On the Scene


Dr. David Abdehou invited friends and special guests to the grand opening of the Clarion Hotel Event Center and Three Dons Lounge inside the former LeBossier Hotel at 4000 Industrial Drive in Bossier City. LeBossier was widely known for headline entertainers in the early ’80s, long before the casinos arrived with their star-filled venues. Expect new headliners at the facility, and enjoy drinks and conversations in Three Dons Lounge. – Staff

Craig Morgan, a veteran himself, recognized members of the military at his May 26 concert at DiamondJacks. He said he is working on a new album.

Invitations have power, said Warren Morris, who thought basketball was his first love until he was asked to join in on a baseball game when he didn’t even have a glove. The LSU 1996 College World Series hero, known for his home run in the bottom of the ninth/second out, spoke to the LSU Alumni Association at East Ridge June 18. Morris has a bronze medal from the Olympics and played in the pros. Morris has twin ninth-grade 12 daughters and a daughter in fourth grade. They look at him as a chauffeur, not a star. – Mary Ann Van Osdell
