Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

Recently there has been talk of the Louisiana Legislature attempting to take a law off the books that was deemed by the U.S. Supreme Court as unconstitutional.
On Tuesday, the House killed a bill that would remove Louisiana’s anti-sodomy law.
In an article published by the Associated Press, it stated the bill was brought before the legislature by Rep. Patricia Smith, D-Baton Rouge, who was seeking to remove consensual sex between people of the same sex from Louisiana’s crimes against nature law. The U.S. Supreme Court threw out a similar Texas law a decade ago in Lawrence v. Texas.

Patrons of the Lincoln Parish Library can look forward to some exciting events coming soon.
During the Library Board of Control meeting on Wednesday, Library Director Vivian McCain said that July will make 10 years in their current location.

A motion was made and approved unanimously for July 17 to be a fine-free day for library patrons, if they are wearing a hat.

A taste for change

RHS students visit Capitol to talk cafeteria food

Students from Dustin Whitlock’s political studies class got to see first hand how government is put into action, thanks to Sen. Rick Gallot.
A few weeks ago, Gallot visited Whitlock’s class of sophomore students at Ruston High’s New Tech as part of the “Legislator’s Back to School” program.
Gallot was surprised to hear the student’s tell him how unpleasant they believed the cafeteria food was and, out of all the issues brought up that day, there seemed to be one resounding theme — food in the school cafeteria had room for improvement.
