History

Dubach also had a semiprofessional baseball team, part of the North Louisiana "Big 8", during the 1940s and 1950s. Despite its small size, the team had no trouble recruiting players.

In the fall of 2005, Dubach voters defeated a bond issue that would have funded renovations to Hico Elementary and Dubach High schools. Despite a well-spoken campaign by high school principal Donna Doss, voters killed the issue by a wide margin. Local media speculated that the economic effects of Hurricane Katrina may have swayed voters to err on the side of caution with regards to new taxation.
