City works to clear up sludge in Chaplin’s Lake

Chaplin CON Dredge 1 (1)

 

The City Council voted to award the bid for dredging of Chaplin’s Lake to Merrell Bros., Inc. of Kokomo, IN for $316,400 at its meeting Dec. 12.

The out-of-state company outbid a company from Mandeville ($399,300). When asked, the company said northern lakes are frozen over and taking out-of-state jobs keeps their crew working.

Chaplin’s Lake will be dredged to 6 feet, as opposed to its current 6 inch depth at the north end that sits adjacent to the railroad tracks on University Parkway on the NSU Campus.

Sludge built up in the lake over the years, making the north end unsightly and unusable. The construction of a new clarification system at the water plant will stop the sludge from entering the water in the lake.

Work began around Jan. 19 and is estimated to last 3-4 weeks. There are three massive presses running along the banks of the lake. Pipes from the dredge pump the sediment to the presses where the water is removed. This turns the sediment into a dry, cake-like substance that’s easier to transport. One truck carries 23 yards.

Northwestern State University’s Prather Coliseum was the place to be Jan. 27 as the NSU men’s and women’s basketball teams faced off against the University of Central Arkansas. The “Pack Prather” day featured a day of basketball action, performing spirit groups, a chili cookoff and an epic dance battle between Vic the Demon and Monty, the Bank of Montgomery mascot.

The popular chili cookoff featured 13 teams this year, including several local businesses, the Natchitoches Fire Department and NSU sports teams. Hungry Demon fans thronged the hallways of Prather where they sampled the various teams’ chili and voted for their favorites. The event is a popular fundraiser for the Demons Unlimited Foundation. This year’s competition was won by the ladies of NSU Volleyball with Rutledge Plumbing and the Natchitoches Fire Department also placing in the competition.

Winners:

NSU career officially ends for Jalan West

West's NSU career ends

 

The Northwestern State basketball career of standout Jalan West has officially ended, after the Demons’ seventh-year senior did not enroll before Friday’s noon deadline to register for spring semester classes.

West left the team during the Christmas break due to personal reasons and has not played in NSU’s last eight games. He competed in eight non-conference games this season, averaging 12.3 points and 4.8 assists, after successfully overcoming two knee surgeries following his outstanding junior season in 2014-15.

The Bossier High School product was in the top 10 of all active NCAA basketball players in five career statistical categories when he departed. His 652 assists, an NSU school record, was the nation’s best total.

His 231 career steals, third all-time at NSU, was second among active players nationally. His 6.27 assists per game and his 2.23 steals average both ranked third, while his plus 2.63 assist-to-turnover ratio was fourth. West scored 1,690 career points, 10th nationally when he left the team.

Along with holding NSU’s career assists record, the 5-foot-11 point guard also holds the Demons’ single-season mark (246), along with school records for season (86) and career (230) 3-point baskets. His career .865 free throw percentage is the best all-time by any Southland Conference competitor.

Before his injury in the first game of his initial senior season in 2015-16, West had won two All-Southland Conference honors along with the 2013 Southland Freshman of the Year award. NSU won 59 games, reaching the 2013 NCAA Tournament and 2015 College Insider Tournament, in his injury-free first three seasons.

“Jalan was a tremendous player for us who helped our program to a lot of success on the court, and was a special ambassador for Demon basketball and NSU off the court,” said head coach Mike McConathy. “We want all the best for him and his family going forward. He will always be a beloved member of our basketball family at Northwestern State University.”

Another accomplished senior, Bossier native Devonte Hall, left the team earlier in December for personal reasons and will not play again, said McConathy. Hall averaged 10.3 points and 5.4 assists in the last two seasons, and 5.8 points and 2.3 assists in eight games this season. He finished eighth all-time on NSU’s career assists rankings with 379.

Hall is completing work on his undergraduate degree this spring. West earned his undergraduate degree in 2016.

