Today, Governor John Bel Edwards welcomed Vice President Mike Pence to Louisiana as he Veep is attending a event with top Louisianqa Republican officials. Along with the welcome, however, is a wishlist of requests including an item of recent vinctage involving the current Trump budget which tears a hole into the funding for the Louisiana coastal restoration.
The Russian-Trump investigation proceeds despite the objections, complaints, delays, obstacles and some believe, the obstructions being imposed upon the process.
Special counsel, independent counsel, Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller, fake news--Like the old baseball scorecard adage, you can't watch a Washington DC scandal unless you know the players (and the terminology).
Last Stand for Monument?
The Citizens Advisory Committee, charged with making a recommendation about the future of the Confederate monument on the courthouse grounds, will hold its fourth and final public meeting Tuesday.
It will be held at 6 p.m. at Broadmoor Middle Laboratory School, 441 Atlantic Avenue, Shreveport.
The past few weeks have been an emotional roller-coaster ride for many in Louisiana and particularly those living in the New Orleans area. Confederate monuments have been removed, courtesy of New Orleans Mitch Landrieu and the city council.
It is rather fitting that a distasteful party was planned to mark the end of a very disturbing period in New Orleans history. Today, masked city workers removed the statue of General Robert. E. Lee, the fourth monument labeled a “nuisance” by the New Orleans City Council. It is the most prominent monument on New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s hit list. This impressive and priceless monument has been in place for 133 years in the middle of a circle, also named after Lee.
Want to connect with government projects? Looking for government contracts? Want to work with larger companies here in Louisiana?
If so, perhaps this might be the opportunity you've been seeking:
With tax dollars scarce in Louisiana, this should be the time to discuss streamlining on the state and local levels. Just how many boards, commissions, water districts, sewer districts, parish auditors, law enforcement offices, and other special districts are spread throughout Louisiana? Some estimates are as high as 7,000. No one really seems to know. Would you believe that no agency, public or private, can list all the public bodies that exist in Louisiana today? And if no one knows that number, then it goes without saying that no one can even begin to know the overlapping costs.
Did New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and the City of New Orleans err when it took down the statue of P.G.T. Beauregard last night?

The Saints went into this offseason with one goal: To improve a porous and often humiliating defense. Have they achieved their goal? Barring any 11th hour acquisitions, the unqualified answer at this point is, well, uh, maybe!
