U.S. 167 central parkway
After two-and-a-half years in the making, Ruston got a plan for controlled growth along the U.S. 167 corridor in April.
The Board of Aldermen approved a change in the city’s zoning ordinance that creates a central parkway along either side of U.S. 167 and outlines what can and can’t be built in each of the parkway’s four districts.
The parkway plan encourages controlled commercial development along the highway, while at the same time protecting nearby residential neighborhoods.

DEAR ABBY

Man without one romantic bone in his body irks girlfriend

DEAR ABBY: I am 25 and have been with my boyfriend on and off for five years. I love him very much. I often overthink things, and a constant frustration of mine is that he makes no romantic gestures at all. He drowns me in compliments and shows his love in other ways.
I always have to take the initiative and suggest he do romantic things like send me cards or flowers, take me to dinner, etc., but he only does them when I ask. It doesn’t feel like enough for me.
I worry that when we get married, over time I will grow bored or no longer be attracted to him because he is so unromantic.

Time to stop stubbing the toes of our children
Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

As we prepare to enter a new year, it’s only natural to think about the future.
And in this day and age, as 2019 looms only hours away, it’s easy to consider that future a troubling, if not down outright frightening one.
A volatile stock market with the Fed continuing to raise rates, increasing tariff/trade tensions with China, funding a border wall and a governmental shutdown/showdown — there’s a lot of stress that can be found out there for those who pay attention.
