Reader writes about President Donald Trump

in

This is a time for serious people in our government.
Good governance is a must at this dangerous time for our nation. And we aren’t seeing it.

That’s worse than turnout for the U.S. Senate runoff in 2016 when 26 percent of parish voters went to the polls, and even worse than the skimpy 12 percent of Ruston voters who participated in the April 2016 sales tax election. It’s even worse than — well, that’s enough.

Head coach Mark Montgomery’s team defeated Louisiana College 8-0 in the second game of the day to improve to 4-0-1 on the fall.
