Blue star’s history comes to light

The blue star in Eunice lights up the sky once again.
It’s nearly a year ago when the 15-foot-wide angle-iron star was placed on the 100-foot tall rice dryer building behind G&H Outdoor in Eunice.
The star, which was thought to be missing 30 or 40 years ago from a rice dryer, was found.
The star shines from the building between East Street and La. 13.
The rice dryer is owned by the Hensgens families (Wayne, Michael, Mark and Jennifer) of Crowley.
The Hensgens never found out the history or maker of the star when it went up last year.

But the research has become so time-consuming, and archiving needs so profound, that Sen. Mike Walsworth said the task force may ask for an extension beyond its March 2018 expiration.
“We’d like to be ready to ask for legislation by then,” said Walsworth, chairman of the Historical Archives Task Force, “but there’s still a lot of work to do.”
