  Weekend rains were devastating for most of the tulips in the area, so enjoy these while you wait for their replacements.  And, take heart!  Dogwoods and wisteria are starting to show up all over town!

Thanks to The News Star for the following excellent article written by Greg Hilburn: 2012 gets down to BUSINESS Ouachita Parish has been bleeding jobs for almost a decade, but at least two economists believe the regional hub of northeastern Louisiana could enjoy net job growth in 2012, thanks to ongoing expansions at CenturyLink and JPMorgan Chase & Co. "There has been a slow, steady decline in employment in Ouachita Parish for nine consecutive years, but I expect that to abate in 2012," said Bob Eisenstadt, director of the University of Louisiana at Monroe's Center for Business and Economic Research. "I believe we've bottomed out and will see a modest turnaround." LSU economists Loren Scott and James Richardson forecast a growth rate of 0.5 percent for Ouachita in 2012 after a lost dec...

School started here on Monday. I'm too old to have a student at the elementary school only a block away, but I consider myself to be very lucky living so close to this wonderful school. Why? Every morning I hear the principal's voice on the loudspeaker say, "Good morning, boys and girls! Please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance."  It's a wonderful way to start the day--for the students and for me! PS.Be sure to have your eyes open for those precious ones while driving near the school zones.

  Getting the best rates in today’s market requires a good credit score.  Lenders today are looking for a credit score above 740.  If you are looking to purchase a home, it is important to know how to improve your credit score.  According to Gina Qualls, our partner at Community Trust Bank, when they look at your credit, they receive a report from all three credit bureaus: Equifax, TransUnion and Experian.  They take the middle score reported by these bureaus and that is the score used when determining your rate.   In order to improve your credit score, be sure that you are consistently paying your bills on time.  This is one of the biggest factors in maintaining or raising your credit score and being consistent in this habit will help improve your credit it. Be sure to keep the balance...

The News Star, 8/3/2011 It's the fourth annual Wet 'n Wild Day Saturday at the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo and kids of all ages are invited and bring their parents for a day of fun. "It's an event day at the zoo," said zoo director Joe Clawson. "We'll have water slides and slip and slides and two concerts by Trout Fishing in America. They do a kids' show and it's very popular." Plus, with the $7 admission you can take a break from the water fun and check out the animals at the zoo. "We charge a little bit extra and that includes admission to the zoo. And every penny we raise in admission that day goes to improvements at the zoo," Clawson added. Since the weather is predicted to be scorching, kids and adults should slather on the sunscreen and be ready to get hot and wet. "Be sure...
