Evaluating plant performance, site analysis

It looks like fall weather has arrived in north Louisiana. The cooler weather has allowed many gardeners to spend much needed time outside.
Although the past summer’s growing season was very favorable for landscape plants and vegetable gardens, there are always problem areas where gardeners often ignore or haphazardly try to find a solution.
September is an excellent month to take a look at overall plant performance and decide on an action to correct any site problems or plant selections.

A coffee shop isn’t something Parish Press owner Bradley Walker, and wife Katie, ever saw in the cards, but when Crescent City Coffee shut its doors over the summer, Walker said he felt the parish still needed a locally-owned coffee shop.
“(Crescent City) shut down and we bought all the equipment,” Walker said. “We came in and renovated all summer long, obviously rebranded everything with the new name and logo.”

Lincoln Parish School Superintendent Danny Bell described the situation of changing the district’s insurance policy to comply with the ACA as being between a “rock and a hard place.” Nonetheless, Bell said the board is doing all they can to compensate employees.

A coalition of clergy

Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

Recently, I wrote a column about the critical role that the church plays in supporting victims of domestic violence. I pointed out that, in the past, churches were often the first place where a woman turned when she was being abused by her husband. Unfortunately, in many instances, the church failed to support these women. Pastors often reminded them of the biblical admonition for wives to submit to their husbands, and advised them to return home and try to be a better wife. Sadly, this approach often resulted in more abuse, increased severity of abuse, and sometimes even death.
