Getting rid of some portable buildings is one of the top priorities on Ruston Junior High School Principal Tim Nutt’s to-do list if voters approve a millage tax extension on Nov. 16.
Since the last capital improvement project eight years ago, Nutt said there are certain needs that have arisen, such as new programs and course offerings.
“For example, one thing we will do is we will have a permanent building for our art and ag programs, as well as additional classrooms,” Nutt said.

Enjoy the sweet taste of helping

Light, fluffy pancakes are a delicious way to start the morning, which gave two local organizations a great idea — pancake breakfast fundraisers.
On Friday, the Ruston Kiwanis Club will hold its annual Pancake Day. Each year, it provides a morning and evening opportunity for residents to pick up pancakes, sausage and bacon while helping with the various causes Kiwanis focuses on each year.
This event, which is from 6:30-9 a.m. and 4:30-7 p.m. Friday at the Ruston Civic Center, costs $7.
The fundraiser is the only one the Kiwanis Club hosts each year.

Simsboro also made remarkable gains, achieving a 110.5. CHS and SHS are both excellent schools with great administration and competent teachers, and the proof lies in their gains and achievements.

With November here we’re on the brink of the holiday season. However, the severe sugar overload we’re witnessing now reminds us that we just wrapped up one of the most highly anticipated holidays for kids of all ages.
Yes, Halloween has come and gone. No doubt the confection companies are still running totals to see whose sugary treats topped this year’s list. We all have favorites. Some go for chocolate, then there’s the fruit variety, some lean toward mint, others want nuts and on and on.
