The Calvin Lady Cougars Advance to the Class C State Finals

The Lady Cougars defeated the Ebarb Lady Rebels in semi-final action yesterday at Frasch Park in Sulphur, LA. 

In the top of the first, the Lady Cougars let jittery nerves get the best of them and the Lady Rebels scored two runs on a couple of errors. That was the only time in the game the Lady Cougars would trail. 

In the bottom of the first Trawick drew a lead-off walk and Carter singled to right field, both scored on a Camp single trying the Lady Rebels 2-2. Bevill and Martin both singled putting the Lady Cougars up 5-2 after one complete inning of play. 

Barnes singled in the second and scored on hits by Camp and Bevill. The Lady Cougars were up 6-4 after two innings of play. 

That score was too close for comfort. The Lady Cougars didn’t score again until the fifth inning. The Lady Cougars loaded and cleared the bases twice in the fifth with base clearing doubles by Abels and Carter putting the Lady Cougars up 12-4.

They sealed the deal in the sixth inning running the Lady Rebels with singles by Bevill and Barber and a bunt by Martin. The final score was 14-4.

The Lady Cougars will take on the Georgetown Lady Bulldogs in the Class C Final Championship game on Saturday at 11:00 AM. The game will be held at Frasch Park in Sulphur, LA on field 10.

The Lady Cougars hope you will make the drive to Sulphur to watch them as they fight for a state championship.

Parish Fire Board Continues to Undermine Success at Winn Parish Fire District 3 – Will the Police Jury Help?

The Winn Parish Police Jury (the Jury) met in a special called meeting Thursday, April 22, 2021. The sole item on the agenda was to discuss issues regarding the Winn Parish Fire Board (the Board).

Winn Parish Police Jury President Josh McAllister started the meeting by stating that he received calls from fire board members with concerns that morale is very low at Winn Parish Fire District 3 (District 3). 

District 3 Chief Harry Foster addressed the Jury with concerns about morale at the fire district. According to Foster, moves by the Winn Parish Fire Board have created a toxic environment at District 3. 

Foster outlined that recent issues include some board members wanting to cut back to having one person on duty. “We could do it, but fire protection would be slim to none. You can imagine how depressing it is for the full-time fire personnel not to know if they have a job or not,” said Foster. One person on duty is unsafe; the very minimum you would need is four, and that’s just marginally safe, explained Foster. With the Board continually suggesting that we cut back full-time employees, people don’t know if they will have a job or not, and morale is down. 

The fire district currently has four full-time personnel: Chief Foster and three full-time firemen/firewomen, and 13 part-time employees. There are three people on duty Monday – Friday from 8 AM – 8 PM, from 8 PM – 8 AM every day of the week; two people are on duty. There are two people on duty 8 AM – 8 PM Saturday & Sunday. 

Some fire personnel works 24 or even 48-hour shifts to ensure that shifts are covered. However, it’s increasingly difficult to get people to work extra shifts with the current morale conditions, explained Foster.

Adding to the morale issues is a situation last year when the Board striped two employees of rank and a pay raise they had had for two years. Stripping rank and pay was not due to any fault of the employees but because the Board disagreed with how the employees were given the promotions. 

Foster also stated that one employee quit outright earlier this year, saying that “he just couldn’t take the environment any longer.” Issues with this particular employee stemmed from vacation pay that the Board refused to pay.

“The firemen/firewomen and the citizens of Winn Parish deserve better; we need help,” said Foster

Other concerns Foster outlined:

  • Need more volunteers
  • Need more training
  • Need more safety equipment

The Winn Parish Fire District 3 Board consists of seven members. Three appointed by the Jury and four appointed by the four villages in the parish. The current board members are:

Calvin appointee – Ronald O’Bryan – term expired 12/31/2020 (still on Board)

Dodson appointee – John Holden – term expired 12/31/2020 (still on Board)

Sikes appointee – Buddy King – term expires 12/31/2021

Atlanta appointee- Open at time of the meeting

Appointed by Jury 1 – Bill Thompson – newly appointed in 2021

Appointed by Jury 2 – Mark John – term expires 12/31/2021

Appointed by Jury 3 – Brad Cooper – newly appointed in 2020

The Jury has scheduled a special meeting for Thursday, May 6, 2020, at 6 PM, where the Board members will speak to the Jury.

