BACK IN BUSINESS: Brent “Blue” Foreman, dispatcher at the Rayne Power Plant, sounds the noon whistle on Nov. 16 for the first time in months. The whistle, a long-standing tradition in Rayne and many small municipalities across the south, had been out of commission for a number of months. (Acadian-Tribune photo by Steve Bandy)
