Do We Need Another Beauty Queen?

By Journal Publisher John Brewer

Every school has a Homecoming Queen.  And there seems to be a queen chosen for each fair or festival you attend.  So that got me to thinking, the Journal needs to hold a pageant and select our queen.

Yes! We do need a queen!

We will rent a prominent hall to hold the pageant.  There can be entries from churches, schools, and social clubs.  Moms and grandmoms can prepare the contestants outfits.  We can have competition in talent, swimsuit, camo, and other categories.

It will be a great time.  So, send your entries in. There is no entry fee.  And the tickets to the pageant will be free also.  The Journal will be selecting our “Miss Information” in the near future. 

We’ll do it right after we wrap up our quadra-annual Ugly Baby Contest.

Red River Escapes Storm’s Fury

The line of violent thunderstorms and the possibility of tornadoes developing caused the weather service to issue watches and warnings on Wednesday.  The parish received a lot of wind and rain for a period of several hours.

The possibility of severe weather across the state prompted the Division of Administration to order all state offices to close.  Those in our area were shuttered all day Wednesday.  Early Wednesday morning Riverdale Academy decided to close on Wednesday.  And NSU suspended classes at all campuses for the day.

Public schools were open Wednesday, however before the day was over the weather alerts caused an interruption of classroom instruction.

Red River Elementary summed it up, posting a big thank you to their staff.  “The RRES Administration wants to say thank you to all of our faculty, staff, and students for how well everyone handled our tornado drill this (Wed) morning.  We were very proud of how quickly everyone moved into place and continued to support one another.  Thank you for turning a scary situation into an opportunity to show how incredible each of you are.”

Woman Arrested For Theft Of Livestock In Red River Parish

A Shreveport woman was arrested on March 23 by the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry’s (LDAF) Livestock Brand Commission Inspectors regarding an investigation involving livestock theft in Red River Parish.

Sixty-eight-year-old Vera R. Ary of Shreveport was arrested in Red River Parish on a warrant for theft of livestock. The arrest was a result of an investigation by the LDAF’s Livestock Brand Commission. During the investigation, it was determined that Ary received two head of livestock and failed to render proper payment to a local livestock market as required by law. The alleged theft occurred on or about January 20, 2021.

“It’s unfortunate when we see this. The cattle producers are protected and receive their money from the local markets. However, the accused did not compensate the markets, and as a result, these businesses suffer the financial losses,” said LDAF Commissioner Mike Strain, D.V.M. “The law is specific when dealing with the purchase of livestock. The failure or refusal to pay for livestock acquired is a crime and a violation of the theft of livestock statute.”

The Livestock Brand Commission was assisted in this investigation by the Shreveport Police Department, Red River Parish Sheriff’s Department, and the 39th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

At this time, a bond amount has not been set, and the livestock has not been recovered.

The Livestock Brand Commission maintains a 24-hour Crimestoppers hotline at (800) 558-9741 for the public to report thefts.

The Banner Arrived

Principal Jacqueline Daniels of Red River Academic Academy and students and faculty proudly displayed the banner proclaiming them an “A” school.  The banner reflects the results of the latest School Performance Scores.

Daniels said “At RRAA we excel every day!! RRAA teachers  stay after school to help their students achieve higher.  Our teachers are always working to make sure the students at RRAA excel in every way.”

Congratulations to Red River Academic Academy on their 2021 SPS, RRAA is now an “A” school.

Red River Academic Academy was added as a separate school several years ago by the School Board.  It was designed to give intense instruction to students in 4th, 5th & 6th grades who were struggling and in danger of failing to pass on to the next grade.  Based upon the scores, and now the “A” rating, the school and students are making amazing progress.

