Here is a nice comment from reader R. K. F.:
As the granddaughter of Jim Florane, I enjoyed the article on the Coushatta Ferry by Joe Taylor. The RRP library has a nicely framed photo of the ferry that I donated a few years ago. I also donated a booklet about the Florane family which includes lots of pictures and details of the ferry.

And we heard from Mary A.:
Thanks you so much for your wonderful coverage of happenings in RRP. I especially enjoyed being able to hear the Riverdale football game as I was unable to attend this week. Also the coverage of the Phil Robertson event was great. Keep up the great work?
