An Open Letter tO SenAtOr DAviD vitter Dear Senator Vitter, We write to you regarding your recent campaign ads in which you depict Latin American people in an offensive and blatantly racist manner. Your choice of images does little to demonstrate any meaningful argument regarding the issue of immigration, but they do plenty to foment fear and hate between people. That your office fails to recognize this demonstrates to us your lack of understanding about our community, or perhaps worse, your deliberate disregard. Your use of racially charged images of Latin American people crossing through a border fence ignores the complexity of immigration. Beyond its degrading portrayal of the Latin American community, which has been around since the founding of this country, these ads purposefully distort many facts about immigrants for cheap political benefit. When people are used and harmed in such a way for the gain of another, that action is by definition racist in nature. Such tactics should never be utilized by any public office, but in particular one as important as a United States Senate office. Latin Americans in this country are a diverse and culturally rich people, and we contribute enormously to America. Our sons and daughters have also fought and died protecting this country. It is important for the general community to understand that we too believe there is a dire need for immigration reform, but one that is thoughtful, meaningful and deliberated void of political rancor. Immigration is not just a south of the border issue, as you would have the voters believe. Every day undocumented immigrants enter the United States from all over the world. Finally, immigrants are a large part of the economic equation and contribute significantly to the American economy, as you are well aware. Rather than educate the public, you choose to single out one aspect of immigration that portrays Latin Americans in the most negative way possible. We find this not only dishonest and unbalanced, but also intentionally degrading and reprehensible. We cannot help but feel that you, and other politicians like you, do not genuinely aspire for meaningful immigration reform. This country needs leaders with real solutions for everyone, not just for those who share your beliefs or support your campaign. The public trust you are bestowed with should be for all of us, including Latin American people. That you should portray us negatively to gain political advantage is offensive, and requires nothing less than an act of contrition on your part. Therefore, we urge you to demonstrate your contrition by apologizing publicly to all Latin American people of the State of Louisiana. Demonstrate to us that our concerns are being heard and respected. Without this, we will be forced to conclude that you deliberately intended to use racially charged images, and as such will consider your actions as intentionally racist towards all Latin American people.

Sincerely, The Coalition of Concerned Hispanic-American Civic Leaders

Obama two years ago, yet on the president’s signature initiatives — health care and the stimulus plan, for example — Cao voted “no.” We respect Cao for his core values, but the job of a congressman is to represent his or her district. We believe Richmond would do a better job — not because he is a Democrat, but because he already has more than a decade of success as a state lawmaker. Richmond authored Louisiana’s highly successful New Markets Tax Credits program, which put millions of recovery dollars to work across south Louisiana. He also voted against the legislative pay raise in 2008. Most of all, Richmond has demonstrated an ability to reach across the aisle to work with lawmakers from other parties and other parts of the state to get things done. We need that in Congress. Richmond is far from perfect, but he

In the race for U.S. Senate, the choice could not be clearer: The incumbent, David Vitter, has disgraced himself, his family, his party and his state. After campaigning as the embodiment of family values, he was exposed as a client of the infamous D.C. Madam prostitution ring. He has brought shame upon us all, yet he has shamelessly waged a campaign marked by race-baiting ads about illegal aliens, gross distortions of the record, and a cowardly refusal to participate in independent debates. On top of all his “serious sins,” Vitter knowingly kept on his payroll for two years a man who held a knife to the throat of his former girlfriend, threatened to kill her, and then cut her throat. After all that, Vitter put the aide in charge of women’s issues. David Vitter needs to go. Thankfully, voters have a viable conservative alternative in Congressman Charlie Melancon. Though a Democrat, Melancon has a long history of crossing the aisle to vote for what’s right for Louisiana and for America. Like most people in Louisiana, Melancon is pro-life, pro-gun and, most important of all, his election will show the world that Louisiana does indeed have standards of conduct for its elected officials. Sen. Vitter wants this race to be a referendum on President Barack Obama. That’s because he could never survive a referendum on David Vitter. We urge our readers to elect Charlie Melancon as Louisiana’s U.S. Senator.

owns up to his past mistakes. We believe he is wiser and stronger for it. We urge our readers in the 2nd Congressional District to vote for Cedric Richmond.

richMond for congreSS

dardenne for lt. governor

In the race for the 2nd Congressional District, we like both Cedric Richmond and Anh “Joseph” Cao, for different reasons. We have seen Richmond mature significantly as a state representative and as a young professional since Hurricane Katrina, and we have always liked Cao’s low-key, diplomatic approach to the political process. After long reflection, we give the nod to Richmond. While Cao has conducted himself with honor, his primary allegiance in Congress seems to lie more with the national Republican Party than with his overwhelmingly Democratic constituents. The 2nd District voted nearly 4-to-1 for President

Melancon has a long history of crossing the aisle to vote for what’s right for Louisiana and for America.

We endorsed Secretary of State Jay Dardenne in the Oct. 2 primary, and we reiterate our support for his candidacy for lieutenant governor. He has more than 20 years’ experience in government, and he has conducted himself with integrity throughout his career. We like his moderate approach to governance and decision making, and we believe he has proved he is ready to assume this new role.

conStitutional aMendMentS

Voters approved two proposed amendments to the state Constitution on Oct. 2, but must decide the fate of 10 more next Tuesday. Here are our recommendations:

commentary

Amendment 6. Amendment 7: FOR. This amendment would simplify the rules for tax sales and redemptions of property sold at tax sales. It also would make the rules for movable and immovable property the same. We urge our readers to vote FOR Amendment 7. Amendment 8: FOR. This amendment would remove the requirement that public authorities first offer expropriated property back to the prior owner before the property can be sold to a third party if the property was taken to remove a threat to public health or safety and was held for 30 years or less. There is no reason to offer blighted, unsafe property back to the owner who allowed it to become blighted or unsafe in the first place. This amendment is critical to blight reduction in New Orleans, and we therefore are FOR Amendment 8. Amendment 9: FOR. This amendment would require that appeals of worker

comp cases be treated like all other civil appeals. That is, when an appeals court overturns an administrative judge’s ruling by a “split vote” of 2-1, the case would have to be re-argued before a five-judge appeals court panel. This brings consistency to the judicial system; we are FOR Amendment 9. Amendment 10: AGAINST. This amendment reduces the right of defendants to a fair trial by requiring that criminal defendants in noncapital cases (i.e., those that do not involve a possible death penalty) decide at least 45 days before trial is set to begin whether they want to waive their rights to a trial by jury. If adopted, this amendment would further clog the courts and slow down the criminal justice process — which means it is not at all the “victims’ rights” proposal supporters claim it to be. We urge our readers to vote AGAINST Amendment 10.

Amendment 1: FOR. Amendment 1 would provide that any increase in the salaries of statewide elected officials, Public Service Commission members or lawmakers could not take effect until after the next round of statewide elections. This amendment comes several years after lawmakers approved a large pay raise for themselves in 2008 — one that Gov. Bobby Jindal vetoed. Unlike every other Louisiana newspaper, we supported a legislative pay raise in 2008, but we said then that it should not take effect until the next term of office. This amendment would make our suggestion the law of the land. We urge our readers to vote FOR Amendment 1. Amendment 2: FOR. This amendment would increase the share of severance taxes the state must pay to local parishes for certain natural resources extracted from the respective parishes. The state already stifles parishes’ ability to raise revenues. This measure gives parishes greater self-sufficiency, and we therefore recommend voting FOR Amendment 2. Amendment 3: FOR. This amendment would allow parishes to call an election raising the homestead exemption for disabled veterans who have service-related disability ratings of 100 percent. Surviving spouses of deceased vets who qualified for the exemption could continue claiming it. While we generally support lowering property tax exemptions, we believe disabled veterans deserve special preference after having paid so dearly for our freedoms. We are FOR Amendment 3. Amendment 4: AGAINST. Present state law requires that property tax millage rates be automatically “rolled back” after each quadrennial reassessment to make the new property assessments revenue neutral. However, all taxing bodies can then, after a public hearing, roll the millage forward each year up to the level that it was prior to the reassessment — but no higher. This amendment would limit certain taxing authorities to a “roll forward” of only 2.5 percent above the prior year’s millage level. We oppose this idea because it arbitrarily ties the hands of agencies that provide such critical needs as recreation, lighting, sewerage, drainage, libraries and hospitals. We urge our readers to vote AGAINST Amendment 4. Amendment 5: FOR. This amendment would allow hurricane-displaced homeowners to continue receiving breaks on their property tax bills after major storms while they struggle to return home. We recommend voting FOR Amendment 5. Amendment 6: FOR. Louisiana faces huge deficits in the future because of generous retirement benefits accorded various groups of public employees. This amendment would require legislative approval of future benefit changes — and two-thirds approval for increases that affect actuarial costs. We are FOR

