Finance America Employee Arrested For Forgery

BY SUSAN T. HERRING, Editor, The Guardian-Journal

Homer Police Chief Russell Mills arrested Jewel G. Robertson, 28, of Homer on Tuesday, July 25 for forging approximately 30 promissory notes totaling $9,975 while employed by Finance America located in the In-Mart Shopping Center on Hwy. 79 in Homer. According to Mills, the store manager noticed some discrepancies in the books while Robertson was on vacation last week and through an internal investigation discovered about 30 notes that had been forged using names of other Finance America customers. Robertson was also arrested and charged with felony theft in the amount of $2,356.40.

Robertson was transported to the Claiborne Parish Detention Center where she was booked on $30,000 bond.

Mills said the company is fully aware of the bogus notes, therefore, no customers of Finance America should be affected. Anyone who does receive a notice from the company for a balance they do not owe should contact Finance America immediately..


Claiborne Detention Center Guard Terminated

BY SUSAN T. HERRING, Editor, The Guardian-Journal

The Claiborne Parish Detention Center Corrections Officer who was transporting inmate Lonzo Nash to E. A. Conway Medical Center in Monroe on Tuesday, July 11 when he managed to escape has been terminated. Claiborne Parish Sheriff Ken Bailey said the decision to fire Banks had nothing to do with the inmate’s escape. Antonio Banks, 21, of Homer was fired Monday, July 17, for violating company policy. Prison officials discovered Banks had used a Detention Center cell phone to make personal calls. At least one call, according to Sheriff Bailey, was used to call Nash’s girlfriend.

Banks told officials that Nash escaped from the van and ran into the woods about one-half mile east of the Dubberly exit on I-20 after the transport van apparently ran out of gas. The following day, on July 12, Banks was suspended.

Last Tuesday, July 18, just one day after Banks was let go, he was arrested, along with three other adults and one juvenile, charged with simple possession of marijuana. All were transported to the Claiborne Parish Detention Center, the same facility where Banks had worked as a guard just one week earlier. Bond was set at $500 for each.

In the meantime, Lonzo M. Nash remains at large. Law enforcement personnel are continuing their search, in and out of the area.

Nash is a 34-year-old black male, 6’ 1” in height, weighing 285 pounds. He has brown eyes, short black hair and a moustache. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Lonzo Nash is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 318-927-2011.


Child Abductors Arrested

Claiborne Parish Sheriff Ken Bailey announced on Monday that four arrests had been made regarding the abduction of 9-month-old Lakynn Futch on Wednesday, July 12 from his residence on Holly Springs Road. The child was returned to the baby’s parents, Jennifer Powell and Clayton Futch, three days later after arrangements were made through the suspects’ attorney to transfer the child to the Sheriff’s Office on Saturday, July 15, who released the child to paternal grandmother Linda Futch, who was granted legal custody at the request of the baby’s parents.

Arrested Monday, July 24, by Chief Detective Chuck Talley were Jerry L. Mosley, 52, Sandra J. Mosley, 41, Timothy M. Holden, 40, and Deanna L. Holden, 34, all of Shreveport. All four were charged with simple kidnapping and booked into the Claiborne Parish Detention Center with bond set at $5,000 on each person.

If convicted, persons found guilty of Louisiana Revised Statute 14:45, the crime of simple kidnapping, shall be fined not more than five thousand dollars, imprisoned with or without hard labor for not more than five years, or both.


911 Call Results In Marijuana Arrests

A 911 call received by the Claiborne Parish Sheriff’s Office regarding a suspicious vehicle on Green Hill Road on Tuesday, July 18 led to the arrest of four adults and one juvenile according to Claiborne Parish Sheriff Ken Bailey.

Deputies Randy Pugh and Roger Ellerbe responded to the call and observed a vehicle off the roadway in the woods. Five black males were standing around the vehicle. Two began running and were observed throwing something in the woods.

Deputy Pugh called for Deputy Brian Pepper and Homer Police officers for assistance. A plastic bag containing what appeared to be marijuana was found in the woods. The K-9 was deployed and showed a response to an odor in the passenger compartment. Seeds and cigar wrappers were discovered throughout the vehicle.

Cordero J. Ewing, 17; DeCarrio D. Fisher, 19; Levar J. Hunter, 17; and Antonio D. Banks, 21, all of Homer, were arrested and booked into the Claiborne Parish Detention Center, charged with simple possession of marijuana. Bond was set at $500 on each. The juvenile was turned over to Juvenile Officer Ben Booth.


Two Arrested Soliciting Money From Motorists

Two 47-year-old men were arrested July 14 after they were found soliciting money from motorists at the intersection of La. 9 and Hwy. 79 on Thursday, July 13.

An off-duty deputy noticed a vehicle which had numerous complaints filed in the past and instructed the two men to remain at the scene until a deputy arrived. The men fled the scene, but were apprehended by Deputy Brian Pepper.

Arrested were Darryl I. Jones, 47, of Homer, and Cedric Day, 47, of Minden. Jones was charged with no driver’s license in possession and simple obstruction of a highway of commerce. His bond was set at $1,000. It was discovered that Day was a fugitive from Tarrant County, Texas, on a warrant for possession of controlled dangerous substance, Schedule II cocaine, over 28 grams. He is awaiting extradition to Texas.

