We are in the middle of football season, especially in Louisiana and Alabama. The Saints aren’t doing badly. Most loyal fans are steeled and accustomed to collapses of the past. Yet for those without a myopic view of the world of sports, there are other sports. For example, the professional baseball season just ended last Friday night. And what a stirring experience of a wonderful and wholesome sport. Yes, as with others, there can be blemishes here and there, yet baseball still involves, attracts and encourages millions.
North Central Louisiana Arts Council is seeking visual and literary artists for this year’s Holiday Arts Tour. On Monday, applications will be available for those merchants and artists who wish to participate in this year’s event. Holiday Arts Tour is NCLAC’s annual celebration of the arts, when visual artists, writers and performers set up shop in downtown Ruston.
The public is invited to this free event to see demonstrations, hear fabulous music, speak with makers about their processes and to shop unique, handmade and local with our regional artists.
I lost my brother in 2012. Well, I didn’t really lose him, not like losing my car at the mall parking lot or anything. No, he passed away.
