Utility Department workers honor of their own with American Flag display

The late Jim Whitten was the director of the City Utility Department for 10 years. Utility workers paid tribute and showed their respect for one of their fallen leaders on April 29 with an American Flag display held up by bucket trucks along the route the funeral procession took from Natchitoches to a cemetery near Olla where he was born. Jim passed away April 26, 2019. Jim’s career in electrical engineering gained him much respect. He devoted many years of knowledge to his craft and was highly thought of in his profession. “He trained a lot of people and gave a lot of people a chance,” said one worker. “He was a good guy.”
