Natchitoches own Dr. Julian Bailes talks about athletic brain injuries By LaMar Gafford The Northwestern State Demons football team had a surprise visit from one of their former players Aug. 6 as they continued to settle into the first week of their fall training camp. World-renowned neurosurgeon and Natchitoches native Dr. Julian Bailes checked in with the team and took part in the school s fall media day. A walk-on with the Demons in 1974, Bailes is a neurological consultant for the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), an advisor to the NCAA and the medical director to Pop Warner Football. Bailes is co-director of the NorthShore Neurological Institute in Evanston, Ill. Bailes also is a founding member and director of the Brain Injury Research Institute, which focuses on the study of traumatic brain injuries and their prevention. For 22 years he has been a sideline physician at either the NFL or NCAA levels. For the last 10 years, I ve been on various NCAA committees and there s been nothing more important for the NCAA than the issue of concussions, Bailes said. Concussions have been partly misunderstood and incompletely factored in how it A voter s registration drive is being set up by City Councilwoman Sylvia Morrow of District 3. She is teaming up with volunteers and neighborhood residents. The first meeting will be Sept. 6 at 10 a.m. at the North Street Day Care Center, when an overview of the entire registration process will be given. Anyone interested is welcome. Every vote counts and every registered voter should vote in every election. Voting should be a top priority for each individual who is registered, said Morrow. Morrow is asking for caring partners, volunteers of the clergy and educational ranks to join her in this voting registration effort. She will utilize the community impact approach by using block captains from points throughout the community plays to our sports. While vacationing in his hometown, he talked to NSU football players and coaches about player safety. It s said that there s been more discovered about a concussion in the last decade than we ever knew in prior time of medicine in sports, Bailes said. It s not just football and its not just boys [athletics]. Girls soccer, ice hockey and basketball rank with up there with concussion exposure and the incidents of concussions. Since the NFL took its stand on concussions, including implementing a policy where a player has to pass tests before heading back unto the field, various professional leagues have followed suit. In 2011, Major League Baseball added a seven-day disabled list solely for concussions in order to discourage players from returning too quickly and curtail long-term brain damage. World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is another league that has been on the forefront of reducing the number of concussions in order to keep its wrestlers from further risk. However, the focus continues to be on making athletics safer for youth who have See Bailes Page 3A Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts Foundation received $5,000 for its Green Space Project from the International Paper Foundation.

To apply visit: District attorney, judges, school board seats on November ballot The district attorney, judges and school board races will be heating up soon as those for judge and City marshal are already there. There is no announced opposition to District Attorney Van Kyzar who is seeking his fifth term. School board members from the 11 districts will also be facing re-election. So far, there is only one announced candidate, Lala Sylvester, to the District A race in the Tenth Judicial District. In District B, Desiree Dyess and Robert Owsley are already battling for the Democratic seat. No doubt the Senate race with incumbent Mary Landrieu fighting for her seat will draw out the Democratic vote for Dyess and Owsley. Retired NPD officer Randy Williams, Dep. Tim Key and Kevin Stafford are all vying for the city Marshal s job. Qualifying dates for the Nov. 4 election are Aug The following offices will be on the ballot: U.S. Senator U.S. Representative Associate Justice for Supreme Court, Public Service Commissioner, District Judge District Attorney School Board members Justices of the Peace, Constables Ashland Mayor, Chief of Police and Council members; A joint investigation by the Robeline P o l i c e Department a n d Natchitoches P a r i s h Sheriff s Edwards Office has led to the arrests of three Robeline area men in connection with the burglary of the old Robeline High School gym according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff s Office.

Stave s chapter, From Eden to Paradise: A Pilgrimage through Toni Morrison s Trilogy, is from the festschrift given to Morrison on her 80th birthday for Toni Morrison: Memory and Meaning. Stave is an internationally recognized scholar of Morrison. The work features essays by international scholars focusing on Morrison s literary production and including her very latest works the theatrical production Desdemona, and the novel Home. These original contributions are among the first scholarly analyses of these works and make the volume a valuable addition to potential readers and teachers eager to understand the position of Desdemona and Home within the wider scope of Morrison s work. The analyses presented in this volume attest to the broad range of interdisciplinary specializations and interests in works that have now become classics in world literature, enhancing the breadth and depth of Morrison studies. Stave was the 2013 recipient of the Dr. Jean D Amato- Thomas Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes a senior faculty member whose career has included a significant commitment to research and service to their disciplines. She received the Mildred Hart Bailey Research Award in 2009 and the Excellence in Teaching Award in Stave Stave has written, edited or co-edited five books, 10 book chapters and several articles in leading professional journals. She is an active presenter at conferences and symposiums around the world.

3 The first scholarship winner is Joel Masters who attended Lions Camp for 4 years, starting at the age of 14. He is a hard working, strong willed, independent and persevering young man whose love for hunting, fishing and the outdoors almost exceeds his love for Lions Camp, the Ragans said. He has been an inspiration to all of his counselors and fellow campers. Joel plans to open a taxidermy shop when he finishing his college work at Bossier Community College. Scholarship winner Christian Bellard has an intense drive and determination to be the best he can be, the Ragans said. This young man sweats greatness. He plans to become a coach for the Para-Olympics and give back to his community. In the fall, he will attend LSU in Eunice to pursue his passion of athletics, especially track and field. Bellard has competed all over the state in many events during his high school career at Pine Prairie, winning LHSAA State Championships four times in the 800 meter wheelchair race, four times in the 400 meter race and two times in the 200 meter race. This year he was state champion in shot put setting a new state record of 20 feet, 6 inches. The generosity of the Natchitoches community made it possible to donate $20,000 to the LA Lions Camp in memory of Kasey Joelle Ragan say her parents, Wayne and Tina Ragan. Extensive renovations to the camp s dining hall took place in the spring. The dining hall was used to serve over 500 campers and their counselors three meals a day this summer. In addition to the renovations, scholarships were presented to three amazing campers this summer. Each of Kelly Polk will attend Red River Community College in the fall and plans to transfer to Louisiana State University at Alexandria to major in communications with a minor in English. Kellie Polk is an inspiration to everyone who knows her. She has had many challenges in her short life that her fierce independence and courageous spirit have brought her through, the Ragans said. Polk plans to put her story to good use by becoming a motivational speaker. Parents say generosity of Natchitoches results in $20,000 given in Kasey s name the graduating campers will be attending college in the fall.

We ve done a lot to make that level safer, Bailes said. We ve tried to increase awareness and the education for players, parents and coaches and also rule changes. Three years ago, we were the first to limit contact in practice and unnecessary contact. That has trickled up and that has affected all levels from the NFL, and now, the NCAA. Last season, the NCAA implemented a targeting rule in order to eliminate hits to the head and to defenseless receivers by handing included Dr. Archie Breazeale, Jr., Sadie Maggio Dark, Margaret Harling (posthumously), Dr. Colleen Lancaster, and Mary Lee Posey. Potential Natchitoches Treasures may be nominated by members of the Natchitoches community.

Article I. The Bill of Rights (Declared in force December 15, Association sees universities vital to training State s workforce Louisiana colleges and universities have become an increasingly important part of the state s impending economic boom by joining oil and gas industry leaders in a plan to prepare thousands of workers for high-tech jobs in oil and gas exploration and production. The number of platforms off the Louisiana coast is expected to double over the next decade as 40 percent of the current workforce reaches retirement age. That will result in the need for up to 40,000 new workers by With $60 billion in new energy investments planned for the state, the Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association has joined with higher education and economic development leaders in a pact to help create an expanded workforce for the industry. An official with the oil and gas association said new technology in the industry has increased the demand for specialized training and education for employees. He said, We must equip tomorrow s offshore workers in today s classrooms. That is a dramatic change, of course, from past decades when workers that did not have a college or even a high school education could earn good wages in both offshore and onshore oil and gas exploration and production jobs in the state. Under the agreement with universities, community and technical colleges, state Workforce Commission and Economic Development Department, proposed new programs in oil and gas production will be combined with basic technology, science, math and engineering courses to create specialized training for industry workers. Mid-Continent officials envisioned the possibility of Louisiana colleges and universities becoming a global training center to help prepare people for jobs not just along the Gulf Coast but also in the North Sea and Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Dr. Sandra Woodley, president of the University of Louisiana System that includes Northwestern, has been at the forefront of the movement to expand workforce development for the energy sector and other industries. That could be beneficial to NSU because of its proximity to the Haynesville Shale. Woodley is correct in calling the new partnership between the Mid-Continent Association and state colleges and universities a prime example of how Louisiana higher education is coming together with business and industry to meet workforce needs. Legalized gambling, its profit woven into fabric of culture Legalized gambling has become a major part of Louisiana s culture and economic fabric despite extensive opposition to the casino industry in its early years, and a decline in those operations at this point would be detrimental to the state. That message is communicated to the public frequently by state gaming companies that emphasize the importance of the direct and indirect jobs and tax revenues for state and local governments that are created by riverboat and landbased casinos. Louisiana s 19 casinos had 15,700 permanent employees last year with wages and benefits of more than $603 million. In addition to those jobs and wages, there are hundreds of other positions in spinoff businesses that are supported by the casinos. Casinos generated nearly $600 million in tax revenues last year for state and local government at a time when income for services and programs in state, municipal and parish government has not been sufficient to meet needs in education, health care and other vital are There has been a concern for years that new laws legalizing casino gambling in Texas would cut deeply into this state s gaming industry. That is an understandable apprehension for a state that relies as heavily as Louisiana does on casinos for jobs, tax income and economic stability.