“Devonte was a leader in our community service endeavors and in the classroom, and he gave us great effort and production stepping into the point guard position beginning in his sophomore season, when Jalan got hurt,” said McConathy. “Basketball just wasn’t fun for him any longer and that’s fine. He’s focused on his academics, he’s going to graduate, and he will be successful in life.”

The Demons have graduated almost 90 percent of their student-athletes during McConathy’s 19 years as head coach. Ten players posted grade point averages of 3.0 or better during the fall 2017 semester.

NSU, which began the season with the fifth-youngest roster in college basketball, plays host to Central Arkansas Saturday afternoon at 3 in Prather Coliseum.

 

NSU’s Demons Unlimited Foundation receives six-figure gift from loyal alumni

Bryant, Heloise Lewis Fork Em

 

Former Northwestern State football player Bryant Lewis and his wife Heloise have made another six-figure gift to support NSU Athletics through the Demons Unlimited Foundation.

They donated property to the DUF, which then realized a net gain of $118,000 from a sale.

The proceeds are being directed toward NSU Athletics’ annual scholarship fund, to support football recruiting, and to fund a long-planned renovation of the N-Club Hall of Fame display in Prather Coliseum, said NSU director of athletics Greg Burke.

Mr. and Mrs. Lewis made a $500,000 gift in 2015 which supported extensive renovations at Turpin Stadium, including replacing original chairback seating with all purple chairs featuring fan-friendly amenities.

“The Bryant Lewis family is appreciated for its continued, generous support that will better position our athletic program for success,” said Burke. “There is a tremendous amount of momentum for our university right now and that, in turn, provides an opportunity to better solidify the athletic foundation. The key to doing so will be continuing to secure contributions from alumni and friends.”

The gift will help underwrite annual fund expenses which support the athletic department budget that includes scholarships and other essential operating costs.

Some of the gift has been designated to support recruiting efforts for Demon football under the leadership of new head coach Brad Laird.

Another portion of the funds will help NSU Athletics modernize the N-Club Hall of Fame display, honoring the greatest competitors in school history while commemorating significant achievements through more than a century of competition.

A link (http://www.nsudemons.com/sports/2016/4/5/facility-enhancements.aspx) provides conceptual images of the renovations and other NSU Athletics facilities projects in development.

Burke expressed gratitude to NSU Foundation executive director Drake Owens for helping facilitate the legal aspects of the latest Lewis gift.

Donations of all sizes provide vital, continuing support to NSU Athletics.

The goal is to grow the DUF endowment, through outright donations or deferred gifts, over the next five years from the current $1.8 million level to over $5 million. So far, gifts have come from former athletes and their families, supporters of the university and most notably, iconic retired president Dr. Randy Webb and his wife, Brenda.

The program is separate from the efforts to supplement the annual budget for the athletics program with donations, corporate partnerships and special fund-raising events.

McCutcheon Honors Recital to be held Jan. 30

Honors Recital

 

The Mrs. H.D. Dear Sr. and Alice E. Dear School of Creative and Performing Arts at Northwestern State University will present the annual McCutcheon Honors Recital on Tuesday, Jan. 30, at 7:30 p.m. in Magale Recital Hall. Admission is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the recital.

Each year student winners are chosen from each musical area for the most outstanding fall jury performance. These students represent the areas of woodwinds, brass, strings, piano, percussion and voice.

Those chosen to perform are Oniluz Melendez Carrillo of Natchitoches on flute, Ronald Rodriguez of Cartegena, Colombia, on piano, Addison Pellegrino of Fort Worth, Texas, on marimba, Cesia Corrales of San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on viola, Sebastian Alfaro Fontalvo of Cartegena, Colombia, on trumpet and tenor Jenson Wall of Denham Springs.

This recital was established to honor Jim McCutcheon, a retired band teacher, who was active in instrument repair at NSU. McCutcheon wanted to do something to recognize outstanding student performance at Northwestern State and began offering a financial prize to those students selected to perform in the recital. After his death, his wife, Jo Lapeyrouse, chose to continue this tradition and has funded a scholarship in his name.

