DeSoto Chamber Hosts Ribbon Cutting for Mansfield Collision Center

DeSoto Chamber Hosts Ribbon Cutting for Mansfield Collision Center

On Wednesday, June 17, the DeSoto Parish Chamber of Commerce held a Ribbon Cutting ceremony for Mansfield Collision Center, located at 11447 Hwy 171 N, just north of Mansfield. The business is owned by Franklin “Frank” Walker and officially opened its doors for business on March 20, 2020. While she doesn’t work at the business, Frank’s wife Shanda is there to lend her husband’s operation moral support.

Originally from Haskell, Oklahoma, where he was born and raised, Walker moved to Louisiana in 1996. At the time he was working for Sherwin Williams Automotive Finishes. He has owned a similar shop in Shreveport for 15 years, but he wanted to get closer to home.

DeSoto Parish is the home Frank is referring to, where the Walkers have lived for the last 23 years. Originally looking to open his business in Stonewall, the Walkers decided the location between Grand Cane and Mansfield on Highway 171 was ideal for their needs.

Rep. Johnson Speaks on Joining Lawsuit Against Pelosi’s Unconstitutional Proxy Voting Scheme

Article Image Alt Text

U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04), Ranking Member of House Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, joined House Republicans on May 27 to discuss the details of the lawsuit that he and 20 of his Republican colleagues filed yesterday to overturn Speaker Pelosi’s proxy voting rule.

Pelosi’s rule runs counter to both the Constitution and the over 230-year precedent of members of the House assembling inperson to consider legislation. Under the rule, as few as 20 members can control the votes of 220 members.

Johnson made the following remarks as delivered:

“Listen, for 20 years before I got to Congress, I litigated Constitutional law cases at federal courts around the country. I had some difficult cases on occasion- this is a really easy one. I brought along a little visual aid here for our Democratic colleagues.

In Flanders Fields – A Memorial Day Tribute

In Flanders Fields – A Memorial Day Tribute

Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, a noted Canadian physician before the war, served with Canada’s First Brigade Artillery as a surgeon at a field hospital in Belgium. As he worked within sight of poppies blooming across old battlefields and fresh graves, he crafted a poignant testament against war and wasted lives that arguably became the Great War’s most famous poem, “In Flanders Fields.” McCrae himself died from disease in 1918, the war’s last year.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

DFD 1 Observes “We Remember” Night Honoring First Responder Suicides

DFD 1 Observes “We Remember” Night Honoring First Responder Suicides

First responders, who include firefighters, police officers, EMS personnel, medical personnel, disaster relief workers, and coroners, typically arrive early to incidents involving harm to people or property. The nature of their work exposes them to death, grief, injury, pain, and loss, coupled with demanding schedules, physically challenging job requirements, and a lack of safety and security in certain work situations. In DeSoto Parish, many of our First Responders are volunteers that serve out of love for their community and neighbors. Chances are the DeSoto First Responders that come to your aid will know you or your family members.

Repeated exposure to death and destruction can result in emotional trauma, which can lead to mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTDS, and in the worst cases, suicide. Ironically, the May 15 event fell on the day before the anniversary of DeSoto Fire District 1’s former chief, Rusty Canton’s death by suicide.

Groups Urge LA to Use CARES Act Funding to Address Educational Inequities

Education advocates are urging state leaders in Louisiana to use the millions of dollars the state is receiving in federal emergency funding to eliminate education inequities and support children and families disproportionately affected by the covid-19 school closures.

The Louisiana Department of Education is set to receive nearly$287 million in education funding through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and at least 90 percent of those funds will go directly to local education agencies across the state. The law gives the state and districts significant discretion on how these funds are spent.