Natchitoches, La. Veterans group getting out the vote By Scott Rogers A local group in Monroe concerned about low voter turnout in the state will begin an initiative to encourage more veterans and their families to vote during the fall elections. Huey O Neal and Armand Breard spoke with The News- Star Editorial Board on Wednesday about the campaign, which will kick off after Labor Day. A volunteer nonpartisan committee of concerned veterans formed the group because they believe the country s leadership has become unresponsive to the people and fear for the future of the United States. During the last midterm election, only 20 percent of registered voters participated despite Louisiana having some of the easiest methods to vote, O Neal said. By Jeremy Alford LaPolitics New Service While the Democratic and Republican parties in Louisiana have decided to team up to pursue unlimited fundraising possibilities on the federal level, there may also be a shared legislative agenda in the works on the state level for the 2015 session. The executive directors from both parties say there are at least three issues they already agree on and are willing to sit together at the committee table to discuss. The first involves the state's qualifying period, which is usually held in the early fall, around August, and less than three months before the primary. "Practically everywhere else around the country it's held in the spring," said Stephen Handwerk, executive director of the Louisiana Democratic Party. "Pushing it up will give us more time to prepare and will settle the fields sooner. I also think it could help the secretary of state's office, since they would have more time to get the ballots ready and prepare for the elections. Fundraising could be on the menu as well. With a recent court decision clearing the way for the Fund for Louisiana's Future, a super PAC, or political action committee, to collect unlimited donations on the state level, the parties would like to see a law passed that gives the same privilege to their own stateregulated independent expenditure accounts. Lawmakers may also be asked to put the court's super PAC decision into law. "That's something we both agree on," said Jason Doré, executive director of the Louisiana Republican Party. Additionally, the pair is We are concerned about our country. We think it is not heading in the right direction, so we want to increase voter participation. We plan to speak at various veterans and civic groups in Louisiana and use all available media to get the message out. We ll develop this network throughout the state this summer and launch the program after Labor Day, O Neal also said. Voter registration drives will be held, and the group will identify those who may need help with early voting. The program will follow The American Legion s Get out the Vote guidelines to encourage more veterans and their families to participate. We ll concentrate on veterans because these are the people who served their country, but they still need to continue to serve by voting, O Neal said. Your vote does interested in exploring the limits on when and where campaign signs can be placed in advance of elections. The issue sprouted in Lafayette earlier this year when a long-forgotten local ordinance was discovered allowing signs on private property only within three months of balloting. "It's private property and should be a freedom of speech issue," said Handwerk. Will Edwards get Democratic nod? With former Gov. Edwin Edwards more than likely serving as the Democrats' best hope of seizing the 6th Congressional District, attention is turning to whether the state party will get behind the candidate, who was in federal prison just a few years ago. If he asks for a vote of the (Democratic State Central Committee) then we'll see," said a DSCC source of a possible endorsement. Since he announced for the race, the party seems to have kept Edwards at arm's length. But party officials say that isn't so, pointing to the fact that Edwards has not yet qualified and the field isn't settled. If he makes the runoff, as recent polling predicts, that would present a different situation, they say. "I would like the endorsement, but we need to be fair to the other Democrat in the race," Edwards told LaPolitics, referring to Richard Lieberman of LaPlace, who has also announced. "If the party gave me some kind of sign, I might ask for it. I do not want to be presumptuous. Kirstin Alvanitakis, the party's communications director, said, "Our executive committee approved a procedure to allow our state central committee to endorse federal candidates via mail-in ballot on our last conference call, so we will likely be endorsing in competitive federal races this fall. For now, Edwards will have matter, and if we don t use I think our country will continue to deteriorate. We must vote in the midterm election this fall to restore our country to the proud country that we fought for. The vote is the greatest weapon to defend our freedoms. It is an obligation. It is a way of defending the freedom that we have sacrificed so much for. Louisiana accepts several forms of identification for registration and residents can register 30 days before an election. On the Secretary of State s website people can register to vote, change their address and party, get sample ballots, find out where to vote and get election dates and early voting dates. Residents over 65 may request a mailed ballot. It is amazing how easy it is to vote in Louisiana, O Neal said. Dems, GOP target 2015 session for shared agenda to settle for an enviable wave of national media attention. Over the past few weeks, Edwards' bid has been covered in rather lengthy profiles by New York Magazine, National Journal and The Weekly Standard. In the coming days, he will also be featured in a segment produced by CNN's chief political analyst Gloria Borger. Parents join lawsuit against BESE More than 190 names, primarily those of parents of students in public schools, have been added to the anti-common Core lawsuit filed against the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education and Superintendent John White, sources tell LaPolitics. The additional plaintiffs were added to the suit, originally filed in Baton Rouge s district court by 17 state legislators, on Friday and Monday morning. Parents started calling (last week) and I think it s going to keep growing. They want to join the suit, said a source involved with the anti-common Core legal action, adding the parents are from all over the state. Whether more names will be added is unknown, but interested parents are continuing to reach out to lawmakers. We are still getting bombed with names this morning to join, said a source early Monday. The lawmakers, mostly Republicans from the fiscal hawks group, along with two Democrats and two independents, are paying for the lawsuit out of their own pockets, sources tell LaPolitics. The lawmakers argue the Administrative Procedures Act was not followed by the board in implementing Common Core, noting the standards were not properly advertised and publicly discussed. White and BESE president Chas Roemer contend the board was never required to follow such guidelines and that the lawsuit has not merit. Letters to the Editor Dear Editor: On Aug. 4, Chas Roemer, the president of the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE), blamed Louisiana s poor education ranking (fourth worst in the nation according to the 2014 national WalletHub.com rankings for the Best and Worst School Systems ) on low expectations ; he also blamed Gov. Jindal s opposition to Common Core (at odds with Roemer and the majority of BESE s support of Common Core) for creating an educational fiasco in Louisiana. Roemer was quoted as saying We need leadership that spends less time on politics and more time on kids. Roemer is correct that Louisiana needs educational leaders who put the education of our children above politics. Unfortunately, Roemer s fiasco statement is an example of the kind of political posturing that he denounces. Roemer s comments do not address Louisiana s specific failings in the WalletHub national ranking. Louisiana was ranked 48th in the nation for its math and reading test scores. Louisiana had the highest percentage of children who repeated one or more grades. Louisiana tied with Washington, D.C. for having the least safe schools. These are serious, systemic failings that deserve sober assessment and solutions. Instead, Roemer shuns his and BESE s responsibility to address these low rankings, putting the blame on Gov. Jindal and suggesting that Common Core will address Louisiana s educational problems, with absolutely no evidence to support this assertion. Roemer would be hard-pressed to provide such evidence, as Common Core standards are new, controversial standards that lack the statistical data needed to prove the standards merit in promoting student achievement. Louisiana s education challenges are not new and predate the recent controversies over Common Core. The Common Core standards are new, untested, and unproven; any claims made that these standards will improve Louisiana s schools cannot be supported with data or evidence. Political rhetoric and an unfounded faith in new standards will not address our education challenges. Instead, we need education leaders who will work with parents, teachers, and civic leaders to develop education solutions that work and have a consensus in the community. Lottie P.

