In awe of a Louisiana legend

in
Sharp, Lacey.jpg

I get to meet quite a few public figures in my profession, but meeting a living legend had never happened — until last Wednesday.
I received a call the day before the Squire Creek Peach Festival Luncheon scheduled for June 19 that none other than Louisiana’s most controversial governor, next to Huey P. Long, was headlining the event. With the news that Edwin Edwards was not only in the area, but accessible as well, I eagerly volunteered to make the short trip to Choudrant.

For more than five years area youngsters have came together to compete in the Diaper Derby as part of the Louisiana Peach Festival.
Faye Barnes, co-owner of Barnes Portraiture, said this year’s numbers were a bit down.
“We had about 30 less participants than we had in previous years,” she said. “Which is surprising since I always hear how this is peoples favorite part of the Peach Festival.”
Participant numbers may have been down, but as for the crowd Trinity United Methodist Church was still a packed house.

But many people don’t realize how widespread the problem is and how many people are working to try and help ease the problem.

Water help from ‘Down Under’

Sharing knowledge and ideas is often beneficial, especially if the transfer comes from across the world.
That’s what Downsville Mayor Reggie Skains hopes.
Skains, who works with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, organized a Water Management Roundtable Discussion at Louisiana Tech University last week with panels consisting of scholars from Australia and four Louisiana water experts.
“The Australians are on a 45-day world tour where they’re sharing and gathering information along with American counterparts,” said discussion organizer Reggie Skains with the National Association of Resource Conservation and Development. “They do a great job of water management in Australia, and with the problems we have with the Sparta Aquifer being slowly depleted, I think there’s a lot we can learn from.”
