Ruston resident Mallory Hilton accumulated only five weeks of memories of her 4-year-old son, Mason, before the images of St. Jude Hospital began to be intermingled with them. But Hilton is extremely glad that those images of St. Jude exist.
Mason returned Dec. 20 from his latest checkup at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and “everything was good,” Hilton reports. “We’ll go back next December, and if everything is fine, they’ll transfer him to after-treatment care.”

Marine evaluates role of women

in

I do understand Mr. (Lou) Barber’s sentiment about women in the military. I also understand his feelings towards women in general. After all, he is from the generation that witnessed two world wars, the Korean conflict and the Vietnam debacle.
