Winnfield appears on list of financially distressed cities in Louisiana

More than 20 municipalities in Louisiana — including one in Winn Parish — are on the brink of declaring bankruptcy according to a report by the Louisiana Legislative Auditor.

These cities and towns include parish seats throughout the state. According to Newsbreak.com, most of these towns are dealing with financial distress to a level that threatens their ability to deliver vital services to residents.

According to the report by the state auditor the City of Winnfield had significant hurricane damage, a disclaimer on its 2018 audit report, and has not completed its 2019 or 2020 audit reports, limiting the auditor to assess the city’s finances. Those stress indicators include operating deficits in its utility operations, as well as repeat findings identifying problems with operating reserves/ financial monitoring and noncompliance with debt covenants.

Three brothers will be the first set of triplets to ever graduate from Louisiana’s Grambling State University as Stevie, Steven and Stephon Wilson, natives of Winnfield graduate from Grambling State University.

The brothers will walk on April 15, feeling accomplished in their own right as trailblazers for their hometown community.

“[When we graduated high school] we saw it. When we all left [for college] they were very, very emotional but us graduating and actually separating – I think it’s going to be bittersweet, but they’ll be happy because we’ll be third [generation] legacy,” said Steven. “Our motto when we left Winnfield was to set the standard for other African American minorities in our town. [For] so many young students in Winnfield, they don’t have that role model to look up to. We set that standard to let them know it can be done.”

Rotary Club honors Carolyn Phillips and her accomplishments

Carolyn Phillips, former mayors and current mayor of Winnfield joined the Rotary Club of Winnfield to honor Carolyn Phillips and her contribution to the City of Winnfield. From Left, Kiah Beville, B.R. Audirsch, Phillips, Deano Thornton and Mayor George Moss.

The Rotary Club of Winnfield brought in Carolyn Phillips to recognize and honor her for her work she does for the community and were joined by current mayor George Moss and previous mayors Deano Thornton, Kiah Beville and B.R. Audirsch and former editor at the Winn Parish Enterprise Bob Poleman to say a program on Phillips.

Rotarian of the Week Ted Wold had planned to honor Phillips last year, but due to COVID-19 pushed it back a year.

Wold had told Phillips to give a program about her work with Uncle Earl’s Hog Dog Festival and the Louisiana Political Museum because she knew she’d never come to a program honoring her accomplishments in the community.

Winnfield Middle School Beta back at nationals

Winnfield Middle School Beta back at nationals

Breanna Pray who won first place in performing arts solo

Competing at he Beta State Competition looked a lot different this year. Instead of spending two and a half days in Lafayette at the Cajun Dome, we took all of our tests and posted all of our entries virtually. Preparing for team events was largely done virtually and projects were completed away from school rather than all gathered up in a classroom. And rather than finding out the results on that last day, we waited nearly four weeks to get our results! But, with all of the differences Winnfield Middle School had amazing results with seven events placing the top 5 and qualifying for Nationals, which will be held at the end of June at Disney World in Orlando, Florida! Congratulations to all who competed, you should be very proud of yourselves! Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to see how we do this summer!
