Garage Sale to Benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

 

Help Team Erica with their annual give back to St. Jude campaign, by shopping this supersize garage sale on Thursday, October 16 and Friday, October 17 from 8 am- 2pm at 10183 Ponder Lane in Watson. While there are too many items to list, you will find furniture, household items, toys, games, electronics, DVD/VHS movies, home décor, clothes, shoes, books and much more!

 

Team Erica was created by Watson residents, Janet and Mark Oufnac along with their daughters, Alexis, Erica, Lindsey, Rachel, and Susan in 2011, while Erica was being treated at St. Jude for Large B-cell Lymphoma. Thanks to St. Jude, Erica will be celebrating 3 years in remission this month. 100% of the sales proceeds will go to St. Jude Children’s Hospital to further their mission in finding cures for all childhood cancers.

" I live on Hwy 1019 and the traffic is bad from people taking Fore Rd to by pass the school. If I don't leave 15 minutes earlier than usual I will sit in my subdivision from the traffic back up at the stop sign and red light for over 15 minutes.."

" It is not Mr White, Valarie Hodges is our rep. I know you are talking about another problem, butI have been working with Rep Valarie Hodges on getting the intersection of La1019 and La3285(old La 16) changed. La. DOTD Traffic Operation District 62 has made a study on the traffic problems at this intersection. They are considering a round about there. I am not a fan of round abouts but I can see it would be better than what we have now. About 95%(1019) must stop for the 5% old La16 is causing back ups on 1019. Encourage Rep Valarie Hodges to continue her effort to fix this problem. She seems to be very concerned about our problems. email hodgesv@legis.la.gov."

Girl Scout Cookies Make it to Troops Overseas......

 

 A thank you  to all who had a part in this from Ms.Delanoix and Troop 10384:

 

"I have never, in my entire life, been more proud! Our cookies made it overseas! Thanks to all of the incredible support from our community we were able to send 18 cases of Girl Scout cookies! Troop 10384 wants to thank everyone who made this possible. "

 

INTRODUCING........

 

 I will post  introductions to candidates who are running for the local offices upon submission. At this time the introduction is for a candidate running for the local Justice of the Peace seat. Any candidate is welcome to send in an " introduction" along with why you feel "you" are qualified for our vote by sending your introduction to comments@watsonla.com.

 

Today's introduction:

 

Ms. DeVonna Ponthieu is running for for Justice of the Peace against Bob Seale and Jeff Sacshe

 

She is a graduate of SLU with a bachelors in Liberal Arts and a graduate of LSU Paul M. Hebert Law School in 2001. She is a practicing attorney. Ms. Ponthieu is widow with 2 boys, both of whom are boy scouts with Troop 58 (Live Oak Methodist Church). She is a Republican and attends Walker Baptist Church.

 

As a graduate of law school and a practicing lawyer for more than 10 years, she feels like she is the most qualified to fill the seat of Justice of the Peace. As a member of the LA State Bar Association, an added benefit she will have in serving as Justice of the Peace is the ability to have access to Fastcase to do any research that needs to be done on cases.
