Ruston teenager Brooke Evans, who killed a big buck while hunting with her dad (Thomas Evans) in 2011, recently outdid herself when she shot a solid white 8-point buck. She and her dad were hunting earlier this month with Triple A Outfitters near Carthage, Texas. The deer is not a true albino, according to her dad, because it did not have pink eyes. Brooke is a 15-year-old freshman at Cedar Creek.

The future holds many uncertainties, and your retirement is no exception: “What age should I retire?” “How long will I live in retirement?” “When should I start taking Social Security?” “How will rising medical costs affect me?” That’s why planning is so critical, and a good plan will take into account many of the possible uncertainties.

Being optimistic about 2013

As I write this the West Point Military Band is playing and I’m thinking of the end of another year wondering what the new one will bring. I didn’t expect to be ending 2012 in the rehab hospital. I’m not trying to be Polyanna, but I can’t help thinking there are many alternatives that could be worse.

Parties abound

Ruston has been filled with parties and social gatherings, from shrimp boils to holiday office events.
In this feature, the Ruston Daily Leader is asking residents to submit photos of themselves, or others, at social functions ranging from fundraisers to tailgating, anniversary celebrations to Christenings. While similar photos are often published in Club News, Anniversaries, etc., these photos will differ as those in attendance are showcased rather than the event.
