The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a Rayne man wanted in connection with the simple burglary at a crawfish dock early Thursday morning, March 26, on Hwy 35 south of Rayne.

LEFT: Volunteers working the “Money Tree” portion of the Reality Store begin the work of showing students from Acadia Parish schools, in this case Iota High, what type of financial future they can look forward to if they follow their chosen career paths. RIGHT: Representatives from Acadia General Hospital speak with two students during Thursday’s Career Connections EXPO at the Rice Festival Bulding. Acadia General was one of many businesses and organizations on hand for the event to help sophomores and seniors from schools in Acadia Parish understand what their careers are really like.

Sophomores and seniors from schools across Acadia Parish met in Crowley and pondered majors, chose future paths and learned about real life Thursday. Not set-in-stone futures, but enough to hopefully provide a real look at life outside of their hallowed high school halls.