NEW ORLEANS KNOW-IT-ALL

Questions for Blake: askblake@gambitweekly.com

HEY BLAKE, WHAT IS THE ODD STATUE OF BIENVILLE IN THE FRENCH QUARTER WITH AN INDIAN ON IT, AND WHAT SIGNIFICANCE DOES BIENVILLE HOLD FOR NEW ORLEANS? STELLA VAN HORN

DEAR STELLA, Jean Baptiste LeMoyne de Bienville founded our fair city. It was not easy to tame the wilds of America in the 18th century, but France had plenty of men who hoped to make their fortunes in the New World. The statue you mention was sculpted by artist Angela Gregory in 1955 for the Louisiana Purchase Sesquicentennial Commission. The bronze statue originally was placed near the Union Passenger Terminal, but in November 1966 it was moved to Bienville Place, the triangular park between North Peters and Decatur streets at Conti Street. The work shows Bienville in colonial attire. Seated to his left is a Native American (the land upon which New Orleans was built belonged to the Chitimacha when he arrived). Standing to his left is Father Athanase, a Recollect monk. The statue commemorates the founding of New Orleans and places the date at 1717, but other sources say the city was officially founded in May 1718. Bienville was born in Montreal, Canada, on Feb. 23, 1680. When he was 18, he set out with his older brother Iberville to found a colony for France at the mouth of the Mississippi River. Iberville chose Biloxi, Miss., for his first settlement, and in 1699 built a fort there. Iberville left another brother, Sauvolle, in charge of Biloxi and ordered Bienville to explore farther down the coast while Iberville returned to France. Iberville came back with a commission from the French government appointing Sauvolle governor of Louisiana. At that time, Louisiana stretched from Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to Canada and New Mexico. When Sauvolle died in 1701, Bienville became governor and moved the seat of government to Mobile, Ala., where a year earlier he had constructed a fort. In 1704, Bienville’s younger brother Chateauguay brought 17 settlers from Canada, and the king of France sent a ship with 20 women to provide wives for the Mobile settlers. Iberville died around this time, leaving the family’s interests in Louisiana to the two youngest le Moyne brothers. Bienville was recalled in July 1707, after royal com-

missioner Rene-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle charged Bienville with several counts of misconduct. Bienville retained his governorship, however, because his replacement died during a voyage from France. It was a difficult time for the colony. Settlers faced famine in 1709 and 1710 after Bienville’s plan to have Native Americans plant and harvest crops failed. In 1712, the French king gave Antoine

Crozat an exclusive 15-year grant on trade in Louisiana, including the right to import African slaves to cultivate farmland. In 1712, Crozat appointed French soldier and explorer Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, Sieur de Cadillac governor of Louisiana and demoted Bienville to lieutenant governor. Cadillac died in 1715, making Bienville governor once more. Bienville founded New Orleans in 1718, leaving 50 settlers to cultivate the land and build houses. He transferred the seat of government here in 1722. Bienville was ordered to return to France in 1724 to face more charges. He was removed from office two years later and stayed in France until he was sent back to Louisiana in 1733 — as governor. He remained here until he again lost his seat in 1743, reportedly for waging unsuccessful campaigns against the Chickasaw Indians. He died in Paris on March 7, 1767.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“It is clear that Governor (Bobby) Jindal really does not enjoy his current job. In my view, he should just resign, spend all of his time traveling and promoting the fictitious ‘Louisiana miracle.’ … By resigning, Governor Jindal can have everything he desires, all the publicity, but none of the problems. Governor Jindal should follow the lead of Sarah Palin. She resigned and landed a bestselling book and a gig on Fox News. Now she is more popular than ever. Jindal obviously craves that sort of attention, so all he needs to do is eliminate the pesky nuisance of being Governor of Louisiana.” — Jeff Crouere, former executive director of the Louisiana Republican Party, on his bayoubuzz.com website

She was a summer page on Capitol Hill and later practiced law there. She graduated with honors from both Dartmouth College and the University of Michigan Law School.

But, like a diligent Junior Leaguer (she’s a member of the local chapter) Fayard also has the next five or so years planned out: On Nov. 2, she’ll be elected lieutenant governor and serve out the rest of the unexpired term left by New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, and then she’ll lock down next year’s regular election for a subsequent four-year term. Of course, those are just Fayard’s plans. Voters may have something, or someone, else in mind. Any seasoned politician knows all too well what happens to the best-laid plans of mice and men — and women. That’s where Jay Dardenne comes in. The Baton Rouge Republican secretary of state has spent most of his life with a political wind at his back, and now he hopes it will propel him into the state’s No. 2 position. He served as student body president at LSU and lost his

That’s unholy.

BY JEREMY ALFORD

The gloves are off in the Nov. 2 secretary of state election showdown between political novice Caroline Fayard and veteran politician Jay Dardenne.

Louisiana State University student body president J Hudson ignited a firestorm on Oct. 18 when The Keene Sentinel, a New Hampshire newspaper, published his letter pleading with Gov. Bobby Jindal to return to Louisiana to tackle the state’s budget crisis. “Gov. Bobby Jindal is spending more time in your state than the one he was elected to represent,” Hudson wrote, adding, “I read almost daily about his trips to other states, which makes me believe that he is more interested in running for president than running the state of Louisiana.” The timing of the letter — which was picked up by national news sources — couldn’t have been more embarrassing for Jindal, who not only had been at the referenced campaign event in New Hampshire the week before but also was in Wisconsin stumping for GOP candidates the day Hudson’s letter was published. Hudson told CNN he had attempted to meet with Jindal to discuss higher education budget cuts, only to be rebuffed:

first real race in 1987. That was the last time Dardenne tasted political defeat. He won a seat on the East Baton Rouge Metropolitan Council the following year and a seat in the state Senate in 1991. Fifteen years later, he was elected secretary of state, a title he still holds. And just like Fayard, he plans to be Louisiana’s next lieutenant governor. In some ways, Dardenne and Fayard are fighting over the same home turf — metro Baton Rouge. Meanwhile, she’s defending her newfound base in New Orleans against one of the few statewide elected Republicans who can perform well in the Crescent City. In 2006, Dardenne faced a field of seven in the special election for secretary of state, including then-fellow state Sen. Francis C. Heitmeier, a New Orleans native. In that low-turnout race, Heitmeier garnered 12,908 votes in Orleans Parish to Dardenne’s surprisingly strong 12,812. That was then. When Dardenne and Fayard competed for lieutenant governor — along with six other candidates — on the Oct. 2 ballot, the results were dramatically different. Fayard, a Democrat, won more than half the total votes cast in Orleans Parish, or 20,279, to Dardenne’s 8,866. Another 11,000 or so votes were split among the other candidates. Political consultant James Hartman credits Fayard with getting her “ducks in a row.” Her election-day spending report (filed on Oct. 13) showed 74 workers who were paid from $50 to $400, totaling more than $11,600 overall, with another $15,000 going to consultants and civic groups — all in New Orleans. Hartman added that the political power structure in New Orleans, which is overwhelmingly Democratic, has never given Dardenne much mind. “I think Fayard can repeat her performance again in New Orleans fairly easily. … She clearly had an excellent field organization. She was also the only strong Democrat in a crowded field of Republicans,” Hartman says. Meanwhile, the Oct. 2 results in Baton Rouge gave Dardenne his half of the votes, or 35,133, to Fayard’s 19,337. That’s a much tighter spread than what Fayard racked up in New Orleans. And in Baton Rouge, Fayard didn’t put the kind of money on the streets that she did in New Orleans. Albert Samuels, associate professor of political science at Southern University in Baton Rouge, says Fayard will have to work harder if she wants to capture East Baton Rouge Parish — as Barack Obama did two years ago. “I think Jay Dardenne is beatable, but she’s going to need to do a better job here,” Samuels says. “I’ve seen very little

effort being used to mobilize the AfricanAmerican community, and she can’t count on the U.S. Senate race to do that for her.”

