Residents attempting to overtake a school bus either in the city limits of Ruston or in Lincoln Parish will face hefty fines.
James Payton, transportation supervisor for the Lincoln Parish School Board, said bus drivers have a form for when these incidents occur.
“When at all possible we try to make right hand drop-offs,” Payton said. “There are some cases where a child has to cross the street. But when it comes to places like U.S. Highway 167 and Louisiana Highway 33, we may ask the driver to pick up going one direction and to drop off going the other direction.

Veterans Week: How does that sound?

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

This is a few days later than the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the day we remember and celebrated as Veterans Day. Yet folks across our land are still mentioning and remembering the brave. We remembered those who signed a blank check for service to our country, not knowing with certainty what would be inserted.

On Friday I will celebrate six months since my latest surgery, and I’m happy to report that things are going extremely well as I slowly recover from that ankle fusion.

Tech (1-0) went only 26-of-59 from the field but got to the free-throw line 36 times, with 11 of those coming from Alex Hamilton, who led all scorers with 18 points.
