Folino, Frank Fr..jpg

You never know when a current pope will pass on, not to mention when and if one will resign. It’s been a little over a week since Benedict XVI left the Chair of St. Peter vacant, by his own choice.

Author to speak about Camp Ruston at museum

B4-2.jpg

Camp Ruston was located on the property that was once the Ruston State School. This property is seven miles west of Ruston between Grambling and Simsboro. Camp Ruston sprawled over 750 acres and the camp was built in accordance with plans developed by the United States War Department.
The camp had more then 360 buildings and at its peak housed more than 5,000 people. This population included American soldiers and the prisoners of war, and it truly was a small city within itself. The T. L. James Company of Ruston was awarded the construction contract. The total cost was $2,500,000.

Too old for a mountain retreat?

Irby, Marna.jpg

I hope you get this. I’m so mad at my computer, I don’t know what to do. My problem is I know so little about using one, sometimes I just sit down, turn it on and it starts doing crazy things on its own. Is there a computer made just for dummies? If you know of one, please let me know. I’m interested.