AS YoU MiGht expect of SoMeoNe who has spent decades in the political arena, Dardenne has picked up the lion’s share of major endorsements. two weeks ago, he won the support of the Alliance for Good Government, and former Arkansas

Gov. Mike huckabee, a one-time presidential contender still looking to gain national influence, landed in Dardenne’s corner. Dardenne’s biggest boost, however, came on the heels of the oct. 2 primary when lafayette Republican and country music star Sammy Kershaw, who finished a very respectable third in the primary, threw his support to the secretary of state. Sources say fayard made overtures to Kershaw, but Gop insiders say it’s not surprising he stayed in the party lane. Kershaw clearly has residual appeal. he barely campaigned, yet he garnered 126,000 votes in an eightperson field, compared to Dardenne’s 181,000 and fayard’s 160,000. in addition to picking up Kershaw’s endorsement, Dardenne also gained a press flack. Amy Jones, who previously handled media outreach for Kershaw, is now on Dardenne’s team. No word yet on what Kershaw may have gotten out of the deal, but it no doubt was more favorable than the outcomes of some of the crooner’s many well-publicized divorces. Not to be outdone, fayard has a media veteran in pierre, probably best known for co-hosting WWl Radio’s first News show with bob DelGiorno, which remains one of the most listened-to radio programs in southeast louisiana. her journalism career spans 23 years in the crescent city, and she has an emmy to her credit. pierre’s talk radio background may have helped fayard land a guest spot on the statewide syndicated Moon Griffon Show, a beacon for conservative voters. it was a defining moment for fayard, even if Griffon has an ax to grind with Dardenne, having long been a critic of the senatorturned-secretary of state. During the broadcast, fayard began to distance herself from obama & co. She declared that the health care overhaul was giving her “anxiety” and explained that she had backed Republicans as well

as Democrats over the years — much like her father. She also promised not to support tax or fee increases. She delivered that message to an audience Griffon has kept well-informed about Dardenne’s old Senate votes on taxes, gaming and a variety of other issues. there’s even a pDf of talking points on Griffon’s website. Dardenne’s camp, meanwhile, was forced to post www.therealjaydardenne. com months ago to explain some of the votes being criticized now — and to clear up a few half-truths, such as his record on abortion. that was long before he went on the attack against fayard over the airwaves. the dynamics of the race have shifted since then. oNe coUlD ARGUe thAt DARDeNNe’S name is on the ballot because he has been preparing for this job his entire adult life. fayard’s name is on the ballot as a true political novice, but she’s already established herself as the “future” of the state Democratic party. Some Republicans are touting Dardenne as the “future” as well, noting that he’s more prepared to step up and take the place of Gov. bobby Jindal should the governor answer the call of beltway Republicans, some of whom view him as the “future” of the national Gop. it’s probably safe to say that Dardenne, fayard and Jindal all will remain part of louisiana’s political future; we just don’t know yet in what capacity.

“but a few days after that, i started reading he was in florida, New hampshire, New York, Wisconsin. No wonder he has no time, he’s all over the United States and not in louisiana.” State budget cuts at universities and colleges have totaled $280 million over the last two years. An Associated press report estimated cuts over the next few years will run an additional $290 million. in response, Jindal press secretary Kyle Plotkin said the governor had spent 90 percent of his time in louisiana since being elected, and that Jindal aides had met with hudson to discuss his concerns. the next day, in an attempt to reach out to college students online, Jindal set up a new facebook page designed to solicit suggestions from, and create dialogue with, undergrads. “to louisiana college Students: our government is spending

more than we can afford, and i believe our universities are delivering less value than you deserve,” Jindal wrote. the title of the page? “More Value in higer [sic] education.” Jindal, a native of baton Rouge, graduated from brown University — an ivy league institution — and was a Rhodes Scholar. — Kevin Allman

the nation’s leading political strategists will return to New orleans on Nov. 9 — one week after the midterm elections — for the second annual bipartisan policy center (bpc) summit at tulane University. this year’s summit, titled “beyond the ballot: Making Washington Work,” is cohosted by New orleans’ own bi-partisan couple, James Carville and Mary Matalin. the public is invited to the free event.

“this year’s summit will bring together the nation’s most prominent Republican and Democratic political strategists to explore how the president and the new congress can effectively work together to tackle the problems facing the nation,” carville says. in addition to remarks by carville and Matalin, the summit will feature panel discussions with leading strategists and analysts from both political parties, including Whit Ayres, Dan Bartlett, Paul Begala, tony Blankley, Lanny Davis, Matthew Dowd, ed Gillespie, Stan Greenberg, Karen Hughes, New orleans native Walter isaacson, Kathleen Koch, Joe Lockhart, Mark McKinnon, Kiki McLean, Steve McMahon, Hilary rosen and Steve Schmidt. Nbc’s Betsy Fischer, Politico’s Jonathan Martin and The New York Times’ Kate Zernike also will participate in the summit.

the bpc (www.bipartisanpolicy.org) was founded in 2007 by former Senate Majority leaders Howard Baker, tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell to demonstrate that consensus can be achieved on difficult policy issues. currently, the bpc leads efforts on health care, energy, national and homeland security, economic policy and transportation. the summit will begin at 10 a.m. on Nov. 9 in the Kendall cram Room of tulane University’s lavin-bernick center. the seminars continue through 4:30 p.m. A bipartisan poll by Democracy corps and Resurgent Republic also will be released at the summit. the poll will analyze the recent midterm election results and examine what those results mean for the 2012 election. for a full summit agenda, visit: www.bipartisanpolicy.org/nola2010. — Clancy DuBos

Rolfe MccolliSteR, pUbliSheR of The Baton Rouge Business Report and a good barometer of what that city’s conservative-religious vote is thinking, is backing Dardenne, who has been criticized by some on the far right for being too moderate. “[fayard] seems to want to keep people from learning she’s a Democrat and says ‘parties or labels’ don’t matter, [but] her record of support for one party — Democratic — is also pretty impressive,” Mccollister wrote in a recent editorial. “i have rarely met a Democrat who doesn’t think more government or more spending will somehow solve our problems. And that is certainly true of (former president bill) clinton and (president barack) obama. Seems like fayard has a lot of respect for the kind of ‘career politicians’ she criticizes.” Dardenne, at 56, clearly tips the scales in his own favor when it comes to experience. but fayard, the daughter of highly successful plaintiff attorney and noted Democratic financier calvin fayard Jr. of Denham Springs (and, more recently, New orleans), has ample loot. in addition to her family’s wealth, fayard got some seed money from a summer fundraiser in New York city hosted by former pres-ident clinton. More recently, the louisiana Democratic party stepped forward to bankroll a $200,000 ad buy. fayard has raised another $35,000 in individual contributions since oct. 2, while Dardenne has pulled in more than $153,000. fayard outspent Dardenne on election Day by a margin of $29,600 to $4,800. She likewise surpassed his media buy. that trend is expected to continue through the Nov. 2 general election. Given fayard’s fundraising edge and

despite Dardenne’s clear advantage in experience — and not to mention his firstplace finish on oct. 2 (by a margin of 28 percent to fayard’s 24 percent) — nobody in the political arena was surprised to see Dardenne to go negative early in the runoff. his statewide blast pegged fayard as a “liberal Democrat” who supports gay marriage and opposes the death penalty. it also suggests that “bill clinton advises her” and that her campaign’s loot comes from her “rich trial lawyer father and his rich trial lawyer friends.” the ad goes on to call fayard an “obama Democrat” who donated money to a variety of Democratic politicos ranging from former state Sen. cleo fields of baton Rouge to ex-congressman bill Jefferson of New orleans, the latter of whom was convicted of federal bribery charges in Virginia. there’s a snide suggestion at the end of Dardenne’s ad that it’s only the first of many volleys. “there’s more,” the voiceover intones, “but we’re out of time.” Monica pierre, fayard’s press secretary, offered a brief statement in response to the radio ad. “it is what you would expect from a 23-year career politician to attack in this way,” pierre says. “We are continuing our efforts to speak to voters around the state and focus on the issues that are most important to louisiana.” With the money she got from the state party, fayard is running a commercial statewide called “What i believe,” a soft and fluffy intro-to-the-voters spot. Dardenne’s tV ad closely mimics his radio attack spot.

