Katrina tried to wash Louisiana away

katrina-leveeJust as most Americans remember where they were on 9/11, those of us living on the Gulf Coast remember the fear and concern that enveloped our region ten years ago this week. A lady named Katrina changed many of our lives.  In looking back, many Louisianans felt that maybe New Orleans really was a city that care forgot, and the whole Gulf Coast was thrown in for good measure. This human tragedy has haunted the Bayou State over the past decade as even today the rebuilding effort continues.

TORONTO (AP) - Swiss teen Belinda Bencic won the Rogers Cup on Sunday, following her upset of Serena Williams with a 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 3-0 victory over an ailing Simona Halep.

Halep was hampered by a left leg injury and heat exhaustion and stopped in the third set.

"I was thinking that I need a miracle to finish the match," Halep said. "I knew that I had no power, so I tried just to finish the match, but at 3-0 I said there is no sense to continue and I stopped.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Federal health officials have warned Louisiana and Alabama that they may be violating federal law by ending state Medicaid payments to Planned Parenthood.

Kevin Griffis, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, said Thursday that the federal Medicaid agency notified the states of the possible violation.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, running for president, announced on Aug. 3 that his administration was ending provider agreements that reimbursed Planned Parenthood for providing health services to low-income Medicaid patients.

This week, most of the western and northern portions of the country recorded below-normal temperatures while most of the south was above normal, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor and this week's author Brian Fuchs.

Active weather from the central plains into the Midwest brought above-normal precipitation over much of the region while the dryness intensified over the south and into the Gulf Coast.

About 43.9 % of the contiguous U.S. is in some form of drought or dryness currently, compared to 42.3% last week and 47.2% one year ago.

A Shreveport, Louisiana, police officer was shot and killed Wednesday night, police said.

The officer was responding to a call about a potential prowler at an area home. The suspect was initially believed to be in the home, armed and threatening to harm people, said police spokesman Marcus Hines.

A manhunt is underway for the suspect.

The officer’s death is the 20th this year at the hands of a violent suspect.

Over the weekend, a Memphis police officer was shot and killed during a regular traffic stop.
