I read in the paper about the new CAP program the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office has started. The program is a good one, but to take two of the best investigators to do this piddly little job is beyond me. Anybody can pass out pamphlets. Give it to a rookie to do or a reserve deputy.
Then the sheriff asked us to vote on a new tax when we are protected even less. I am sure Tommy Doss and Jim Stephens are enjoying riding and visiting, but we need them out there stopping drug dealers.
In April of 1968, I was asked to escort the body of a fallen sailor to his home in Ruston. I can’t ever recall anyone being ordered to perform such a duty. The escort must be motivated, sensitive and able to communicate effectively with the family of the deceased. He should also be a military model who reflects pride in his uniform and the duty he is to perform. Needless to say, I considered the request to be an honor and I approached it with seriousness and dedication.
Lincoln Center teachers and staff are thankful to our supporters during Appreciation Week. Those supporters are Dowling’s, Papa Johns, Popeye’s, Raising Cane’s, Subway and Janie Humphries. It was a great week. Thank you!
I want to make it clear right from the start that I am not afraid. I don't think that my American way of life is in danger from people who's mantra is terrorism.
As someone that has been a victim of gun violence, as well as violent muggings in three different American cities pre-9/11, I am more concerned about the everyday crime and violence caused by our own mostly disaffected youth, along with the crazed gun nuts.
