The home was tastefully reno- vated to meet the needs of the law offices, and a paved parking area added in front of the structure. There are no more busi- ness establishments to the east of the offices of Dr. Benson and Parker Lay- risson as the balance of East Hickory Street con- sists of four blocks of quiet residences. The front yard of the residence immedi- ately east of Dr. Benson’s clinic is graced by a ma- jestic live oak tree that has been designated “The Ponchatoula Oak.” The widespread branches of this huge evergreen tree have shaded this area of Hickory Street for untold generations.

East Hickory Street Premier and see in the distance the rear of the American Legion home. The Legion home location was the for— mer residence of Dr. A. G. Bowman and after renova- tion, his former residence became one of the centers of local social life in our community. The Legion home hosted dances, wed- dings, civic meetings, and other activities beyond the use of the legionnaires. The open space between Hickory Street and the Legion home was a hap— py place each spring for many years in the 1950’s and 1960’s as street fairs were held here during strawberry season.

' Rather than receivmg their benefits during the 1st through 14th of each month, SNAP households will soon receive them be- tween the 1st and 23rd of each month. The new regular sched- ule, which will go into ef- fect in February 2021, will allow for more even stock- ing and staffing at grocery stores and more consistent access to a variety of foods for shoppers, as house- holds typically do their shopping on or shortly af- ter the day their benefits are issued. DCFS also received ap- proval from the US. De- partment of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Ser- vice (FNS) to issue sup- plemental SNAP benefits for December to families not already receiving the maximum allotment for their household. size. The supplemental benefits are scheduled to be loaded onto recipients’ EBT cards on Friday, December 4. In prior months, supple- ments have been issued after regular SNAP ben- efits, but for December, some households will re- ceive their supplement be- fore their regular benefit. The maximum monthly allotments by household size can be found at www. dcfs.la.gov/page/snap-al- lotment-amounts. ‘ New SNAP Schedule Over the next three months, SNAP issuance dates will transition to the new schedule, with no recipient going more than 40 days between monthly issuances, per federal reg- ulations. Recipients who are elderly or disabled will continue to receive their benefits on the lst through the 4th of each month. Other recipients’ issuance dates will shift according to the following schedule: Elderly or Disabled lst-4th lst 1 s t 4t h lst-4th lst-4th 0 5th 1 s t 5th 5th 5th 1 6th 1 s t 6th 7th 7th 2 7th 1 s t 7th 8th 9th 3 8th 1 s t 8th 10th 11th 4' 9th, 1 s t 9th 11th 13th 5 10th 1 s t 10th 13th 15th 6 11th 1 s t . 10th 14th 17th 7 12th 1 s t 10th 16th 19th 8 ‘13th 1 s t 10th 17th 21st 9 14th 1 s t 10th 18th 23rd *The last month 'in which SNAP benefits were issued on the “old sched- ule” was August 2020. Since then, benefits have been issued early, on the lst of each month for Sep- tember, October and No- vember, due to the over- lapping circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic and multiple hurricanes. For example, recipi- ents whose Social Security Number ends in 9, and ' who are not classified as elderly or disabled, will receive their December benefits on Dec. 10, their January benefits on Jan. 18, and their February benefits on Feb. 23. Their regular benefit issuance date will then be the 23rd of each month. SNAP recipients should familiarize themselves with their upcoming issu- ance dates and budget ac- cordingly.
