Oil and Gas Industry Update, Art Rocks! Profiles Shreveport Artist Rachel Stuart-Haas, Siege of Port Hudson Remembered

Industry Update The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics released its latest employment numbers this week. Lafayette had the largest job loss in the state in 2016 with losing 9000 jobs. Houma lost roughly 6000 jobs last year. Layoffs in the oil and gas industry are largely to blame in these two regions. Ken Stickney, Oil and Gas Reporter with the Lafayette Advertiser is in the studio to discuss the current state of Louisiana’s oil and gas industry and what the future holds. SHARE

Shreveport Artist Rachel Stuart-Haas This north Louisiana resident focuses her time and energy on producing one of a kind paintings that feature females as seen through Stuart-Haas’s introspective vision. See more stories of Louisiana artists every week on LPB’s Art Rocks! program with host and publisher of Country Roads Magazine James Fox-Smith, Fridays at 8:30pm and Saturdays at 5:30pm. SHARE

Siege of Port Hudson Remembered We are nearing the 154th anniversary of the Siege of Port Hudson. It marks the turning point of the Civil War and the Union's final engagement with the Confederates to recapture the Mississippi River. Confederate batteries just north of Baton Rouge fired down on Union gunboats in the siege that lasted 48 days. Port Hudson Curator Michael Fraering offers insight and information on the upcoming Battle of Port Hudson Reenactment March 25-26 at the Port Hudson State Historic Site. SHARE
