Also celebrating recently was Computers for Business Management (CBM)/AudioScribe. The company held a ribbon cutting at its office in Breaux Bridge and dedicated its building as the Roy & Hazel Theriot Technology Center. "Our ribbon cutting is our way to let those in Acadiana know just how local 'worldwide' can be," says CEO/CTO Chad Theriot. Quite a crowd, including Carmen Blanco and Patricia Parks from Cox and the Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce's Rob Guidry turned out in support of CBM. But the special guest of the day was Ms. Lafayette Parish Liz Landry, complete in her sash and sparkling crown. You go girl! Congratulations, Chad!
In case y'all weren't brave enough to venture out into the heat and dust of the Original Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Festival during Labor Day weekend, I hope you at least listened indoors on KRVS like Party Girl did. Also air-conditioned was a recent booksigning at Paragon Casino the day of its own Creole Zydeco Festival in the Mari Center. Cajun attorney Warren Perrin and Anna Keller, a member of the Louisiana Press Woman's Association, discussed their books and signed copies. Perrin wrote Acadian Redemption, and Keller wrote Belle Terre Acadie, a work of fiction about the Acadian families who settled here. You can find Keller's book at xlibris.com and Perrin's at amazon.com and local bookstores.
