“Do not give them your personal or credit card information and do not send them money electronically,” he said.

Such was the premise of the recent two-hour-long Lincoln Parish United Town Hall Meeting. The annual Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce event is designed to allow government, education, business and law enforcement agencies about 10 minutes each to update the public on what each group did the previous year and their plans for the year to come.
