The Prairie Acadian Cultural Center is in its 25th year and from its beginning it has been a place where Cajun-Creole French found a shelter.
On Saturday evenings, the Liberty Theater showcased Cajun and Creole music.
Its emcee for many of those 25 years, Dr. Barry Ancelet, would speak Cajun French in show that was broadcast live over the radio.

Economic Development Committee ordinance in motion Eunice aldermen vote to amend noise ordinance

An ordinance to create an eight-member Eunice economic development committee was introduced at Tuesday’s meeting of the Board of Aldermen.
Eunice Mayor Scott Fontenot said the ordinance replaces one that had been in place since 1961 that formed a 12-member industrial development board.
“I’m ready to get this thing rolling,” Fontenot said after Tuesday’s meeting. “I spent a lot of time working that ordinance up and I believe it is something simple, yet something that is going to be very resourceful to get some things going.”

Frequency of local tax votes questioned

Some lawmakers are concerned that local governments and political subdivisions are abusing the “in cases of emergency” exception in the Louisiana Constitution for submitting tax propositions more than once within a six-month period.
Leading that war cry is House Natural Resources Chairman Stuart Bishop, R-Lafayette, who wants the Legislature do something about the issue.
The worst kind of abuser, said Bishop, are local government entities that fail to gain voter approval for a tax and immediately want another shot on the same exact proposition.
