Thanksgiving lethargy not from turkey

in

With all of the Ruston Parks and Recreation fall sports wrapped up, let’s talk turkey. Let’s give thanks on Thanksgiving for its cornucopia of foods that are consumed on that day: stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potato pie, hot rolls, cream corn and of course, turkey, among other delights. Tomorrow, friends and family in the United States travel hundreds of miles to gather and gorge in a celebration tracing back to 1621.

Potter still offers magical escape

in

The familiar strain of music accompanying the pan of a cloudy sky combined to give me a warm, fuzzy feeling on Friday night. The latest and penultimate installment of the films featuring the world’s favorite boy wizard hit the screens last week, and theaters filled with fans young and old. Even the theater here in Ruston had only the undesirable seats left open 20 minutes before show time.
