The electrical industry has seen radical change, and that change has also greatly impacted the Louisiana Energy and Power Authority (LEPA), a unique agent of 17 municipal electrical systems. LEPA is now undergoing another change as its longtime General Manager Cordell Grand retired on June 30, and Assistant General Manager Kevin Bihm takes the helm.

Reflecting on 35 years at LEPA and 18 of those years as General Manager, Grand said LEPA has worked through three major shifts in purchasing electrical energy supply during his tenure, and the last, to membership in the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) in December of 2013 was the most dramatic change in its history and has had continued implications.

The Winn Parish Healthy Initiative Coalition is happy to present the 3 rd Annual Back to School Bash set for August 1, 2019 at the First United Methodist Church of Winnfield, located at 300 Main Street. It will be from 10 a.m. to 1p.m.

The Back to School Bash is held each year to assist children of Winn Parish with their back to school needs. Each child is given a game card that resembles a Bingo card. They visit each station and participate in an activity that the vendor has. Then their game card is stamped, and they continue to the next station. When the card is filled up, the child receives a lunch and a bag of school supplies they can use at home. Many of the vendors are resources for parents who may need help not only getting their child ready for school but also for things throughout the year. Community service organizations also participate and provide information on the services they can offer to the community. Door prizes are given away throughout the event.
