Considerable excitement has Ijeen created Ijy the disappearance of an old man who was known in the city as D Pederson. Pederson came here from Mmneapolis about two weeks ago, and took ujj headquarters at No. Last Wednesdav morn- ing the old gentleman got up fi-om the breakfast table, hurriedlv went out, and has not been seen since.

But, at the mayor's request, while still too ill to be present, the members of the commission in the city met by appoint- ment and quietly perfected their organ- ization. Rogers was chosen president of the commission, and will devote henceforth a very large share of his time and attention to the carrying out of its design and instructions..
A room has been assigned to the commis- sion in City Hall and work has been actively begun on the line of the pro- posed terrace drive-way. So quietly, however, has the commis- sion set to work, and with such an in- tentional avoidance of parade of any kintl, that there is perhaps some danger that the city, at large, may fail to realize the vigor with which the work is being pressed, and the value of the immediate results to be attained if the hands of the commission are held up by the public and by the council that represents the city.
The cordial co-operation of the board of public works is promised, and there can be no doubt the council will heartily support the commission as soon as it realizes fully the immediate practical importance to the city of the improve- ments now under way, and the urgency of the public demami for their comple- tion. No representative body can seriously think of leaving any blocks in the way of a benefit to the city, so ob- vious and so extraordinary, and so cheaply to be obtained.
Dara and the team at the company modeled this modern design house on a traditional millinery. For her designs, Dara strives to mix equal parts of her Louisiana upbringing, a rich family heritage stretching back generations, and all of the modern hustle of her adopted home. Quality and timelessness breed longevity in fashion. That quality and the attention to detail are the result of almost a decade of work and effort that began at LSU. She knew college was an important first step, but beyond that, a step towards…what, exactly?
She perused the catalog of majors, but nothing grabbed her attention. There was a reason, though. While working on that first apparel gig, she discovered millinery and decided to further her education. She pursued accessory design classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she was also afforded the opportunity to take a course in operating a small business. Today, she operates the business with her husband, Trent Bailey Cobb, who handles the business, partnership and photography aspects of the company.
For her part, Dara still designs hats and oversees the creative direction of the brand. Colors are as varied as the material combinations she chooses.
Each hat, a unique classic. People care too much about sun coverage, so summer hats will always be a necessity. As for fall, felt-style hats, the colors and silhouettes are always changing. This classic, medium-brimmed fedora is offered in six colors, from ivory to pink, and sports a classic, black knit band.
Other influences find their way into the Evelyn, a medium-brimmed Boater with a strong, squared dome and handsome, moderately stiff brim — also offered in a selection of colors. The Evelyn is finished with a pair of tassels, tucked smartly behind a Boucle band. Over the long history of hat design, each generation has produced unique looks. Hats become a political statement as much as a fashion piece. Lincoln is as identified with the stiff, formal Stove Pipe hats as he is with his beard.
Today is no different, Dara says. Because of this, the Fall shows included smaller, cadet caps, newsboy caps and berets, and other styles to evoke that military-meets-activist style. I knew this going in, but I happen to be 35, and just now happened to get pregnant.
So, in addition to my monthly doctor visits, I was referred to a fetal maternity specialist. But the morning of the appointment, I had what I would call an emotional crash. I had read the brochures. I knew the risk. I never have. I arrived in the parking garage at After navigating the maze of elevators and hallways to the fourth floor, I showed my ID and sat and waited my turn.
Then the tears started. I knew what the specialist was about to tell me could be life-changing. The nurse asked if I needed a chaplain. I almost wish she had slapped me in retaliation, knocked me out of my emotional.
But she just smiled and understood, and thus I cried more. I loathe vulnerability, and no matter how much I fanned, my fears just rained down my face. When I met my husband, I gradually got used to loving someone more than myself. I had four years to get used to that feeling before I accepted it as truth.
When he leaves the house, I worry about his safety. And caring about someone that much makes life matter so much more, makes feeling so much deeper. Hurts hurt more because I care more.
And will I carry it well? All this fear was resting on my mind when the doctor came in. He saw my face and asked if I was okay. He looked like the typical doc, middle-aged, male, the smart looking one in the classroom years ago. It was comforting, sad to say.
He paused, and he slightly smiled. And then he nodded for a long time. I knew why I was there. I knew he had the knowledge to foresee a medical condition.
I also knew the gravity of the type of conditions he was looking for. He looked over the scans, and said her development looked normal at this point, that I would be back in five weeks. I walked the maze back to my car sort of numb. She will be totally reliant on us. I hope she likes me. I hope our best is good enough. I hope I can carry it. This was something that was very important to my parents, and it still is, even though their children are adults with their own families, and likewise, it is very important to Scott and me.
And with all this plotting and planning, I think it has made me become somewhat of a connoisseur of bucket lists. Does that sound strange? I hope not, because I have found, and even encouraged my readers to make a few of their own, that making a bucket list is a sort of fun and informal way of setting goals. So here we are readers, as I like to say, on the cusp of the holiday season, with my favorite time of year staring us in the face.
But, do I really have to recommend making apple cider or burning a fall scented candle? Those are just things we do here in the south, right?
Well, and make sweet tea and gumbo, but you get the picture. Readers, hear me clear, especially those of you with small. Stop and smell the cider…if you would, and pull out the big sheets of cardboard that I know you have left over from the summer bucket list I had you make a few months ago, and make one for the fall.
By the way, if you really take me up on this, post your posters on our BayouLife Facebook page that I know everyone has liked. Okay, so songs around the campfire is stretching it just a bit, but a few years ago we hung a big sheet on our garage door, borrowed a projector and watched a movie in our driveway. The kids loved it and Scott only complained a little bit. Okay, a lot actually, because the kids ran through his beloved flower beds and broke some plants while they played Hideand-Seek, and well, he loves his yard more than he loves me, so yeah…it was a lot.
BUT, it was a fun night for the kids and I even rolled my popcorn popper out there and we actually thought we were at the real movies. Next, speaking of movies, why not host a Halloween movie night. Now, let me just back up to the first Halloween column I wrote for BayouLife, nearly five years ago, when I told my readers how this holiday is one of my favorite. I have just always enjoyed dressing up, hosting a trick-or-treat party and having a hayride through our neighborhood.
So critics, be kind when I make this recommendation. Seriously, I booby-trap the doors when Scott is out-of-town, even when I set the alarm. And I have been known to sleep with a Psycho knife at my bedside, all because of this stupid movie. Wait, where was I? Oh yeah, a Halloween family movie night. Another reason to have.

