Willis was found guilty of Attempted Second Degree Murder against the female victim after he was accused of assault that led to multiple injuries to the victim.

    Eddie D. Gillis|Aug 10, 2023

  • Shooting Suspect Captured

    Eddie D. Gillis|Aug 10, 2023

    Disclaimer: All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty. They say that a criminal suspect almost often returns to the scene of the crime. Perhaps their way of thinking is to wait until the heat cools down before they begin to venture back out. Along with community involvement, it is only a matter of time and opportunity for law enforcement to apprehend the individual on their "wanted" list. That appeared to have played out concerning a recent arrest. According to law enforcement,...

  • Dr. Ollibeth Reddix, DDS District D

    Aug 10, 2023

    Why do I want my old seat back? Four years ago, I had 91 reasons to leave the Ouachita Parish Police Jury. At 91 years of age, my Mom was finally in need of my personal care. I could not serve her and my constituents at the same time. I pride myself as a "fully in or fully out" type of person. I was not willing to half-serve my constituents. They deserved better. And I definitely wasn't going to neglect my Momma. So, for the next four years, Olee (my Momma) and I were a "thing". I thought she wo...

  • Bowman Justice Denied

    Eddie D. Gillis|Aug 10, 2023

    The recent acquittal of a White Louisiana State Trooper accused of beating a Black motorist while he was down on the ground shows Black America that nothing short of death may win a guilty verdict in a court of law. That is, perhaps, the saddest part about what it seems to take for the average Black American to receive justice stemming from incidents of brutality by police officers against Black citizens. It has only gotten worse, as we can see that Black people are being killed by the hands of...

  • Alabama Loss, Tuberville's Fault

    Eddie D. Gillis|Aug 10, 2023

    Donald Trump has been indicted again by federal authorities, and there is also one more expected from the state of Georgia in a few weeks. What was once thought as unthinkable for a former president to face the kinds of legal troubles that are facing Trump should show us that everything has its limits. As they say in sports, Trump went “to the well one too many times” and it appears that he came up dry. In addition to Trump begging for money to pay his lawyers (we thought he was a billionaire), a trial is still a long way off, leaving him to...

    Moreover, the profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field (Ecclesiastes 5:9). Greetings to the minority races of America.

  • Atomic Habits

    Jessica DeTiege|Aug 10, 2023

    In 2012, author James Clear wrote Atomic Habits, outlining how to be consistent when creating positive habits. The book focuses on the science of habits and how tiny changes can lead to remarkable results over time. The book provides a comprehensive framework for understanding how habits work and offers practical strategies for building positive habits and breaking negative ones. The concept of "atomic habits" is the minuscule adjustments we make in our daily lives that accumulate over time to create astonishing outcomes. One of my favorite...

  • Not This School Year!

    Katima Epting Wiley|Aug 10, 2023

    Every school year brings about its own reasons for worry and anxiety. Some fear not being able to provide the things their children need. Some fear not having adequate help academically. Some fear failing their children by not being able to get them the latest. Some fear school dangers. It's understandable, but the wrong mindset still. Someone has to declare, “Not This School Year!” Not this school year, because you are going to trust God. Not this school year, because you’re going to do your best and not feel bad about being unable to fulfi...
