CAMERON, La. (AP) — Vacant slabs, weed-choked lots and solitary stairs to nowhere permeate this tiny town in southwest Louisiana. All that remains of the Klean-N-Kruise car wash is a rusted white sign overlooking an empty, overgrown lot. Residents travel 30 miles away for anything they can't get at the local gas station because there is no grocery store.
Nine people were shot and killed at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church in Charleston when a gunman opened fire during a June 17 Bible study session. The Charleston City Council unanimously approved Gregorie's recent resolution to rename two long blocks on Calhoun Street for the slain members of the congregation.
