Remember all presidents today

Celebrated on the third Monday of February is a day set aside to honor the legacies of U.S. presidents.
The holiday was first established in 1800, when Congress declared Feb. 22 — George Washington’s birthday — a federal holiday.
Still legally known as Washington’s Birthday, Presidents’ Day has become a day to honor not only Washington, but Abraham Lincoln, the 16th U.S. president who was born on Feb. 12, and the lives and accomplishments of all U.S. presidents.

Rosemond, John.jpg

Parents tell me their daughter is intelligent and did well in school up until the seventh grade, at which time she stopped doing the required work and her grades, consequently, went down the proverbial tube.
My response: “Who cares?”
Parents tell me their 8-year-old son still has four or five “accidents” per week in his clothing. The child’s pediatrician has determined that there is no physical problem (in which case, these stinky events are more accurately called “on purposes” or “lazies”).

Earlier this month the Lincoln Parish Library hosted a Black History Month speaker.
Louisiana Tech professor David Anderson introduced the speaker Cheryl Mango-Ambrose, Master of Arts candidate at Tech.
