Tinies kick up their heels for a good cause

by on Tuesday, June 13th, 2017


If you heard the patter of Tiny feet in New Toulouse on Saturday, you weren’t imagining it. The Tiny Social Aid and Pleasure Club held the seventh New Toulouse Tiny Dance in aid of Relay for Life. Those critters raised a staggering L$15,050 in the fight against cancer, and they had a great time doing it.

Mayor Henri Godenot and Miss RMarie Beedit were unable to attend but sent apologies together with generous donations. Among the Tinies present were Miss Eilidh McCullough, who started the ACTS team Tiny Dance tradition, team captain Olde Eldemar, who looked most dashing as a cavalier, and his co-captain and wife, Cassie Eldemar.

The DJ was once again Manfred “Owlbear” Hancroft with his “totally legit” tunes.

Our photographer was there capturing the scene as the cream of Tiny society strutted its stuff.

Want live rattlesnake?

by on Friday, May 26th, 2017

If you are in the market for a live rattlesnake, measuring almost six feet in length and with ten of the finest rattlers you ever saw, then you can get one if you hurry and write W. O. Thomas, of New Toulouse. He captured one as above described about seven miles from New Toulouse last Sunday and was trying to dispose of him here last week. Taloosters, however, did not appear to want to own the monster, due perhaps to the fact that while it was here it acted rather vicious. A large number of citizens took a look at the reptile.


Jack Mondieu is hoping he’s a figment of his own imagination.
