The West Fraser Joyce Mills in Winn Parish handed out 600 free hams on Dec. 22 ahead of the holiday season.

Nearly 400 hams were given out to people who showed up at the mills, and over 200 hams were delivered to home bound people throughout the parish.

“Reflecting back on 2020, it’s been a challenging year,” General Manager Billy Bell said. “This is something we wanted to do to reach out to the community and help. We feel fortunate to be able to do this if it wasn’t for the community, and we’re here for them.”

LSU Engineering Students Design Prosthetic for Catholic High Student

It’s incredible the chain of events that a chance meeting can set off.

When LSU Kinesiology Professor of Professional Practice and Athletic Training Program Director Ray Castle stopped by Catholic High School to visit with its head athletic trainer, Eddie Breight, he didn’t know he would meet James Robert III, who was born with a no fingers on his left hand. III, who wanted to weight train for track but couldn’t effectively because of his left arm, didn’t know that Castle would then make a call to Warren Waggenspack, professor of mechanical engineering at LSU, and discuss the possibility of students in LSU’s College of Engineering Capstone Design Program designing a prosthetic to solve the problem.

And none of the five LSU students, now graduates—Gary Couturie, Brette Crocker, Cecilia McAlear, Landon Stein, and Amelie Thomas— knew the impact that working on this one project would have on them. But back to the chain of events.

Vaccine Scam Warning

Vaccine Scam Warning

While people in Louisiana are eager to get a vaccine for COVID-19, they should be aware that fraudsters could try dangerous scams to take advantage of anxiety over the pandemic.

“If you choose to be vaccinated, know this: no amount of money or personal information will cure the wait to get the vaccine,” warned Attorney General Jeff Landry. “Just like they did with supposed test kits, treatments, and personal protective equipment - scammers are offering too good to be true schemes with the vaccine.”

“Everyone in Louisiana, especially seniors and their caretakers, should be on high alert for these fraudsters,” continued Attorney General Landry. “Be on the lookout for those contacting you by call, text, email, or even door knock claiming to be a government official in need of obtaining your personal, medical, or financial information for you to receive the vaccine.”
