The federal Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 required Amtrak to submit a plan to do just that, but so far there’s been no movement.

After Katrina, NOrMAL held a concert featuring New Orleans music and sold CDs of the live show to raise money.

Coriolant met a 14-year-old girl in Florida and sent her back and forth between Orlando and the metro New Orleans area over several years to work as a prostitute. After witness testimony that included taped phone calls, Coriolant was convicted. He faces life in prison and a $250,000 fine at his December sentencing.

Leger, who serves as speaker pro tem of the Louisiana House of Representatives, says he’s eager to find ways for Louisiana to tap into the long-term goal of a high-speed rail linking Houston and Atlanta, but right now his priority is light rail lines serving New Orleans. Leger added that one project that may gain momentum during his tenure as commission chair involves a passenger line from New Orleans to Jacksonville, Fla. That line at one time was part of Amtrak’s Sunset Limited line, which stretched from Los Angeles to Jacksonville. It was abandoned in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, now stopping in New Orleans. Repairs have enabled the restoration of freight train traffic on the New Orleans-Jacksonville line, but Amtrak has not re-

Jamison Ross,

The Flora-Bama,

By Jeremy Alford f the goal of light rail is to take commuters from Point A to Point B and beyond, then New Orleans remains stuck at or just shy of Point A. But it’s not for lack of effort. Three years ago, as part of President Barack Obama’s stimulus package, the feds made money available to build a high-speed rail system between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Public and private groups responded quickly by commissioning studies and forming coalitions. Some state lawmakers got behind the idea as well. But Gov. Bobby Jindal had other ideas. With great pomp and pageantry, Jindal announced that the Bayou State didn’t need, or want, the rail line. Critics said Jindal’s chop block to the stimulus cash was based more on his own ideology and national ambitions than on Louisiana’s transportation needs. The announcement brought him bouquets from anti-Obama conservatives as he explained to Louisiana boosters that a high-speed rail system would cost the state $18 million annually — money he said Louisiana didn’t have — to operate the modern line at full capacity. Undaunted, nonprofits in the two cities trudged forward, eventually abandoning the high-speed concept for a commuter rail proposal that’s still being discussed. “High speed rail has become a hot-button political issue,” says state Rep. Walt Leger, D-New Orleans. “It just makes more sense to look at light rail.” Leger’s sentiments aren’t exclusive to Louisiana. Members of the Southern High-Speed Rail Commission, which includes members from Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, voted last month to change the group’s name to the Southern Rail Commission. The commission could be a major player in the coming months and years as plans for New Orleans rail lines continue to take shape. The agency has the ability to pull down millions in federal funds for studies and planning. Plus, more tellingly, Leger was recently elected as its new chairman.

urged Amtrak to look closely at the demographics and at the jobs available in New Orleans, for which commuters outside the region could use rail lines to obtain. There’s likewise a strong push coming from the East Coast, says Robert J. Stewart, chairman of the National Association of Railroad Passengers, a nonprofit advocacy group. “Passenger rail service between New Orleans and Jacksonville is a strategically important component of the national intercity passenger train system,” Stewart says. “This route segment will serve an unmet need by connecting Florida with the southern and western United States.” Then there’s the proposed line linking Baton Rouge and New Orleans, which could use existing tracks, at least in theory. For boosters, the war cry is a simple one. “Apart, the two cities are less competitive than they are together,” Leger says. “I hope this year we start to see some movement. I’ll certainly be focused on it.” A major feasibility study, for which money is already secured, is expected to be awarded in the coming months, but there have been serious gaps in the tracks of a proposed planning group. According to Huey Dugas, executive director of the Capital Region Planning Commission, his group and the New Orleans Metropolitan Planning Organization have each put up $105,000 for the study; the Baton Rouge Area Foundation has ponied up another $90,000. “We should see some action on that early next year,” Dugas says. The study’s most significant finding may be new information it reveals about the impact (and benefits) of adding service to Louis Armstrong International Airport. Supporters say it’s an aspect that has been ignored by previous talks about a possible New Orleans-Baton Rouge line.

Celebrating 140 Years

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > october 2 > 2012

The concept of a New Orleans-Baton Rouge line is not new, but movement on the Baton Rouge end is. In 2010 the state Legislature created the Louisiana Intrastate Rail Compact, which was supposed to serve as a political subdivision for two or more local governments to explore passenger rail. The New Orleans City Council immediately signed on and appointed members, but the Baton Rouge Metro Council still hasn’t acted. Some in Baton Rouge Mayor Kip Holden’s administration have quietly promised that a decision could be forthcoming, although backers, who have heard that line for years, remain skeptical about the Metro Council making a move. One of the major hurdles involves the parishes between the two cities. Supporters hope they’ll follow Baton Rouge into the compact. But requests for multiple stops in the River Parishes have created complications, sources say, as that could diminish the speed and effectiveness of the rail line. A 2009 study proposed six stops on the route: downtown Baton Rouge, southeast Baton Rouge, Gonzales, LaPlace, Kenner and downtown New Orleans. No doubt we’ll hear more about linking Baton Rouge and New Orleans in the coming months. The state Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has scheduled a public meeting in New Orleans Oct. 2 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Regional Transportation Management Center (10 Veterans Memorial Blvd.) and in Baton Rouge Oct. 3 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m (BREC Independence Park, 7505 Independence Blvd.). The goal, according to a DOTD press release, is to gather public input for the Louisiana State Rail Plan, which includes freight and passenger rail services. Leger advises keeping an eye on federal elections as well. “Right now there seems to be a commitment on the federal level for rail between Jacksonville and New Orleans. It’s also expected that Congress will take up a new transportation bill next year, and we are hoping to participate in that,” he says. “We have a tremendous amount of work ahead of us. We just need to continue building support.”

