The Lafayette Parish School Board meets Wednesday to consider taking a formal and unified stand against proposed legislation that singles out the board.

The notion of introducing a new food to the American public is almost inconceivable in an era of TV chefs, global cuisine and foodie websites.
 that's what happened 50 years ago at the 1964 New York World's Fair in Queens, N. Y., when a family from Belgium introduced Belgian waffles, topped with fresh whipped cream, powdered sugar and sliced strawberries.
Vermersch said that for years she ran a coffee shop, MariePaule's Authentic Belgian Waffles, in her current home of Albuquerque, New Mexico, that featured a picture of the 1964 World's Fair.
"People would look at the name and see the picture and say, 'I ate those waffles at the World's Fair,' and they'd pick up the phone and call their parents," said Vermersch, who is in New York to attend the fair's 50th anniversary celebration this month, and also to care for her 95-year-old mother, who lives in Queens.
Vermersch said she vowed never to create an instant mix because the recipe requires fresh, carefully prepped ingredients: pure vanilla, fresh yeast or self-rising flour, melted but cooled sweet butter, and eggs at room temperature, with egg whites added at the end.

Authorities say the death of a woman found in her Lowell home over the weekend is considered suspicious.
Police responded to a call for medical assistance at the home of 52-year-old Elaine Sweeney in the city's Pawtucketville neighborhood at about 2 a.m. Sunday.

Lowell police and the Middlesex district attorney's office are investigating.
An autopsy, including toxicology, tests is being conducted on the body.
No additional details were immediately available.
A federal bankruptcy court overseeing Natchez Regional Medical Center's Chapter 9 filing may decide this week whether to appoint some to oversee patient care.
The county-owned hospital filed for bankruptcy in March month in what officials said was an effort to keep the facility's doors open after its financial liabilities exceeded its assets.
"The ombudsman looks at factors like the quality of patient care, the financial ability of the hospital to maintain that care and the existence of an internal ombudsman program to protect patients," Shaffer said.
