Energy’s Environmental Footprint


Does environmental protection and energy needs co-exist in Louisiana well? It’s this month’s topic on Louisiana Public Square. A current lawsuit contends that the actions of 97 oil and gas companies have damaged Louisiana’s wetlands and threatens flood protection. Industry leaders say its practices were legal at the time and a surge in lawsuits is driving investors away from Louisiana.



Pioneering Black Nurses


As we recognize Black History Month, Shauna Sanford takes a look back at the pioneering women who were some of the first Black nurses in Louisiana. The first black nurses who worked at the Baton Rouge General Hospital worked tirelessly to take care of their patients and break the color barrier. All Black nurses and patients were relegated to one unit called “Four South.”



Smoking Cessation Trust


If you want to quit smoking but had little success, you may be in luck. A program being offered by the Smoking Cessation Trust is free to thousands of Louisiana smokers. SCT Executive Director Mike Rogers says it’s one of the state’s best kept secrets around and is getting the word out.
