The Journal says a big THANK YOU to all who responded positively to the Sunrise pictures. Many people I have met on the street in the past couple of days have been very complimentary. Especially kind words came fro Faerie Sledge who wrote, “Nice sunrise photos in today’s journal. Enjoyed seeing them, as you say instead of all “ugly” news.”
This has been an important week for area students planning for their education beyond high school. Representatives of various schools visited the parish with info on their offerings. Also there was a college application day held at Red River High. That story next week in the Journal.
Also coming up today is the dedication of the new mine by the Dolet Hills Mining Company. There will be lots of food and speeches by dignitaries. Governor Edwards is scheduled to speak.
Saturday night is dance night at the Council on Aging on Front Street. The Playmates will be playing from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. Admission is $6.00 per person.
As we are putting this edition of the Journal to bed, the crew of Journal Sports is headed to Many to broadcast the Red River vs Many football game. They’re playing on Thursday, moving the game ahead one day because of the fear of bad weather on Friday.
