Area Boy Scout leaders are upset that plans to renovate Morey Park on Main Street in Patterson appear to include getting rid of a Scout hut they say has stood at the park for 58 years.
West St. Mary Parish Relay for Life kicks off Saturday at noon at the Franklin High School field. The event in support of the American Cancer Society continues through midnight. Employees of the St. Mary Parish Clerk of Court Office wore jeans Friday rather than their usual uniforms as an in-office fundraiser for the Relay.
