Many plans special Memorial Day movie

Movies in Many will play a special and tender war movie, ‘Memorial Day’ on Saturday, May 22, at the Many Community Center, at 7 p.m.

The movie is free and will be played in honor of all the Sabine Parish soldiers who have fought for our country from World Wars I and 11, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Iraq War, and the Wars in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

Door prizes will be given out in honor of Sabine Parish veterans. Prizes will include American flags and other items that respect our country and the valiant soldiers who served our country.

‘Memorial Day’ is a touching war movie that the entire family should see. During this country’s troubled times, families can be reminded of the sacrifices soldiers have made throughout the years for the United States.

“This year was the biggest turn-out we’ve ever had, and we look forward to the years to come,” Shelley Poche said. “We are thankful for our sponsors, vendors and volunteers who made the tournament successful.” The tournament paid back to fishermen $33,950 and 12 prizes.

Many Police Dept. encourages you to buckle up and save a life

Many Police Dept. encourages you to buckle up and save a life

The Many Police Department recently received a Special Wave Enforcement grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission to partner with the state in its annual Click it or Ticket program. Beginning Mary 24, 2021 and continuing through the Memorial Day holiday, the Town of Many Police Depart ment will be checking to make sure everyone is properly secured in their vehicles, drivers and passengers alike. Extra patrols will be on duty to ensure that our town’s citizens are safe as they travel on city streets and roads throughout town.

One of the safest choices drivers and passengers can make is to buckle up EVERY TIME they get into a vehicle. Many Americans understand the lifesaving values of the seat belt as the national use rate was 90.7% in 2019. Seat belt use in passenger vehicles saved an estimated 14,955 lives in 2018. In contrast, of the 22,215 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2019, 47% were not wearing seat belts.

April is such a busy time in the garden. It’s also when we celebrate Earth Day. What better time to reflect on how we as gardeners can help preserve our planet for future generations than now?

We can do many things to help minimize our impacts to the environment in the way that we care for our landscapes.

According to the Pesticide Action Network (PAN) of North America, each year, an estimated 1 billion pounds of pesticides are applied to U.S. farms, forests, lawns and golf courses, with more than 17,000 pesticide products currently on the market. Worldwide, 5.6 billion pounds of pesticides are used each year.

In general, landscapes that use highly cultivated plants require more chemical inputs such as fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

Article Image Alt Text

NSU Esports supporters from the university, the Natchitoches community and others attended a ribbon cutting for the university’s new Esports venue. On the front row from left are Natchitoches Mayor Ronnie Williams, School Board Member Steven Harris, Chamber of Commerce President Laura Lyles, NSU personnel Patric Dubois, Jason Stelly, Reatha Cox, Dr. Chris Maggio, Chance Creppel, Frances Conine, Jace Gentry and Ron Wright. On the back row are Van Erikson, gamers Matthew Gamble, Jackson Weldon, Evan Ellis and Patrick Murr, Alan Pasch and Kenn Babin of SBB Architects.

Northwestern State University officially opened a state of the art Esports venue, the largest of its kind in Louisiana. The Esports venue is located in Room 122 of the Sylvan Friedman Student Union, a large space that was formerly the campus bookstore. Competitive Esports is a club sport administered through the WRAC, but the facility is open to all students for recreational gaming.

Esports are video games that are played in a highly organized competitive environment. Games can range from popular, team-oriented multiplayer online battle arenas to single player first person competitions, survival battles or virtual reconstructions of physical sports. The concept of Esports at NSU began at the beginning of Dr. Chris Maggio’s tenure as president when student focus groups put forth suggestions on what campus amenities prospective students would find attractive.

Flowering cherry trees are true showstoppers. These trees can be seen blooming around Louisiana in February and March. In the southern part of the state, the first flowers appear in late January. Right now, they are in full bloom on the LSU campus in Baton Rouge, and boy are they gorgeous!

The attractive flowers are a vibrant, dark pink and are produced on bare branches just before leaves emerge to create a stunning show. These deciduous trees grow up to 20 feet in height and are equally as wide. They are well-suited for USDA plant hardiness zones 7b to 9a.

Flowering cherries make a great specimen, or accent, tree in the landscape. The tree form is upright, and its arching branching habit makes it perfect for lining a road or driveway.
