Hurricane Season to Reach Peak in the Coming Weeks

The sleeping giant may be about to awaken.

Hurricane activity in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico is forecast to ramp up over the next couple of weeks. “Weather models have flipped the switch on the Atlantic hurricane season and see multiple areas of development possible starting mainly this weekend,” weather.us meteorologist Ryan Maue said.

One storm could spin up in the Caribbean over the next couple of days and potentially affect Florida over the Labor Day weekend. Looking further ahead, “there is the potential for two or three tropical features spinning over the Atlantic by the second weekend in September,” AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said.

Choosing Between Homelessness and Abuse

By Stacey Rachel

It’s estimated that 1 in 4 women in the U.S. will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. While the public often wonders why women don’t leave abusive partners, the answer can often be as simple as “And where would they go?” Domestic violence is the third leading cause of homelessness among families nationwide, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“Families that become homeless due to domestic violence often face challenges that other homeless populations may not have to confront,” said Trena Pruitt, DART’s Shelter Manager. “They may require critical safety measures, such as a confidential location, and it’s likely they will need trauma support. There is also the unfortunate reality that people sometimes stay with an abuser because they don’t have access to the money they need to get them into a safer situation.”

Sheriff Jordan Speaks to Kiwanis Club

Sheriff Cranford Joran

Sheriff Cranford Jordan was guest speaker for the August 27th Kiwanis club meeting. The sheriff gave each member a list of common scams and frauds. Some of the ones seen around here include ticket scams (selling tickets for something they don’t have), grandparent scams and the IRS scams. The IRS only contacts people through the mail not on the telephone. There are many scams out there. Be careful who you give your information to and never put money on a card to send somewhere.

The main focus of Sheriff Jordan’s talk was the new jail. Hopefully, they will be in the new jail by the end of September. They were supposed to be finished in March but had weather delays. He passed around pictures of the various areas that he talked about.

Kids World Whipping Up Healthy Dishes

Shannan Chevallier of the LSU AgCenter and her daughter, Gracelyn Chevallier, a 4-H junior leader, partnered this summer with Kids World to host “Kids in the Kitchen” cooking classes. There were 30-35 students who participated in this fun event. Kids were introduced to the tools and rules we use in the kitchen and the role that each of them play in order to prepare a delicious dish. Each day, the kids were broken into small groups where they were given a recipe to prepare. Upon completing our dishes, we discussed what food groups we were partaking of from “My Plate”. We then determined if our meal was balanced.

The American Red Cross were our guest speakers for Thursday. They talked to the students about the importance of having a plan of action in place in case of disaster.
