A/C Repairs in Winter

You may recall the old story about the leaky roof.  The home owner did not want to fix it in good weather and he couldn’t fix it when it was raining.  So why would anyone want to fix an air conditioning system in the winter?  Because in Louisiana it never stays cold for that long a time.

The Members of Magnolia Baptist Church are faced with a no longer functioning air conditioning system in their Sunday School classrooms.  So they decided to pitch in and raise the money during winter to get it fixed by spring.

On Friday, the church held a pulled pork sandwich luncheon to raise the money.  The Journal spoke with member Barbara Nichols.  She was overjoyed with the results, “I want to thank the people of the parish so much.  They pulled together, helped with our fundraiser, and it has been a blessing to all of us.”

Nichols is speaking of the turnout.  Before the lunch hour they had already filled approximately 300 pre-orders.  The Pastor’s wife, Tammy Cloud cooked homemade pulled pork and heaped it high on the bun.  Bro. Wylann Cloud got some men of the church to load the lunches into vehicles and deliver them.

Each lunch was packed with love, and a homemade cookie.  Julie Long baked hundreds of cookies, some butter cream and some chocolate chip, and saw to it that one was included with each meal.

The weather has been chilly and damp this week.  And the folks of Magnolia Baptist Church worked to make sure they would be cool and comfortable to study and worship next summer.

Red River High Class Salute

The High School recently made a series of posts describing various new class offerings.  One saluted a new member of the faculty.

Meet Mr. Marco Reyes.  He is new to Red River High this year and is a huge asset.  Reyes teaches Math Essentials, Financial Literacy, Business Math, and Algebra 1.  This week Mr. Reyes lead our PLC (professional learning community) teaching us some of the things he has been learning in the State Math Content Leader Training.  Great job today Mr. Reyes keep up the good work.

Another post by the school dealt with AP Biology, “Meet Ms. Vance and her AP Biology class, both new to Red River High this year.  

Anyone ready for a McDonald’s Happy Meal! (cheeseburger, French fries, Sprite, and water)?  AP Biology pureed the happy meal and then tested it for proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids.

Business And Math Classes

Education is in the news this week.  Area schools are highlighting teachers and class offerings.  In this first article, posted by Riverdale Academy, the school asked, “Why Riverdale?”

The school said, “Mrs. Jennifer Desselle visited our Business Math class. Mrs. Desselle is a CPA in the area. She showed the students how to fill out a 1040 and spoke to them about different ways to save money when filing taxes.

“Math class meets real life in Mrs. Cason’s Business Math class.  She is helping to prepare our students for real life situations.”

The school booster club did some bragging about new business math class.  We are starting to look at budgets. The students have researched their careers-the benefits, salary, etc.  Also they researched different expenses like taxes, insurance, rent, gas, electricity, cell phone bills, tv plans, internet, groceries, and all the other monthly expenses they will have.  Several looked at different tv plans and which they would choose based on the cost.

Then they grocery shopped on Kroger and Walmart websites to see what the cost is for groceries each month.  They learned a lot about how much things cost. Next, will be looking into health insurance plans. 

English Class Updates

The Journal’s report continues with a look at English classes at Red River High.

Also this week, Red River is posting about the activities in some of their English classes.  In

English 1 the school said, “English 1 is totally engaged and working hard in Dr. Wimberly’s class.  One hundred percentof his students are writing and working on their Narratives.  They are Into week 4 and are already getting ready for Leap 2025.

English 2 is mostly sophomores.  The school said, “English 2 students are taking charge of their own learning.  Mrs. Bennett has these kids discussing, writing, and researching climate change, legalizing drugs, suicide, and immigration.  This group of students is doing what it takes to make Mastery and Advance scores on the Leap 2025 tests. This group of students doing what it takes to make Mastery and Advance on the Leap 2025.”

Debbie Guidry teaches advanced English or English 3.  The school said, “Guidry’s AP (Advanced Placement) English 3 class was working on Martin Luther King’s letter from Birmingham Jail.  Jasmine Thomas and Markell Henry were working on their annotations, they will be ready in May.”

From these reports it is apparent that new and exciting learning opportunities are being offered in our parish.

Varsity boys coach Ty Hester commented, “I’d like to ask everyone to come support the Varsity boys’ and girls’ basketball teams next Monday, the 3rd.

“Both teams have secured a #1 seed in the South A regional tournament by winning our district. Going a combined 19-1 in those district games, both teams will head into the postseason with a lot of momentum but before that, we all have an opportunity to honor our seniors as they play their final game at Riverdale.

