Eli St. Martin stood focused on the large pair of scissors in his right hand. Carefully, he cut along the seam between a red and white stripe of the rumpled American flag that lay half in his lap and half in a heap with others flags.

“This is hard,” Eli, 8, said.

Eli was one of 22 scouts from Boy Scout Troop 45 and Cub Scout Pack 45 who spent Saturday morning preparing approximately 110 worn, tattered and faded U.S. flags for retirement.

in
Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

Father’s Day is this Sunday and in honor of this occasion, I wanted to write a column about the role of fathers in preventing domestic violence.

061316 CCA C.jpg

The members of Ruston Rotary contributed $400 to support Lincoln Rotary’s summer food drive for CCA.
Lincoln Rotary requests residents support CCA by going to Super 1 Foods and buying extra food items and placing the donations on the shelf on the right as customers exit the store. There is a section near the pharmacy on the far right of the store, as customers walk in, where there are discounted food items that CCA needs.
