Delhi examines improvements to town park

Delhi Mayor Jesse Washington has submitted an application to the National Park Service for consultation assistance on behalf of the Town of Delhi to prepare a master plan for Delhi City Park. 

RTCA has visited the site and identified potential additional outdoor recreation opportunities. The park is located on Highway 80 West in Delhi.

Ideas for the park include a place to launch kayaks and canoes, an asphalt walking trail, exercise stations along the trail, pavilions for family picnics, a dog park, a splash pad for children.

Experience proves to be advantage to judge

In 2017, voters chose the most experienced candidate for the Second Circuit Court of Appeal and elected Judge Jimbo Stephens to serve on the Second Circuit Court.

The election last year was for the open position created by the retirement of the late Second Circuit Judge Larry Lolley. This division of the Second Circuit includes all of Franklin and Richland parishes, and part of Ouachita, Morehouse and West Carroll parishes. 

Incumbent Judge Stephens will qualify to run for re-election on July 18, 2018, for a full term on the Second Circuit.

Park planning pottery program

Visitors to the Poverty Point World Heritage Site are invited to take part in a ranger-led demonstration July 7  of crafting prehistoric-styled pottery similar to the pieces which the Native Americans fashioned more than 3,500 years ago. 

The event will begin with the demonstration at 10:30 a.m. Afterward, visitors can try their hand at making their own pottery until noon.

Attendees can try their hand at creating items such as figurines, decorated artistic objects, coiled clay pots, and clay pipes – inspired by those that have been excavated from the site.
