Volunteers make festival a success

We would like to thank all of our parents and students for coming out and participating in our Family Fall Fun Festival. We had a great turnout. We would also like to give a big “thank you” to all of our volunteers. They are our Parent Teacher Organization, Louisiana Tech University students and the Ruston High School Bearcat Belles. Without the support and donations from our parents and our Adopt-a-School Sponsors, this would not have been possible. We look forward to planning our next parental involvement activity.

Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: My husband and I pulled out our car insurance policies the other day ... what a mess!  I’m not sure what we need. Can you help?
 
Answer:  Buying automobile insurance ranks right up there with doing your taxes and writing thank you notes.  You know you are supposed to do it, but it’s easy to put off.
So, for a little motivation, pull out your wallet. Go ahead, pull it out.  I’ll wait.

Davis, OK.jpg

Random thoughts along the sports beat while wondering if managers Tony LaRussa of the Cardinals and Ron Washington of the Rangers are scheduling blood pressure tests this week after a nerve-wracking World Series:
