Ruston’s $55.3 million budget for the coming fiscal year is on its way to the Board of Aldermen for approval.
The board’s personnel-finance committee, composed of the five aldermen, endorsed the 2105 spending plan Monday night. Aldermen officially vote on the budget ordinance Sept. 8. The fiscal year begins Oct. 1.
Procedurally, aldermen convened as the board of aldermen, then recessed and reconvened as the personnel-finance committee to consider the budget. They then recommended the budget back to themselves, reconvened as the board and introduced the budget ordinance.

Taking a piece of wood and carving something meaningful out of it is a tradition many have forgotten.
But not Jordan Williams, the 18-year-old son of Jill and Stephen Williams.
Williams said when he first started Southern Woods he wasn’t thinking of turning it into a real business.
“I’ve only been doing this about five weeks,” he said. “My grandpa learned from his dad, and my dad learned from him and has made a few pens.”
Williams is currently making pens, iPad styles, wine toppers, letter openers and men’s razor, all out of wood or deer.

Hotard, Steven.jpg

What can be said about this August weather? This summer has been pleasantly enjoyable with moderate temperatures and adequate rainfall. The one condition which has made the last few weeks less than ideal is the high humidity. Working in the garden can be a challenge when the body has a hard time cooling off and everything is dripping wet. Humidity, as you know if you work outside, can have a great effect upon human comfort levels.
