1950 Newspaper Article Lookup Needed !
Posted by: Timmie McEachern (ID *****7103) Date: August 08, 2002 at 23:26:46

I realize that this is a long shot, but was hoping some kind soul may be able to help. John Powell was working on a construction crew that built the Calcasieu River Bridge. Sometime during 1950,( not sure what month ), he lost his footing and fell through to the ground breaking his back, and becoming crippled for life....Was hoping to get a copy of the newspaper article about that accident... I live in Webster Parish, and am unable to travel to your parish and search the newspapers. If anyone can give me any leads on how to access this article, I would be deeply greatful.... Mr. Powell was my Boss for many years and I'm trying to create a web-page for his family.......Thanks for any help on this project...Timmie
