Two candidates running for a pair of area state Senate seats touted their platforms Monday at a meeting of the North Central Louisiana TEA Party.
Stewart Cathey Jr., a contender for the District 35 seat, and former Congressman Vance McAllister, who’s seeking the District 33 seat, both pushed budget reform and more state control over elementary and secondary education. The election is Oct. 24.
October was a busy month for students and teachers at Lincoln Parish Early Childhood Center.
On Oct. 10, the school participated in a walk for Breast Cancer Awareness. Students decked out in pink marched around the LPECC parking lot playing musical instruments and noise makers, waving pink flags and sporting signs honoring their family and friends.
