When I moved here in July of 2001. There is one thing that has been consistent. That is the great food in Lake Charles, the wonderful people here. And finally Mayor Randy Roach has been in office. He is what I call the people's mayor. There has not been one time that I have reached out to Mayor Randy Roach's office as he has been available.

Well last month Lake Charles elected a new man to take over that position and fill some pretty big shoes. That new man is Nic Hunter, but since he won't be taking office until July. Our current Mayor Randy Roach is still in the community as he always has been. Today was the annual Nami Walk held at the Lake Charles Civic Center. This was special to have him there and although it was only for a short time. He gave a rousing words of encouragement to those in attendance. The words resonated with me and many who actually wished that he could continue in his current reign of the Mayor's office. I became familiar with Nami through a mutual friend of mine and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I had a cousin who was Mentally challenged, but he was one of the best people that you could meet.

He was my cousin and I loved that man with all of my heart. Today was the walk that brought alot of the members of the city out. They all came to walk in an effort to find out more about Nami. I would like to thank everyone who was able to attend, donate or spread the word about the walk today. There was also plenty of great music play by local bands and fun jumps for the kids. Check out some great photos from the event today.
