ONE LANE CLOSED – For almost two years a stretch of LA 352/Henderson Levee Road just south of the Bayou Amy bridge has been restricted to one lane. Butte La Rose residents, commercial/recreational fishermen and tourists wait patiently at the signal light installed in July 2017 to access three boat landings and one dance hall along the levee and homes/camps in Butte La Rose. Elected officials and governmental agencies are trying to decide who is responsible for repairing several dirt slides along this section of state owned highway.(Sally Angelle)

PLANNING ACCESSIBILITY– The volunteer South Main Park Planning Committee has worked for more than two years to ensure that Breaux Bridge’s South Main Park will be welcoming to special needs residents as well as the able-bodied. Committee members met at the Breaux Bridge library on Monday, June 18 to present an update. Present were (front row, from left) Barbara Gary, Heath Patin, Mauricia Ledet Walters and Reese Walters; and (back row) Randy Patin, Rachel Patin, Colt Patin, Andrea Matthews, Brenda Hobbs, Cindy Roberthon Guidry and Connie Guidry.

Mitchell is the first elected female mayor in the city’s 200 year history. A crowd of more than 200 braved the 95 degree heat to witness the ceremony on the Courthouse lawn on Saturday, June 29.(Karl Jeter)
