La. 182 oaks granted pardon from Gov. Bobby Jindal

Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development had planned to cut 13 live oak trees along La. 182 near Moresi Road as part of a project to upgrade a portion of the highway. DOTD says the centuries’ old live oaks are too close to the road, creating safety issues. Resident Donovan Garcia said, “The DOTD does not need to remove these trees. They are taking a cheap way out and they don’t know what they’re talking about. They can save these trees if they want to.” The trees were spared by order of Gov. Bobby Jindal Tuesday.

Hurricane season closes

Members of The Confraternity of Our Lady Star of the Sea gathered Sunday afternoon with the Our Lady Star of the Sea statue on Brashear Avenue to pray for the protection for the community by asking the “Blessed Mother” to intercede. The first prayer session at the statue was held Aug. 22, 1979. The Rev. Kerketta Noas of Sacred Heart Catholic Church officiated at the ceremony. Sunday marked the official close of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season, making it the ninth season without a major storm to hit Florida. The National Hurricane Center recorded eight named storms in the Atlantic this year, six of them hurricanes, but none made landfall in Florida. Though the season was quiet, the hurricane center said forecasters were still able to use new tools that could improve track and intensity predictions. Meantime, the eastern North Pacific hurricane season was its busiest since 1992, with 20 named storms.
