My college journalism teacher always told me I used too many dashes, and sometimes I still get commas in the wrong place. I confess to taking a little editorial license every now and then, especially when it comes to Southern speak.

It won’t be long until about 20 parking downtown parking places along the west side of Monroe Street from the KCS railroad tracks to Mississippi Avenue will revert to all-day free parking.
Ruston’s Board of Aldermen voted unanimously Monday to rescind a portion of the city’s parking ordinance that put a three-hour limit on those spaces.
