Alternative art, music show set for this weekend

Want something different to do on Saturday night? The Sabine CounterCulture Movement, that group of bliss-filled purveyors of good vibes, are coming together for their first ever audio and visual art extravaganza, which will be held on Saturday, March 31 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the historic Many Train Depot.

“I love the fact that we have so many talented artists in Sabine,” said Daniel Jones, co-host of the Sabine CounterCast, which is an internet-based podcast featuring art, music, activities, and geek/pop culture with a local twist. “I’m glad that the Depot Art Guild will allow us the use of their space to exhibit these young artists. This is absolutely unreal to several of the artists, who may not have received recognition otherwise.”

Zwolle schools welcome resource officer

 

By Daniel Jones, editor

Zwolle Police Chief Daniel Thomas has added a resource officer to the schools that fall under his protection.

“Our children should be able to attend school on a daily basis to get an education and not be afraid,” Thomas said.  “The town council and I have decided it’s time to have a school resource officer both at the school, at extracurricular activities, and at sports. Threats and other behaviors against our kids and teachers will not be tolerated and will be dealt with accordingly.”

Thomas is very adamant about the safety of children students, and as of press time the officer is already in place.

Being chosen as the officer is Randy Rivers, who will work Monday through Friday and at sporting events.

“Let us continue to pray to God that he will continue to keep our schools safe,” Thomas said.  “I am very appreciative to the town council for their full support in the matter.”