 

Catholic Schools Week Spotlight: Aaron Howell

 

St. Mary’s Catholic School in Natchitoches is joining the celebration for National Catholic Schools Week by showcasing what makes education at St. Mary’s outstanding.

Monday’s Spotlight features Aaron Howell, a 17-year old student who’s attended St. Mary’s for 13 years. He is a member of the National Honor Society, FBLA, FCA and Beta Club. He plays quarterback on the football team, which he’s been on since the fourth grade. He plays forward on the basketball team, which he joined in seventh grade.

Howell plans to attend Northwestern State University on a football scholarship and major in nursing. He’s always wanted to help people, so he plans on becoming a nurse anesthetist.

“I enjoy going to St. Mary’s because of the family atmosphere,” said Howell. “It’s a close-knit group and the teachers are nice and help the students as much as possible. St. Mary’s has taught me character and leadership skills through the sports I play. It’s taught me responsibility.”

Celebrated annually at the end of January, St. Mary’s has organized a whole week of activities to show what its students are accomplishing and to celebrate the community it’s built, educating tomorrow’s citizens and church leaders.

This year’s theme is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.” The theme encompasses the core products and values that can be found in Catholic schools across the country.

“Not only are we teaching students to become future servant leaders, faith-filled disciples and enriched citizens in our communities, educators are growing with them,” said St. Mary’s Principal Andrea Harrell. “In Catholic schools, we are all learners, servants and leaders. These shared qualities are what make Catholic schools work. They are what make Catholic schools succeed.”

The theme also focuses on key elements of Catholic education: faith development, academic excellence and dedication to service. These elements set Catholic schools apart from other educational options. They are why families make sacrifices to provide their children with Catholic education.

“I hope the community will join us for our All School Mass Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 9 am in the school gym and again Friday, Feb. 2 at 6:30 am in the St. Mary’s chapel for Mass, Adoration and Benediction,” said Harrell. “Please bring your friends and neighbors, particularly those who may be considering Catholic education for their service.”

Howell said participating in prayer at St. Mary’s is a really cool experience. “With 400 kids it feels like a big family meeting,” he said. “It’s cool to see that number of people devoted to one thing.”

City plants trees in City Park for Arbor Month

Arbor Month 2018

The Natchitoches City Council passed a proclamation at its meeting Jan. 9 declaring the month of January, 2018 as Arbor Month in the City.

Mayor Lee Posey helped put some dirt around trees being planted in City Park Jan. 26. These trees are just the beginning of some landscaping that will be done in the park.

Arbor Day was first observed in 1872 when J. Sterling Morton proposed a tree-planting day to the Nebraska Board of Agriculture and on April 10 of that year, sponsors estimated that over 1 million trees were planted on the first Arbor Day. Since then, this day has become an annual observance throughout the nation and the world, celebrating the role of trees in our lives and promoting tree planting, care and conservation.

Trees can lower heating and cooling costs, clean the air and provide habitat for wildlife. They are a renewable resource, which is used to make paper, building materials for construction, fuel for fires, and countless other wood products.

The City understands more than ever, the importance of trees. It is committed to an effective ongoing program that provides direction, technical assistance, public attention and recognition for ongoing efforts to the value of trees in the community.

Kevin’s Gallery

Downtown Natchitoches played host to a tradition observed by Scots the world over for more than 200 years as the Natchitoches Society of Mislocated Scots and Assorted Celtic Friends gathered to celebrate Burns Night. The gatherings honor Robert Burns, Poet Laureate of Scotland, born on Jan. 25, 1759 by celebrating his life, literature and Scottish culture.

More than 35 people from Natchitoches and Alexandria gathered at this year’s dinner. Alexandria bagpiper Rudy Lenaerts played an impromptu bagpipe concert for the crowd outside. He later piped with Alan McMurty and Sandy McNeely as they presented the Haggis, a traditional Scottish dish and a centerpiece of every Burns night, by marching through the crowd carrying it while guarded by a sword wielding Truman Maynard. Society head Sandy McNeely started the festivities with a recital of “Address to a Haggis.” After dinner, there was a traditional series of toasts and a poetry reading by former Louisiana Poet Laureate, Dr. Julie Kane. The evening concluded with a silent auction of various items related to Scottish culture.

