The Acadiana Top 50 Business Luncheon Thursday, August 26, 2010 Cajundome Convention Center 11:45 a.m.
Keynote Speaker Charlie Cook, Political Analyst and Publisher of The Cook Report
Once again Acadiana Business brings a meaningful new event for the area’s business elite: a luncheon honoring Acadiana’s Top 50 private and publicly-held companies.
The list and accompanying analysis will be published in a special cover feature on Wednesday, July 28, 2010. Top management from each of the Top 50 private businesses and the locally-based, publicly-held companies will be invited as guests to a luncheon held in their honor. Tickets will be available for sale to others who want to attend in honor of their colleagues in business.
Keynote speaker will be Charlie Cook, respected political analyst, publisher of The Cook Report and native son of Louisiana (from Shreveport and a former aide to Sen. J. Bennett Johnston). Cook’s wit and wisdom will be well-timed to offer insight into the fall mid-term elections.
Tickets: $50 per person or $450 for a table of 8. To order tickets contact Robin Hebert:

David Calhoun and Elizabeth “EB” Brooks are the first two employees of Lafayette Central Park Inc., the nonprofit charged with turning Lafayette Consolidated Government’s 100-acre Johnston Street Horse Farm property into a passive public park. Calhoun was named executive director, and Brooks is director of planning and design.
Is it a crime for citizens to photograph, video, or take notes of a police officer in the line of duty, or a right protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution? Locally, such activity, as witnessed recently, will at the very least result in a night spent behind bars.
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.
