Ruston residents have the opportunity to hear how each of the two mayoral candidates propose to lead the city during a debate set for 7 p.m. Oct. 16 in Howard Auditorium on the Louisiana Tech University campus.
Bill Elmore and Ronny Walker will respond to questions from the business community, as well as the public, during the event hosted by the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce and Tech’s Student Government Association.
“We wanted to do this to help our community have a voice and also to help the community to be more informed,” chamber President Judy Copeland said.
You’ve checked and double checked — and then checked again just to be sure. And all the home pregnancy tests agree: You’re pregnant! Now it’s time for a flurry of phone calls to share the news with family and friends.

Some people drudge through their morning routine mentally preparing themselves for another day of a job they tolerate. Byron Miller, however, is passionate about education.
“I think (education) was something that I felt that I’m naturally gifted towards,” Miller said. “I like teaching. My family sometimes laments that. You can never say something in a short brief way, got to explain everything. My mom was an educator, several of my family members are educators, so I was comfortable and familiar with that. But, I also, always had a positive view of education both in high school and college. Learning is something I enjoy doing, it’s not something that is laborious and something I just want to get done. I really enjoy it. So, it was very natural to pursue that.”
