in

FARMERVILLE — A Monroe man was killed Sunday when the single-engine aircraft he was piloting crashed into Lake D’Arbonne.
Union Parish Sheriff Dusty Gates said the Federal Aviation Administration will likely order an autopsy to determine how 71-year-old David Lockard died.
Lockard’s Facebook profile states he was employed by Ruston Aviation. Someone answering the phone at Ruston Aviation this morning said they could not confirm he was employed by the company.

Most residents who drive by the Lincoln Parish Detention Center don’t take a second glance at the large garden in the front of the compound, but that produce saves thousands of tax dollars each year, Warden Jim Tuten said.
In fact, the gardens saved taxpayers $10,000 last year in the kitchen alone, he said.
Created in 2014, the idea for the garden came from Tuten.

Try, try again.
One of life’s simplest and richest pleasures for me is to carefully unwrap the silver paper off a Hershey Kiss and pop it my mouth.
I never chew — I just roll it on my tongue and let it melt in my mouth. Ahhhh, just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
My family loves to use the Hershey chocolate bar on graham crackers with a melted marshmallow for a good old fashioned s’more.
But do you know that these two favorites of mine almost never were?

Finding ways to get help in your darkest hour

Mama’s birthday was Saturday. She would have been 104.
