On September 22, officers with the Turkey Creek Police Department were conducting traffic control on US 167 when they observed a white van traveling faster than the posted speed limit. Officers made contact with the driver, Rexton Dauzat of Ville Platte. He advised police he did not have a drivers license with him. Officers conducted a road side investigation and learned that the driver gave police a fake name to avoid going to jail for driving under suspension. He was placed under arrest on a charge for resisting an officer by giving false information and cited for speeding and driving under suspension. On September 25, officers initiated a traffic stop of a white Chevrolet truck on Red Roberts road. Turkey Creek police spoke with the driver, Aaron Johnston of Pine Prairie. Officers learned that the truck license plates were switched along with him not having a valid driver’s license. A positive K9 alert revealed that the driver has presumed illegal narcotics. After a search, illegal narcotics was located. Johnson was cited for the traffic infractions and a warrant was placed for his arrest for the narcotics. On September 28, Turkey Creek police was notified by the Evangeline Parish Sheriff’s Department that they had Paige Prudhomme of Pine Prairie in custody and that they had a NCIC warrant for her arrest through the Turkey Creek Police Department for driving under suspension, possession of schedule two Crystal Meth and drug paraphernalia. Turkey Creek Police confirmed the warrant and she was booked into the Evangeline Parish Jail. On October 4, while court proceedings were going on, Kenny Clark of Turkey Creek entered to handle a previous citation when officers observed he had an outstanding warrant through the village of Turkey Creek for carrying a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of synthetic cannabinoid. Clark was placed into custody for the outstanding warrant and transported to the Evangeline Parish Jail for booking.

Evangeline Parish School Board
Wednesday, 6 October 2021
Mr. Wayne Dardeau, President of the Evangeline Parish School Board, announced on Wednesday that the National School Board is recommending the FBI add parents who attend school board meetings to protest mask and/or vaccine mandates to an investigation list. However, Mr. Dardeau, speaking on behalf of the school board, does not accept this recommendation, as he sees it as an infringement of constitutional rights.
Changes were approved for the 2021-22 Pupil Progression Plan:
Beginning in the Spring semester of school year 2021-22, to be eligible for Dual Enrollment, students must meet dual enrollment college entry requirements for their selected school. A student will be ineligible for Dual Enrollment the next semester if he/she finishes with a D, F, or “W” as their final semester grade in at least 2 classes. If a student drops 2 or more attempted courses before the final withdrawal date without a “W,” the student will be ineligible for Dual Enrollment the next semester. Eligibility in both cases shall resume the following semester if the student meets all requirements.
Superintendent Lazard assures everyone that our parish is doing “very well overall” in dropping COVID cases. Restrictions will be eased on a school-by-school basis as numbers continue to drop.
The school board was granted an Emergency Connectivity Fund Grant in the full amount requested— $830,650.
Mr. John Harvard, the Band Teacher at Pine Prairie High School and Bayou Chicot Elementary School, was selected as the recipient of the 2021-22 Outstanding Young Music Educator Award of the LS Music Educators Association.
