SUMMARY: Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 10 to 24-year-olds in Louisiana, with rates particularly high among African American teens. A task force organized by Representative Edmond Jordan has been established to study these rates and find solutions. Suicide rates for Black individuals between the ages of 10 and 24 rose 36 percent from 2018 to 2021, while rates for white individuals in the same age group dropped four percent. The task force aims to understand the causes behind these rates and hopes to use the research to prevent suicides in other communities as well.

SUMMARY: Residents in Coteau, St. Landry Parish, have expressed concerns about the poor quality of water supplied by Water Works District 3.

However, Director Brad Cradeur assures that there have been significant improvements in water quality and infrastructure repairs since he took over. Cradeur's team is working tirelessly to provide the town with the quality of water it deserves.

Coteau residents have complained for a long time about the poor quality of water they have been supplied with.
