Supermarket opens new opportunities

Grambling is no longer a food dessert.
The Legends Supermarket officially opened for business Wednesday, which means Grambling residents will no longer have to travel to receive their basic food necessities and even pharmaceutical needs.
This project has been a long time coming with many Grambling residents waiting patiently to have a supermarket of their own.
To be frank, while the Legends Square development will bring along a hotel and other retailers, the supermarket may be the crowning jewel of it all.

Louisiana’s Bond Commission has approved the city of Ruston’s request to issue $6 million in bonds to pay an improvement project at the North Sewage Treatment rather than taking the money out of the Moving Ruston Forward funds.
The commission met Thursday in Baton Rouge.
