Thoughts of Holder-Barker

But it had a special meaning to me personally, too. It brought forth thoughts of the benefits of spending one’s life in the same profession and in the same place and the stability that offers to one’s family and one’s employer.
The last time I saw the statistics, I believe they indicated more and more people were choosing this lifestyle after many years of an increasingly mobile society.

Judge rules against Friedley lawsuit

Lewellyan was appointed to the case by the Louisiana Supreme Court when Third Judicial District’s three judges — R. Wayne Smith, Cynthia Woodard and J.B. McCallum — recused themselves.
After The Leader and The Morning Paper were removed from the suit, Lewellyan listened as Andy Shealy, attorney for the CVB, and Brady King, attorney for The News-Star and Nick Deriso argued for the motion to strike, with Cameron attempting to rebut their claims.

Moats now helping out young Eagles

Moats, as is his nature seemingly 24/7, smiles big and makes the following statement:
“I’ll help anybody, but I’m still learning, too, so I double check before I tell them. I want to make sure I’m telling them the right things.”
The Dallas product who set numerous ground rushing records at Tech before being a third round draftee of the Eagles in 2005 was in the same shoes of those newcomers oh-not-so-long ago.
He was a rookie trying to make the big leap from college to the pros and a year earlier than most prospects, no less.

Crosses offer connection to servicemen

A team of five women is addressing this concern with Ryan’s Clinging Cross Ministry, which lets area people sponsor a cross for $10 to be sent as a sign of comfort to a serviceman or woman.
The ministry ships the curved crosses with a dove emblem in the center to military bases in Iraq.
Linda Echols introduced the cross sponsorship idea shortly after Ruston native Ryan Jones, for whom the ministry is named, was deployed to Camp Warhorse in Iraq.

Temple Baptist offers "clinging cross"

She said she heard of the Clinging Cross from a customer while she was shopping in a Christian bookstore, but kind of dismissed it until the following night when she awoke again to the idea of Ryan’s Clinging Cross Ministry.
“(God) just revealed things to me,” Echols said. “And the next night the same thing happened. It was a few weeks later that Ryan was deployed to Iraq.”
Ryan, who is currently deployed at Camp Warhorse in Iraq, is the son of Sherry Jones, a member of the Temple Baptist Church with Echols.

Story of notorious couple lives on

Over the next four years, the duo’s roller coaster of love carried them through neighboring states to rob banks, take hostages and gun down anyone who got in their paths.
The couple’s final ride came to an end in 1934 near Gibsland when six officers opened fire on a beige Ford containing the young lovers.

Malone: Missing the game?

But returning to the game in another role?
All options are seemingly open after Malone was invited by the Utah Jazz to evaluate players for the franchise this past weekend in a pre-draft workout held at the team’s practice facility.
He assisted team staff members in analyzing the skills of late June draft prospects Shelden Williams of Duke, Hilton Armstrong of Connecticut, Mouhamed Saer Sene of Senegal and Patrick O’Bryant of Bradley.
He enjoyed the experience and indicated that he wouldn’t discount getting back into the game in some capacity.

Be aware of heat risks this summer

The elderly, in particular, are more susceptible to heat-related illnesses, such as heat stroke and exhaustion.
Area agencies regularly hold fan drives to help address this need. We encourage community members to contribute to these drives and to organizations that help in this area.
Humanitarian Enterprises of Lincoln Parish (H.E.L.P.) is accepting applications now for distribution of fans, with first priority given to people without central air or with insufficient cooling devices.
Such an effort is to be commended and supported.

Memory of veterans lives on

The documentary, produced by Larry Cappetto, provides a first-hand account of the invasion from the soldiers who were there — on the boats, on the beaches and beside their fallen comrades, who they insist are the true heroes.
“We hope to make this an annual event in remembrance of those who served in the armed forces,” Kathy Reeg, with Kilpatrick’s, said.
The premiere event marked the first time a movie had been shown in the Dixie since the theater installed a new screen and projector.
Kilpatrick’s also donated a flag to the Dixie as a constant symbol of
