When Ruston’s Board of Aldermen approved the city’s updated zoning ordinance earlier this year, the board was determined that the public understand the newly revised regulations were part of a living, breathing document.

Throughout the history of this country, brave men and women have been willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect us.
Despite the homage we pay them on Veterans Day and other similar days of remembrance, the reality is that as a society we pay them back with fear and distrust. They serve our country and then we refuse to allow them the chance to serve society in other ways on the home front.
