The following sites will be open Sunday, September 9 beginning at 8 a.m. and will serve individuals with the last names that begin with the letters S-Z. Sites will close when it is determined that the number of people who can be served by 6 p.m. are already at the facility.

***Please note that DSNAP sites in Plaquemines, St. Bernard and St. John parishes will be closed on Sunday because they are located at churches. They will re-open on Monday and serve individuals with the last names that begin with the letters S-Z.

The First Baptist Church in St. Tammany will be closed on Sunday as well. Residents can visit the DSNAP site at John Slidell Park in Slidell on Sunday to process applications. On Monday, the First Baptist Church facility will reopen and will see all applicants from that parish who have been previously unable to visit a site.

Individuals, to date, have been able to visit any of the sites in the nine parish area to apply. Beginning Monday, when most facilities will serve all applicants who have previously been unable to visit a site, applicants will need to only visit the site in their parish.

To help expedite the application process, individuals can pre-apply for Hurricane Isaac DSNAP through Tuesday either online at www.dcfs.la.gov/preapply or www.getagameplan.org or by calling 1-888-LAHELP-U (888-524-3578) 24 hours a day. When applying by phone, callers should select the appropriate language and then select options 3 and 3.

DSNAP is an income eligibility based program to assist eligible households who do not receive regular SNAP benefits and who need help buying groceries due to lost income or damages following a disaster. Eligibility are determined by federal guidelines and are based on an individual's known or expected income, resources (such as cash on hand, saving and checking account balances) and unreimbursed disaster expenses during the disaster period of August 26 and September 24. For more information on income guidelines visit www.dcfs.la.gov or call 211.

Applicants knowingly providing inaccurate or incomplete information, as part of a DSNAP application, could face criminal prosecution and disqualification of benefits. DCFS will investigate suspected fraud and aggressively pursue recoupment and possibly prosecution.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
