Early Release...Early Return

By Steve Colwell

A 34 year-old Atlanta man who gained early release on November 1 under the state’s controversial “Justice Reinvestment” program is back in jail. His freedom lasted just five days.

Winn Parish Sheriff Cranford Jordan said Rory LaCroix was out less than a week before he was arrested for the burglary of an Atlanta residence. The Sheriff said burglary was the same charge for which he had been incarcerated prior to his release.

Local Hero’s Service To Country Not Forgotten

Recently, a special group of young men from Winnfield Senior High School were recognized for their efforts in honoring a veteran from our parish.

Mr. Thomas Edward Hunter passed away on September 12, 2017, at the age of 93. Mr. Hunter was a World War II veteran who served in Normandy and fought with our troops to liberate Europe from the Nazis. Unfortunately, because Mr. Hunter had no close family, he spent his final years mostly alone, in a nursing home. He outlived all of his siblings and never married or had any children. As a result, he had no one to serve as pallbearers at his funeral.

Tigers’ Football Season Comes To An End

As the Tigers from Winnfield entered the field at Many High School, under fireworks, everyone knew it was the last regular season game. But many had been led to believe it wouldn’t be the last game this team would play.

The Tigers entered play on Friday night with a record of 1 – 8, not having won a single game on the road this season. However, they ran onto the field with the spirit and determination that they have shown all season. They came prepared to play with the confidence of a team that has worked all season to give their best.
