Horror Show: Fire Ravages Delgado Theatre Production, Show Must Go On


For a Delgado Community College theater department, horror came after the production was over on Saturday night. Early Sunday morning, a catastrophic fire engulfed the set of the outdoor Rocky Horror Show production as well as the majority of the department’s sound and electrical equipment. Originally thought to be an electrical fire, inspectors now believe the blaze was sparked by the smoldering of a carelessly flicked cigarette.


Staring Down Budget Hole, Delgado Freezes Expenses


UNO isn't the only public higher education institution in town that's facing budget woes as a result of state funding cuts. Delgado Community College is currently in a $13 million budget hole, and will be forced to put a freeze on extra expenses as a result. The College, which has campuses near City Park, in Algiers and in seven other locations around the metro area, announced a freeze on expenses today, and said that still wouldn't be enough to dig them out.


Today in New Orleans 10.13.12


There’s a lot to do this Saturday in the Big Easy, with some college football in Baton Rouge, galas all over town, festivals with the city’s best food and music, an animal expo for dog lovers, and the weekend’s Endless Gaycation events! Today in Louisiana music history, Louis Armstrong & His All-Stars appeared live on CBS’s “The Edsel Show,” (1957). Now, more on Saturday’s events.

Below Sea Level

Pawel Wojtasik Holds a Mirror to New Orleans During Prospect.2



Even in New Orleans, many residents tend to stick the places they know, rarely leaving the comfortable confines of the neighborhoods where they live and work. Or at least that’s our excuse for getting lost on the way to Delgado Community College for the opening of Pawel Wojtasik’s video installation Below Sea Level.


Warren Buffett, Goldman Sachs Boss to Talk Small


Land Bill Gates, and the rest will follow. Tomorrow morning, financial whiz Warren Buffett and Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein will be in town to address a class of 30 small business owners graduating from a Delgado Community College program. The pair helped fund the program to the tune of a $20 million investment. The 10,000 Small Businesses Program offers its students classes in accounting, negotiation, marketing and human resources. The program is also helping Buffett move up from his old stomping grounds at CNBC. The Oracle of Omaha will appear with Mayor Mitch on MSBC's Morning Joe tomorrow at 7:20 a.m. to tout the program.
