uring last week’s hearings on Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s proposed 2013 city budget, District B City Councilwoman Diana Bajoie told one of those stories politicians use to make a point. “I was somewhere yesterday and I was asked the question, ‘Why is it the city doesn’t have enough money when we have all these big events coming into town?’” Bajoie said. “Super Bowl, Final Four, Mardi Gras, all these things filling up hotel rooms.” It’s a question that may be on the minds of many New Orleanians who are now following the city’s budget talks — and who have heard for years about the economic impact of big tourism events on the city’s coffers. The answer lies in the dispensation of the funds from the city’s hotel/motel taxes, which are levied on visitors here just as they are in many other cities — but the money doesn’t end up going to the same places as it does elsewhere.

Entergy New Orleans and New Schools for New Orleans

held a Teacher Appreciation Night at Rock ’n’ Bowl Oct. 30. Nearly 300 educators from 80 local schools came together for a night of food, music and recognition, and each teacher received two boxes of supplies for his or her classroom. Entergy New Orleans CEO Charles Rice also announced the corporation was donating nearly $800,000 to local schools and educational nonprofit organizations.

Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corp.,

sity of New Orleans Hospitality Research Center estimates that tourists in New Orleans spent nearly $3.5 billion in the first half of 2012, up from nearly $5.5 billion in all of 2011. Annual economic impact from Mardi Gras, we’re told, is anywhere from $300 million to nearly $1 billion, depending on how it’s calculated and who’s doing the calculating. In 2013, tourism officials boast, the Super Bowl alone is expected to generate more than $400 million in economic impact for the city. And yet all this has little effect on city tax revenues, because page 8

the state’s insurer of last resort, attempted to give its CEO Richard Robertson a $50,000 per year raise on top of his $240,000 annual salary. Treasurer John Kennedy and Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon rightly howled, and Donelon rejected the board’s request. The grab was particularly insulting in a year when the insurer approved a 45 percent rate increase for commercial customers.

THIS wEEK’S question:

With the re-election of President Barack Obama, are you more or less hopeful about the state of the country in the coming year?

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > november 20 > 2012

Landrieu’s 2013 general fund budget proposal is lean: $491 million, based on the most recent revenue projections. That’s a cut of about $6 million from the 2012 adopted budget (though actual 2012 revenues are expected to be about $14 million lower than forecast by the end of the year). About $13 million of the 2013 proposed budget will go straight to the city’s reserve fund to pay off debt remaining from 2010, when Landrieu’s new administration faced a $100 million deficit left from Ray Nagin’s tenure. That leaves roughly $477 million for actual city operations next year. On top of that, the city faces new expenses, including $7 million for the New Orleans Police Department’s anticipated consent decree and millions more in increased employee health care and pension costs. The result: City departments are threatened with cuts averaging 8 to 10 percent. Some, such as Orleans Parish Juvenile Court, face cuts of about 32 percent. Landrieu proposes a 2 percent increase in utility franchise fees — which he hopes will generate about $10 million to fix streetlights — and, in a bid to recover millions potentially lost in unpaid sanitation fees, Landrieu wants the City Council to allow the Sewerage and Water Board to have the discretion to shut off water services for those who don’t pay their trash bills. At the same time, tourism, one of the city’s largest and most visible industries, is doing well. A recent study by the Univer-

most of the taxes generated by tourism don’t go to the city’s general fund. Take the 13 percent hotel tax, for instance. Norman Foster, City Hall’s chief financial officer, told councilmembers last week that the city expects about $13 million from the hotel tax in 2013, about the same as the most recent estimates for this year. Based on that number, total reported hotel sales will approach $870 million, from which the state of Louisiana should expect about $78 million. in a fantasy scenario, in which all hotel taxes went to the general fund, the city’s general fund would reap about $113 million next year. But that’s not the case. Three state entities — the Louisiana superdome Commission, the ernest N. Morial Convention Center and the state general fund — get 9 of those 13 cents per hotel dollar. The superdome Commission — responsible for the superdome and the New Orleans Arena — gets the biggest cut: 4 cents per dollar, or about $34 million in 2013, based on city revenue estimates. The next largest beneficiary is the New Orleans exhibition Hall Authority — which governs the ernest N. Morial Convention Center — with 3 cents, or about $26 million in 2013. Two cents go directly to the state general fund. Of that, about $7.3 million is allocated this year to the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention and visitors Bureau and $2 million to the Morial Convention Center for debt services on outstanding construction bonds. Of the four cents not going to the state, two-and-a-half cents are divided between the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority and the Orleans Parish school Board. The remaining penny-and-ahalf goes to City Hall — meaning only 11.5 percent of the city’s hotel/motel tax take goes to city government. At the Nov. 9 budget hearings, council vice-president Jackie Clarkson gasped when she misheard RTA president Justin Augustine announce the agency’s share of hotel/motel revenues of “one and a half.” “We only get one and a half,” she said.

news + vIewS

The same model does not apply in other tourism-reliant cities. San Francisco’s 14 percent hotel tax — an entirely local tax — was expected to generate $220 million in the 2011-2012 fiscal year, according to city budget documents. Thirty-six percent, or $80 million, went to specific programs. Last year, well over half of that was allocated to convention center expenses, tourism and marketing. But about $16 million went to city-funded museums. And the 2012-2013 budget earmarks more than $5 million for the city’s affordable housing/rental assistance program. The remaining $140 million — or 64 percent — went to general fund discretionary spending. If the same formula applied in New Orleans, the tax would generate about $72 million for the 2013 city budget, roughly equal to the combined general fund budgets of the Health Department, the Sanitation Department and the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office. Atlanta budgets one-quarter of its 8 percent hotel tax revenue to the general fund. If New Orleans government took in the same portion of the city-state 13 percent hotel tax, it would receive about $28 million, $15 million above current estimates. That increase would more than cover added costs

“We pay everything to the state. We collect all the big monies to the state through tourism — and they send us unfunded mandates.” — City Council vice-president Jackie Clarkson

