Couples Court: Paul and Ali are getting ready to host a first birthday party for their daughter at their home. It is being catered by a local restaurant. Paul's mother thinks it's terrible that they aren't making all the food themselves. She is Greek and thinks that they should be cooking for their guests. Ali reminds Paul that it's not "her" guests, it's theirs and she does not want her mother-in-law cooking in her kitchen on the day of her daughter's party. Paul says he can't ban his mom from his house if she wants to come over and cook! What do you think?

Couples Court: Beth and her husband Steve are both in the medical field. Beth is a psychologist and would like to take two months off this summer to spend it with their children. Her husband is very much against it. He thinks that taking that much time off puts her practice in jeopardy, isn’t fair to her patients, and could signify a loss of income for their family. Beth disagrees and says that she preaches about burn out and she needs to give herself the self-care. She doesn’t think she’ll lose patients and thinks it’ll all be okay. What do you think?

Couples Court: Monica and Jonathan’s teenage daughter's birthday (turning 14) is this weekend, and she has one request, tickets to see Olivia Rodrigo. Tickets are selling on the resale market for over $600 each for not great seats. Mom says that they should just buy a pair, she can take one friend, she'll sit outside and wait. Dad says no way, that's a ridiculous amount of money and she's too young to go into a show by herself. What would you do?

What do you think?

Former Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth dies at 89
MARCH 19, 2024
Lincoln Parish Journal

Former Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth (middle) passed away Monday at the age of 89.

By T. Scott Boatright
Former Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth, who served four terms at the city’s helm from 1999-2015, died in his Ruston home on Monday at the age of 89.
Hollingsworth, who owned several radio stations at the time, first ran for mayor of Ruston in 1994 but lost to incumbent Mayor Hilda Taylor Perritt before defeating Perritt in the 1998 election and taking office on Jan. 1, 1999.
After being reelected three times, Hollingsworth did run in the 2014 election.
Hollingsworth was the brainchild behind “Ruston 21,” a plan he introduced in 2008, to address the city’s needs well into the 21st century. From Ruston 21 came plans for capital improvements, economic development, and zoning and land-use improvements.
That plan saw Ruston upgrade electrical and sewer systems,facilities and equipment for the Ruston Police Department, and begin work to restore and revitalize downtown Ruston, work that is still happening today.
Hollingsworth also oversaw completion of a $22 million service road and overpass project that included widening of the intersection of Georgia Avenue and U.S. Highway 167 from a two-lane roadway to three lanes at that intersection to help alleviate traffic congestion.
Born in Meridian, Mississippi, Hollingsworth was inducted into the Meridian Community College Hall of Fame in 2015.
Beginning a radio career in Mississippi, Hollingsworth was honored by Best Spot Series in 1965 by the Mississippi Broadcasters Association.
He moved to Ruston in 1968 and in 1969 bought KRUS radio and ended up also owning KNBB and KXKZ before selling the stations in 2001.
In 2013, Hollingsworth was honored with the Robert E. Russ Award, presented by the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce to recognize individuals for outstanding contributions to the local business community or overall economic development of the area.
Hollingsworth is also remembered for strengthening the town and gown relationship between city government and Louisiana Tech University during his time in his office.


Couples Court: Chris and Blythe have been married for 10 years. She has totaled three cars during this time and now he wants her to drive a used be**er car. He says that she has proven she is not responsible enough for a new car and has wrecked enough. She thinks it’s ridiculous, it was bad luck, and it’s not fair that he drives a brand-new Jeep and he wants to put her in a car that’s ten years old. They both work, she should be able to get whatever she wants. He doesn’t even want her to put the kids in the car with her anymore!

Couples Court: Susie and Mark’s 30-year-old son has moved back in with them after his divorce.

Susie has no problem with her son being home, and neither does Mark- except Mark thinks he should be paying rent or contributing to the household expenses.
