That day is still affecting many, including churches and their pastors. And it’s leading communities to prepare, just in case.

We’ve already seen many communities like Vernon Parish and Grant Parish take part in this movement. On Tuesday night, Rapides Parish followed suit.

Local pastors and law enforcement gathered at Homewood Baptist Church to discuss how they want to assure safety in churches.

Sheriff William Earl Hilton said he believes in the run, hide, fight method.

“So we need to protect everyone that is in the church,” said Sheriff Hilton. “And let us do our job. Homeland Security, FEMA, everybody that deals with these kind of issues, they

Kelsey Grammer: ‘I dread meeting my sister’s killer’

At 13, his estranged father Frank Allen Grammer was murdered – shot by a psychopath. And at 25 his two young half-brothers, Stephen and Billy, died in a scuba-diving accident.

The actor rose to fame in 1984 when he began playing psychiatrist Frasier Crane on NBC’s Cheers and went on to star in 11 series of offshoot Frasier. He has won 37 Emmys, a Tony and three Golden Globes.

He is currently in London’s West End show Big Fish: The Musical. His song choices included Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon and Jimi Hendrix’s All Along The Watchtower.

His book of choice was A Passage To India by EM Forster and a magnifying glass was his luxury item.

Desert Island Discs, today, Radio 4, 11.15am.

Opinion: Opioids, a mass killer we’re meeting with a shrug

About as many Americans are expected to die this year of drug overdoses as died in the Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined.

For more than 100 years, death rates have been dropping for Americans — but now, because of opioids, death rates are rising again. We as a nation are going backward, and drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50.

“There’s no question that there’s an epidemic and that this is a national public health emergency,” Dr. Leana Wen, the health commissioner of Baltimore, told me. “The number of people overdosing is skyrocketing, and we have no indication that we’ve reached the peak.”

Yet our efforts to address this scourge are pathetic.

We responded to World War II with the storming of Normandy, and to Sputnik with our moon shot. Yet we answer this current national menace with … a Republican plan for health care that would

We responded to World War II with the storming of Normandy, and to Sputnik with our moon shot. Yet we answer this current national menace with … a Republican plan for health care that would deprive millions of insurance and lead to even more deaths!

It’s bizarre that Republicans should be complacent about opioids because the toll is disproportionately in red states.

Mary Taylor, the Republican lieutenant governor of Ohio and now a candidate for governor, has acknowledged that

Column: Opioids, a mass killer we’re meeting with a shrug

About as many Americans are expected to die this year of drug overdoses as died in the Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined.
