Welcome House seeks sponsors,donors to meet maintenance needs

The Welcome House, located on La. 13 north of Crowley, depends on the generosity of the community for its existence.
The faith-based shelter for the less fortunate does not receive state or federal funding, yet people from across the state — indeed, across the country — have sought refuge there and continue to do so.
The facility received a much-needed overhaul a few years ago courtesy of the Rotary Club of Crowley and it’s Community Outreach Corp. However, the cost of maintaining the facility is taking its toll.

Eunice High class receives energy, life lessons

A Eunice High School woodworking class received lessons in saving energy and about life Friday morning.
Their classroom is a part of a pilot program to demonstrate how the St. Landry Parish School Board can save on energy costs.
Star Service Inc. has been talking to School Board members for about a year on energy-related ideas. Company representatives Greg Ortego, an engineer, and Jimmy Kaiser, executive vice president, were given approval for an air-conditioning project at Eunice, Northwest and Beau Chene high schools.

Paving coming to a road near you

Nearly every St. Landry Parish Council meeting has citizens standing up to ask when will the road they live on get paved under the Smooth Ride Home program.
After a resident on Prayer House Road near Washington asked about the completion of a paving project on her road, Bill Fontenot, parish president, said he felt like he is wearing a statement out.
“I’m a professional engineer that’s has been in this job five years. When I came here there was no highway program. There was no hope for Prayer House every being paved,” he said at the Wednesday Parish Council meeting.