Halloween on the Bayou he 1978 slasher film classic Halloween tells the story of a young boy who killed his sister, was committed to an asylum and then escaped years later to stalk and slash babysitters — and his family. In Louisiana politics, we could write a companion series based on Gov. Bobby Jindal’s approach to the higher-ed budget: Bayou Halloween: Jindal’s Curse. In the original, the slasher is driven by madness to kill members of his family. In Louisiana, Jindal is driven by a political madness to slash budgets rather than lose his “tax virginity.” For Jindal, an Ivy Leaguer and Rhodes Scholar, cutting hundreds of millions of dollars from higher education is the fiscal equivalent of killing one’s family. You would think that a highly educated governor would make higher education the last budget to be slashed. Of course, that would require that he put higher education ahead of his political ambitions and “tax virginity.” Here’s Jindal’s record on state support for higher education:

T

ra Celeb ting

• He has cut public colleges and universities by $208 million since 2008. • Last week, he received plans to cut another $35 million from higher ed in the current fiscal year. Most of those cuts will come from the LSU system, which, coincidentally, provided the impetus for his parents to emigrate from India. His mother attended LSU as a doctoral student. • In the coming fiscal year (the one that starts next July 1), colleges and universities are bracing for another $290 million — or more — in Jindal-ordered cuts. That’s a total of more than half a billion dollars in cuts to higher education from a guy who arguably is the best-educated governor Louisiana has ever had. It just goes to show that the value of a good education isn’t what it used to be. Not, at least, when it collides with personal ambition. In the Halloween movie series, the killer wears a cheesy mask that, it turns out, was the result of a low budget for the original film. It became a hallmark of the slasher character. In the Louisiana version of the horror tale, Jindal wears a mask as well: that of a disciplined budget

reformer who’s determined to “hold the line against taxes.” I’m all for holding the line against taxes. But slashing higher-ed budgets disproportionately is hardly a show of fiscal discipline — or responsibility. While it’s true that constitutional and statutory provisions limit the areas in state government that can be cut — mostly to higher ed and health care — it’s equally true that tough times require a governor to have the boldness to chart a more responsible fiscal course.

Jindal has many wonderful qualities, but “boldness” is not among them. His reaction to the coming fiscal crisis is to ask others to come up with ideas. He offers none of his own. In a touch of great theater, the student body president of LSU recently penned a letter to newspapers in New Hampshire, Florida, Wisconsin and Iowa asking that our governor return home to take care of his own state. Jindal traveled to those states recently to raise money. Coincidentally, those are all key states in the GOP presidential primary process — the one Jindal claims he’s not interested in. “On behalf of the students whose hopes for a brighter future will soon be crushed, I beg you to return to Louisiana and fix your state’s serious problems,” wrote J Hudson, a senior in political science and communications. “You’ve neglected your constituents long enough.” Just as in the original Halloween, a member of the slasher’s own “family” has to find the will to pull off his mask. To be continued.

Owners

Erica Adams and Amy Henry Centola started Two Sprouts five years ago when the advertising agency where they worked closed following Hurricane Katrina. Their new venture started small, with just a paper line and a few holiday cards, but has grown into a thriving invitation, stationery and apparel business with a customer base that is expanding nationwide. The unique hand-drawn illustrations by artist and co-owner Amy Henry Centola sets Two Sprouts’ merchandise apart from other lines. The company prides itself on personal service as well as a commitment to use local vendors for production. By the end of this year, the company’s invitations and photo cards will be produced

Rosie the Riveter, that powerful image of women in the workforce, hangs in a showroom with business books. Everyone is welcome at Maple Street Book Shop, but local women have always owned and operated the store through its various incarnations. In 1964, Mary Kellogg and her sister Rhoda Norman opened the shop, which was handed down to Kellogg’s daughter Rhoda Faust, then transferred to Donna Allen three years ago. Throughout the shop’s history, we have hosted women authors from near and far, including Anne Rice, Chris Wiltz, Sue Grafton and Madeleine L’Engle.

Donna Allen

Kelli R. Brooks knows how to help people reach their fitness goals. As a trainer at the New Orleans Athletic Club and a private personal trainer, she customizes routines to help her clients lose weight, tone muscles, strengthen their cardiovascular systems and achieve other goals. Her fitness clients range from youth to 70 years old. For older folks, she prescribes movements to increase their range of motion and core-strengthening exercises to promote overall balance, flexibility and stability. Brooks says she changes up fitness routines to incorporate martial arts exercises, boot campstyle workouts, weight training, yoga, exercises focusing on specific problem areas and more. Changing the routines helps the body learn to quickly adapt to any exercise regimen, she says, thereby avoiding the plateau where your progress flattens that often results when a person follows the same routine daily. She also offers pre- and post-natal fitness training in clients’ homes, works with brides who want to get fit before their weddings, does injury-prevention workouts for seniors, trains competitive athletes, teaches kickboxing and self-defense, conducts group boot camps and does rehabilitation therapies. Brooks has experience working with children, adults and seniors with special needs as well. “I want to assist my clients in creating a healthier and happier life,” says Brooks, who was certified as a personal trainer the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America in 1993. “I will design a fitness program that will increase their energy, build their confidence, reduce stress and help them meet their individual goals.” Much of her experience — which includes nutrition and weight loss counseling, improving health through lifestyle and diet modifications, and muscle gain, development and toning — stems from her own journey to fitness. Brooks once weighed 300 pounds and coached herself into losing 175 pounds and changing her habits. Since then, she has competed in several triathlons; spent three years in mixed martial arts training, including karate, Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu; has become

o 24-year-old Florence Welch, the U.K. chart topper who’s in the throes of a U.S. takeover, success is relative. “It’s funny because you can be successful in one field, but I still live with my mom because I haven’t had time to move out,” she tells Gambit. “So there are 24-year-olds out there who are really starting their careers, moving out and being grown-ups and, in some way, I still feel like I haven’t really made that step yet. So I’m kind of an unsuccessful 24-year-old in that way.” Welch is doing just fine. The London native and her semi-permanent backing band, which performs under the name Florence + the Machine, earned both critical acclaim and respectable album sales with 2009’s eclectic Lungs (Island Records), which topped the U.K. Albums Chart, published in Music Week magazine, in January after spending 33 consecutive weeks in the top 10. Meanwhile across the pond, Welch’s music was popping up in movie soundtracks (Jennifer’s Body) and TV shows (Gossip Girl, United States of Tara and many others) and was

leggy, nearly 6-foot-tall redhead with impeccable fashion sense — she described it in an interview as “Lady of Shalott meets Ophelia … mixed with scary gothic bat lady” — that has style blogs and magazines abuzz. Reeling from a post-VMA recharge of fame in the United States — Lungs jumped to the top of the Billboard and iTunes album charts following her performance — Welch is making the press and television rounds, recently chatting with Ellen DeGeneres and brushing rhinestone-studded shoulders with Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino on Dancing With the Stars (she was there to perform “Dog Days,” not the tango) while also touring. In anticipation of her performance at City Park Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Voodoo Music Experience, the surprisingly soft-spoken Brit spoke to Gambit. PAGE 21

given the nod of approval by discriminating tastemakers Pitchfork ((Lungs earned a 7.2 on the site). Florence’s popularity spiked after Lungs’ exuberant lead single “Dog Days Are Over” appeared in the ubiquitous trailer for the book club favorite-turned-Julia Roberts vehicle Eat Pray Love, but Welch’s performance on MTV’s Video Music Awards in September solidified her position as The One to Watch. Amid pop cartoons Ke$ha and Lady Gaga — clad in black garbage bags and skirt steak, respectively — Welch was refreshingly free of gimmicks, letting her striking voice trump the theatrics. (Theatrics were not in short supply however, as her performance featured a stage of interpretive dancers backed with a gospel choir.) It also helps that she’s a

