It is a wet day on the West Side, but schools are business as usual today. West Baton Rouge has a lot to celebrate in this week’s news cycle.

Lit Pizza, known for handcrafted blast fired pizzas, announced it will open a new location in Brusly. It will be next door to Walk-Ons in the former Caffe Maison, which closed its doors late last month.

The Addis Police Department also announced it will add a motorcycle patrolman and K-9 unit to its force this year. Chris Graves, an Addis Police Officer, will become the first Addis Motorcycle Patrolman upon completing certification. A four-legged officer is expected to begin assisting with drug arrests by the fall.

Ta’la Spates, a Brusly High track star headed to the University of Louisiana Lafayette this fall, earned her 13th state championship title during the state meet last week. It was an emotional time for Spates, who is following in her mother’s footsteps as a collegiate track star. You can read more about her journey by clicking here.

Addis Live at Five is canceled this evening due to weather, but Jazz on the Lawn at the West Baton Rouge Museum is still on as of this morning. Check our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates on events happening this weekend like the First Annual Autism Awareness Walk.
