Creditors can proceed with trying to collect more than $60,000 from Brennan’s Inc., the company that until this summer operated the Royal Street restaurant of the same name, a judge has ruled.
Thursday’s ruling by Judge Jerry A. Brown affirmed the involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition filed by four companies that say they have not been paid since the restaurant closed in June.
The court has appointed Ronald J. Hof as interim trustee to oversee the liquidation of the firm’s assets and their distribution to creditors.
Dodie Powers was busy stacking up potholders, trying not to lose track of the count.
“Let’s see. I have three of one kind and three of another, so that means I get one free,” she said, citing the policy at Tracy Thomson’s booth at the Palmer Park Arts Market. “I need to pick one for me.”
Emblazoned with the names of New Orleans neighborhoods and made of colorful cloth, the pot holders do more than their fair share to help create the cheerful atmosphere at the event.
Rock stars are in short supply these days. Admittedly, living life on the grand scale of a Mick Jagger or Keith Richards in their heyday is hard work, but epic self-indulgence give music its mythic scope. Thankfully, Kanye West seems ready, willing and able to be larger than life.
Thursday night at the New Orleans Arena, that was clear in a show that included an Alp, a yeti, a faceless choir that engaged in synchronized rotating and held lit flares on the Alp, and Jesus, who emerged from a fissure in the Alp.
The time is rapidly ticking away until bowl bids are announced Sunday night, but for the LSU Tigers the variables and possibilities seem to keep expanding rather than becoming more defined.
Who’s running this show, The Riddler?
After wrapping up the regular season with a victory over Arkansas on Nov. 29, LSU seemed a virtual lock for the Cotton Bowl.
Not so fast, cowboy. The Cotton remains a distinct possibility for the 9-3 Tigers, but no longer more likely than a trip to the Outback Bowl.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Glenn Dorsey quickly emerged as a stabilizing force in the middle of San Francisco’s dominant defensive line.
An emergency fill-in at first, Dorsey has made significant strides each week that tell him and his 49ers coaches he is becoming comfortable with the defensive scheme and his technique in San Francisco’s system.
For a sixth-year veteran who arrived uncertain of landing a starting job, the former East Ascension High School and LSU standout worked quietly until called upon to assume a larger role.
After ranking among the league leaders in takeaways after seven games, the New Orleans Saints’ defense is fighting through a bit of a drought going into Sunday night’s key NFC South matchup with the Carolina Panthers.
Through seven games, when they had a 6-1 record following a 35-17 blowout of the Buffalo Bills, the Saints had 15 takeaways — nine interceptions and one fumble recovery.
