True Compassion: Group of ladies team up to sew burial remembrances

It takes special people to want to volunteer their time to create something that touches and helps heal a  heart of a broken family.
There are 40 to 50 ladies from Acadiana, who have joined forces to create “Steps to Heaven.”
These ladies, ages 18 to 81, spend hours and hours transforming wedding dresses, prom dresses, and baptism dresses into  burial remembrances for families who have lost an infant through a miscarriage, still birth or infant death.

Scammers getting smarter with phone numbers

Your phone rings. If you have caller ID, you check the number and it says, “Town of Erath.” You answer it and on the other end is a nice man trying to sell you insurance for seniors. You think it is real because the phone number is coming from city hall. But then you learn it is a scam.
On Monday, an Erath resident received that phone call from Erath City Hall. The young man made a sells pitch about senior insurance. The caller ID said the call was coming from Erath City Hall.
