Rosabelle, Believe

Erik Weisz was born on March 24, 1874 in Budapest.  When Erik was four years old, his family emigrated to the United States.  The family settled in Appleton, Wisconsin and changed their last name to the German spelling Weiss.  Erik adopted the German spelling Ehrich.  To lessen confusion, this article will refer to him by his birth name, Erik.
 
Erik’s family moved often to find work.  His father, Mayer Samuel Weisz, was a Rabbi who was often in search of employment.  In 1882, they moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Five years later, they moved into a boarding house in New York City.  To help earn money for the struggling family, young Erik held several jobs.  At nine years old, Erik made his public debut as a trapeze artist under the name “Ehrich, the Prince of the Air”.  Erik often performed in small tent acts, dime museums and circus sideshows, usually with another performer to double the draw and to share expenses.  For the rest of his life, Erik’s world revolved around entertaining and amazing crowds of people.
 
In 1894, while performing with his brother, Theodore, Erik met another sideshow performer named Wilhelmina Beatrice “Bess” Rahner.  Within a short time, Erik and Bess married.  They performed together for the remainder of Erik’s career.
 
On October 21, 1936, Erik lectured before the male student body of McGill University in Montreal.  Topics of his lecture included his ability to withstand immense pain without so much as a wince.  Following his lecture, he answered questions from the students.  One student asked if it was possible to painlessly pass needles through his cheek.  Rather than verbalizing an answer, he took out a hat pin and ran it through his cheek.  He showed no sign of pain.  At the end of his lecture, Erik invited them back to his dressing room for further discussion if they were interested.  To his surprise, many of the students took advantage of the invitation, including Jocelyn Gordon Whitehead.
 
During the discussion in Erik’s dressing room, Whitehead remarked, “You would hardly feel a blow in the stomach, would you?” “Certainly no,” Erik replied.  Erik was unprepared for what came next.  Before he could tighten the muscles in his stomach to lessen the blow, Whitehead gave Erik “two short-armed punches to the pit of his stomach.”  Erik shuddered because, as he told the boys, he was not prepared for the punches.
 
While giving his final performance in Montreal on the following night, the crowd noticed that Erik doubled over in pain several times.  Ever the showman, Erik fought through the pain and finished his performance before a cheering crowd.   Erik complained of severe stomach pains, something that had never bothered him before.  
 
A few days later, while performing alongside Bess in Detroit, Michigan, Erik collapsed.  After he regained consciousness, to the surprise of everyone present, Erik continued with his act.  After the show, Erik checked into a local hospital.  On the following day, doctors operated on Erik for appendicitis.  Following surgery, Erik showed symptoms of swelling of the tissue that lines the abdomen called peritonitis.  Erik’s peritonitis was linked to his burst appendix.  Erik underwent a second surgery to save his life from the effects of peritonitis.  Despite their best efforts, they were unable to save Erik.  He lived long enough to say his final goodbyes to his family and friends who surrounded his bedside.  
 
Bess was saddened by her husband’s passing but she held out hope that she would soon be in contact with Erik.  “Long before he died,” Bess explained, “we agreed that whoever should go first would try to return to the other.  We agreed upon a message, phased in code.  It was known only to the two of us.  The compact was to last 10 years and no longer.  After that period, the one of us still alive was to abandon hope either in the possibility of the survival of the dead, or their ability to communicate with the living.”  Bess said, “In his last hours, he said to me: ‘Beatrice, I’ll come to you somehow, even though I have to go through hell.”
 
