Hillburn, Chet.jpg

Bootsie (Wiley Hilburn Jr.) was my older brother and even though more than seven years separated our ages we were alike in many respects and different in a just a few. For instance we both had the same oddities — no sense of direction, not good with computers, misplacing things, losing our cars in a parking lot, wrecking our cars, and drinking too much in our early years. We were also both journalists and writers, beginning our careers at age 16 for the Ruston Daily Leader.

Darden, Jessica mug.jpg

Day after day there are men and women on the streets of Ruston and Lincoln Parish who provide a service to residents.
Those individuals go above and beyond what we as residents perceive their duty to be. Officers and deputies alike take a personal interest in the safety of their community members. This isn’t just our home and people we know and care about — this is the home of our local law enforcement as well. They want it to be a safe place for their families, as well as the rest of us.

We are all just people first

Causey, Caleb mug.jpg

Last summer, I met a man named Patrick. He was an extremely nice guy and kept to himself. He never bothered anyone and spent his free time playing games with his friends and doing what made him happy.
Patrick is just a normal person. However, quite a large chunk of our society does not agree with that, simply because Patrick has Down syndrome.
Down syndrome is a chromosome abnormality that affects one in every 691 people born, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Patrick does not care that he has Down syndrome, so why do you?

Hundred of locals came out Tuesday to show their support for Grambling State University and for the new Distinguished Leadership Award recipients.
GSU President Frank Pogue opened the third annual luncheon by saying everyone was present to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
“Grambling State University is committed to the tenets of diversity and civility,” he said. “We are pausing to recognize Dr. King. Dr. King taught us to honor peace, humanity and kindness. He championed civility, fairness, tolerance and civic responsibility.”

Pogue also had a grand announcement for those in attendance — the official naming of the new GSU Fighting Tiger.
The 13-foot tiger statue was erected in late 2013, and Pogue said he had never seen such a thing.
“I had never seen students and other people so eager to take a photo with something before it was even put up,” he said. “We had 150 students enter the naming competition. Of those students we narrowed it down to the Top 10.”
Pogue said from there students voted on what the official name of the Fighting Tiger would be.