The City of Winnfield Employees Speak to the Rotary Club of Winnfield

Guest speaker for the Rotary Club of Winnfield meeting at noon on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, was Katina Sanders Smith, current city clerk for the City of Winnfield. Ms. Smith is a native of Winnfield, who has worked for the city for the last ten years. She initially worked as city tax clerk, and later advanced to the position of city clerk, in which she oversees the city’s daily operations and records management. Ms. Smith is a member of the Louisiana Municipal Clerks Association and the International Institute of Municipal Clerks, which keeps her current in best practices for municipal clerks and legislation related to municipal clerks’ duties and responsibilities. She is also working toward obtaining her Municipal Clerk’s certification. Katina is also the current Vice President of the Dugdemona Festival Board and a member of the board of directors of Trinity Medical Clinics.

Ms. Smith was accompanied to the meeting by the city inspector for the last 21 years, Mr. Andre Bass. Ms. Smith spoke about keeping the city clean and neat, and about blighted properties around town whose owners have not properly maintained the premises and have allowed it to become run down and overgrown. She said Winnfield has an ordinance governing the condition and appearance of property providing that lawns may not be allowed to grow higher than 18 inches. The owner is obliged to have the lawn mowed when it reaches 18 inches.

Ms. Smith said the city sends letters in April of each year to inform property owners whose property violates the 18-inch provision to clean up their property in accordance with the ordinance by a certain date. If the work is not done by the deadline, the city does the work to bring the property in compliance, and the property owner is charged for the city’s services. The properties in violation of the ordinance are identified by the city inspector as well as by citizen complaints, which are then confirmed by the city inspector.

The city clerk said there are numerous parcels of property in the city limits which have been adjudicated to Winn Parish because of unpaid property taxes, and the parish has had difficulty maintaining so many properties.  However, the city and parish are now working together to get the properties that are owned by the parish cleaned up in compliance with the city ordinance.

Ms. Smith cautioned that a citizen may not go into his neighbor’s yard and clean up the property, so if he wants to help keep his neighborhood neat and clean, he should call the city and give the city the address of the property which is an eyesore. A citizen might also organize a voluntary neighborhood cleanup and get the entire neighborhood involved in making sure all properties are well kept.

Ms. Smith also said another way the city of Winnfield strives to keep the city neat and clean is by holding city cleanups twice a year and getting volunteers to come and work together all on the same day to clean the streets and ditches of the various neighborhoods. The two annual city-wide cleanup events were begun when the mayor was Kiah Beville, and the practice has been continued by the current administration.

Mr. Bass stated that properties that have been abandoned or neglected by their owners and allowed to deteriorate to the point of being structurally unsafe or unfit to live in could eventually be torn down, but the property must be judicially condemned first, which takes at least several months and may take years.

The Rotary Club of Winnfield meets every Wednesday at Noon for lunch at Lynda’s Country Kitchen.

Blessed: The Burning Bush

If you close your eyes and imagine a thirty day calendar, I can tell you the numerical dates of each day for the next three months. My mind eats, sleeps and breaths a calendar while making sure that everything is accounted for on the appropriate date. Attention must be paid so no balls are dropped.

Being a single parent who works three jobs (I love saying that because I consider none of the three actual work), a calendar has become part of my DNA. It is also somewhat of a security blanket. My mind is consumed with schedules for church, family time, drop offs and pick ups for sports and social events for my daughter, meetings, and the occasional doctor’s appointment for her or a random hair appointment for myself.

There is so very little room for deviating from my calendar because something.

On this particularly cloudy and overcast day, my schedule was packed. But, I was feeling blessed because I was relying on someone else to take my youngest for a sports physical at her Pediatrician’s office in Ruston. I really do not think that I have missed more than a hand full of doctor’s appointments since both children have been born, so mommy guilt was not rearing it’s ugly head.

Just as I was finishing a meeting in Grant Parish I was notified that my blessing had backed out of their commitment. The blessing no longer felt like a blessing. I now had to rush back to Natchitoches, keep a hair appointment that had already been moved a time or two, make the doctor’s appointment and get the child back before Volleyball practice started.

On the ride to Ruston, as my daughter fell asleep, it gave me time to pray and seek God about my stress. Yes, it was partially self-induced, I was mostly angry at myself for allowing me to rely on someone who has not always been the pillar of consistency. Was I trying to do too much? Would I ever have good hair? Would I ever make it to a gym again? Am I a bad mother? How does a single mom with multiple children handle life?