Bass Fishing Ban Coming

By Steve Graf, Ranger/Daiwa Pro Staff

Well, we knew this day was coming, but I did not expect it to be in my lifetime. Bass fishing is being attacked, and some states are looking to ban it by 2025. It really angers me to know that a form of our heritage is being taken away by a minority group that would rather hug a tree or kiss a bass rather than eating one. These people who stand at boat ramps and protest any form of angling are the same people pushing the “New Green Deal” that President Biden ran on. While this can be upsetting and make you angry, make sure to read the entire article to get my full perspective.

If this doesn’t get every outdoorsman’s attention, I don’t know what will. Since I was a kid in the early 70’s, I’ve heard about people who don’t believe in fishing. They think that the pain inflicted on a bass as it is caught is inhumane. Now understand, they have no proof of this other than those in their group who have the ability to communicate with fish. Fish have said to them that the pain and suffering they go through is uncalled for and unnecessary. According to the tree huggers, the fish feel that no one has stood up for them until now. The fish have spoken and are tired of people thinking they know what’s best for them. So, I wanted to hear their side of the story.

To complete my own study, I decided to Google “fish language” on the internet, and to my amazement I discovered an online class that would teach me “fish language” so that I could do my own research and interview largemouth bass. This course really was a challenge even with my B.S. degree from Northwestern State. I was never one to try and learn a new language, but I felt it was vital for me to be able to get a true perspective as to what bass go through. After six weeks of intense bass language study, I was ready! Now all I needed was some bass to talk with and see things from their perspective.

How was I going to capture some bass for my study? Ha…I grabbed my Daiwa rod and reel combo (valued at $500), hooked up my Ranger bass boat and headed to Lake X. The first thing I noticed after arriving at the lake was that I could hear the fish talking underwater as I backed my boat in the water. I never noticed this before until I learned “fish language.” You know sound travels extremely well in and across water. It was so loud; it was like being at a rock concert with Hootie and the BlowFish, a very popular band in the fish world. Since learning to speak “fish language,” I now was hearing things in a whole other manner. Only someone who knows “fish language” can ever relate to what I’m talking about. 

Now for my study…after making my very first cast, I hooked a good size largemouth bass. I listened intently as the hooked fish jumped, but there was no sound, no screaming or moaning. I thought, “That’s strange, nothing at all….not a sound was made.” Now you would think if hooking a fish really hurt, there would be some horrifying sounds echoing across the water as the fished jumped trying to throw my bait out of its mouth. What I did hear was other fish cheering the hooked bass on and encouraging him to throw the bait back to me…kind of like how bulls cheer on other bulls as they try to throw the cowboy off during a rodeo. The bass were actually more excited to see if their friend could succeed at getting rid of the bait that hooked him.

As I continued to reel and bring the fish on board my $85,000 Ranger boat, still no screaming, no chirping, no howling. But this is where my “fish language” course finally paid off. I asked the fish if being hooked hurt him? His response absolutely blew me away when he said, “No.”  I then asked, “Well, do other bass feel pain when they are hooked?” Again, the bass said, ”No,” but shared that one thing that really bothers them is when humans allow them to flop on the deck of the boat, especially those with carpet as it takes their protective slime off their bodies which can lead to infections.  So, I finally had my proof that fish really don’t feel pain from being hooked. I had heard it straight from the horses (or in this case) the bass’s mouth. I thanked him for participating in my study and released him unharmed back into the lake like all good bass anglers do.

My conclusion was this…just like our political parties today, they make up fake news for their own benefit. Now we all know that there is no “fish language” course you can take, but to make this article more believable I thought it was necessary that you think that. Again, our politicians do this every single day; they make stuff up that they think we will believe.  They think we are like bass in that we have a brain the size of a pea. So, is it true that bass fishing will be banned by 2025? Probably not, but I thought it would be a good April Fool’s joke!!! Till next time, good luck, good fishing and don’t forget to set the hook….especially now that you know bass feel no pain!!!

