Black History Month encompasses a wide array of aspects. Not only is it a time to reflect on accomplishments of great African-Americans throughout history, it also is a time to recognize those here at home still living today.
Fifty-year-old Reggie McLeroy is known nationwide for his drawings and paintings. However, he said he first began drawing as a child copying his sister.

The Health Hut has been serving uninsured Lincoln Parish residents since September, offering help to more than 900 residents, and the scope of its reach may soon stretch a little further. Plans are in motion to also offer the mobile health unit’s services to area small businesses that don’t provide insurance.
Health Hut founders Dr. Leonel Lacayo and his wife Lisa presented a proposed plan to a group of approximately 10 area small businesses Feb. 2 with the sole purpose of helping those who don’t have insurance.

Grambling seeks second hotel

in

GRAMBLING — Just over one month after the Town of Grambling approved the purchase of 9 acres of land and a market study to be conducted for a hotel in the area, the board of aldermen received some more news about possible economic development.
At their February meeting on Thursday evening, the town council approved a resolution in support of Resource One, a development and consulting firm from Virginia, which plans on working toward building another hotel in the town limits.

Meth problem for parish

When talking about the increasing number of felony arrests in Lincoln Parish, Sheriff Mike Stone has pointed to a growing drug problem as one large culprit.
And in recent years, a drug that might have previously been contained to large metropolitan areas — methamphetamine — seems to have made its way to the parish.
Statistics from the Sheriff’s Office reveal that since January 2010, approximately 50 individuals have been arrested on meth-related charges in Lincoln Parish.

Fan: Shreveport not a 'home' game

in

As a citizen of Ruston and a fan/supporter of Tech Athletics, I read with interest the article in Thursday’s edition of the Ruston Daily Leader regarding the Louisiana Tech Bulldog’s 2012 opening football game with Texas A&M. I think it is great that the Bulldogs get to play A&M again. I truly hope the outcome is much better than our previous games.  However, I am always amazed that the Tech Athletic Department calls playing in Shreveport “a home game.” Last time I went to Shreveport, it was about 70 miles away, and depending on traffic, at least an hour away. That’s not home.

A glimpse at Ruston Elementary

in
Garner-Price, Shavonne.jpg

It’s 6 a.m., and I have just arrived to prepare for the day ahead. Organizing my thoughts and reviewing my calendar is usually a futile action each morning, because a principal’s day is never the same.
It’s 6:45 a.m. and the first bus has arrived with our most important responsibility: the children. After feeding almost 500 children breakfast, we assemble in the gym for morning affirmations and announcements. As I gaze into the eyes of all the children, I understand and appreciate the task that I have been given. I realize each day they arrive that it is our responsibility to provide them with the best education we can possibly give them.

Legislation would have big local impact

Talk about a dilemma
We have all heard cliches that describe a dilemma. For example: “That puts me between a rock and a hard place;” or, “the horns of a dilemma;” or, “he’s in such a pickle”; or, “they are between the devil and the deep blue sea;” and my favorite, “he’s between a whale’s belly and the bottom of the ocean.”

Reader disagrees with Sunday alcohol sales letter

in

Having read Mr. Holloway’s letter to the editor in the Ruston Daily Leader on Feb. 5, which concerned his displeasure with the recent changes to the law formerly prohibiting all alcohol sales on Sundays, I wish to make a few comments.
As a follower of Jesus, I have found myself consistently bothered by any language or practice, which seems to have at its root a sort of religious legalism. (By “legalism,” I mean portraying in black or white actions that are in reality gray.) Whether or not Mr. Holloway subscribes to a form of legalism, it is precisely this sort of discomfort which a reading of his remarks elicited from me, and it is that which I wish to address.
