Tornadoes Hit Louisiana


Powerful storms and at least nine confirmed tornadoes ripped through Louisiana on Tuesday. Some of the affected areas included Donaldsonville, Ponchatoula, Madisonville and New Orleans East. Dozens of injuries were reported, but fortunately there were no fatalities. Mike Steele with the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) offers the latest information on the Louisiana storms and gives a post-storm evaluation on the state’s response.



Special Session Preview


Louisiana lawmakers are coming back to Baton Rouge next week to balance the state’s budget. We’re a little more than halfway through this year’s budgeting period, and policymakers have realized the spending plan is another $300 million short. News about multi-million dollar shortfalls grew repetitive years ago. Kelly Spires spoke to the governor’s administration, the republican leader in the House, and a good government group to put the deficit into context.



Black History Month – Eddie G. Robinson Museum


In honor of Black History Month LPB showcases the Eddie G. Robinson Museum on the campus of Grambling State University. Coach Robinson led the Grambling State Tigers to 408 victories during his 56 year career that began in 1941. Thanks to the Friends of the Eddie G. Robinson Museum, a dream to build a museum in his honor became a reality in 2005. Charlie Whinham talks with two men key to creating the museum, former Grambling Baseball coaching legend Wilbert Ellis and Lincoln & Union Parish District Attorney John Belton. Find out more about the Eddie G. Robinson Museum at www.robinsonmuseum.com.
