Looking back, having a broken shoe is probably one of the best things to ever happen to Ruston resident Jessica Haynes.
“I had a favorite pair of black heels,” Haynes said. “One day I broke the heel of the shoe and I was devastated. I thought then, wouldn’t it be great if you could just slip on a new heel. I think this is an idea that many women can relate to. When you get a great fitting pair of heels you don’t want to lose them. And being able to match that great pair of heels with multiple outfits is a shoe many women would want. I never gave up that idea of an interchangeable heel.”

This day is the symbol of changing seasons and finds the earth’s axis oriented in a manner, which causes the sun to be located directly over the equator.

Know the symptoms of chronic kidney disease

KAYAL.jpg

It’s a seldom talked-about disease, but 26 million American adults have chronic kidney disease and millions of others are at increased risk.
We have two kidneys, each about the size of your fist. The kidneys are part of your urinary tract and, when functioning properly, perform the vital function of filtering the blood and removing waste and excess salt and water from the body. They also regulate the body's chemical balance, help control blood pressure, make hormones, help keep bones healthy and help make red blood cells.
