The Thanksgiving holiday period is traditionally one of the busiest travel times of the year.
During the 2014 Thanksgiving holiday week, Louisiana highways saw 424 fatal and injury crashes resulting in 12 deaths and 710 injuries. In an effort to reduce the number of traffic fatalities during America’s most popular travel holiday, troopers will be working alongside local law enforcement partners participating in the Click it or Ticket campaign.
The former Lincoln High School football coach became the first African American to lead Ruston High School’s football team 40 years ago this year.

Following the reception, Smith will be presented a plaque during halftime of RHS vs. Neville High School football game at 7 p.m. Friday at L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium.
The Lincoln Parish Police Jury’s recent decision against granting two businesses the local sales tax rebate with their participation in the state’s tax rebate program sends the wrong message. The Enterprise Zone Program is intended to reward businesses for their investment in our community.