I was truly feeling like a poor planner who could not rely on anyone other than herself. This was going to be an epic pity party once I found the time to enjoy it.

During that drive, I literally prayed that God would send me a sign that I was going to be okay and that all of the tiny tasks set before me in this life would get accomplished. This was more like a desperate plea from an emotionally stressed woman who was questioning her role in life. I just needed a sign. One small sign. Or, a burning bush.

When the appointment was over I felt a slight burden being lifted. Life was looking up and the sun was beginning to peek through the clouds. It was truly becoming a beautiful day.

As we were leaving the clinic I spoke to a few of the patients sitting outside waiting on their group transportation. One particular lady with a fragile smile caught my eye. She kept staring at me so I simply said, “Isn’t it a beautiful day?”

She quickly replied, “Come here, I need to tell you something.” I obeyed and headed in her direction.

She went on to say, “Beauty is everywhere you look if you slow down to notice it.” I agreed with her and was just starting to move on when she asked me if I had a twin. Perplexed at her question and with a puzzled look, I verified that I was not a twin.

With so much intention and wisdom in her eyes she firmly said, “So that means you came into this world alone and you are equipped to handle anything that comes your way all by yourself, you don’t need anyone else.”

On any other regular day that I had not freshly prayed for a burning bush sign, I would have merely appreciated her wit and moved on. This was so much more than wittiness. This was my burning bush. This precious woman had no idea how much my soul needed these words. God was letting me know that his grace was sufficient for me and always there for me. God didn’t send me a burning bush that day. He sent a woman full of strength, knowledge and confidence to know that God always shows up on time. He is never late.

I am still realizing that the more I rely on my calendar and my own strength, that I am not allowing any room for trusting that my Savior will take care of my concerns and meet my needs as they arise.

“So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”. – Isaiah 41:10

Angler’s Perspective – An Anglers Learning Curve

As a young fisherman growing up in East Texas during the 70’s, there wasn’t a lot of material available on how to be a better angler. Sure, you could go down to the local library and maybe find a few books to check out but nothing that really made you sit up and take notice. Then came along Bassmaster Magazine, oh my Lord, are you kidding me? Wow…I mean it was the greatest thing to ever happen to bass fishing!

Finally, a monthly publication dedicated to nothing but bass fishing. It definitely shortened the learning curve of my generation. It had full color sketches of baits and techniques, how to fish wood, how to fish hydrilla (grass), and even how to make the proper cast. It had tips and pointers on how to catch fish under all conditions. It gave the results of all B.A.S.S. (Bass Angler Sportsman’s Society) tournaments and how the pro anglers caught their fish. It even had “best times to fish” calendar for every day of the month based on the moon phases. I mean are you kidding me, the moon phases. Who knew the moon had an impact on when a bass would feed or not feed. This was pure science for those of you that think bass fishing is all luck. Leave it to Bassmaster Magazine to be the educational leader of the outdoors world. I would literally sit by the mailbox near the end of each month just waiting for mine to be delivered. Nothing lit my fire for reading more than Bassmaster Magazine!  It’s probably responsible for correcting my dyslexia issue I had in my early elementary years. That’s how good Bassmaster Magazine was and still is today.

Then came VHS tapes and so many videos that showed live footage of catching bass. Videos showing live underwater footage of bass in their natural environment. They had one called “Big Mouth” that showed an angler fishing a crankbait with two sets of treble hooks and a bass inhaling the lure and spitting it out and the angler never knew he had a bite. It was insane to think a bass could actually do this! Videos took bass fishing to a whole other level. They had professional bass fishermen like Bill Dance, Virgil Ward, John Fox, Ricky Green, Bobby & Billy Murray and one angler who many consider to be the best angler ever Roland Martin doing video presentations. “How to” videos designed to shorten your learning curve and make you a better angler. Of course, if you had a VCR to play your VHS tapes, you were considered wealthy. But once they became more affordable, everyone had one. You could even go to Blockbuster Video Store and rent these bass fishing tapes. How cool was that?

