Lafayette artist's ornament to hang in White House

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A Christmas ornament designed by Lafayette artist Tony Bernard will serve as Louisiana's official ornament for the White House tree.

Bernard and students at Copper Mill Elementary School in Zachary decorated ornaments, along with Louisiana First Lady Supriya Jindal last week at the request of the National Park Service for showcasing on the 2011 National Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C., and on the "Louisiana" tree, which stands in the same area.

The Advertiser reports that one additional ornament was created for showcasing at the Louisiana Governor's Mansion. First Lady Supriya Jindal and Bernard chose Copper Mill for the project because its school district is ranked first in the state this year.

    By sunset this evening the temperatures will start to go down and rain will come to an end. Overnight we will be left with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. Rain chances are down to 20% overnight. On Monday will have rain chances go back down to 30%. The same upper level high pressure will be migrating back south closer to our area and will limit, but not quite eliminate, our rain chances. Rain chances are best in the afternoon.
