Rep. Brown presented award…

milk. I found our largest pan and warmed the milk. I found a super-size mixing bowl reserved for family reunions and started mixing. When I began adding flour, the bowl was about to overflow, so I had to separate it into other bowls. I finally had it all mixed, and I started rolling out the dough. By noon I had cooked quite a few batches, but I still had pans full of dough. By evening I had cooked most of the rolls.

About dinner time Donna called to see if I needed anything before she left town.

“Yes,” I replied. “We need milk.”

“I thought we had plenty,” she replied.

“I had to use some to make rolls,” I said.

She seemed doubtful, but said she would stop at the store and get some. When she finally got home and walked into the house, she gasped. Just about every inch of counter space was covered with piles of rolls.

She looked around and asked, “What happened?”

Mason honored as a 73-year member

William Bohman “Bo” McCartney, Sr. of Jena was honored by members of Michael Dempsey Masonic Lodge #327 in Jena on Tuesday, September 12, 2017, for being a 73-year member of the Lodge. McCartney will turn 95-years old in December this year.

In 1950, McCartney Oil Company had its beginning as McCartney used one used bulldozer to build drilling locations in the area. He was also employed as a tool pusher for Justiss Oil Company at the time, a job he would continue until he retired in 1973 to devote his full time to his business.

In 1960, the local fuel and lube distributor passed away and at the same time, a new generation of drilling rigs were using diesel as fuel instead of propane. This presented an opportunity that transformed McCartney Oil into the company it is today. The newly formed fuel distributorship was branded Amoco on the fuel side and Amoco and Parade on the lubricants side.

Make plans early for landscape planting

By Dan Gill LSU AgCenter Horticulturist

Late October through March is prime time for planting hardy trees, shrubs and ground covers in Louisiana landscapes. That means now is an excellent time to assess your landscape and begin to make plans for planting this fall.

Landscaping is a great way to give your home a beautiful appearance as well as make outdoor spaces function usefully for the family. The benefits of a well-planned landscape are many, from providing shade, privacy and color, to correcting drainage problems and creating outdoor living areas. Beautiful landscaping increases the value of your home.
