Clerical error delays decision

in

A clerical error caused Ruston’s Planning and Zoning Commission to postpone a decision on a developer’s request to build 24 townhouses on a roughly 2-acre site on Kavanaugh Road.
The panel voted Monday to delay action on O’Winn of Louisiana’s conditional use application after a neighbor told the commission she discovered the discrepancy when she tried to determine the exact location of the site.

Aunt Grace makes appeal for cleaner parish

tirado.jpg

More on the environment — an old friend stopped by to see me the other day, and he was telling me how he told his wife that our parish is the “trashiest parish” around.
