebration was enjoyable and meaningful. I hope for all of us that we move past the commercialism of the season and keep our focus on that which is truly important.
We now approach Tuesday, a holiday with which I would debate. I wish that New Year’s Day was in September at the beginning of the school year and football season. Having the celebration of the “new” year right after Christmas is just a little bit too much holiday time for me during such a short period. And I have not always been alone in this sentiment.

Nominees for 2012 sought
