Thank you, may I have another?

Rogers, Randy.jpg

My oldest brother Jimmy and I were talking on the phone the other day and we got on the subject of spanking, or whuppin’s, as we called them in the South. We both agreed that in our house you quickly learned the difference between being whupped and being spanked. It was easy — Daddy whupped. Mama spanked.
From the time I could run, my personal policy regarding child punishment was: If you can catch me, you can punish me. To avoid one of Mama’s spankings, I would go running and slide under my bed so I would be out of the reach of her belt.

Ruston Mayor Ronny Walker has finished putting together his management team.
The nine-person team includes representatives from each major city department, plus the assistant to the mayor and daily operations manager. Both the mayoral assistant and operations positions are new.
“My philosophy is to have more people involved in the decision-making process for our city. This is especially helpful as we begin working on our 2016 budget as each department is able to see the needs of the entire city rather than only their department’s needs,” Walker said Tuesday in announcing the team.
