After all, 20 percent of the state is covered by water, and 40 percent of the coastal wetlands in the lower 48 states are in Louisiana.

Kay impacted my life because she loved me.
Love in the brain changes nothing. It hugs and prays and cries and sings. Love does things. What a privilege to be loved by a Christian wife!

Ruston’s Planning and Zoning Commission is sending six more proposed changes in the city’s zoning code to the board of aldermen for adoption.
Chief among the revisions approved by the commission Monday night is the enlargement of a new zoning category that’s a buffer between the downtown area and adjoining residential neighborhoods.
