in
040112 Brandon Moore C.jpg

Louisiana TechUniversity’s school of biological sciences scored big when former Duke University and New England Patriots offensive tackle Brandon Moore joined the faculty.
The assistant professor, took an unusual route in becoming a tenure-track assistant professor.
First there was the decision to attend college 400 miles from his hometown of Philadelphia, Pa., and play ball in North Carolina at Duke, a school known for brilliance in the classroom and on the basketball court but not so much on the football field. A big part of the decision was Duke’s newest coach.

Writer encourages political action

in

Fellow Americans, our Founding Fathers created an amazing document when they wrote our Constitution.
They were inspired by God and shed blood, sweat and tears to create a nation based on personal freedom. We are free, but have too many regulations, laws and encroachments that hinder the freedom of our everyday activities. 
America is blessed with our liberty.  Our Constitution is the greatest charter of liberty ever written. It is the reason America emerged quickly as the most free and most prosperous nation in human history.  We are the envy of every nation in the world.

Writer urges thought before voting

in

President Obama still defends his oil policy as gas prices soar to all time highs because we are at an eight year high in domestic oil producing at 5.6 million barrels per day. 
But what is not mentioned when he reminds us of his administrations accomplishments and trying to take credit for this drilling is this: the 5.6 million is with private drillers and 9 million barrels per day have been produced in prior administrations.

JAs thankful for community help

in

Amazing is the only word we can think to describe our Fifth Annual Dinner and A Movie at Lincoln Parish Park on March 23.  We had close to 1,200 people in attendance, 34 booths with activities for children, too many giveaways to count, singers, a magician, dancers, gymnasts, games, raffles, story time, popcorn, cotton candy and of course the movie.
First of all, a big thank you goes to James Ramsaur and the entire staff of the Lincoln Parish Park for their wonderful assistance and hospitality. The Park was the perfect location for this event! We can’t thank you enough.

Celebrating the greatest moment

in
Bleich, Joe C.jpg

For the past two weeks leading up to Easter, I have been sharing some thoughts concerning what I believe to be the most monumental time in history, the life of Jesus and His death, as well as the illegalities concerning His so-called trial prior to His crucifixion and death. I ended with some references to the fact that he did not have counsel; the arrest was for no “crime”; and that He was not adequately informed of the nature of the charges against Him. All of these points would have caused His case to be dismissed in any fair system.

Davis, OK.jpg

Had a fan of the New Orleans Saints tried, he couldn’t have picked a much better place to soak up the success and spirit of the franchise than in Lincoln Parish this weekend.
This was black-and-gold bleeding “heaven.”
Who shows up on Friday night at the Squire Creek Golf and Country Club but Sean Payton to give the keynote speech at the annual “Big Whit77 Foundation” dinner for sponsors?