scuttlebutt Quotes of the week

• “You’re shaking hands with crooks.” — Former Jefferson Parish president Aaron Broussard outside federal court sept. 25, shaking the hand of a tourist who had approached him, asking why he was being pursued by news photographers. Broussard had just pleaded guilty to two counts of corruption — instead of the 27 counts he would have faced at trial. He will be sentenced in February. • “it’s why i came down here, because it’s such a robust environment for public corruption.” — Michael J. Anderson, who was named special agent in charge of the FBi’s New Orleans division in July. At a press conference after the Broussard pleading, U.s. Attorney Jim Letten said, “we are exposing and facing down corruption. we are becoming a very attractive place to do business.”

SOUTHERN DECADENCE PREACHERS GET COURT ORDER The New Orleans City Council will revisit the “aggressive solicitation” ordinance that prohibits “loiter[ing] or congregat[ing] on Bourbon street for the purpose of disseminating any social, political or religious message between the hours of sunset and sunrise,” according to court records filed last week in a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the local law. On sept. 21, U.s. District Court Judge Eldon Fallon placed a temporary restraining order — blocking enforcement

of the law — after two street preachers sued the city. The two lawsuits were later consolidated into one. A hearing, originally scheduled for Oct. 1, was canceled after a status conference last week, during which an attorney for the city said that council plans to amend the law “in order to address the concerns and issues raised by the plaintiffs in these two lawsuits,” according to a summary of the conference. — CHARLes MALDONADO

RICHARD WANTS TO REVIEW BUDGET CUTS state Rep. Jerome “Dee” Richard, i-Thibodaux, plans to submit a formal petition this week calling for a special legislative session to review hundreds of millions in budget cuts recently proposed or enacted by Gov. Bobby Jindal. in a phone interview with Gambit, Richard said the petition would likely go out Oct. 1. Last month, Richard sent an email to constituents and fellow legislators calling for the session. “since our adjournment in June, there has been almost a billion dollars in reductions to the state budget without any input from the Legislature. And thanks to some media outlets we are now learning of still more cuts to healthcare without any input from the Legislature,” the email reads. state law requires the signatures of one-third of the members of each house (35 representatives and 13 senators) for the petition to be considered and mailed out to all legislators. Richard said he was close to that mark. “i think we can get the 35 House members,” he said. “we’re kind of half and half sure that we’re going to get the 13 in the senate. But we’re going to concentrate on the House first.” For the session to convene, Richard will need to get a majority to sign the petition within 20 days of its release. — CHARLes MALDONADO

from the Department of Revenue made a sweep, checking for live entertainment permits. High-profile venues like The Circle Bar, siberia and Mimi’s in the Marigny canceled live performances. Last month, The Circle Bar received a permit. Last week, following meetings with city officials, siberia and Mimi’s received temporary permits, allowing them to resume their schedules while working with the city on permanent solutions. More than 100 people attended Ruffins’ sept. 26 meeting, which attempted to push City Hall to allow a grace period so venues can comply without losing revenue (or employees, or musicians, many of whom lost income from regular gigs). Scott Hutcheson, Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s advisor on the cultural economy, told the crowd, “Our office does three things: we permit, we protect and we enforce.” Gambit asked Hutcheson if City Planning Commission (CPC) staff would also be included in the conversation — along with Department of Revenue and Office of safety and Permits staff. “They have to,” Hutcheson said. while entertainment permits can be applied for and awarded, changes in zoning — which determines what properties can and cannot do — must first be approved by the CPC. Landrieu, who as lieutenant governor was also in charge of the state’s Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, moved quickly to respond to the criticism. A few hours after Ruffins’ meeting, Landrieu issued a statement correcting reports that the city shuttered Mimi’s (it did not — the bar never closed), adding, “i’ve instructed the city’s enforcement agencies to enforce the law fairly and to take a customer-friendly approach. This means that we offer assistance in securing the appropriate permits to businesses that have been offering live music for years. in most cases, the city does not need to immediately issue summonses or administrative subpoenas, if a business owner agrees to work actively to secure the required permits.” At the meeting, Ruffins also proposed an Oct. 24 march on City Hall with members of the Rebirth Brass Band and the Marsalis family, among others. Until then, he said, he’ll continue to hold weekly meetings at his club on wednesdays at lunchtime. — ALeX wOODwARD

commentary

thinking out loud

Stopping the Presses e Publish — Come Hell and High Water” was the slogan on T-shirts proudly worn by employees of The Times-Picayune after Hurricane Katrina. Many staffers there lost their homes and possessions in the federal floods that accompanied the storm, yet they never stopped working, bringing the story of our tragedy to the world and giving their fellow New Orleanians the news they desperately needed. In the painful months after Katrina, every issue of The Times-Picayune was a little piece of connective tissue binding a badly frayed city. For its efforts during and after Hurricane Katrina, several staffers won a 2006 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news reporting; equally important, the paper itself won a Pulitzer for public service that same year. Nothing, it seemed, could destroy the paper or its spirit. This year, the T-P celebrated its 175th anniversary. What Hurricane Katrina couldn’t do, the Newhouse family — which owns the paper — has now done. The Times-Picayune has completed its “digital transition,” moving the bulk of its resources online and putting out print editions three times a week. This past weekend marked the final days for many at the T-P, from the newsroom to the bureaus,

