Cypress Springs students Tasnia Bari and Levi Minyard really like to read. So, it seems fitting that the pair walked away with approximately $100 worth of books each last week as a result of the Reading Raffle program at their school.
This Reading Raffle program is a joint project between the Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana (A+PEL) student chapter at Louisiana Tech University and Lincoln ACHIEVE.
Julie Holmes, Tech professor and faculty advisor for A+PEL, said the celebration is held each year at the end of the program.

Lone Wolf has a real name, but because of his volunteer work with Bikers Against Child Abuse, he prefers to use his road name in public.

Riggs thankful for city workers

in

March “went out like a lion” on the north end of Robinette Drive Easter Sunday morning. A twister came through the properties across the street from our house uprooting eight trees and breaking the tops out of two others. One tree took a large corner off one house and another tree destroyed the utility room of another house. One of the large trees fell over Robinette Drive and landed on our property taking down the power line. Of course, the power was out immediately. Within a short time the Ruston Public Works electrical department crew was here sizing up the situation.
