“Who dat!” is more of a lifestyle than a two-word sentence.
I was born to love two things, the New Orleans Saints and football.
Well, really I love every sport and have a favorite team in all the four major leagues, NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL, college and soccer. But growing up in Louisiana, it pretty much goes in order. Love God first, family second and football third.
But before the start of the 2002-03 NBA season, I fell in love with another team: the New Orleans Hornets. They were fresh off the moving truck from Charlotte, North Carolina.
What a week! Three days of cold temperatures with precipitation, not a good mix when it comes to ice forming on tree and shrub branches. Ice storms are a major concern to homeowners with landscape trees and little can be done about removing ice from plants. Plant selection and proper maintenance are two options which can minimize ice damage to trees.
In the early weeks leading up to the 2012 Legislative Session, state lawmakers were inundated with phone calls and correspondence regarding Gov. Jindal’s education reform initiative. But soon, legislators began hearing even stronger reactions regarding reforms being brought by the administration in an attempt to shore up funding for Louisiana’s retirement systems.
Currently, less than half of the state’s overall long-term retirement liabilities of $51.4 billion (pensions and healthcare) are funded.
One week before DART’s 14th Annual Radiothon finds me excited and hopeful. I am excited because this is going to be such a great radiothon.Bill Brown and the Q 94.1 FM radio staff are, as usual, on top of things to insure that we have a smooth broadcast. But of course, a radiothon also needs a location. Chris Turner and the staff of Super 1 Foods are offering their hospitality as well as their premium space for us, and we are so appreciative.
