Take waste day seriously

Every day, people throw away batteries, cleaners, pesticides and other hazardous chemicals and materials without the knowledge that such choices ultimately impact the environment.

Holiday has lost its meaning

The day used to be a national day of mourning, a solemn and sacred day of remembrance to honor those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. Businesses closed for the day. Towns held parades honoring the fallen, the routes oftentimes ending at a local cemetery, where Memorial Day speeches were given and prayers offered up.

Jaquez: Power-packed opener

It would have been a shorter initial day for the third annual tourney, but a one-hour and 41-minute delay was caused by a storm that blew into the area with high winds, lightning and intermittent rain at 4:17 p.m.
It wasn’t your ordinary wind storm, either.

Explore your parish this summer

Many of us look toward the summer with high hopes of travel. It’s a popular part of American life that fulfills a desire to see new things and experience more.
Rest assured that without changes that cannot be seen on our horizon right now, the price of gas will become prohibitive for many this summer. As it crawls toward $4 per gallon for the cheapest grade in our region, many will be forced to reconsider their grand vacation plans.

Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth cautioned that current revenue sources should not be taken for granted.
“There a life cycle on (oil and gas exploration),” Hollingsworth said. “It’s very easy for a public body, if it’s not careful, to get addicted to that extra income, and it’s awfully hard to wean yourself off, particularly if you make a lot of commitments like recurring debts or expenses.”
