Lafayette Art Association & Gallery held a reception to honor the winners of its 25th Annual “Eye of the Beholder” competition of two- and three-dimensional artwork. The gallery was packed with patrons perusing the prize-winning works of local artists. Acadiana artist Vergie Banks had the tough task of judging the wondrous works.
Ladies indulged in petit fours and raised their glasses overflowing with mimosas to the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra. Sharon Moss hosted the tea to raise support for ASO’s upcoming events.

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.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. 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.
