Very Important Announcement
Shortly after being elected as your State Representative, we began searching for ways to bring high-speed broadband to the Poland, Echo, and Cheneyville areas. Last year we filed a Grant request with the USDA for multiyear funding under the ReConnect program. This is a Federal program designed to make high-speed broadband available to areas that have never had any service. The Poland, Echo, and Cheneyville areas of District 27 were the only communities that qualified under this particular Grant program.
Thanks to many of you who filled out affidavits of need, we were able to secure this Grant. This Wednesday morning the USDA will announce the awarding of that Grant to bring broadband to our areas. Please join me in celebrating this big event.
My goal is to make affordable, and reliable high-speed broadband available to every family and business in our District. This is a big step towards reaching that goal.
I hope to see you this Wednesday morning at 10:30 at Poland Jr. High School.
Merry Christmas!!!

This Sunday evening we will be having the 32nd Annual God and Country program at the church. During the program we will hear a word from our guest speaker, Raymond J. Crews.

Mr. Crews is the son of a Texan and a German immigrant, Raymond was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and subsequently lived in Illinois, Louisiana, West Virginia, Texas, and North Dakota.

After college at Texas A&M University, Raymond attended Air Force flight training in Del Rio, TX. Following survival training and combat crew training, his first assignment was to Carswell AFB, TX as a B-52 pilot. As a consequence of the base’s closure, he was reassigned to Minot AFB, ND. While in North Dakota he met and married Dianah Wargo. Shortly after, they moved to Barksdale AFB, LA.

After the completion of his Active Duty commitment, Raymond was employed by Northwest Airlines, which later merged with Delta Airlines. During his time as an airline pilot, his children Caitlin and Joshua were born. He applied to join the Air Force Reserve although no openings were available until after 9/11. The terror attacks brought a transition from full-time commercial flying to full-time military flying. Deployments to the United Kingdom and Diego Garcia took him away from family for months.

His deactivation brought a new challenge when it was discovered he had diabetes. At first, it appeared he would be out of two jobs, but over time he learned to manage the disease without requiring insulin. This allowed him to return to airline flying, but the military would only allow non-flying duties. Unfortunately, his condition deteriorated until insulin therapy was unavoidable. At that time, this circumstance precluded continuance of either career.

He and two Air Force friends started small businesses which support their families today.

Raymond was raised as a Lutheran as a result of his German heritage, but became a Baptist after moving to Lousiana. He and Dianah found those beliefs best matched their own. After serving as a Sunday School teacher for several years, he was chosen to serve as a deacon and then Chairman of the Deacons at First Baptist Bossier. When his term in that capacity ended, he asked The Lord what He would have Raymond do next. Louisiana State Representative was the answer. And that’s where he met Chuck Owen.

Raymond and Dianah have lived in Bossier City for nearly 25 years. Their children attend Louisiana Tech. Dianah also served in the Air Force but her avocation and love is teaching. She retired from teaching at a classical Christian school, but continues to tutor and teach on a part time basis. Raymond continues to fly privately to advance his businesses, visit family, and witness the glory of God’s creation.

Please come out and hear his story and enjoy the program with us. There will be a fellowship banquet afterwards.
