Oct. 15th: KSLA News 12 Friendship House Editorial

There was a special dedication ceremony in Shreveport this past week.

A brand new Friendship House is complete and ready to help turn a distressed neighborhood around. It's located in the Queensborough neighborhood. It's much like a community center reaching at-risk children and families with after school programs and community service projects. It's a safe haven in often dangerous communities.

Community Renewal International created the Friendship House idea. There are now ten in our area.

Funding for the Friendship House was made possible through the KSLA News 12 House for Hope. That's a fundraiser we do every year with the Homebuilders Association of Northwest Louisiana.

The homebuilders build the house and we help to give it away. Thousands of you have purchased tickets over the past four years for a chance to win the House for Hope.

I just wanted you to see what your money is being used for. A new Friendship House.

I'm James Smith.

    State Police Supt. Col. Mike Edmonson needs to address this inexcusable behavior directly and restore the public's confidence. He should be fully transparent in his investigation into the matter and should invite an outside entity to look into the matter.
