Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

When I first started working at the Ruston Daily Leader I was given the task of covering an event at our local Boys and Girls Club. Since then the organization has held a special place in my heart, and I have sort of been adopted as one of their own.
This weekend is packed full of events that will not only benefit the Boys and Girls Club of North Central Louisiana, but also bring families closer together.
On tap for tonight is their annual Jazzland concert, which Marc Broussard will headline and Larry Pannell along with the Grambling State University Jazz Ensemble will open.

He asked me what I meant. I thought for a minute then said: Everybody I know, including me, has an asterisk — something that better explains who that person is and how they got that way. I would think it’s pretty hard for anyone to go from birth to death with having an asterisk.
