Library offers events for children, adults

There are still a few long, hot summer days left before the new school year kicks off. And during that time Louisiana weather could turn up the heat or stay fairly mild.
Area residents should be prepared for both situations, so if you find yourself trying to beat the heat — why not check out the Lincoln Parish Library.
This summer library staff have stepped up their game and offered a variety of programs to suit all ages.

Taking care of the lawn

Stockton, Gary NEW.jpg

I get a lot of calls this time of the year about poorly growing lawns. Many times when I take a look at the situation it appears that improper mowing may be the issue.
Most of us don’t think about mowing until at little free time on the weekend comes up. Then it’s cut it and get done with it. But mowing has a measurable effect on the way grass grows.

Appreciate the 'boring' life

Degrie, Elizabeth (New).jpg

I have friends in all sorts of exciting places — England, Scotland, Africa, Washington, D.C., New Orleans and more. And, I’m not going to lie, sometimes I am very jealous of the opportunities they have.

072213 Hobbit Name C.jpg

Area teens showed their love for a literary classic Saturday as they attended a Hobbit party at the Lincoln Parish Library. Some of the young people donned their best hobbit attire while going barefoot in honor of the hairy-footed creatures written about by J.R.R. Tolkien. They learned about a hobbit’s lifestyle, what hobbits eat and what a hobbit’s house looks like. Pictured above is Heather Thorson, a freshman at Ruston High showing her nametag written in Dwarvish Runes.

“Stitch-by-stitch ... making one little dress at a time” was the inspirational theme for more than 50 First Baptist women who used their God given talents to make pillow-case dresses for little girls in remote villages of Nicaragua.
These little dresses, that may be prize possessions of grateful young girls, were packaged and transported recently in 100-pound tubs to their destination in Diriamba, Nicaragua.

DART training event will help all

Autrey, Terrie Q.jpg

This summer I have had many opportunities to catch up with old friends, good talks over coffee where we mull over the state of things around us. I have met with teachers, counselors and business owners. I have chatted with stay-at-home moms and dads who coach summer league. I have talked with sheriff’s deputies and pastors. One subject that always comes up is our concern about the many different dangers faced by today’s youth, and the increasingly violent behavior they witness and, in many cases, exhibit.

Pet of the week

072212 buddy C.jpg

This is Buddy named because he is everyone’s friend. He gets along with all the other dogs and never has a bad day. His most fun thing to do is play in the water, so he has a swimming pool in his pen. He is all black and could make a great family pet, so come and give him a home. Buddy is about 1-year-old and ready to be loved. His adoption fee is $65. Call 251-DOGS for more information. Come see the new office at 290 Rodeo Road, Ruston. The office is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday or call for an appointment.
