TeamLocal musician’s work discovered by UFC fighterPeyton

If you’re an aspiring artist, writer or musician, any kind of publicizing of your works is extremely exciting. One local musician had this dream realized when a UFC fighter took an interest in his song, “Underdog.”

Peyton Long, aka P-Moneyy, of Pleasant Hill is the creator of “Underdog.” He has been creating music off and on for about nine years, but has gotten more consistent in the last few years. His style is influenced by other Louisiana natives such as Kevin Gates, Boosie and Lil Wayne and he has taught himself how to mix and record his music. He started out recording in his homemade studio and released projects throughout his high school career, but his operation has grown and made several connections in the music industry. He has also been in the U.S. Navy for around 8-9 years and is currently stationed in Jacksonville, Fla.

Group of La. legislators call for end to COVID-19 restrictions

Group of La. legislators call for end to COVID-19 restrictions

Louisiana state Rep. Rick Edmonds, R-Baton Rouge.

(The Center Square) — A group of Louisiana legislators is asking Gov. John Bel Edwards to lift rules meant to control the spread of COVID-19.

Rep. Rick Edmonds, a Baton Rouge Republican, sent the Democratic governor a letter making the request, which is endorsed by 33 Republicans, including 3o members of the state House and three state senators. The Louisiana Legislature has 144 members.

Edwards issued an executive order this week that loosened the state’s COVID-19 restrictions, but businesses and events still are under capacity limitations and a statewide mask mandate remains in place. Meanwhile, the governors of Texas and Mississippi announced this week they would lift all COVID-19 mitigation measures in their states.

The second quarter proved to be costly for Florien.

For the second straight season, the Lady Blackcats’ year ends in the Class B semifinals to Fairview as they lost, 61-45.

“It was a good game between two good teams,” Florien coach Dewain Strother said. “Their defense just wore us down and kept us out of our rhythm.”

The Lady Cats shot 30 percent from the floor and committed 23 turnovers but struggled in the second quarter by hitting 3 of 15 shots.

Florien was led by senior Tristaan Ross’s 7 points and 5 rebounds, while sophomore Marleigh Sparks also scored 7 points.

However, the Lady Blackcats did not have an answer for Fairview senior Rylee Jinks, who scored 19 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 6 assists.

“That’s a tough team we played,” Lady Panthers coach Kyle Jinks said. “They’re a lot better than they were at the beginning of the year. Coach Strother does a good job and they made us fight tonight.”

Local residents awarded $5,000 grant by Jersey Mike’s Subs

Quentin and Jacqueline Murray

Quentin and Jacqueline Murray, who live in Many, were awarded one of five $5,000 Sub Abover grants from Jersey Mike’s Subs in recognition of their efforts to make a difference in the local community through The Veteran’s Place in New Llano.

Nearly 5,000 nominations poured in from across the county. The nomination read, in part, “Quentin Murray created and built The Veteran’s Place to help fellow veterans. That morphed into helping the entire community and beyond at the start of Covid, when he organized meals every weekend, plus food boxes.”

Quentin, who served in the U.S. Army for nearly 26 years, and his wife, Jacqueline, established The Veteran’s Place as a nonprofit in 2018. With their motto, “Veterans Helping Veterans,” the organization has served as an important gathering place and resource center offering veteran benefit assistance, community outreach and support, meal programs and food boxes, and fundraisers to fulfill local needs.

"DeeDee" Palmer: Focused on Many's future

Article Image Alt Text

I Claudette “DeeDee” Palmer would like to take this opportunity to announce my candidacy for Alderwoman District C, Town of Many.

I am a lifelong resident of Many, mother of three (Brandon, Krystal, and DeVante Palmer), grandmother, business owner, and concerned citizen. I would like to help our town develop plans to attract industry and develop opportunity zones for entrepreneurs; therefore, give our children the option to remain home and provide a good living for themselves in the Town of Many.

As a business owner, I would like to help the Town of Many make plans to improve economic development, infrastructure projects that are designed to foster growth within our town. NOT just overlaying streets during the spring and digging them up in the summer and fall because of an outdated and crumbling water system.