5 Weekend Edition, August 9-10, 2014 THE NATCHITOCHES TIMES 5A Provencal correspondent finds dilapidated building with history PROVENCAL NEWS By Dottie Gill Out in the Harmony community outside of Provencal, there stands a monument to forgotten times. I came upon this house and was offered a tour just recently and was amazed at the things I found. It does not have the original roof which was made of wooden shingles, but some time ago the wooden shingles were replaced with a tin roof. But most of the house is original. It is amazing to me that the original house is in great shape, while that addition is crumbling. A family member says it is because the hole in the roof was not closed up when the chimney for the stove in the kitchen was removed. The house was built around 1919 and housed the Zerie Brister family. Mr. Zerie bought the property in 1913 for $75. That is quite a price for 40 acres. He went to Texas and entered the service in 1918 in Center and served in World War I. He served in the Panama Canal area. He was mustered out in 1919 and returned to Louisiana. His father, W.T. Brister, had homesteaded and farmed in the area beginning in There were at least 400 acres in the original homestead of Zerie Brister s father. Mr. Zerie and his wife raised six children on this homestead. He raised corn, cotton and peanuts. One of his grandchildren told me he also raised watermelons. The cotton crop was flooded out one year and he never tried growing cotton again. One of the children is Wanel Brister and I interviewed him about the house. It is where he grew up and has many memories of living there. Zerie also had a grist mill. On Saturdays, the neighbors would come and have their corn ground at the mill. He also had a blacksmith shop and sharpened the plows and other instruments for the neighbors. He would lay the crop in and would work in a sawmill to earn money for the family. Times were simple then and there were only three items they had to buy: coffee, sugar and flour. The old house and its outbuildings are all still stand- ing. Most of the interior of the house is heart of pine lumber. It is next to impossible to find now. There is a privy, a smokehouse and a canning house. Mr. Wanel told me that his parents would get up early and gather the vegetables from the garden. It was then the children s job to shuck, peel or shell the products. Most of it was canned in the canning house. They would kill chickens and hogs. That meat was also canned. There was no freezer to put it in, so it was put in metal cans. They never went hungry. Times were hard back then, but most people just knew it as a way of life. You had to grow what you ate and everyone in the family worked. They used kerosene lanterns for light and there was a kerosene refrigerator. Mrs. Brister cooked on a wood burning stove until 1949 or so. Mr. Brister would maybe go to Natchitoches once a month and into Provencal weekly. Mrs. Brister played the piano at Harmony Baptist Church. She died in January of 1976 and he passed in October that same year. The house was handed down in the family. Connie Rockwell is one of the grandchildren and told me a story of a knothole in the center room of the house. I thought that maybe it was originally called a dog trot as there were bedrooms on one side and kitchen on the other in the original house, but it was not built in that style. She was there one time and said her grandmother said company was coming and they needed to clean the house. She told her grandmother they needed to close up the hole. She said her grandmother told her no, that was where she swept the dust down and out of the house. There is always a practical solution to every problem. The old chimney began to fail in the 1940s and the heat supply was changed to a wood burning stove. Mr. Wanel said it used less wood than the fireplace so it was a good thing. All wood had to be chopped by hand, so this was a little less work. As we walked through this house and then outside to look at the out buildings, the thought kept coming to my mind that if this old place could talk, what stories it could tell. There were good times and there were bad times. As I interviewed Mr. Wanel, I thought of how this family made it through all the good and the bad and they have great memories of the life they lived there. I hope this article can preserve some of those memories and keep them for the family. There is a great deal of service to our country by the Brister family. Mr. Zerie served in the First World War Mr. Wanel is a military retiree. Grandchildren have served in other conflicts. The current owner of the house is an Iraqi war vet. This is just how things were back then. Families worked hard and service to our nation was just something they knew had to be done. Interestingly, just recently another resident of the area told me of a horse corral that used to be in the woods behind her house when she moved out there over 40 years ago. She said that it was near a natural spring Earn grocery points by purchasing Gatorade For the second consecutive year, Brookshire s has partnered with Gatorade for a promotion to benefit emergency first responders across Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, while rewarding customers for their purchases.

Keep your business in Natchitoches! where horses were watered on their journeys with goods through the area. Another resident of the area, Billy Clark told me that the old deep well on the Brister property had some of the clearest, sweetest water he ever tasted. The old well has crumbled and has been filled in. Loggers have cleared out most of the pines on the property and there are some awesome oak trees that will be in my back yard. It is a beautiful area. There is an area where the water drains and it goes into a creek that eventually runs into Provencal Creek. Mr. Wanel told me that there was a swimming hole back there that they swam in as children. Two relatively young oak trees stand to the side of the house and will be part of our front yard. I have found that even in the hottest part of the day, there is a gentle, cool breeze that comes through there. It is a pleasant place to sit. I can sit there and can almost hear the voices of the family that lived there so many years. I do genealogy and have found it is really important that history be preserved by families so that future generations have this information. It is sad that so many of these old places have gone to ruin and I applaud this family for keeping the old house. Gun Funtastic Toys!

6 6A THE NATCHITOCHES TIMES Weekend Edition, August 9-10, 2014 Annie s Mailbox Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a 13- year-old boy and can't talk about this with anyone I know. My father isn't in my life. It never mattered because I have the best older brother anyone could ask for. "Tommy" is 21, and he is my hero. He helps me with my homework, teaches me about life, takes me places, protects me and loves me unconditionally. But here's the problem. I think I'm in love with him. Is Brotherly Love: Fight to keep close to your family that possible? He's all I can think about. I'm not gay. I like girls. I have never felt this way about any other guy. Tommy has a girlfriend, and they plan to get married. He's never done anything to make me think he has other feelings for me, although he's very affectionate. He gives me hugs and kisses the top of my head. Is there something seriously wrong with me? Should I tell Tommy how I feel? I really love him with all my heart. Little Brother Dear Brother: Thinking you are in love with a sibling is actually not that uncommon. When you are 13 and going through a great many physical and hormonal changes, it is easy to think that the strong, loving feelings you have for Tommy may be romantic in nature. You admire him, appreciate him and want to be close to him. The important thing is to understand that these feelings will be replaced by more appropriate ones as you get older. Until then, you can discuss these feelings with your Mom, your school counselor, your doctor or a trusted adult relative or neighbor. Dear Annie: Our son married a wonderful girl last fall, and we love her and her parents dearly. There is only one problem. Their eating habits are atrocious. "Emma" cooks nothing but high-fat, high-sugar food. Her mother cooks the same way. Since marrying, our son has put on a lot of weight, and all of them could lose a few pounds. Her father is having gallbladder issues but refuses to change his diet. I have offered to help Emma learn new recipes, but she isn't interested. I love these people and want to help them develop better eating habits, but I don't want to make them angry by sticking my nose in where it doesn't belong. How do I help? Mom-in-Law Dear Mom-in-Law: Please don't tell Emma's parents how to eat. Your intentions are good, but there is no way to do this without sounding as if you are lecturing and criticizing them. The same goes for your daughter-in-law. Instead, concentrate on your son. Surely, he grew up with healthier eating habits and knows the difference. Encourage him to help Emma stay healthy, because this is something that will affect their future children. Then stay out of it. Dear Annie: You missed the boat with "Maisie's Mom," whose daughter won't let the dog live with them after she promised she could. You admitted that Mom is a victim of a bullying and abusive daughter, but then said she might have to apologize anyway in order to keep seeing her little grandson. Mom owes NO ONE an apology. She should find a place to live with Maisie and move on. Perhaps when the grandson is older, he will choose to be a part of his grandmother's life. In the meantime, Mom can volunteer at a school to be with children. Life is too short. Amazed and Appalled Dear Amazed: A great many readers thought "Maisie's Mom" should keep the dog and cut her daughter and grandchild out of her life. That is her choice, but we know many parents would not think that is a satisfying solution.

Lafayette woman gets prison term for stealing more than half-million dollars THE STORIES BEGIN HERE LOUISIANA FIRST WEEKDAY RATES FROM $129 WEEKEND RATES FROM $149 (504) THEROOSEVELTNEWORLEANS.COM/LOUISIANA-FIRST.HTML Valid from May 31-September 15, 2014 Based on availability LAFAYETTE, La. A Lafayette woman was sentenced to 29 months in prison and five years of supervised release for defrauding more than half a million dollars from Waste Auditors Inc., the Lafayette company where she worked, U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced today. Bunnie Morris, 61, of Lafayette, was also ordered by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote to pay $337,049 of restitution. According to evidence presented at the Feb. 20 guilty plea, Morris was employed as a financial accountant/bookkeeper for Waste Auditors Inc. from 2001 to During that time, she forged signatures of corporate officials on numerous payroll, bonus, and expense account corporate checks processed through two banks totaling $579,050. Not only did she forge checks and expense account information, she orchestrated unauthorized payments to herself in the form of pay raises and bonuses. In order to disguise her actions, she listed in the company s financial records that she had voided all fraudulent checks that she had cashed or deposited, when in fact she negotiated and received benefits from those checks. Morris was not an authorized signatory on any corporate checking account and was required to obtain signatures from supervisors before executing a transaction. The U.S. Secret Service conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Howard C. Parker prosecuted the case.

