I wonder what Mother’s Day was like for Eve. The first one must have been somewhere between Genesis 4:1 and 4:8.

Lincoln Parish holds many attractions for every person in the family.
The parish has Grambling’s Eddie Robinson Museum, for the sports lover, downtown Ruston, for the shopping lover, and Dubach’s Chicken Festival, for the — well — chicken lover.

Sean Payton may not be able to contact anyone from the National Football League until after this upcoming season’s Super Bowl is over, but he will still be able to make an impact on the New Orleans Saints’ training camp and their push toward the playoffs in 2012.
How can a man who was punished after last season with a yearlong suspension and ban from the league for his involvement in covering up the “Bountygate” scandal still make an impact on his team?

Once you’re there, you’ll know exactly how the Super Bowl winning coach is still impacting the team.
