Ruston and Lincoln Parish law enforcement officials have big plans in the works for 2014.
Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone said he has plans to improve services for residents and the sheriff’s office.

Davis, OK.jpg

A sports fan in Lincoln Parish would have been best to keep a scorecard handy during 2013.
Not for keeping up with the players, but for administrative changes.
This was one the busiest seasons ever for such transactions.
Start with Louisiana Tech University and Grambling State University, both of whom underwent new looks at both athletics director and head football coach. I can’t ever recall that happening previously.
After the exit of Bruce Van De Velde, Tech got a new AD in Tommy McClelland, who arrived in North Louisiana after serving in same role at McNeese State University.

With the dry, cold weather coming through, we should take precautions so that our vehicles, plants and pipes remain safe during the blast of winter weather we will be experiencing.
Houses that are elevated on cinderblocks, mobile homes and other homes with exposed pipes run the risk of pipes freezing and bursting, which causes days to repair for the homeowner.

How to save more cash in 2014

Degrie, Elizabeth 8-13 NEW.jpg

In the Jan. 1 edition, we published a story focused on helping residents get out of debt. While I had the ear of local financial professionals, I also asked about the other hot topic when it comes to personal finances — savings.
Despite seeing an increase in pay because of my husband’s first “real-world” job, we haven’t quite managed to sort out savings. It seems like we’ve seen a financial “emergency” — the most recent of which being a mandatory set of tires for my car — every month since he started working. So, I was eager to learn more about how to save money.
