Police encourage ‘smart’ giving

in

In response to recent reports of panhandling in the community, the Ruston Police Department is encouraging residents to be charitable, but to do so wisely.
In reference to citizen complaints of a man going around town asking for money to help pay for a tow truck, RPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Clint Williams suggested that residents could call the garage or tow service themselves and then directly pay for the service.
“We encourage our citizens to be charitable to someone who is in need,” Williams said in a statement. “But we would encourage our citizens to help wisely.”

Wayne family reflects legacy

The Wayne family can say something not many people will ever get to say — that they are in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The family was notified two months ago that their bid would be included in the Guinness Book of World Records. Of the 86 family members that attended Grambling State University, 40 graduates were accepted.
The official record was the “Largest Family to Attend the Same University.”
The family was honored last weekend in Dallas, complete with a professional photo shoot.

Peach Festival countdown begins

Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

The countdown is on!
Ruston’s annual Louisiana Peach Festival presented by Squire Creek is set for Friday-Sunday and is always one of my favorite weekends of the year.
Why? Let me count the ways (or reasons).
1.) The food. Who doesn’t love good old fashioned festival food? Funnel cakes, chicken on a stick, turkey legs — that’s some good eating. Throw in some cool lemonade on a hot summer day and some peach ice cream to cap it off and you’ve got the makings of some perfect summer treats. And don’t forget the reason the festival exists — our sweet peaches from right here in Ruston.

More good news from the capitol

Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the good news and the bad news for domestic violence victims and service providers in Louisiana. In that column, I wrote about the good news of two new bills which had been introduced by legislators during this session, passed through the House and the Senate, and were signed into law by Gov. Bobby Jindal.
One of these laws allows for stricter penalties for domestic violence offenders. The other law bans an abuser under a protective order from possessing a firearm.
