Local elected officials are working to honor one of the parish's most recent heroes by naming an interchange in his memory.
District 10 Rep. Gene Reynolds has introduced a bill that will name the interchange after fallen soldier Sgt. Joshua Tomlinson, and Sen. Robert Adley aims to see it through his side of the legislature.
"There is a lot of support for naming Dubberly/Minden exit on I-20 and Hwy. 531 after Josh Tomlinson," Reynolds said. "The bill has passed through committee and Senator Adley is going to pick it up and support it once it is in the senate."
