Marthaville News

By Donna Dyson-Horn

I am so sorry about no news last week, but I did try to send it in and I guess my news is still floating around somewhere in the clouds because it sure has not landed, so now I am running a week behind but that is alright because never late than never. I wanted to tell our readers about the Veterans day program I attended at our Marthaville Elem/Jr. High School that took place in our school gym, this was just too good to pass up. It started out by the parade of the Veterans all walking in and taking their seat, they were the Honorees of this program.

Remembering Pearl Harbor on its 75 anniversary

By Rickey Robertson

On Sunday morning December 7, 1941 the U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet was moored in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. After a week of training at sea, there were very few early risers that morning as a gentle breeze blew across the beaches of Honolulu. In just a few short hours, they would be awakened to war. Sitting at anchor in “Battleship Row” were seven giant vessels of the fleet, the battleships California, Maryland, Oklahoma, Tennessee, West Virginia, Arizona, and Nevada. Along with the battleships, a total of 94 vessels were at anchor in Pearl Harbor that tranquil morning. All these ships were gathered in this anchorage which is less than three square miles in size.

It’s time to think about choosing this year’s Christmas tree. But before you do, the LSU AgCenter suggests a few things to consider. First, measure the area where you will place the tree to make sure you don’t buy a tree that’s too large. LSU AgCenter forestry specialist Niels de Hoop recommends making sure you get the freshest tree you can. As faculty advisor in the School of Renewable Natural Resources, he oversees selling Christmas trees by the Society of American Foresters student chapter at LSU.

NWLTC-SVC donates to Operation Christmas Child

Since the end of October, students at Sabine Valley Campus have been collecting supplies to contribute to the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child project hosted by the campus SGA chapter. Each department had a specific list of items to be donated: business brought school supplies, welding and electrical students brought in toys, and health occupations contributed various hygiene items. Students, SGA officers, and instructors came together on Friday, November 11 to pack the campus goal of 20 boxes and prepare them to be shipped out. In order to raise money for the shipping cost of the boxes, students sold popcorn during Fridays’ events and had several generous donations from faculty and the community. SGA President Crystal Slater, Vice President Joshua Crooks, and electrical instructor Dennis Dziekan delivered the boxes to The Life Church in order to be shipped to the donation site so they can be sent to children in different parts of the world just in time for Christmas.
