Article Image Alt Text

WSHS Baseball lands players on AII-Cenla and All-State Teams. Justin Lawson,Sr. received All-Cenla and All-State honors for the second year in a row. Junior’s Jake Lashley and Eli Lasyone were honored with All-Cenla and All-State honors. Joshua Tinnerello, Jr. was honored with All-State. Junior, Brett Jurek and Senior Edward Teal received All-Cenla honors. Personally speaking, several of the Winnfield Tiger players got overlooked for All-Cenla and All-State having better stats, but that’s the sports writers neglecting to look at the numbers a nd letting politics control the voting. But that’s a different story.

“Winn Parish As I Have Known It”

Article 120-The first “Winn Parish” Louisiana State Administration at Baton Rouge—How it happened, to be continued next week. Just after the New Year, I visited relatives and friends in Baton Rouge for several days. I was greatly impressed by the great number of former Winnfield and Winn Parish people now living in the capitol city. This migration of Winn parish people to Baton Rouge started with the inauguration of Huey Long as Governor of Louisiana in May 1928.
