  1. My Dad, Irving Zeidman, was a student at Northestern. He married Mother, Hazel Elnora Bandy from West Monroe, La., in Natchitoches on December 14, 1941 at the Methodist Church (by the Episcopal Minister since the Methodist preacher had emergency appendectomy). I have been told he was the soloist on the lead boat at the Christmas parade. He soon was drafted in WWII and left for the Army. do you have any history of the Christmas boat show dating back to 1941?

  2. Can you find out more about the road closure on Hwy 119 in front of Magnolia Plantation? I live right past the closure on Hwy 484 and I commute to Alexandria every day for work. I contacted the DOT and they are very vague about the time frame. I was told “The slide that is not on state right-of-way has encroached upon the road to the point of forcing an emergency closure until a project can be bid. However, local traffic will have access during the closure.” Local traffic does not have access. I understand that the road needs to be repaired, but they need to at least give us a time frame.

  3. Two years ago I moved here and find that I dearly love Natchitoches. However, no place is perfect as no people is perfect. That being said, I have friends that live in the mobile home park on South Drive behind Lott Oil. Having been there several times, I am wondering why raw sewage is spilling out and laying in places near the homes. Is this not a public health issue? I have concern for the children who live and play here. I’ve
    been told that the city sewer pipe is too small to move the sewage and therefore has been cutoff, literally, which leaves the sewage to flow into the yards. In my opinion the health of the children should be just as important as their education.
    If there is someone who cares enough to fix this situation, please help these people. This is Natchitoches.

  4. I commented on a post 2 days ago. It was sent to the moderator. When I emailed and questioned about it, that was the response I got. My comment was never posted. I wonder how many others this is happening to? An opinion is opinion, and I stated mine, just like everyone else. If this is a public forum, then you don’t get to pick and choose , you post it whether you like it or not. BOTTOM LINE!!

  5. I’d like to know why all comments aren’t posted or edited before posting in regards to certain topics along with why peoples personal information isn’t properly edited before posted. I personally know two peoples comments on the bridge post were never made public.

  6. The Natchitoches parish journal is 100 % better then our local paper is or ever will be.I like it because the storys are better and up to date and also
    the people of Natchitoches can voice there opinions.There is a lot that is good about our city and a lot that needs repair,it is always good to hear from the people.
    keep up the great work !

  7. With fiber optics being put in up and down hwy 6, why can’t the village of Robeline get hi speed internet? They say it’s for the schools but we as tax payers are paying taxes for the schools. Does anyone know anything about this?
