Taking time to find friends in surprising places

So much has happened this month, and yet nothing has happened. I say that because many of my plans got canceled when I went to the hospital, yet again, but life has not been dull.

For Valentine’s Day, our family received several heart balloons filled with helium. While they initially floated briskly to the ceiling, the air has begun to leak out, and they do not float as high as they once did.
Much like the helium that keeps a balloon afloat, every person needs to be encouraged to keep from becoming deflated and flat. The word encourage literally means “to inspire courage” or “give support, confidence or hope to (someone).”

State Sen. Rick Gallot spoke to students at Ruston High School as part of a “Legislator’s Back to School” endeavor to encourage high school students to voice their opinions in a representative democracy.
Gallot, who represents District 29, told students their input is important.
“I hear a lot of students say that they don’t feel like their opinion matters to politicians, but that’s not true,” Gallot said. “We’re not celebrities. We’re real people who go through the same everyday issues you do.”

in

The Lincoln Parish School Board received an unprecedented interest rate on bonds sold for as a result of the November 2013 property referendum during a board meeting on Wednesday.
The lowest rate bid, and accepted by the board, was at 2.86 percent interest, a rate that bond attorney Grant Schlueter said is truly amazing.
“We were very surprised,” Schlueter said. “We haven’t seen a rate that low in a while.”
Schlueter said the low rate was due to a variety of factors; all of which point to the LPSB being top-notch in fiscal responsibility.
