The Ruston-Lincoln communities are fortunate to have talented individuals who are willing to bring the arts to them.
From March 5-8, the Ruston Community Theatre will host “To Kill A Mockingbird” at the Dixie Center for the Arts.
However, in addition to this production, the Lincoln Parish Library will also host events to coincide with the play.
LPL Programming Coordinator Emily Arnold said when Ruston Community Theatre announced their production of “To Kill A Mockingbird,” she immediately thought it would be a great opportunity for the library to host an event based on the book.

Bullying: Nightmare in the schools

in
Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

As an Air Force family, we moved around a lot. In fact, I attended 11 schools between kindergarten and high school graduation. My younger sister, Diane, was very shy and this was always very difficult for her. The “new kid” is an ideal target for bullying. I remember the year my father was transferred to Charleston Air Force Base. We arrived right after Christmas. Diane was in the seventh grade. As soon as she started classes, she became a victim of bullying. The most popular girl in school, a pretty young student named Ginger, decided to make my sister her personal project.

’Dogs need strong run into March

in
Davis, OK.jpg

March Madness is upon us.
And that means it’s time to start scribbling down notes and gathering information about where teams might land in the NCAA’s annual “Big Dances” for both men’s and women’s programs.
Given my questionable ability to consistently identify eventual champions or Final Four participants, I will leave the “bracketology” class to other members of our profession.
But one thing I can do on this Sunday morning, a month before the national playoff field will be unveiled, is to critique how the 2014-2015 season has gone for Louisiana Tech University’s men and women.
