LEDD discuss economic situation in LaSalle Parish

The Jena Airport was one of the main topics up for discussion at the recent monthly meeting of the LaSalle Economic Development District (LEDD) Board of Directors held at Jena Town Hall. LEDD President Walter Dorroh Jr. said that due to the current economic situation in the area, Airport Manager Patrick Newcomb has taken a new job in another state. Newcomb was formerly employed as the pilot for the Justiss Oil Company.

Dorroh said he recommends that for the present time Newcomb would remain as airport manager and he informed Board members that he is willing to continue working with LEDD from afar. Dorroh said Newcomb will help the board sort out expenses with engineers, etc. and that Dorroh and Board member Tom Kendrick will handle on-site matters that arise.

Annual Food Drive for Cenla underway

SuddenLink/Altice and the Food Bank of Central Louisiana are kicking off the 10th annual food drive “Connecting To Those in Need” and need your help to make it successful this year. As you know, needy families in our community go without proper food, shelter, and essential medical care every day due to a variety of factors. While all of us are susceptible to hard times, children and the elderly are the most at risk, and they make up the largest number of clients served by the food bank and local pantries.
