RCT opens ‘Little Mermaid Jr.’

It was all laughter and the loud shuffling of feet and costumes during dress rehearsal for “The Little Mermaid Jr.” Monday evening at the Dixie Center for the Arts.
The sailors in the back of the stage were entertaining themselves with songs from the production while Ariel was getting a microphone check.
It was a scene to behold as area children as young as 5 or 6 got ready to make their theatrical debut.
Once the music was rolling and everyone was in their places, the run through of the production began and it was adorable to watch.

Aldermen saying 'no' may prove messy

in
Bergeron, Nancy.jpg

Ruston’s Board of Aldermen has created a potential mess for itself and possibly for the city.
By a 2-3 vote at its June 4 meeting, the board refused to approve a subdivision plat that met all of the city’s requirements. Nobody remembers such a rejection ever happening before.
Which is why, in the minutes immediately following the meeting, nobody in officialdom would make any comment because nobody knew exactly what to do next.

It was time for to listen to a little light music

in
Randy 2018 2018.jpg

My family was, and still is, full of music lovers. Most of us started at an early age. I’m guessing my big sister Jean was the first one to bring music into our house. She had a little box-shaped monograph record player that had a handle and folded up like an overnight case. I guess that made it easier for her to carry it to teenage sleepovers. Surely, they had electricity by then.