“I can’t tell you what each member of my team, including my lone senior Jackson Riggs, mean to me as a coach but I am very proud of what they’ve accomplished up to this point of the season, and they deserve as much support as possible as they lace them up one more time in front of our home crowd. 

“Additionally, both boys’ and girls’ JV teams will be in action this Saturday, the 1st at Prairie View Academy in Bastrop, LA as they will be competing for district championships themselves.

“I can tell you that all of our kids on all of our teams bust their butts day in and day out while balancing their school work to put themselves in the position that they’ve earned to be in. For our kids, I hope to see everyone over the next few days and into the postseason.”

Bobby’s Barrel

Robert “Bobby” Leach was a daredevil.  Originally from Cornwall, England, he moved to Canada at some point and got a job as a stuntman in Barnum and Bailey’s Circus.  In his early 50s, Bobby owned and operated a lunch counter and souvenir stand near Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada, but he thrived on the attention his life-threatening feats brought him.  He once told reporters, “I fear nothing.”  He had made four trips through the dangerous rapids at Whirlpool Falls, the last of which nearly killed him. He had made “a number of balloon ascensions” in homemade balloons, he rode over the Seneca Falls in a barrel, and leapt off the Rainbow International Bridge 200 feet above the Niagara River with a homemade parachute.  Newspapers reported that his net worth since his daredevil days began had risen to between $20,000 and $30,000, an enormous amount in the early years of the twentieth century. 

Bobby had another goal that would exceed anything he had done before.  His next feat was to go over Horseshoe Falls, the largest of three waterfalls which collectively form Niagara Falls, in a barrel.  If he succeeded, he would be the first man to survive the trip.  Ten years earlier, Mrs. Anna Edson Taylor became the first human to survived the trip.  Unlike Anna Taylor, who used a wooden barrel for her trip, Bobby helped design and build a steel barrel for his trip over the falls. 

Bobby’s plan was hindered almost immediately.  Authorities in Niagara Falls, New York, and Ontario, Canada, both refused to allow Bobby to launch his barrel from their cities.  Undeterred, just after 1 p.m. on July 25, 1911, the 53-year-old Bobby tied his barrel to a motor boat and launched it several miles upriver from Horseshoe Falls.  Strong winds and choppy water pounded the boat and barrel, but Bobby was determined to continue.  At a point about three miles above Horseshoe Falls, Bobby climbed into the barrel, released the rope, and sealed the hatch on the barrel.  There was no turning back.  Bobby was now at the mercy of the river. 

Spectators watched as the barrel slowly made its way toward Horseshoe Falls.  A mile above the Falls, the barrel reached the rapids.  Over and over, the barrel smashed into and bounced off of the myriad of rocks in the rapids.  At 3:13 p.m., the barrel tumbled over the falls and disappeared into the churning water below.  Spectators held their breath and wondered if Bobby had survived.  Less than a minute later, the barrel bobbed up to the surface of the water.  Newspapers reported that the force of the impact tore both ends off of the barrel, but it was still afloat. 

Spectators stood in stunned silence for almost twenty minutes while the barrel drifted a safe distance away from the falls.  There were no signs of life from Bobby’s barrel.  Frank Bender, a local resident, swam out to Bobby’s barrel with a rope.  He tied it around the barrel and held on as a team of men pulled the Barrel to shore.  The men struggled to open the hatch.   They all wondered if Bobby had survived, though none would say it aloud.  When the hatch gave way, they peered in.  Blood streamed down Bobby’s face from a deep gash and his right leg was sprained, but Bobby was alive! 

On the following evening, Bobby spoke with a reporter about the trip.  His first words were “no more,” when the reporter asked if he planned to take another trip over the falls.  Bobby told the reporter, “The drop over the falls was not so bad, but that through the upper rapids was frightful.  It seemed as though the barrel turned over a million times.  The nearer I approached to the falls, the more the barrel turned.  Once, when I struck a rock, I thought it was all over.  A big dent was stove in the barrel and a couple of quarts of water came in.  I prepared to die.  But the water merely washed through the air holes.  It was striking the rock that hurt my leg.  The big drop over the falls was nothing in comparison to the rest of the trip.  I felt no sensation, certainly no pain, going down, and there was very little bump at the bottom.  All I have to say is that nobody’s got anything on me, so far as going over Niagara Falls is concerned.  But—never again.” 

