Throughout my years here, I’ve heard many young people complain that there’s nothing to do in Ruston. And, a little more than a year ago a group of young people took that idea and ran with it.
Though they already loved the Dixie Center for the Arts, and the local arts program, they didn’t feel the community was quite reaching out to all age groups. So, Troupe Dixie, a group of 20, 30 and 40-somethings, formed to bring activities downtown geared toward entertaining younger people.
During the holidays, people worry about their waistlines more than usual. Gatherings most often involve decadent foods and drinks, and even those with the most steadfast willpower can find themselves overindulging. Some people will eat all they want while resolving to lose the weight during the New Year. But, as with change in all forms, it’s easier said than done. Many of these resolutions are broken.