Durham Indictments: Trump Really Was Spied On

By Royal Alexander

In the midst of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, historic inflation, record high gas prices and the inexplicable confusion some people have regarding whether men should be allowed to compete against girls in sports, it would be easy to have overlooked the report a few weeks ago of special prosecutor, John Durham.  It also doesn’t help that the national so-called media, once again, was slow to cover the story and did so only cursorily when it did.

What did we learn from the first installation of these startling court filings?

The crux of the filing is that an internet services company and its owner, Rodney Joffe, “exploited his access to non-public and/or proprietary Internet data” including “Internet traffic pertaining to the Executive Office of the President of the United States.”  Joffe was not only monitoring internet traffic to the White House during the Trump presidency but also internet traffic to Trump Tower and President Trump’s apartment on Central Park West.

I note that every time a government website is accessed the individual accessing it has to acknowledge they have the right to do so, or they will be subject to prosecution, so hacking the White House servers is certainly an indictable offense.  However, what happened here is a classic insider attack because a system can never be secure from people who are authorized to access it and who are unethical or crooked.  Joffe’s company had the technical authorization, if not the legal authority, to access the server under the contract but of course only for the legitimate purpose of the contract.  (Joffe’s scheme was to monitor Trump’s servers using access to internet traffic granted to him and his company under a DOD cybersecurity contract).

In perhaps the understatement of the year, the Wall Street Journal noted that “White House communications are supposed to be secure, and the notion that any contractor—much less one with ties to a presidential campaign—could access them is alarming enough.  The implication that the data was exploited for a political purpose is a scandal that requires investigation under oath.” (WSJ, 2-15-22).  Will that ever happen at a time when the Deep State in D.C. holds so much power? Probably not.

Many of us have believed this for years but national “media” and social media further underscored their obvious double standard in the way they ignored and actively suppressed the Clinton corruption story which is demonstrably true—versus their saturation coverage of the purely speculative Trump/Russia collusion story—which is demonstrably false, as Robert Mueller and his team made clear after $32 million dollars and 18 months of investigation.

As Fox News Contributor, Jason Chaffetz, explains the bombshell revelations contained in the Durham filings “could have profound implications on Americans’ ability to trust our institutions.”   The Durham filings confirm what so many Americans already suspected—that President Donald Trump was right about his opponents infiltrating his private information—including during the time he was president and in the White House—and that Hillary Clinton’s campaign consistently lied to the American people about it. 

We should enumerate the several astounding conclusions that can be drawn from the filings:

One, our federal government can’t be trusted to protect our data.  Secondly, our White House communications are not secure. (How is this even possible?).  Thirdly, U.S. Intelligence Agencies like the FBI can be and have been weaponized for partisan politics.  We can no longer trust our law enforcement agencies or federal courts to investigate, prosecute and try people on a non-partisan basis.  The existence of a federal investigation may or may not be rooted in real evidence of criminal actions, depending on whom their subject is.  Fourth, if there was any remaining doubt there is no longer that we cannot trust mainstream news outlets who buried this story. (See also the 2020 Hunter Biden laptop story which the often-dishonest media only now, in March 2022, acknowledges was a major story, one damaging to the Biden presidential campaign).  Fifth, there is simply no justice—no equal protection of the laws—if Hillary Clinton and those around her are not held accountable.  (Jason Chaffetz, 2-16-22, FOX).

The point here is that some very bad actors involved in the Hillary for America campaign worked together to manufacture false information to make it look like Trump was conspiring with Russia.  They delivered the false information to the FBI and CIA in order to prompt an investigation which they could then have the media report on, making it look like the Trump-Russia collusion allegations had substance behind them when they clearly did not.

The conclusion is that Trump was spied on by the FBI later (through illegally obtained FISA warrants) but by Hillary’s campaign initially and the entirety of the Trump-Russia allegations were made up out of whole cloth by the Hillary for America campaign, which paid handsomely for them.

These filings make painfully clear that we are at a point in American history that a presumption of falsity and untrustworthiness must be made whenever our national media or government institutions make a “statement” regarding the “news.”  There is simply no reason to believe them at face value, and every reason not to.

