The second quarter proved to be costly for Florien.

For the second straight season, the Lady Blackcats’ year ends in the Class B semifinals to Fairview as they lost, 61-45.

“It was a good game between two good teams,” Florien coach Dewain Strother said. “Their defense just wore us down and kept us out of our rhythm.”

The Lady Cats shot 30 percent from the floor and committed 23 turnovers but struggled in the second quarter by hitting 3 of 15 shots.

Florien was led by senior Tristaan Ross’s 7 points and 5 rebounds, while sophomore Marleigh Sparks also scored 7 points.

However, the Lady Blackcats did not have an answer for Fairview senior Rylee Jinks, who scored 19 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 6 assists.

“That’s a tough team we played,” Lady Panthers coach Kyle Jinks said. “They’re a lot better than they were at the beginning of the year. Coach Strother does a good job and they made us fight tonight.”

Local residents awarded $5,000 grant by Jersey Mike’s Subs

Quentin and Jacqueline Murray

Quentin and Jacqueline Murray, who live in Many, were awarded one of five $5,000 Sub Abover grants from Jersey Mike’s Subs in recognition of their efforts to make a difference in the local community through The Veteran’s Place in New Llano.

Nearly 5,000 nominations poured in from across the county. The nomination read, in part, “Quentin Murray created and built The Veteran’s Place to help fellow veterans. That morphed into helping the entire community and beyond at the start of Covid, when he organized meals every weekend, plus food boxes.”

Quentin, who served in the U.S. Army for nearly 26 years, and his wife, Jacqueline, established The Veteran’s Place as a nonprofit in 2018. With their motto, “Veterans Helping Veterans,” the organization has served as an important gathering place and resource center offering veteran benefit assistance, community outreach and support, meal programs and food boxes, and fundraisers to fulfill local needs.

Ft. Jesup Society Children of American Revolution host state conference

Louisiana Society members attend State Conference at Fort Jesup State Historic Site.

The Fort Jesup Society recently welcomed C.A.R. members from across the state to celebrate their service and achievement during 2020. Louisiana Societies represented were Ann Fairfax Society, Baton Rouge; Fort Atkinson Society, Lake Charles; Captain William Pickles Society, Covington; and Fort Jesup Society, Many. State President Nicholas Tarver chose as his state project Why No Man’s Land and members were encouraged throughout the year to learn more about the area and its historical importance. The State Conference showcased the area and members learned even more with hands on activities at two state parks.

The group met at Los Adaes to begin their adventure into No Man’s Land. The Heritage Ranger, Logan Schlatre, gave a brief history of the mission, the fort, and the Indians and settlers of the area to the group. Members then enjoyed a basket weaving craft indoors.

Article Image Alt Text

I Claudette “DeeDee” Palmer would like to take this opportunity to announce my candidacy for Alderwoman District C, Town of Many.

I am a lifelong resident of Many, mother of three (Brandon, Krystal, and DeVante Palmer), grandmother, business owner, and concerned citizen. I would like to help our town develop plans to attract industry and develop opportunity zones for entrepreneurs; therefore, give our children the option to remain home and provide a good living for themselves in the Town of Many.

As a business owner, I would like to help the Town of Many make plans to improve economic development, infrastructure projects that are designed to foster growth within our town. NOT just overlaying streets during the spring and digging them up in the summer and fall because of an outdated and crumbling water system.
