The Authentic Bonnie & Clyde Festival Committee invites you to join us in Gibsland, La. on Friday night May 19, 2017 and all day Saturday, May 20, 2017 for our 25th festival as we take you back to 1934 with events planned for the Bonnie and Clyde Festival. This year’s festival is being held in memory of L. J. “Boots” Hinton who was the son of Deputy Sheriff Ted Hinton who was a participant in the actual ambush. You will witness five factual reenactments of mock bank robberies and shoot outs in the streets! This festival began in May 1993 because visitors were stopping and inquiring at Gibsland City Hall and the local gas stations for information about Bonnie & Clyde and requesting instructions to the marker at the ambush site.

Freddie Shows speaks to Kiwanis Club, Tuesday, April 25

Freddie Shows, general manager and part-owner of Johnny’s Pizza, spoke to the Kiwanis club Tuesday, April 25, 2017. Shows has been self-employed since the age of 19. He has also been a preacher at the Jonesboro Church of Christ for 35 years. He opened a saw shop in Winnfield in 1985, an outsider from Jonesboro. After closing the saw shop he built several houses, built cabinets, and drove a truck. The Winnfield Johnny’s Pizza is store #4 for Shows and his partners. The others are in Jonesboro, Pineville and Alexandria. The Winnfield franchise was purchased at the same time as the Jonesboro franchise 6 ½ years ago so it has been in the works for a while. However, after Jonesboro they put in at Pineville and Alexandria because they thought there would be more business in a bigger place.

Walmart Generosity Plus Rotary Dedication

One of the many axioms used in today’s vernacular is the phrase “It takes a village to raise a child.” That attitude is particularly evident in the partnership between Wal-Mart and the Winnfield Rotary Club. Through the philanthropy of the international Wal-Mart chain, generous check of $1500 was presented to Rotary President Jennifer Vidrine by local Store Assistant Manager Roy Mercer.

This grant money from Wal-Mart has allowed the Rotarians to work tirelessly to help provide for school uniforms for local students in need, to distribute a personal copy of a Dictionary for all 3rd graders, to sponsor leadership training for high school students at Camp RYLA, and to enable educational assistance for students with dyslexia.

Pea Patch Gallery to HostPhotography ShowThrough End of May

The Pea Patch Gallery is hosting a photography show by local professional photographer, Joe Stroud. The show will be up through the end of May, and is of special interest to locals.

On display are several of Mr. Stroud’s wildlife images. They are large images, with some even printed on canvas.

When asked about how he became interested in wildlife photography, Mr. Stroud said, “As a child growing up in north Louisiana, the outdoors played a pivotal role in forming my passion for nature and wildlife. Like most kids, spending time hunting and fishing were the first steps to understanding the woods, the movements and behavior of its inhabitants. My passion for photography began when I saw Jim Brandenburg’s image, “White Wolf Leaping” in National Geographic magazine.”
