Photography is commonly defined as the process of obtaining a permanent image of an object, either in black and white or in color. But for Luling’s Charles Owcarz, capturing a moment in time is larger than just simple mechanics - it’s the desire and ambition to document the interesting things he sees in the world around him.

March 26, 2008 at 1:49 pm
To the editor:
I am writing in response to the article that appeared in last week's issue of your newspaper. Unfortunately, the attention-grabbing headline does not reflect the content of the article.

|Finance Dept. didn’t read auditor’s letter
March 26, 2008 at 1:48 pm
To the Editor:
On the issue of possible financial improprieties in the use of public funds (the fire stations receive a great percentage of their income from tax dollars), I find it extraordinary that the Finance Dept. of St. Charles Parish (who, it appears, is supposed to review audits of the fire stations) did not even bother to read the auditor's letter which accompanied the audit. This is a very important part of the audit. SCP itself had withheld payment to the fire station for many months following information that the auditor could not prepare the audit because information was being withheld.
