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.

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.
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).

Southern Rep Premieres John Biguenet’s 'Mold': Theatre Review
Though the city’s collective memory of the flood may not need sharpening, the final play of John Biguenet’s Rising Water trilogy, Mold, transports audiences to New Orleans one year after the disaster, when the city stagnated in its quiet ruin.
Renovations Begin on Circle Food Store
Randy Hamilton worked at the Food Circle Store for 22 years until Katrina hit and five feet of water forced the downtown New Orleans one-stop-shop to shut its doors. Since then, denizens of the 7th ward have been asking one thing about the iconic building at N. Claiborne Ave. and St. Bernard Ave.: Are you coming back? Now, after years of waiting, residents finally get their answer. On Monday afternoon, the mayor, media, council members and loyal customers all gathered at the blighted corner store to announce its return.
David Vitter Calls Harry Reid 'Idiot' Over Katrina-Sandy Comparison
Updated 4:30 p.m.
Washington name-calling is at a new high in the new year, thanks to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. In addition to twice being told, "Go fuck yourself" by House Speaker John Boehner, the Nevada Democrat attracted scorn from these parts when he sized up Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy on the Senate floor last week, and decided the mid-Atlantic's devastation was worse than the Gulf's.
