Three things that didn’t make my story

I love covering Ruston politics. It’s always a good source of entertainment – and the occasional story.

Here are three things that didn’t make today’s article about last night’s special session:

�—� Former Councilwoman Karen Pickett, who runs the Ruston Home blog, was passing around photocopies explaining the state’s open-meetings act. The portion explaining the ban on communicating about official business outside of official meetings was highlighted. "I’m just handing it out," she said.

�—� Councilman Wayne Stebner arrived 20 minutes early and cracked jokes – many aimed at himself – while waiting for the meeting to begin.

�—� Councilman Bradley Huson, like always, came dressed for the occasion. Hit suit came complete with a pocket square and a flower pinned to his lapel.