New Orleans’ $13 million in projected hotel tax dollars equals one-tenth of the city’s expected property tax revenue and less than half what it expects to make from parking and traffic tickets next year. However, as city budget director Cary Grant pointed out last week, there are even smaller sources of revenue. “Our 1.5 percent of the hotel-motel tax is more than the state gives us in general funding,” he told Gambit. The 2013 budget calls for about $10.8 million in intergovernmental transfers — money that mostly comes from state government — down from around $20 million per year from 2007 to 2010 and $13 million in 2004. “we pay everything to the state,” said council vice-president Jackie Clarkson during last week’s hearings. “we collect all the big monies to the state through tourism — and they send us unfunded mandates.” which is the short answer to Bajoie’s question.

for streetlight repairs, with enough left over to pay for most of next year’s consent decree expenses. Then there’s Clark County (Las vegas), Nev., which allocates one cent to discretionary general fund spending and one cent to local road projects. Other city general funds, however, see even less return from a similar tax than does New Orleans. Austin levies a 9 percent hotel tax, of which nearly 90 percent is spent on the city’s convention center and tourism promotion. The remainder goes to the city’s cultural arts programs. Miami-Dade County’s 2012-2013 budget sends every cent generated by its 6 percent local hotel tax to tourism and convention-related programs or debt service on entertainment and sports facilities.

scuttlebutt Quote of the week New OrleaNs is awesOme editiON “No. 1: New Orleans — The Crescent City is the ultimate crowd-pleaser: it scored in the top five in more than half of the survey’s categories. These high marks run the gamut from the quite civilized — fine dining, architecture, and antiques — to the boisterously unpretentious, such as its top-rated music scene and the colorful people-watching.” — Travel+Leisure magazine, naming New Orleans “America’s Best City” after analyzing the results of its annual readers’ poll. New Orleans placed No. 1 among visitors in the categories of “happy hour,” “music scene,” “singles scene,” “offbeat” and “proud of their city,” and placed in the top five in “diverse,” “friendly,” “sportscrazed” and “charming local accent.”

Jailhouse lock

Reading Jindal lOuisiaNa blOGs react tO the GOV’s receNt iNterViews Louisiana political blogs were largely taken aback by Gov. Bobby Jindal’s interview with Politico last week (see Commentary, p. 13), in which Jindal called for a new populism among republicans and said the GOP had to “stop being the stupid party.” The liberal-leaning Daily Kingfish called it “an uproarious etch-asketch,” “the thickest cut of monstrous bullshit imaginable,” “a shameless pivot” and “a vicious case of romnesia.” The hayride, a conservative-leaning blog, began its analysis, “in a 45-minute interview with Politico, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal tore into the GOP’s consultant class and suggested that republicans adopt a strategy of on the one hand counting on the intelligence of the electorate and on the other embracing populism. if that doesn’t make a great deal of sense to you, you’re not alone.” The conclusion? “Jindal’s going to run in 2016. Or if nothing else he’s going to try to, and if he finds enough support to build a campaign he’ll hit the trail. he can deny that all he wants, but the mere fact that he gave Jonathan Martin 45 minutes of his time (nobody in the Louisiana media gets that much one-on-one time with him) is proof enough.” — KeviN ALLMAN

On at least two occasions during the past two weeks of hearings on Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s proposed 2013 city budget, New Orleans City Council members have demanded Team Landrieu consider independent Police Monitor Susan Hutson be considered for a multi-milliondollar contract to monitor the proposed New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) consent decree. Last week, at-large Councilwomen Stacy Head and Jackie Clarkson, as well as District D Councilwoman Cynthia Hedge-Morrell, grilled City Attorney Richard Cortizas on the subject. Because hutson’s office already monitors the NOPD, hiring her for the job might help mitigate the $2 million cost allocated for the contract in the 2013 budget, one of the larger items in the total $7 million consent decree, hedge-Morrell said. “i think this is a ripoff,” hedge-Morrell said. “we don’t have $7 million.” Cortizas said that during consent decree negotiations, the U.s. Department of Justice (DOJ) indicated it wanted a third party, a company separate from city government, for the monitor’s job. if the city were to choose hutson as monitor, the feds would ask for a second monitor to monitor her office, Cortizas said. That is perhaps why the language of the proposed consent decree would seem to prevent that from happening at all. The document identifies the monitor and the iPM as two distinct entities. it adds that the monitor is to be identified through the city’s procurement process and that it is neither a public body nor an agent of one. hutson herself testified before the City Council on Nov. 8 that she did not believe she would be able to take over the contract. Deputy Police Monitor Simone Levine said the same when asked by Gambit last week. — ChArLes MALDONADO

GusmaN seeks 60 perceNt ‘fixed’ budGet hike Orleans Parish sheriff Marlin Gusman last week proposed a 2013 budget allocation he said would put an end to the “per diem” budget system, which has been criticized as an incentive to keep arrestees locked up in Orleans Parish Prison (OPP) for unnecessarily long stays. City officials, however, balked at Gusman’s request, a 60 percent increase over what Mayor Mitch Landrieu has offered for 2013. Many in and out of city government favor a “fixed budget” for Gusman’s office in the form of monthly allocations not tied to a prisoner count. Chief Administrative Officer Andy Kopplin said the city would be fine with a fixed allocation of $22.4 million, its current offer, which is a minor decrease from the $22.9 million allocation Gusman received this year. Gusman, however, said he needs $37 million. The city projects $491 million in 2013 revenues, $5 million less than what it projected for 2012, and city officials are looking at an additional $7 million expense to fund the New Orleans Police Department’s (NOPD) proposed consent decree. southern Poverty Law Center attorney Katie Schwartzmann, speaking at last

week’s meeting, asked council members to consider the budget carefully and think about what the city already has gotten for its tax dollars. schwartzmann is part of a class-action lawsuit against the sheriff’s office, alleging inhumane conditions at the jail. The federal government has joined that lawsuit, and the parties are negotiating a consent decree for OPP. “The prison is in fact out of control,” schwartzmann said. “This is a jail. it should be a short-term holding facility … and we don’t impose broken bones and rape as a penalty for any crime or as a penalty for being arrested.” — ChArLes MALDONADO

