New Orleans’ residents still need our help

A year later, much of the area devastated by Katrina remains much as it did in the days following the storm: automobiles are still under homes or stacked in piles where the flood waters left them; houses are still knocked off of their foundations, watermarks above head level showing the height of the misery felt by residents of New Orleans’ lower Ninth Ward and other low-lying areas along the coast; holes are still visible in the roofs of homes where people cut their way to safety as they fled the flood.

“We’re taking steps in the right direction. Maybe they’re not gargantuan steps, but they’re definitely making progress and I feel good about where we are going into the opening game.”
As well as the fifth-year leader of the Class A Louisiana High School Athletic Association program should.
Just as they did against the Kittens, the Creek slammed a quick knockdown punch on the Gators.

Runners turn out to raise money for cancer society

Adam Carlisle, 15, of Shreveport, finished first with a time of 18 minutes, 44 seconds in the 5K that wound through Squire Creek. He found out about the race through Butler, who was his cross country track coach at C.E. Byrd High School.

Overall, Laird liked what he witnessed in the two-hour scrimmage that served as a major evaluation tool for the ‘Cats since fall training camp began and prior to next weekend’s “Bayou Jamb” date with I-20 rival West Monroe High at Monroe’s Malone Stadium.