The WSJ concludes that the “unfolding information” contained in the Durham filings “underscores that the Russia collusion story was one of the dirtiest tricks in U.S. political history … and Mr. Durham should tell the whole sordid story.”

Kansas basketball: A psychiatrist’s dream

By Teddy Allen

Kansas is a 4.5-points favorite against Villanova Saturday in the first of two NCAA Tournament semifinal games. Duke and North Carolina will follow at approximately 7:49; the Blue Devils are a 4-points favorite.

Hello, Awesome Saturday Night. Except …

If you see a Kansas fan between now and then, and if he or she is gnawing on tree bark and unable to mumble a complete sentence, move along. Yes, the Jayhawks are favorites. Yes, Kansas has a basketball tradition as rich as anyone’s.

But yes, Kansas come Tournament time is a heartache waiting to happen.

East Coast. West Coast. Midwest. Deep South. Historically, the Kansas basketball program has arguably left more hoop-loving hearts broken all over this great land and on the Final Four Road than any other program that’s ever dared nail up a peach basket.

They’ve got the awesome old-school gym. The simple, bright, cheerful uniforms you could probably wear to church and get away with. That happy-go-lucky Jayhawk mascot.

It’s a program that’s strung together a ridiculous 31 straight NCAA Tournament appearances, the most ever. All the Jayhawks do is win.

Until it’s time to finish. Kansas has only three NCAA Tournament titles in its illustrious history.

Which is three more than lots of programs, for sure. Most anyone would trade for what Kansas has been able to do, generation after generation.

And still, their reputation is that of a Bracket Buster. Kansas giveth, and Kansas taketh away. Saturday will mark the program’s 16th trip to the Final Four, which means that for all their trips to the mountaintop, the Jayhawks have left as King of the Hill only once every five times.

They’ve been runners-up six times, college basketball’s equivalent of baseball’s 1950s’ Brooklyn Dodgers and 1990s’ Atlanta Braves.

Bridesmaids City.

Recent history:

In 2010, Northern Iowa, historically one of the finest programs in all of the great state of Iowa, bounced them out.

In 2011 as the Tournament’s No.1-seed, Kansas was dismissed by VCU in the Elite Eight. (Time flies; Shaka Smart seems like last week.)

2014, they got Stanford-ed, although it’s important to remember that Kansas was Joel Embiid-less thanks to an unfortunate injury.

2016 and 2018, well, we’ll come back to that in a sec.

In 2020, the Jayhawks were ranked No. 1 in some polls and … The Ultimate Indignity … the Tournament was pandemically cancelled.

So here they are again with head-scratching Kansas, never ranked No. 1 this season, yet champions of the Midwest Regional and the only No.1 Regional seed left in the ballgame. If you are a Kansas fan, you are probably preparing for a dagger where it hurts.

But who knows? Bill Self could become just the 16th guy in the college game to win multiple national titles. Kansas could do what the 1952 and Self’s 2008 team did and win it all.

Very un-Kansas-like, they’ve even won it when they weren’t supposed to. I happened to be there hanging around in Kemper Arena in Kansas City in 1988 when “Danny Manning and the Miracles,” a 6-seed, upset No.1 Oklahoma, 34-3 and winners of 21 of its last 22 games, 83-79. The game was tied 50-50 at the half, the small (for a Final Four) arena was an explosion of cheers and colors and gasps and drama, and the whole thing was more fun than a little bit.

And maybe the same will be true this weekend. Maybe. With Kansas being a favorite over Villanova in the Saturday semis, that’s a step in the right direction.

Except … remember we mentioned 2016 and 2018? Kansas played Villanova in the tournament both those years. And lost. First, in 2016 when the Jayhawks were the top-seeded team in the tournament.

And then in 2018, when Kansas lost to the underdog Wildcats … in the semifinals.
