Newly announced gubernatorial candidate U.S. Sen. David Vitter called education “the key to the kingdom” of Louisiana’s future during a stop in Ruston on Friday.
The conservative Republican spent about an hour in a closed-door meeting with a small group of education, business and community leaders.
Vitter said afterward that the group talked mostly about the value of education, not only from an academic standpoint but also as an economic driver.
“For the whole state, it is our future,” he said.
Vitter announced last week that he would run for governor in 2015.

Mayor honored by Russ Award

Dan Hollingsworth didn’t have to run for mayor back in 1998. He already had a lucrative career in the radio business. But he wanted to make Ruston an even better place than he felt it already was.
So he sold his broadcast company and entered city politics.
And now the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce has selected Hollingsworth as the recipient of the 2013 Robert E. Russ Award.

It is not often that persons from separate generations have true friends, one generation to the other, but this was one of those instances for me. Actually many of us lost this person as a friend, even those who did not know him.
