North Korea situation presenting quandary

in
Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

Where do we go from here?
Like it or not, it looks like North Korea has become a nuclear power after last week’s successful missile launch flew in a trajectory long enough to show that it could reach the East Coast of the United States.

Christmas came to the Louisiana Tech University family Thursday night in the form of a 15-foot Balsam Hill Rockefeller Pine tree set up in Centennial Plaza and a visit from Santa Claus.
Approximately 600 people, mostly students, watched as Champ, the university’s mascot, flipped an oversized switch that turned on the tree lights and its twinkling star topper.
“What is a family during December without a Christmas tree?” Student Government Association President Ben Rice asked those gathered for university’s inaugural tree-lighting ceremony.

The Ruston Community Theatre held their opening night of “A Christmas Carol” Thursday evening, and I have to say that I was impressed.
I usually really like the RCT performances, but this musical was above and beyond what I anticipated.
