At midday on Monday, November 13, 1961, an oil tanker crew spotted Captain Julian Harvey, a retired airman, floating on a dinghy in the Atlantic Ocean. With him was the body of seven-year-old René Duperrault, the youngest member of a family that had been traveling for the past week with Harvey and his wife on a ship called the Bluebelle.Once he was rescued and taken to the coast guard, Harvey told them how a storm swept in at midnight, breaking the masts and triggering a cascade of events where his only option was to flee the burning boat, alone. He said he came across René's body in the water and tried to save her life, but was unable to do so.That would have been the official story of the Bluebelle, if not for a second ocean rescue days later. Three and a half days after the Bluebelle sank, eleven year old Terry Jo Duperrault was found barely clinging to life atop a disintegrating float. Her story about how the Bluebelle sank — and how she managed to survive for days on the ocean without food, water, or shelter — would change everything.But first, Zoey is here with a Something Something that qualifies as a Something Southern AND a Something Spooky: the haunted Calcasieu Courthouse in Lake Charles, Louisiana!CW: suicide.Sources: https://hauntedhospitality.wordpress.com/2022/09/20/ep-77-the-sinking-of-the-bluebelle

Miami Hurricanes head coach Mario Cristobal confirmed on Monday that true freshman running back TreVonte' Citizen suffered a “significant” injury in the scrimmage on Saturday, August 13th. Mario says the timetable is not yet known for his recovery and further assessments will be made. Citizen is a 4-star back out of Lake Charles, Louisiana. When he's healthy again he will likely be a major contributor.  Host Alex Donno reacts to the news and describes the remaining running back rotation, which still looks very strong with Henry Parrish, Jaylan Knighton, Don Chaney Jr and Thad Franklin. Miami is blessed with a ton of depth. Meanwhile, Cristobal shared positive news on the injury of left tackle Zion Nelson. He should be ready to hit the practice field soon.  Donno also reacts to the first preseason AP Poll which just dropped on Monday. The Miami Hurricanes are ranked 16th. Donno explains the logic behind it and how a ranking can be used against Miami if things don't start well in the 2022 season. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

In the mid-20th century, neighborhoods on Lafayette's northside looked a lot like neighborhoods communities are trying to build now. In places like McComb, Veazey and Fightinville, families could live, work and play on their blocks.  The communities were stitched together by schools, churches — and businesses. Entrepreneurship was a big part of the fabric of the community: the family grocery store or barber shop. A restaurant or even a zydeco club.  Fast forward to the 21st century and many of those businesses have vanished. And opportunity left with them.  But the spirit of entrepreneurship is still very much alive. And organizations like the Lafayette Entrepreneurship and Economic Development Center at UL see an opportunity to revive Lafayette's Northside with that spirit.  Kevin Guillory grew up on the Northside — of Lake Charles that is. And that community tells a similar story. Growth and prosperity moved southward in Lake Charles, leaving older neighborhoods behind.  Kevin got his MBA from UL and moved to Texas, thinking he'd never look back. But look back he did. He landed at UL in 2014 as an admissions counselor and works today as the LEED Center's Office Coordinator.  Kevin's behind the scenes work is essential to the success of the LEED Center's Accelerate Northside program, which offers workshops and training for entrepreneurs. That program kicked off in 2021 and has kept growing ever since.  Accelerate Northside was modeled after a successful program offered by the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. And one of the guys responsible for importing the idea was Kevin's colleague, Jonathan Shirley. Jonathan grew up in Abbeville and has long family ties to economic development. His mom used to run the Chamber of Commerce and his dad was an extension agent with Wildlife and Fisheries. Jonathan has been the LEED Center's Program Manager since 2020.  In that role, Jonathan has overseen the launch of Accelerate Northside and its “head and heart philosophy.” The idea is they don't just teach you how, but try to understand the why of your business.  Even if you have a great idea for a business and the drive to give it everything you've got, if you don't come from a business background or grow up around entrepreneurs it can be tough to know essential business basics, and especially how to avoid making mistakes you don't need to make. You can check out graduates from Accelerate Northside on previous episodes of Out to Lunch - especially The Williamses and Creole Nutcracker - and see for yourself the significant difference Kevin and Jonathan's program is making. You can see photos from this show and a whole lot more at itsacadiana.com.

