Learning to drive is a big step in independence for teens. But, operating a vehicle can be a very dangerous experience, even for experienced drivers.
According to the Office of Motor Vehicles, more than 71,000 drivers obtain a learner’s permit or first-time license each year. With new driving laws passing every year, it is crucial that local teens and other first-time drivers learn to drive from someone who is properly certified.
In a world marred with headlines about young students being slain while sitting in their classrooms or eating their lunch at school, security for the hundreds of students in the Lincoln Parish school system is a top concern for parents and school leaders.
Superintendent of Schools Danny Bell said the school system has been tasked with protecting our most precious resources — our children.
“As we approach this, we’re just desiring to make schools as safe as possible,” Bell said. “As new technology comes out, we have to look at ways in which technology can help.”
We’ve seen it in the past, and we’ve seen in recent weeks — and we thank you.
The people of Lincoln Parish have come through again, coming together to help those in a time of need.
Recently you’ve read stories in the Ruston Daily Leader about hospitalized Leader Executive Sports Editor O.K. “Buddy” Davis and Deuce the injured Chihuahua needing help. And in their times of need, the people of Lincoln Parish responded.
Countless people in Lincoln Parish have donated money for Davis and sent cards and well wishes to him. For that, we can’t thank you enough.
