Reengineering the wheel

The 1953 motion picture The Wild One starring Marlon Brando inspired a generation of Americans to embrace the motorcycle culture, and this movie became a cultural icon.

For the Rotary Club’s meeting this week, the club heard from Jeffrey Sylvester (center), who was the guest of Rotarian John Mayeux (right). Sylvester spoke about issues facing rice farmers and the boom of the crawfish industry. They are pictured here with Rotary President Wayne Vidrine (left). (Gazette photo by Tony Marks)