When punk rock first appeared in the middle 1970s, the major record companies in north America really didn't care...they were happily making millions and millions of dollars from big rock bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles..... And there was millions more coming in from disco...which was sweeping the world....it was like a plague–but a profitable one...so why would they bother with this weird stuff bubbling up from tiny, scary clubs on both sides of the Atlantic?...they were too busy going to big stadium shows and getting down at Studio 54... But this new music wouldn't go away...so when Led Zeppelin broke up and the Stones and The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac disappeared up their own buts and the disco bubble finally burst the record execs tried to tame it......marketing the gentler and less intense bands under the umbrella of something they called “New Wave”. Oh, they tried with punk, but they got it really, really wrong...you gotta wonder what was going through that executive's head when The Ramones were picked to open shows for toto.... No, seriously...The Ramones were the opening act for Toto on one tour...I swear I didn't make that up...it happened in Lake Charles, Louisiana...January 26, 1979...they were also paired up with Foreigner and Blue Oyster Cult... But we have to be fair....the general public just didn't get punk....when The Sex pistols appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in the fall of 1977, it was one of their poorest-selling issues, ever....mind you, the headline read “rock is sick and living in London”...the story began with a quote from Isaiah 3:24: “instead of perfume, there will be rottenness”.... After that, most Rolling Stone writers were instructed to stop writing about this music...it was bad for business...really bad... But there were people who got it....and frankly, fans of non-mainstream music were quite happy to be left alone...they were into this new music precisely because they hated the mainstream...and over the next dozen years, the musical underground was allowed left to gestate undisturbed......it slowly mutated and evolved into something very unique---very powerful...this is the complete history of alt-rock, chapter 8...

Yvette Girouard, legendary softball coach, joined Discover Lafayette to discuss her incredible career on the 50th anniversary of the enactment of Title IX which made it illegal to discriminate in educational programs that receive federal funds. A native of Broussard, Yvette served as head softball coach at UL-Lafayette from 1981 to 2000, and then at LSU from 2000 to 2011. She won over 75 percent of her games on the collegiate level. Yvette has been named coach of the year by three separate conferences: the SEC (four times), the Sun Belt (2000), and the Southland (1984, 1985 & 1987), as well as Louisiana Coach of the Year 13 times. Yvette Girouard is one of the most accomplished coaches in NCAA Division 1 History. She is one of only 3 coaches to take two teams to the Women's College World Series. She has been inducted into the Louisiana Softball Coaches Hall of Fame, the UL Lafayette Athletic Hall of Fame, LSU Athletic Hall of Fame, the Louisiana Hall of Fame in Natchitoches, and the National Fast Pitch Coaches Hall of Fame. Today, many of us take equal opportunities in sports, especially for women, for granted. But for Yvette, who attended Comeaux High School and then USL before Title IX had taken root, the opportunities were slim to none. The only sport available to Yvette was softball. And there were no scholarships offered to the women volleyball players. Yvette began playing softball in Lafayette at 18 and was picked up by a New Iberia team the next year; both were slow pitch teams. She had never seen fast pitch softball until she was 19 and saw men playing. Fastpitch softball is a fast, underhanded throw clocked at speeds of up to 70 mph. Yvette says at 43 feet, that pitch is comparable to one Nolan Ryan would pitch in his heyday. In 1976, Yvette was hired at Lafayette High to coach fastpitch softball. One catch: there was no softball field for women and Yvette and volunteers had to build their own field. She says, "I hand-tilled the infield." After four years at Lafayette High, she returned to work for her family's restaurant, Ton's Drive-In in Broussard. Then in 1981, USL called and offered her a job coaching softball. Once again, there was no field, and more amazingly, no player scholarships to entice good players. The team consisted of walk-ons, mainly from Baton Rouge, Lake Charles, and Houston which had established fastpitch teams. It took quick work to get it together; Yvette was hired in October and their first game was the next February. In those days, the kids played all the games and didn't specialize in sports. Getting the USL softball team was a Girouard family effort. Her mom made the first uniforms, taking the men's discarded basketball warmups and converting them into pants. Her dad gave her a truck to use to store the team equipment. Her starting part-time salary was $3,000 and she continued to work part-time at Ton's to make ends meet where other coaches could call her to schedule games and work out arrangements. After 10 years as she had become full-time, her salary was $25,000.00 and she had cajoled seven scholarships from USL for recruiting players. At the end of her tenure, there were eleven scholarships awarded each year. Dr. Ray Authement had promised to build Yvette a softball field, and she recalled the location being the old dairy farm before Cajundome Blvd. or Bourgeois Hall had been constructed. A bull greeted her on her first visit to the property. In no time, Yvette's teams grew in national stature as well as became quite popular in the local community who grew to love attending games and rooting on the girls. "Our softball games became the event you wanted to be at. It became my passion. It became my child. I gave birth to it and it kept getting bigger and bigger. And I could sell it. I'm a Cajun girl, I graduated from here. Once we became really, really good, my girls were the Cinderellas of the town." Even with success,

