Progress seems to be happening everywhere lately in Southwest Louisiana with new businesses and strip malls popping up.

Today a landmark in Sulphur is being leveled to make way for a new fast food restaurant.

The old LaFluers Roller Rink on Ruth Street in Sulphur is currently being torn down.  The Sulphur landmark has been at that location for as long as I can remember so lets say at least 40 years but i am probably way off.

The old roller rink was at one time a hot spot in Sulphur where everyone went to have some fun on a Friday or Saturday nights.

Replacing LaFluers is a brand new Kentucky Fried Chicken store.  It is unknown when the store will be finished.

But I am sad to see that another old landmark in Southwest Louisiana go.