For today’s anglers, it’s a whole other world with the amount of bass fishing videos, books and magazines available. Oh, then came this thing called the internet which has more information than hundreds of thousands of libraries. It’s an information highway that has given anglers of today the ability to look up any topic about every facet of bass fishing. There are even videos from average anglers that like to share their fishing experiences and information via GoPro cameras. So, the learning curve for today’s anglers has been cut in half. Instead of taking years to accumulate knowledge like it has for my generation, today’s generation can learn the same amount of information in just a few weeks. But there’s one thing I’ve learned over my 40 plus years of bass fishing experience: there’s no replacing time on the water. No book, no video and no internet can replace time on the water. This is how an average angler can become a great angler. Till next time, don’t forget to set the hook!

Social Media Bill Passes Through State Senate Committee

By T. Scott Boatright

The Louisiana Senate’s Commerce, Consumer Protection and International Affairs Committee on Wednesday moved forward a bill that if passed would allow state residents to sue major social media companies that are believed to intentionally delete or censor political or religious speech.

The bill passed by a vote of 4-2

Senate Bill 196 by Sen. Jay Morris, R-West Monroe, is aimed at websites with 75 million members or more, specifically meaning Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. If passed, plaintiffs could claim actual damages and punitive damages up to $75,000.

The bill is a Louisiana version of the Stop Social Media Censorship Act, which 29 states have considered similar legislation for though none have enacted it into law.

Center Square of Louisiana reported that Eric Peterson, who works on technology issues for the Pelican Institute for Public Policy, said the bill would violate Section 230 and the First Amendment of the Constitution and could also affect other social medias like eBay and Shopify that might not want to host anything dealing with any kind of political commentary.

“They have the right to edit their content as they see fit,” Center Square reported Peterson as saying.

LDWF Captures Black Bear in Port Allen; Reminds Public to be Aware

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries personnel captured an adult male Louisiana black bear in Port Allen on Tuesday night. Because the bear had become habituated and too reliant on human food sources, the decision was made to euthanize the animal.

“We’ve worked so hard to re-establish the Louisiana black bear population in our state and any time we have to euthanize one it is a hard decision,’’ LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet said. “This is always a last resort in these cases. Unfortunately, bears like this one, that have become too dependent on human food sources, cannot be successfully relocated. Public safety is our utmost concern and that’s why this difficult call was made.’’
When a bear has learned to access human sourced food associated with residential areas, it can cause a behavior progression that becomes a human safety risk, LDWF Biologist Supervisor Scott Durham said. This particular bear demonstrated dangerous behaviors in his search for human sourced food, therefore the decision was made to euthanize the bear.

The 200-pound bear was trapped by LDWF personnel Tuesday around 8:30 p.m. The bear initially appeared in Port Allen on Saturday and returned to the neighborhood area on Tuesday, rummaging through garbage cans and porches for food. LDWF strives in all human-bear conflicts to educate the public about removing all the attractants that have caused bears to stray into human populated areas. However, because some have become dangerously human habituated, that isn’t always possible, as was the case this time.

Here are some practices that will limit human-bear conflicts:

  • Never feed or approach bears.
  • Secure food, garbage, and recycling.
  • Remove bird feeders when bears are active.
  • Never leave pet food outdoors.
  • Clean and store BBQ grills.
  • Let your neighbors know if you see bears in your area.

Bill to Raise Teacher Retirement Age Sparks Debate

By T. Scott Boatright

A Louisiana Senate bill proposing to raise the age for teachers and others to qualify for full retirement benefits from 62 years old to 67 has stoked the ire of teachers, superintendents and leaders of the state retirement systems.

The bill would only apply to future teachers and is designed to make the retirement system, especially for existing teachers, “stronger and healthier.”

But opponents of the bill feel the new rules would make it harder to shore up the ranks of teachers at a time when staffing state classrooms is becoming more and more difficult.

The Louisiana Federation of Teachers, the Louisiana Association of Educators, Louisiana Association of School Superintendents, Gov. John Bel Edwards’ office, the state AFL-CIO, the Retired State Employees Association and the Teachers’ Retirement System of Louisiana have all announced their opposition to the bill as has the the Louisiana State Employees’ Retirement System.

Groups reportedly supporting the legislation include the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry and the state branch of the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

The bill barely cleared the Senate Retirement Committee 4-3 on April 19. If passed it would increase the retirement age to 67 and apply to those who enter the teaching profession or state workforce on or after July 1 of this year.

123 Boaters Certified During “Boating Education Lagniappe Day”

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) certified 123 boaters statewide during its 10th annual “Boating Education Lagniappe Day” on April 24.
