From The Eunice News files

From The Eunice News files of December 1976.
Dr. R. E. Landreneau sent a letter published in The Eunice News protesting the lack of rice in school lunch menus. “Rice prices have a hit a new low while the cost of production and equipment have hit new highs in the past two years,” he wrote. He added that rice is served as “some gooey, gluey mess” at the state’s unversities. “... not even a dedicated Louisiana rice booster could possible eat” the rice served at the universities, he stated.

Sailing the world with strangers

The lucky accident of where I lived gave me at an early age the idea that well past the front door of my home there was a much larger world populated with people and ways and ideas not exactly like the ones I was commonly associated with.
My home was on the lakefront midway between the port of Lake Charles and “town.” Sailors from merchant ships visiting the port regularly walked past our house, and, more important, my grandmother’s home next door.
