Prevent summer brain drain

Though school has only been out for about a week, some parents are likely already hearing the familiar refrain of “I’m bored” coming from their children. School and extracurricular activities keep children’s minds buzzing throughout the school year, which can quickly result in boredom when the summer hits.
Luckily, various organizations across the city and parish offer everything from swimming lessons and tumbling lessons to volleyball and science camps. Though the summer is designed to be a break from classes, it shouldn’t be a break from learning for local children.

Mayoral race is heating up

Bergeron, Nancy 2014.jpg

Businessman Bill Elmore’s entry into the Ruston mayor’s race adds a new dimension to the campaign for the city’s top job.
Ronny Walker, who for all practical purposes has been the lone candidate in the race for almost a year, now has competition in his quest to succeed retiring Mayor Dan Hollingsworth. Last fall, Alderman Jim Pearce announced he was running, too, but he did little campaigning and pulled out of the race in January.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Years before Jackie Slater was a Hall of Fame offensive lineman, he was playing for Wingfield High School in Jackson, Mississippi, and hoping to attract the attention of college scouts.
This was in the early 1970s — about the time Southeastern Conference football teams were just beginning to recruit black players — so this massive teenager was mostly ignored by the big schools. But Jackson State welcomed him.
“It was where I was wanted,” Slater recalled. “And it’s where I could excel.”

Veterans remember

Stevens tells stories of Vietnam war

Ernie Stevens did something Monday that he doesn’t like to do. He talked about his tour of duty in Vietnam and five buddies he watched die.
“One thing common about most veterans is we’re uncomfortable talking about the horrors of wars, unless we’re talking among ourselves,” Stevens, a former Marine who’s now director of the Louisiana Military Museum, said. “But today I want to.”

052714 Murph Challenge C.jpg

Top: Evan Derveloy, owner of Crossfit Ruston, and Adam Reid were participants in the annual MURPH Challenge on Monday. The event honors Lt. Michael Murphy, a Navy SEAL, who while serving in Asadabad, Afghanistan, gave his life to protect his team. Upon being attacked by a group of Taliban soldiers with much higher numbers, Murphy sacrificed himself in order to get in a call for help to save his men. Those measures put him in the line of fire and he died soon after in June of 2005. Now, on Memorial Day, Crossfit honors his sacrifice by doing Murphy’s favorite workout.
