Saying ‘I Do’ and Enjoying It Too

(NewsUSA) - For many brides, the quest to plan the perfect day can quickly turn into a nightmare trip down the aisle. Here are a few tips to keep your wedding day bliss from turning into the honeymoon blues.

* Marriage Planning 101: Once the ring goes on, the race to plan the perfect wedding begins, giving couples little time to think about the marriage itself or how their wedding spending decisions could affect their future. But smart couples are now setting aside time to address pre-wedding issues such as what they will do when it comes to financial planning, spending money, raising children and family politics.

With nearly half of all newlyweds taking on debt to finance their "big day," couples should take every opportunity to make their wedding-related and everyday spending count toward their future.

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.
