Hungry for some fried squirrel? The city may have an extra one they don’t need. About 3 p.m. Tuesday the electricity here at the office suddenly went off. I called the Utility Department to tell them. Had to pull the number out of my memory bank because I couldn’t have seen the  phone book while

I need your full attention for a minute. We changed our email address a year or so ago. If you send something to our old address for the newspaper we will never know it. We’ve had that happen several times in the past couple of weeks… that we know of. I have put the new

The highlight of the Picnic for me was having Adrian home. Seemed just as natural as could be. The cats loved it. Bella was her cat first in Shreveport before Adrian had a dog. Caddeaux already knew her from a previous visit. They both spent every night in her room. Sunday night at bedtime Caddeaux

Found it. Vi Clevenger’s directions, which she marked in red on a map of City Cemetery she gave me, were 100% accurate. But I still couldn’t find the gravestone. So, I went back to City Hall just after Vi had left the office. Debbie Potter came to the counter to help me. She readily admitted

Davis is into dwarf hamsters. He thought his mom just had to have a couple, so he deposited a cage on her desk complete with exercise wheel, watering bottle and feed dish a few weeks ago. There’s not room for anything else on her desk, so the cage was soon on the John S. Smith
