Amy Wellborn has been known among friends and family for her cooking for years, but she never planned to make a living at it.

That all changed on July 16, 2019. That’s the day Wellborn, 37, went to her doctor’s office seeking medication for depression.

“My doctor said, ‘Depression is not your issue. You need to stop doing things that make you unhappy. You need to cook for others,’ ” Wellborn recalls.

She left her doctor’s office feeling overwhelmed and defeated. She called her husband from her car in the parking lot. Crying hysterically, she asked for his […]

Signs went up this week on St. De Porres Street in Broussard in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

City leaders say it’s only fitting that a street named for the Peruvian saint of black people, race relations and social justice would be chosen to honor the African-American civil rights leader.

“Both men were named Martin,” said the Rev. Thomas James, pastor of St. Joseph Catholic Church on St. De Porres Street. “Both of them were men of slaves, but they didn’t give up. Both of them showed courage.”

James encouraged Broussard Councilman Michael Rabon to propose […]

The Lafayette Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Division has been awarded a grant to install specialized smoke alarms and alert equipment in the homes of individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing in Lafayette Parish. These devices utilize light, movement, and low-frequency sound to alert the resident of danger as opposed to a traditional alarm, which only uses high-pitched sound.
