Young Marines donations —

The Bossier Sheriff’s Young Marines program received two separate donations recently. (Left photo) Disabled Veterans of Louisiana Chapter 1 of Shreveport/Bossier donated $5,000 to Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington on Tuesday. At the check presentation were (from left) Bill Lane, Posse member and retired Air Force; Hank Haney; Lloyd Boley; Mike Cox; Sheriff Whittington; Lloyd Helms, DVL adjutant and retired Air Force; Jim Roat; and John Courter, DVL commander and retired Army. The sheriff’s office, which hosts the youth program, was denied federal grant funding earlier this year when Sheriff Whittington refused to remove voluntary prayer and God from the program.

Estess, president of the Sons of Italy Heritage Club, and club member Digilormo coordinated the “In god We Trust” fish fry fund-raiser to support the youth program on Sept. 11 at the City Tele-Coin Company in Bossier City.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
