The American Stat-Care Walk-In Medical Clinics have served the Ruston, Monroe, West Monroe and surrounding communities since 2006.
At American Stat-Care Centers, the staff take care of most non-emergent medical conditions as well as provide traditional Family Medicine services. Founder Dr. Enaka Yembe believes that people should be treated with a sense of decency, kindness and an awareness of the value of the patient’s time. Patients are free to walk into the clinic at anytime and be taken care of by the professional and experienced staff. The patients are always amazed at the quality of care they receive in a timely manner. The state-of-the-art facilities have x-rays on site, which are read by the same group of reading radiologists that cover the local hospitals. American Stat-Care Center’s policy, VIP treatment to all, has left patients and their families more than grateful to say the least.

School zone speed limits are in effect

The majority of Lincoln Parish students will be back in the classroom on Friday. When kids head back to school, residents have to take extra care to pay attention to traffic issues — such as school zone speed limits, buses and students walking to school — that haven’t been an issue for several months.
Lt. Tim Parker, public information officer with the Ruston Police Department, said the department wanted to remind individuals that school zones speed limits will be back in effect from 7-9 a.m. and 2-4 p.m. on school days. While the RPD won’t have extra patrols out, Parker said officers will begin enforcing the speed limits.

Parents have many options for helping prepare their children to start school again this week.
They can assist the student in getting organized by setting aside a certain place in the house where children should have their bookbags packed and ready to go. Parents might also help their child review after-school activities to find a good fit for them and set up a certain time and place designated for homework each afternoon.

Juneau, Dan.jpg

Legend says it started over the desire of some barefooted rebels to get a pair of shoes.
They approached the small Pennsylvania town and accidentally encountered the enemy. A skirmish started when a few Confederate brigades tangled with a few from the Union. Those initial shots were the beginning of the end of the Confederacy’s high-water mark in the Civil War.

Memory and 'broken' bike chains

BROOKS, BRENDA.jpg

I have heard as you get older you tend to forget things. I do know two things they say you never forget is how to tie your shoes, or how to ride a bike. I tend to believe that theory. I can still tie my shoes. And as a matter of fact, I took up biking about six months ago. No, I didn’t go telling people about it, because they would not believe it until they got the visual.

3. If you had to meet one famous professional athlete, who would it be and why? Hmmm. Kobe Bryant, because he is the next best thing to Michael Jordan, and who is still playing and has five championship rings.

Williams to guide RHS track

in
WILLIAMS RHS.jpg

There was a time back in the mid-1980s that Jimmy Williams admittedly didn’t know cross country from horseshoes.
For all he knew at the time, cross country might have meant driving across the country along Route 66.
Spin the calendar, though, 25 years later and Williams is immersed in cross country, the sport.
And also track and field.
Both of which he’ll be doing starting with the 2011-12 school year.
Williams has been announced as the new head coach for cross country and also track and field for both the boys’ and girls’ teams at Ruston High.
He succeeds Dave Anderson, who recently resigned to pursue other opportunities.
