That means on average two families lose a loved one each day. They could be our friends, neighbors or the family down the street. It can happen to any family.

Jury has no attorney for Malone trial

in

FARMERVILLE — A trial is scheduled for Sept. 28-29 in connection with a suit filed by the Union Parish Police Jury against Karl Malone in connection with a fence Malone had installed across what the Police Jury maintains is a public road.
