Too Busy to Vote? Then Kiss Country Goodbye Direction of State Supreme Court to Be Decided Here Saturday, Dec. 8

Woody Jenkins

Editor, Capital City News

BATON ROUGE — How can people live in the United States of America — formerly the freest country in the world (we’re now ranked the 10th freest country) — and not

vote? What is wrong with people? How can anyone watch TV or read the newspaper and not realize that this country of ours is in dire shape and getting worse rapidly? How can they sit by and find time to go to a ball game on a Woody Jenkins Saturday or watch TV or go to a parade but not find time to exercise their responsibility to vote? This Saturday, we have the runoff

election for the Louisiana Supreme Court. It is a critical election in which a conservative Republican, Jeff Hughes, is facing a moderate Democrat, John Michael Guidry. If Hughes wins, the Republicans will have a 4-3 majority on the highest court in our state, and the court will move in a more conservative, constitutionalist direction. But, based on early voting, only about 15 to 20 percent of conservative voters will go to the polls. If that happens, the Democrat candidate will probably win. Why? It’s very simple. The Democrat candidate has raised over $200,000 for the campaign. But have you seen a lot of TV spots for the Democrat? No, you haven’t. He is spending his money on the streets — on get-out-the-vote efforts in the inner city and in the river parishes. Meanwhile, conservative voters see Hughes’ spots on TV and no Guidry spots. They think, “Oh, Hughes has it in the bag!” Hardly. Conservative voters talk to their friends, and every one of their friends is voting for the Republi-

can. They think, “Oh, he’ll win in a breeze!” Hardly. The problem is, they’re just talking to their friends — people who think like they think. But that’s not who will turn out to vote. If there is anything we should pound into one another, it is that we should all take the time to be informed and vote. Recently, I’ve been reading about the secession movement. Some people say states like Louisiana should secede from the Union! Secede? Are you kidding me? People are too lazy even to vote. Do you really think they have the motivation to take up arms and fight? That’s ridiculous. If people took the time to campaign for good candidates, put up yard signs, wave signs on street corners, contribute to candidates, and vote, we wouldn’t have a problem, and no one would be talking about seceding. We’re in a transition right now — from being the freest country in the world to being the laziest country. Think me wrong? Then vote!

Conservative-Liberal Balance on Supreme Court

Runoff Saturday for Key Races Low Turnout Could Defeat Republican Efforts to Gain 4-3 Majority on Court

BATON ROUGE — With the philosophical direction of the Louisiana Supreme Court hanging in the balance, Republican hopes to gain a majority on the court in this Saturday’s election are looking dim. While Judge Jeff Hughes, the conservative Republican candidate, is narrowly leading in the polls, Judge John Michael Guidry, a moderate Democrat, has a better than 5050 chance to win, according to politi6 a.m. to 8 p.m. cal consultant Saturday, Dec. 8 Dan Richey. Based on Bring Photo I.D. early voting, To Polling Place white voters, who are more likely to favor Hughes, are expected to turn out at a rate of only 15 percent. On the other hand, Guidry is spending his money on get-outthe-vote efforts in the black community. A mere 33 percent turnout among black voters would probably elect Guidry. A Republican strategist said,

THE DEEPWATER PORT known today as the Port of Greater Baton Rouge was created in 1952 by an act of the Louisiana legislature. Construction began two years later and the first vessel, a molasses carrier called the S.S. Clarisse, called on the port in 1956. FROM THE ARRIVAL of that first ship, the port has served as an economic engine for the parishes of East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Ascension and Iberville by providing jobs and attracting industry to the region. THE OUTLOOK FOR THE PORT is very positive today in the areas of international trade, maritime commerce, manufacturing and new industrial expansion. Under the direction of the Port Commission, the Port of Greater Baton Rouge will continue to actively promote and grow the assets of this vital public maritime facility.

In addition to Randolph, the leading receiver is Tom Wing, who caught 22 passes for 361 yards and five touchdowns. Tom Wing is the brother of LSU punter Brad Wing. Defensive leaders include linebacker Hunter Brian, linebacker Ridge Womack, free safety Austin Suit, defensive back Mannie Mukes, and defensive lineman Victor Gutierrez. Guitierrez has 23 solo tackles this year, 60 assists, and nine quarterback sacks. Parkview had little trouble defeating Livonia last Friday night in the state 3A semi-finals.

Parkview and Notre Dame have met in the playoffs over the past four years. Notre Dame coach Lewis Cook, Jr. joked that Parkview and Notre Dame know each other so well that they don’t really need to exchange game films. Cook is one of the winningest coaches in Louisiana football history. His victory over East Feliciana in the semi-finals last Friday gave him an overall record of 287 wins and 75 losses as a coach, moving him into sixth place among coaches in career wins. Coach Guillot emphasized these points about Notre Dame: • “Notre Dame always has a good team, often a great team.” • “They are well coached and disciplined.” • “They have a great program.” • “Strong defense” • “Watch for their fullback, tailback, and quarterback.” • “Like coaches always say, we can’t afford turnovers or stupid

penalties.” • “We expect four quarters of hard-nosed football and a close game.” Thanks for Great Season Guillot had high praise for his coaching staff. He especially noted the contributions of offensive coordinator Scott Dietrich and defensive coordinator Jay Mayet. “We’ve been together 14 years, and they do a great job.” He mentioned the outstanding off-season work done by Coach Mayet, other coaches, and players. The Eagles have 87 players on their roster, including freshmen. One of the inspirations for the Parkview team this year was the late Samuel Brett Wimberly. Wimberly, who would have been a senior lineman, died suddenly in February after an illness led to a heart ailment. His No. 56 was retired earlier this year, the first time a Parkview player’s number has been retired. Coach Guillot said Wimberly’s lost has been difficult for the en-

Guillot said this year’s Eagle team owes a lot to the Parkview administration, faculty, parents, and the community. He said they are especially grateful to the spirit groups such as the Silver Steppers, cheerleaders, and band. “You have to attend one of our prep rallies to

He was an assistant coach at McNeese State and Nicholls State. He was out of coaching nine years. Guillot said one of the pleasures of returning to the Dome is getting to see old coaching friends, such as B.L. Fairchild, the Istrouma football legend whom Guillot served under at Tara. Other favorites he looks for include Steve Mattox of Tara, and Mike Mook and Wayne Messina of Woodlawn.
