Payton: Saints’ run game not in ‘crisis’

in

METAIRIE (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton said it’s too early to judge New Orleans’ last-ranked running game.
New Orleans managed only 43 yards rushing on 13 attempts in a Week 1 loss to Tampa Bay, but Payton said that was more about the nature of a game because the Saints had to lean on the pass after falling behind.

DEAR ABBY

Jealous girlfriend threatens brother-and-sister relationship
phillips_jeanne.jpg

DEAR ABBY: My brother and his girlfriend live together. One day I heard his ex-girlfriend had passed away suddenly, so I told him because I thought he should know. Well. His girlfriend messaged me and told me to mind my own business and stay away from my brother. She’s very jealous, and she lets it show. They aren’t engaged or married.
What was wrong with my telling him before he read it in the news? Other people have told me I didn’t do anything wrong. My boyfriend said the same thing. She has now threatened my relationship with them.
JUST LETTING HIM KNOW

New exhibition celebrates Winnie-the-Pooh

BOSTON (AP) — When people care too much, Winnie-the-Pooh argues it’s just love.
That bit of time-tested wisdom is as relevant today as it was nearly a century ago, when the beloved teddy bear and main character in A.A. Milne’s children’s books series first appeared in print.
Now Pooh and pal Christopher Robin are starring in “Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic,” a new exhibition opening Saturday at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.

If autumn is, in the words of William Cullen Bryant, “the year’s last, loveliest smile,” then that smile becomes a great, beautiful, community-wide grin with the arrival of the Pumpkin Patch for DART at Townsend House Gifts. For the 14th year in a row, an enthusiastic crowd of volunteers is scheduled to arrive at the historic gift shop, ready to unload an 18-wheel truck filled with pumpkins. This year, the pumpkins are set to arrive on at 3 p.m. Sept. 29 from the Navajo Indian Reservation in New Mexico where they are grown.

GOP warns time running out for Kavanaugh’s accuser to talk

in

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans are warning that time is running out for Brett Kavanaugh's accuser to tell Congress about her claim he sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers, even as President Donald Trump called the woman's allegation hard to believe in one of the GOP's sharpest attacks on her credibility.
With Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination dangling in the balance, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said his panel still planned a Monday morning hearing that Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford were invited to attend.

Getting through the long hot summer in the area

in

The old saying, “put the right plant in the right place” is more often said than applied. Putting it there at the right time of the year is equally important. This rule is generally ignored.

Amaya, Derek.jpg

Eight years ago last month, I arrived in Ruston a young New Orleans man starving to tap into the world of higher education and reach beyond my potential of knowledge.
My new surroundings rocked me to the core from a culture standpoint. I might as well have been on a different planet.
However, a coworker of mine for the Louisiana Tech University football team once said, “Ruston may be different than a lot of places, but you have to find it’s hidden gems. And trust me, they’re there.” She was right.
