Sen. Rick Gallot and the Lincoln Parish Police Jury are getting the ball rolling on a new courthouse for downtown Ruston. However, the ball may be rolling for several years before any ground is broken.
“The application is due by Nov. 1 and then it will be a complex process over the course of several years,” Parish Administrator Courtney Hall said in the police jury’s regular monthly meeting April 8. “It will take somewhere around 25 steps to complete the application.”

Fans of Louisiana Tech University’s basketball Bulldogs and Athletics Director Tommy McClelland can now breathe a collective sigh of relief.
