Lend a hand this holiday season

in
Degrie, Elizabeth 8-13 NEW.jpg

I’m not going to lie. Sometime around early to mid-November, I start to wake up with a spring in my step.
For a few months at the end of each year, the air becomes cooler, the world lights up with holiday decorations and my favorite holiday tunes start sneaking their way onto radio stations. Once December hits, Christmas movies — the ones I’ve always loved the best — take over the television set, and something pleasant always seems to be cooking in the kitchen.

When purchasing items, many have heard people say always buy products that are made in the United States, and while this may seem hard at times, two local residents opened a shop in downtown Ruston for this purpose.
Cassidy Kyme and Jake Dugard held an opening reception for Makers Union recently. The shop features pieces made by both Kyme and Dugard, as well as other items that are made in the U.S.
“We’ve both always worked with our hands and we’ve always wanted to collaborate that work,” Kyme said. “It has always been a dream of ours.”

Don’t stress this holiday season

For many, last week’s Thanksgiving festivities heralded in the joy of the holiday season.
Unfortunately, for others, it also marked the beginning of the most stressful time of the year. The holiday season is filled with family celebrations, the search for the perfect gift and long days at work to make up for missed time. All of that often leaves little room for residents to find much needed down time. All of that is simply added to the normal list of worries from the rest of the year.

Show compassion by helping others

Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

Andy Griffith would be proud.
One of the most amazing things for me about living in Ruston and Lincoln Parish is the sense of community and camaraderie here.
Not only are people here friendly, always stopping to say hello and ask about friends and family — here they are more than willing to go out of their way to lend a helping hand to those in need.
Case in point: Last week my wife asked friends if anyone had a trailer we could use to move a swing set and some playground equipment to our backyard.
Enter Lincoln Parish Assessor Sheila Bordelon and her son David Andrew.
