As Sept. 11 passes each year, residents take a moment of pause to remember those lost and to thank those who have served this country in the military. Last month, a group of National Guardsmen returned home to the area, including some who call Ruston home.
All of this, along with recent American deaths on foreign soil, place the focus on the military.
Next week, residents will have a chance to learn more about something that affects nearly 60 percent of soldiers who see combat.

Writer reflects on tenure at Cedar Creek

in

I would like to take this opportunity to wish Cedar Creek School and the Ruston community well as school begins for the 2012-13 school session. I was so proud to see that the Cougars football team defeated BTW on Sept. 13! During my year at Cedar Creek, I saw a group of dedicated coaches and team members who worked extremely hard to improve the program, and that dedication to excellence appears to have paid great dividends.

Resident expresses political views

in

The temperature is freezing. Many do not have adequate clothing or shoes and are suffering from frostbite. Yet, the battle is looming. Ammunition is in short supply, yet the patriots of the newly formed United States of America are ready to fight. Their desire to be free men and support the divinely-inspired new country keep them going. They fought for our freedom, our liberty and the generations that followed them. Think of the horrible conditions they experienced and getting shot at to boot.

Government must wake up

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Once again, I was naïve. For a fleeting moment I trusted the “efficiency” of our government, specifically the State Department in Washington. Do you remember the old ad for the National Guard: “Sleep well tonight, your national guard is awake.” The State Department occupies the opposite position; don’t sleep well when it is supposedly on guard.