We are open Monday-Friday and Saturdays Each year, the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council showcases the talents of local chefs, as well as visiting culinary artists.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Arts Council and its efforts to support and promote the arts in Louisiana Cultural Region 8. A variety of fine wines and craft beers will also be available for sampling.
Festival sponsors will be afforded reserved parking and early admittance to the event before the doors officially open at 6 p. Our first two years have been a tremendous success and garnered lots of enthusiasm among participating chefs and festival goers. This year should be even better.
With the first year a sellout, the Arts Council expanded in year two and moved to a larger venue for Friday night in Yard in Monroe and Lake Charles. These chefs will participate at the Friday evening tasting and stay to contribute their talents throughout the weekend. Tom loves to share his expertise as a sommelier and Durwin has partnered with him to bring back this popular event. Area restaurants will also host seated, multi-course dinners Saturday night.
They will be offering elaborately planned meals prepared by celebrated chefs. A lover of pairing food, wine and beer, he will present a meal designed to celebrate all three. Dana Milford has put together a five-course meal sourced locally and all gluten free. For those diners requiring a dairy free option, she will be able to accommodate that requirement also. Not one to be out done, Chef Pat Nolan is set to host an evening of fine food and wines at her location on Louisville Avenue.
All Saturday night events will be giving back to the arts by donating a portion of their proceeds to a designated arts organization. The bridge will closed for three hours, allowing patrons plenty of time to enjoy food, beer, and fun.
Area musicians will provide a live music backdrop while you stroll the Endom Bridge and enjoy the one-of-a-kind view. These are definitely for the bold. Despite the debilitating heat, fashionable women everywhere still find excuses to wear their suede boots, cashmere v-necks, and leather leggings once August is behind them.
Adding a few of these fun, trendy pieces to your wardrobe will surely make you a fashionista this season. Fall fashion is all about throwbacks and this trend definitely takes us back to the 80s and 90s. I love when a trend is extremely wearable for everyday, parties, church, etc. The midi skirt is just fabulous. The color red exudes confidence, power, romance and looks great on all skin tones and hair colors.
I wish I had saved all of my wonderful wide belts from high school although I doubt they woud still fit! For a young black kid from Ferriday, football was a great opportunity to get out of the Delta parishes, if only for a while.
After a year at Louisiana College, he transferred to ULM with designs of becoming the young, hip professional he wanted to be. That never crossed my mind. He would work for free if Jose would teach him how to sew. For the next few years, he mastered the skills necessary to build high-quality, fashionable suits and jackets. Apprenticing with Jose gave him an appreciation for quality and attention to detail.
He also learned about the various cuts of suits, the shapes of lapels, and the types of fabrics that go into making suits. The first spring line was revolutionary. The cuts of the jackets are at once traditional — there are dinner lapels, European lapels and traditionals, watch pockets and tucked vents — and anything but traditional.
For one blazer, Christien employed a vibrant, fuscia silk embroidered with a loose floral design. A third offering was even more stunning — purple paisley doublebreasted suit with a matched purple and gold bowtie.
For each of the creations, Christien drew inspiration from the season. That was my inspiration — do with suits what we do with flowers and bring out the color. It really was capturing the essence of spring in a collection of suits. A fall line followed just a few months later, and Christien Kollection kept this debut close to home, rolling out the new designs during New Orleans fashion week. For the Fall Collection, he chose more traditional fabrics, pairing them in unique ways.
He also began experimenting with the cuts of suits, the shapes of lapels. A traditional, double-breasted wool suit, complete with gold buttons, wears nicely. Christien added his own flair, though, by choosing a vibrant red wool, which he accented with an equally bold bowtie and red suede shoes. He had another goal in mind, too, with the fall collection. As with his Spring collection, his fall lines blew audiences away. Yet Christien pulls it off. Part of that is because he knows how to play to an audience.
With the Fall collection, he also introduced his first creations for women. The leather returns on the shoulders and in a single accent on the right collar, picking up on the militaristic trend in contemporary fashion.

Casual can be elegant and fun rises to all occasions. Of course it is nature and travel and daily experiences, but it is interesting to discover that many ideas and concepts are directly translated and borrowed from interiors.

It instantly ignites the space as a modern classic look. With fall weather approaching, I am ready for a change in my living room.
