Saturday marks the big day for Lincoln Parish and the state of Louisiana.
From 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., various poll sites throughout the parish will be open for residents to exercise their right to vote. When arriving at the courthouse, residents will need either a driver’s license or a picture ID that shows both a name and signature.
The wave of Black Friday shoppers has hopefully cleared and for those of us who live in thriving little communities it is now to time to turn to our neighbors.
When you shop local you are not helping some unnamed CEO of a company purchase a third home. But instead you are helping to keep more money in our local economy.
And more than that, when you buy from your local businesses you are helping a little girl get dance lessons. You are helping a mom and dad put food on the table. You are helping a little boy get a team jersey. You are helping a family to pay for their child’s college.
