Article Image Alt Text

John and Jude Jenkins, ages four and six, eagerly picked up litter along their road east of Ft. Jessup, so they could follow in the example set by their grandparents who have adopted a road by the lake where they pick up litter on a monthly basis.

The Sabine Parish Leaders Against Litter Committee is preparing for the third annual fall, parish wide “Stash Your Trash” Bash on Saturday, September 21. Volunteers from civic and other groups such as fishing teams, hunting clubs and deer leases, churches and their Youth Groups, 4-H and other school groups along with individuals are needed to work with zone managers around the parish to pick up as much roadside litter as possible. The event will be from 8:00 a.m. until noon on the third Saturday of September.

Recently, John and Jude Jenkins (ages 6 & 4), whose parents are Hollie and Buzz Jenkins, picked up trash along Big N Road, east of Fort Jessup. They told their Dad they “wanted to be good citizens like Pop & Nanny” (Winston & Paula Hodge) who pick up trash along Highway 1215 every month. Thank you to the Hodges for being good examples for their grandchildren to follow in respecting our environment.

Many Depot to get a bit more patriotic

Many city streets crew prepares the hole to install the depot flagpole.

Article Image Alt Text

Many’s street crew and Many’s alderman at large were pleased when work on the Depot flagpole was finished. Brocato joked that everyone needed to go home and take a cold shower since the men had worked in the installation for hours in 100 degree temperatures.

Many now has a flagpole at the Many Depot and a large, brightly lit American flag will be flying there soon.

The best news? It didn’t cost the town a penny. MidSouth Bank donated the flagpole, Crittenden’s Garage is donating the flag, and Hurd Electric is donating the nighttime lighting.

Many’s Alderman at Large Mary Brocato is thrilled about how donors stepped up to make the patriotic display possible. Brocato said, “We’ve worked so hard to restore the historic old depot, and we wanted a flag flying in front of it so badly. It was going to be expensive, but our donors took care of that problem and gave us everything we need. Our city street crew, under the supervision of Mike Moore, worked hard to remove the flagpole at Florien’s MidSouth branch, bring it to Many, and then installed it last week. The heat was terrible, but they never stopped until that flagpole was standing tall.”
