The Rev. Freddie Decal, above, leads the Confraternity of Our Lady of the Star of the Sea in a prayer for protection from hurricanes Sunday night at the statue in the Brashear Avenue median in Morgan City.

From the Editor: Prayers and predictions

“You pray for the hungry,” Pope Francis tells us. “Then you feed them. That is how prayer works.”
Praying for protection against hurricanes works like that, too.

The black bear above was spotted in spring 2017 on the bayou side of Riverview Lane near Green Acres in the unincorporated parish and photographed by Lana Bailey. The bear was climbing the fence at one of the houses and didn’t cause any damage. It slipped away before animal control authorities could arrive.

From the Editor: Groups sue to keep bears on endangered list

A fight is shaping up over Louisiana black bears.
