Area reels from closure
Gov. Bobby Jindal and other state officials are expected to be in Farmerville on Monday to meet with growers and plant workers in a show of support and to see if the state can do anything to help those facing the sudden loss of their livelihoods.
“I’m planning on going to the meeting in Farmerville on Monday,” Ruston poultry farmer Stan Jones said. “Hopefully, the state will be able to figure out some way to help. I’ve heard several ideas talked about, but I don’t know if any of them could work out or not. I guess that’s something we’ll find out during Monday’s meeting.”
