L’Auberge Casino Resort in Lake Charles celebrates the holiday season with an elaborate gingerbread house designed by its award winning pastry team. Pastry Chef Bill Foltz and his team of elves designed and constructed the sugary sculpture after months of planning and sevens days of preparation and assembly. It is now on display at the casino entrance in front of Ember Grille & Wine Bar.

A red snapper is released by Sea Grant researchers during a study trip

A team of university and government scientists, selected by an expert review panel convened by the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium, will conduct an independent study to estimate the number of red snapper in the U.S. waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

“I look forward to the insights this project will provide as we work to study and manage this valuable resource,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. “Communities around the Gulf of Mexico depend on the availability of healthy red snapper stocks to support their livelihoods.”

Two-time Monsignor Kelly Catholic High School all-state baseball player and current Rice University infielder Ford Proctor has been named one of the Top 100 college prospects by Baseball America for the upcoming 2018 Major League Baseball Draft.

The junior was one of only three Owls to start and/or play in all 64 games last season and led the team with 58 runs scored, which gave him a high Conference USA ranking. Proctor also led the Owls in walks with 39 and was second on the team with 19 doubles while finishing fourth in the lineup with a .311 batting average.