On the first anniversary of Erik’s death at 8:30 p.m., the exact time of Erik’s death, Bess held a séance in an attempt to contact her beloved Erik.  She anxiously awaited a communication from Erik which said “Rosabelle, Believe”, the code words she and Erik had decided upon.  The words did not come.  She repeated the séance on the second anniversary of Erik’s death, then the third and fourth.  News of the séances spread throughout the world and other people began holding séances to try to contact Erik.  In 1936, on the tenth anniversary of Erik’s death, Bess prepared for the final séance to contact Erik, as per their agreement.  At 8:30 p.m., Bess and other believers in psychic phenomena, one of which was a Los Angeles superior court judge, gathered on the roof of a Hollywood hotel to try to make contact with Erik one final time.  They were not the only ones trying to contact Erik.  People held simultaneous séances in sixteen cities in the United States, England, Australia and Canada, but no lights flickered, no objects moved without explanation, and no one heard “Rosabelle, Believe.”  All was quiet.  Bess never received the message from Erik that she so longed to hear.  On February 11, 1943, seventeen years after Erik’s death, Bess died from a heart attack.  She never remarried.
 
People still hold séances each year on the anniversary of Erik’s death to try to make contact with him, but all attempts have failed.  Erik was an illusionist, stunt performer, and is most remembered as an escape artist.  He died on Halloween night in 1926.  On this Halloween night, if your lights flicker or you hear a strange sound, it may just be Erik trying to make contact with the living world.  You may not recognize the name Erik Weisz, but you certainly know him by his stage name…Harry Houdini.  Happy Halloween!

Gov. Edwards Lifts Louisiana’s Mask Mandate Statewide, Except for K-12 Schools

October 26, 2021

Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced he will lift Louisiana’s statewide mask mandate in all settings except for K-12 schools, after sustained improvement across the state in terms of new cases, test positivity and hospitalizations. The Governor’s updated order allows school districts to opt out of the mask mandate as long as they continue to follow the existing quarantine guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to better separate exposed students and faculty members from others and avoid outbreaks on campus.

CDC guidance still says everyone 2 years of age or older who is not fully vaccinated should wear a mask in indoor public places. And if you are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection from the Delta variant, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area with high transmission. People who have a health condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may not be fully protected even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask, until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider. At this time, in light of the Delta variant, CDC recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.

“Today, I am cautiously optimistic and very relieved that the worst of this fourth surge of COVID is clearly behind us, which is a direct result of the people of Louisiana who stepped up to the plate when we needed them to and put their masks back on, got vaccinated, and took extra precautions to stay safe. That’s why we are able to lift the statewide mask mandate,” said Gov. Edwards. “While the K-12 mask mandate will be in place, school districts can opt out if they follow the existing, evidence-based CDC quarantine guidance. This new order does offer a way for local leaders to end the school mask mandate, if they so choose. Let me be clear – Louisiana has been a leader in bringing students safely back into the classroom. And they have done that by following public health guidance including on masking and quarantine. Public health experts and I encourage schools to stay that course. But because case numbers are going down and have reached a new baseline I do believe it’s an appropriate time to give schools more autonomy. It’s not lost on me that while Louisiana has seen 18 children die of COVID, half of those deaths came in the last three months, as the much more contagious Delta variant surged throughout our state.”

Masks will still be mandated by federal regulation, including on mass transit and in health care facilities. They will not be mandated in most places, including government buildings, college and university campuses and businesses. School districts may opt out of the mask mandate if they choose to, but only if they continue to adhere to CDC quarantine guidance.

“We are encouraged about our current COVID trends, but remain mindful of our profound loss as a result of the last surge and cognizant that we will remain vulnerable to an equally damaging surge unless more of our friends, family and neighbors choose to get vaccinated,” said State Health Officer Dr. Joseph Kanter.

Local governments and private businesses may choose to continue to require and enforce mask requirements under the Governor’s order, which goes into effect on Wednesday, October 27.

SCHOOL AND GENERAL QUARANTINE GUIDANCE

Under the CDC and LDH guidance that schools without mask mandates must follow, asymptomatic individuals who may have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone infected with COVID-19 for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) to someone infected with COVID-19 should quarantine.

