FARMERVILLE — The employment future of a man hired as a policeman by the Bernice Board of Aldermen ended before he started work with his arrest on domestic violence charges.

The Dixie Center for the Arts has joined in the fight to raise funds for a new hall for VFW Parnell Burt Post 3615 by sponsoring a benefit concert from 6-9 a.m. Saturday.
After 80 years of service and due to the fact that no rebar was used to construct the foundation of the current hall, located at 200 Memorial Dr., the foundation there has large cracks throughout and has become so uneven that walls are cracking and separating on both the inside and outside and the roof has also become uneven and has many leaks.

Pond project offers relief in 'food desert'

Bergeron, Nancy.jpg

Every week or so Roderick Goldsmith makes time to go fishing in the pond at Mayfield Park.
“It’s OK, if you can avoid the turtles,” Goldsmith said, after a short Monday morning excursion during which nothing so much as nibbled at the cricket on the end of his line.
There are mostly bass in the pond. Eventually there will be channel catfish big enough to catch and eat now, fingerlings that will grow for later on and maybe rainbow trout.
But things at the popular southwest Ruston community fishing hole are getting worse in order to get better.

A chance to be heard

The city of Ruston wants to know how its doing and it’s depending on you, the citizenry, to let it know.
Between now and Aug. 22, residents can go online — or request a paper copy, if they prefer — and take a short, 19-question public opinion survey that asks about government, downtown, and quality of life issues like recycling and talking a walk or a bicycle ride.
The new survey is part of Mayor Ronny Walker’s continuing effort to engage city residents in their town.

DENVER (AP) — Paul Millsap was welcomed back to his old neighborhood with a reception that included a drum line and cheering children.
It was a contrast to how the newest Denver Nuggets player left town years ago as a kid — his mom struggling to make ends meet.
That wasn’t lost on the four-time All-Star forward as he was introduced at a recreation center recently after signing a three-year deal worth $90 million. He spent nearly a dozen years in a suburb of Denver before returning to Louisiana for high school at Grambling Laboratory High School and college at Louisiana Tech.
