Happy Hours craft classes increasingly popular

Happy Hours means different things to different folks. For Many, Sabine Parish, and surrounding area residents, it can mean taking interactive classes at the Many Depot Art Guild for a few hours on Saturday afternoons. Class participants can take photography, painting, arts and crafts, and jewelry design/making classes, which are offered on four Saturday afternoons each month from 1-4 p.m. The Many Cultural District Advisory Committee, Many Mayor Ken Freeman, and the Many

Town Council agreed that folks in the area needed more activities and events so they would not have to travel but could stay at home for special events, musical concerts, free movies, art shows, and now Happy Hours classes.

Maxie murder verdict under scrutiny

Melvin Maxie

By Daniel Jones, editor

Citing several inconsistencies in last year’s trial of Melvin Maxie, which resulted in his being convicted of second-degree murder, defense attorneys are expected to be back in court soon asking the court to consider whether to order a new trial, modify the verdict to the conviction of a lesser offense, or grant a post verdict judgment of acquittal.

The documents were filed by the defense, attorney Casey Secor and the Louisiana Capital Assistance Center in early January, but District Attorney Don Burkett asked for and received a continuance until February 7.

The defense has issued a subpoena to every juror from the case and both alternates.  Their statements have been taken and their request will be presented to the court  on Wednesday of next week.

The 442-page filing holds a number of contentious allegations, especially toward the jurors and District Attorney Don Burkett.

For the fourth time in ten years, the Sabine Parish Tourist Commission has won the Louey, the top state tourism award.

“It’s because we have a lot of great people that put out the effort for the economic benefit it brings our community,” says Linda Curtis-Sparks, Director of the Sabine Parish Tourist Commission. She explained that the Louey Awards presented this week at the Louisiana Travel Association’s Annual Membership Luncheon in Lafayette are judged out of state based on the Tourist Commission’s results for their marketing efforts.