commentary

thinking out loud

Bobby 2.0 top being the stupid party.” That was Gov. Bobby Jindal speaking to Politico’s Jonathan Martin last week about the future of the Republican Party after the Nov. 6 elections. If you want to see just how much the elections shook up the GOP, look no farther than Jindal’s attempt to disassociate himself from some of his party’s platforms — many of which he once heartily embraced. Less than a week after the elections, Jindal tried to grab the national spotlight with a political high-wire act: promoting himself as both a traditional conservative and a forward-thinking guy. The interview got him lots of positive attention — and he doubled down on it at a meeting of the Republican Governors Association, twitting Mitt Romney for rationalizing his loss in the presidential election. We are at a loss to understand why, but then again, we know the truth about Jindal. Because so few in the media bother to question Jindal’s self-serving pablum, we’ll make it easy for them to compare Bobby Jindal 2.0 to Bobby Jindal’s record. Bobby 2.0: “Simply being the antiObama party didn’t work. You can’t beat something with nothing.” Bobby’s record: Jindal spent the

last few years blasting President Barack Obama at every turn — then demanding federal aid for hurricane relief and the BP oil disaster. In his first term, he grandstanded against Obama’s stimulus plan (even rejecting some economic development projects backed by his supporters) then handed out oversized checks bearing his signature to local communities — even though every penny of the money came from the president’s stimulus plan. And just one week before the election, Jindal went on a Twitter binge, mocking Obama’s “Forward” slogan and sneering, “The simple fact is that our President is a great campaigner and a great marketer … of himself.” And if anyone should know … Bobby 2.0: “The reality is we have to be a party of solutions and not just bumper-sticker slogans but real detailed policy solutions.” Bobby’s record: Jindal built his entire political career on talking points. Several months ago, when bellicose language was still in fashion, he told Politico that Obama “measures success by how many people are on food stamp rolls and governmentrun health care.” Louisianans have long waited for detailed policy solutions on pressing matters, from higher education funding to health care solutions. Instead,

discredited notions such as creationism — all with little or no oversight. Jindal, a Rhodes scholar and biology major at Brown University, explains his support for teaching creationism in public schools by saying, “I don’t want any facts or theories or explanations to be withheld from [students] because of political correctness.” Facts aren’t “politically correct” or incorrect; they’re facts. Again, he’s going to lecture the GOP about being stupid? Space limitations prevent us from exposing more of Jindal’s hypocrisy, but we’re confident he’ll give us more opportunities in the coming months and years. Meanwhile, Politico asked Jindal if he had any designs on the presidency. In reply, he trotted out his usual talking point: “I got the best job in the world and I’m going to be focused on being governor of this great state for the next three years … .” Truth be told, Jindal’s interests — and his decisions — have nothing to do with running Louisiana and everything to do with running for president in 2016. Until then, if he wants the GOP to stop being the stupid party and start being a party of solutions rather than bumper stickers, he should start with the man in the mirror.

We Care…

Jindal has blithely gutted health care and higher ed because he wants to maintain his “tax virginity,” and he rejects the Affordable Care Act out of blind ideological rigidity, even though it means jeopardizing the well-being of hundreds of thousands of Louisiana citizens. Some GOP governors now seem ready to reconsider their hardline rejection of Obamacare (Florida Gov. Rick Scott among them). Not Jindal. On this issue, Bobby 2.0 remains as obdurate as the original. Consequently, Louisianans will have to use a federal health exchange, which means they’ll get the benefits of Obamacare but the state won’t get matching funds. And he’s telling the GOP to stop being stupid? Bobby 2.0: “Let the dollar follow the child instead of making the child follow the dollar.” Bobby’s Record: Jindal’s public education reform plan allegedly follows that logic, but Louisianans know that “accountability” must likewise follow the dollar. That hasn’t happened under Jindal. In fact, the governor has fought every attempt to inject any measure of accountability into his school voucher program. As a result, millions of state taxpayer dollars will flow to fly-by-night Bible schools that teach

politics

Demographics and Destiny he annual Bipartisan Policy summit at Tulane university drew its largest crowd ever last Thursday (Nov. 15). The summit, presided over by James Carville and Mary Matalin, brings together the nation’s best political minds from both parties after Election Day to discuss whether America’s elected leaders can get past partisan bickering and get to work on America’s problems. It remains an open question. The gathering began with an analysis of how President Barack obama won re-election. Republican pollster Whit Ayres and Democratic pollster stan Greenberg agreed generally with the notion that demographics is destiny. This is not good news for the GoP, the party led mostly by old white men. Ayers didn’t sugarcoat his party’s loss. Democrats, he said, had “a far superior ground game” — identifying and turning out their voters. other factors that helped obama, Ayers said, were the “slowly improving economy that was improving just enough to get obama’s approval rating up high enough to win.” The president’s approval rating just before Election Day was

51 percent — exactly his share of the vote. Ayers also noted “some amazingly bad comments by some Republican candidates” that hurt the party’s cause nationwide. In particular, comments from GoP senate candidates in Missouri and Indiana helped solidify obama’s lead among women voters. All of those factors contributed to the president’s win, Greenberg agreed, but he added that Democrats also won because they recognized the diversity and character of the American electorate — and because of the “brand position” of the two parties. “We represent the rising American electorate,” Greenberg said of Democrats. “This isn’t just targeting groups that get something from government. We’re in a country in which the majority of households are not married. The majority of births are non-white. The white working class also is attending church less. … All of these are long-term trends that will have enormous impacts on politics, and all of these groups voted 2-to-1 for obama.” Hispanics are the fastest-growing segment of the American electorate. Greenberg said that every month almost

‘Sometimes the best way to win the next election is to lose the last one.’ — James Carville

50,000 Hispanic youth become eligible to vote. Asian voters are less numerous, but they too are growing rapidly as a percentage of the American electorate. obama carried Hispanic and Asian voters by huge margins on Nov. 6, but those two groups also represent the GoP’s best prospects for expanding the party’s appeal beyond white voters. As for the GoP’s “brand” problem, former ohio Gov. Ted strickland, a Republican, was blunt: “When I heard that Mitt Romney had a swiss bank account, I said, ‘This is a problem in ohio.’ The issue was not economic, but cultural. …

“What the electorate wants more than anything else from a candidate is the feeling that the candidate understands them. They never got the feeling that Romney understands them.” Does all this mean the GoP is doomed because of demographics? Carville, a staunch Democrat, doesn’t necessarily think so. “sometimes the best way to win the next election is to lose the last one,” he said. Consider the Democrats’ post-election hangover of just two years ago. Looking ahead, what do the election results portend for a bipartisan approach to governing? Most of the summit’s panelists agreed that the looming “fiscal cliff” will force both parties to the table in the short run, but the long-term prospects for bipartisanship are not bright. one poll result framed the problem perfectly: American voters overall, by a margin of almost 2-to-1, want Republicans to work with obama — but Republican voters want them to continue fighting the President … by the same 2-to-1 margin. Good luck, America.

