Logansport Mayor and Council Take Oath of Office for Term

Logansport Mayor and Council Take Oath of Office for Term

Prior to the Town of Logansport’s regular council meeting on Tuesday, January 12, Mayor Judge Cordray and the town council members were sworn in by Justice of the Peace for District 6, Jere’ S. Guillotte.

Incumbents returning to office include Mayor Judge Cordray, and Councilwomen Katherine Freeman and Pam H. Thomas. Cordray was easily re-elected defeating his challenger, Lyntroyce Hewitt, 405 votes to Hewitt’s 202. The leading number of votes received out of the field of candidates determines the position of Mayor Pro Tempore, with Freeman winning that position by only one vote. She received 360 votes, with new councilman Mark Woods right next to her with 359. Besides Woods new council members include Anthony Wilson and Zachary “Big Zach” Bossier.

Parish Mardi Gras Parades Cancelled Due to COVID-19 in 2021

Parish Mardi Gras Parades Cancelled Due to COVID-19 in 2021

The Grinch may not have stolen Christmas in DeSoto Parish with everyone realizing that Christmas indeed is a little bit more than ribbons, packages, lights, and decorations, but Covid has stolen yet one more of our freedoms that we all have taken for granted…the celebration of Mardi Gras, including parades. The day that we recognize as the birth of Jesus Christ was still celebrated, although in most cases were in smaller family groups and in each person’s own special way. How we celebrate Mardi Gras will once again be left up to each individual and their religious beliefs.

St. Nick Thrilled Over Enterprise’s Special Santa Section & Pastor’s Christmas Columns; Thank you, Sponsors!

St. Nick Thrilled Over Enterprise’s Special Santa Section & Pastor’s Christmas Columns; Thank you, Sponsors!

It has been a tradition for The Enterprise to team up and help Santa with his letters from DeSoto Parish, Joaquin, and Pleasant Hill children for several decades. This year with postal issues plaguing the country he needed our help more than ever.

Believe me, we did our part with special Santa letter elf Kaycee Deas, along with staff members Martha Rivers and Julie Morris typing over 18 pages of letters that expressed the children’s heartfelt wishes and want lists. To our unsung behind the scenes graphics designer for NTN, Jim McAlphin,...you did a fantastic job on the Santa Letter cover and layout while placing the letters in just the right order. We thank you!
