Volunteers needed to lend hand

Year 2016 marks the 100th birthday of the National Park Service and the 50th birthday of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The NHPA is a cornerstone of American historic preservation. It was created in the belief that too many important historic places were being lost to post-World War II development and construction, and that the federal government could (and should) play an important role in protecting places that embody the United States’ cultural heritage.

Early days in the life of LaSalle residents . .

From the early days of this parish until the mid-1900’s, very few residents had access to refrigeration in their home via way of refrigerators or deep freezes. However, a lot of folks had ice boxes. Large blocks of ice was placed in the top of the box to keep the contents in the box cold.
