2016 Louisiana Floods, LSU Hires New Football Coach, Christmas Concert at Governor’s Mansion, Bonfires Along the Mississippi River

2016 Louisiana Floods Two major floods hit Louisiana in 2016. North Louisiana took heavy flooding in March, while the worst natural disaster since Superstorm Sandy hit much of south Louisiana in August. We share some of those flood stories that devastated residents including thousands of school children, teachers, and schools. SHARE

LSU Hires New Football Coach In September, LSU fired head football coach Les Miles and replaced him with interim head coach Ed Orgeron. The label “interim” was removed in November when he was officially named Head Coach of the Tigers. “Coach O” grew up in south Louisiana and his roots are deeply planted in his hometown of Larose. Back in the fall, Charlie Whinham headed to his hometown to talk with former teammates and friends from South Lafourche High School. SHARE

Christmas Concert at Governor’s Mansion This holiday season features a special performance of renowned singer/songwriter Zachary Richard featuring the Myrtle Place French Immersion Children’s Choir for a Christmas performance at the Governor’s Mansion. SHARE

Bonfires Along the Mississippi River One of the most unique Louisiana Christmastime traditions take place in St. James Parish for the annual Christmas Eve Bonfires along the Mississippi River. Photographer Rex Q. Fortenberry provides this video postcard for the holidays. SHARE
