The problem with parents conveying authority

in
Rosemond, John.jpg

Four sentences into her Wall Street Journal article on recent research into spanking (“Spanking for Misbehavior? It Causes More!” Dec. 17, 2017), the author, Susan Pinker, makes two grievous errors: first, she says that children under 7 cannot master their emotions; second, she says a fair amount of misbehavior on the part of a young child distinguishes him from a robot.

It is now time to take a stand in the gap

in
Randy 2018 2018.jpg

I’m not sure when all this gap business started — under what White House administration — that is. I was in the cradle with Eisenhower was in office and age 4 when John F. Kennedy was sworn in as youngest, most stylish, most articulate and handsome president. His inauguration speech caused thousands of young people to begin work for voting rights, civil rights, fair housing, and in the Peace Corps, and other things that we Americans were challenged to do for our country. Young people felt empowered and encouraged to make a difference.

Celebrating a dream

Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream was simple.
King dreamt that we could live in a nation where citizens were judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
He dreamt that one day his four children could walk hand-in-hand with children of all colors and backgrounds.
He dreamt that we could live in a world where love defeated fear and we all could love one another equally.
Since the Civil Rights movement, this nation has made many strides to becoming what King envisioned.

Be like Joseph: Group meetings make a difference

Bernard, Donna.jpg

Joseph is a hard kid. He doesn’t like to listen, he often deliberately disobeys, and it is no secret that he is unhappy about past events in his life.
This third-grader has a great time, however, with the kids that are active in our weekly Children’s Group meetings hosted by staff and volunteers of the Domestic Abuse Resistance Team.

Saints’ loss anything but comical

in
Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

Are you kidding me?
Was that Lucy Van Pelt of Peanuts cartoon fame wearing a No. 14 purple jersey last night?
It must have been, because the Minnesota Viking wearing that jersey pulled the ball — and a Saints win— right from under me last night as I fell back-first to my living room floor yelling “ARRGHHH!”
The Saints were 10 seconds away from one of the most remarkable comebacks in NFL playoff history, somehow rallying from a 17-0 halftime deficit on the road against the NFL’s best defense in a boisterous and hostile environment.

Chamber makes up funds lost during Peach Festival

in

The Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce was able to “close the gap” of the approximately $50,000 lost during 2017’s Louisiana Peach Festival through various holiday events presented by the Chamber, said Judy Copeland, Chamber president.
“This means we close the 2017 (year) with a loss, but we still have money in the bank,” Copeland said. “We will scale back some expenses on Peach Festival, but that will put us back in line with previous years.”
Chamber officials announced they had taken over and created several events in December to replenish the money lost from Peach Fest.
