Each year those folks interested in traveling throughout Peason Ridge gather and go and see and visit many of the historical sites , old home sites, and training areas located on this vast area located in Natchitoches, Sabine, and Vernon parishes. The tour is held in an area that is filled with history dating back to the Native Americans, who first settled here, and from the days of the Louisiana Purchase when settlers and homesteaders began to arrive and carve out farms.

Social Security Matters

Dear Rusty: I have a question in regard to the “windfall act.” I am receiving a pension from the State of Nevada. I retired from the State, and did not pay into Social Security, but I worked in the private sector before and am currently working in the private sector. My question is: How much “penalty” will I be subject to when I decide to finally hang it up? Signed: State Retiree

Patchwork

Sometimes, you’re just lucky enough to get a really good waiter or waitress when you are eating out. We’ve been fortunate to find Tammy at Longhorn and just recently discovered another server at Red Lobster the night before Hubby-dear’s surgery.

That night I felt like lobster—one of my favorite meals. The server, a humorous fella, tried to talk me into a huge Lobster-fest special. It didn’t take much talking.

When he served my favorite Raspberry Margarita, he quipped that he threw some lobster in it! He was personable and checked on us regularly.
