Girl Scouts kick off annual cookie sales

Girl Scouts this year are selling cookies in creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe. Even in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, girls at Girl Scouts of Louisiana – Pines to the Gulf (GSLPG) are adapting their sales methods to share the joy of Girl Scout Cookies through the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program—including taking contact-free pickup and delivery orders through a new national collaboration with Grubhub.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program has long taught girls how to run a business via in-person booths, door-to-door activity, and the Digital Cookie® platform online, which GSUSA launched in 2014. Though things may look a little different this year, girls are finding innovative ways to continue supplying cookies to customers.

Lichens are likable

Lichens are likable

Now that the majority of our deciduous plants have dropped their leaves, you may have noticed the gray coloring on the trunks of some trees and shrubs in your landscape. When trunks and branches become bare, these gray areas become evident and may worry even the most avid gardeners.

No need for concern. Most likely, these are lichens — likable, harmless organisms.

You might ask yourself: What is a lichen? They are very interesting (and beautiful, in my humble opinion) organisms found in every ecosystem on Earth. Lichens grow in deserts, urban landscapes, tropical rainforests and even tundras.

Americans to be reunited unclaimed savings bonds

President Donald Trump has issued an executive order based on Sen. John Kennedy’s (R-La.) legislation requiring the Treasury Secretary to provide states with information to help their residents claim approximately $26 billion in unredeemed savings bonds.

“Government is always delighted to collect taxes, but it’s not often that Big Brother goes out of its way to reunite people with their hard-earned money. I’m thankful that the president’s executive order does just that by making the government pay up on matured savings bonds, even if the original investors have passed away.

National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is Jan. 9

In this day and age when law enforcement departments throughout the country are coming under fire and the far left have launched a campaign against law enforcement officers, it is more appropriate to honor our men and women who wear a badge.

What better time for this than “Law Enforcement Appreciation Day” slated for January 9, 2021. This is the perfect time to show officers we understand how difficult it is to perform their duties.

It is also important to show officers how much we understand their difficult work and appreciate their sacrifice and risk.