from the support offices to the pressroom. The transition has been wrenching, for both the city and the employees — the vast majority of whom didn’t learn the paper’s fate from their bosses, but from a story on The New York Times’ website in May. Since then, senior management at the T-P has produced a lot in the way of hot air and corporatespeak about the “robust” new enterprise, but very little information for either their employees or their loyal readers and advertisers — ironic, given that their business is communication. “If you were to come to our paper, you would see how much thoughtfulness” has gone into the changes, editor Jim Amoss said last week on WWL-TV. Few working for Amoss agree. Starting this week, we’ll see how much thought the new “digital media” company has put into the three-times-weekly print edition — but “thoughtfulness” is hardly the word that comes to mind regarding the 200 employees who lost their jobs. Many of them were thoroughly and unnecessarily disrespected in the process of being terminated, a claim that was confirmed by many of those who were offered jobs at the newly formed NOLA Media Group. When more retained employees than the

company expected sought — and found — employment elsewhere (a testament to the paper’s talent pool), the company was forced to reverse course, “un-firing” some of those they’d initially regarded as dispensable. Management’s callousness continued to the last week, when a sign was hung in the newsroom directing people to the prepress area “for those who may need boxes in the next few days.” This is simply not the way we treat each other in New Orleans. Most of management’s missteps (and that’s a charitable description) can be laid at the feet of new publisher Ricky Mathews, who comes to the paper from Alabama. It speaks volumes about his leadership and style going forward. Were the firings necessary? Only the Newhouse family can answer that, but the ill will created by this debacle resonates across a city that rightfully feels betrayed by out-of-town decisionmakers who have coldheartedly and ham-handedly torn apart a cherished institution. Paradoxically, the T-P’s decision to print less often could mean more news options for New Orleanians. The Advocate, Baton Rouge’s longtime daily newspaper, began distributing free samples of its new New

Orleans edition last week. The Advocate’s foray into New Orleans came in response to a local outcry over losing the T-P, publisher David Manship told Gambit. At a time when newspapers around the country are contracting, The Advocate’s expansion into our city is a bold move, and the Manship family should be applauded for giving New Orleanians the chance to continue their habit of a daily newspaper. There are other silver linings for local news lovers. WWL-TV snapped up two of the paper’s most talented reporters, David Hammer and Brendan McCarthy, who will continue to serve as local watchdogs. Local online news operations have formed new alliances or expanded their roles. And the people who are staying behind at The Times-Picayune stress that their commitment to hard-hitting independent journalism hasn’t changed, no matter the priorities of the new management there. The death of The Times-Picayune may be inevitable, but it didn’t have to happen this way. By disrespecting the people who worked so hard and so long to give New Orleans a daily paper of which it could be proud, the T-P’s owners and management disrespected the city itself.

Exit the Dragon ner against skip Galan, who lost that race to Broussard but beat him to the federal pen by more than two decades. Broussard served four terms as Kenner’s mayor before winning an at-large seat on the parish council in 1995. He served two terms on the council, then won the parish presidency in 2003. He resigned from that post in 2010 amid reports of the federal investigation that led to his conviction last week. At his best, Broussard was passionate, energetic, eminently quotable and often self-effacing. At his worst, he mastered the ropes of Jefferson’s political kleptocracy and played the game to his full selfish advantage. But dragon slayer? Not a chance. or dragon? He was never that strong or that ferocious. More likely, he was the one-eyed man in the land of the blind, a political snake oil salesman who succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. How did he get to be so successful? simple: over the years, he developed a singular ability to dissuade formidable potential opponents from running against him;

Aaron Broussard was the one-eyed man in the land of the blind, a political snake oil salesman who succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. failing that, he attracted opponents far less viable than he. Thus, after his rueful decision to evacuate pump operators in the face of Hurricane Katrina — a decision that many blamed for the floods in Metairie after the storm — he nonetheless managed to win re-election in 2007. That he sees himself as a dragon slayerturned-dragon speaks to his ego, the Achilles’ heel of many a shamed politician. The ancient Romans believed that in wine there is truth, and there’s much wisdom in that timeless maxim. For some, truth comes not in drink but in dishonor. After his plea, as he walked away from a bevy of reporters, Broussard encountered a tourist who wondered what all the fuss was about. Thinking he must be a

celebrity, she shook his hand and asked who he was. “Honey,” he replied, “you’re shaking the hand of a crook.” Going forward, it will be interesting to see what tales Broussard tells about his years in the belly of the beast. Hopefully, he’ll just stick to the truth and leave it to prosecutors and defense attorneys to sort the dragons from the dragon slayers.

aron Broussard’s laughable attempt to write his own political epitaph speaks volumes about the once-popular Jefferson Parish politician — and about many a fallen leader. “This might be my last quote,” he quipped to reporters last week on his way into federal court, where he pleaded guilty to two counts of corruption. “At 23 years old, I came into politics as a dragon slayer. At 63 years old, I’m going out as a dragon.”‬ I hope he didn’t stay up all night working on that one. It would be a shame to lose a good night’s sleep only to have so little to show for it. But isn’t it just like a disgraced politician to cast himself in larger-than-life terms? Truth is, Broussard was neither dragon slayer nor dragon. Ever. At 23, he entered Jefferson Parish politics as an ambitious huckster who was easy with a joke and a handshake — and a tireless campaigner. He won a seat on the parish school board in 1974. Less than four years later, he parlayed that into a seat on the parish council. In 1982, he waged a white-knuckle campaign for mayor of Ken-

