Motorists need be on lookout for cyclists

During a “Critical Mass” event in November, area cyclists tried to raise awareness of the biking community in Ruston.
Several cyclists have been injured in the area in the last few years, and the general consensus of the Critical Mass participants was that many drivers are not considerate of cyclists.
There is no doubt that the biking community is growing considerably in Ruston, with the presence of a bicycle shop and also the savings of cycling in light of the high gas prices.

Snubbing 2012 resolutions

in
ELIZABETH.jpg

Many movies, television shows and popular songs through the years have regaled us with how precious every moment should be, popularly depicted as the question “What would you do if you only had an hour/day/week to live?”
Writers have spun tales of love, loss and self-fulfillment around this concept. They often do so by actually showing some unhappy person embracing life as they live what little bit they have left. But, I often think they’re forgetting something about humans. Many of us expend a great deal of energy to end bad habits (smoking, overeating, overworking, bad relationships) so that we can live better lives.

Know thyself — it can't be done

Perry, Owen.jpg

Have you ever, out of a clear blue sky and without warning, had the lyrics of an old song you hadn’t sung in years suddenly pop up in your mind? Or memories of some incident that happened many moons ago come bubbling, perhaps from out of the deepest recesses of your psyche or inner self?

Construction in works for MLK, Lewis St.

in
2 Work.jpg

Some big changes are on the horizon for South Ruston, and others are already in progress.
The long-term plan for the city is to extend Martin Luther King Drive from where it currently dead-ends just west of Farmerville Street, so that it will eventually connect with U.S. Highway 167.
City Construction Projects Supervisor John Freeman said once the city acquires the last portion of right-of-way to complete the project, which he hopes will be in January, officials will aggressively pursue state and federal funding options for the $1.8 million project.

Donation — gift of love

Mother’s paintings given to museum
122311 Museum 1 bw.jpg

The paintings by DeCinter Caraway Farley represent her life growing up on her family’s farm in Claiborne Parish.
“They represent what farm life was like during her time,” Emory said. “They are an asset to the museum because they represent how people lived and survived back then. Claiborne Parish was very similar to Lincoln Parish back then in the way of life that our early pioneers lived.”
Emory added the donation was a gift of love.

Staying up-to-date on horticulture information

in
Maki, Ken.jpg

One of the things I like about the horticulture field is that you must continue to look and see what is going on.
The problems change, and the people come up with something different. My youngest daughter lives in Monroe and even after my 60 years of working something different can come up.
The other day she called and asked, “What are the long white skinny worms that are on my patio? They are all over it. Could they be coming from our big dog that lives on it? Some of the worms are eight to 10 inches long.”
