Anyone who drives through downtown Ruston can’t help but notice the abundance of construction taking place.
At this time, there are three separate projects in the works — one by the city of Ruston and two overseen by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development.
A breakdown of projects and associated costs is as follows:
Things are off to a great start in preschool. We’re going into our third week here at school.
Over these past weeks, the students have been learning about their new school, learning the routines and rules of the classroom. There are big plans for my students this school year; field trips, parades and programs just to name a few. The students are excited and eager to learn.
Although Christmas break is quickly approaching for area school children, adults are not so lucky. Most places of business only allot for three days of holiday vacation — Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Years Day — to stay home and enjoy time with family and friends. Yet, in an effort to help keep the kids entertained while adults are still at work, the North Central Louisiana Arts Council is offering four, one-day workshops during this time.
Ticket sales continue through Monday for the annual Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce Awards Gala set for Tuesday at the Ruston Civic Center. The event begins at 6 p.m. with a wine-and-cheese social, followed at 6:45 by a seated dinner.
Tickets are $35 each for chamber members and $40 each for non-members. Reserved tables of six are available for $250 for members and $275 for non-members. Reserved sponsored tables of six are $500. This year’s gala is sponsored by Community Trust Bank.
