A lot has changed in Jena and LaSalle Parish over the past 46 years. You see, it was 46 years ago this week that I arrived in Jena to become editor of your parish newspaper. I had found out in the summer of 1967 that R. W. and Ival Wagner were wanting to sell The Jena Times and Olla Tullos Signal. After several visits, I talked them into selling it to me but since they had just sold the Catahoula newspapers that year, they wanted to wait until the first of 1968 to sell because of taxes.