The Acadiana Advocate's Ken Stickney joined Discover Lafayette to share his life story as a career journalist. He is a man with a compassionate heart who truly loves what he does for a living. Ken is a native New Englander who grew up in Peabody, Massachusetts, just north of Boston. He moved to the Deep South more than 40 years ago to complete his education – and stayed. It was on a whim that he joined his brother to visit New Orleans one holiday on a fun road trip, and he became enthralled with our region. He ended up studying philosophy at a Jesuit university, Spring Hill College, in Alabama. He's always found the South a fascinating place, particularly Louisiana. He has since spent 42 years in the newspaper business, almost all of it in the Deep South or in Gulf Coast states, and has held almost every newsroom position from reporter to editor. He has worked for Louisiana newspapers in Monroe, Lake Charles, and Lafayette since 1999. Once he moved to Louisiana, he took a course in Louisiana history so that he could understand our state and its rich legacy. Ken's focus has always been on how the news he's reporting affects the people involved and their neighborhoods, as well as who they were. Issues such as zoning can profoundly impact people's quality of life and the value of their homes, and his reporting has reflected those realities. He recalled when the legendary Alabama coach, Bear Bryant, died in 1982 and he was asked to cover the burial; a highlight of that sad event was seeing Joe Namath at the burial ceremony. During his career, he has chronicled events in communities from McComb, Mississippi to Tuscaloosa (twice), from Atlanta to Port Arthur, Texas. He has handled news beats from public safety to higher education, business to religion. In a staffing pinch, he spent two weeks handling the recipes for a mid-South daily newspaper's society pages. He has written about murders and rescues, birth announcements, and obituaries. He spoke of how over his years of reporting the South has evolved from being a unique region, with its own mannerisms, customs, and politics, into a homogenous area more akin to the rest of the country. In 2009, Ken Stickney was awarded the American Society of Newspaper Editors' top national award for editorial writing, and he has won or shared national, regional and state news writing awards, as well as editorial and column writing awards across the South. He has worked for Louisiana newspapers in Monroe, Lake Charles, and Lafayette since 1999 and is currently with the Acadiana Advocate. A longtime “non-traditional” student, Stickney holds an associate's in liberal arts from North Shore Community College in Massachusetts; a bachelor's in philosophy from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama; a master's in communication from The University of Alabama, where he was a Graduate Council Fellow; and a master's in history from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. He has been an adjunct college instructor in communications and history. Ken has written a thesis on World War II correspondent John Henry, the father of one of his close friends who was a sportswriter for the Hearst News service. Henry covered the Departments of the Army and Navy from five continents during WWII, a fete probably not matched by any other journalist. Among other places, Henry was stationed at Casablanca along with Walter Cronkite; his papers are now at the WWII Museum in New Orleans. Mr. Henry's life inspired Ken. With the funding awarded by a grant, Ken had the opportunity to tour Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1984 to interview Japanese civilians about the aftermath of the bombing, an experience of a lifetime. Ken also wrote a thesis on Unionist newspaper editor James G. Taliaferro of Catahoula Parish and has completed a draft of a biography on a Louisiana oilman, C. Paul Hilliard. He and former Lafayette newswoman Blue Rolfes are co-researching a book on the three sainthood causes being purs...

