This is the big week for Vacation Bible School in our parish. There are sessions going on at Fairview Baptist Church, Open Door Fellowship, First Methodist Church, and Social Springs Baptist Church. If your children participate, take some pictures and send them to The Journal at

The man wanted for attempted murder has been captured. The Red River Parish Sheriff’s Office reports, “On the afternoon of June 23rd the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force apprehended Jeremy Key without incident. He was taken into custody in Laredo, Texas near the Mexican border.”
The RRPSO issued this update on Tuesday afternoon”
“Key is currently in Laredo Texas in the custody of the Webb County’s Sheriff’s Office. At approximately 10:13 a.m. this morning (June 27th) we received official word that Key waived extradition.
