DOTD to remove illegally placed signs along Highway 191

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises residents that beginning Monday, January 7, 2019, DOTD maintenance crews in Sabine Parish will be removing illegal signs along the LA 191 corridor.

All illegally placed signs on state right-of-way, regardless of size and mounting location, will be removed and disposed of by DOTD maintenance personnel. Prior to removal, DOTD personnel will be placing red stickers on signs with economic value as required by DOTD policy. An example of a sign with economic value would be a sign constructed of plywood and 2”x 4” studs. Signs of no economic value will not be identified with the red sticker. Examples of signs with no economic value would be a cardboard sign stapled to a wooden utility pole, or inserted into the ground with a wire frame.

Charles Davis and wife Ann have lived in Sabine Parish since 1969.

Come Friday, two of “America’s Greatest Generation” will be honored at a special birthday party at 2 p.m. at Bayou Crawfish Restaurant in downtown Many. They are Charles I.

Mr. Charles I. Davis served in the U.S. Navy from Dec. 16, 1941 until Feb. 26, 1947. He joined at only sixteen years old after the bombing of Pearl Harbor because he said the attack “[peed] me off.” Davis is a native of Alexandria, but has lived in Sabine Parish for almost fifty years.

Tobias Williams named Rising Star

Rising Star Tobias Williams II has lots of attitude...a good, positive attitude. He attributes it to the examples set for him by his family, his high school football coach, and his church family.

“I am a reflection of my family,” Tobias said. “It’s important to me that I set a good example for others.”

The oldest of five children, Tobias is the son of Tobias and Krisha Williams of Many. His mother teaches social studies and science at Many Junior High. His dad works on a land rig in West Texas.

Something happened in his family several years ago that made a lifelong impression on Tobias. He began seeing people, events, challenges and life differently. That’s because his maternal grandmother, Cloteal Polk of Natchitoches, moved in with Tobias’s family where she spent her last year of life.

Holiday favorite “Christmas Vacation” to screen

The comic misadventures of the beleaguered Griswold family continue in “National Lampoon Christmas Vacation” playing at the Many Community Center on Saturday, December 1 at 7 p.m.

The movie is free as always. It’s part of the Movies in Many program sponsored by the Town of Many Cultural District Advisory Committee, Mayor Ken Freeman, and the Town of Many.

Concessions are available for only $1 each.

America’s most dedicated dad, Chevy Chase is determined to stay at home to create “the most fun-filled old-fashioned family Christmas ever” -- but life has a particular way of throwing wet logs on Clark Griswold’s fire.

Suburban family man Clark Griswold gets all a-dither about a family holiday. As is his sentimental nature, he puts too much emphasis on the production of it. He wants nothing less than a “fun, old-fashioned, family Christmas.”
