The location of an upcoming Mardi Gras Art Show is the Iota Mercantile and Museum. The interesting location was built in 1906 as an office and drugstore. The photograph is of Ione Durio, the last of the druggists.

Immaculate Conception Church in Washington, which predated the Civil War, burned to the ground Friday, Jan. 14. Parishioners said they smelled smoke during 6:30 a.m. Mass. Fire apparently erupted in the attic in the rear of the church about 9 a.m. The old dry, cypress lumber erupted into a ball of flame within minutes and firefighters had little chance to save the historic structure. It was burned to the ground by 10 a.m. Photo by Jim Bradshaw

Pictured left to right are: Becky Lamm, Captain, Krewe de les Dames; Bart Wild, Duke of Las Vegas Boulevard; Larry Lawson and Wanda Benoit, Duke and Maid of Broadway; David Wilson and Kasey Patin, Duke and Maid of Michigan Avenue; Queen Laurie Suire and Elliot Dore, King Cimmer LV; Alecia Bergeaux and Dr. Dale Leleux, Duke and Maid of Bourbon Street; Renee Nugier and Chad Monceaux, Duke and Maid of Hollywood Boulevard and Claire Kelbaugh and Peter John, Duke and Maid of Ocean Drive.
