I am surprised that no one has suggested a recall of Mayor Walker. Bossier City is in decline. Look around. Trashy roads, pot holes, reduced city services, inadequate police protection, water department outsourced, many other city services slated to be outsourced. The City Council can only do so much to save the city from inept executive leadership. We need a new leader. Why is an 87-year-old guy with multiple retirements still inflicting his mismanagement on us all? We can’t wait for the election. We need to recall Lo now! What say you, South Bossier? Rise up and take back our city from incompetent leadership before it is too late! Move on, Lo, move on!

Lots of folks love animals, cats, dogs, parrots, ferrets, etc. Some love cuddly puppies and kittens than make messes inside and chew up the couch and grow up too fast. Some folks with big hearts adopt grown up animals who need homes and love just as much as when they were younger.
I am sure that many of you have heard the old adage, “politics ain’t bean bag” or “politics is a contact sport,” which is so true. Politics has always been seen as a dirty business by some Americans, and it will remain so. That is why it is called the “swamp,” because so many people think that it just swallows people up and they forget what they stand for or who they are working for.
Has anything REALLY changed at the Caddo Parish Dog Pound? Yes! It has!
With the final tackle of the NFL season behind us, the XFL just getting going and the NBA season about to have their All-Star game, the next major sport up is Major League Baseball. Over the next seven weeks I will be previewing each division as we grow closer and closer to the first pitch on March 26. Up first in my previews will be the National League East. The defending World Series Champion hails from this division in the Washington Nationals who made it to the post season by way of the Wild Card. The final standings had the Atlanta Braves winning the division with a 97-65 record, followed by the Nationals at 93-69, the New York Mets at 86-76, the Philadelphia Phillies at 81-81 and the Miami Marlins at 57-105.
I lived in Shreveport-Bossier City long enough to cotton on to north Louisiana’s concern that it’s a stepchild to in-state neighbors farther south.
Fortunately, Shreveport’s City Council has tapped the brakes twice this past month on changes to its authority under Louisiana’s Industrial Tax Exemption Program, needing to avoid bad models both local and from other parts of the state.
