While Halloween has the tendency to be a favorite holiday for many, there are still many ways that a fun-filled night can go awry.
Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone urges residents to “Know Before You Go,” an initiative to inform parents of sex offenders in their area.
“We do our best to ensure sex offenders live where they tell us, but it is up to our citizens to utilize online tools to see who the registered sex offenders are and where they are living,” Stone said.
Here in Ruston, blindness, or at least blind people, is something we experience every day. However, to promote awareness Mayor Dan Hollingsworth issued a proclamation declaring October as Meet the Blind Month.
And to further Hollingsworth’s proclamation, the Louisiana Center for the Blind is hosting a variety of events to help educate the public.
The center is joining forces with Christian Community Action by collecting nonperishable food to support CCA’s Poor Man’s Supper set for Tuesday.
