By JANET McCONNAUGHEY, Associated Press Writer Wed Jul 16, 7:39 PM ET NEW ORLEANS - The first archaeological dig at one of the nation's oldest cathedrals has turned up a mix of new finds in the heart of the French Quarter. Discoveries behind St. Louis Cathedral include a small silver crucifix from the 1770s or 1780s and traces of previously unknown buildings dating back to around the city's founding in 1718. The crucifix might have belonged to Pere Antoine, a Capuchin monk who was rector of the cathedral which dominates Jackson Square, lead archaeologist Shannon Lee Dawdy t
  2. Last-minute deal lets Sonics move to Oklahoma City By TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer 1 hour, 52 minutes ago (AP)—Clay Bennett finally found a dollar amount that would sever his contentious relationship with the city of Seattle—$75 million. As a result, the SuperSonics are headed to Oklahoma City with Bennett leading the way, leaving behind the team name, colors and 41 years of history. Oklahoma City will have an NBA franchise for the 2008-09 season after a settlement announced Wednesday between the team and the city of Seattle, ending the clashing bond with the city that culmi
  3. NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (AP) -- A man fatally shot by police after a 10-hour standoff Wednesday had suffered with mental illness for much of his life, and it worsened in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a family member said. Eric Minshew, 49, ordered Federal Emergency Management Agency workers to leave his trailer when they arrived for an inspection Tuesday afternoon, according to accounts from police. Later, police said he fired at them several times and was fatally shot after pointing a handgun at officers who tried to arrest him. No officers were injured. Rosemarie Broc

  6. I really don't see how Ray Nagin thinks he's going to run and win at being Governor of NO.
  7. Yeah, time has gone by fast. It's a damned shame that they now have over 12,000 homeless people in NO - twice of what they had before, and rental rates have gone up 30% since Katrina.
  8. By ALLEN G. BREED and CAIN BURDEAU, Associated Press Writers Sat Aug 25, 2:48 PM ET NEW ORLEANS - Two years after Hurricane Katrina, much of the "city that care forgot" still lies in ruins. But Otis Biggs' task as he shuffles his Tarot deck this moist August day is to peer into the future to 2015, the storm's 10th anniversary. Rings of silver and turquoise flash as one card, then another flops onto a zodiac-patterned table in the incense-perfumed Bottom of the Cup Tea Room in the French Quarter, where the diminutive Biggs has been telling fortunes for 32 years. An upsi
  9. Thursday, August 02, 2007 NEW ORLEANS — Hurricane Katrina victims whose homes and businesses were destroyed when floodwaters breached levees in the 2005 storm cannot recover money from their insurance companies for the damages, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday. The case could affect thousands of rebuilding residents and business owners in Louisiana. Robert Hartwig, chief economist at the industry-funded Insurance Information Institute in New York, said in June that a ruling against the industry could have cost insurers $1 billion. "This event was excluded from coverage un

Let me break this down for you dummy, Google Maps are outdated, there not current. I hope you dont think its Real Time, Your not going to be able to stand outside, then see your ass in your front yard.

  14. By CAIN BURDEAU, Associated Press Writer 12 minutes ago NEW ORLEANS - The Army Corps of Engineers, rushing to meet President Bush's promise to protect New Orleans by the start of the 2006 hurricane season, installed defective flood-control pumps last year despite warnings from its own expert that the equipment would fail during a storm, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The 2006 hurricane season turned out to be mild, and the new pumps were never pressed into action. But the Corps and the politically connected manufacturer of the equipment are

By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN, Associated Press Writer 31 minutes ago State Farm Insurance Cos. is suspending sales of any new commercial or homeowner policies in Mississippi effective Friday, citing in part a wave of litigation it has faced after Hurricane Katrina, a company official said Wednesday. Mike Fernandez, vice president of public affairs for State Farm, said Mississippi's "current legal and political environment is simply untenable.

  18. Have they done anything to the levees other than patching it up with all those sandbags?
  19. If so, how much progress, although little may it be, has been made in the 9th Ward and what percentage of it do you estimate has been taken up by business and gentrification?
  20. and you'll NEEEEVER get a REAL one. there were more than 1500 dead people in orleans parish alone. :OK!:
  21. Life goes on...it's not news anymore so a lot of unaffected people have lost interest... I can never forget those images of our people being left to die while the govt. played politics. It really shows how Ice Cold our govt. is. I didn't even feel right eating anything more than a small sandwich. I couldn't complain about a damned thing. Hell, I couldn't even think straight half the time. So many of us out there left to die, and the government treated them worse than immigrants.
