By a scant 336 votes, Kirk Lepine is the president elect of Plaquemines Parish.

Parish President Amos Cormier III was unsuccessful in his bid to win a full term in office in the Dec. 8 runoff election against Parish Council member Kirk Lepine. But he already made (possible) history of another kind with an unusual campaign tactic.

Plaquemines Parish’s new Civil Service director is on the job.


The Belle Chasse High School Cross Country team is congratulated by the Plaquemines Parish Council at the council’s March 8 meeting for winning its second consecutive state title.
