In today's issue of The Independent Weekly, Peep Goat reports that local attorneys Warren Perrin and David Calogero both have an
interest in replacing federal Judge Tucker Melancon, who recently
assumed senior status.
Peep, however, doesn't put much into their chances, reiterating his — or her (you see Peep's identity is a secret known only to Independent management) — position that Tucker's replacement is more likely to be either an African-American or a female. "A white male
has as much of a chance on this one as a female does of being invited
to be a member of the Augusta National Country Club," Peep says.
Kay Karre Gautreaux continues to be the most prominent female name
mentioned, according to Peep's sources, who indicate that Opelousas District Judge Alonzo Harris is reportedly in
the running as well.
There will soon be a whole lot of shakin’ going on at Benny’s Sportshack Supplement Depot, a new concept by Opelousas native Benny Nele. Located at 2002 Johnston St., the supplement shop, smoothie bar and café, featuring hot off the press paninis and wraps, plans to open in late May.
Philip deMahy Sr., a once respected New Iberia ad exec, was sentenced May 2 to spend the next two years (he faced up to 100 years) in a state penitentiary after state and federal investigators found dozens of images depicting children engaged in lewd sexual acts on his personal computer.