GAMBIT: THERE’S BEEN INCREASED INTEREST IN YOU AND YOUR MUSIC IN THE U.S. SINCE YOU PERFORMED ON THE VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS. HOW HAVE THINGS BEEN SINCE THEN? Welch: The VMAs were always going to be a platform, really. I’m just glad it went well and people seemed to respond pretty well to the music. It was either going to work or, you know, it wasn’t. So it seems to have worked. It’s great. I’m happy it’s gone so well.

together … with the beautiful landscape shots and the colors with it. I’m really a visual person and ... I’m always interested to see what people think will go with the music because in some way, when you’re writing music, you’re trying to create a picture or landscape in someone’s head and kind of see what people think your music goes with. I mean, sometimes it’s just completely wrong. And I always say no. (laughs)

YOU TALKED IN AN INTERVIEW WITH THE NEW YORK POST ABOUT CRYING AND NOT SLEEPING BECAUSE OF NERVES BEFORE THE VMAS. YOU’VE PERFORMED AT AWARDS SHOWS AND ON TELEVISION BEFORE — WHAT ABOUT THE VMAS GOT YOU SO NERVOUS? I think just because it’s a kind of do-or-die moment. It’s like it’s either going to go really fantastically well, or it’s going to completely mess up, and there’s no real room for error, and it’s so ofthe-moment. You really have to give it your all, and it’s only like, 2 minutes. It’s like the biggest challenge, and at the same time you have to overcome these nerves. I think the fact that it’s being beamed out to so many people and it was in front of all my peers and other musicians, it was like, of course it’s nerve-wracking!

HAVE YOU VISITED NEW ORLEANS BEFORE? I’ve never been. I’m so excited. I’m coming up three days early before the festival so I can explore.

YOUR SONGS HAVE APPEARED IN MOVIES AND TV SHOWS, MOST NOTABLY IN THE TRAILER FOR EAT PRAY LOVE. WHAT’S IT LIKE HEARING YOUR SONGS IN OTHER CONTEXTS? It’s quite nice, actually, because I think if you see something and the visual seems to work really well with the song — that’s kind of how I got involved in the Eat Pray Love trailer. I didn’t really know much about the film or the book, but when they showed me the trailer and put the music to it, it seemed to work really well

YOU PERFORM AT A LOT OF FESTIVALS. WHAT IS IT ABOUT FESTIVALS THAT YOU LIKE? I think it’s just the atmosphere, you know, something about the band there and … everyone’s just kind of up for it and up for having a good time and, you know, once you’re done you get to hang out — because when you’re a musician, your friends are people you meet on the road and at festivals, and it’s always a big reunion with bands you’ve toured with or bands you’ve played with at other festivals. It’s just really fun to kind of hang out. ARE THERE ANY BANDS YOU’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING AT VOODOO? Yes! MGMT, Drake and Ozzy Osbourne are going to be there, which is the most amazing lineup! DO YOU USUALLY GET A CHANCE TO WATCH OTHERS’ PERFORMANCES AT FESTIVALS? I love to watch other performances. It’s really important to watch other performances and other musicians play because it’s inspiring. I think watching other people perform makes you realize that yeah, you love doing that, as well. If you really love the support band (that’s playing with you) it’s great, because you get to

HOW DID YOU FEEL AFTER YOU FINISHED THE PERFORMANCE? WERE YOU RELIEVED? I was so relieved. I ran down the corridor screaming. We all ran back to the dressing room, and me and my manager and the makeup lady and all my friends, we were there just jumping up and down, just because I was so happy I hadn’t fallen over or forgotten a word.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC PLANS OR THINGS YOU WANT TO DO? We’ve got a friend who lives down there, so he’s going to come show us the ropes. I’ve heard they’ve got a really amazing dance scene, so I want to go to dance clubs.

watch your favorite band every night. And that’s why we always choose support bands we love, like we have The Drums, The xx, Babe Shadow. That’s something that’s great about it, and you all become friends. Everyone kind of inspires each other. BESIDES BEING KNOWN FOR YOUR MUSIC, YOU’RE ALSO KNOWN FOR YOUR FASHION. DO YOU THINK THE TWO THINGS HAVE A RELATIONSHIP? Definitely. Because you’re representing your music, it’s just another way to express yourself when you’re on stage. The more experimental the music, the bigger the stage, the most experimental my outfits are.

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > OCTOBER 26 > 2010

CAN YOU GIVE US A HINT ABOUT WHAT’S IN STORE FOR VOODOO FEST? DO YOU HAVE YOUR OUTFITS PICKED OUT? CAN WE EXPECT A THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE? I don’t know, I haven’t gotten quite down to thinking about outfits yet. I’m not quite sure. I’m a huge fan of vintage stage wear, so it might be something long and flowy and vintage. Or, you know, it could go completely the other way and I could be in a leather bat costume. It depends on what the weather’s like, I guess.

YEAH, SINCE IT’S NEW ORLEANS, IT MIGHT BE HOT. I’m thinking something long and flowy. I think it’s good to wear things that kind of flow around with you on stage and kind of perform with you. I can’t sort of say it’s going to be theatrical. It is what it is. It’s about expressing the emotion in each song. And it’s about really connecting with the people, and getting the audience involved, and you want to try to make each person in the audience feel like you’re performing for just them, but at the same time you want to make everyone feel like they’re together. That’s kind of what I want to do when I’m performing. It’s nice to feel like you’re all in it together. You want to feel like you, the band and the audience are all connected and having this experience. It sounds kind of hippie, but you know (laughs). And just to be kind of free and experimental and to not feel restrained, and I want to encourage people in the audience to feel that way as well — to let themselves go

and I think, especially with me doing that on stage, it encourages people to let go. I think people don’t need much persuading. We’re probably going to play new material as well. ARE YOU WORKING ON A NEW ALBUM RIGHT NOW? Yeah, we were doing some writing just before I came out here (to Los Angeles), actually. We were in Soho, which was kind of distracting, because Soho’s the hub of London, so every time I step outside the door I always end up getting lost in Soho for a half an hour. But it’s fun. At least it’s always inspirational. LUNGS HAS A RANGE OF DIFFERENT SOUNDS — “KISS WITH A FIST,” FOR INSTANCE, SOUNDS A LOT DIFFERENT THAN MOST OF THE OTHER SONGS ON THERE. HAVE YOU FIGURED OUT WHAT YOUR SOUND IS, OR WILL THE NEXT ALBUM ALSO BE ECLECTIC? Well, I think this album, so far, is just moving forward. I think with the first album, some of it was written when I was 18, some was written when I was 22, and I had gone through a real musical sort of evolution in a way. I kind of moved from one style to the next. I honestly couldn’t tell you what I’m going to do next, because it happens quite naturally. Nothing is really planned. It’s just kind of whatever I’m interested in then. WHEN YOU FIRST STARTED TOURING IN AMERICA, HOW WAS IT, SINCE AUDIENCES HERE WERE LESS FAMILIAR WITH YOU THAN IN THE U.K.? I love performing and playing live shows, and that’s how I made my name in England. I was gigging in pubs and clubs with an acoustic guitar for like a year, so that’s kind of how I built up a fan base where record labels started to get interested in me. So performing live is really what it’s all about for me. I’m glad I got the opportunity to come over here and do that. Obviously I didn’t have a year to troll the pubs and clubs, but what’s really exciting about the VMAs now is that people are interested and they’ll come and see the show live. I think that’s where you really understand what the album’s about.

