BOSSIER CITY — The New Orleans Pelicans traveled to north Louisiana for their final preseason game against the Dallas Mavericks and came away with another win, their fourth straight, 88-85.

Tammany candidate got tax break
Thursday, 23 October 2014 22:16
Roy Burns, one of four candidates running for St. Tammany Parish district attorney, likely saved thousands of dollars in property taxes by having homestead exemptions on two properties at once for more than a decade, an arrangement that Burns said was a mistake he eventually noticed himself and corrected several years ago.

A new message hung from players’ lockers when the New Orleans Saints showed up to practice Thursday — a reminder, perhaps. It was a motivational cartoon depicting two men in dress shirts and ties carrying pickaxes in separate tunnels. The one on the bottom was slouched over with a glum expression on his face, holding his pickax over his right shoulder, and walking away from a thin barrier of mud separating him from a trove…
