Too costly and too late: A Louisiana nonprofit hoping to save a 1900s cemetery sinking into the bayou has had to abandon its plans.
"A nonprofit group has given up its proposal to protect the little that remains of a nearly submerged cemetery in Leeville. Launch Leeville wanted to build a 280-foot-long bulkhead between what's left of Lefort Cemetery and the intersection of Bayou Lafourche and the Southeast Canal. The nonprofit dropped its permit applications after the local coastal zone management board asked the state to put that application on hold, founder Janet Rhodus told The Daily Comet." -- KATC.com
