Ruston City Council members made decisions on the future of several structures at Monday night’s regular meeting, including one of their own.
Lewis Love, city administrator, said more than 300 structures have been demolished or hauled off in the last four years.
“I keep thinking we will have them all, and they just keep coming,” Love said. “They were all basically falling down. The structures were an eyesore and safety hazard with possible illegal activities going on inside them. I think they will keep coming — hopefully not at this level.”

One of the greatest joys I’ve found in spending time as a Dixie volunteer is the opportunity to work with the talented artists that we present in the theater.
And the next artist to perform is one that I’m certainly looking forward to meeting in person. While I’ve had telephone conversations with key people from Nashville in planning the Pam Tillis concert, I’ve yet to speak with Pam. I’m looking forward to welcoming her to Ruston on Jan. 26 along with many others who have already purchased tickets to the event.

Techsters win, ’Dogs edged

Women stop Idaho, men trimmed in overtime

If you went strictly by the look on Teresa Weatherspoon’s face late Thursday night, it was difficult to determine whether her team won or lost.
Well, the Lady Techsters of Louisiana Tech University won and their head coach was pleased that they successfully began defense of their Western Athletic Conference with a 66-54 victory over Idaho at the Thomas Assembly Center.
It was just the manner in which they went about in doing so that bothered ‘Spoon.

Black and gold-wearing fans create fun like their team
2 Saints Fans.jpg

Section 152 of the massive Mercedez Benz Superdome was shaking.
Honestly.
That’s where I was seated for the recent wild-card NFL playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and Detroit Lions.
Instead of doing the normal journalistic gig and sitting high atop in the press box, I decided to evaluate this postseason meeting of the two NFC teams the way a regular fan does.