Section A, Page 8 Weekend Edition, August 9-10, 2014 By LaMar Gafford Sports Editor As the dog days of summer approach, a new path of hope begins on the gridiron for four Natchitoches Parish teams. Northwestern State and the parish s three high schools--- Natchitoches Central, Lakeview and St. Mary all kicked off practice this week as each team looks to begin their journey to the playoffs. NSU finished last season strongly after winning three of their last four games to break even at 6-6 in head coach Jay Thomas first year. With a successful first season in the books, Thomas is hopeful that his team can return to light up the Southland Conference and make it back to the Division I Football Championship Subdivision playoffs for the first time since Not far from NSU, the Chiefs are looking return to the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) playoffs for the fifth straight year---a feat that has not been achieved since However, there is a sense of renewed optimism that this year s NCHS team could be a bit better than in previous years thanks to a potentially explosive offense that has a year of experience under its belt. Junior quarterback Austin Guy struggled with his accuracy last season, but should be better as seniors D e s h o n Ficklin, Reginald Sports The Natchitoches Times Thomas Turner and Helms Correion Mosby are expected to help out in the aerial assault. Defensively, the Chiefs lost a few players, but Helms says that there is still some experience on that side. At St. Mary s, a new era begins as coach Lee Doty steps into the Tigers den, attempting to help the school improve from its first appearance in the LHSAA quarterfinals since So far, it s going really good, Doty said after Aug. 7 s morning practice. We had some heavy legs, but we battled through it and finished strong. We are where I thought we needed to be s c h e m e wise. Typically a small, scrappy bunch, the Tigers once again will be a factor in Doty District 3-1A, with them and Block expected to tussle for the district title. Senior running back/ linebacker H u n t e r Hallman Bedgood is arguably the heart and soul of St. Mary s and his ironman mentality will be expected to carry them far once they head into the LHSAA Division IV playoffs. Our kids have sold out and bought in, they really getting after it, Doty said. Our effort is outstanding. We have to polish some techniques. I am putting a huge emphasis on special teams. There is also a changing of the guard in Campti, as Freddie Hallman returns to Natchitoches Parish to take over a promising Lakeview program. LaMar Gafford, Sports Editor (318) Football returns as teams have dreams of big seasons Natchitoches Central defensive back Tyrek Sowell intercepts a pass in mid-air during the Chiefs first practice Aug. 5. Photo by Kevin Shannahan. Practice has been great this week, Hallman said. We had the opportunity to get some conditioning in. Although I m disappointed in the numbers, morale has been better than I expected. Even though the Gators have not made the LHSAA playoffs since 2003, last season they were close and competitive with players such as senior running back Montez Pikes providing stability on offense. Lakeview should only get better with an accomplished Hallman---who has won 150 games in his career---running the show. Yet, it will not be easy right off the bat as evidenced by the low turnout numbers before the school year begins. There is talent here, but there s only been that have come consistently, Hallman said. Our top 11 players that have been here are decent, but if anything happens to any of them, it would be bad, because we have to have that depth. All four teams open up their seasons in Turpin Stadium, beginning with NSU s White Out game Aug. 28 against Missouri State. Demons look to improve with new coaches on offense, defense While there are new coordinators on both sides of the ball, and on special teams, with 57 letterwinners returning from the best Northwestern State football team in five years, several senior leaders of the 2014 Demons squad were full of optimism Wednesday during Fall Sports Media Day activities before their second practice of preseason camp. The new offensive and defensive coordinators are proven veterans of championship teams in the Southland Conference, with Ben Norton adding the coordinator role to his duties as the Demons offensive line coach during last year s 6-6 season that included a 3-1 finish and a 5-1 mark at Turpin Stadium. Mike Lucas was a highly successful defensive coordinator for 18 years at Sam Houston State, and helped mature the program and create the foundation for Southeastern Louisiana s 2013 Southland championship season in five seasons as the Lions head coach ( ). The fresh-faced special teams coordinator, August Mangin, played and worked on the football staff at LSU under Les Miles, whose creative and effective special teams play has been a hallmark of the most successful extended run in Tigers history. The new coordinators haven t discarded schemes that served the Demons well last season in the first year under head coach Jay Thomas, although one media member jokingly suggested on Twitter that Thomas and Norton were shifting NSU to the wishbone offense for There will be changes, but not radical shifts, coaches and players said Wednesday. Everybody on the offense is real excited. We have a new offensive coordinator in Coach Norton, but not much has changed with terminology or our approach. We ve added some things that should make us even more productive At Northwestern State, Harris Wilson Jr.,known to many as Coach Black, wears many hats. During the NSU Demons Fall Sports Media Day Aug. 6, Wilson gave news reporting a hand as he interviewed senior quarterback Zach Adkins. From left are Wilson and Adkins.

It s exciting to see how our offense is taking off. We know Coach Norton will have the offensive line doing great work. They ll open holes so we will have a great run game, and they ll give time for Zach to throw so we ll have a great passing game, said senior running back Garrett Atzenweiler. Lucas is tweaking the Demons Purple Swarm Reservations are being accepted for the annual Duck Commander Independence Bowl Foundation/Northwestern State Kickoff Luncheon set Aug. 20 at Superior s Steakhouse at the corner of Line and Pierremont in Shreveport. The noon event will feature remarks by the Demons head football coach, Jay Thomas, and NSU s director of athletics, Greg Burke. Reservations are requested for the Kickoff Luncheon and can be made by calling the Independence Bowl office at or toll free at BOWL (2695). The lunch will carry an all-inclusive charge of $20 per person, and attendees are asked to please pay with cash if possible. This is a tremendous event each year for Northwestern State defense, mindful of the traditionally aggressive play he watched from other sidelines during his 26 seasons on other Southland sidelines. We are going to play with a calculated violence, said Lucas. We re telling our guys, the definition of the Purple Swarm is you re either on the pile at the ball, or you re sprinting to it. Our new defensive coordinator pushed us hard all spring and we got better in 15 practices, so we feel very confident about the progress we can make in preseason camp and during the season, said senior defensive tackle Damon Medcafe. Lucas has a cornerstone up front with his senior nose tackle, 6-4, 344-pound Baton Rouge product Deon Simon, who drew attention from NFL scouts during a breakthrough junior campaign. I don t know if there s a defensive lineman in the FCS that s as dominant as Deon Simon can be, said Lucas, who for the past two seasons was defensive coordinator at Indiana State in the Missouri Valley Conference, which produced two-time FCS champion North Dakota State. Simon says his focus is on the fall, not next spring when the NFL seems likely to come calling. It doesn t affect me at all now. I will worry about that when the time comes after the season. My focus is on our season and what we need to do to win a championship, he said. Flanked by a corps of hardcharging defensive ends, including 2013 Freshman All- American JeMarcus Marshall, the Demons defensive tackles will anchor a front that could be big trouble for opposing passers. Adding to the challenge: NSU has both preseason first-team All- Southland cornerbacks, seniors Imoan Claiborne and Fred Thomas, along with veterans Rico Albert and Jason Yarbor backing them up. We are very strong and confident with four seniors returning in the secondary. We re looking to build on that and we have some very capable younger guys who will help, said Claiborne. The pass rush is everything to us. It makes our job in the secondary easy when the quarterback has to get rid of it in a hurry and with what we have going on up front, that s what we expect, added Thomas. Offensively, the Demons have lots of experience back at receiver and running back. Players who scored 30 of last year s 41 offensive touchdowns are back, and the 2013 and 2014 recruiting classes will add to the mix. We have some younger See Demons Page 9A Reservations available for Independence Bowl Foundation/NSU Kickoff Luncheon Northwestern State head coach Jay Thomas talks to media members during the NSU Fall Sports media day.

