Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

UPSETTING THE WORKS

It was revealed this past week that Jim Bernhard might be buying into the race for governor in 2019. With his enormous business skills and wealth this would upset the applecart if he ran in the Democrat or Republican party. He mentioned running before several times but declined to do so. The last thing Governor Edward’s force wants is a Fortune 500 darling jumping into the race with his own money and splitting up the Democrat vote. It has been said he could toss in $20 million. He is presently a Democrat and is not very likely to change parties.

In 1987 he and two other investors founded the Shaw Group, a corporation providing construction and maintenance services to energy companies. By the time he sold the Shaw Group in 2013 it was worth $3 billion and was on the Fortune 500 list.

New training facility provides safer Sabine

By Daniel Jones

A building is burning outside of Zwolle, but it isn’t what you’d think.

July 12 was a momentous day for the North Sabine Fire District and Sabine Parish as a whole, as the Fire District Regional Training Facility was dedicated with an open house and brief demonstration of how fire fighters will train at the new complex.

“This represents a huge expansion of fire protection training within Sabine and the surrounding areas,” said Nick Spann, chief of the North Sabine Fire District. “We will be able to run a variety of scenarios over and over, which will teach our local fire fighters and first responders how to respond to different situations through muscle memory. It’s just like basketball practice, the more you practice the better you become at the task.”

Professor Cheryl White, Associate Professor of History at Louisiana State University at Shreveport, will explore some of the folklore surrounding the Red River and its historical basis. “The Red River is full of myths and many of them have been researched and preserved in the works by Dr. White.” remarked CRNHA Heritage Ranger Michael Mumaugh.
