Many’s Brian Louden closes in on becoming newest Mythbuster

By Daniel Jones 

When Mythbusters premiered over a decade ago, its brand of science and engineering mixed with entertaining urban legends inspired multitudes to think logically. Now, Brian Louden wants to do exactly that for an entirely new generation, and gets his chance during the finals of “Mythbusters: The Search” on the Science Channel this weekend.

For Louden, the show has fed his addiction to knowledge and learning. After high school he quickly worked his way up to paramedic before attending college to earn a biology degree. From “body farm” to oilfield, jobs were varied and always interesting.

When the oilfield took a downturn, Louden found himself in Louisiana, but loved the freedom he encountered, especially after simplifying his life by moving into a travel trailer.

Motorcycle enthusiasts brighten Valentines Day for seniors

Love was in the air this Valentine’s Day, as members of the Gray Ghost Motorcycle Club of Sabine Parish, Patriot Guard Riders, A.B.A.T.E of Louisiana, and the Soldiers of the Cross M/M spent time with the residents of the Sabine Retirement and Rehabilitation Center. They spread the love with gifts that included fleece throw blankets, socks, and cards for each resident. To top it off they even provided the grand prize for the daily bingo. The Patriot Guard Riders also honored our veterans by presenting each of them with a much-deserved salute and American flag lapel pin, as a token of appreciation. All of this may seem like a small gesture, but to our elderly it meant everything. It’s like Mother Theresa once said, “We can do no great things, only small things with great love.”
