    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After

    in Writing

    We are restarting our blog-radio show, "Heroes of Katrina."  Several years ago, we hosted the show under the generous support of Bonnie Kaye ("Books of Excellence"), who provided support for our efforts.


    We are now restarting the show under a thematic of "Ten Years After."  What are the heroes written about in the book, "Katrina:  A Freight Train Screamin'" doing now?  How have their lives changed.  What is new and interesting for them?


    All these questions are important, as Katrina changed many lives in many ways...As always we provide this show to exhibit a perspective of the resiliency of the human spirit.


    As the winds of Katrina blew, lives were changed.  People did what they had to do...and their stories reflect the power of human and perseverance and spirit.


    What better than ten years later do we explore lives affected and re-equlibrated and re-reflected.


    Please join us for an inspirational and reflective discussion on the human spirit as reflected by the changes of lives.

    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After- Rev Lura Lisa...The Spirituality of Katrina

    in Books

    The entire premise of our show is based upon where all are now after the train wreck of Katrina...10 years ago.   Many have experienced the miracles of destiny....bringing them to new spaces not even imagined before the storm.  Lives have changed...Circumstances have changed and, in the end, we are faced with a different world to which we may have gained comfort within...only to be torn asunder by the game-changer: Hurricane Katrina!


    Life hits us with circumstances that sometimes seem insurmountable.  When a catastrophe, like Hurricane Katrina, comes and inserts herself into the very essence of our being responding to such is naturally traumatic and devastating.  However, in the end, at least from my experience, all things happen for a reason....and the divinity that has created us as human beings allows us opportunities for growth through such times.


    This radio blog show has always been mostly about the good stuff that has changed human lives as a result of the storm.  Tonight, we will talk about how calamity in our lives can transform us to heights that, perhaps, we never would have imagined otherwise.


    Lura Lisa, a spiritual leader for Unity Association of Churches will join us this evening to give her perspective on the storm as well as to provide inspirational guidance to those folks who have suffered turmoil, PTSD, or other negatives associated with the storm.


    This show will be inspirational to all who have experienced the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.....whether for better and/or worse.  Or frankly the upsets that ocurr in human lives...It doesn't have to be a storm...We all have things that happen outside of ourselves that impact us...Let look at this wit open eyes and open hearts...


    Wishing all well...and bidding you Namaste in your lives...

    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After- Caroline Travis, Illustrator

    in Books

    Please join us as our very talented, interesting, amazing and inspirational guest, Caroline Degler Travis, shares her Hurricane Katrina story and where she is ten years after. Caroline will tell the story from the perspective of a Baton Rouge vicinity resident....a first in the history of our radio blog show.


    Caroline was born in 1953 to Ruth and Rolland Degler in Oregon City, Oregon. She moved to Louisiana at 5 yrs of age, married right after high school and had three children within six yrs of marriage. Caroline married Jerry Travis with whom she has one child.


    Caroline, a former nurse, and current artist and painter, provided the illustrations for the children's book, "French Quarter Tori and the Red Owl" (by Cary and Gretchen Black).  A book about the value and specialness of friendship through hard times and great moral and geographic lesson for children of all ages.


    Caroline says, "I feel I have accomplished my dreams but there is still more in store for me. I have become an artist after my retirement although I knew throughout my life this talent was always there. I just never put it into action. I have recently bought a pottery wheel. This will be my next accomplishment. I will make pottery!! I am trying to pass some of my talents down to my grandchildren. My oldest grandson loves art also. I love spending time with my grandkids.


    Please join us for an inspirational discussion with Caroline

    Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After: Vincent's...a Survivors Story of Success

    in Books

        Vincent’s Italian Cuisine was founded in 1989 by native New Orleanian Vincent Catalanotto.  From a large, close Sicilian family, Vincent grew up eating wonderful food prepared by his parents who were both great cooks.  Vincent learned to love and appreciate food at an early age, and then spent most of his life working in the service industry, fueling his passion for the restaurant business while allowing him to hone his innate ability to create fabulous meals and to make people happy.


    Vincent opened the first of his successful neighborhood restaurants in 1989.  The “little Italian place on the side street” quickly became Metairie’s hidden jewel.  Vincent developed a menu that showcases the finest and freshest ingredients available (in fact, there are no walk-in coolers or freezers at Vincent’s - produce, seafood, meats and cheeses are delivered fresh daily!)


    Vincent opened a new restaurant in 1997 on St. Charles Avenue near the Riverbend, much to the delight of the Uptown community, which has since embraced Vincent’s Italian Cuisine as their favorite neighborhood restaurant.


        The Vincent’s restaurants endured the ravages of Katrina and bounced back in excellence.  Today they are considered the best Italian restaurants in New Orleans…and some claim the best Italian restaurants in the country.  We love the abiance and hospitality.


        Gretchen and I have discovered Vincent’s and it has become a home away from home…Vincent greets us by name, and takes care of us as if we were part of the family…We enjoy the hospitality at minimum, on biweekly basis.