Under the following criteria quarantine is not necessary:

  • Individuals who are fully vaccinated at the time of exposure and remain asymptomatic
  • Individuals who previously tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days and remain asymptomatic
  • If both the positive case and the contact were masked AND were ≥ 3 feet of each other and remain asymptomatic (only applies to students in structured K-12 settings)

Duration: The standard length is 14 days; however, schools can choose to use shortened quarantine options.

Options to shorten quarantine include:

  • If no symptoms develop during quarantine AND they have a negative antigen or PCR/molecular test collected on day 5, 6, or 7 after last exposure: they may quarantine for 7 days from last contact with a COVID-19 case OR
  • If no symptoms develop during quarantine and no testing is done: they may quarantine for 10 days from last contact with a COVID-19 case

At this time, the CDC advises that fully vaccinated individuals who are not experiencing COVID symptoms do not need to quarantine following an exposure to COVID-19, and LDH is not yet altering this guidance.

Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, even those who are fully vaccinated or without a known exposure, should get tested.

Anyone who tests positive should immediately isolate. Isolation (for those who test positive for COVID-19) typically consists of:

  • If symptomatic, at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared, symptoms are improving, and at least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication
  • If asymptomatic but with a positive test, 10 days from the time the test sample was collected

Call 211 to find a COVID-19 testing site near you.

HOW TO GET A COVID VACCINE IN LOUISIANA

Everyone aged 12 and older is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Louisiana. The FDA has only authorized one of the three COVID-19 vaccines – from Pfizer – for children ages 12 to 17. Parents should confirm with the vaccine provider that their child is under 18 to ensure Pfizer vaccine is available before making an appointment.

  • COVID-19 vaccines are widely available at more than 1,000 locations in all of Louisiana’s 64 parishes, including at pharmacies, hospitals, health care clinics, and doctor’s offices.
  • For a list of locations, visit LDH’s vaccine directory or visit vaccines.gov, which is maintained by the federal government. 
  • To get a list of vaccine locations near you text your ZIP code to GETVAX (438829) in English, or VACUNA (822862) in Spanish.
  • If you have questions, would like to speak with a medical professional, or need help scheduling an appointment, call 211 or Louisiana’s vaccine hotline at 1-855-453-0774.

Breaking News: School Board votes to do away with mandatory quarantine for “close contact” students and employees

MANY, La – The Sabine School Board unanimously voted to implement the Quarantine Option for students and employees who are considered close contacts (met guideline for close contact of a student or employee who has tested positive for Covid-19) in the Covid-19 Guidance, at the October 18th board meeting.

The new guidelines came directly from the Louisiana Department of Education, State Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley, September 29, 2021, and are posted on the School Board website. Presently, if a student is considered to be a close contact, the parents will have the option to quarantine or opt out of the quarantine as long as the student is symptom free. Employees will have the same option. Those who opt out will report to the nurse every morning, first thing, to be checked for symptoms, including temperature. As long as no symptoms are present, students and employees will be allowed to stay at school.

“The School Board is happy to have the opportunity to offer an option that allows parents to keep students in school and employees working,” commented Mr. Terrell Snelling, Board President. 

“We can no longer ignore the unintended academic consequences of our students unnecessarily missing school,” said Dr. Cade Brumley, State Superintendent of Education. “This new, common-sense option empowers parents and local communities with the authority to make health-related decisions for their students.”

Close contacts in a school setting
Quarantines for close contacts at school or on the bus are no longer mandatory. Following contact tracing, as previously completed, the parent/guardian will be notified that their child was identified as a close contact in a school setting. The parent/guardian will be given the option to have their child quarantine according to our current guidelines or return to school. Parents/guardians will be asked to monitor the child for symptoms, and school personnel will check the temperature of such students upon their arrival at school each day during that period of time during which the students would have been subject to quarantine. If a parent decides that they prefer for their child to quarantine, the student will follow existing Louisiana Department of Health guidelines. This change also applies to employees. Both employees and parents/guardians of students will be able to opt out of the quarantine period when notified by executing the necessary documents.

