Parish fair honors
Local resident Bill Moore, center, was recognized during the Junior Fair and Livestock Show last weekend for placing the highest bid in the 2013 livestock auction. With the bid, Moore purchased a prize winning pig from Zachery Hebert, left. The trophy for the highest bid recipient went to Hebert and was presented by Bucky Lovell, president of the fair association. The 2014 fair at Franklin Senior High School last weekend was dedicated to the late Pookie Rodriguez, Mike Payton and Blaine Tabb, all local supporters of the fair prior to their deaths in 2013. The fair is a 4-H and FFA function for students across St. Mary Parish.
