For those residents that have children, they know growing out of clothes barely worn is an issue that all families must face. Some are able to afford new clothing, specifically school uniforms, but others are not.
For those families who are struggling with affording new uniforms and spiritwear for their children, Junior Auxiliary of Ruston’s “Second Life Uniform Collection” is here to help.
The member of the JAs are asking anyone who has extra clothes to donate them so others can be sure to have clothing for the rest of the year.
Caution is always warranted when it comes to driving, but now, in the days after Christmas and up to New Year’s Eve, is a time for heightened awareness. With Christmas behind us, many people will say goodbye to friends and family and travel home. The roadways will have more traffic, and with more traffic comes more danger. Regardless of the distance traveled, people should wear their seat belts. On Monday in Lincoln Parish, a car crash claimed the life of a man who did not wear his safety harness.
