Jack Pipes arrived at his birthday party in style — riding in a shiny red fire truck.
“It was all right,” he said, as he climbed down from cab of the Ruston Fire Department’s Engine 11.
Pipes, who turns 90 on Wednesday, is RFD’s oldest retiree.
The department, along with Pipes’ family and friends, helped him celebrate the milestone Saturday at Ruston’s Historic Fire Station. Pipes spent part of his 30-plus years with the department working out of the station when it was in active use.
He retired in 1990 at the rank of captain.

Congratulations to Peach Fest’s new royalty

Eight young ladies gathered Saturday afternoon at the Dixie Center for the Arts with hopes of becoming the next Miss Dixie Gem Peach and Miss Spirit of Ruston.

However, only two young ladies would have that privilege as Alexandra Gulino, of Shreveport, was named Miss Dixie Gem Peach 2017 and Meagan Crews, of Bossier City, was crowned as Miss Spirit of Ruston 2017.

Gulino, as well as the rest of the young ladies who graced the stage, worked diligently to be able to compete in the contest which asked them to not only display their beauty, but also their grace.

And we still have Miles to go

Rogers, Randy.jpg

Editor’s note: Years ago, we had to have our Sheltie dog put down. Smartest dog I’ve ever seen. Old Miles. May you rest in peace in doggie heaven.
My oldest son Brian named our new Sheltie after the jazz great Miles Davis. It’s an odd name for a dog I know, but considering he named our other dog, a Chihuahua mix, Tatiana, because he thought she looked Russian; I guess that name makes just as much sense.
Brian brought the little Russian-Mexican doggie princess home as a replacement for our cat Ebony who passed away in 2006.

Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

In my Domestic Abuse Resistance Team columns, I have discussed a wide variety of abuse topics, ranging from bullying to teen dating violence, domestic violence to stalking and elder abuse. These issues are all pertinent to DART, because they reflect a range of abuse which is occurring in families and in our community.
On Aug. 17, professionals in our community will have an opportunity to learn more about abuse in a variety of life stages, at DART’s 16th Annual Collaboration is the Key training event.
