Veterans Day: a day of dedication

On November 11, we honored our veterans both living and dead for the sacrifices that they have made in protecting our country.

As long as we have the great patriotic men and women volunteering to serve our country, we will never be overcome by outside sources. If we falter and lose our freedoms it will be from internal strife.

Because of our veterans, we enjoy the greatest freedoms in the world. We can worship as we please and pursue any opportunity that we desire.

List of locals owed money in paper today

In today’s paper starting on Page 14 you’ll find a list of Sabine Parish residents owed money by the state of Louisiana.

The state currently has millions of dollars it wants to return to its rightful owners, but first it has to locate those to whom money is owed, according to State Treasurer John M. Schroder Sr.

The list in today’s paper shows Sabine Parish residents who have unclaimed property of various types on record in the state Treasurer’s office. Businesses from all over the country are required by law to report unclaimed property to the Treasury each year. Sometimes, the address the company has on record is no longer correct. Funds may be in the form of cash, stocks, bonds, securities, insurance benefits or other. The assets are reported in the name and last known address of the owner(s).

Border-to-border bike event to roll through Many October 25

Ian Goff will arrive in Many, on Friday, October 25 as part of his 2,000-mile bicycle ride across the United States.

His journey began at Niagara Falls, New York, on the Canadian border October 6, and he plans to arrive at the Mexican border in Del Rio, Texas on November 2.

The reason he has made this personal challenge a public event—to help remember and restore the victims of the shooting which occurred at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church nearly two years ago --is as impressive as his 28-day, 2,000-mile journey. With his bicycle trek across the nation, Goff has chosen to honor and remember the individuals who lost their lives in the deadliest mass shooting in the history of Texas.
