In my house growing up we had rules that were set and adjudicated by  the law of the land, my parents. A failure to follow these rules always resulted in what we used to call consequences. I think most people follow the rules and abide by them even if they don't agree with them

Durel Says Bridges To Be Open Soon

I so enjoy it when I run into any of you on the street or in the store or wherever and you tell me that you watch OR listen. Interaction with you guys is so much fun! And one of the things I enjoy doing is asking YOUR questions to Lafayette City-Parish President Joey Durel. Yes, he visits with Bruce and The Kennel Club each Thursday morning on 97.3 The Dawg, but before that, he stops by to answer viewer questions on Good Morning Acadiana on TV3 . One of the questions that SEVERAL viewers submitted (and then others repeated on the KATC Facebook fan page) was "when will the bridge on Chemin Metairie be completed?"

The Deadly Weapon That Almost Everyone Has, Even Your Kids!

You don't think of yourself a potential killer do you? Good, I was getting scared for a second. Here is the honest truth, a good number of us don't know how to drive! Sure we can make the car go backwards and forwards but the kicker is quite a few of us don't know, remember or recall the basic rules of the road. It's been a while since I studied the Louisiana Drivers Manual and unless your 16 I bet it's been a while for you too.  Want to see some statistics that will make you think twice about leaving your driveway?
