Expand your family by adopting a pet

Adopting a shelter pet can be one of the most rewarding things you can do. Giving a warm and loving home to an animal in need not only improves the dog’s (or cat’s) quality of life, it will bring joy to your life as well.
One of Ruston’s animal rescue organizations, 4 Paws Rescue Inc., marks its anniversary this week with a celebration and pet adoption event.
If you’ve been considering adding a pet to your family, we encourage you to turn to 4 Paws, the Humane Society or any other area shelters to find your new dog or cat.

Guiding Ruston’s growth is key

Recently, Ruston has seen significant construction, from infrastructure projects like the ongoing I-20 bridge project to additions of subdivisions on both the north and south sides of the city.

Officials represent us well

Aside from the more obvious changes — the Cajun food and music that surrounded me for the past three years have been replaced by country food and music; instead of a Catholic church on every corner there’s a Baptist one — I’ve become aware of the distinct values and priorities of the people who live in rural north Louisiana.

Football is all in Graham family

Football remained Graham’s focus as he moved on to Georgia Tech in 1951. He joined the reigning national champs but would soon head to Florida State. 
“That engineering curriculum at Georgia didn’t quite agree with me,” he laughs.
But the time at Florida State would end up agreeing with son Randy.

Sparta stakeholders look to Arkansas

A similar proposal is in the works in Lincoln and Union parishes in Louisiana. The Lincoln-Union Water Initiative is currently funding water tests on Lake D’Arbonne to check quality and usability. Lake D’Arbonne has a sustainable yield of 200 million gallons per day according to USGS. It is not currently being used as a supply of potable water.
