Mansfield High School Wolverine Basketball Player Trenton Colbert signed his Letter of Intent to play basketball for the LSUA Generals on Monday, November 9.

Colbert, a 6’7” Forward for the MHS team, decided to play for LSUA after visiting the school earlier this school year.

“I think Trent has made a good choice in signing with LSUA,” stated MHS Head Basketball Coach Chris Bush. “They have the best winning percentage in the State, and they have played in the NAIA National tournament for four years. Any team that consistently makes it to the national tournament at any level has to be pretty good.” Coach Bush continued about the CENLA school, “They also have a great Coach who pushes academics, community service, and faith. The focus on those three things will help to create better men and not just better players.”

State Merges with DPPJ to Fund New Road for 1-49 Industrial Park

With the State of Louisiana and funds from DeSoto Parish totaling almost three million dollars, the DeSoto Industrial Park will be realigned and improved to service multiple businesses at a park near Frierson. A portion of the funds will also be used to build new entrance roads into two other industrial parks on U. S. 84 West just outside of Mansfield and U. S. Highway 171 south.

The road to the Industrial Park is currently in such terrible shape it is prone to flooding, which leaves workers stranded. Hopefully, the new plans will alleviate these problems and encourage tenants to stay put.

Eagles Soar Over Toledo Bend as We Remember Veterans Day

Eagles Soar Over Toledo Bend as We Remember Veterans Day

The bald eagle’s role as a national symbol is linked to its 1782 landing on the Great Seal of the United States. Shortly after the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress gave Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams the job of designing an official seal for the new nation. However, the three Founding Fathers failed to come up with a design that won Congress’ approval, as did two later committees that were given the task. In mid-June 1782, the work of all three committees was handed over to Charles Thomson, the secretary of Congress. Thomson chose what he thought were the best elements of the various designs and made the eagle, which had been introduced by artistically inclined Pennsylvania lawyer William Barton in a design submitted by the third committee, more prominent. (Since ancient times, the eagle has been considered a sign of strength; Roman legions used the animal as their standard, or symbol.)