Adopting the nickname Professor, Bobby went on a worldwide speaking tour and told of his many life-threatening, death-defying feats.  The people were most interested to hear Bobby tell the story of his trip while showing a film of his barrel going over Horseshoe falls.  He answered questions and posed for pictures, all for a small fee.  People flocked to his presentations.  While returning from one such showing in Christchurch, New Zealand, Bobby slipped, fell onto the street, and broke his leg.  Within a short time, his leg became infected with Gangrene.  Penicillin and other antibiotics were not yet available.  Doctors did the only thing available to them at the time and amputated the infected leg.  The infection, however, had spread throughout his body.  On April 26, 1926, in an ironic twist of fate, the man who had survived a trip over Horseshoe Falls, who had survived four trips through Whirlpool Falls, who once predicted that the water would probably “get him” one day, died as a result of slipping on an orange peel.  

Capitol Briefing

Taking the oath of office as District 22 state representative on the morning of January 13th in the presence of my wife, children, and parents was a truly special experience that I will never forget, but the solemnity of that momentous occasion was soon shattered when the House began proceedings to elect the next Speaker of the House. Ultimately the House members voted 60 – 45 to elect Rep. Clay Schexnayder(R-Gonzales) as Speaker, with 23 Republican representatives joining 35 Democrats and 2 Independents to provide Rep. Schexnayder the winning margin.

The citizens of District 22 should know that I voted with 44 other conservative Republican representatives to elect Rep. Sherman Mack(R-Albany) as Speaker of the House, but the coalition of moderate Republicans, Democrats, and Independents that supported Schexnayder assured that my first vote as representative ended in defeat. However, I have no regrets for my support of Rep. Mack, who won the endorsement of the Republican delegation with a super-majority of the votes during a delegation meeting I attended in Baton Rouge on December 13th

The days leading up to the inauguration and election of the Speaker were quite tumultuous, culminating with an emergency meeting of the Republican delegation on the morning of the inauguration. In that meeting Rep. Mack offered to step down as the delegation-endorsed candidate in hopes that Rep. Schexnayder and his supporters would join the majority of the Republican delegation and come together to support one Republican candidate, but Rep. Schexnayder rejected the offer and the meeting was concluded with a fractured Republican party heading to the House floor for the inauguration.

I must admit that this was a somewhat disappointing start for the new legislature since the people of Louisiana overwhelmingly voted for conservative representation in the 2019 elections, with Republicans gaining a super-majority of seats in the state Senate and a near super-majority in the House. However, I am cautiously optimistic that the new legislature will come together and successfully implement a conservative agenda of lower taxes, tort reform, and smaller government demanded by the people of District 22 and Louisiana. Rep. Schexnayder has a conservative voting record, and since his election as Speaker he has consistently stated that tort reform and lowering insurance costs are his number one priority this session. I am looking forward to working with Speaker Schexnayder in the coming months to implement real reforms that produce tangible results for the hard-working people of District 22.

I am pleased to announce the opening of my District Office at 181 Barron Road in Pollock, and the hiring of my legislative assistant Mrs. Myrtle Lasyone. Myrtle is a native of Georgetown, LA and comes to District 22 with 24 years of legislative experience, having worked with Sen. Gerald Long for 12 years and Sen. Mike Smith for 12 years. Her experience and heart for helping others will prove to be invaluable for this freshmen representative and the people of District 22. Please contact our office at (318)765-9606 or via email at hse022@legis.la.gov or gfirment@legis.la.gov. Thank you.

NSU Degree Ranked #2 Nationwide

Northwestern State University’s online Bachelor of General Studies has been ranked as the number two program in the country by onlineschoolsreport.com.  The website ranked programs in 10 areas based on student satisfaction, admission rate, online presence, popularity at school, department size and median debt by program. Data sources include the National Center for Education Statistics and the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard.

According to Executive Director of Academic Advising Steve Hicks, Northwestern State’s general studies curriculum provides flexibility to allow the student’s program to adapt to particular interests, background, time limitations and ultimate career goals. Hicks said a general studies degree “is especially appropriate for a mature person who has, as result of various educational and work experiences, a clear focus and strong commitment to a particular course of study.”

Students can choose a degree concentration that integrates coursework with interests such as arts and communication, computer and natural science, or social science and professional studies. Hicks said the degree may be appropriate for a person who has completed classes for a certain major, but is no longer pursuing that degree plan or has completed a wide variety of courses perhaps at a variety of institutions and want courses to count towards a degree plan. General studies may be a good option for a student who wants to achieve career goals faster or prefers an interdisciplinary course of study rather than something more specific.
