Somewhere in the ArkLaTex: Mansfield, Louisiana

Posted: Updated:
MANSFIELD, La. -

Rick Rowe explores Mansfield somewhere in the ArkLaTex.

Randi Walding is not your typical small town girl, she went off to fly helicopters but then came home.

"I missed the country and the Haynesville Shale was the perfect time to come back with all the opportunities here" says Walding.

Randi came back to run the DeSoto Parish Airport and help the parish spend some of its $28 million take from the shale. It's the best of times for Lane Johnson who is head of the DeSoto Parish EMT. In the last year, they've moved from a 1500 sq. ft. double wide to a million dollar plus state of the art facility with the best emergency equipment money can buy and a fleet of brand new ambulances.

Lynn Landis is also about to do some major improvements to the Mansfield library without taxpayers having to pay a dime.
