Kindergarten
Kindergarten enjoyed “’50s Day” as we celebrated the 50th day of school. We counted, rocked to music, made root beer floats and of course dressed in ’50s attire! A big thanks goes to Blue Bell for providing ice cream scoops for the floats. Fall has been busy at Glen View as we have learned all about life on the farm at Papa Simpson’s Farm. It was so much fun feeding the animals and of course picking our own pumpkin.

New Tech @ Ruston Director Cathi Cox-Boniol recently participated in the 2011 CAREER Award Regional Forum in Baton Rouge. Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the LSU Office of Research and Economic Development and the LSU Gordon A.

Brighten holidays for less fortunate

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, which means most of us have at least a few lists in our heads of presents we’d like to buy for others and even a few we’d like to see with our own name under the tree.
The desire to give presents and see a smile on a loved one’s face is something almost everyone feels. Unfortunately, approximately 200 Lincoln Parish families — because of financial reasons — will have a little bit of trouble bringing that Christmas cheer into their homes this year.

Mayor comments on alcohol sales

in

For years, local business leaders and the city of Ruston have received requests from many citizens as well as local businesses for consideration of restaurant alcohol sales on Sundays.
Recently these requests have evolved into formal endorsements by the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of commerce, the Ruston-Lincoln Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau and the local restaurant association supporting this limited change in our alcohol regulations. These endorsements were subsequently forwarded to the city of Ruston for formal consideration.

The Anders-Slaton families wish to express our thanks to those of you who through God have given us strength, encouragement and comfort in our moments of pain and sorrow during the sudden demise of our son, husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin and friend.

It should have been a typical holiday church service.
We had gathered before church to prepare for the early service at Temple Baptist. A simpler and abbreviated service, it usually featured our minister of music providing a solo as the special music as I accompanied. There were seldom any hiccups, at least until that typical holiday service.

At I. A. Lewis School, the week before Thanksgiving brought more than preparations for a big holiday break.  Art Teacher Nancy Waldron and her gifted art students spent a day preparing canvases as part of a full-day workshop with local artist Frank Kelley Jr. 
Sponsored by Lincoln ACHIEVE, the workshop provided an opportunity for students to learn about various artistic styles from an artist with whom they share a similar background.  For Waldron, this was an important part of the message.