Pitchers sharp during opening day of spring practice

NSU Baseball 2018

The first official day of practice for the 2018 Northwestern State baseball team had the feel of a Friday night game.

Highlighted by a well-pitched, seven-inning scrimmage, the Demons took the field as a unit for the first time Friday afternoon, leaving second-year head coach Bobby Barbier with plenty of positive takeaways.

“It’s good to get back out here,” Barbier said. “We talk about working every day, but the first day of practice does mean something. It’s exciting. We came out with good energy. We played really good defense in the scrimmage, and that’s exciting to me. It’s good to see the product we worked for to this point.”

Northwestern State pitchers were stellar during the scrimmage allowing just one run that came on a deflected RBI single.

The scrimmage followed a typical day of practice for the Demons, who open the regular season in three weeks against Binghamton. First pitch for the Feb. 16 season opener is set for 6:30 p.m.

Barbier praise his team’s dedication across the holiday break as Friday marked the first time since wrapping up the Rhodes Properties Fall World Series in early November the team took the field together.

“We don’t get much time to get them ready so you have to rely on those guys, especially pitchers, doing things on their own,” Barbier said. “It seems like they did a good job. Guys came back in good shape. It was a good first day.”

 

Two suspects caught sneaking contraband into DC

Jewitt and Kelly

Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force Agents and Natchitoches Parish Sheiff’s Office Corrections Center Deputies arrested two suspects for bringing contraband into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center grounds.

According to a Task Force Official, Kenwick Jewitt (B/M 38) and Betty Kelly (B/F 36) were taken into custody Jan. 23 at the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center by NPDC Deputies who noticed suspected marijuana in plain view in their vehicle. Upon searching the driver, Kenwick Jewitt, NPDC deputies located .4 grams of suspected methamphetamine, 11 suspected Morphine pills and 1 suspected crack cocaine rock on his person.

The Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force were called to assist in the investigation and obtained a search warrant for the vehicle. The search of the vehicle yielded 3 grams of suspected marijuana, 1 suspected ecstasy pill and a .38 caliber revolver handgun, which was confirmed stolen from a local business.

NMJDTF agents also conducted 2 search warrants in connection with this investigation at the residence of suspect Betty Kelly at 500 North St. Apt. E-3 and the residence of Kenwick Jewitt at 319 Carver St. both in the city limits of Natchitoches. As a result agents located approximately 1.2 ounces of suspected methamphetamine at 500 North St. Apt. E-3. No evidence was located 319 Carver St.

Suspect Betty Kelly was an employee of Aramark Food Service Corporation which is contracted to provide food services for the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center.

Both suspects were placed in NPDC and charged with the following:

Kenwick Jewitt B/M 28

1 count R.S. 40:966E simple possession of marijuana
2 counts R.S. 40:966C Possession of schedule I drugs
2 counts R.S. 40:967 Possession of Schedule II drugs
1 count R.S. 40:982 Second or subsequent offenses
1 count R.S. 14:95E Possession of a firearm in the presence of CDS
1 count R.S. 14:95.1 Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
1 count R.S. 14:69.1 Possession of a stolen firearm
1 count R.S. 14:402 Introduction of contraband into a penal facility

Betty Kelly B/F 36

1 count R.S. 14:402 Principal to introduction of contraband into a penal facility.

The Natchitoches Parish Detention Center is a corrections facility and all vehicles and persons that enter the facility are subject to search at anytime. This safety measure is crucial in order to provide a safe environment for both employees and inmates at the facility. It is a felony to bring weapons, narcotics or any other contraband on to the grounds of NPDC.

The Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force would like to thank the Citizens of Natchitoches for their support. Many times an investigation begins with a simple phone call or tip from a concerned citizen. For this reason the Task Force encourages all citizens to report any crimes in their neighborhoods anonymously by calling 318-357-2248, The Natchitoches Police Department, or the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.
