Downtown Ruston is set to see improvements begin again as the Ruston Board of Aldermen voted unanimously Monday to enter into a contract for construction to begin on Phases III and IV of the Downtown District Revitalization Project.
The city entered into the contract with the lowest of the five bidders, CW&W Construction, at a price of $1,489,185. CW&W was also the construction group who completed Phases I and II of the downtown project.
From today until Sunday, Ruston Community Theatre will present “Annie Get Your Gun,” as the Gale and Lucy Chumley Musical Series for 2012.
The musical, set in the Wild West, is a fictionalized account of sharpshooter Annie Oakley’s traveling days with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and her romance with Frank Butler. Both film adaptations and theatrical revivals of this musical have won various acclaimed awards and received multiple nominations.
