Kindergarten celebrated Apple Day on Sept. 25. Parents came to work centers that focused on math, science, reading and art. Each student brought an apple to carry with them to the measuring station where they weighed and measured their apples. Other activities included sequencing an apple story, creating the life cycle of the apple, tasting different types of apples, painting seasons of an apple tree and much more. The students had such a fun and educational day. Thanks to all the parents who came to help make apple day a great success.
Cub Scouts Pack 45 held its annual Pinewood Derby on Saturday at the Ruston Parks and Recreation Gym. The Thunderbird District Pinewood Derby followed later in the day. Cub Scouts, with the help of an adult, built their own cars using a kit consisting of a solid block of pine, plastic wheels and metal nails as axles.
The idea behind the Pinewood Derby is for a parent or guardian to spend quality time helping the boy design, carve, paint, add weights and tune the final car. The derby was first run in 1953 and continues today throughout the Boy Scouts of America organization.

After 12 years of service to Ruston, Lincoln Parish and the surrounding communities, Ben and Kellie Malone owners of Malone Polaris decided it was time for a change.
Owner Ben Malone said they felt it was time to expand from their 5,000 square foot building on East Kentucky Avenue and in doing so a name change was needed.
“Changing to Polaris of Ruston really just tells people what we do and where we are,” he said. “The location has changed but the people are the same. The new facility allows us, not only continue to grow, but to also keep up the level of service I expect.”
