Gates sworn in as Winnfield City Judge

Gates sworn in as Winnfield City Judge

On Jan. 4, longtime lawyer for Winnfield, Keith Gates, was sworn in as the newly elected City Court Judge.

“America was founded on ideals that all men are created equal in term of the law,” Judge Gates said. “Judges are the keepers of the American law. Many people asked what type of judge I hope to be, and it gave me moments of thought and I found my answer in the Bible in Kings 3.”

“It’s an honor and a privilege to work as a judge, and a big responsibility to be the judge for the Winn Parish people,” newly elected Louisiana Supreme Court Judge Jay McCallum said. “We want honest judges, but most of all we want fair judges, and Keith Gates is one of the best people for the job.”

Congress passes emergency corona relief bill for loggers

Congress passes emergency corona relief bill for loggers

From left Hon. Keith Gates who had his investiture Ceremony at the Winn Parish Civic Center, where he took his oath as the newly elected Winnfield City Court judge, and his wife Amber Gates.

Members of Congress recognized the important role the timber harvesting industry plays in the United States economy by including both logging and log hauling businesses in the Emergency Coronavirus Relief Act of 2020. The bill includes language appropriating $200 million in funding for logging and log trucking businesses who saw a greater than 10 percent loss in revenues from January 1 through December 1, 2020 related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as compared to revenues for the same period in 2019.

Logging and log hauling businesses were deemed to be essential service providers, but have struggled with making fixed cost payments as a result of reduced markets for the unrefined forest products they produce.

Masked mourners filled a Louisiana church to mourn Congressman-elect Luke Letlow — one day before he would have been sworn in as a member of the House of Representatives.

Letlow, 41, died of COVID-19 complications Tuesday when he suffered a heart attack after undergoing an apparently successful operation to remove a blood clot. He had been hospitalized at Ochsner LSU Health in Shreveport since Dec. 23 as he battled COVID-19.

Toni and I are definitely saddened about the passing of our friend Luke Letlow,” Winn Parish Police Jury President said. “I ask that you keep his parents, Julia, and his young children in your prayers tonight. He has been a good friend to us over the last couple of years.”

The next level for baseball pitcher in Winnfield

The next level for baseball pitcher in Winnfield

Baseball pitcher Justin Lawson, who graduated from Winnfield who commited to one of the top baseball schools in the country

There is always an end goal for young baseball players.

For some it may be as simple as making their varsity or high school team.

For others, their ambitions might be set on continuing the game they love at the collegiate level, or continuing their love for the game professionally.

The love of the game could be diminished by the overwhelming odds and work needed to achieve one’s goal, and the daunting task that comes with continuing athletics.

However, that dream still continues on in Justin Lawson, a pitcher who just graduated from Winnfield Senior High School in 2019 and after countless hours of preparation throughout the last two years, Lawson signed a letter of intent on Nov. 12, 2020 to continue his baseball career at North Carolina State University.
