But the 17-year-old, soon-to-be high school graduate, understands if he has no prior experience in his respected field, the pathway to success may be, at times, daunting.

What on Tuesday was forecast to be a minor rain event that would only hit Lincoln Parish on the fringe, turned major Wednesday night when steady, hard rain plunged close to 30 parish roads underwater.
The flooding forced closure of Lincoln Parish public schools. Though Cedar Creek School in Ruston remained open, students who were unable to make it to class because of flooding will be given excused absences, Cedar Creek Head of School Andy Yepson said this morning.
The parish remains under a flash flood watch until 6 a.m. Friday.

Sales tax revenue on the rise

in

Sales tax income throughout Lincoln Parish continued “without exception “ to have upward trends during the fourth and final quarter of 2017 and in year-to-date comparisons for the same period last year.

“Things look overall pretty good,” said Denise Griggs, sales and use tax administrator.
Year-to-date revenue remains approximately 11 percent with most of the parish benefit from the oil and gas boom in the parish.
Ruston continues to see large numbers in year-to-date collections.
