Voters may be pleased to learn that for the fall elections, early voting will be held at the Martin Luther King Center at 309 Cora Street, 70501. As opposed to where Lafayette early takes place for the early voting that begins Saturday, June 20, 1010 Lafayette, 3rd floor of the government building, where parking is very limited, the MLK center will have lots of parking space and social distancing will be much easier. This early voting period that includes Primary voting for Democratic and Republican committee representatives and presidential primary will include both July 3 and 4, from 8:30 each morning until 6 p.m.. IT IS not too early to make your request for absentee and Covid vote by mail ballots. People who wait unil the last chance to apply will likely not get their ballots in time to get them delivered in time to be counted! So start now. Already 5000 ballots have been requested and about 2000 completed ballots have been received. Be safe. Take advantage for vote by mail if you have any concerns about the COVID threat to your health. These are available at sos.la.gov.
Print and follow the directions OR request them from the Registrar of voters if you need to pick up the form or have it mailed. Be sure to know the deadlines for arrival of your completed application and ballot. The phone number for our Registrar of Voters is 337 291 7140.

Today, a runner from the trek from Alaska to South America was interviewed on NPR about his book released called Spirit Run: A 6,000-Mile Marathon Through North America's Stolen Land. . Our hearts and spirits were moved by their stop at the Begnaud House to share their stamina and courage with those who gathered to meet them. A new assembly will take on the challenge soon from Alaska. Noé Álvarez, the author, talked about how his run was in honor of his father, a migrant worker from Mexico, who toiled as a laborer in the fields with a constant message to his son to get away, to learn and seek a better life, but Noé had a heart for working the farms. Even so, he went on to follow his father's advice with scholarships to prestigious schools but he talks of always feeling anxious and an inner calling to seek peace.

For many years, the highlight of the Mardi Gras season for residents in Scott has been their annual parade. The jubilation has grown through the years, as well as the number of parade participants. Pretty much dodging the forecast of rain, the Scott parade is again on of Lafayette's most enjoyable examples of how we laissez les bons temps rouler.

The Great Scott Herald Story

The Great Scott Herald had completed its 10th year as a quarterly newsletter. After the test pilot within the Community Chronicles in 2015, the Herald became under its umbrella in Spring! It now be seen within the Community Chronicles 40-page spread with a reliable input from the city and stories that highlight Scott happenings and interests among those from Arnaudville, Duson, Carencro, Grand Coteau, North Lafayette and Sunset! Community Chronicles has a distribution of 6000 and online readership of 10000. Every month, the Chronicles features a human interest story about someone within the readership area. We think the Scott Herald partnership made sense and opened opportunity and broadened the readership for the community and local businesses. The best place for Scott news is where Positive News sets the tone. Enjoy!

The first issue of The Great Scott Herald was published in August 2004. It was an answer to then-Councilman Purvis Morrison’s suggestion that the city have a communication that would concentrate on events and activities within the city. The first issue was a slender six-page publication that grew to a 14-page production before it morphed into a segment of the Chronicles. Regular columns included the input from the city’s mayor “From City Hall” and the “Chiefs’ Dispatch.” It also included a quarterly calendar from its first issue and school blackboard by the last year. The newsletter was always produced by Hulco Printing and layout was always coordinated with one of their graphic designers. Melody Gilcrease was especially helpful in the smooth coordination between producing the Herald and getting it published, while members of the LLC board under which the newsletter was first established, Purvis Morrison and Paul Murphy Boudreaux, helped with continuing the operations.

Thank you all for a successful product that many enjoy and liked to share. As you see, it continues to connect with people in Scott and the surrounding communities.
