The other night we received two inches of rain in my gauge. I could not see any standing around. It all soaked into the ground. About two days later I met a friend/good neighbor coming into a store in Farmerville as I was starting to leave. He stopped me and said, “You remember in one of your news articles you said that you didn’t know what had happened to the ants. You had not seen many this summer. Well I know where they are! They are all over my yard. After the rain, I counted nine anthills!”
There was an unusual of amount energy outside the Dixie Center for the Arts on Friday night, as students waited to go into the Seryn concert being put on by the Wesley Foundation at Louisiana Tech University.
Ever since I have lived in Ruston, students as far as I know have never waited outside of the Dixie for anything.
About six weeks from now, a new era will dawn in Ruston: the Ronny Walker era.
The man who said he has vision for the city and a plan to make that vision a reality, is the man city voters decided they want to lead them for the next four years. Walker’s 60 percent of the vote victory in the Nov. 4 election put him right in line with winning margins racked up by retiring Mayor Dan Hollingsworth in each of his successful election and re-election bids.
