Stepping into the current facilities of the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office is much like stepping back in time.

“When I started in 1976 we had 471 calls for service that whole year,” Stone said. “Last year, we had 16,000.”

When the Rev. Cathy Brewton first dreamed of what is now LifeHouse Ministries, her vision included a flourishing community garden filled with vegetables, fruit trees and flowers.
The vision is becoming reality. LifeHouse has been awarded a grant from the Lincoln Health Foundation to develop the garden.
“It’s right in our wheelhouse in terms of what we like to see happening,” Norman Haynes, Lincoln Health Foundation’s chief executive officer, said. “It really does hit the major hope that we can influence and change the mindset of folks about healthy nutrition.”

Tech student drowns in Florida

in

NAVARRE BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The body of a missing Louisiana swimmer has been recovered off a Florida Panhandle beach.
Officials say the body of 21-year-old Nathan Hughey, of Pineville, was found about 35 feet offshore Thursday.
He went missing on Wednesday afternoon while swimming with his sister in the rough Gulf of Mexico surf.

I consider myself fortunate indeed in my profession as an outdoors communicator to get the opportunity to go places and do stuff I probably wouldn’t have access to otherwise.
One thing I shall be eternally grateful for is my open invitation to travel to Menard County in Texas each spring to do battle with Rio Grande gobblers. An individual I owe a debt of gratitude to is Walt Russell, owner of Russell Ranch where the gobbler games take place.
