If you’re in the process of filing your 2014 taxes and learn you’re going to be penalized for not having health insurance in 2014, you may qualify for a special enrollment period to obtain coverage for 2015. From today until April 30, the government will open a special enrollment period. By obtaining 2015 coverage before April 30, you may avoid paying a tax penalty in 2015 — and you will have health insurance that will help cover your family in the event of injury or illness.
Ruston Florist and Boutique is moving and will soon offer an elegant display that the city has never seen before.
The business has been open for 32 years, and Dennis and Debbie Allen purchased it in July 1995.

Alabama Ave. On Nov. 1, the doors will open to the new Ruston Florist and Boutique location, which is in the building that formerly housed the Salvation Army at 1103 Farmerville Highway.
