Enjoy the sweet taste of helping

Light, fluffy pancakes are a delicious way to start the morning, which gave two local organizations a great idea — pancake breakfast fundraisers.
On Friday, the Ruston Kiwanis Club will hold its annual Pancake Day. Each year, it provides a morning and evening opportunity for residents to pick up pancakes, sausage and bacon while helping with the various causes Kiwanis focuses on each year.
This event, which is from 6:30-9 a.m. and 4:30-7 p.m. Friday at the Ruston Civic Center, costs $7.
The fundraiser is the only one the Kiwanis Club hosts each year.

Simsboro also made remarkable gains, achieving a 110.5. CHS and SHS are both excellent schools with great administration and competent teachers, and the proof lies in their gains and achievements.

Yes, Halloween has come and gone. No doubt the confection companies are still running totals to see whose sugary treats topped this year’s list. We all have favorites. Some go for chocolate, then there’s the fruit variety, some lean toward mint, others want nuts and on and on.