Dear Ezekiel, Metairie may have been a swamp for almost 200 years, but development of the area began early in the 20th century. The credit goes to Jefferson Parish officials who began digging canals, draining swamps and building roads many years before the vast majority of the area was even populated. Parish officials publicly promoted the virtues of Jefferson Parish and encouraged new residents and businesses to move out of the city to a place where land was available and people could get more for their buck. From the first agricultural land grant in the early 1720s, Metairie was primarily farming, timbering and pastureland — until about 1916, when an extension of the Napoleon Avenue streetcar line was built along Metairie Road. Folks now had easier access to the area, which at the time (before cars and paved roads were everywhere) seemed far away. Equally important was construction of the Metairie Ridge pumping plant in 1916. Two enormous centrifugal pumps provided drainage for the area to the rear of Metairie Road extending to Lake Pontchartrain. The action of these pumps made the land 12 feet higher, thereby turning areas that used to be home to the frogs and crawfish into property covered with new houses. Even before that, subdivisions had been laid out and many houses built. One of the subdivisions advertised locally was Crestmont. In 1915, the real estate company handling sales at Crestmont claimed this neighborhood was the highest suburban property near the city and that it required no drainage. Prior to that, in 1911, another company developing the Metairie Heights subdivision declared

In 1916, Jefferson Parish officials claimed Metairie from the swamp with the use of two huge pumps at the end of the 17th Street Canal. Today there’s a whole complex of flood control mechanics to keep water out of neighborhoods.

its property was the highest spot this side of Baton Rouge. Metairie Court was developed in 1916. There were people who believed, even then, that it was only a question of time before Metairie would become an extension of New Orleans. From 1920 to 1930, the population of Jefferson Parish doubled. In 1940, Metairie was the fastest growing suburb of New Orleans and had a population of 10,000 to 12,000. In the 30 years that followed, folks moved in droves to Jefferson Parish, and its population doubled from 1940 to 1950 and again from 1950 to 1960. Much of the land, however, remained undeveloped until it was drained in the mid-1950s. There are 3,240 acres in Metairie, stretching from New Orleans to Kenner. Because Metairie isn’t incorporated, there currently is no mayor or city tax. Long ago, however, there was a mayor of Metairie: C. P. Aicklen was elected mayor in 1927 after Metairie Ridge was incorporated as a city. Homeowners in the new city fought to close down illegal casinos at The Victory Inn and Beverly Gardens on Metairie Road. Casino owners brought their own suit, and the Louisiana Supreme Court dissolved the city of Metairie Ridge in December 1928, just 18 months after it was incorporated. As mayor, Aicklen is remembered for obtaining gas service for the area.

Goodell Gotta Go The NFL should flag itself — personal foul: stupidity.

in harrah’s LuCky 7 GivEaWay

saturday, OCtObEr 6 | 7aM – 7pM NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was under fire last week after the replacement refs controversy. He ended up apologizing to fans.

Sporting News this week stating a good case for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s departure. The fact that Goodell, with the owners’ implied approval, ended up mismanaging a multi-billion dollar business to the point it was compared to the phoniness of pro wrestling — well, that’s reason enough for me to agree. Players don’t trust Goodell. Fans don’t, either. The first three weeks of the season looked like Buffalo Wild Wings commercials, not professional football. The NFL commissioner is supposed to lead, not rule, to take responsibility for the league and not simply release statements which give the appearance of cover-ups. The regular refs are back, but the damage has been done. We’re still suffering from the Saints bounty scandal/debacle. I don’t think I’m alone when I say I’ve lost even more trust in the NFL.

he Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks matchup on Monday Night Football will be remembered as the game that blew up the Internet. Twitter and Facebook exploded with raw emotional reaction to a call that forced an end to a labor dispute between the NFL and its replacement referees, who have been officiating since June, when the NFL Referees Association was locked out of labor talks. The play was a Hail Mary throw into the end zone by Seattle in the game’s final seconds. Referees ruled the catch a touchdown, despite video replay showing that Green Bay defender M.D. Jennings grabbed the ball and held it to his chest while the Seahawks’ Golden Tate put his hand on the ball. Simultaneous catch was decided and a touchdown awarded, giving Seattle the win. Packers guard T.J. Lang dropped expletives on Twitter: “F—k it NFL … Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs.” That was retweeted 92,314 times in a little more than 36 hours, breaking a Twitter record. Did people do that because of what he said or because of why he said it? Regardless, fans had had enough. The next day the NFL insulted us by releasing a statement that admitted officials missed an obvious offensive pass interference call — but stood by the final result. That’s right. The NFL stood by the call. The NFL tried to Jedi mind-trick its fans. I guess they knew it was science fiction, since talks resumed the day after the game and went on into the early morning hours. I don’t blame the replacement refs. It’s the league’s fault. As New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees said, “These replacement officials have been put in a really tough position, because they’re not qualified with the instincts and everything else to be out there with the speed of the game.” He added, “The level of play is just not fair to them. They’re doing the best they can.” David Steele, a columnist for AOL FanHouse, wrote a piece for the

