      In 1963 Bossier City Fire Fighters tried to save the lives of two sewage workers. It was a sad day because the workers died along with 2 veteran fire fighters, Larry Baldwin and Royce Glen Vogel. Today a huge maple tree stands as a memorial to those fire fighters and others who have died in the line of duty. The tree sits in front of one of the oldest fire station built in bossier city on Barksdale Blvd. back in the early 1950's. The station has been abandoned for quite some time now but ther...

      A relatively mild summer with well timed rainfalls has been a welcome break from the usual heat waves of July and August -- but for those who make money off hot weather, the summer trend can make them sweat.

      The Military's search for one little boy ends in Shreveport.  Serious men with a serious mission, and a seriously great sense of humor. Airmen and soldiers serving in Afghanistan found laughter in difficult times, all courtesy of 4 little words in a letter from a school child – “Hope you make it. – Gavin” The troops wanted to meet the young man who inspired them so much.  We bring you that special meeting.

      Old music buffs know of the late Tillman Franks from "The Hayride" on radio here in Shreveport. But you're about to meet his brother, Billy, who also made a name for himself here -- partly as a music promoter -- after duty in World War II.

      A. J. Johnson faced deadly confrontation in The Philippines

      A. J. Johnson was fired up. A sailor wounded at sea was back home telling him and three of his buddies how the Japanese sank his ship. So Johnson and his buds all decided to join the Navy, too. But Johnson was the only one to pass the physical. He to war alone. He would go on to pass another test -- a test of courage and fighting skill.
