In this day and age, how many chances do you get to receive anything for free?
More importantly, how many times have you received for free something as expensive as dental work?
It happened last weekend as dentists and support staff from Peach Tree Dental in Ruston brightened the smiles of 100 area residents by providing a free teeth cleaning, tooth extraction or tooth filling to those who braved near-freezing temperatures to take advantage of the offer.
Christmas has come and gone and the new year has begun. However, with all the joys and tidings that the holiday season brings, so does it usher in tons of waste. From wrapping paper to boxes to Christmas trees, the dumpsters of Lincoln Parish are overflowing.
In an effort to keep Lincoln Parish clean, the City of Ruston has made disposing of some of the holiday garbage a little easier. Currently, a trailer is located in the parking lot across from the Ruston Civic Center, where residents may take their Christmas trees for disposal. While real trees, flocked and green ones alike, are accepted, manufactured trees are not.
