Nolen’s Towing and Recovery Honored with Ribbon Cutting by DeSoto Chamber

The DeSoto Chamber of Commerce was honored to hold a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony welcoming Nolen’s Towing and Recovering Service as the newest business in Mansfield. Guests were treated to cake, cookies, and coffee as they toured the business located at 13712 Hwy 171. It was owner Randy Nolen’s birthday, giving the business and him a double reason to celebrate, along with his wife, Monica.

Roy and Paula Nolen, who are the parents of Randy, originally founded the business in 1967 in Coushatta. There are now three locations of Nolen’s with the newest one being in Mansfield. The location in Coushatta, the original, offers paint and bodywork as well as their wrecker service. The Bossier location is a wrecker service location only, and the Mansfield business services towing needs. They Nolens have future plans to add other services as the business grows and the need arises for expansion. Randy and Monica took over the business in 2000.

African Artifact Collection on Display at Mansfield Main Library

Throughout the month of February, the Mansfield Main Library is proudly displaying some of William “Butch” Spencer’s African artifacts. These interesting handcrafted artifacts depict the culture and imagination of its country’s citizens.

Spencer stated, “During my travel adventures on the continent of Africa (see countries below), I have become enchanted with the local people and their handicrafts. These pieces of folk-art have been created and fashioned by individuals with “NO” formal training – using only their creativity and imagination. The items are produced from local and recycled materials to assist, sustain and to provide an income for the family. It is out of necessity that these local people had to learn to address the political and socioeconomic freedoms that they have been “robbed” of.”
