Ruston is changing — quickly
Many things have changed in the past 15 years, when I first left Ruston as a 9-year-old. Brace yourself though, because they aren’t finished yet.
With the recent reopening of the Dixie Center for the Arts, known to my mother when she was growing up as the Dixie Theater, I’m reminded of the old saying, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”
Ruston will always and forever be a small, Southern town. It will never be confused for Shreveport, Baton Rouge or New Orleans.
