Community Action Agency's Director Laurance Guidry said Monday he's familiar with the property but was unaware it had become overgrown and was the subject of neighborhood complaints.

"We have been paying a man with a bushhog to cut it for us, but apparently he hasn't cut it or sent us a bill," Guidry said.

Laurance Guidry, executive director of the Caddo Parish agency that oversees local Head Start programs, understands the call for some changes, including increasing educational requirements for Head Start teachers.

That's nothing new, he said, because in 1998 the federal government also tightened those requirements, requiring at least half of Head Start teachers to have two-year college degrees and all teachers to have those or program-specific certification by this year.
Guidry said that's a fraction of the number that could probably qualify for the program, based on the number of children living below the poverty level.
"It would take another several billion dollars nationwide to fund it at around 100 percent," Guidry said.
All of Caddo's Head Start teachers have an associate's degree or the required certification, Guidry said.

"I know of nobody who disliked him," Laurance Guidry, president and CEO of Caddo Community Action Agency, said Tuesday.

"Instead of charging to speak, he'd write you a check," Guidry recalled.
Cochran always was proud of his roots and always thought fondly of Shreveport and his Allendale home, Guidry said.
Following a stop in the city in 2003, Cochran visited his home in the 1900 block of Milam Street and asked Guidry to find out who owns it.
It was that kind of action that epitomized Cochran, Guidry said.
Guidry spoke with Cochran's father Tuesday.
