in
012614 Fox Squirell C.jpg

In my forty years of living in Ruston, there have been two people whose journalistic brilliance held me spellbound. By soaking up what they do, I have gained insight into how it should be done; how they expertly transfer thoughts and images from the brain and heart through fingertips onto the printed page. Teddy Allen is one; Wiley Hilburn is the other.
Webster defines “laureate” as one “crowned with laurel as a mark of honor.” Wiley Hilburn, in my mind’s eye, sports a laurel wreath.

Asher, Jemery.jpg

Several weeks ago, our Pastor, Dr. Reggie Bridges, preached a sermon on Hebrews 11. For those who are not familiar with that chapter, it contains what has become known as the “Hall of Faith.” The Scripture records names of people who lived long ago, whose lives are commended for having demonstrated great faith in God.
