turkey carving photo 1.tif

East Baton Rouge Parish coroner William “Beau” Clark, above, accepts the plaque he won after winning first place in the 10th annual turkey carving contest at St. Vincent de Paul Society. Clark beat out such luminaries as EBR district attorney Hillar Moore III, Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center missions director Coletta Barrett and even Southern football coach Dawson Odoms, whose Jaguars would carve out a close victory 72 hours later in the Bayou Classic in New Orleans.¬†¬†Photos by Richard Meek | The Catholic Commentator¬†
