Outbreak of flu in Lincoln

in
Some diagnosed had a vaccine

Schools and businesses may begin feeling the strain as more than 500 Lincoln Parish residents have been diagnosed with the flu this season at two local offices alone.
Nationwide, the flu has reached near epidemic proportions, and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Louisiana is one of 29 states reporting high instances of flu-like illness.
Local doctors have seen a great deal of flu-activity, even in those who followed the suggestion to get a flu shot.

When Johnny McCarter needs to go to dialysis treatment, he does not drive or catch a ride from a friend. Instead, he is transported by Lincoln Parish’s public transportation system.
“I ride on Monday, Wednesday and Friday,” McCarter said. “I really depend on it. It would be rough — really hard on me — if they didn’t have it.”

Current, anticipated cuts threaten DART

in
Positions eliminated; advocates criticize new victim shelter model
1-1_34.jpg

The Domestic Abuse Resistance Team is cutting expenses and reducing some services after being hit with a midyear state budget cut.
Terrie Queen Autrey, DART community advocate, said domestic violence programs under the state Division of Child and Family Services were cut 21.2 percent, or almost a million dollars.
What this means locally is that instead of getting the full $400,000 in state funding for the fiscal year from July 2012 to June 2013, DART will receive $63,000 less.

Gun rights, federal rules and the sheriff

in

As the chief law enforcement officer in Lincoln Parish, Sheriff Mike Stone was required to take an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. Having taken that oath, I would like to know if he will honor his oath by refusing to enforce federal rules, regulations and directives that violate the Constitution and/or the Bill of Rights.

A brother on a butterfly

in
Rogers, Randy.jpg

I lost my brother in 2012. Well, I didn’t really lose him, not like losing my car at the mall parking lot or anything. No, he passed away.
Now, before you send me a nasty email, the only reason I choose to use that bit of morbid irreverent humor is because my brother Jimmy would be the first one to laugh. Of all the Rogers kids, Jimmy had the quickest wit, and so consequently, I stole most of my best lines from him.

Technology used to pray; cat helps prisoner

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Escaping the “real” news of the world, your writer ventures into the arena of light-hearted stories and comments.
Electronic prayer?
Quite often many of us solicit prayer from friends, church-goers, persons of faith and family. We might make the request fervently or without a lot of thought. Then on the giving end we might offer to pray for a person, a cure or other compelling reasons. Is there now a new way to request prayer requests?

Smallest businesses may benefit from 401(k)

in
Conville, Bobby.jpg

Is an individual 401(k) plan right for you?
If you can answer “yes” to either of the following questions, then maybe it is: “Are you the sole employee of your business?” or “Does your business employ only you, your co-owners and spouses?” Chances are — even if you did answer “yes” — you’ve never considered establishing a 401(k) plan to save for retirement because you think they’re strictly for corporations. They’re not. Tax law changes have made 401(k) plans attractive for the very smallest businesses — especially if you’re looking to make substantial contributions.
An Individual 401(k) is a unique retirement savings opportunity designed for corporations, partnerships and sole proprietorships that employ only owners, their spouses and certain family members. If you’re an independent consultant, real estate agent or accountant, an Individual 401(k) may be a good retirement plan option for you.
