LPJ announces plans for summer expansion

By Judith Roberts, publisher

Summer is so close we can taste it — literally, since the humidity in Louisiana is already ridiculous. But fear not — while we can’t control the weather at LPJ, we can bring you some new stories and new formats that will hopefully keep your mind off the upward creeping temperatures.

First off, we are bringing in some new writers this summer, some of which you already have seen. We have our new columnist, Sallie Rose Hollis, who started writing for us this spring, and my husband, Kyle Roberts, will debut his column this summer. Whether you’re looking for a spiritual message in Sallie’s columns or the newest foods to create with Kyle’s “Hot Grill Summer,” these are just a couple of new names you’ll see popping up on bylines in the upcoming months.

Secondly, we have some new series we’re bringing in for this summer. One of the reasons I became involved in this publication is because of my desire to highlight all the good there is in our parish — and there’s so much to cover. We want to highlight our first responders, our hospital workers, our teachers and university faculty, and more. We can’t wait to start rolling out these stories starting Memorial Day.

And, lastly (for now), we are so thrilled to offer a podcast this summer. That’s right, once a week, we will sit down with some of the well-known names in this town to talk about what’s going on in Lincoln Parish. Be on the lookout for that announcement coming Memorial Day week as well.

It’s going to be an amazing summer, one that we can’t wait to share with you.
