Choudrant gun raffle aids local fire department

in

nderson has been dreaming of a shiny, new pumper truck for the village’s volunteer fire department for a long time.
But Sanderson, who’s also Choudrant’s mayor, knows the $370,000 truck is way out of the town’s budgetary reach. That’s why he was so intrigued several years ago when he heard about a South Louisiana fire department that was raising money through a gun raffle.
“With that idea in mind, our firefighters sat down and put together a wish list of guns that we would love to get,” Sanderson said.

Gardens benefit area students

Gardening is a favorite past time of many families around the world.
It is a way to get outside and do some work to either make the house have that extra element of uniqueness or to grow food for the family.
Lincoln Parish 4-H Agent Cathy Judd understands this.
In 2010, she began sending master gardeners from the LSU AgCenter to different Lincoln Parish schools to start a school garden.
Judd said the goal of this garden is to teach a more hands-on approach to life science at the schools.
Currently, five area schools participate in this project.

Rescue pets deserve love, too

Amaya, Derek.jpg

I know this girl.
She loves me as much as I love her.
She is a great listener and she is always loyal.
My mother met her in our front yard in New Orleans and she gets along with everybody in the family.
Before she met my family; however, she battled tough times.
But through it all, my family loves her with all our heart and would never look at her differently — even accepting her in the family.
She is my family’s adopted dog, Lola — after the famous song by The Kinks — and she, like many other stray animals, deserves a family, care and love just as much as any pet.

A Ruston man was arrested on three counts of simple burglary, as well as other charges, after an investigation by Ruston Police Department detectives.
Deputy Chief Clint Williams said the arrest came after investigators were able to piece together physical evidence that led them to suspect Reginald Anthony Saulsberry, 47, of 826 Ross St.
“We were able to develop physical evidence that linked Saulsberry to five crimes,” Williams said. “Not all five crimes happened in one night, but over a two to three week period.”
