It’s the start of a new week, a new month, and for many, a new fiscal year.
And for Louisiana Tech University, it’s the start of a new era as Les Guice officially took over as university president this morning and Tech also begins its first day as a new member of the NCAA’s Conference-USA.
One of Guice’s first big moves as Tech’s new president will come in athletics as he begins the search for a new athletics director.
This letter is in reference to the story titled “Council votes down new apartments bid,” which ran on the front page of the Ruston Daily Leader on Nov. 2.
Three apartments in a historic building on California Avenue (yes, 1954 is now historic, and a gas station on the old highway has integrity) are not going to increase burglary and destroy the neighborhood.
Ruston is known throughout the state for the sweet juicy peaches that led previous generations to start the Louisiana Peach Festival.
Each June, thousands of people — both Lincoln Parish residents and visitors to the area — head out to the festival to get a taste of something sweet. Whether they’re after a unique gift at the arts and crafts market, a sweet treat from a vendor or some tunes played by one of several featured bands, there is something for everyone at the festival.