Close contacts in a home setting
Quarantine guidelines for a student/employee being a close contact to a parent, spouse, or sibling in a
household or social gathering will continue to follow existing Louisiana Department of Health guidelines. The new quarantine guideline changes only apply to close contacts in a school setting.

Close contacts during contact sports
The guidelines have changed for students who are identified as close contacts during the course of any
contact sport. Students athletes shall be quarantined in accordance with the same guidelines as govern all
other students.

Close contacts during extracurricular activities
These newly adopted guidelines apply to students who are identified as close contacts during extracurricular activities and non-contact sports. If the student is considered a close contact, the parent/guardian will be notified and given the choice to quarantine their child.

Symptomatic/positive cases
The parent choice option does not alter the process of a positive COVID-19 case. If a student/employee
develops symptoms or tests positive, they must isolate until they recover and are no longer infectious.

Implementation of mitigation responses during spike/breakout                                                    Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, the Superintendent is authorized to reinstate or to implement quarantine, masking, and other mitigation efforts in the event of a rise in cases in a particular
school, grade, or classroom.

The Quarantine Choice Plan directly from the School Board website can be seen below.

The Many High School football team manhandled the Menard Eagles easily Friday night in Alexandria, running over the Eagles 50-13.

The Tigers’ running back tandem of London and Trent Williams combined for an amazing 452 rushing yards and five touchdowns. London Williams ran for 241 yards on just 14 carries, scoring on four. Trent Williams had 211 yards on 22 totes, including Many’s first TD.

Many struck frequently, and from far away. The Tigers had touchdowns of 76, 60, 62, 88 and 94 yards in their seventh straight win.

With the victory the Tigers are now 7-1 and 4-0 in district while the Eagles fell to 1-7 and 1-3 in district. Due to Menard’s lower power rating, although Many won, the Tigers slipped out of the No. 1 LHSAA power points position, with Amite moving on top statewide. MHS will no doubt retain the No. 1 spot in the Louisiana Sportswriters Association top 10 poll, however.

The Tigers set the tone on their very first possession, moving 52 yards in eight plays, capped by a Trent Williams 4-yard touchdown run to go on top to stay, 6-0.

Many got its first long score defensively. Jamarlyn Garner returned an interception 76 yards for a TD to push the Tigers up 12-0 with 2:48 remaining in the first quarter.

Midway through the second quarter, London Williams scored from 60 yards out, running through multiple Eagle defenders. He also accounted for the two-point conversion to bring the score to 20-0 with 7:30 left in the half. The Tigers defense didn’t allow the Eagles to score on their next three possessions and headed into halftime up 20-0.

The Tiger defense dominated the first half, putting multiple bruising hits on the Menard running backs and quarterback. The defense came to play, led by Tackett Curtis, Keaton Montgomery, Marquis Maxie, and Garet Culverson, and Tylen Singleton.

Singleton snagged an interception returned 16 yards down to the 10 yard line to jumpstart the Tigers midway through the third period. Trent Williams went 6 yards for the touchdown. London Williams converted the two-point conversion to move Many ahead 28-0 with 3:17 left in the third.

Singleton struck again on Menard’s next possession, returning his second interception 62 yards for a touchdown. Trent Williams added the conversion, making the score 36-0.

The Tigers started the fourth quarter with a Trent Williams 88-yard touchdown run up the middle, and after Deacon Lafollette added the extra point kick Many had a commanding 43-0 lead with 11:05 to go.

Menard finally struck with a 59-yard touchdown run on the first play after the kickoff. With 3:41 remaining, Trent Williams went almost the entire length of the field this time on a 94-yard sprint, and Lafollette again added the kick to bring the score to 50-7.  The Eagles got a last-minute TD for consolation.

The entire offensive line opened some huge holes for the Williams boys to both have monstrous nights. The Tigers totaled 501 yards of offense, 487 of that on the ground. Meanwhile, Menard went for 182 yards, including 135 rushing.

Scoring Summary:

1st quarter:

8:12 M – Trent Williams 4 run, kick no good, Many 6-0
