SORT BY Relevancy
From the primary election to the runoff, early voting has increased 47 percent among black voters and 30 percent among white voters. Early voting has also jumped in a number of the larger urban areas -- Caddo/Shreveport (109 percent increase), Orleans (98 percent increase) and East Baton Rouge (88 percent) -- according to Couvillon. That would appear to be good news for state Rep. John Bel Edwards, the Democratic candidate for governor, rather than U.S. Sen. David Vitter, the Republican. Edwards has also been ahead in recent runoff polls. But experts and political operatives warned against drawing too many conclusions from preliminary early voting turnout. The runoff election is a different story. It's expected to be a close election, and Democrats have efforts underway to get people to participate in early voting. The Democratic Party says it has people in every parish working on early voting efforts. After the primary election, the Edwards campaign even said it expected voter turnout to be higher overall in the runoff.NOLA.com
Charlie Cook says;"this is a make or brake election for the Democratic party in Louisiana'".

Shattered Lives welcomes CUE Center for Missing Persons Louisiana State Outreach Coordinator Joe Cannon to discuss missing persons cases from his area. Many missing persons cases do not receive media attention beyond the local area. We will talk about those cases and offer known information in hopes of finding the key to their resolution.
So many times a disaster will happen and we watch, we talk, we listen, we mourn then we move on to the next disaster. August 29, 2005, we watched in horror as levees broke and men, women, children, families, the homeless and animals perished one after another leaving a total of close to 2000 dead. Katrina affected many lives and we can only image the hurt, lost and misplaced feelings of the thousands of people affected that day. The African-American Community was really affected by this disaster and to this day are affected with memories, lost and emotions that only they can feel. However, that community has proven to be a strong one with rebuilding, relocating and putting their lives in order. Do not get it wrong this ghost will follow them and will raise its ugly head from time to time but it will not define who they are and what they will become. The stories told are not for you to feel sorry for them but for you to understand the journey they had to take in order to be where they are today. Ten years later and the journey made individuals stronger and more determined than ever, to survive. Levilyn Chriss on October 28th, an independent producer out of Chicago of The Louisiana Project will join CWT4R. The Louisiana Project is a documentary that has given some New Orleanians an opportunity to look back and share their personal experiences surrounded by Hurricane Katrina. Levilyn and her family were also deeply affected by Katrina. On December 1, 2005, when residents were allowed to go into the Lower Ninth Ward, she went into her father's home and was overwhelmed by the stench and damages. While walking through her dad's neighborhood observing the devastation and hearing the cries of many and talking to some of the residents who had become homeless, jobless, and disconnected from normalcy, she realized they needed a voice.

Louisiana School Principal And Coach Don Racist Costumes
Iota Middle School Principal Lee Ann Wall and her husband Jeptha Wall, who is a coach at Crowley High School, appear in the image.
Their costumes are described as “People of Walmart.” Jeptha can be seen wearing a red bandana around his waist with a gun tucked into his belt and money coming out of his pocket.
In front of Lee Ann is a basket full of black and white baby dolls and sign that read, “You wait on pay day, I be waiting for da first of da month!”
The photo was sent to KLFY by a viewer who called it a “display of classism and racism.” But not everyone thinks it should be taken so seriously.

Attorney Sarah Avraham and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.
The audience should know that although Ms. Avraham is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a local attorney for any legal advice they may require.
This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law. The commonplace practice of billing rape victims in Louisiana for medical exams came to an end in June after state lawmakers signed off laws that change what the federal government has required for a decade. Why did this take so long? Why was the federal government allowing this in the first place? Tune in to hear our hosts answer these and other questions on this issue.
