Louisiana native explores passion for cooking

1.jpg

When traveling through Ruston, one is sure to find an array of all kinds of foods to eat. The menu may not be as grandiose as one a New Orleans or a Dallas-sized town would have, but for a college town full of plenty of loyal community members, there are a few places where appetites of all shapes and sizes can be fulfilled.
Area residents looking for a little more variety, creativity and freshness have been in luck over the past few months, as 102 A Bistro has been hard at work changing their menu and their product. This change is all thanks to the restaurant’s new chef, Ryan Spruhan, who has been working since July to find better, local products to serve in his dishes at 102.

Irby, Marna.jpg

How about this weather? Ours is fabulous — not too hot, not too cold, but just right!
This is a great week for me. Lots going on.
Starting on Saturday night, we had a great family time and all the pizza you could eat. We even had Harold and Becky (my daughter) here from Ruston. Piloting a plane is one of Harold’s hobbies, so on Saturday morning, they surprised us with a visit.

Student charged in hit-and-run

in

A 22-year-old Louisiana Tech University student was charged with hit-and-run driving Oct. 28 in the case where a female student was hit in a campus pedestrian crosswalk.
 Brittain Travis White, a junior electrical engineering major, reportedly told police that he was involved in the incident that occurred about 7:20 p.m. Oct. 26 in the crosswalk near Mitchell Hall.
 As the victim was crossing the road to go to the Unity Step Show, part of the Homecoming Week festivities, she was sideswiped by a car, police said.
 A Tech police officer saw the accident and rendered aid to the student while White left the scene, police said.
The student reportedly suffered several broken ribs and a punctured lung, and she is now recovering in a Shreveport hospital.
Police have not released the victim’s name.
Tech Police sent out notifications last week describing the suspected vehicle, a 1996 or ’97 Mazda Millenia, to law enforcement in surrounding cities as well as to students.
White turned himself in to Tech police about 2 a.m. Oct. 28.
According to the police report, White said he was going to the step show in his 1999 Mazda Millenia and was running late to pick up a friend.
