Bossier City kicked off its centennial birthday over the weekend. It's a year long celebration that will wrap up with a time capsule being buried in April 2008.
Mayor Lo Walker says Bossier Parish is the fastest-growing parish in the state. According to the Bossier Chamber of Commercewebsite "The Bossier-Shreveport community serves as the trade and cultural center of the 200-mile radius extending into Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas (the “Ark-La-Tex”)."
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
