Cattle killed when vehicles lock horns

Larry Mathews, residence and age unknown, was the driver of the cattle truck. He was uninjured, but some damage to the trailer let cows escape onto the road and woods surrounding the area. Men on horses were on the scene well into the morning, with law enforcement and volunteers working to load dead and live cattle onto trailers at 9 a.m.

Ruston 21 spotlights residents’ concerns

“We should keep things with character, like the buildings downtown,” Goodwin said.
“Downtown is where it all started, and people can walk downtown instead of driving their cars across Interstate 20 to get to businesses on the north side of town.”
The meetings this week were held as a follow-up to November’s Community Visioning Day, where approximately 400 local residents gathered to discuss what they would like to preserve and what they would like to change in the city.