Hey Blake,

I’ve tried with little success to find information on the Gold Seal Creamery in Mid-City, the one that made wonderful Creole cream cheese. Where was the creamery and when did it shut down? What happened to the Centanni family who owned it? Laila Fox Dear Laila, The Gold Seal Creamery, built in 1954 at 520 S. Alexander St., has a new identity. It has been converted into 31 energyefficient, mixed-income apartments called

cream cheese and other dairy products, but when it closed five years later, that figure had dropped to 6,000 gallons. The Centanni family was famous in New Orleans for its elaborate Christmas lawn decorations long before Al Copeland’s outdoor displays at his Jefferson Parish home caused traffic jams. In fact, the Popeye’s founder has said he was awed by the Centannis’ displays when he was a child. For about 20 years, the Centanni home at 4506 Canal St. was the place to go see Christmas decorations. Night after night, streams of pedestrians and lines of cars showed up for the display. Most of the Centannis’ yard and rooftop was filled with brightly lit decorations. There was a huge elephant with Santa Claus on top,

a chapel with a 12-foot angel, a nativity scene, rudolph leading Santa’s eight reindeer, St. Nick’s North Pole workshop and more. That all ended when Mrs. Centanni, the inspiration behind the lavish decorations, died unexpectedly of a heart attack at age 64 as her family’s New Year’s eve party was winding down on Jan. 1, 1967. The family never turned on the yuletide lights again. In 1985 the Centanni family donated much of the display to the Friends of City Park, which used it as part of the park’s holiday decor. Salvador Centanni continued to live in the family home until he died at age 97 on Dec. 6, 1995.

The general contractor was Woodward Design + Build. The project cost $7 million and is Domain’s fourth apartment development in Mid-City. Salvador F. “Sam” Centanni founded the Gold Seal Creamery in 1920, and it was a New Orleans fixture until it went out of business in 1986. At the time, the family business employed 60 to 70 workers, including Centanni’s five daughters, two sons, three sons-in-law and a daughter-in-law. Many of the employees lived in the neighborhood and walked to work each day. When he closed the creamery, Centanni, the company’s 88-year-old president, said competition and rising costs made it impossible to break even. In 1981, the company was doing a healthy daily business of 27,000 gallons of milk,

like the defending Super Bowl champs could make a run at a repeat. Then came the Giants’ annual swoon, with two consecutive losses heading into this week’s bye week. For some reason New York plays poorly at home, and the Saints have been a good road team. The Buccaneers put up a fight in Florida and entered the 11th week of the season with one more win than New Orleans. They face Atlanta, the Denver Broncos and the Philadelphia Eagles before taking the field in the Superdome Dec. 16. The Dallas Cowboys are a mess, and who knows where they’ll be when the Saints travel to Jerry World to face them two days before Christmas. But the Cowboys are beatable, and that’s the key point. For the Carolina Panthers to end the season in the Superdome again Dec. 30 provides a chance for revenge because of the Saints’ September loss in Charlotte. By the end of the season, the Panthers may well be mailing it in, and if a post-season spot is on the line, I like the Saints’ chances. We don’t know how all this will end, but after the Saints’ 0-4 start, it’s a great accomplishment even to have a possible presence in the playoffs. New Orleans is playing good football. The defense shows signs of improvement, and the offense seems to be back to its old form. While we watch to see whether the Saints can reach the post-season, the team will be playing playoff-style games, making the final six weeks of the season very intense. Buckle your chin straps and get ready for what should be an exciting finish to a season that has been one of the toughest in Saints franchise history.

an they do it? Can the New Orleans Saints make history and become the second team in NFL history — the 1992 San Diego Chargers were the first — to start the season 0-4 and reach the post season? A month ago I would have said the Black and Gold had no shot, but now they have a chance. The team was 4-5 heading into its Nov. 18 contest with the Oakland Raiders, and quarterback Drew Brees and his crew appeared in control of their destiny. But the Saints face an uphill battle and their upcoming opponents are in the playoff picture. A win against the Raiders, the last AFC team the Saints play this year, is essentially two wins — if the Saints win, there could be a tiebreaker. The Saints still face six NFC opponents, which is important because conference wins are another tiebreaker. Heading into this weekend’s game, the combined win-loss record of the upcoming NFC opponents is 31-23. Three games — against the Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys — are on the road. The Saints host the San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers in the Superdome. The 49ers knocked the Saints out of the playoffs last season, and the revenge factor should play a role in turning out Who Dats in full force. At times this season San Francisco has looked like a Super Bowl contender, but at other times the 49ers were beatable, accomplishing only a 24-24 tie in a match with the St. Louis Rams Nov. 11. The Saints were on their game when they beat the Atlanta Falcons 31-27 that same week, giving the Dirty Birds their first loss of the season. Following the game, Falcons receiver Roddy White said Atlanta “gave” the game to the Saints but would “be ready for them next time,” which will be Nov. 29 in the Georgia Dome. The New York Giants are, well, the Giants. The team started out hot, at times looking

t’s appropriate that Gambit’s 2012 Fall Bar Guide arrives just as the winter holidays get rolling. Celebrations with friends and family often beget visits to bars, and in New Orleans there is a watering hole for every taste and mindset. Here’s a chance to revisit past favorites and learn about some new ones, whether you’re in the mood for a dive bar, neighborhood joint, craft cocktails, dinner and drinks, an eclectic mix of patrons or a good date spot. The guide is arranged by neighborhood, and includes information about alcohol selections, live music, specialty nights, food choices, happy hours and more. So drink in the holiday season and beyond with a toast to New Orleans’ drinking culture.

