Panel’s route good choice

Better late than never.
Geoffrey Chaucer appears to have been the first person to put that proverb into print around 1386.
But now, 633 years later, the adage is the perfect summation for the Union Lincoln Regional Water Supply Initiative’s decision to reboot and look at other ways to get Ruston and Farmerville off the beleaguered Sparta Aquifer besides a super-expensive, controversial pipeline.
“If we’re going to look at options, let’s look at them,” Jerry Taylor, the Union Parish Police Jury’s representative on the ULRWSI, said.
