Show parish is Lincoln United

Lincoln Parish residents have an opportunity Monday evening to hear government, education and business leaders from across the parish talk about their accomplishments in 2016 and their plans for 2017.

The forum is the annual Lincoln Parish United Town Hall Meeting that begins at 6 p.m. at the Ruston Civic Center. The event is free and open to all.

It’s a gathering that we hope packs the house. The reason: An informed citizenry is an empowered citizenry. And, as Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce board Chairman Cathi Cox-Boniol aptly said, “We are stronger when we stand together.”

Grambling State University President Rick Gallot told a group of GSU students to focus on their studies without participating in illegal activities.