Untreated American Leak leaks may not specialist Steve be obvious but Devall is poised to could result ferret out a leak. in severe floor and structural damages. Kleinpeter says if you notice a high bill you should investigate the cause. The website also provides useful videos on ways to test if there is a leak in your home, like the meter test, which can help homeowners find out how much water they are losing. American Leak Detection workers are not licensed plumbers, but they work with plumbers to repair damaged pipes. After they have found the leak, technicians make recommendation on the best way to repair the problem. “We either recommend a plumber for the homeowners if they do not have someone they use or sometimes a plumber will call us to come out and help on a job because they can’t find the problem,” Kleinpeter says. The company also can identify leaks in swimming pools and repair them, since these leaks require no work to the plumbing. Although the Louisiana franchise of the American Leak Detection is based in Prairieville, it services the Southeast region from the Atchafalaya Basin to Slidell.

t can be frustrating seeing water bills increase each month and not knowing the cause. The American Leak Detection (504-522-9897; www.americanleakdetection.com) specializes in finding leaks that could be the culprit behind those high bills. Vice president of the New Orleans location of American Leak Detection, Laura Kleinpeter and her husband opened the franchise in 1990. Kleinpeter’s husband had been involved in a family business and was looking for a change of pace. They learned about the company from Kleinpeter’s relatives. “My husband’s cousin and her husband owned the American Leak Detection in Houston, and they had it two or three years before we bought ours,” Kleinpeter says. American Leak Detection uses the latest technology to find hidden water, sewer and gas leaks for residential and commercial properties. Infrared technology is used to find water and energy leaks as well as pests. For leaks, the company uses a sonar device that puts pressure on the plumbing lines to locate a break. Because this device locates leaks through sound, it’s not necessary to damage the property. “Some service companies go in, and their way of finding the leak is to tear up sheet rock or flooring,” Kleinpeter says. “This equipment eliminates having to do that. If you can hear it, then you don’t have to see it.”

here’s a case to be made that at some level all Italian food is  comfort food, and nowhere is that more evident than at our  region’s Creole-Italian restaurants. Ristorante Filippo is a  prime example.      Twists of steaming-hot seeded loaves arrive like their own  indispensable course, and appetizers could be shared not just  by the whole table but by an entire family. After ordering heaping platters of spaghetti, paneed meats and bales of Parmesan,  diners typically depart so laden with bags of leftovers it looks  like they’ve been shopping. These are the hallmarks of a type of  restaurant New Orleanians love and know by heart.      The familiarity and welcome is especially important to note  in this case. After all, if you haven’t made it to Ristorante Filippo  since chef Phillip Gagliano opened it in 2001, it can seem like a  private club, surrounded by SUVs and town cars on a little island  between traffic interchanges. Open the door, though, and you’ll  find a little oasis of old-school style.     An antique cabinet supports a statue of St. Joseph, the reservations book, a cluster of roses and Champagne magnums. Thick  blinds keep the small dining room in perpetual dusk, crooners  croon over the sound system and a padded bar curves away into  a nook of a lounge. When the chef visits a table of guests, he’s  more likely to talk about their kids’ high school sports exploits  than about his food.

    For the most part the food speaks for itself. Baked oysters  become a delicious, spoonable casserole of molten breading, oil  and cheese. Meatballs are massive orbs that crunch with garlic  and fall apart to create a sort of bolognese in the marinara and  spaghetti. Each layer of tiramisu ripples with espresso.        The strength of the menu is not in its great diversity but in the  textbook consistency of its sauces, led by the marinara, a dark,  fine rendition with the texture of gravy and a sweetness tempered  by the quantities of ground and shredded Parmesan that eventually meld with it. The veal Marsala, equal parts meat and mushrooms over a huge pile of noodles, is almost entirely glazed with  the classic amber-hued commingling of wine, butter and stock.  The color of paneed chicken here could define “golden brown,”  especially when set against a white tangle of fettuccine ribbons  coated in rich Alfredo sauce.      I often wished the kitchen took one or two more steps. What  if the prosciutto on the towering veal Sorrentina was crisped,  I wondered while carrying home half of the enormous dish for  tomorrow’s lunch. What if something fresher was swapped for  the Caprese salad now that the summer’s tomatoes are just a  seasonal memory?      But you have to know what experience you’re coming for at a  place like Ristorante Filippo, and that’s a getaway to a kingdom of  sweet marinara, chianti, garlic and a continuous loop of Sinatra.

504-613-3850; www.neworleans.hyatt. com), where diners can order a la carte entrees and then round out the feast with items from a buffet of soups, sides, seafood (including raw oysters) and desserts for $49 ($20 for kids; free for those six and younger). Another new option this year is Rene Bistrot (700 Tchoupitoulas St., 504-6132350), from chef Rene Bajeux, which replaced La Cote Brasserie inside the Renaissance Arts Hotel. Thanksgiving brings a three-course menu at brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and dinner from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. for $48, with complimentary sparkling wine and mimosas. Restaurant R’evolution (777 Bienville St., 504-553-2277; www.revolutionnola.com), the finely-detailed destination dining spot from chefs John Folse and Rick Tramonto in the Royal Sonesta Hotel, will serve its first Thanksgiving dinner from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Details were not finalized at press time, but R’evolution will serve an abridged version of its sprawling normal menu plus a few Thanksgiving dishes. At Criollo (214 Royal St., 504-6814444; www.criollonola.com), the new restaurant inside the Hotel Monteleone, a four-course Thanksgiving menu is available from noon to 8 p.m. for $56 (breakfast is from 6:30 a.m.-11 a.m.), in addition to a la carte items from its regular menu. Most restaurants open for the holiday will have prix fixe menus, buffets or limited hours, so it’s important to check the details and get reservations if you’re dining out anywhere on Thanksgiving.

