The Choudrant Fire Department still has approximately 30 tickets left for their 52-week gun raffle, which began in September.
Overall, only 1,000 tickets were made available, but residents still have time to buy their $100 ticket to win.
As an added bonus, those who buy a ticket will also be helping out the Choudrant Fire Department.
The raffle is not a traditional raffle with only one winner chosen. Tickets have the numbers 000 through 999. On Saturday nights, the ticket number that coincides with that night’s Louisiana Lottery Pick 3 numbers will be the winner.

No, I hadn’t thought about it, even though half of my undergraduate double major is in education. The other half is journalism. But come on, Reg, me? Teach? I’m a reporter. I hadn’t done a lesson plan since, well, in a long time.

Aldermen said both moves help agencies hit by federal and state budget cuts, plus show the city’s support for the agencies’ work.

A year and a half ago Vicki Staples put her scrubs away and picked up her price gun — after 30 years as a nurse, she became the owner of The Avenue Christian Bookstore in Ruston.
Throughout her time as a nurse, Staples said she went from private practice nursing to nursing at North Louisiana Medical Center.
“For the 30 years that I was in nursing, I spent time in private practice and then at (NLMC),” Staples said. “I was part of the medical/surgical unit.”
Staples said she chose the retail business because it would give her fulfillment and the change she needed.
