Judge Staci Wiley introduced guest speaker Clerk of Court Chesney Baxley at the March 26th Kiwanis club meeting. Ms. Baxley worked as City for Clerk for a number of years for Judge Wiley. The Clerk of Court’s office is in charge of the courthouse according to Judge Wiley.

Ms. Baxley spoke to the club shortly after her election as Clerk of Court. After her election 2 people left the clerks office and there was no money to replace them. For a year the office only had 3 employees. One handled civil, one handled criminal, and one to do everything else.

The police jury came to her assistance and provided 4 new computers that were badly needed. They still need 2 more. This computer software has made in big difference in the services that can be provided.

As of March 5th there have been 3841 missions. They fly into the smaller airports in these large cities for safety sake and less air space congestion. Most flights are to MD Anderson in Houston but they also go to St. Jude, The Texas Christian Children’s Hospital and others as needed. Usually the flights are limited to 300 – 350 miles but longer flights may be available. Patients must be ambulatory and medically stable.

Winnfield Kiwanis Club Hears About Hog Dog Trials

Deano Thornton, representative from the Kiwanis club to the Hog Dog Trials Board, gave a history of the Hog Dog Trials. They began in 1995 as a way to honor Earl Long’s 100th birthday. The idea began with Claude L. O’Bryan and was a Saturday only event the first year. After several years and some conflict a year was missed. The next year the Hog Dog Trials was restarted with the civic clubs having ownership. Each civic club has a representative on the board. Uncle Earl’s Hog Dog Trials were trademarked so that they could not be taken out of Winn Parish.
