*Pit bulls are legal again in Welsh.  Find out what led to the lifting of the pit bull ban in the town.

*There is no greater pain for a parent than the loss of a child.  It's been 23 years since a Sulphur mom buried her two-day-old son.  This morning Cindi Broussard Rust opens up about overcoming the grief, sadness and finding hope while remembering Spencer.
