Irby, Marna.jpg

Summer is definitely here — certainly in Dallas.  However, the weather can’t seem to make up its mind. One day recently, the temperature was 90 and by noon it had dropped to 68. By nightfall it was 77.
Seems everyone has had a cold or a bout with allergies. I think I was greedy and had them both, but you can’t keep a good gal down, so I’m on a roll now — even my red nose has settled down.

When Thelma Williams stepped off the train in October of 1956. It was 89 degrees. She had a mink coat, her luggage and no idea where her life was taking her.
“I wanted to take the coat off,” she said. “It was just so hot but I was afraid someone would steal it.”
Williams didn’t plan on coming to Louisiana. She had been a dancer at the Carnegie Hall Studio in New York and was ready to teach in North Carolina, but a last minute switch led her here to become the first dance teacher at Grambling State University.

The guide, which can be found on the city website, www.ruston.org, conveniently “puts all in one place all the opportunities to recycle,” Lori Faile, Ruston’s developmental services manager, said.
