The Lincoln Parish Library has a lot to boast about in 2012. Not only was the library named the public library of the year for 2012, it is also the workplace of this year’s Librarian of the Year Award recipient.
Jeremy Bolom, assistant director and head of public service for the library, was presented with the Librarian of the Year Award at the 2012 Louisiana Library Association Conference held at the Shreveport Convention Center in Shreveport last week.
Motorists coming to the intersection of Reynolds Drive and Goodwin Road will soon be able to directly access Celebrity Drive. The approximately $567,000 project is expected to be complete in early February. The three-lane extension will include a turning lane. Once the extension is completed, the current three-way stop at the intersection of Reynolds Drive and Goodwin Road will become a four-way stop.

“I applaud everybody who is here because of hard work,” Thomas, Grambling State University’s Benjamin S. Quales Endowed Professor of History, told a GSU honors convocation audience, “but some of you are here because you cheated.”
He said those who cheated know who they are, and they should not feel honored at all because people who have “true honor live by integrity.”
