It’s an American Tradition: Shop on Small Business Saturday

By Small Business Administration District Director Michael Ricks
As we begin the holiday shopping season, let’s recommit to honoring our neighborhood champions, Louisiana’s small retailers and neighborhood eateries. As the voice for our nation’s entrepreneurs, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) celebrates small businesses on a daily basis. When our small businesses do well, our communities do too.

Ministry seeks caps for children

By Randy Miller
In the rural villages of Guatemala the needs of the children are very great.
I work with the Animal Project of Mission Housing Ministries Inc. While serving in that capacity I have learned of many needs of these people. One of the needs is keeping the children warm during the night and early mornings. As part of a team that brought beanie caps, I quickly saw the need for more beanies than we had brought. It is because of that need I have set a goal of 1,000 beanie caps collected before I return in January.
