School is out, vacations are underway and folks with a bent toward fishing are keeping the waters of local lakes astir with activity.
One of those anglers who will be on the lake at every opportunity is Greg Terzia, owner of Greg Terzia’s Bait and Tackle in Ruston. According to Terzia, June is a good time to catch some quality bass on either of his two favorite area lakes, Caney and D’Arbonne.

Sunday Movie Review: “Inside Out”

in

After a year off following a bit of a critical slump, Pixar is back with “Inside Out,” as original a concept as it’s had in a while. The film is sweet and funny and brimming with creativity. That creativity is its greatest strength and its greatest weakness.
The film follows the adventures of the personified (well, converted to some kind of beings anyway) emotions inside the head of an 11-year-old girl named Riley (Kaitlyn Dias). Their leader is Joy (Amy Poehler), who feels constantly threatened by Sadness (Phyllis Smith).

And even if you did see the movie, you would only catch a passing glimpse of me and my siblings as we played the critical theatrical role of the extras.

Irby, Marna.jpg

 Over the years, my daughter, Becky, my daughter-in-law, Mary Hilan, my niece, Debbie, and my great granddaughter, Amanda, have all been contestants — Becky and Mary Hilan more than once.
