Disaster can teach citizens to unite in all things

With Louisiana facing arguably the worst flooding the state has ever had to endure, thousands of citizens have banded together to help neighbors, family, friends and in a lot of cases, total strangers.

Some things are stronger than floods

It has been chaotic in Jeff Davis and Acadia parishes over the past few days. The chaos has yet to subside. It is a dark time in the area. So many have been forced from their homes due to floodwaters and that threat continues in Lake Arthur and Mermentau. Some have wondered to what they […]
