Published by the History Press (London & Charleston), this book picks up where Simmons’ last book, “Carolina Beach Music: The Classic Years,” left off, covering more classic beach music as well as the newer songs that were the beginning of a new wave of beach music in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

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.

Lots of learning this summer

in
Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

One thing I’ve noticed this summer, and over the course of many summers that I’ve lived here — children in Lincoln Parish have plenty of opportunity to prosper even when school isn’t in session.
Both Louisiana Tech and Grambling State University have played big roles in that fact with the LA Gear Up camps, bringing in high school students from all over the state to learn about all kinds of things, including the colleges they could possibly attend in the future.
