2016 Floods Devastate LA Agriculture • Chasing the American Dream in Louisiana • 2016 Louisiana Young Heroes

2016 Floods Devastate LA Agriculture The LSU AgCenter reports agriculture losses from the March and August floods totaled nearly $367 million dollars. One Caddo Parish rancher says it could be a knockout punch to a lot of people. U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham plans to use the report to justify adding $400 million in agriculture specific aid to a $2.8 billion relief package the Louisiana delegation and Governor John Bel Edwards are seeking to push through Congress this week.

Chasing the American Dream in Louisiana Louisiana has been through a lot in the last year – a contentious governor’s race, three legislative sessions, racial unrest and extreme weather. In a three-part series LPB’s Kelly Spires turned to the writings of 19th century French historian Alexis de Tocqueville to better understand the status of equality, community and the American Dream in Louisiana. Spires talks with Baton Rouge area residents about their experiences with the recent floods and looked into what Tocqueville wrote about how civic society can overcome some of the ills of democracy.

2016 Louisiana Young Heroes For over two decades, LPB has honored students in grades 7-12 who have excelled in the classroom, served their community and/or shown great courage in overcoming adversity in their own lives. Over the next several weeks LPB will showcase the 2016 Louisiana Young Heroes award winners from this past spring. This week we celebrate a pair of outstanding students from the Lake Charles area, including Dylan Alvarez, recent graduate of Sulphur HS, and Sam Houston HS junior Alex Bauer. The nomination process for the 2017 Young Heroes is underway. For more information go to http://www.lpb.org/index.php/heroes/. SHARE