Morning Call opens in City Park

The Morning Call Coffee Stand (citywide; www.morningcallcoffeestand. com) has opened a cafe in City Park (www.neworleanscitypark.com), marking a new chapter for an institution with long roots and nostalgic ties in New Orleans. The Morning Call got its start in 1870 in the French Market, where for more than 100 years it served coffee and beignets and competed with Cafe du Monde for the business of market shoppers and vendors. Morning Call relocated to Metairie in 1974. Over the summer, the cafe and City Park announced plans to open a Morning Call inside the park’s Casino Building, the structure also known as the Timken Center, located behind the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. A grand opening is in the works, after which the cafe will operate 24 hours a day. Currently, the stand is keeping shorter hours that vary day to day. On a recent visit, however, the new Morning Call hardly felt new at all. With tile floors, marble counters, big steel coffee urns and an arch of bare light bulbs, it conjures images from historic photos of the original Morning Call, and it fits naturally in the old bones of the park’s Casino Building. Cafe tables continue out on a veranda where columns frame views of

SeNIOR DIReCTOR OF FOOD AND BeVeRAge, NeW ORLeANS FAIR gROuNDS Thanksgiving begins the thoroughbred racing season at the New Orleans Fair grounds & Slots (1751 gentilly Blvd., 504-944-5515; www.fairgroundsracecourse.com), and an outing to the historic track has long been a central part of the holiday for many New Orleanians. Some make a day of it (and fancy dress and costumes abound) while others simply pass through en route to family gatherings. Thanksgiving tables in the track’s Clubhouse are sold out, but you’ll find a holiday buffet in the grandstand for $29.99 and traditional fare from white beans to corned beef po-boys at the concession stands. Craig Dennison has been at the Fair grounds since 1990 and oversees its food throughout the year. : When you first started here, were you surprised to find that food had an integral role at a horse track? Dennison: It is different here. The local food is just a way of life, and the food we do here that people really respond to is local food. everyone who knows I’m part of the track, when the (racing season) is coming up, they’ll tell me how they can’t wait to come for opening day and what they’re going to eat. It’s just part of the place. : The track is known for its corned beef sandwich. What goes into that? D: That dates back for years. They used to carve it from stands right there as they made the sandwiches. Today, we’ll go through 40,000 or 50,000 pounds in a racing season. You have people, they’ll go to the same concession stand, order the same sandwich and then they have to eat it at the same spot every time. It’s part of their ritual for luck. : What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving at the track? D: There’s nothing like it. I’ve only had one Thanksgiving off with my family in all the time I’ve been here, and that was the year after Katrina when we didn’t open. But I love it. The best part of it is when I get people fed and can take a break — walking around you see all these unique New Orleans characters wearing their costumes and having their Bloody Marys. Hang out by the rail here and you’ll see it all. — IAN MCNuLTY

Holiday Season popup at Hotel Modern

The French/Vietnamese restaurant Tamarind by Dominique has closed inside the Hotel Modern (936 St. Charles Ave., 504-962-0900; www. thehotelmodern.com), and in its place the hotel has created an extended-run pop-up concept to feature a changing roster of purveyors from the area’s farm-to-table scene. The pop-up, called Why Not?, features different menus and partners for two-week stints running through the end of December. The chef is Michael Nirenberg, previously of the wine bar Oak, Patois and Delachaise. For its first incarnation, Why Not? is working with the new, whole-animal butcher

shop Cleaver & Co. and serving small plates made from a single pig. Next, it will feature dishes made with foods from Hollygrove Market & Farm. Craft cocktail maven Kimberly Patton-Bragg is preparing drinks to complement each of the Why Not? menus. “We’re opening the doors and it is a little loose, but at the end of the day it’s about coming in, having an open mind and having some great food,” says Hotel Modern creative director James Stuart. Tamarind by Dominique opened last year with namesake chef Dominique Macquet at the helm. He left the operation earlier this fall to focus on his next restaurant, Dominique’s on Magazine, which is slated to open in December. When the six-week span of Why Not? wraps up, Stuart says, the hotel will open a new restaurant, but the particulars of that future venture are still under development. “Whatever we do, it will stay with this farm-to-table, seasonal concept,” he says. Why Not? serves from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

“There is a world of difference between tasting and drinking. Tasting is what I associate with work and brainpower, with having every sense keenly honed while trying to draw on memories of other, related wines tasted before. Drinking is … a much more relaxed activity. I do very occasionally get tired of tasting, but that never spoils my enjoyment of drinking.” — Wine critic Jancis Robinson, writing in her column for the Financial Times about what a wine professional drinks on vacation.

Keeping It Real Lifelike explores surreal realism. By D. Eric Bookhardt

21st century have not been hesitant to employ technology and special effects to create realistic objects that fool the senses. For instance, Leandro Erlich’s Subway, 2010, installation features a life-size steel door like the kind seen on subways only here the window frames a continuous loop video of seated somnolent subway riders like members of a mechanical ashram with meditating acolytes in motion. Similarly, an untitled Cattelan sculpture realistically recreates a pair of stainless steel elevators that are actually installed seamlessly into the pristine walls of the museum. They look no different from other elevators except for their size — barely more than a foot tall. At the other end of the scale, Robert Therrien’s untitled folding table and chair sculptures are exact replicas of the sorts of folding seats and tables found in conference or meeting rooms, but here the chair seats come up to your chest and the table is tall enough for an adult to walk under with room to spare. While those surreal spatial distortions are fun, some of the more subtle pieces are no less stunning. For instance, Ugo Rondinone’s ultra-convincing still. life. (cardboard leaning on the wall) sculpture looks like a discarded bit of packing crate —only it’s really a cast-bronze panel meticulously painted to look like a scrap of corrugated cardboard. Ditto Alex Hay’s

isual art has long been concerned with realism — the accurate depiction of the “real” world around us — but now, thanks to digital photography, the Internet and cellphone cameras, we live in a world filled with images of everything that happens to almost everyone all of the time, as pictures of pets, birthday parties and vacations flash from digital devices to social media sites at lightning speed. Everything is special for at least a moment, but this renewed popular focus on the ordinary actually reflects the concerns and obsessions of the pop art movement of a half-century ago. The New Orleans Museum of Art’s big new Lifelike exhibition revisits pop art’s fascination with the ordinary, updated with new works that reflect the digital zeitgeist of the 21st century. Made up of more than 90 works from the 1960s to the present inspired by everyday objects and situations, Lifelike spotlights the work of 50 international artists including art stars like Chinese dissident sculptor Ai Weiwei and the Italian master-prankster Maurizio Cattelan. Multifaceted German maestros Gerhard Richter and Thomas Demand appear along side iconic American pop artists like Andy Warhol, Edward Kienholz and Chuck Close, among others. But where 20th-century masters like Warhol and Kienholz were content to present commonplace items as objects of contemplation, the artists of the

