You’ve probably read all the articles that tell you employees want more money, more praise, and more opportunity. And these things are true but there are other things they wish they had too.

Too many people think LinkedIn is solely for finding a job and often overlook the site’s potential. LinkedIn had 380 million users (as of 7/30/2015), with two new users joining per second, on average. Over 110 million users are based in the U.S. If you want to improve your personal brand but not get lost in the crowd, this site is a great place to start.

Livingston Parish has had a shortage of foster families for years. Livingston Parish News reported on the issue in 2011, and in 2014, data from DCFS placed Livingston as one of the Parishes with the highest number of children in state custody. The 2016 flood exacerbated the problem further by displacing families.

With the passing of the two year anniversary of the "Great Flood of 2016," many of us have been reflecting, if only for a moment, where we were then, and where we are now. It is pretty impressive and we know it didn't come without a lot of long days, hard work and digging in.
