Our “WOW” this time goes out to the Nicholls State football team on their great victory Saturday against Conference foe, Northwestern State Demons.  During the week prior to the game, I issued a challenge to Mayor Wayne McCullen of Natchitoches that the losing team would fly the winning city’s flag over City Hall.  This was quite a victory for Nicholls since Northwestern was ranked 15th in the nation. Now we can all enjoy seeing Mayor McCullen (pictured left) post our colors over Natchitoches City Hall!

As we want the citizens to be proud of what we do, we also want to show our pride for what the citizens do.  Please show your support and appreciation for the Nicholls football team, who are a wonderful part of our community.  A great way to show our support would be to attend their next home game which is this Saturday, also Homecoming, against Sam Houston State.

WOW!! KEY EMPLOYEES! 

CHRIS BERGER, PUBLIC WORKS:
Elmira and Sylvia, meter readers, dropped an iron bar into the hole (surrounding area) of a big compound water meter that was full of water as well.  Chris Berger, Public Works, went out of his way by getting down into this hole and into the water and retrieved the bar for the readers.  They are very grateful for his assistance and felt he needed to be congratulated.

OFFICER JAMIE HIMEL:
A big thank you to Officer Jamie Himel of the Thibodaux Police Department for being a positive influence on the youth of our community.  Coach Jamie volunteers his time every year to coach 11 and 12-year-old boys on the Thibodaux Hurricane football team.
LT. SHERMAN BERRY:
Thank you to Lt. Sherman Berry of the Thibodaux Police Department.  Lt. Berry did an excellent job escorting the NSU football team to Natchitoches for its game against Northwestern State University this weekend.  He was off duty this weekend and volunteered his time to the University and the players.

Great job, Lt. Berry!  Keep up the good work!

 Mayor Charles Caillouet

CIVIC CENTER STAFF:
I would like to commend the crew at the Civic Center for their hard work during our Cruisin’ Cajun Rally last week.  The rally was a big success.  We had 123 coaches from members and 9 show coaches.

There were 2 staffers who deserve special thanks – Randy and Earl.  They worked really hard and were attentive to our needs.  You should be proud of these gentlemen.

OFFICER RODNEY RHODES:
Excerpts from a letter addressed to Chief Howard Robertson of the Thibodaux Police Department:

Dear Chief Robertson,

First off let me start by introducing myself. My name is ************ and I am a disabled student at NSU. I have several reasons 4 contacting you.  First off I want to commend the actions of officer Rodney Rhodes. He used to be an officer here so that’s how I know him. Anyway on Sunday 10/26 I was coming back from brunch when I see one of your cars coming. It turns out it was officer Rhodes. He stopped and we had a great conversation and he even showed me the inside of the unit he was driving and what everything was and how it operates. In my opinion he is a model for what every law enforcement officer should be….

Thank you,
