But for those who spent much of your Fourth of July weekend outdoors, you probably took notice.
The weather was incredible.
It was rather hot and sticky during Peach Fest weekend, nothing new for Ruston. We’re used to watching temperatures climb near or over the 100 degree mark this time of year, and the Sunday night after Peach Fest it felt like you could swim through the air with the humidity being so thick.
A long time ago in a city not too far from Ruston, a boy popped in a VHS tape that forever changed his life.
From its opening scene — a spaceship hovers over your head preceded by a yellow scroll of back story — to its epic plot twist that finishes off with a climatic conclusion, the Star Wars film series captivated a deep rooted love in my heart.
For those who have been living under a rock the past four decades, Star Wars is a tale about the Skywalker family tree and their role in balancing the force, an energy field that connects all living things in the galaxy.
