Anyway — good news first: Great grandbaby Sydney finally got well, plus walked alone and it was to her grandfather, Harold Henderson, who was here with wife Becky, visiting for Labor Day weekend with daughter Susan and son-in-law Jonathan and the baby. His brother Mark and wife Lynda, their daughter Michelle, all former Rustonites, and Michelle’s husband Brad and little son Max were also here from Oklahoma.

Slaughter, Jessica NEW.jpg

Serving the region through the North Central Louisiana Arts Council, I have the privilege each day of working inside the Dixie Center for the Arts.

The space is truly a hub for community arts activities. The NCLAC office is located inside, of course, and several other nonprofits use the space for their activities as well: Ruston Civic Symphony Society, Ruston Community Theatre, Troupe Dixie and the Dixie Center for the Arts itself.

Lincoln Parish ready if disaster strikes

Don’t let your guard down just yet. Even though we’re halfway through the 2013 hurricane season and haven’t had a hurricane, it’s still a bit too early to breathe a sigh of relief.
If you live in Louisiana, even in North Louisiana, hurricane preparedness can be a true lifesaver. Representatives of local and state agencies, law enforcement, volunteer groups and the American Red Cross, gathered in Ruston recently to review disaster shelter plans, should a storm occur and drive evacuees to Lincoln Parish. Their conclusion — Ruston and Lincoln Parish are ready.