When I was hired as director of athletics at NSU in 1996, this was my first official event as AD on my first day on the job. That s how important we consider the annual luncheon presented by the Independence Bowl, and the Shreveport-Bossier community. Thomas will preview the Demons 2014 season at the Kickoff Luncheon and discuss the team s progress during preseason camp. Northwestern kicks off its schedule a week later, on Aug. 28, at home in Turpin Stadium against Missouri State. Superior s Steakhouse is the home for NSU s in-season Shreveport-Bossier Demon Quarterback Club Luncheons held every Thursday at noon, beginning Sept. 4, during the football season.
9 NSU Fall Sports Media Day to air The Northwestern State Fall Sports Media Day luncheon Aug. 6 is being replayed to Natchitoches-area cable subscribers on NSU TV. Each weekday until game day for the Aug. 28 White Out game season opener in Turpin Stadium against Missouri State, the event will be shown at midnight, 9 a.m., and 7 p.m. on NSU TV, which can be seen locally on SuddenLink Channel 22, CP- Tel Channel 55, and Lobby Channel 8 for residents of University Place Apartments 1 and 2. The hour-long luncheon provided previews for seasons in cross country, Lady Demon soccer, Lady Demon volleyball and Demon football, along with remarks by worldrenowned neurosurgeon Dr. Julian Bailes, a Natchitoches native and former Demon football player who is one of the foremost experts on sports concussion research. Student-athletes in football, soccer and volleyball joined coaches in all four sports who provided insight into their upcoming seasons during the luncheon. The replay was produced by David Antilley II, manager/executive director of NSU TV. Demons ink three to track and field team The Northwestern State track and field program has announced the signing of distance runners Ashley Adams, Kaitlyn Tunks and Hunter Wamack who are slated to join their squads this fall. Tunks come to NSU after a decorated career at St. Louis Catholic High School in Lake Charles. Tunks took the top spots in the 400 meter dash and 800 meters at the 2013 Region I-3A Championships as well as in the 800 at the 2013 LHSAA Outdoor State meet. All three athletes will also be part of the cross country program which kicks off its season Aug. 29 with the McNeese 6K Relays from Lake Charles. Golf tourney to take place at prison The Louisiana State Penitentiary Museum Foundation is hosting the second Angola Prison golf tournament Aug. 22. There will be two 18-hole rounds of golf at the Prison View Golf Course beginning at 8 a.m. and again at 1 p.m. There will be a four-person scramble, with prizes for the top three finishers, longest drive and closest to the pin. There will also be a putting contest at noon and a silent auction of inmate art. Cost is $100 per player or $400 per team and it includes 18 holes of golf outside of the tournament, golf cart, continental breakfast, lunch and tour of the Angola Museum and the penitentiary. Entry form and payment deadline is due Aug. 21. Make checks payable to LSP Museum. The foundation s goal is to raise funds for the preservation of historical sites on Angola. Angola and its history, embodied in the museum, is a unique and important characteristic of our past, Kevin Couhig, honorary chairman of the tournament. The golf tournament allows us to celebrate that history and to support the museum s efforts to share that important part of our parish with the world.

We have 14 freshmen coming in that cover all of the positions, said senior defender Strug. (Wednesday) we had our first fitness test and everyone came in ready to go. We are just ready to start our season. The Lady Demons return 15 letterwinners that include seven seniors, six juniors and two sophomores. The team is already meshing well even though we have 15 returners and 14 newcomers, said Strug. Having 15 returners and almost as many coming in has really increased the competitiveness, which is we need to have a good season. I just love the competitiveness and think it is really going to be good, said senior forward Johnson. I am expecting good things. Last year s team took a major step forward when it won five league games, the most since Seven of the 11 starters from 2013 return, and with the addition of Johnson-who missed last season with an injury. The squad has a veteran feel despite the amount of newcomers. I tore my ACL the second game of last year against Baylor, and I was crushed, said Johnson. Now I get another chance at it, and I am excited about that. I am really excited about getting back and meeting 14 new girls, said the Natchitoches native. Northwestern State returns four of it s six top scorers from a year ago, including Brooke Eastburg who tied for the team lead (8 points) in Cassandra Briscoe had six points, Nikki Saunders had five and Johanna Sigvardsson had four. Another position the Lady Demons have to replace is the goalkeeper. Jessica Danku started 18 of the 19 games in goal in 2013, but returner Brooke Bourbonais also has a lot of experience under her belt. Bourbonais started all 18 games in 2012, and registered almost 1400 minutes in goal. We also have a new graduate assistant who is going to be our new goalkeepers coach, said Strug. We have two freshmen goalkeepers coming in as well as one returning. Northwestern State added Emily Morphitis from Hofstra as its graduate assistant in charge of goalkeepers. With Bourbonais, she will work with freshmen Alex Latham and Cadence Starr. We think she will add a lot so, so we re excited about those changes. We had our fitness test Wednesday morning, and that is one thing every single one of us dreads all summer, said Weekend Edition, August 9-10, 2014 THE NATCHITOCHES TIMES 9A With injury behind her, Johnson anxious to return to soccer pitch Just two days from reporting, the Northwestern State volleyball program took the podium at Fall Sports Media Day on Hernesman Wednesday, echoing feelings of determination to achieve the conference title that was in their grasp last season. We lost the championship game by three points and that gave us the extra drive we needed all spring, senior Keelie Arneson said. We were constantly reminded of those three points. It has given us the extra drive to lift harder and run faster. Not lost in the heartbreaking finish was the acknowledgement of the program s growth. A season ago, NSU finished with its highest RPI in school history placing the Lady Demons ahead of major programs like Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Houston, Rice and others. Fifth-year head coach Hugh Hernesman and his staff have embraced playing non-conference marquee program s and this season will be no different with the likes of Auburn, Baylor, Memphis and Mississippi State all scheduled in September. We don t shy away from that competition. Our players have played against these players all throughout club so I don t think anyone of them will back down to these schools, said Hernesman. In the past, we ve taken the approach that these are pre- Johnson. Now we are all excited for the season. Head coach George Van Linder enters his third season at the helm for Northwestern State, and 16th year overall. season scrimmages to see where we re at but this year we re going to be at a new level and we re going to try to knock off some of these teams. Arneson, Northwestern State s first-ever Southland Conference Libero of the Year award winner a year ago, echoed the same belief. The thing that stands out to me the most is our confidence, Arneson said. If we would have played against those teams three or four years ago our faces would have looked beat before we got on the court. Our group as a whole has gotten a lot more talented. We re bigger, faster, stronger and we re all just better players together. In the offseason, the Lady Demons were active on and off the court including seniors Mackenzie Neely and Emily Johnson who went on mission trips. Neely s journeys included two trips to Haiti as well as a week in Tanzania over the last year. It is something that really changed my life, Neely said. It s difficult to talk about because I saw a lot of different things that you can t put into words unless you ve been there. It was a great thing for me and E.J. as well. NSU was busy in the classroom too, posting a 3.61 team GPA this past spring and 3.47 GPA overall on the way to receiving their third straight AVCA Team Academic Award. I m excited that we do this with outstanding student-athletes as well, Hernesman said. This past spring we didn t have anyone below a 3.0 and had three athletes with His career record stands at The Lady Demons open the season on Aug. 22 against Louisiana College at the Lady Demon Soccer Complex. Lady Demons hungry for Southland title after heartbreaker Head coach L a n e Burroughs announced two staff changes for t h e Northwestern State baseball team on Burroughs Tuesday after he promoted volunteer assistant G.T. McCullough to a fulltime assistant and brought on Nick Ammiriati as the new volunteer. It s the second time in two years that McCullough was promoted within the staff. In 2013 he was moved to volunteer assistant after serving as the director of operations in 2012, his first season at Northwestern State. GT has shown extreme loyalty to me and to Northwestern State. He has earned and deserves this promotion, said Burroughs. He is a very hard worker and extremely intelligent. The Demons... receivers who are going to help us. We saw that on display Tuesday, said senior wideout Bryant Mitchell. There s a lot of new stuff that Coach Norton put in that will add to our offensive package. We re going to take a lot of deep shots and do things that will progress us to being an even more productive offense. The biggest question offensively is up front, where three senior starters graduated. Newcomers and redshirts will join nine returners in a group Northwestern State senior middle blocker Mackenzie Neely is one of five seniors that have transformed the Lady Demons into one of the top teams in the Southland Conference. Photo by Gary Hardamon/NSU Photographic Services. behind the scenes things he did for us the past two years, in addition to his coaching duties, displays his selflessness and energy. He truly has a servant heart He will continue to coach first base, and will work with outfielders as well as assist with hitting and recruiting. GT has always had an extreme desire to learn and get better every day. He checks his ego at the door and looks to make NSU Baseball better each day, said Burroughs. He is one of the young and hungry lions in the coaching profession that doesn t believe in clocking in and out. He is on the clock 24/7, and his work ethic is off the charts, he said. I m excited to see he and Coach (Bobby) Barbier working side-by-side in the office and in recruiting. The future is stable and very bright for Demon baseball. McCullough was a part of the Demon staff that broke a led by senior center Austin Douglas. We had some low numbers on the offensive line in the spring, but we knew help was on the way. We ve brought in several young guys and now we have a rotation of three groups, which is just the right size rotation so we can get better and not get worn down, said Douglas, who transferred from Ole Miss and spent the first half of the season at guard before senior center Warren Jones shifted there to allow Douglas to take a more Southland Conference record for the biggest single-season turnaround with a 14-game improvement and won 33 games in The staff led NSU to the Southland Conference tournament for the first time since 2010, and posted victories for the first time since Ammiriati was a member of the 2013 College World Series run with Mississippi State as the starting catcher. He started in 49 games (51 played) and threw out an astonishing 41-percent of base stealers. He was a big part of the 2.77 earned run average MSU pitchers posted that season. I m so excited that Nick has decided to join the Northwestern State Baseball Family, said Burroughs. Ammo is a baseball guy through-and-through. He has driven all over the country to coach or play. He just loves being at the park and helping others with their comfortable spot. Last year was the first time I d ever played guard in my life. I wanted to be on the field and that was the way to get out there quicker. It feels more natural to me playing center, said Douglas. I m real excited. We re going to have a good offensive line. We ll get Garrett and those good running backs some room to run, we ll give Zach time to throw and get it to Bryant and all those other receivers in the end zone, he said. Lady Demon senior midfielder Yanci Johnson returns for her fifth year after an ACL injury forced her to take a medical redshirt last season.