Japandroids is punk rock as a George NOV 10 p.m. Sunday Bernard Shaw malapropism. There one Eyed Jacks would be no salvaging youth from the young, Brian King and David Prouse 615 Toulouse St. realized on 2009 debut Post-Nothing — 569-8361 eight furious tracks about baby hearts sparking fire that pack all the wallop www.oneeyedjacks.net of an overloaded washing machine, seemingly intent on knocking Vancouver Island free of its continental grip. Three years later and engulfed in young adulthood, the boys are back in town with another eight-track tour de force, Celebration Rock (Polyvinyl), spitting gas on the embers and embracing being wasted: shouting out first-light High Lifes and Marlboros on “The Nights of Wine and Roses,” pouring some out for the Hold Steady’s Boys and Girls in America and Tom Petty’s “American Girl” on “Evil’s Sway,” finding profundity in inane companionship on “Younger Us” (“Gimme that night you were already in bed/ Said f—k it, got up to drink with me instead”) and the perfect word association for their band on “Adrenaline Nightshift” (“There’s no better high than this/ Adrenaline nightshift.”). There’s something about hollering at the top of your lungs, over five-alarm guitars and continually thundering drums, that lends rock lyrics greater import; it’s how, in these co-vocalists’ devil-may-blare throats, unpoetic lines like “If I had all of the answers and you had the body you wanted/ Would we love with a legendary fire?” become hoarse haikus of the all-night set.

The prospect of making a definitive movie about Abraham Lincoln must have been daunting even to Steven Spielberg. It’s not just that the Great Emancipator is the most beloved figure in American history, or that thousands of scholarly tomes have already examined every possible facet of Lincoln’s life and career. The problem Spielberg faced after an admitted decade of mulling over his Lincoln film had to be one of professional practices. How could the director adhere to long-held methods — from his penchant for crowd-pleasing, heartwarming tales to his scene-crushing reliance on overly sentimental music — without trivializing a subject no one © 2012 Dreamworks Lincoln (PG-13) wants to see diminished? The answer, as it turns out, was simple: Hire the two best possible Directed by collaborators in the world for the project — two-time Oscar winning acSteven Spielberg tor Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood) and Pulitzer Prize-winning Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, writer Tony Kushner (Angels in America) — and then get out of the way. Tommy Lee Jones, Sally With its light touch, spare camera work and deliberate pacing, Lincoln field and James Spader may be the most uncharacteristic film Spielberg has ever made. Its many pleasures are almost purely intellectual. There’s a brief and intense Civiil Wide release War battle scene early on, but the rest of this long movie involves people in darkened rooms speaking eloquently about matters of great national and philosophical importance. As a result, Lincoln won’t stand among Spielberg’s many all-time box-office hits. But it will be regarded as one of his finest and most authentically moving films. Virtually everyone who’s going to see Lincoln over the holidays expects the brilliant Day-Lewis to perform another cinematic miracle as Lincoln, and no one’s going home disappointed. It’s a relief to see the mythic figure fully brought to life on screen. Now 55, Day-Lewis had begun to resemble familiar photos of our 16th president even before makeup, costumes and immense verbiage were applied. Whether spinning folksy yarns that always seem to end in a potent message or addressing the sort of family troubles to which anyone can relate, DayLewis’s Lincoln is a study in contrasts — a humble, melancholic father and husband on one hand, a ferocious intellect and ruthless political strategist on the other. Kushner’s beautiful script fuels the fire and leaves us time to fully assimilate Lincoln’s essential guiding principles. Amazingly, Lincoln builds tremendous suspense through its depiction of the painstaking legislative process that would result in the passage of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which outlawed slavery in the United States. This is not the typical stuff of high drama, especially given that we all know how things turned out. Ratcheting the tension and gradually earning almost equal screen time with Day-Lewis is Tommy Lee Jones as Thaddeus Stevens, the Pennsylvania congressman to the political left of Lincoln who might have derailed the amendment by refusing to compromise his high ideals. Jones brings passion to the film and halts any chance of it turning into a civics lesson. Lincoln is powerful enough to make you wish it had been released a couple of weeks earlier, while we were still in the throes of an intensely political season. Even now, it provides a mind-clearing antidote to the irrelevant nonsense that saddles our presidential campaigns. That’s more than we have a right to expect from a Hollywood film, whether from Steven Spielberg or anyone else. — KEN KORMAN

ANGELA KING GALLERY. 241 Royal St., 524-8211; www. angelakinggallery.com — Works by Steven Kenny, paul Tamanian, Edward povey and Rick lazes, through November.

ARTHUR ROGER GALLERY. 432 Julia St., 522-1999; www. arthurrogergallery.com — “Against the Tide,” paintings and mixed media by Jacqueline Bishop; “Send it On Down,” photographs by Deborah luster; both through Dec. 22.

