Just the other day, I overheard someone stating they didn’t have the time to read, due to being busy with school and work.
I was a little hard pressed due partly to the fact that working a full-time job, being a mother and a wife I still manage to pick up a book at least a few nights a week. And if it is one that particularly strikes my fancy, I will make extra time to read.
During the month of October we recognize a variety of different areas — domestic abuse, breast cancer, bullying and even books. October is National Book Month.

Offers up information on state funds
Kennedy, John.jpg

Louisiana has plenty of money but doesn’t spend it wisely, state Treasurer John Kennedy said Wednesday.
Debunking often-heard political claims that the state is short on funds, Kennedy said Louisiana’s budget has increased at the same time the state has lost population.
“It’s not how much money we have that is our problem,” Kennedy told the Ruston Rotary Club. “Our problem is how we spend the money we do have.”