He prepped at one of the finer baseball programs in the country in Seton Hall Prep He hit for.246 batting average in his senior season at Mississippi State, including one home run and 23 runs batted in. He had 23 runs scored and three doubles in 167 atbats. Ammiriati will work with catchers and assist with the pitching staff. This summer, Ammiriati coached Demons Evan Tidwell and Matthew Alford with the Hoptown Hoppers. I watched Ammo fight through some adversity when things did not go his way and persevere to being the everyday catcher on a team that played for a national championship, said Burroughs. He worked hand in hand with someone I truly admire and respect in Butch Thompson (MSU Associate Head Coach). He learned the importance of pitch calling and grew to be a perfect 4.0 s. We re doing this with some real talented players with real high character. In attendance at the Fall Sports Media Day included all five seniors and redshirt junior Caiti O Connell, a group Hernesman praised for their ability to take a chance on Northwestern State and ultimately ended up turning the program around. They basically had to buy into a vision and really take a leap of faith, Hernesman said. The season before us had three wins and a 290 RPI. Last year, we finished in the top 100. There are two schools during that time who have improved in RPI more; two out of 330 Division I schools. With two consecutive seasons of 20 or more wins, a first-ever season sweep of Stephen F. Austin and an establishment of a recognizable name in the volleyball community, there is just one step remaining. A conference ring would be amazing, senior Stacey DiFrancesco said. It s my last season and we ve worked extremely hard since we were freshman. We ve come such a long way; I d be disappointed if we got anything else but a ring. Burroughs promotes McCullough to full-time, Ammiriati named volunteer pitching coach on the field. The Sparta, N.J., native signed with the played with the St. Paul Saints before signing with the Seattle Mariners organization in He was drafted in the 46th round by the Florida Marlins out of Seton Hall Prep in At Seton he caught now- Major League Baseball pitcher Rick Porcello, who is on the Detroit Tigers staff. Ammiriati elected to attend Panola Junior College and not join the professional ranks in He s a fighter and determined. He took the independent ball route that parlayed into signing with the Seattle Mariners, said Burroughs. He knows the value of hard work and commitment. He has a bright future in this business. Both moves complete the staff for the 2014 season after Barbier was hired as the pitching coach in early July. A couple of Demon seniors were especially happy to change the calendar to Linebacker Marion Chapman sat out last season when a couple of credits did not transfer from his junior college, and will be a focal figure for the Purple Swarm, said Lucas. It was hard sitting out but it helped me a lot. It taught me to be patient and I think it taught me how to be a better leader, said Chapman. Tight end Corey Simmons played last year, but at about 75 percent of his capabilities after an ankle injury late in the 2012 season. It was obvious in spring practice his skill level was improved, and Norton took notice, padding the workload for NSU s tight ends. I ve worked hard and I believe I m in position to have a great senior year. We re putting a lot more in to make the tight end position more productive, so that will cause problems for defenses we face and as a group, obviously the tight ends are happy about that, said Simmons.

11 Section B, Page 1 Weekend Edition, August 9-10, 2014 Lifestyle The Natchitoches Times Corey Poole Lifestyle Editor (318) What s Your Line? By Tommy Atkins On my mother s wall hangs a portrait of a beautiful woman. It was painted in New Orleans in the 1850s. She is seated in a red velvet chair wearing a black dress with a fine tatted veil pinned in her hair. At her neck she wears a black brooch with the head of a woman in relief. In her lap she is holding a handkerchief that matches her veil. Next to her is a small table and her left elbow rests on a red bible. This beautiful woman was Coshati Neal Dark ( ). She was the great grandmother of my grandfather Thomas Spence Dowty. Coshati married William Dark after the death of his first wife Martha, her older sister. William and Martha had a son, Major Joseph Neal Dark. William and Coshati had three daughters: Mary Lucretia, Adeline Cecilia, and Anna Coshati. Adeline married Samuel Austin Dowty (my ancestors) and her sister Anna married his brother John Dowty. After William s death in 1845, Coshati continued the operation of a huge plantation named Ingleside, near Boyce and the Hot Wells Community. Although Coshati s story is worth telling, it will have to wait until another writing; today I ll tell you about her stepson, Major Joseph N. Dark. Major Dark moved from Louisiana to Texas. He was a county surveyor and the area s first doctor. He was also a steamboat pilot on the Trinity River and formed a company of Confederate cavalry. It was Sept. 16, 1861 when three men arrived at the Dark s home around midnight. G.H. Willis, Thomas Magness and Austin Chessher were planning to steal $30,000 believed to be kept in Dark s house. A servant greeted them as Dark appeared in the doorway. Chessher fired two shots killing the servant and wounding Dark s wife. Dark grabbed his shotgun from behind the door and fired, killing Chessher instantly. Magness and Willis were later caught, tried and hanged. It was eight months after this that Dark formed his company of cavalry. He was promoted to major and was third in command of the Confederate 25th Texas Regiment of Calvary and also their surgeon. Joseph Dark died in 1905 and was buried on the Trinity River in Liberty County, Texas. It was folklore for years that he was buried in his Confederate uniform and with his beloved shotgun in the casket. This was later proven to be true when his remains were exhumed and moved to Moss Bluff Cemetery because The Trinity River s overflowing was a threat to his grave site. His shotgun was not only used to kill Chessher but also an angry bear. It is said that Dark took her orphaned cubs and trained them to plow, haul corn and other chores. Had Maj. Dark s grave been washed away by the Trinity River, his story would have gone with it. Musicians will rock out riverbank to release Tri-Centennial CD The Riverbank Stage will come alive with the sounds of Natchitoches Saturday night at 6 p.m. The Tri- Centennial Celebration will showcase songs from its commemorative CD, This is Our Town, which is a musical tribute to the Tri-Centennial Celebration. Local musicians born or living in Natchitoches were encouraged to submit an original song and 64 songs were submitted and reviewed. Thirtyfour songs were selected for inclusion in a two CD set. The CD will be available for purchase at the event, then carried by local merchants. It will also be available online for shipping as many Natchitoches natives live around the country. The CD was mastered by a Grammy-winning producer/engineer in Nashville. The jacket has six panels with artist information printed over pictures of the area. I ve heard Miss Cammie s Dinner Table, a new Tri-Centennial Exhibit celebrating the art community at Melrose Plantation, will be open to the public on Saturday, Aug. 9 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Lemee House. Sponsored by the Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches the display will focus on the artists, photographers and writers that worked at Melrose during the first half of the twentieth century. The Mistress of Melrose, Cammie Henry, opened her home to a host of important figures who painted, photographed and wrote in the quiet solitude she offered. As early as the 1920 s the Dallas Morning News was reporting, It is safe to say that the handiwork emanating from Melrose can be found in almost any library, art gallery or museum in the country. There Lyle Saxon wrote Father Mississippi, Fabulous New Orleans, Old Louisiana, and Lafitte the Pirate. Newberry Prize winner Rachel Field worked there on Hitty Her First Hundred Years as did Ada Jack Carver Snell, the celebrated author who won the Harper s Prize for Redbone. The internationally known historian Henry Chambers compiled his voluminous history of Louisiana there. There also John P. Coleman wrote his Old Home of New Orleans. Caroline Dorman, the forestry expert called Melrose her workshop, as did Irma Sompayrec who founded the art colony at Natchitoches. Doris Ulmann elevated photography to the level of art while working at Melrose. Alberta Kinsey, the noted artist, called the plantation her home port. Kinsey is credited with beginning the preservation of the New Orleans French Quarter, and is also the artist that left paint tubes and brushes in a Melrose cabin that Clementine Hunter used to create her first painting. Hunter, whose worldwide acclaim has now eclipsed all other Melrose artists, got her start watching the Melrose artists paint as she worked as a domestic servant in the Big House. There were three rules for those creating at Melrose. First, you must work. Second, you must not disturb others in their work. And third, you must do as you please, so long as you obey the foregoing two. Every day at the dinner table, each guest was expected to share with Miss Cammie the work that he was doing. If she was not satisfied with the guest s productivity, she would soon let them know it was time for them to move on. The dinner guests and visitors were invited to sign the tablecloth. Pat Henry, grandson of Cammie Henry remembers, My grandmother had me sign the tablecloth. Then I sat beside her as she embroidered the signature. There are two such cloths in the Melrose collection. One will be on display at Saturday s exhibit. Melrose was also an early destination for those who the songs, said Tri-Centennial Manager Ron McBride, they are amazing. You can feel the love and admiration these musicians have for their home town and the Cane River area. Some titles include, This is Our Town, the title song from the CD, Cane River, Back to Natchitoches, Cane River Blues, Hey Santa, Calling Home, Love Makes it Christmas, Reflections on the Cane, Cornbread, Way Cool, Down by the River, and Meet Me on Main Street. The songs are expressions from the artists and each has its inspiration shared on the CD jacket. The event will include an introduction and comments from the winning artists, followed by the song played live. The event is free and open to the public. For information call Ron McBride, at or wanted to learn about history. From school groups to club ladies, many found their way to Melrose to soak up the art and history. Henry compiled hundreds of scrapbooks on a wide range of subjects that now form the foundation of the Cammie G. Henry Research Center at NSU. Inquiries from around the world come into the center every year as scholars continue to take advantage of Henry s huge volumes of work.