Recycles All: Rebuilding Together New Orleans volunteers help restore a home in Broadmoor. “What it comes down to is, how energy efficient is a house?” she says. Landfills gather construction materials, resources like trees disappear to be used for construction, and new materials like solar panels and efficient water heaters are factory made. Right off the bat, a new home already has a footprint. Gay agrees with Perkins that despite restrictions in building codes and historic guidelines, everything needed to build green is available without starting from scratch. “Just by living in an old neighborhood close to where you work and your grocery store, you’re doing something for the environment,” she says.

guidelines. New Orleans roofs traditionally are black or dark gray, which attracts heat into the home and overworks air-conditioning units. Perkins recommends “solar” shingles and galvanized roofs that deflect heat rather than absorb it. Perkins also recommends thin-film solar strips for some roofs, though any solar installations have to be hidden from street view. “So even in the most important (historic) buildings, we probably have a solution that works, and we definitely advocate for it,” he says. The HDLC guidelines for maintenance and roofing also are available on its website. Patricia Gay, executive director of the Preservation Resource Center (PRC), says if one looks at energy efficiency holistically in considering the environment, homeowners in historic communities are doing their part just by filling existing neighborhoods and avoiding suburban sprawl. “Our most important work, when it comes to the environment, is saving historic buildings and filling up our neighborhoods the way they used to be,” Gay says. The PRC partners with Rebuilding Together New Orleans and its Deconstruction and Salvage Program to repair New Orleans homes and salvage useable materials from older, deconstructed properties. The center’s Salvage Store serves as a home base for those materials; instead of homeowners buying new stuff, they can find replacements and make repairs as a low-cost, greener alternative.

DEaD ZonE in ChanDElEurs

The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation confirmed last week that a 250-mile “dead zone” has formed near the Chandeleur Islands. The effect, known as hypoxia, occurs when dissolved oxygen in the water decreases to a point where it can’t support life. The group found evidence a dead zone was forming in 2008, but when the group partnered with the Marine Research and Assistance Council earlier this year to conduct water-quality monitoring, they found a low dissolved oxygen area within 10 to 24 feet below the surface where the water is 23 percent saltier than shallow water. The groups presume the dead zone developed between May and July — which coincides with the BP oil disaster. The groups will continue monitoring the area through 2011 to determine the environmental impact of the Chandeleur Sound dead zone. The next survey is planned this month. — Alex Woodward

ou don’t have to own a farm in the country to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs or raise chickens and bees. You just need to learn some basics and find out what’s available. That’s where New Orleans Food and Farm Network (NOFFN) (864-2009; www.noffn.org) comes in. NOFFN is a network of organizations and people involved in urban farming, but it also is a hands-on group that holds informational sessions and helps individuals, communities and schools install vegetable gardens. “We are a food accessibility organization,” says Ariel Wallick Dorfman, an urban agriculturalist and NOFFN educator. “The goal is to work with other partner organizations, community groups and individuals as a network to increase access to healthy, locally grown, sustainable foods.” The network, founded after Hurricane Katrina, seeks to increase the number of growers in the New Orleans area and optimize the yields of urban agriculture, whether growers are raising crops to sell or are backyard gardeners interested in producing at least some of the food they normally would buy at a market. “There clearly are economic benefits,” Dorfman says. “It’s much less expensive to grow your own seasonal produce. There also are tremendous health benefits, particularly when you are using sustainable practices. The food is grown closer to home, so it hasn’t traveled so far (as produce that comes from California or other countries). It’s pretty much the freshest food possible. As long as your soil is healthy, you’re going to know what goes into the production of your vegetables.” In addition to teaching people how to farm, compost and use the compost to enrich soil, NOFFN shares resources, distributes information about food projects in the city and exchanges horticulture information with local growers. It helps identify places food can be found in a given area and works with neighborhoods to identify food needs and potential resources. The network also tries to steer public policy to ensure better access to healthy foods. Dorfman leads NOFFN’s seven-part

To start a garden you just need to stake out some space and make sure you start with healthy soil, Dorfman says. “Think about the soil first,” she says. “Instead of feeding your plants, it’s important to feed the soil. One of the easiest ways to do that is composting. By composting at home, you’re keeping trash from the landfill and turning it back into healthy soil that can be used in your garden. “Gardening gives everyone a closer relationship to the food they eat. It’s a very restorative process.”

On Nov. 4, the New Orleans City Council will officially dub the 7th Ward, Bywater, Marigny, St. Claude and St. Roch neighborhoods part of the ReUse District, which organizer Marissa Allweiss says is the first of its kind in the country. More than 20 organizations and businesses in those neighborhoods — including the Green Project, Plan B: New Orleans Community Bike Project, and the Preservation Salvage Store — specialize in reuse, recycling and salvage. These groups and the ReUse District also want to promote those ideas among residents and businesses in the neighborhoods. Visit www.thereusedistrict.org for more information. — Woodward

The Preservation Resource Center’s Preservation Salvage Store held its grand reopening last week after expansion and renovations. Reconstruction on the store started earlier this year. The nonprofit store opened in 2007 with the aid of Rebuilding Together New Orleans and serves as a storefront for affordable salvaged materials that otherwise would have ended up in landfills. Builders aiming for architectural preservation can find materials to help meet historic district guidelines and building codes. Its hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

A Good Rep t Southern Repertory Theater (The Shops at Canal Place, 365 Canal St., third ďŹ&#x201A;oor, 522-6545; www.southernrep.com), â&#x20AC;&#x153;we want theater to become the go-to option for arts entertainment, rather than the exception,â&#x20AC;? says artistic director Aimee Hayes. Founded in 1986 by playwright and scholar Rosary Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill, Southern Rep has dedicated itself to premiering local talent and new plays in New Orleans. Since then, 27 world premieres have unfolded on its stage. Hayes, who returned to New Orleans right before Hurricane Katrina after working as a freelance director in New York, has been the artistic director since 2008. Under her direction, Southern Rep has fostered numerous community partnerships within the New Orleans theater world. Hayes sees this as the staffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest accomplishment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finding new ways to work together makes the center strong,â&#x20AC;? Hayes says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In agreeing to join together rather than remain divided, we have helped rebuild the New Orleans community.â&#x20AC;? According to Hayes, unlike theater venues in some cities, Southern Rep views other arts institutions as team members rather than competitors. Southern Rep has collaborated with Le Chat Noir, Tulane University, Ashe Cultural Arts Center, Junebug Productions and others, creating what Hayes calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;a cultural collision of major arts institutions.â&#x20AC;? In their dedication to new play development and sup-

port of local playwrights, the Southern Rep team created three new programs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Playlab, The Crosstown Reading Series and 6x6, as well as a new award, The Ruby Prize. The award, which honors local civil rights veteran Ruby Bridges, recognizes a woman playwright of color with a $10,000 prize, a development workshop and a play reading in New York City. Southern Rep also offers acting classes for youth and adults throughout the year. Current and upcoming productions include Afterlife: A Ghost Story by Steve Yockey, directed by Hayes; Love Child by Daniel Jenkins and Robert Stanton; and the world premiere of Running with Scissors. According to the six main staff members, a vital goal of their diligent and sometimes stressful work is for everyone to have fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are most satisďŹ ed when we have fun while working to excel and entertain,â&#x20AC;? Hayes says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live in a theater culture that reďŹ&#x201A;ects our city of New Orleans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a combination of hard work and good times.â&#x20AC;?

