All Saints Day is this Saturday and St. Mary Magdalen Parish releases its cemetery schedule.  During this annual commemoration, cemeteries are blessed in order to remember those who have gone on before us in death.  This year the schedule for the blessing of cemeteries is as follows:

Roddie Romero and the Hub City All-Stars will perform Saturday at noon.

The Giant Omelette Celebration turns 30 years old this year and because of that, the person who is in charge of landing the music entertainment for the Celebration got the green light to try and get good musical entertainment.
A quiet Kaplan City Council meeting turned into a heated discussion between Mayor Kirk Champagne and two event chairmen last Tuesday. The Louisiana Cajun Food Fest chairman, Alice Stelly, and the Boogie on the Boulevard chairman, Mike Kloesel approached the council table to turn in two checks to the mayor for their respective events.

Roddie Romero and the Hub City All-Stars will perform Saturday at noon.
