ETC… For August 30th


NSU has announced that all classes at the Natchitoches campus are cancelled for Wednesday, August 30th. Also the first Quarterback Club luncheon will not be held on Wednesday.

I’ve been talking to some folks who have spent many more years in the parish than the rest of us. In general they say this August is most unusual. Much too wet for August. And it’s been too cool. Not that anyone I asked wants to return to sweltering heat and dry weather.

A reminder that you still have time to register your children and grandchildren for the fall football program at Open Door Fellowship. Laurie Lowring said they have many children registered, and there is always room for more. She would like to have a few more volunteers. Call ODF Sports at 932-6267.

Be on the lookout for deals that seem too good to be true. The Better Business Bureau of northwest Louisiana is warning residents that with Hurricane Harvey comes scammers in its wake. If you have damage or any other repair work make sure the repairmen you hire are legit.

Northwestern State University is putting together a team of students, faculty and staff volunteers to assist victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and southeast Texas. “We in Louisiana are all too aware of how devastating a flood can be and the one in Houston is catastrophic,” said Dr. Curt Phifer, a professor of biology at NSU who is organizing the relief initiative. “Last year, people from all over the U.S. came to Louisiana to help flood victims in the Denham Springs and Baton Rouge area and just over 10 years ago, teams came to help Louisianians affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. This is our chance to return the favor.”
