Andy and Dawn Warren were surprised, to say the least, when they found out their employees had paid for them and their daughter to take a well-deserved vacation. 
“I was so shocked,” said Dawn. 
After 19 years in business, the Warrens decided to close Andy’s Handy Foods, located at 2206 Louisiana Highway 33, due to declining sales and the recession.

After 33 years of serving in the Lincoln Parish School System, Burton has finally hung up his baseball cap and retired from the profession.
Most recently, the Ruston native served as assistant principal at Ruston Junior High, which seems fitting since his interest in education was sparked during his own middle school years.

Our rain this past week was a most welcomed sight.  We could still use more but are very thankful for what we got.

NFL lawsuit looms over league

This New Orleans Saints “bountygate” stuff is really starting to drive me up the wall when it comes to over coverage of an event. It doesn’t matter what goes on, at least once a day I hear someone on ESPN talking about the Saints and their quest to appeal National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell’s decision to suspend multiple players and coaches for quite a large chunk of the upcoming season.
