United States Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced that former sheriff Royce Edward Toney, 64, of Monroe, was sentenced Tuesday to six months home confinement, four years of supervised release and a $15,000 fine. Toney pleaded guilty on Aug. 2 to eight counts of fraud and related activity in connection with computers.

The month of January has been such a busy one for the Glen View Kindergarten students. The students are becoming familiar with different types of books and texts. We have been enjoying reading our books on our own and have begun writing and illustrating short stories.
The students have benefited from all the January/February math activities and wonderful hands-on activities learning numbers one to 20. One of the favorite activities for the students was making predictions on if the groundhog would see his shadow.
CHOUDRANT — Choudrant residents can expect a slight break in their home insurance premiums this year.
At the Nov. 7 Village Council meeting, Mayor Bill Sanderson, who also serves as the village’s fire chief, revealed that the Property Insurance Association of Louisiana, the organization that hands out fire ratings in the state, has upgraded the Village of Choudrant’s fire rating from a Class 5 to a Class 4 rating.
“This is going to be great savings for homeowners,” Sanderson said.
