Paying tribute to a good father

in
Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

Father’s Day is this Sunday and in honor of this occasion, I wanted to write a column about the role of fathers in preventing domestic violence.

061316 CCA C.jpg

The members of Ruston Rotary contributed $400 to support Lincoln Rotary’s summer food drive for CCA.

Last week, more than 200 cans were contributed at Super 1 alone, but CCA needs much more to get through the Summer.