THIS ROCK HOUSE BUILT IN THE 1930s on Bonner Street, now Pelican Drive, across from Homer High School, was the home of Sam and Mary Moore Simpson. Over the years, many third grade students at Homer Elementary were taught by Mrs. Simpson (or Miss Moore before she married).  Their granddaughter Shannon Penix recently sold the house to the School Board. The house will either be sold or torn down to make way for a parking lot for the new Homer Junior High. Anyone interested in purchasing the house, to be moved, should call Ronnie McKenzie at the School Board Office, 927-3502.


Bonner Street Is No More . . .

BY JIMMY DEAN, Feature Writer, The Guardian-Journal

Bonner Street is gone, sort of. It’s still there; it’s just not Bonner anymore. It’s Pelican Drive. Homer Elementary School, the soon-to-be-opened Homer Junior High School, and Homer High School are now within yards of one another, all in the Pelican Drive area. Pelican Drive used to be Bonner Street. Street.

612 Bonner Street, the old Pearson house, is gone, making way for the school complex.

606 Bonner Street—“the rock house” or “the Simpson house”—will soon be gone. The Guardian-Journal recently reported its sale to the School Board. The Board had already bought 612 Bonner Street. Now Bonner Street is gone.

Now Bonner Street is gone.

Readers may remember the rock house across from the Home Ec Cottage at Homer High. Red and Mary Simpson lived there for years. Mary taught third grade at Homer Elementary for many years, then went on to teach at Claiborne Academy a while. Mary’s husband Red lived on at 606 Bonner Street after her death.

Now Bonner Street is gone.

A visit with Shannon Simpson Penix, granddaughter of Red and Mary, sheds further light on the history of the house at 606 Bonner. Shannon says her Grandfather Red built it in the 1930s, then he and wife Mary Moore Simpson moved in. They raised their two sons Sammy and Johnny there.

Now Bonner Street is gone.

Shannon brings out a box of family memorabilia. Here are Mary’s high school and college mementos. A school banquet program. There are pictures spanning six or more decades of the 1900s. Here are several showing a rarity, snow on the front yard at 606 Bonner. Many pictures of Mary Simpson’s students over the years. Mary Simpson lived at 606 Bonner Street for 50 years as she taught over 1,000 students.

But Bonner Street is gone.

According to longtime Homer residents Lawson Guice and Pete Pearson, Bonner Street got its name from the Bonner family that lived on the street a hundred years ago. The Bonners died in the early 1900s, leaving a son Jewitt. Little else is known about them except that they gave their name to Bonner Street.

But Bonner Street is no more.


Possible Uses For Old Homer Junior High Discussed

BY SUSAN T. HERRING, Editor, The Guardian-Journal

Members of the committee appointed by the Claiborne Parish School Board to find a suitable use for the Homer Junior High building on Pearl Street met last week. School Superintendent James Scriber said he had received several requests for use of the building. The Claiborne Boys and Girls Club submitted a request in writing in May asking for use of parts of the building. Director Ron Anderson stated, “....we feel that an educational facility such as that being vacated could help us in serving and meeting the needs of more Homer youth.”

A written request was also received from the Homer-Mayfield School Reunion Organization for use of the building. Other requests came from Charles E. Sims, Director of Education Turn Around in Minden and Rev. Lester R. Scott, pastor of White Oak Grove Baptist Church in Homer.

Sims stated he would be interested in using two classrooms for the purpose of implementing the Community-Based Abstinence program. The mission of Operation Turn Around, he said, was “to provide abstinence education, leadership, character development, and adolescent risk behavior intervention against drugs, alcohol, sex and violence for the purpose of preparing young people and young adults to make healthy choices while pursuing their dreams to become self-sufficient leaders in their families, schools, communities, faith-based and careers.”

Rev. Scott expressed the desire by his church, The House of Refuge, to use or possibly own the gymnasium in the Jr. High building. He explained that a “Stop the Violence Conference” had been held April 29, with a goal of setting up programs to offer youth alternatives to violence and negativeness in our community. In the letter, Scott wrote, “Our youth are being inundated with violence”...from television, CDs, violent video games, gang activity, drugs, alcohol, and staling. He believes if youth are offered alternatives, some of the negative activities would stop.

Some of the programs being planned include Big Brother and Big Sister, Adopt A Grandchild, sex abstinence, Christian and psychological counseling, After Hours basketball, and other athletic programs.

Scriber said the building is large enough to accommodate most of these programs if the Board were to divide the building into sections which could be locked. All groups would have access to the lobby and bathrooms. The two separate buildings beside the 7th-8th grade building could also be used.  Any of the programs mentioned would be beneficial to the School Board since they would be working directly with students who are already in the school system, which would in turn help test scores.

Locating the Option 3 and Alternative School programs were ruled out due to the cost to transport students to the campus and deliver meals. Scriber said it had already been decided to keep Option 3 students on the same campus with regular ed students.

The consensus of the committee was to draw up a lease agreement with the Claiborne Boys & Girls Club for one year, to make sure the School Board would have no further need of the building before entering a more lengthy arrangement.  Since many of the board members on the Homer-Mayfield School Reunion Organization also serve on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club, it was felt something could be worked out between the two boards to allow use of the facility, which would be limited.

Scriber agreed to get with Attorney Jim Hatch to have a draft agreement prepared to present to the School Board.