AND PLANS TO CHANGE THE TEAM’S NAME, THIS MAY BE THE LAST YEAR YOU RECOGNIZE THE OLD NEW ORLEANS HORNETS. IN FACT, IT MAY BE THE LAST YEAR THEY ARE THE HORNETS.

ast Thursday, during his first media availability since the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, where he won a gold medal with Team USA Basketball, Anthony Davis started his press conference asking members of the media if they’d like to wear his gold medal. It may have been a token gesture, but it was a great sign for the Hornets. It showed their No. 1 pick comfortable in the spotlight; Davis, 2012 National College Basketball Player of the Year and NCAA Champion, exuded a quiet confidence when talking with reporters. It’s normal practice for an NBA team to show off its latest star player, especially when that player was the No. 1 overall draft pick. After the brief back-and-forth with reporters and some photographs, Davis was off to a TV interview. From there, Davis had just a few moments to talk, but even from these brief moments, it’s clear that Davis’ quiet demeanor belies his media savvy. Davis is a 19-year-old who regularly interacts with his 230,000-plus Twitter followers, asking them where to eat in San Antonio and why it’s so humid in New Orleans in August. “It’s a great way to incorporate the fans,” he said of using Twitter and Instagram. He’s also the guy who, in response to the Internet’s obsession with his unibrow, went out and trademarked the distinct hairline above his eyes. PAGE 21

For those who have spent more time following the New Orleans Saints, the bounty scandal and the misfortunes of the 2012 season, you may have missed all the news following Benson’s purchase of the Hornets. During his introductory press conference as the new owner of New Orleans’ NBA franchise, Benson said he wanted “to change [the team name] tomorrow. We have not gotten that approved, but we’re not letting up on it, either.” This was all said within earshot of NBA commissioner David Stern, who joked at the time that Benson was getting ahead of himself since the official paperwork giving Benson ownership of the team had not been completed. It also should be noted the NBA has set guidelines when it comes to name changes and team rebranding that stipulate the change happen gradually over the course of two seasons. But the Hornets name change and rebranding is imminent, and could come as early as next season if the league allows the team an accelerated rebranding. The good news for the Hornets is that the team can point to a similar situation that occurred in Washington with the Wizards. When Ted Leonsis purchased the team in 2010, he secured a new color scheme for his team after just one season. If we’re lucky, the Hornets will truly become New Orleans’ team in the same timeframe. Even without a name change, Benson already has put his mark on the Hornets. The team’s games will no longer receive spotty coverage from Cox Sports Television. In June, the team announced a 75-game deal (a franchise high) with the new Fox Sports

He’s barely taken off any time since leaving London and told Gambit he hasn’t even had a chance to settle down in New Orleans. Davis said he saw firsthand how hard NBA stars like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James work and seeks to emulate them. And playing with the likes of James, Bryant, Kevin Durant and Tyson Chandler in London has given him confidence. “I actually played with them and now I won’t be scared to talk to them [on the court] or talk trash with them,” he said. Of course, there are no guarantees in the NBA — since 1984, only two big men have won championships with the teams that drafted them (Hakeem Olajuwon with the Houston Rockets and Tim Duncan with the San Antonio Spurs). But the consensus among scouts is that Davis’ size and athletic ability will make him one of the best defensive players in the league in his first season. Pair that with the Hornets’ still-developing offensive game and you can forgive fans for getting giddy.

New Orleans. The team’s radio broadcast also has moved, heading over to WWL-AM radio, radio home of the Saints. Benson also is planning a renovation of the New Orleans Arena and the construction of a state-of-the-art basketball training facility next to the Saints’ complex in Metairie. Which brings us back to Davis’ press conference. In the past, these events were held at the Arena or at the Hornets’ old training facility at the Alario Center on the West Bank. Davis’ press conference was held at the Saints’ training facility in Metairie, even though there wasn’t a basketball court anywhere nearby. This seems a minor detail, but it shows just how quickly the Hornets are moving to sever ties with their past. This is no longer the George Shinn-owned team that left Charlotte, N.C., in disgrace and struggled to find footing in the Crescent City. In many ways, the first Benson-owned season will serve as a litmus test to how the team will operate in the future. Saints and Hornets staff have already begun to merge, with front office and marketing personnel doing double duty. On the basketball side, the Hornets face an uncertain season with a roster filled with rookies, second-year players and veteran role players but no proven talent. This could be a lost season like last year’s, where the only purpose is to provide the Hornets with a high draft pick to help build for the future. On the other hand, though, this could be the Hornets’ most exciting season in years, with the arrival of Davis and constant speculation about where the franchise goes from here. Meanwhile, New Orleanians have rallied behind the Hornets as a matter of civic pride, with 12,000 season tickets sold before the season starts — despite no indication the team will be successful this year. Head coach Monty Williams and general manager Dell Demps enter their third year in charge of the Hornets’ basketball

