Did you know? Human trafficking is the modern slavery

There are different types of trafficking.
Sex trafficking is also driven by buyer demand. Whether a pimp is involved or not, anyone under the age of 18 is deemed a victim of sex trafficking when they engage in commercial sex with an adult. The buyer is viewed as the perpetrator any time the victim is a minor.
Sex trafficking can be pimp-controlled or gang-controlled.
Pimp-controlled. Victims are controlled by individual pimps who often force victims to use drugs.

Germanfest scheduled at Oct. 6-7

The Roberts Cove German Heritage Museum is preparing once again for this year’s Germanfest.
The 24th annual Germanfest will be held Oct. 6-7 at the festival grounds in Roberts Cove.
This year the museum will be taking a look at the first German settlement in northern prairies of Acadia Parish.
The settlement of Fabacher was founded by Joseph Fabacher and Zeno Huber in 1870. The successes of the German immigrants in this settlement influenced the first German settlers in Roberts Cove to choose that location.
