Hatch, Dora Ann.jpg

Christmas tree farms or plantations, as they are sometimes called, are great places to visit prior to the Christmas season. Many Louisiana Christmas tree farms also have activities for fall fun, too.

A few months ago, I wrote about how my mother was in the Intensive Care Unit for almost an entire week.
At my age — and more specifically my mother’s age — it was a terrifying concept.

Ruston’s Christmas and Louisiana Peach Festival parades have a new organizer. The Rotary Club of Ruston will coordinate both events as a result of the demise of the Ruston Jaycees, long-time manager of the two parades.
“We’re super excited,” Angie Biscomb, Rotary president, said. “We love Ruston and feel honored to be able to continue these special events.”

For the past 17 years, Manuel Chinchilla has served the Ruston community through his convenience store, Pow Wow.