Despite flying a bit under the radar, Demps was one of the busiest general managers in the league during the off-season. If you haven’t been paying attention, you will have a tough time recognizing most of the players on this season’s roster. Many players who — for better or for worse — were the faces of the franchise are now gone, among them Trevor Ariza, Emeka Okafor, Jarrett Jack, Marco Belinelli and Carl Landry. This is Demps’ roster, and it carries nothing left over from the Byron Scott/Jeff Bower era — which, though it involved some great playoff memories, was ultimately unsustainable. Demps builds around young talent and solid role players as opposed to PAGE 25

operations and they have seen their team regress since making the playoffs in their first season together. But Demps and Williams are executing a complete overhaul of their roster to fit their plan for the team’s future, and they’ve had a positive influence on their players. In his first year, Williams took a team on the verge of imploding, with a disgruntled superstar playing out a contract, and coached them to the playoffs. Last year, despite an abysmal record that helped the Hornets win the draft lottery, Williams’ schemes gave the team the eighth-best defense in the NBA. Williams also is lucky to have a general manager in Demps who knows how to spot the right talent to execute his coach’s game plan. Drafting Davis with the No. 1 overall pick was an obvious decision, as was taking Austin Rivers and Darius Miller in the second round; all three players were the best talent available at the time.

overpaying for free agents and players developed by other teams for other purposes. It’s the same blueprint employed by the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs, Demps’ former team. With Davis and Eric Gordon — considered one of the best young scorers in the league — the goal is to mimic the success the Thunder found with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. More important, Demps seeks to find success with the dozen or so other players who have been signed to complement his two young would-be superstars. Enter second-players Robin Lopez and Hakim Warrick, both acquired through sign-and-trades with the Phoenix Suns. Both Lopez and Warrick will bring youth and, the team hopes, depth and stability to the Hornets’ front court as Davis develops. This also allows Gordon to more easily fit into his role as the team’s top scorer. None of this will happen overnight. It took Oklahoma City five seasons from the moment they drafted Durant until the team made the NBA finals. Of course, New Orleans may prove different. Gordon could turn out to be the best scorer in the NBA and Davis the best defender. The Hornets could luck out and draft another superstar or have one fall into their laps via a trade or free agency — or not. But the Hornets have established a solid foundation on which to build a championship contender in the coming years. Williams just signed a multi-year contract extension that will likely keep him in New Orleans as Davis, Gordon, Rivers and the other young talent develop. The city will once again have a relevant basketball team for which to root — under whatever name. We just have to get this season out of the way first.

Breast LAID PLANS D

MOST BREAST CANCER PATIENTS DON’T KNOW THEIR RECONSTRUCTION OPTIONS — BUT DOCTORS AND ADVOCATES ARE WORKING TO CHANGE THAT.

unintentionally lead women to believe that breast reconstruction is an unnecessary or narcissistic cosmetic procedure. “The fact that we have mandated insurance coverage takes (reconstruction) out of the realm of cosmetic surgery and makes it medically necessary procedure for a woman’s physical and emotional well-being following her mastectomy,” Sport says. Roth says not only does reconstruction pose no risk to survival in suitable patients, it also aids recovery. “Women who have immediate reconstruction are more likely to return to work and social situations faster, have less chance of depression, and the quality of life gets back to normalcy much faster,” Roth says. “So it may actually be better to do it immediately, though in some cases it is better to wait. A board-certified plastic surgeon is knowledgeable about that and collaborates with the oncologist, the breast surgeon, about what the best road for her may be.” There are a number of sophisticated techniques for breast reconstruction, with implants being the most common, according to Dr. Frank DellaCroce, co-director of the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery. Cohesive silicone gel or saline implants and supportive collagen are placed immediately following the mastectomy. Often, the skin and nipple can be spared, though sensation and functionality are lost. Fat transplant procedures involve transferring fat from the stomach or hips to create a natural feeling breast from living tissue that responds to weight gain or loss. The operation and

recovery are longer than with implants — five or six hours in surgery compared to one or two, and a hospital stay that’s two days longer — but fat transplants never wear out or need to be replaced. “Plastic surgeons are at the ready with super-sophisticated technology that women need to know about,” DellaCroce says. “And they need to know about them before they need them, ideally.” Sport has worked on that front with Breastoration by creating and distributing brochures to physicians and funding the ancillary costs of breast reconstruction (hotels, transportation, child care) for eight women during the last year. Breastoration also will partner with the ASPS, which holds its annual meeting in New Orleans Oct. 26-30, for Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day October 17. There will be a

a benefit concert performed by Jewel at the New Orleans Theater in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center Monday, Oct. 29. Funds benefit Breastoration, which assists women with educational and financial resources pertaining to breast reconstruction, and the ASPS foundations, which will raise awareness nationwide and help create organizations like Breastoration in other cities. “We’re fortunate to be in the great city of New Orleans for our annual meeting,” Roth says. “What a great partnership — and what better place to celebrate women reconstructing their lives than a city so familiar with rebirth?”

uring October, pink ribbons seem almost as ubiquitous as jack-o’lanterns. If that’s any indication of breast cancer awareness, knowledge of the disease must be at an all-time high. However, one aspect of recovering from breast cancer remains obscured by lack of information and a degree of stigma: breast reconstruction. A 2008 study revealed seven out of 10 breast cancer patients are not told their options for post-mastectomy reconstruction. “We don’t do an adequate job informing patients about what’s going on,” says Dr. Scott Sullivan, a general and plastic surgeon and co-founder of the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery. “The general surgeons are the gatekeepers (for reconstructive surgery), and they may not know the options or may choose not to discuss it. A community hospital may not have a plastic surgeon around, and even in some big cities, the quality of the surgery is not what it should be.” Two-time breast cancer survivor Kim Sport knew about her reconstruction options because she was an active volunteer in the cancer community. It wasn’t until after her mastectomy and reconstruction that she learned this made her a bit of an anomaly. “I didn’t know that doctors weren’t telling their own patients they didn’t have to live with disfigurement after a mastectomy,” says Sport, who created Breastoration, an organization that sheds light on breast reconstruction. “I was so outraged by it. I can’t imagine looking down and dealing with disfigurement as a daily, constant reminder that at two times, I had a life-threatening disease.” Sport and Dr. Malcolm Roth, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and chief of the division of plastic surgery at Albany Medical Center, say that some surgeons may intentionally or

