KTBS/St. Jude Dream Home winner named

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Christie have been named the winners of this year’s KTBS 3/St. Jude’s Dream Home in Bossier City.

The single-family home is estimated to be valued at $325,000.

Built by Rodgers Home and Construction, the 2,400-square-foot home is located in the Rosedale subdivision and features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, an open living room and a two-car garage.

When asked how it feels to win the Dream Home, Mrs. Christie said, “I can’t describe how I feel. In the Bible, they speak about full of joy, joy unspeakable and full of glory, and I guess that comes pretty near to describing how I feel right now.”

Not only does the Dream Home benefit the new homeowner but also the children of St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital who are battling cancer and other deadly diseases.

For the past 24 years, St. Jude has given away more than 340 houses and raised more than $270 million through the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway campaign, the largest single-event fund-raiser for the hospital. It is because of programs like this that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel housing or food so they can focus on helping their child live.

The construction of the KTBS 3/St. Jude Dream Home would not be possible without the generous support of the community and loyal sponsors including KTBS 3, KPXJ CW21, Rodgers Homes and Construction, Bonomo Builders Inc., Designer’s Showroom, Nash FM 101.1, SB Magazine, The Shreveport Times, County Market, G&C Honda, Citizens National Bank, Porter’s Fine Dry Cleaning, ESA Sorority — Alpha Delta chapter, Trane Air Conditioning, Brizo and Shaw Floors.

The Louisiana Legislature just completed a “do nothing” session that proved to be a stalemate towards solving the state’s financial crisis. A new regular session has begun with few signs that anything substantive will come about. By law, no new tax matters can be considered in this even numbered year.

Flurry’s second objection to the ordinance is the requirement that permit application for cell towers must be reviewed by the city’s independent expert consultant. The city has been working with a national consultant who has a track record of requiring unreasonable, expensive requirements for cell tower installations.

Every five years, several ad valorem property taxes are placed before the citizens for renewals that provide basic city services and salaries/ benefits for our first responders and other city employees. The last time this occurred was 2013. In 2017 the taxes expired, and we made the decision to only go out for the taxes when necessary, and not before.
