Parish rings in new year quietly

“This is something that we plan on doing periodically throughout the year,” Sheriff Mike Stone said. “Due to some of the fatalities we’ve had in the parish in the past couple of months, we want to make sure people drive more carefully.”

2007 brings new goals for residents

Shelley Franklin, a Winnsboro native, is hopeful she can be a good mother to her 8-month-old baby girl. The new mom, who is in Ruston for the holidays visiting relatives, said she will try to be patient and loving and make time for play.
“I will play with (my baby) as much as I can and enjoy it because she’s growing up really fast,” Franklin said. “I want to be the best mommy I can be.”