Autumn is the season of renewal in New Orleans, and this November marks both the reopening of the Antenna Gallery at its new St. Claude Avenue location and the fourth birthday of the Front — yet both feature works dealing more with endings than beginnings. At Antenna, David R. Harper explores mourning in sculptures crafted from white porcelain, fabric and lace inspired by the Dutch still-life tradition. But where the Dutch masters painted arrangements of flowers and fruit with occasional skulls as reminders of mortality, Harper’s style is more gothic. Better, Still features a deathly white porcelain doll next to a porcelain snake with blue floral patterns on its snow-white skin, in a haunting if creepy reprise of the way ornamentation has been used to commemorate the departed. In Noblesse Oblige, a large white porcelain deer with two heads appears in an delicate lace cage on a faux polar bear rug, rounding out Harper’s beautiful, yet disturbing, elaboration of a dreamlike alternate reality. Brad Benischek and Case Miller’s Breaking Up Is Hard To Do installation at the Front (picTHRu tured) is a no less psychological, yet totally funky, environDEC ment crafted to resemble a bitter end border crossing at some dark twilight zone of the soul. Featuring a realistic construction of a steel, graffiti-smeared port of embarkation complex, it really is an architectural rendition of the Charles Bukowski/Tom Waits worldview. An externalized equivalent of the bleak inner landscape of emotional loss that results when the bonds of love are sundered and people move on — which at the opening featured a guitar-strumming bum playing Nirvana and Jacques Brel covers as viewers traversed a winding, infernal looking corridor that deposited them unceremoniously outside the building. Not always appreciated, this at least offered a reminder of how disconcerting emotional transitions can be. — D. ERIC BOOKHARDT

at its 1970 san francisco premiere, a crutuc described Pearls Over Shanghai as “a lurid, acidtrippy faux-operetta.” the Shanghai on the boards at the allways lounge & theatre is a distilled version of the same mindboggling brew, but still not for tots or preachers. it’s a decadent delight, but you can’t entirely escape the feeling you should apologize to someone for enjoying it. two american tourists (melody Keel and allee peck), lovely women wearing very short dresses and fishnet stockings, arrive by boat at a pier that leads to a bare stage, dominated by a large Hell’s mouth. they have entered a campy enclave of “the yellow peril.” a plump rat named Chop Chop (Chris wecklein) is a minion of the evil mother fu (ni- tHru Pearls Over Shanghai DEC cole C.w. gruter), and she commands 8 p.m. fri.-sat. him to kidnap the Yankee virgins so they allways lounge & can be imprisoned in her whorehouse. theatre, 2240 st. they look about as virginal as mother fu Claude ave., (504) looks Chinese. mother fu, it should be noted, 218-5778; www.has a long, thin beard and mustache. this gender bending permeates the show and adds theallwayslounge.com to its surreality. Captain eddy (John michael Haas), an impossibly well-hung sailor, and his nearly nude, much-tattooed shipmate (andy overslaugh) are undecided about any course of action except sex play, which is the main occupation in this port. to follow the precise ins and outs of the narrative is daunting and nearly irrelevant. the show is marked by many song-and-dance numbers, an excellent five-piece band (including violin and clarinet) and some captivating surprises, including the slinky but graceful four-breasted green lizard (leah Kahn). a tip of the hat to band leader and composer matt bell, alicia Zenobia for her costumes and director nari tomasetti for keeping this X-rated chaos energetic and largely entertaining, although every once in a while, the huffing and puffing go over the top. — Dalt wonK

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “I see online that you not only write resumes, but also business plans. I work at a pharmaceutical company that is laying me off with a decent severance package. I was thinking of starting a small business here in New Orleans. Does that make sense in today’s economy? Also, what are my chances of getting a loan to do this?” — Martin S., River Ridge, LA Dear Martin, In terms of the timing and location in launching a small business, you’re right on target. The national economy has bottomed out and appears to be climbing, with economic forecasts for the Greater New Orleans area brighter than ever. New Orleans has received plenty of accolades recently for its business climate, including “Coolest StartUp City in America” (Inc. Magazine), “Most Improved City for Business” out of 100+ metro areas (The Wall St. Journal), and the Brookings Institution recently reported Grant Cooper that entrepreneurial activity in our city was 40% above the national average. Although you mentioned that you have served as a pharmaceutical sales rep, you didn’t talk about your overall experience. In order to successfully launch, operate, and manage a small business, you will need to utilize a wide range of business skills, including Banking & Finance, Purchasing & Inventory Control, Customer Relations & Account Management, Safety Awareness & Quality Control, Permitting & Governmental Compliance, Marketing & Advertising, Sales & Business Development, Hiring & Training, Vendor & Contractor Selection, Strategic Planning, and Problem-Solving. If your background doesn’t demonstrate that you possess those capabilities, I suggest that you take business courses and get up to speed. You would also do well to find a job, even if it is at a lower level, in the exact industry you are targeting, in order to learn as much as you can from the ground up.

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > november 20 > 2012

Strategic Resumes created a business plan this Spring for a young client whose father was well known in the regional Oil & Gas service industry. He had worked on some oil rigs, as well. His goal was to open a business providing hard-to-get parts, equipment, and supplies to clients in that field. We wrote a business plan showing how he could leverage his family contacts, provide world-class service, and specialize as a niche-based supplier meeting the needs of the energy industry throughout Southeast Louisiana. A few weeks ago, we received a nice thank you note from him stating that he had “exceeded the plan’s sales projections by over 400%” and was doing great.

In terms of obtaining a small business start-up loan, there are several factors to keep in mind. In general, no one will lend you start-up money simply based on a good business idea and your enthusiasm. There are several conditions a banker or funder will want to satisfy before betting on your new venture. First, you must have good credit. When you are asking others to place their funds in your care, you must show that you have done so with your money. Second, you should have a detailed business plan that covers everything, including your biographical profile, an executive summary of your project, marketing plans, capitalization needs, site selection, cost factors, breakeven analysis, and in-depth business research. Finally, you must have collateral. You may ask why you should need collateral if the idea is great and you are a proven winner in your career. The simple answer is that most small businesses don’t make it, with failure rates as high as 85% in the first year. According to one study, here are the 10 most important reasons that small businesses fail: 1) Lack of experience, 2) Insufficient capital, 3) Poor location, 4) Poor inventory management, 5) Over-investment in fixed assets, 6) Poor credit arrangements, 7) Personal use of business funds, 8) Unexpected growth, 9) Competition, and 10) Low sales. But make no mistake about it, the bank or funding agency doesn’t want to repossess your collateral, they are very much hoping you succeed. Keep me posted on your progress.
