Local businessman James “Jim” Shepherd, a Republican, has announced his candidacy for Police Jury District 6.
“The reason I’ve chosen to run for the Policy Jury seat in District 6 is my wanting to serve a parish that has been so good to me and my family,” Shepherd said. “I came to Ruston in 1991 not knowing anyone except for the Hedgepeth family. I had 30 years of experience in the Drycleaning/Laundry business, but wanted a business of my own.”
Ruston native Heather Roeder searches through clothes in the Dusty and Company booth of the Happy Market Arts and Crafts Fair. The market featured more than 60 vendors of handmade items, repurposed items and clothes Saturday at My Happy Place Vintage Market.
