Bobby Williams

Bobby Williams of Florien recalled the excitement of inauguration day in 1953, which he attended while enrolled in Officer School at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia.

“In the fall of 1952, I had returned from overseas duty and was stationed near Washington, D.C.,” he stated.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower had been elected president of the United States to replace President Harry S. Truman.

“Our officer’s school was ordered to enter a unit in the inauguration parade,” he recalled.

He did not remember how but managed to be relieved of the parade duty.

State’s unemployed to begin receiving $300 federal benefit boost

(The Center Square) – Unemployed Louisiana residents have begun receiving an additional $300 in weekly benefits provided by the federal government, the Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) said.

The LWC has distributed about $7 billion to nearly 700,000 Louisianans since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the commission said. Most of that money has consisted of federal dollars, although the state’s unemployment insurance trust fund was tapped out during the pandemic, forcing the state to borrow from the federal government to pay legally required benefits.

Though the original federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act pro-grams that made the additional benefits available expired Dec. 26, the replacement bill was signed the following day and recipients will not miss a payment, the LWC said. CARES Act recipients will have their prior claim restored and will be able to continue receiving benefits as before.

Cindy Lewing

Cindy Lewing, principal of Zwolle Elementary School, is the 2020-2021 Sabine Parish Principal of the Year.

The school year has been challenging for ZES, which is home to Pre-K through sixth-grade students, dealing with both the COVID-19 pandemic closures in the spring and re-opening in fall. Still, she continued to lead the school and help bring along the construction and completion of a new state of the art elementary wing and administrative offices with the latest security features, which opened to students and staff this school year.

“My greatest accomplishments at ZES are introducing and implementing ‘Leader in Me’ and educated ZES students on how to be leaders in the classroom today and leaders of the community tomorrow,” Lewing said. “ZES’s school performance score (SPS) is currently a 63.8, a 2.4 increase over the previous 2018 SPS. ZES earned an ‘A’ letter grade for student progress in 2018 and 2019.

Louisiana to get $342.2 million to promote broadband investment

Louisiana to get $342.2 million to promote broadband investment

(The Center Square) – Thirteen broadband providers in Louisiana will share $342.2 million in federal dollars meant to promote highspeed internet access in areas where it’s not currently available.

The program is meant to subsidize development of internet infrastructure in areas where there aren’t enough potential customers to otherwise justify the investment.

A total of $9.2 billion was doled out nationwide to 180 bidders, the Federal Communications Commission says. Providers must meet periodic buildout requirements that will require them to reach all assigned locations within six years.

Business: Finished

Business: Finished

After a six year wait, the Many Tigers have climbed back on top of the Class 2A mountain after a resounding 16-13 win over the Kinder Yellowjackets on December 27.

“We knew coming here that it was going to be a dogfight,” said Many Head Coach Jess Curtis. “You have to be able to make one more play than those guys and you can’t blink. I don’t think those guys did tonight.”

The Tigers were just not going to be denied that night. Outside of a 59 yard rush for a touchdown, the Tiger defense held Kinder to 46 yards rushing on 22 carries. Many held Kinder to under 200 yards of total offense, with two interceptions.

Local attorney helps Mystikal beat rap

Rapper Mystikal, Michael Tyler, right, and Attorney Verity Gentry leave the Caddo Parish Courthouse after a Grand Jury returned a no true bill, declining all charges against Tyler.

Attorney Verity Gentry and Many native, who recently opened a law office here, announced that Michael Tyler of New Orleans, better known as Grammy-nominated rapper Mystikal, has been cleared of first degree rape and second degree kidnapping charges by a Caddo Parish grand jury. If convicted of rape, Tyler would have faced a mandatory life sentence.

“I am thankful to the Caddo District Attorney for re-presenting my case to the grand jury. I have maintained my innocence from day one and was confident the truth would come to light,” Tyler said. “I am also thankful for my legal team – Verity Gentry, Joel Pearce and Timothy Yazbeck for their work on my case. I look forward to getting back to work, making music and performing,” the rapper shared.