“What if I were to have someone who looked like me, worried about my mental health when I was a child? How much better of a human would I be now? How many of those internal doubts that I had would be eliminated? And I wanted to be one of those people who really drove the conversation and utilized every ounce of my influence to really create something that can revolutionize what's accessible in terms of mental health.” - Dr. Russell Ledet MD PHD MBA   On December 14, 2019, 15 African American medical students from Tulane University School of Medicine posed in front of a former slave cabin at the Whitney Plantation in Edgard, Louisiana, while donning their white coats. “We are truly our ancestors' wildest dreams,” said a tweet of one of the photos. The image went viral and multiple national news outlets picked up the story.   The students formed The 15 White Coats organization,  a nonprofit group with a threefold mission: To reimagine cultural imagery in learning spaces, lessen the financial burden of medical school for applicants of color, and influence cultural literacy in learning spaces. Donations and the sale of photographs and posters allow The 15 White Coats to distribute their photos to classrooms across the U.S., establish scholarships, and more.   Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer welcomes Dr. Russell Ledet, MD, PhD, MBA to talk about the barriers and doubts he faced as a black man and aspiring physician along his journey from security guard to MD PhD MBA. Specifically, Dr. Ledet shines light on the disadvantages that medical school applicants from marginalized communities face. In recognition of how important it is to have role models, Dr. Ledet encourages listeners to take action. He is receiving national recognition for starting 15 White Coats. Dr. Ledet talks about his journey from being in the military to becoming a security guard to realizing that he could go to college, and eventually to medical school after earning his PhD at NYU. He is a native of Lake Charles, Louisiana.    Dr. Ledet earned his bachelors degree from Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College at Baton Rouge. He earned his PhD in Molecular Oncology from NYU School of Medicine, Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences. He earned his MD and MBA from Tulane University. He is a Triple Board Resident (Pediatrics/Psychiatry/Child and Adolescent Psychiatry) at Indiana University School of Medicine. LinkedIn: Dr. Russell J.

Following medical school, he plans to focus on mental health accessibility for marginalized communities.

We're all looking for that next great business idea. And sometimes it's hovering right above you. Or maybe sitting in the palm of your hand.  Entrepreneurship isn't always about inventing a new product or service. Most successful new companies are solving problems or seeing opportunities that should be obvious, but aren't to most people.  The solution can be a high flying innovation or it can be a commitment to quality. Whatever it is, it usually pays off for the folks who have the good sense to pounce on the idea that's right in front of them. If you're first to market: well, it's easy to drum up business. It might be hard to imagine revolutionizing the drum stick. But that's what Frank Kincel is doing with his company LA Backbeat.  Your average rock and roll drummer can blow through two or three sticks every gig. That's a lot of wood, and the costs add up. Frank stepped off the road from a career as a touring drummer to start carving high-quality, durable, small-batch drum sticks. LA Backbeat has become a phenomenon among professional drummers, who turn to Frank's sticks for their build and consistency. Instead of two or three sticks per gig. Try two or three gigs per stick. That's saving money.  Frank's been a tinkerer since childhood. He built his first bass drum out of scrap at age 10. Today, he's lathing 250 sticks a day and shipping them to drummers around the country.  Adam Zayor's career took off when he looked up from his job overseeing petrochemical megaprojects. A marketing drone hovered above him and he thought, why not use these for his job.  Adam launched Fly Guys in 2017 and has since grown it into a multinational aerial imaging company based here in Lafayette. Fly Guys helps clients in agriculture, energy, construction and telecommunications get a birds eye view of their projects. It's a clever, low-cost business model.  Fly Guys brokers with 5,500 contract drone pilots, using project managers to coordinate them. Fly Guys doesn't own the equipment, which makes the model easy to scale up. And scale up it has: Today the company operates in all 50 states and 72 countries. Out to Lunch Acadiana is recorded live over lunch at Tula Tacos and Amigos in downtown Lafayette. You can find photos from this on itsacadiana.com. And there's more drummer and drone conversation, believe it or not, on Out to Lunch Acadiana. Check out Danny Devillier, drummer with a music school - https://itsacadiana.com/2020/09/29/remember-when-we-had-a-music-business/ and Lake Charles drone entrepreneur Cody Porche https://itsacadiana.com/2020/10/20/lake-charles-2020/.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Today on "Catholic Drive Time" What is the link between abortion and gay marriage? Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse – Ruth Institute – shares why the fall of Roe could lead to the fall of Obergefell! Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse – Ruth Institute – the Survivors of the Sexual Revolution that thing you say you want (contraception for married couples with serious health issues) is not really all you want. Impose one invented “right” on the populace and the legal infrastructure will quickly morph into something much bigger. There is one important difference between Roe and Obergefell, though: Roe galvanized the pro-life community and created a vibrant, authentically grassroots nationwide movement. After Obergefell, proponents of marriage threw up their hands and said, “Oh, well, we tried” and moved on to other issues. The right-to-life movement never gave up. She will present: “Defending Traditional Christian Sexual Ethics Like a Pro” at the Ruth Institute's upcoming Fifth-Annual Summit for Survivors of the Sexual Revolution June 24-25 in Lake Charles, Louisiana. David L Gray – Talking Catholic – a civilization in decline!

