AMERICAN PICKERS To Film In Louisiana

Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to Louisiana! 

They plan to film episodes of the hit series AMERICAN PICKERS throughout the region this winter. AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them. As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way. Mike and Frank have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before. They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them. AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore your hidden treasure. If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send us your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855-old-rust.

Entergy Customer Service Representative Eunice Harris presents Amite City Mayor Buddy Bel with a $2000 check for a fence renovation project at Coach Catha Park.
 
Catha Park is undergoing continuous upgrades because it is becoming the central location for farmers’ markets, outdoor concerts, and public picnics, to name a few benefits.
 
“Community development is always a part of Entergy’s mission to enhance the communities it serves.  By making parks more inviting to Entergy customers and to town visitors, people will definitely visit it”, says Eunice Harris, Entergy Customer Service Representative. “A functional park invites people to get out of the house, get physical, network with business owners, and be a part of community growth. Parks should aid in good health and positive spirits, and it also fuels the local economy.  And Entergy wants to be front center in making these things happen in Amite City”, continues Harris.

The Amite Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate The Red Scissor Salon & Day Spa for being selected as December’s Branch Award winner. It is businesses like The Red Scissor that have helped shape and prosper our flourishing community.

 

The Red Scissor Salon & Day Spa opened its doors to our community in September of 2014 with 5 employees.  The Red Scissor was originally supposed to be named Twisted Scissors; however, when applying for the proper tax identification, it was discovered that the name Twisted Scissors had already been taken.  This unexpected news lead to a brainstorming session amongst friends, hence the birth of The Red Scissor Salon & Day Spa.

A WORD FROM THE WINNER…The Red Scissor Salon & Day Spa is a full service salon with a combined experience of almost 75 years.  We offer a wide variety of hair services, manicures, pedicures and massage therapy.  Our stylists range in age from 20s to 50s, so we have someone to fit everyone’s needs perfectly.  Since we have opened our doors, the support from our community has been something I never could have imagined and I will forever be grateful to our wonderful town and all of our loyal clients.
