Patchwork

By Donna Smith Ammons

I nearly walked my legs off in New Orleans last month, while on a trip with friends.

We parked in a parking garage by Harrah’s at the end of Canal Street and then hopped on the trolley to the French Market.

We walked through the open air market, looking at all kinds of trinkets, carvings, silly hats and more. And then we walked through the stores in the French Market. I had to step in all the shops and look around. I found lots that I could buy, but refrained myself, since I knew I had a long way to carry my purchases.

I stayed in the toy store a while, looking at all the puppets and trying them out; pointing out books that my grandson would like; and reminiscing about all the old games we played as children.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

By Pete Abington

WHERE’S THE LINE? Listening to our politicians talk, education is by far the priority. Looking at what is actually happening, it is nothing to be proud of. The overall well-being of children in Louisiana ranks next to last in the nation. This is based on the annual Kid’s Count report from the Annie B. Casey Foundation and it shows that things just might get worse. The report also showed the percentage of children who could be “under-counted” in the next census. This would make matters even worse as it would negate those people receiving funding for health, education and other assistance.

According to the study, 36% of the children under the age of five in Louisiana live in “hard to count” census tracts because of poverty, broken homes and other factors. The national average in that category is 23%.

Tigers take down Peabody, Marksville

By Daniel Jones

Following a 29-20 win against Natchitoches Central in the jamboree, the Many Tigers are off to a great start by taking out the Peabody Warhorses 48- 14 before completely shutting out Marksville 49-0 to begin the regular season.

The game away at Peabody in Alexandria was a decisive win to start the season, with Shacori Collier, who is committed to playing football for Army, getting the first touchdown of the season on a 20-yard touchdown run. A successful point attempt by new kicker Hunter Lafollette put the score at 7-0.

Their next possession didn’t yield much, as it ended with a punt. However, the defense stepped up big, with a huge tackle by Tavier Wiliams put the quarterback six yards behind the line of scrimmage.

Anna Alberta Craighead Stroud

Anna Alberta Craighead Stroud, 96, passed into heavenly eternity Saturday, August 25, 2018, while being tenderly cared for at the Passages in New Orleans. Alberta was graced with long-life, health, and a sharp mind. Before relocating to Mandeville five years ago, she was a long-time resident of Many. She and her husband, Danewood, spent most of their days and lives dreaming about raising up the next generation of young men through the Royal Rangers program. Not having any natural children of their own, this sparked a love and enthusiasm for the Royal Rangers, which provided a platform for them to help mentor and “parent” thousands of young men into their destinies. Alberta’s natural, servant demeanor effortlessly served this mission well. Alberta was the eighth child out of 13 children born to Rufus and Bessie Collins Craighead. She was born in Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee, and eventually moved with her family to Oklahoma.
