Union Parish gator hunters join cast of popular reality show

The new breed of “Swamp People” is coming straight out of Union Parish and might just be the next big thing. Marion residents Jeromy Pruitt and David LaDart have been hunting alligators for a long time, but back in September, they were asked to do what they love best on film for the History Channel’s popular show “Swamp People.”
“When Jeromy (Pruitt) asked me to audition with him, I did it because I didn’t think we had a chance,” LaDart said. “I was more than a little surprised when we got the call back.”
LaDart started taking his stepson, Pruitt, alligator hunting when he was just 8 years old.
“I had been doing it a while by then,” LaDart said. “I didn’t have much growing up so I got in it for the money and the meat.”

Hoolan, primary vet assistant at the Ruston Animal Clinic, was named in January as the Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association Support Person of the Year for 2012, much to the delight of veterinarians Marion Sewell and Marilyn Roane, who nominated Hoolan for the honor.

Early blooming trees bring color to landscapes

Hotard, Steven.jpg

Late winter blooming trees always lift the spirit, after a gray, damp winter season. During the past months, we have had many days where there seemed to be no color in the landscape, but recently purple, white and pink blossoms have appeared, bringing a hint of spring to the area. Many years these blooms are damaged by cold temperatures, not this year. The Taiwan Flowering Cherry (Prunus campanulata), Oriental Magnolia (Magnolia X soulangiana) and the Star Magnolia (Magnolia stellata) are waving goodbye to winter by launching an impressive display of flowers.
