Since 1995, members of the Piney Hills Quilt Guild have worked hand in hand, and needle by thread, to make a unique quilt to be raffled off at the Louisiana Peach Festival.
Charter member Irene Taylor said it all got started by the Women of Grace — members of Grace United Methodist Church — who held a quilt show as a fundraiser.
“Ulrikye came and said ‘Anyone that would like to start a quilt guild, sign here,’” Taylor said.
The guild currently consists of 44 members. Irene Taylor and Artie Bergeron are the two charter members — Bergeron passed away June 10 in Ruston.

When Shane Reynolds headed to Venezuela in 1991, he was determined to get his baseball career in gear.
Back then, the Bastrop native was a minor leaguer in the Houston Astros farm system. His Double-A manager Rick Sweet was going to Venezuela for winter ball and the organization invited Reynolds to play there.
“I’d had a good second half of the season in Double-A,” Reynolds said. “They usually only take guys with Triple-A experience or less than a year of big league experience over there. But they wanted me to play and I went.”

Bergeron, Nancy 2014.jpg

You have to hand it to Ruston’s Board of Aldermen. It’s reached a success level that few, if any, public bodies ever attain. On June 2, the board of aldermen made everybody happy.
That’s the night the board unanimously approved the city’s first neighborhood conservation overlay district. The historic vote came after the board also unanimously agreed to remove from the plan one street that’s on the edge of the new district.
