She left all of us so much better than she found us. Thanks for the memories, Emmy!

The Gifts Of Laughter and Music: Retired Teachers December Meeting

Christmas came early for the Winn Parish Retired Teachers Association! On December 10, about 50 members gathered in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Tommy Bankston to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.

After enjoying a delicious meal of holiday treats and warm fellowship, the members of the Retired Teachers organization assembled in the Bankston living room for a Christmas concert presented by three local musicians. John Holland, Minister of Music at First Baptist Church, opened the program by sharing some of his childhood memories about the days when music played a vital role in the education system. He commented that music is a universal language that relates to others, especially during the holiday season. Mr. Holland explained that he likes all styles of music, with jazz being his favorite. He then shared two jazz arrangements with the group, which included “The Christmas Waltz” and “Santa Baby,” made popular by the vocalist Eartha Kitt.

D.A.R.E. K-9 Demonstrations Across Winn Parish
D.A.R.E. K-9 Demonstrations Across Winn Parish

Rows of children squirmed in their seats in the Calvin High School auditorium as they sat in anticipation. Murmurs and whispers rippled throughout the room as they waited patiently. Suddenly a hush fell across the awed students as they watched Miky make his grand entrance.

The 3-year-old Belgian Malinois strolled in accompanied by his handler, Winn Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Dylan Womack. The students’ eyes widened as they watched Miky come to the front of the auditorium. Once on stage, Miky received his instructions to find the drugs that had been hidden in one of four containers by local game warden and volunteer Suni Nelson. At once he set off, and within mere moments he was rewarded for a job well done finding the container that held the narcotics. The children were thrilled to see Miky showing off his talent for drug detection – but his next “trick” had them squealing in delight.
