I consider coffee to be my love language. I drink a concerning amount of it daily, and if I try to function without it, I am completely useless. It’s an addiction I’ve had since my early teenage years, and as time goes on, it only grows more intense.
Because of my connection to the caffeinated drink, I have an affinity for coffee shops, especially locally-owned ones. If I’m not at home or work, you can most likely find me in one of Ruston’s shops, and when I travel to a new location, the first thing I do is find an interesting place to get a nice cup of a dark roast.

He must have had the 2018 Robert E. Russ and Bill Best Humanitarian Award winners in mind. Because both Kyle McDonald, the Robert E. Russ awardee, and Eddie Barnes, the Best honoree, are leaders who have definitely turned their attitudes and actions into a better reality for Lincoln Parish.
McDonald and Barnes received their respective awards Tuesday during the annual Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce banquet.
