Legends Project helps Grambling

Patience is a virtue and the citizens of Grambling have been patiently waiting for the Legends Square Project to come to fruition.

Grambling Mayor Ed Jones announced construction on the Legends Square Project will begin within the next 60 days.

Legends Square, a nine-acre area of development off Interstate 20, has been in the works for several years now.

“We announced the approval of about 50 percent of the Grambling Square Project,” he said during the October Town Council meeting.

Making memories in Middle America

DardenJessica101515.jpg

Recent travels have made it abundantly clear that there aren’t many places like Ruston.
On the last day of September, I loaded down my Jeep with two sleepy-eyed little boys and set off on a 12-hour trip to see my husband, Slade.
Before you say I’m crazy — I was well prepared for the trip. I had my oil changed and car checked out in the days prior. My Jeep was also packed full of snacks, games and movies for the kids to watch.

Giving back to the animals

in

Considering the loyalty and devotion of animals to the human race, how can we as a society allow them to be destroyed like some unwanted trash? There needs to be a refuge for abandoned, neglected and abused animals in Ruston and Lincoln Parish. Euthanasia by animal control personnel or allowing these animals to die from neglect or abuse is no way to show our appreciation to the wonderful animals that bless so many human lives. When family and friends abandon us, our pets sustain us.

Appreciating pastors of Faith Church

in

October is Pastor Appreciation Month, and our church wanted to acknowledge our pastors, Stan and Mary Pody for going above and beyond what is expected for their congregation. To them, Faith Church — Ruston is not just a place to go on any given Sunday or Wednesday, but it is a family that stands together.
Pastor Stan was raised in Ruston, and his father, Elton Pody, was the mayor of Ruston for eight years, so a love for Ruston and its people is in his blood. He has had an evangelical music ministry for many years, but his heart is for the people in this region.

What can be done in government?

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

During this political season, I have felt amazingly “wonderful” about  “how much confidence” I have in government in general and certain  persons in particular. This makes me wonder if you  have the same “high level of confidence” and if you think, as do I, can anything be done about it?

School has started and we are settling in for the 15th year of Bethel Christian School. Our faculty has been expanded by one new teacher this school year. We welcome Ms. Hiedi Denham. Ms. Denham is teaching third through 6th grade Bible, spelling, and P.E. She also teaches fifth and sixth grade science.
Our seventh through 12th graders went to Celebrity Theaters and saw “War Room.” The movie inspired our students to start a Prayer Warrior Club which meets each morning for Bible reading, prayer request and praying.

Failure can be your teacher or your tombstone

in
Moore, Byron 2015.jpg

Question: I was involved in a business start up a few years back that failed. Some of it was timing; some of it was clearly my fault. How likely is it that I could ever succeed in my own business if I’ve already failed once?
Answer: I wish you could talk to Tom.
Tom’s life was full of failures. His head was full of ideas he thought would change the world. But often when he tried them out, he failed. This went on for years.
The good news for Tom was that failure was not final, he had his share of successes. But the path to success inevitably went through, not around, failure.
