Hearts of Hope, LPSO hosting free self-defense class
A Hub City center for the sexually abused is teaming up with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office to offer a free self-defense class Thursday evening at the Clifton Chenier Center.
According to Hearts of Hope, a nonprofit sexual abuse support group based in Lafayette, the class is being offered in response to “the current heightened awareness for safety in our community,” as the disappearance of Lafayette’s Mickey Shunick continues to capture headlines — and hearts — nationwide.
The class will be taught by Sheriff’s Office Capt. Craig Stansbury. It starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Clifton Chenier Center, located at 220 Willow St.
For more information on the event, call Hearts of Hope’s Joanna at 269-1557.
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to offer shares of its stock to the public for the first time.

Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
