According to the Centers for Disease Control, and local observation, flu and cold season are in full swing. And, unfortunately, here in Louisiana is one of the hot spots for influenza-like illnesses.
People have already begun to miss work and school in our area, and residents need to be careful to take care of themselves now so they have the best chance of preventing catching the flu or cold viruses.
With a cold front coming in, it might seem like it’s far too early to start thinking about the sweet, juicy peaches that have tantalized Ruston — and made it a summertime tourist destination for many — for more than 60 years.
But, the Louisiana Peach Festival is a serious undertaking that requires a great deal of forward thinking. And, right now, the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce is looking for the perfect design to adorn the coveted Peach Festival T-shirts and posters.
