Jean-Paul Villere: Where’s the ‘crete?
~Uptown Messenger~I live and work in the Freret corridor, and for many moons now promises of a new streetscape have been on the horizon. Most recently, the collective residents and business owners were informed by the city just weeks ago the start date would be some time in early November. Look at your calendar.

'Special' cupcakes get Louisiana mother arrested
~Associated Press Reporting~The mother of a man incarcerated in the Eunice City Jail has been arrested after officers said she tried to smuggle narcotics to her son in a box of cupcakes. On Saturday, Dandaline K. Sattler of Eunice, and her boyfriend, Lindale Jamone Chaney of Ville Platte, were booked with introduction of contraband into a penal institution. According to police, Sattler's son, 18-year-old Phillip Foster Lafleur, who is in jail on multiple charges, contacted his mother and requested she and Chaney obtain narcotics, place them in a cupcake box and bring to them to the jail. A check by an officer revealed a small amount of synthetic marijuana in the box of cupcakes. It was unclear whether the suspects have attorneys.
