After 36 years of service to Liberty Mutual, Fred Sutton put in his last day Aug. 16.
More than 50 friends and colleagues — as well as Fred’s wife Lee, his daughter, sister and his extended family—joined to wish him well and toast his accomplishments at a luncheon and reception in his honor Wednesday at Portico’s restaurant in Ruston.
Ruston Fire Department responded to three back-to-back wrecks on Tuesday, one of which involved a cyclist.
RFD Public Education Officer Eric Brazzel said the first took place at 2:45 p.m. at the intersection of Celebrity Drive and Morrison Drive.
“It was a three-vehicle accident,” Brazzel said. “One had heavy damage, one had moderate and one minor damage. Two patients were transported to Northern Louisiana Medical Center, one with minor injuries and one with minor to moderate injuries.”
Ruston’s Board of Aldermen will be asked to make some additional changes in October to the city’s recently revised zoning code ordinance.
The planning and zoning commission on Monday agreed to forward to aldermen seven updates that the commission says continue to make the ordinance more workable. Aldermen will vote on the changes during their Oct. 6 meeting.
“This represents a part of the city’s ongoing commitment to keep the city code current, least restrictive and yet effective,” commission member Otha Anders said.
