This week, we introduce the "90-Second Spotlight," which we hope to make a regular feature on social media and our website, www.thepointecoupeebanner.com. We will spotlight officials from government, business, sports, faith-based community and other walks of life. We will focus on local officials, but we may occasionally feature segements with personalities from areas of the state or possibly national level. We hope you enjoy this feature. As with our print and online editions, we welcome any comments or suggestions. This week, we focus The Spotlight on incoming Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff Rene Thibodeaux, who officially takes office July 1.
