When purchasing items, many have heard people say always buy products that are made in the United States, and while this may seem hard at times, two local residents opened a shop in downtown Ruston for this purpose.
Cassidy Kyme and Jake Dugard held an opening reception for Makers Union recently. The shop features pieces made by both Kyme and Dugard, as well as other items that are made in the U.S.

Don’t stress this holiday season

For many, last week’s Thanksgiving festivities heralded in the joy of the holiday season.

Andy Griffith would be proud.
One of the most amazing things for me about living in Ruston and Lincoln Parish is the sense of community and camaraderie here.
Not only are people here friendly, always stopping to say hello and ask about friends and family — here they are more than willing to go out of their way to lend a helping hand to those in need.
Case in point: Last week my wife asked friends if anyone had a trailer we could use to move a swing set and some playground equipment to our backyard.
Enter Lincoln Parish Assessor Sheila Bordelon and her son David Andrew.
