A Welcomed Sight

It’s back, and much welcomed.

The street sweeper had not been in operation because of repairs that were needed. But last Friday it made its appearance once again. After the ACHS homecoming parade the sweeper immediately went to work to clean up Railroad Ave. Although it would have been a tremendous help after the big Donaldsonville High parade, residents are just happy that it’s back to keep our streets clean.

Traffic Jam

In case you were wondering what it was or why the delay and major traffic jam that occurred last Thursday, it was due to an enormous 300 feet container that was being delivered to CF Industries. The slow moving voyage caused a delay in traffic as far back as ten miles. Inch by inch it finally reached its destination safely.
