Passionate pursuits

Some people drudge through their morning routine mentally preparing themselves for another day of a job they tolerate. Byron Miller, however, is passionate about education.
“I think (education) was something that I felt that I’m naturally gifted towards,” Miller said. “I like teaching. My family sometimes laments that. You can never say something in a short brief way, got to explain everything. My mom was an educator, several of my family members are educators, so I was comfortable and familiar with that. But, I also, always had a positive view of education both in high school and college. Learning is something I enjoy doing, it’s not something that is laborious and something I just want to get done. I really enjoy it. So, it was very natural to pursue that.”

Don’t forget to vaccinate kids

Students will be headed back to class soon, and many parents have begun the preparations. And, the Department of Health and Hospitals wants to make sure that residents don’t forget one vital piece of the back to school equation — vaccinations.
“I want to remind parents of their responsibility, ensuring that their children receive the shots they need,” said DHH Secretary Kathy Kliebert in a recent release. “Vaccination is a simple process with big rewards. These vaccines help keep children healthy, so they can spend more days in the classroom and out of the doctor’s office.”

Thanks Deputy Henderson

in

On June 27, Cranford’s Northside had an aquarium that shorted out and caught fire at 2 a.m.
At 2:10 a.m., the alarm was triggered, prompting a call to the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office. The first deputy to respond, Matt Henderson, quickly assessed the situation and alerted the Lincoln Parish Fire Department. At that point, Henderson went beyond a regular response and busted the front door in and quickly extinguished the blaze, avoiding what would have been a potentially catastrophic fire.

American Farm Bureau trade specialist Dave Salmonsen said the biggest sticking points in the deal involve agriculture. Discussion in this round was more process-oriented with plenty more issue-oriented discussion related to ag in the months to follow, he said.

Dim future via Obamacare

in
Bleich, Joe C.jpg

We have never seen anything like it. We have never felt anything like it. We have no idea — no idea— of what truly is ahead. I’m referring to the new health care system on the verge of implementation, the federal Affordable Care Act, sometimes referred to as ObamaCare.
The nickname is somewhat justified and partially inaccurate; a majority of our Congress passed the law, many of whom face re-election next year.

MLB’s war on drugs noticed in Lincoln Parish

in
Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

It’s something we’re getting tired off — the albatross that just won’t go away.
Yes, we’re talking about the state of Major League Baseball.
It’s time to clean up the game, as Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun agreed this week to a 65-game suspension imposed by Major League Baseball over evidence that he used Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs). That after years of denial on his part about using such substances.