Catholics – lay & clergy – embrace grave evils and promote them publicly. Can we just elect a better society? What is the solution to all that troubles our world.

Just because we're 1,800 miles away from the other L.A., doesn't mean you can't have a career in Hollywood.  State tax incentives have lured productions to Louisiana over the last decade or so. And that's given a lot of local talent an opportunity to work in the industry without making the leap of faith in Los Angeles.  You've probably heard of some big budget films and TV shows shot in Louisiana. I'm thinking of Morgan Freeman sightings and Blackham Coliseum's cameo in the Secretariat biopic.  Hollywood's venture eastward has given expat talent a reason to come home — without giving up their day jobs.  You might know Christiaan's guest from appearances in True Detective, Cedric the Entertainer and My Amazing Cheap Date New Orleans.  Amy Brassette is an actor and producer born and raised in Lake Charles. She specializes in voice acting and is known for disappearing into characters. She does a lot of voice-over work, and you've heard her characters on the Simpsons, Duck Dodgers and the computer game Everquest. Movie magic is one thing. How about something more up close and personal? Stand-up comedy is a tough game to crack into, so it helps to have a solid hook — like a Jedi mind trick.  Flip Orley is a comic and a hypnotist. Flip got interested in hypnotism at an early age, later honing his techniques with some psychology courses at the University of Arizona. Since then, he's made a career billing himself as America's premier comic hypnotist. He also develops audio downloads for the clinical applications of hypnotism: you can get tapes of Flip coaching you through stress management, weight control and working on your poker game. Flip tours nationally but lives right here in Lafayette. Out to Lunch Acadiana is recorded live over lunch at Tula Tacos and Amigos in downtown Lafayette. You can find photos from this on itsacadiana.com. And check out Flip Orley's previous appearance on Out to Lunch with equally wisecracking Johnny Blancher from Rock'n'Bowl.

Collectively, they're known as the CITGO 6. The US government has stated that they are unlawfully detained.In October 2019, the Vadell family submitted Tomeu's case to the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (UNWGAD). It usually takes 6-12 months for UNWGAD to release their opinion on a case. It has been 2.5 years and to this day, the UNWGAD has not released an opinion on Tomeu Vadell. On this episode, we have the honour of speaking to Tomeu's daughter, Cristina Vadell who talks to us about this UNWGAD delay and what needs to be done. Cristina also talks to us about her father's current condition and how he is coping, the recent release of Gustavo Cardenas who is one of the CITGO 6 as well as the backlash from US opposition party politicians objecting to the Biden administration's engagement with Venezuela which resulted in the release of two Americans including Gustavo.We end the episode talking about what the US government, news media and public can do to help bring Tomeu Vadell home to his family in Lake Charles, Louisiana.Follow Pod Hostage Diplomacy on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with our work.Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/PodHostageDiplo)

