Winnfield natives return to community to give back on first annual field day

Childhood friends and entrepreneurs Keundric Dooley, Zan Johnson and Donald Alexander will be hosting the first Winn Field day program on July 31, with a kick off party on July 30.

They hope to make it an annual event that Winn Parish children can look forward to for years to come.

The field day will host a mini boot camp free of charge, a softball tournament that all can attend and a back to school giveaway where the three will give out free school supplies to children returning back to school.

The three graduated from Winnfield Senior High School Dooley in 2003 and Alexander and Johnson in 2002.

NSU alumna Quantia Fletcher playing leading role in promoting and preserving African­American history

Article Image Alt Text

One day Quantia “Key” Fletcher found that years of study and work led her to the right career.

The Northwestern State University alumna was working for the National Park Service as a guide at the Cane River Creole National Historical Park near Natchitoches when her future became clearer. Her job included meeting with park visitors from around the world sharing Louisiana history

“There would be mornings that I would walk the acres of land opening the historic structures for guests and imagine what it must have been like to live and work on that site both enslaved and free,” said Fletcher. “The place engulfed me. The job spoke to me. I knew the work was important. It was at this site that I realized that I had found my place and passion in storytelling, history and preservation.”

Natchitoches artist unveils “Faith” monument

Natchitoches artist James Borders unveiled a sculpture that honors the memory of his late wife, Lisa, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2018 at age 49. The soaring metal monument, “Faith,” stands about 40 feet tall at Trinity Baptist Church in Natchitoches and was two years in the making. The sculpture also honors Avis Borders Fletcher, James’ mother, and Margaret Pauline Chesser, Lisa’s mother. Both passed in 2020.

At the June 19 unveiling, which drew a crowd of family and friends wearing pink for breast cancer awareness, Borders explained the concept behind the sculpture.

“The central structure, the rectangle, represents the church,” he said. “It contains the trinity that is symbolized by three spears. The church is open, with the negative space, to always represent new flocks and being able to let them in. There are seven arcs that represent the creation and the day of rest. The two vertical arcs if you look to one side, you can see is the fish symbol.”

Open letter from the Ted Wold and Family

To all essential workers,

The purpose of this letter is to recognize and pay tribute to you, the essential worker.

For the past fifteen months, we have faced a succession of disastrous events.

The Covid-19 golbal pandemic, months of lockdowns, two major hurricanes, days of power otages, and hte to cap it off, Winn Parish expereinced an ice and now storm that once again tried to paralyze us.

Through it all there was one group of people that demonstrated the most selfless of characteristics - - the essence of “service above self.”

These people were on the front line, the unseen workers, every day exposing themselves and their family to servicing us.

Stop and think where would we be without them?
