Page 2B of today's Acadiana edition of the Advocate (the story is not online) carries a story that interviews Kathleen Blanco on Lafayette's fiber-optic project and overviews the bond issue to come before the council this Tuesday.
In the article, Blanco says "it will place the city in an incredibly important place to have an infrastructure that sophisticated," and that the "community itself needs to make that decision." It's nice to know that the governor continues to support the project and Lafayette's right to self-determination, especially in light of legislative ally Broome's anti-LUS bill in the Senate (Broome was a floor leader for Blanco when she was in the house).
Because I had the scanner all set up for a Tax-Day project (of which no more need be said--harrumph), you get a quick jpeg image of the story. Enjoy!