President Biden's Equality Act: The Cost is Childhood Originally published March 3, 2022, by Issues, Etc. Republished April 26th, 2022 by Ruth Institute.   In today's episode of the Ruth Institute Podcast, we tune in to Issues, etc. Dr. Erin Brewer, cofounder of Advocates Protecting Children and author of the books, Always Erin and Trans-ing Our Children speaks of President Biden's Equality Act which will force LGBT issues on children. Dr. Brewer is a close friend of the Ruth Institute and has been featured on Ruth Institute's Dr. J Show multiple times and was invited to speak at last year's Summit for Survivors in Lake Charles. Dr. J Show no. 1 Dr. J Show no. 2 Dr. Brewer explains that Biden's push for accepting people, so called, “born in the wrong body” seems almost as if a religion to him. She gets into some of the gory details of what these gender-confused youths experience by taking cross-sex hormones, mutilating their bodies, and never being happy with their self-image. Because of their age, they retard their natural development and don't reach the fullness of growth which manifests in adulthood. Dr. Brewer explains that President Biden's Equality Act will make Sexual Orientation Change Efforts (SOCE), illegal, fund transition interventions, and require doctors to participate in them, which necessarily will be a curb on the religious freedom of healthcare professionals. It will allow men to infiltrate women sports and not only dominate them in the arena but also in the bathrooms. There is a big danger here. Continue listening to get the scoop!

We discussed her early beginnings, becoming an actress, entrepreneurship, teaching workshops, and the beauty industry. Taja V. Simpson is a Louisiana native of West African and European decent and her colorful background allows her to constantly bring new characters to life. She fell in love with acting when she was seven years old when she and her cousins would 'play pretend'. They would watch movies, learn all the lines and then act them out for fun. Her favorite movie at that time was Berry Gordy's "The Last Dragon" and to this day she can still recite all the lines in the movie. "Who's The Master? Sho-Nuff!" Although she loved acting at a young age, there weren't any programs or schools in Lake Charles, LA that would help cultivate that skill set. She went on to graduate from McNeese State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mass Communication and an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism. From there, she was on the path of being a News Reporter/Anchor. After College, she moved to Houston, TX but there was a still small voice in her that kept saying, 'you should try acting,' so she did. She enrolled in acting workshops and ended up winning three awards for her performances. (Best Actress, Best Overall Performance and People's Choice) Now, she was bit by the acting bug and there was no turning back. She would have never thought that 'playing pretend' with her family as a young child would also be what she ultimately would do for a living. Versatility is Taja's greatest accomplishments which is what lead her to guest star in multiple roles on some of the most popular television shows of our time. She received her first breakout role in The Bold & The Beautiful as Adele which she recurred on the show for over two years. Since then some of the shows she has appeared in are; Grey's Anatomy, NCIA, The Thundermans, NCIS:LA, The Soul Man, KC Undercover, and Lethal Weapon. Taja was widely known for her role as the fun and sassy wife opposite legendary Actor and Director Tyler Perry; in Lionsgate's "Tyler Perry's Boo2! A Madea Halloween," and can be seen as Priscilla Owen in BET's newest drama, Tyler Perry's "The Oval." Taja is also a film director with over 40 plus productions under her belt from stage plays to music videos and short films. Next up is directing television and her first feature. In her new book,"Cracking The Acting Code: A Practical Step By Step Guide To Becoming A Professional Actor", Taja shares her unique story and expertise from moving from a small town in Louisiana, making it on the big screen in Hollywood, and becoming one of the most trusted names in the entertainment business. In order to succeed in the entertainment industry its important to be multi-talented both on and off screen. From behind the scenes to being in front and center, Actor, Author, Director and Keynote Speaker Taja V. Simpson has proven just that.
