School supplies help DART children

in
Autrey, Terrie Q.jpg

The pleasures of living in a small community occur to me all the time these days. In a big city, daily news gets lost in the large-scale and urgent life.
In a small town like Ruston, people take note of the everyday needs of their neighbors. People remember. People care.

Parish comes through for those in need

We’ve seen it in the past, and we’ve seen in recent weeks — and we thank you.
The people of Lincoln Parish have come through again, coming together to help those in a time of need.
Recently you’ve read stories in the Ruston Daily Leader about hospitalized Leader Executive Sports Editor O.K. “Buddy” Davis and Deuce the injured Chihuahua needing help. And in their times of need, the people of Lincoln Parish responded.

But I sure do like to watch.
That was the case late Friday night (that faded into early Saturday morning) when a line of strong thunderstorms pushed through the area.
