NOLA Lore: Zack and Addie

A Hurricane Katrina Murder Mystery



Each week, J.A. Lloyd will take readers through the secret and sometimes unexamined legends, myths, and folklore of New Orleans past. This week, learn about the star-crossed lovers of the French Quarter, Zack and Addie. 


Brock Long Backed by Senate for FEMA Position


Almost two weeks into what is predicted to be an “explosive" hurricane season, the Trump administration has yet to install a leader for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). On Monday (6.12), it was reported that a Senate panel confirmed the nomination of Brock Long to head up the agency. 


'Katrina Girl' to Bring Her Rescuer to JROTC Ball


One of the most iconic images of Hurricane Katrina was the photograph of three-year-old LaShay Brown smiling widely as she hugged U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant Mike Maroney, then a member of a pararescue team who lifted Brown’s family from the roof of their home they had been stranded on September 6, 2005. 


New Trial Begins for ex-NOPD Officer Convicted in Henry Glover Case


The ghosts of post-K chaos continue to linger at Camp and Poydras. Jury selection began Monday morning in a new trial for one of the former NOPD officers who was convicted in connection with the death of Henry Glover. David Warren, who shot Glover near a strip mall in Algiers on Sept. 2, 2005, was granted the new day in court by a federal appeals panel last year.


Danziger Convictions Overturned

Judge Orders New Trial for 5 NOPD Involved in Post-Katrina Killings, Cover-up



Updated 11:10 p.m.

There will be a new chapter in the case of the post-Katrina police shootings on the Danziger Bridge. In a blistering order issued Tuesday morning, a federal judge tossed out the 2011 convictions of five NOPD officers in the killing of innocent people, and resulting cover-up.  


Local Leaders Reflect on 8th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina


New Orleanians are known for living in the moment, but when the calendar turns to August 29 the city is given to a day of reflection. Though it is now eight years since the destruction brought by Hurricane Katrina, the levee breaches and the response crisis, the events of 2005 continue to shape the City. The anniversary of the hurricane making its second landfall in Louisiana and Mississippi brought an outpouring from local leaders.


Hurricane Katrina, 8 Years On: Remembrances, March, Hip-Hop


Eight years ago today, Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Gulf Coast, setting off a chain of events that eventually left 80 percent of the city underwater, and killed more than 1,800 people. While the numbers of the annual Katrina Index offer a stark reminder of the daunting work surrounding the recovery, many New Orleanians will choose to find comfort away from the numbers. From the hip-hop rev to a backatown parade, a series of events are slated to mark the day, as well as remember all those who have yet to come home.


Mayor Mitch Floats Plans to Move City Hall to Charity Hospital


The much-talked about, yet still vacant, Charity Hospital could soon have a new use, if plans that the Landrieu Administration are putting in motion come to bare. Mayor Mitch's administration wants to move City Hall into the sprawling former public hospital on Tulane Ave., according to a budget request form issued by the City.


SCOUTS Rejects Federal Flood Case


The U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to wade into the MR-GO. The highest court in the land opted not to hear the appeal of a case that blamed damages from the flood following Hurricane Katrina on shoddy work by the Army Corps of Engineers on the since-closed Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet.


Hurricane Party

Bywater StormFest Eases New Season's Nerves



Saturday, June 1, marks the first official day of the time of year New Orleanians dread most: hurricane season.  While the city should always take a stirring cyclone seriously, why not combat the chaos and ring in the new season with what the city does best: a festival.  This Saturday from noon to 5 pm, the Goodchildren Social Aid and Pleasure Club hosts StormFest at Holy Angels (3500 St. Claude Ave., Bywater).
