Two Ruston natives to perform at the Dixie

010413 Art Talk BW.jpg

When I first got word that Grant Terry was planning a Ruston concert at the Dixie Center for the Performing Arts in 2013, I immediately recalled the time I saw the young artist playing on a summer day in Railroad Park. North Central Louisiana Arts Council presented free concerts in the park with an array of young talent from around the region. Terry was one of those who really stood out while he performed his songs as only a writer can.

Ivan Wilson, Jr. spent portions of last summer participating in All-Star baseball games.
And while an illness — chest congestion, flu-like symptoms — will prevent him from participating, the senior outfielder at Ruston High School has been selected for the Perfect Game USA Baseball World Showcase to be held this weekend in Fort Myers, Fla.
Wilson was one of 100 top-rated prep players from throughout the country chosen for the event which is sanctioned by Major League Baseball and will be held Saturday and Sunday at Terry Park in Fort Myers.

Carter, Bill.jpg

Andy Griffin was credited with disputing the mathematical equation of “pi are square” with a correction of “pie are round, cornbread are square.” Being a Southerner, he should have known better.
“Cornbread are round, brownies are square.” We’re talking iron skillet round.
Cornbread is the ultimate comfort food for me. I like it buttered, chased with a glass of sweet tea or crumbled up in a large glass and drowned in cold butter milk.
Cornbread demands smothering love. You can cover under a blanket of chicken and dumplings or you can plaster with a ladle of thick, brown gravy.

When MTV was not reality

in
Bowman, Molly.jpg

I first realized the world of television was changing when I heard Bowling for Soup’s 2004 song “1985.” The verses that included “when did reality become TV” and “music still on MTV” brought to my attention how much television has changed since I was in elementary school.
Nowadays, there is an overflow of reality televisions shows that fill up most time slots on MTV and other channels like BET and VH1. It seems like anyone with a somewhat interesting life or even a mundane life can score their own show.
