Wednesday was another eventful day at Patterson High School.

World Geography: Octopus is a traditional delicacy in South Korea. Alex Kyle went beyond the required research for this country and brought the treat for the class to experience.
Saturday, March 9, was the third and final tournament for the Louisiana B.A.S.S. High School Trail East division. Hunter Pinho and Jake Childress placed 3rd out of 157 teams with only 63 teams bringing fish to the scale. They had a five fish limit weighing in at 10.53. They launched from Doiron's in Stephensville and had to trailer to Lamar Dixon for official weigh-in. This 3rd place finish jumped them in the final standings for the East division. They finished 13th out of 210 teams. Also shown is Boat Captain Hal Pinho.
Patterson K.C. Council 1710 donated $1000 from the Brittany Guidry Memorial Fund to Patterson High School. The Council holds a yearly golf tournament to generate funds to help children in St. Mary Parish. The tournament will be held in April. The fund was established in 2000. Brittany died at 12 years old in Kemper Williams Park while batting at home plate in softball. Her jersey was retired and a picture is displayed at the Patterson Area Civic Center.

In her article Make It a Scam-Free Vacation, Lisa Lake from the Federal Trade Commission offers steps to prevent your dream vacation from becoming a nightmare.
First: Do your homework.
In addition to getting recommendations from family and friends, do some online research on travel companies, hotels and agents with the words scam, review, or complaint.
Consider extra costs. Resort fees and taxes can add $50 or more to a nightly hotel cost.
Before you book, read the cancellation and refund policies for any destination.
Only buy travel insurance from a licensed agent.
Bring a copy of the trip confirmation details, including the rate and extras you were promised.
Second: Be travel smart.
Don't pay for "prize" vacations. No real company will ask you to pay for a prize--and be careful about booking with a resort or timeshare offer, which may include the need to pay taxes or fees, plus high-pressure sales pitches.
Don't sign anything until you know what you are getting.
Use a credit card, which gives you more protection than paying with cash or a debit card.
Third: Protect your identity.
Take only the IDs and credit/debit cards you really need. Also, make copies of these, too, and carry the copies in a separate location so that you can more easily report lost or stolen cards.
Bring a copy of your insurance card.
Don't assume a Wi-Fi hotspot in a hotel, restaurant, or airport is secure. Avoid using mobile apps that require personal or financial information or use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service.