t’s a game I often play when grocery shopping in international markets: planning for one impulse buy. Sometimes it’s coconut vinegar, another time fresh tamarind. It sure beats a pint of ice cream, but the idea has a purpose beyond fun. Think of ingredients like tools or paints in a palette. The more flavors you have, the more you can paint. This makes healthful eating more than just nutritionally sound — it makes it interesting. That’s how Lemongrass-Chipotle Chicken was born. Unlike dried minced garlic or onion, dried lemongrass cannot be simply sprinkled into a dish. The results are too woody and fibrous. Instead, dried lemongrass can be infused to make a tea, broth for a soup stock, the foundation of a sauce, or in this case, a variation on an eastern North Carolina vinegar-based sauce paired with poached and shredded chicken breast. For little fat and tremendous amounts of protein, lemongrass imparts minerals and several variations of vitamin B. Do you have to experiment with ingredients to reap maximum nutritional benefits? No, but making health food interesting isn’t about what you have to do. It’s about proving what’s possible — to yourself as much as anyone.

C

tive causes, women are at higher risk if they have had trauma to the pelvic floor, a midline episiotomy, a hysterectomy, are post-menopausal, overweight, have a family history of the condition or an instrumental delivery. “About 20-30 years ago, we used to perform forcep deliveries, and you would actually reach in and clamp around the fetal head and pull out,” Bedestani says. “That sometimes causes significant trauma. The results were first, second, third and sometimes forth degree lacerations meaning the whole vaginal and pelvic floor muscles could be ripped up to and even through the rectum.” Midline episiotomies are also thought to contribute to a woman’s risk of prolapse. These surgical incisions were commonly performed in the 1970s during childbirth. The incision was made to enlarge the vaginal opening and ran in a vertical line from the bottom of the vagina toward the rectum. However, this style of episiotomy often ripped into the rectum. Now, most obstetricians either use a mediolateral (slanted) episiotomy or none at all. Another medical procedure linked to this condition is hysterectomy. “Research has shown that attention must be given to restoring the uterosacral-cardinal ligament complex to prevent vaginal vault prolapse after hysterectomy, which has been reported to be as high as 18 percent,” Bedestani says. Age and weight are factors, too. As we age, supportive tissues naturally weaken

and excess weight puts more stress on all of the organs as well as the support systems. Family history and ethnic background could be another indicator of potential prolapse. “There is a definite founder effect to pelvic organ prolapse,” Bedestani says. “French-Canadians, for instance, tend to have softer tissue and a greater prevalence of prolapse than African-American women.” Female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery is the newest sub-specialty of medicine, with the first board exam taking place in 2013. These delicate operations are often performed inside the vagina with only a few centimeters to work and no room for error. In the wrong hands, results can be worse than the prolapse. Physicians began performing mesh surgeries to act as a scaffolding to help women with specific areas of prolapse. Instead of removing excess, protruding skin, which leads to tightening (imagine a bad facelift in a very sensitive area), the mesh slings help support the prolapse. Statistically, mesh proves to be a very effective treatment option, but poor execution and bad press has made some patients leery of the procedure. There are several other surgical options, however, so patients and physicians

don’t have to rely on transvaginal mesh or surgeries that cause vaginal tightening. The key is to work with a surgeon who has a lot of experience in female reconstructive surgery. “One of these types of surgeries, for example, is a uterosacral ligament repair, and it works very well,” Bedestani says. “But it’s done through the vagina, and it’s very technically challenging. ... It’s kind of like finding a needle in a haystack, but if you are properly trained, it’s not that hard.” Robotic technology is another important development in the world of pelvic organ prolapse repair. The da Vinci Robotic System’s ability to navigate the presacral space (located between the rectum and the sacrococcygeal part of the spine) with 10 times magnification in three dimensions allows this technically challenging surgery to be performed safely, improving long-term results. The takeaway is that new technologies are improving things drastically for women as they age. “I don’t think it’s too much in this day and age for a woman to ask to be free of these kinds of issues,” Bedestani says. “If you are suffering from that aspect of pathology in your life, you should know very good treatment is out there.”

hances are the 60-year-old woman of today expects much more from her body than women did in years past. She may want to work, exercise and have a fulfilling relationship with her partner. However, pelvic organ prolapse can bring all of that to a grinding halt. Although it’s not usually dangerous, prolapse can be uncomfortable, painful and embarrassing. Fortunately, with proper treatment, a woman’s quality of life can be recovered. Pelvic organ prolapse is a condition in which the muscles and fascia supporting the pelvic organs become compromised. Without the proper support structure, the bladder, rectum, uterus or small intestine can fall out of place (prolapse) and bulge into or protrude out of the vagina. A complete prolapse, which is considered a worst-case scenario, occurs when the entire vaginal canal comes out of the vagina, virtually turning inside out. Unfortunately, pelvic organ prolapse is extremely common, particularly as women age. According to urogynecologist Ahmet Bedestani MD at East Jefferson General Hospital, by the time a woman reaches her 70s, she has about an 11-15 percent chance of having experienced some aspect of prolapse and the symptoms associated with it. Symptoms depend on the type of prolapse a patient has but range from lower back pain and a feeling of fullness in the pelvic area to urinary incontinence, painful intercourse and stool leakage, among others. While there are no defini-