12 2B THE NATCHITOCHES TIMES Weekend Edition, August 9-10, 2014 Preservationists frown on abrasive cleaning of grave markers By Mary Striegel At NCPTT we get a lot of calls and s concerning cemetery care and preservation. A question came in this week from Linda Ellis of Lyndhurst, Ohio. I decided to post her question and our response because lots of people may have the same question. Question: I am writing to inquire if you have ever studied the effects of using a Nyalox nylon brush attached to a power drill type tool on the surface of a gravestone? Answer: NCPTT spent the last eleven years working in cemeteries and developing sensitive cleaning methods for grave stones. Researchers and conservators at the Center have approached conservation of cemeteries with the utmost care. Since 2003, we worked with cemeteries across the country and applied professional standards such as the Secretary of Interior s Standards for Historic Preservation and the American Institute for Conservation s Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Practice. NCPTT held annual cemetery preservation workshops, created videos documenting cemetery care, and published research on cleaning grave markers. Our number one principle for cleaning grave markers is Do No Harm. This means that we think about the long term as well as short term effects on the material. We documented damage from power washers and power How BIG does your garden grow?

Save the co-pay and go play in your own state Louisiana Department of Culture, Recreation & Tourism tools that were incorrectly used in historic cemeteries. We conducted research on the effects of surface texture on deposition of pollutants on marble and limestone When stone surfaces are roughened, they can capture and hold more pollutants, moisture, and microbes. This may lead to greater soiling in the future and an accelerated rate of deterioration. Our research into pollution deposition on marble and limestone shows that there is chemical attack along the grain boundaries of the stone. This type of weathering leads to dissolution of the glue that holds the grains of stone together. As the weathering progresses, the grains loosen and become sugary. You can wipe your hand Ready to beat the summer heat, seven year old Blakely Tyler went to Salon Rouge and chopped off her long locks. She then donated the hair to Locks of Love. Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. For information go online to Pantene also accepts hair donations. For more information on their process go online to pantene.com and look through the guidelines under the Beautiful Lengths tab. The role of Pantene is to help women grow long, strong, beautiful hair and to provide the funds to turn this hair into free, real-hair wigs for women with cancer. So far, Pantene has donated 24,000 free real-hair wigs to the American Cancer Society s wig banks, which distribute wigs to cancer patients across the country. To see if you are eligible to receive a free wig or if there are wigs available in your area, please call the American Cancer Society s Wig Bank Line at GUIDELINES FOR DONATIONS By Dan Gill LSU AgCenter Horticulturist Some of the most beautiful flowers of the summer garden are produced by vines. Because vines climb, the flowers are often produced at eyelevel or overhead, allowing the gardener the chance to easily smell the fragrance or closely examine the details of the blooms. Clinging vines can attach themselves to flat surfaces using roots along their stems or special structures called holdfasts. They are useful for covering the sides of buildings or walls without having to build a support. It is very important to know how a vine you intend to grow climbs. The following perennial vines are wonderful choices for Louisiana gardens and will thrive even during the blistering heat of our summer. They are best planted in full to part sun. The delicate sprays of small rosy pink flowers that adorn rose of Montana (Antigonon leptopus, also This image show the inappropriate use of a wire brush on a power drill to alter the surface of a grave marker. across a weathered headstone and see granules on your fingertips. Biological factors can cause damage to stone as well. NCPTT funded research at Harvard University shows that fungal spores can penetrate the weathered surface of stone and carry microbes into the stone. These microbes can feed on the calcium and release acidic byproducts as a waste product, which weakens the stone. Biocidal cleaners are recommended to minimize biological damage. NCPTT does not advocate the use of power tools to clean headstones. The use of such tools can abrade and remove granules from weathered marble and limestone. We do not advocate grinding, re-lettering, or polishing headstones as this alters the original surface of the grave marker. The company that makes Nyalox brushes compares their performance to wire brushes, which are much too Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable. Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid. Hair that has been bleached is not usable. If unsure, ask your stylist. Locks of Love is not able to accept bleached hair due to a chemical reaction that occurs during the manufacturing process. If the hair was bleached years ago and has completely grown out it is acceptable. Hair that is swept off of the floor is not usable because it is not bundled in a ponytail or called Rosa de Montana and coral vine) are unique and delightful. Flowering may occur all summer but is generally most abundant in late summer and fall. This native of Mexico generally freezes back during winter but grows rapidly from its roots in spring. Coral honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) is an outstanding native that is remarkably well-behaved as vines go. The tubular coralred flowers are produced in clusters at the ends of shoots that often dangle gracefully from this twining vine. The evergreen foliage is a distinctive blue-green with silvery undersides. Flower production is generally heaviest in early summer but continues throughout the season. The attractive, but scentless, flowers are irresistible to hummingbirds. The resemblance of evergreen wisteria (Millettia reticulata) to Chinese wisteria is quite noticeable. Less unruly than Chinese wisteria, the evergreen wisteria is still best harsh for a stone surface. Would you use a Nyalox brush on a power drill to clean the surface of your automobile? If not, then you would not use it to clean a grave marker. Seven year old donates long locks to kids in need Blakely Tyler Before After braid. Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable. Locks of Love cannot accept dreadlocks. They also cannot accept wigs, falls, hair extensions or synthetic hair. Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches. Layered hair may be divided into multiple ponytails. Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches. 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece. Summertime means summer vines used in situations that provide it with plenty of room to grow. With its dark green, shiny foliage and dangling clusters of deep purple, fragrant flowers, this twining vine looks outstanding on arbors, pergolas and fences. Akebia (Akebia quinata) is another outstanding choice for arches, arbors and pergolas. This twining vine has slightly glossy, five-part evergreen leaves that are dark green and provide a beautiful background for the clusters of dusky purple flowers. The flowers are most numerous in April and May but continue to appear all summer. Two vines related to each other and similar in appearance are the cypress vine (Ipomoea quamoclit) and cardinal vine (Ipomoea multifida). I love to let these delicate twining vines weave themselves among other plants and climb up small trees and trellises. They tend to self-seed, so watch for seedlings, and don t allow them to grow where they are unwanted. The moonflower vine (Ipomoea alba) is the queen of the evening garden. This vine rapidly unfurls large, fragrant, white flowers at dusk, and the large heart-shaped leaves form a wonderful background. This large vine grows luxuriantly in the sultry Louisiana summer and is perfect when planted by a patio or in a container on a balcony. Vines add so much to our gardens it would be hard to imagine doing without them. The vines mentioned here are only a few of the many that will delight you with their brilliant flowers and long blooming season. Just remember, vines, bless their hearts, have no self-control. When your invite these charming plants into your garden, you must be prepared to control and guide their enthusiasm.

