Cypress Springs Elementary has been very busy with several activities recently. Parents were invited to eat Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner with their students.
Immediately following the holidays, we celebrated Rock and Roll Day by dressing up in 50s attire and having our first ever “Sock Hop.” Students really enjoyed getting to share their 50’s moves at the sock hop.
Louisiana Tech may be out for winter break, but workers demolishing the Caruthers Dormitory building were hard at it Saturday as their work continued. Pictured in the foreground is a worker cleaning dust and small debris off of Tech Drive as the demolition process continued. Plans are to leave the area that once contained Caruthers and Neilson Dorms as a green space.
About 500 Ruston power customers were without power this morning for about 30 minutes beginning at 10:16 a.m.
Darrell Caraway, public utilities manager for the city, said a business hosting a grand opening ceremony caused the power outage.
“They had a bunch of those aluminum balloons get away from them and they were tangled in the power lines,” he said. “The outage was centrally located to the downtown area of Ruston.”
Caraway added that everything has been fixed and all electricity should be back on.
“We have taken down those lines, repaired them and put them back up,” he said.
