Monday’s storm with strong winds blew down a pecan tree, causing damage to grave sites at Thomas Cemetery in Siracusaville.

Bears still on the move

A black bear is seen Thursday by U.S. 90 in Berwick. Another bear was spotted in a Patterson neighborhood Saturday. At least four bears have been hit by cars from Calumet to Centervillle since Thanksgiving, said Catherine Siracusa, parish black bear conflict officer. However, bear activity in residential areas appears to be lower than usual due to residents properly using their bear-proof garbage cans, she said. (St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office photo)

Black bears are out and about in the Tri-City area, but proper use of bear-proof garbage cans in the area appears to be limiting their presence in residential areas.
