Bergeron, Nancy.jpg

Every week or so Roderick Goldsmith makes time to go fishing in the pond at Mayfield Park.
“It’s OK, if you can avoid the turtles,” Goldsmith said, after a short Monday morning excursion during which nothing so much as nibbled at the cricket on the end of his line.
There are mostly bass in the pond. Eventually there will be channel catfish big enough to catch and eat now, fingerlings that will grow for later on and maybe rainbow trout.

A chance to be heard

The city of Ruston wants to know how its doing and it’s depending on you, the citizenry, to let it know.

The new survey is part of Mayor Ronny Walker’s continuing effort to engage city residents in their town.

It was a contrast to how the newest Denver Nuggets player left town years ago as a kid — his mom struggling to make ends meet.
That wasn’t lost on the four-time All-Star forward as he was introduced at a recreation center recently after signing a three-year deal worth $90 million. He spent nearly a dozen years in a suburb of Denver before returning to Louisiana for high school at Grambling Laboratory High School and college at Louisiana Tech.

This year we have heard a lot of talk about ethics. We hear mostly about government ethics committees, ethical or unethical people in business, medicine, education, churches. My own definition was a bit limited: An ethical person is honest and of good character. But when thinking about ethics, we also remind ourselves of our morals. They are definitely intertwined but different. I found an interesting article on the internet that I want to share with you.
