By Hannah Richardson,
lifestyleeditor@natchitochestimes.com

If you told me last Wednesday morning that in a few hours I would be witnessing helicopters shooting feral pigs from above, I would have given you a very sarcastic “yeah, that’s going to happen.”

But lo and behold, I received a call from Brandy Hinds from the Natchitoches Soil and Water Conservation District (NSWCD) letting me know the Feral Swine Control Program was underway in the bottom part of the parish and asked if I wanted to join members of the NSWCD going to check it out.

By Juanice Gray

It’s the first item of clothing they will ever wear.

Sadly, for some, it will also be the last.

“It should be satin and lace and soft and comforting to both the parents and the baby,” said Pam North, owner of Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Angel Gowns. She provides free infant burial gowns to families, hospitals and funeral homes made from donated wedding gowns.

Online property sales will generate revenue

By Carolyn Roy

The City will contract with a company that specializes in getting adjudicated property ready for auction and hopefully generate revenue. The approval of a contract with CivilSource was done by a resolution passed at the council meeting Monday evening.

Some 30 to 40 properties are in City hands because property taxes have not been paid and property has not redeemed by the owners. The number varies because some of the properties have tax liens by both the City and Parish.

Azaleas are blooming all over Natchitoches like at this home on Percy Street. A quick glance at the calendar confirms it is only mid-February, weeks ahead of the average blooming time for azaleas, which is early April according to the LSU AgCenter. Some years, flowering is earlier; some years, flowers come later.