charges and Bright was released. While his ordeal is both amazing and outrageous, Lara Naughton, a writing instructor at NOCCA, heard the voice of a great storyteller. She met him while working with the Resurrection After Exoneration project and later approached him about turning his story into a one-man play. “Greg is open and willing to share his experiences,” Naughton says. “He believes his story is relevant to more than just wrongful conviction. He believes in the transformative power of forgiveness. That’s important: the growth from anger to forgiveness.” Over more than two years, she interviewed Bright extensively about his life. She wanted the piece to be accurate, both factually and emotionally, and she made him retell some stories many times to get at their deeper meanings and impact. She estimates she asked him about his mother’s death more than 20 times, and the repetition was sometimes difficult for Bright. “That was one of the two fears I had,” he says. “I didn’t want to die in jail, and I didn’t want my mother to die while I was in prison for a crime I didn’t commit. That was the worst thing in the world.” From hundreds of pages of interviews, Naughton distilled the dialogue for the show. She recruited Los Angeles-based actor and singer Charles Holt to perform the one-man piece, and he’ll tour with it. In January, when it opens at Rhodes College in Memphis, Bright will finally have spent more of his life outside of prison than inside.

hile Gregory Bright’s 1975 wrongful conviction for murder took all of 12 minutes for a jury to deliberate, his path to exoneration took years of determination and patience, including learning to read while in jail, figuring out the legal system and pushing his challenge as far as the Louisiana Supreme Court. In June 2003, he was released after more than 27 years in jail, most of it at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. That odyssey is the subject of the one-man show Never Fight a Shark in Water, which premieres at New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA) this week, on the 35th anniversary of the murder for which he was falsely blamed. “A lot of people are fascinated by the story, but I am just a local guy who had no money, no contacts and got caught in the system,” Bright says. “It’s not a level playing field. That’s what a guy at Angola used to say to me: You’re fighting a shark in water. You have to get him on dry land.” Bright and a man he did not know were both convicted of second-degree murder based on the testimony of one person who had not witnessed the crime. There was no physical evidence, documents were withheld from the defense and the police tipster who testified had a history of mental illness — and had multiple aliases and claimed birth dates. When the conviction was finally overturned and a new trial scheduled, thenNew Orleans District Attorney Eddie Jordan dropped the

I don’t like to sit down and diagram my songs.” But sampling and performance are different skills altogether. “I can play it once pretty well,” Dear jokes. “There’s moments where I hit the wrong string. It’s fun. I definitely get better with each show. The guys are all amazing. They’re better musicians. They help me keep my job.” Dance and rock crowds differ, too, he says: “I find myself closing my eyes and getting lost in the show. I think I perform better if I feel like I’m in my studio rather than onstage. When you’re DJing, people just close their eyes and dance, and they lose themselves in the music. Now people just cross their arms and stare at you. They could really be enjoying it, too, but they’re not going to act like they are.” No one’s expressed disappointment with this other side of Dear. Not openly, at least. “I’m sure people get surprised,” he says. “But we haven’t been met with any bottles onstage or tomatoes or anything, though we had some cherry tomatoes in our dressing room last night, and we brought them onstage during sound check. I thought it would be funny to reverse it, maybe throw some tomatoes at the audience: ‘Start dancing!’”

hose who only know Matthew Dear from his prodigious techno tracks as Audion, or his club-clattering work as an international house DJ, may be in for a surprise when they walk into the Howlin’ Wolf and see guitars, trumpets and a drum kit onstage. Dear says it’s a common occurrence on the current tour, which includes stops in several cities — from Hamilton, Ontario, to New Orleans — getting their first glimpse of the electronic artist’s organic new look. “In Toronto, people were like, ‘I didn’t know what you were going to do — I thought you were DJing,’” he says. “I have friends in Toronto that knew I was coming, and they didn’t know what I was going to do. … This tour, and this band, it’s a bit more subdued, more moody. There’s some moments where we make it energetic, but it’s definitely more of a rock-influenced set.” A co-founder and cog of the dance music imprints Ghostly International and Spectral Sound, Dear pulled something of a Dylan-at-Newport in reverse with 2007’s Asa Breed (Ghostly), releasing an album that put spectral, multi-tracked vocals and varied instrumentation on an even plane with his trademark glitchy ticks and production tricks. The 10 head-spinning tracks on sister album Black City, issued in August, were created in very much the same vein — solo, in Dear’s New York City home studio — and had to undergo the same metamorphosis for performance by Dear’s band, the Big Hands. “They take on a new life live,” he says. “I don’t have a (drum) kit in the studio, so it’s a lot of sampling and resampling, me jumping around, doing everything myself. Fleshing it out live, it’s deconstructing the songs and reinterpreting them for a live format. It’s really fun to play around with new ideas, adding things that weren’t there in the beginning.” Those songs begin life as audio embryos; a single beat or vocal scat could become an Audion banger or a Big Hands brooder, Dear says. “Slowdance,” for example, might have ended up a dance track. But then he “sampled it, and looped it, and slowed it down by about 10 or 15 bpm. All of a sudden it takes on a lower-pitched, slower rhythm that lends itself to becoming more of a vocal ballad of sorts.” Dear never quite knows where it’s

After a lifetime of artistic output, even Van Dyke Parksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biggest fans barely know the man. His fantastical story is the kind more often seen in ďŹ ctional characters than in living, breathing human beings: as a child, a musical wunderkind and star of stage and screen; once grown, an eccentric, deity-touched session player, scorer, producer and singer/ songwriter skirting the fringes of fame for more than four decades. Perhaps in some parallel universe, his madcap compositional theatrics â&#x20AC;&#x201D; dabbling in classical, folk, pop, Tin Pan Alley, Broadway show tunes, and several genres taxonomists are still sweating over â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are getting toasted by the masses in the same hoist as Mozart, Dylan, Wilson, Gershwin and Webber. In this one, oddly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his accenting gigs for which heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accredited: Brian Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyricist and labor-pain lightning rod on the 459-month Smile delivery, or Joanna Newsomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baton-wielding Leonard Bernstein for 2006â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s divisive, strings-hamstrung medieval faerie tale Ys. The 67-year-old is touring and sharing the stage with his favorite fey Brooklyn pop band, Clare and the Reasons, whose 2007 debut The Movie features contributions from Parks. Tickets $20. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Noah Bonaparte Pais

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art screens the German silent horror film Nosferatu: Eine Symphonie des Grauens (Symphony of Horror). Similar to its presentation of the director’s cut of Deliverance with live musical accompaniment (by cellist Helen Gillet and Clint Maedgen), the screening will be complemented by Austin, Texas, composer Graham Reynolds, who has scored films including Richard Linklater’s animated adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s A Scanner Darkly and leads the band Golden Arm Trio. Director Friederich Murnau had made a couple of earlier horror films delving into what would become the German Expressionist style. Nosferatu is based on Bram Stroker’s Dracula, but Murnau and his studio (Prana) never attained rights to make an adaptation and the studio had problems distributing it. But it is the oldest surviving Dracula film and is a classic work of dark romanticism. In it, Count Orlok (Dracula) seeks to buy a property away from his mountain castle. When, in a photograph, he sees the beautiful neck of the wife of the envoy sent with the papers, he becomes very interested in the home. Death follows the envoy back to his town, and the authorities blame the plague before many are aware of the peculiar thirst and nightlife preferences of their new neighbor. Tickets $10 general admission, $5 Ogden members. — Will Coviello

Ray Curtis PEOPLES HEALTH CHAMPION

®

HBO’s TREME Spotlight on Music

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > OCTOBER 26 > 2010

On May 2, 2009, at age 76, Raymond Curtis established four new American records at the USA Masters Powerlifting Championships in St. Louis. His individual deadlift, squat and bench press weights broke all previous records, as did his combined total for all three events. Ray’s success earned him a coveted invitation to join the United States team at the World Masters competition four months later in the Czech Republic. While Ray did not set another new record at the World Masters last year, he qualified yet again to join the U.S. powerlifting team at the World Masters this year. Now 77, he has powerlifted increasingly heavier weights every year since he was first introduced to the sport. In the last year, he increased his lifts by 100 pounds. And in case you’re curious… Ray Curtis first started powerlifting when he was 69.

