Lt. Uzella Frazier, Chief Investigator Bobby Sheppard and Deputy Stephen Karabelen will teach D.A.R.E. in the parish's public and private schools this year. The Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office began teaching D.A.R.E. in Concordia in 1991.

This year's major tournament sponsors are Delta Bank, Sports Center/Rex, Performance Food Group, Rosco & WQNZ, 95-Country, Shakespeare Fishing Tackle, Cherokee Sign Co., Global Tel Link, Peregrine Solutions, BASF and Bryan's Marine.
"We're looking forward to good weather and a huge turnout for this year's fishing tournament," commented Sheriff Randy Maxwell. "From the number of people already asking about it, I look for us to have a record number of children out there fishing with their folks. Last year, there were about 600 children signed up for the event. This has grown to be one of the biggest and best youth fishing tournaments in the State of Louisiana."
"I really want to thank the dozens of volunteers who make this tournament happen, as well as the hundreds of merchants who contribute financially each year. It takes all of us working together to make this grow and be the continuing success it's been year after year," the Sheriff added.
For further information concerning making a financial contribution to the tournament or registering children for the event, contact Debbie Gee or Jennie Tarver at the Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office, 318-336-5231, 757-3162 or 386-2200.
