Hollingsworth thankful for input on zoning code

Resident tired of trashy highway

in

Ruston and Lincoln Parish have many obvious positive points. One that isn’t positive, is an eye sore, and a negative image of our city and parish is the trash.
Our roads look worse than some third world countries. Our roads are littered, particularly ones that lead to the parish landfill off Louisiana Highway 33. And main contributors are the municipal trucks headed to the landfill with trash flying out of their trucks.

020214 MICHAEL TIMPA BUCK C.jpg

Michael Timpa, 26, does not let his handicap keep him from spending time on the water and in the woods. The Lake Charles resident, born with spina bifida, had grown somewhat tired of duck hunting and wanted to move his hunting experiences up a notch to deer hunting.
On January 11, Timpa not only moved it a notch; he put it through the roof when he downed a monster nine-point buck with an eye-popping 29 1/4 inch inside spread.

Fallin, Randy 2014.jpg

If you’re a football fan (and probably even if you aren’t), you are aware that today is the Super Bowl. This year’s event is unique in that it is the first Super Bowl held in an outdoor, cold-weather site — New Jersey, to be specific. However, the 2014 game shares many similarities to past Super Bowls in terms of what it took for the two teams to arrive at this point.

Answer: “We are free up to the point of choice,” Mary Crowley wrote. “Then the choice controls the chooser.”
