08/15 - Louisiana Post-Katrina: A Decade of Difference

What difference has a decade made?

Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina swept through Southeast Louisiana, triggering what would become the nation’s costliest disaster. Less than a month later, Hurricane Rita inundated Southwest Louisiana forever altering the landscape. The storms uprooted residents, while the rest of Louisiana and its neighboring states welcomed them with open arms.

What affect did the storms have on economic development along the I-10 corridor? A decade later, how have public services changed? How prepared is Louisiana to handle hurricane evacuees and how did the hurricanes change the demographics of the state?

This month Louisiana Public Square takes a look at where the state is now on “Louisiana Post-Katrina: A Decade of Difference” airing Wednesday, August 26 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD. (Taping Tuesday, August 25.)

The panelists are:
• Andy Kopplin, Office of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu
• Paul Rainwater, Rainwater Consulting, LLC
• Stephanie Riegel, Greater Baton Rouge Business Report
• Nihal Shrinath, The Data Center

The program includes interviews with Jason El Koubi, One Acadiana; Chris Guilbeaux, Governor’s Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP); Kathy Kliebert, Secretary of the Department of Health and Hospitals; Allison Plyer, Executive Director of the Data Center; John White, State Superintendent of Education; and Christopher Bohnstengel and “Byrdie” Lane, owners of Byrdie’s Gallery and Café in New Orleans.

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney, and Dr. Kim Hunter Reed moderate the discussion.

Not enough in the inner city. Stop too many blighted houses,too many streets needed to be repaired. The City needs to go after the owners of the properties,raise them then demand reimbursement even if having to file suit and garnish there wages. City officials need to respond to complaints of neighbors complains remain ignored.  I see no reason to commemorate the 10 year anniversary. Tired of traveling to another parish to shop.

     06/18 - Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?  (ENCORE)

Is Louisiana a Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?
For decades Louisiana has proclaimed itself as the “Sportsman’s Paradise.” But for today’s hunters, changes to Louisiana’s landscape have caused a decline in the quality of the state’s deer habitat and smaller game. For coastal fishermen, private property rights often unduly restrict access to waters that are considered public in any other state.
