Our parish just wrapped up a special meeting concering the removal of our Defenders of the South statue here in Lake Charles and with the results of the vote the statue will remain in it's current place. This has been the third attempt to get it removed. While most people don't know or want to know the history and reasons behind the monument. I personally am glad the our parish goverment has basically said enough is enough. Now just waiting to see if this makes the news, this attempt was started by one of the judges up for election opened the can of worms for votes it made MSM.
