Many local residents flocked to the area surrounding Temple Baptist Church for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display on Wednesday night.
Pictured right are George Budds, Frank Reger, Margot Budds and Carleigh Reger mesmerized by the fireworks display.
Dan Simonsen a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force, will present “Planning the Air War of WWII” at the July Historical Happening lecture at 6:30 p.m. today in the Lincoln Community Room.
The air war plan the United States started with during World War II was written in nine days. It was the first plan of its type. It was reportedly considered ground breaking in that not only did it outline the type and number of aircraft required for winning the war; it also identified independent missions for the Army Air Forces. Simonsen will also discuss the U.S. B-17 and B-24 bombers and will answer questions about the airplanes used in the war.
The goal to “inform, involve and inspire” is what the Lincoln Parish TEA Party hopes to achieve during a forum at 6 p.m. Monday at the Ruston Country Club.
“We don’t take any position with candidates,” TEA Party Coordinator Bob Flournoy said. “We just let them present their case. People can see them in person and decide what they think is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.”
Candidates for district judge and district attorney will be there to convey their ideas and answer questions from the audience.
