There’s a white fiberglass bulldog on the loose in Ruston that needs an artist to give him a special look.
Actually, Bulldog No. 11, aka “The Bonus Bulldog,” is safely in the care of city officials. But he still needs a paint job.
The bonus bulldog is the newest addition to the Ruston Cultural District’s Bulldog Project, a program through which local artists were commissioned to paint 10 3-foot-tall bulldog statues that are now placed in various locations throughout the city.

Student honored for raising funds, awareness for disability

It was during a class trip to Washington, D.C., in 2015 that Cedar Creek School student Kate Walker and her family fully realized something was wrong.
After failing to keep up with her friends, bumping into people and feeling like her feet “were going to fall off my body,” Kate began a series of doctor visits that concluded with a rare diagnosis: a degenerative neuromuscular disorder known as Friedreich’s ataxia (FA).

While February is filled with giant pink hearts held by adorably cute stuffed bears that scream “I Love You,” it is also a month that is designated as Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.
Parents of high schoolers are constantly concerned about grades, friends, drugs and teenage pregnancy. But few are armed with the knowledge that one in every three girls is being abused (emotionally, verbally or physically) by their boyfriend.
In fact, one in every 10 high schoolers (both boys and girls polled) report that they have been hit, slapped or physically hurt by their dating partner.