44

Along his way to breaking records, Ray Curtis has shattered some myths about aging and physical performance. Myths like how our bodies will inevitably start to deteriorate in our forties, and that it’s impossible to build muscle mass past our fifties. Ray Curtis is living proof that people can increase their physical strength and endurance at any age, if only they have the will and determination to succeed. And lest you think that Ray’s success might be the result of performance enhancing drugs, you should know that Ray and the Powerlifting Federation are committed to a drug-free sport.

“I’m 77 years old and as strong as I am now, I can’t wait to see how strong I’ll be in another decade.” – Ray Curtis –

Some people will be thrilled by Ray’s success, inspired by the realization that our ability to achieve never wanes. Others might be somewhat concerned at the possibility of losing “I’m too old” as a convenient and reliable excuse for not living life to its fullest. Whether your approach to life is a half full cup or one that’s half empty, it’s nice to know someone like Ray Curtis, who can’t seem to keep his darn cup from overflowing. Ray Curtis… Peoples Health Champion.

www.peopleshealth.com/champions The Peoples Health Champions program demonstrates the excellence that comes through life experience by recognizing exceptional achievement after age 65.

Cultural Fabric

Featuring work made between 1978 and 2003, Willie Birch’s Looking Back expo provides a fairly comprehensive sense of what this 67-year-old AfricanAmerican artist has been doing for the past few decades. It’s a journey that took him from living in the Magnolia housing project as a boy to having his work in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art among other institutions and awards including a Guggenheim fellowship along the way. That is heady stuff, but Birch has always remained true to his roots, using his art to celebrate the culture of the back streets and their Afro-Caribbean vibe. Even his New York-period work vibrates with colors that seem local, building on his more abstract pieces of the 1970s, which often read like a lexicon of glyphs from African fabric patterns. He took a turn toward folk art in the 1980s in works like The Last Goodbye, a painting of a funeral in which the colors and forms evoke the rhythms of inner city life and the folksy style fits neatly with the folksy subjects. More recently, he reduced his palette to black, white and gray in works like Evoking the Orishas (pictured) which conveys the incantatory rhythms of a voodoo ritual. In art as in life, Birch is a populist who celebrates the transcendent spirit of even his most prosaic subjects. Afro-Caribbean culture also profoundly influenced Paul Ninas, a white man who was one of the more influential New Orleans artists of the mid-20th century. A Midwesterner who spent his early adult years in the West Indies, Ninas found a similar culture in the New Orleans area, where he spent the rest of his life. In these works on paper, his drawings of Caribbean people flow seamlessly into later paintings like Back Bay Biloxi, where staccato forms convey the primal rhythms of places where nature is strong and the natives are necessarily tough and resilient. — D.

OVERSTOCKED INVENTORY

Cold Blooded

Frozen may sound like a dreary evening of theater: The three-character drama features a mother whose young daughter was raped and killed, the serial killer responsible and a psychiatrist studying serial killers. But Bryony Lavery’s Tony Award-nominated play is a fascinating account of three people caught in a web of violation. The production is pure theater. There are no decorative details, just the words and acting. For much of the play, one or two characters sit silently while the others do a scene or deliver a monologue. The abstract staging removes the drama from naturalism, but the characters and their dialogue are convincingly real. Under Glenn Meche’s skillful direction, the cast kept the audience spellbound Diana Shortes brought wry anguish to Nancy, the grieving mother. Nancy’s other daughter, now grown, travels to India and takes to speaking in mystical cliches. She proclaims her mother will never be free until she forgives Ralph’s horrible transgression. At first, Nancy finds the idea repugnant. The central question is whether Ralph (Keith Launey) can control his impulses. Or to put it another way, are his crimes a “sin” or a “symptom”? But control or no control, Ralph clings to a compulsive logic. He commits his murders in a dirt-floored shack where he also buries victims, and he brags that he never touches anything outside the center of his operations. The police catch Ralph by tracing the times and locations where he got his tattoos. After his incarceration, he becomes an object of study for Agnetha (Liz Mills), who is trying to understand what drives a mass murderer: childhood trauma, brain injury or other causes. Despite her scientific interest, she comes closest to having a real relationship with Ralph. A tip of the hat to everyone involved in this remarkable production. Hopefully Crescent Theatre Collective brings it back for a longer run. — Dalt Wonk stagedoorcanteen.org for details. 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 1 p.m. Sunday.

It was a pleasure dealing with Dr. Schmidt and his staff. They were professional, knowledgeable, and most of all, accommodating. I should have done this sooner." — Peter Hunly, New Orleans

VIETNAMESE COOKING CROPS UP ACROSS NEW ORLEANS NEIGHBORHOODS.

B Y I A N M C N U LT Y

alk into Lost Love Lounge any given night and you’ll find people draining beers, shooting pool and slurping big, steaming bowls of pho, the ambrosial Vietnamese beef soup. It’s part of the uncommon yet surprisingly apt late-night eating options at this Faubourg Marigny bar, which leases its connected restaurant space to the amusingly named Pho King (2529 Dauphine St., 944-2009). Since taking over the kitchen from a similar but shortlived operation this summer, Pho King proprietor Ariana Ybarra and cook Kim Vu have been proving just how well the characteristically fresh, light flavors of Vietnamese cooking can play the role of pub grub. From 6 p.m. until at least midnight, servers from Pho King shuttle bowls of cool rice noodle salads (called bun) and crusty banh mi packed with grilled pork or chicken to patrons in the dining room or perched at the bar. As the night progresses and hair metal cranks from the jukebox, orders of tofu spring rolls, grilled shrimp with jasmine rice and tempura-fried bananas keep rolling from the kitchen. A Marigny barroom is new territory for Vietnamese cooking. Not long ago, finding this type of food meant visiting restaurants clustered near the Vietnamese enclaves in eatern New Orleans or Gretna. Those are still the best destinations to experience local Vietnamese cooking in full bloom. But as the familiarity and popularity of this cuisine has grown, the opportunities for a taste of the casual standards — like spring rolls, banh mi, bun and pho — are proliferating around New Orleans neighborhoods and working their way closer to the mainstream. In addition to places openly devoted to Vietnamese cooking, more Vietnamese-run restaurants now split their menus between familiar Chinese fare and their own cuisine.

Carrollton Ave., 309-7283) follow this model, and Moon Wok (800 Dauphine St., 523-6950) has recently adopted the format as well. Corner stores and delis run by Vietnamese families have added take-out pho, bun and banh mi to their routine offerings of gumbo and plate lunches, though these new choices aren’t always obvious. Pass the ranks of beer coolers and aisles of junk food at Eat-Well Food Store (2700 Canal St., 821-7730) and you’ll find a sandwich counter serving first-rate banh mi bulging with Vietnamese cold cuts and pickled vegetables. Singleton’s Mini Mart (7446 Garfield St., 866-4741) in the Black Pearl neighborhood always has spring rolls wrapped and ready to go by the cash register, and bun and pho are served on Saturdays. Hand-written posters give instructions for how to properly garnish the soup and tout its powers as a hangover cure. Across town, Bywater Market (4400 St. Claude Ave., 948-8998) has the feel of a high security convenience store, but just ask and the women working behind the protective plastic barrier will ladle out pho by the quart from beside the steam table of turkey necks and red beans. Marigny Pho, the original kitchen tenant at Lost Love Lounge, is slated to reopen at a new address. After a brief stint serving his Vietnamese menu at the Cake Cafe & Bakery, Marigny Pho proprietor Chris Reel plans to reopen inside Marie’s Bar (2483 Burgundy St., 267-5869; www.marignypho. com), an unreconstructed dive just around the corner from Pho King. As Vietnamese cooking becomes more accessible in the city, it seems we’re even getting competing options in the same neighborhood.