14 4B THE NATCHITOCHES TIMES Weekend Edition, August 9-10, 2014 On the rocks... Bonjour Natchitoches! In this weekend s article, I am taking a different turn. Instead of designing a cocktail myself, I took a stroll down Front Street to see just what our Historic District had to offer when it came to fancy local sips. Now, one thing that I miss about New Orleans is being able to pop into any hole in the wall bar or restaurant, and baptize myself with alluring aperitifs. And, as far as I m concerned, no one beats The Court of Two Sisters Mimosa! However, I believe that as a local of Natchitoches, I should dig out and explore the Art of cocktails here in our City of Lights. So, as I strolled down by the Cane, and I remembered that Natchitoches has the Italian Creole restaurant located right by the riverbank. Since it s first day on July 4, 2013, Maglieaux s On The Cane offers a unique cuisine for locals, and travelers afar. In the past year, I ve thoroughly enjoyed their choices of seafood plates, diverse pasta, and fine wines. But, what about their cocktails? Here I am boasting about New Orleans, upset that I don t have The Court of Two Sisters or Kingfish Cocktail Bar right around the corner. Yet, I have not been fair, and I apologize that I haven t given Natchitoches a chance when it came to divine mixed drinks. Maglieaux s On The Cane offers a pretty lengthy list of cocktails from the classic Old Fashioned to the ever so popular Margarita! There were two drinks however, that stood out to me the most: The Sazerac, and the Peach Bellini. I ll give you all a small history lesson on both of these sips of Southern Louisiana, and Italy. When I lived in New Orleans, I noticed the Sazerac was diversely advertised at every bar and restaurant. Did you know that the famous A Prom to Die For runs Aug. 9 on the stage of the A.A. Fredericks Auditorium. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner starts at 6 p.m. The play is set at a high school where the student expected to be named prom queen suddenly has competition. Tickets are $25. For information, call The Cane River Writers Club will meet Saturday, Aug. 9 at 2 p.m. at the Natchitoches Parish Library.

The Natchitoches Master Gardeners will host a Lunch and Learn Series Wednesday, Aug. 13. The theme is Herb Gardening with Jan Starks from noon-1 p.m. at the and around the bottle By Morgan Lasyone Sazerac cocktail was the signature drink at the Sazerac Coffee House in Nola? This classic Louisiana aperitif consists of many mixed ingredients such as rye whiskey, simple syrup, bitters, and Pernod. Pernod is a herbal based liqueur. Henri Louis Pernod designed the absinthe recipe, and founded the Pernod Fils absinthe manufacturing company. The taste I would describe for Pernod would be laid out as a bittersweet floral licorice accent for the tongue. Next up is the Peach Bellini. Bellini s originated in Venice, Italy, concocted by Giueseppe Cipriani from 1938 to the early 40 s. Giueseppe named the cocktail with this Italian name due to the pink tint that resided in the drink s formation. The pink colorization reminded Giueseppe of the toga of a saint in a painting crafted by Giovanni Bellini ( ). Bellini was an Italian painter creating works of art in the Renaissance period. The recipe for a Bellini consists of sparkling wine, and fresh peach puree. Woo! History lessons served on the rocks! Just the way I like em. After doing my research on these world renowned drinks, I am highly impressed with Maglieaux s choice of spirits. I toast to this Natchitoches hot spot, and say thank you for crafting these fascinating, artsy, and historic drinks. BELLINI You will need: 1 Champagne Flute 2 Parts Dry Sparkling Wine 1 Part Fresh Peach Puree In your champagne flute, add your fresh peach puree, and then top off with dry sparkling wine.

15 There are a couple of positive personality traits that we over-look in today s cultural dialogue. I want you to ponder the notion of patience and obedience. In terms of believing or working toward a noble goal these two traits are paramount. Especially for the church people who are living in the great in between time. Jesus commanded us to work while we wait for His second coming. So for the church we are called to be patient and obedient. In life too, if you have a project or a goal in mind, patience and obedience are needed. Let me tell you a story: In 1894 on her seventyfourth birthday Susan B.

United Methodist Church in Montgomery has AA meetings Wednesdays at 7 p.m. Association meeting in Washington D.C. Delegates gathered at the opera house at the corner of Twelfth and F Streets were anticipating hearing their leader speak. They were not disappointed. Anthony reminded her colleagues that they were now in their fifth decade of seeking the right to vote for women. She told the assembly: We shall someday be heeded, and when we shall have our amendment to the Constitution of the United States, everybody will think it was always so, just exactly as many young people believe that all the privileges, all the freedom, all the enjoyments which woman now possesses always were hers. They have no idea of how every single inch of ground that she stands upon today has been gained by the hard work of some little handful of women of the past. When the US House of Representatives and the US Senate finally approved what was to become the Nineteenth Amendment of the Constitution, after being rejected by every Congress for forty years, Susan B. Anthony had been dead for thirteen years. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the original drafter of the amendment, had been dead for sixteen years. These ladies were patient and obedient to the dream and vision of a woman s right to vote. Their patience and obedience were catalysts for change. How about it, are you patient and obedient to the dream God has given you for your life? If you are not sure what dream God has given you, find a church on Sunday. We can help you dream in church. Yes, the previous sentence was written that way on purpose.

On motion by Runyon and seconded by Wilson the minutes were adopted as written. Chairman Brown recognized guests Senator and Mrs. Gerald Long, Don Welch with the Black Lake Citizen s Committee and Renee Crews. There was discussion concerning dying foliage on the Cypress trees around the new bridge. Durwood Wilson gave a report on the boat ramp. He indicated that rock would be necessary on all of the boat ramps at some point. He also had met with Charles Cloud concerning the continued erosion problem at the CD Baker Boat Launch. He was waiting for an estimate and would forward it to Assistant Secretary Treasurer Steven Crews for review. There was also some discussion about dredging to allow people to use the boat ramps. Mr. Wilson will get a bid from the owner of the necessary machinery and supplies to Assistant Secretary Treasurer Steven Crews. There was then a lot of discussion concerning lake management. There was very little current flow in the lake at this time. Senator Long reported that they were having a good result on Saline Lake with the Commission Bedgood pointed out that the drawdown will help with submerged vegetation and help with the silt issues and allow for better spawning grounds. The Commissioners also discussed the possibility of additional methods of further drawdown. Assistant Secretary Treasurer Steven Crews was asked to write the Red River Waterway Commission and the Department of Transportation and Development for assistance. The recreation area was reported to be in good shape. Assistant Secretary Treasurer Steven Crews was asked to write Sheriff Jones about trash pickup at the Black Lake Dam and additional patrols on the lake while it is in the period of the drawdown. Chairman Brown advised that the fish gates needed to be repaired while the water level was low. Don Welch then gave a report on the Black Lake Citizens Committee. He advised that the CD Baker Boat Launch signs had been erected. There was also a great deal of discussion concerning the drawdown. Mr. Welch questioned the necessity and effectiveness of the drawdown. There was then discussion concerning lake clean up and the Commission decided to run a campaign in the newspaper entitled Clean Up Saturday in September for the first two Saturdays. Anyone with unattended trot lines, yo-yos or limb lines were asked to remove them prior to the clean up and the members were also going to look at removing anything driven into the lake bed. On motion by Runyon and seconded by Lonadier the Commission agreed to pay the invoice submitted for mowing and pick up at the boat ramps. On motion by Runyon and seconded by Lonadier the payment for the CD Baker Boat Launch signs was ratified. Commissioner Bedgood asked if the lake could be restocked with redfin shad and Commissioner Wilson asked if the lake could be stocked with regular black bass. On motion by Lonadier and seconded by Brown the meeting did adjourn. STEVEN D. CREWS ASSISTANT SECRETARY- TREASURER # /9 *** Garage Sale NEW SKIRTING JOBS material and installation.
