She said Bossier Parish families no longer have to drive to Shreveport to get private music lessons.

The Bossier Parish Highway Department's sandbagging operations in Benton stayed open overnight. Thousands of sandbags were handed out yesterday by public works departments in north Louisiana. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provides the sand and bags during emergencies. Bossier Parish is using prison inmate labor to fill the sandbags.
