There is quite a bit of irony in the ruling by an interim 27th Judicial District judge throwing out charges against an accused kidnapper because, the judge ruled, the DA’s Office took too long to make its case. The judge is Marion Davies, who sits in the Division B seat held by Ellis Daigle of Eunice until Daigle retired in February.

Fire threatens, doesn't reach, oil complex

Fire roars through a house Monday afternoon, threatening an oil company downwind to the right in this image. A mobile home park is to the left.

Firefighters fought Monday afternoon to keep a raging house fire on East Ardoin from jumping next door to the Guillory Oil complex and its battery of gasoline storage tanks.
The fire broke out about 2 p.m. at 163 East Ardoin.
Keeping it under control was a double-tough assignment --it quickly was free burning, and a southerly wind was feeding it air and pushing the fingers of flame toward the downwind Guillory property.
Residents of a mobile home park on the opposite side of the fire-ravaged building were out of their homes, waiting for the coast to be called clear.

Eunice girl will swim with dolphins, as Dreams Come True

India Anderson, 14, holds the paperwork for a cruise trip this week, given her by Dreams Come True Louisiana representative Tammy Parrott, right, of Mamou. India, her mother Michelle Guillory, left; sister, Shiya Ceasar, 7, pictured; and brother Jai, 11, and sister Mikel Guillory, 19, (neither pictured) will cruise to Cozumel, where India plans to swim with dolphins. Dreams Come True helps fulfill dreams of young people with life-threatening diseases.

By this time next week, India Anderson will have lived her dream -- swimming with dolphins in the open sea, thanks to a Louisiana non-profit that makes it possible for some youngsters with life-threatening diseases to realize their dream.
India, 14, suffers from Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome, a disorder characterized by the formation of tumors and fluid-filled sacs (cysts) in many different parts of the body.
The tumors may or may not be malignant, and they appear with warning.
