For the past year, 28-year-old Grambling resident Quinton Cooksey has been working hard at his job in Shreveport to save up enough cash to start doing what he loves — making the perfect chicken wings and sauce that everyone in the area can enjoy.
Cooksey already tried to tackle his dream of owning his own wing place once, and while things didn’t go exactly how he had planned, he now will have a second shot at it with a little assistance from “Help Me Start My Business,” a new reality television program on MTV aimed at helping young small business owners start successful establishments.
Improvements to a sanitary sewer lift station that serves a large portion of southeast Ruston will begin within the next 30 to 60 days.
The city’s Board of Aldermen on Monday accepted San-Tech of Ruston’s low bid of $270,800 for the project. Aldermen also authorized the first phase of a planned apron expansion at the Ruston Regional Airport. That project is expected to begin in October.
