Jesse Jackson for a “frank, honest and open conversation” about what’s happened at the university recently as well as the impact of failing to properly fund institutions of higher learning, especially historically black colleges and universities.
In true Peach Fest fashion, it’s time again to grab the flour, sugar, and, of course, the best peaches around because the 2014 Peach Cookery Contest is almost here.

The contestant who enters the best dish will receive a two-night stay at the Intercontinental Hotel in New Orleans, courtesy of Louisiana Life Magazine.
