Police chief urges caution during current heat wave

Rayville Police Chief Willie L. Robinson Sr. would like to remind people to take care of themselves and their animals during the current heat wave.

“Remember, that when the heat index is above 105 degrees, we are in a heat advisory,” he said. “This means that the high temperatures along with the high humidity can pose a threat to human life through conditions such as heat stroke. Be mindful of this when you and others are out in this heat.”

Presidential preference primary set for July 11

The presidential preference primary will be held July 11 and polls will open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

As a reminder, Louisiana law requires a picture identification card to vote at the polling place. This can include a Louisiana driver’s license, a Louisiana special ID card or other generally recognized picture identification card including a U.S. military ID card that contains your name and picture.

If you do not have a picture ID card, you may be asked to sign a voter identification affidavit.
