Sunday, May 7th, the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council is holding its twentieth annual Blend of the Bayou fundraiser. This event will be held at the home of Dr. Walter and Sue Sartor at 2110 Island Drive from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The floods that inundated Louisiana in August also damaged rice harvested as seed for this year's planting. 

Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain says he's temporarily relaxed certification requirements to ensure farmers can buy enough for a chance at a good crop. 

Department seed programs director Lester Cannon says farmers will have to buy more of some lots to make up for the problem, but sellers will drop the price to make up for it.
