Margaret Thatcher said, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” Not only have we run out of our own money, but we have just about run out of other people’s money.

The first ever Ruston Fashion Week was held recently, and it was, without a doubt, a tremendous success. Set in motion by Kelly Hogan’s inspiration and dedication, the weeklong affair grew out of downtown to include locations across Ruston. The goal was to create various events that would both feature and celebrate this unique and creative community. Over 25 individual events were held as well as many weeklong specials at certain businesses.