Over the years, the store’s staff has transformed patrons into everything from celebrities like Katy Perry to conceptual creatures like “Wizard of Oz meets KISS.” A staff wig designer can create a custom wig from any photograph, incorporating coy or unsettling hair props like a cupcake or head-cleaving hatchet. The store’s latest feature is an attached full-service salon helmed by longtime employee and stylist Jamie Gandy. The salon will offer hair cutting and styling as well as cosmetic services for special events like bachelorette parties. Hesseling calls the salon a natural progression for the company, which can provide longer-lasting styles for customers who love the dramatic effects of a costume. Hesseling suggests stopping by the store before Halloween to try on a few wigs. She says their ability to shape the look will surprise you, and that a good wig is the secret to a mind-blowing costume. “Start with a wig and build the costume around it … If you just have your normal hair [for a costume], it can never be as great as a wig,” she says. “That crowning glory, the hair — all of a sudden, it’s like, boom.”

They’re more likely to sport the tropically hued wigs, glittering eyelashes and flamboyant accessories that have made the store one of the city’s best-known spots for costume shopping. Since opening the store with her husband in 1996, owner Marcy Hesseling has nurtured a haven for curious tourists, the aspiring fabulous and “super New Orleans freaks” captivated by the store’s embrace of costuming as self-expression. “I just feel so grateful that people (in New Orleans) really are allowed to do whatever they want as far as what they wear, with very little judgment,” Hesseling says. “People really love [the store]. They come in here and it’s like their house; they can feel like it’s their own little getaway.” In the entryway of the Royal Street storefront, a towering blue bouffant wig teeters on a mannequin head. Tiny pots of deeply pigmented cosmetics are nestled in drawers like laboratory samples, and sunglasses embellished with skulls, beads and the inevitable glitter rest invitingly on tables. Though Hesseling says she grew up embracing a punk rock aesthetic, the effect of Fifi Mahony’s is less garish than glamorous, filled with color, shimmer and the intrigue of becoming someone else for a night. “It’s such a game-changer when you put a wig on someone.

Slow Food reviving New Orleans chapter

Before the lexicon of local foods was commonplace, the international movement called “Slow Food” encouraged people to reconnect with authentic regional flavors and food traditions. Launched in Italy in 1986, it came in response to the rise of fast food and industrialized food in Europe, and local chapters were formed around the world. New Orleans food maven Poppy Tooker started the first local Slow Food chapter in 1999. That branch was disbanded two years ago amid turmoil over the direction and goals of Slow Food USA, the national organization headquartered in Brooklyn. The new chapter of Slow Food scheduled a launch party Monday, Oct. 1, at Rock ’N’ Bowl. Annual membership (details at www.slowfoodnola.com) costs $25, and members get invitations to events, discounts on food at those events and other perks. “You get to join a movement,” says Gary Granata, a local sports nutritionist who chairs the new Slow Food New Orleans chapter.

ith two high-profile chefs, a build-up lasting two years and the very name over the door, Restaurant R’evolution sets expectations somewhere in the upper stratosphere. So it’s been surprising, since the place opened in June inside the Royal Sonesta Hotel, to discover a restaurant that stands out for reviving certain restaurant experiences rather than by revolutionizing them. Surprising, but not disappointing. R’evolution was billed from the start as blending the Louisiana culinary roots long championed by chef John Folse and the culinary daring of chef Rick Tramanto, who achieved national acclaim at avant-garde Chicago restaurants. On the table, this works out as something I call conspicuously contemporary Creole cuisine. Dishes have lots of flair and gilding and sometimes their own narratives, but R’evolution’s cuisine is not so different from how other top New Orleans chefs are cooking today. In fact, it’s possible to assemble a perfectly conventional dinner here (broiled oysters, seafood pastas, expense account steaks) or tour Tramanto’s earlier hits: the chef’s “caviar staircase,” arrayed on tiny steps, for instance, or his gorgeous, camera-ready, cappuccino-style soup. Other dishes show the impressive technical precision of this kitchen, which is led by chef de cuisine Chris Lusk: a combination of buttery red snapper and sticky pork belly; a “Napoleon” striped with alternating layers of flounder and crawfish stuffing and a pool of oyster stew as sauce; a ruddy sheen of venison carpaccio, aromatic with specks of dark chocolate, walnuts and

slivered grapes. They’re visually intricate, like dioramas on the plate, and pastry chef Erin Swanson continues the theme with bread pudding under hives of spun sugar or a sack of beignets with candied coffee beans, pot de creme and fig jam. This is creative interpretation of recognizable Louisiana traditions, which is contemporary Creole as we’ve long known it. But how R’evolution really stands apart is by applying this approach to the entire restaurant experience. The space is sumptuous, intimate and elegant — a succession of rooms decked with murals, flowers and culinary antiques, like an old Creole mansion. But here diners also are invited to admire cases where charcuterie cures and a gleaming, state-of-the-art kitchen that could be a Food Network set. The cocktail menu keeps pace with house-made fashions, but before dessert a waitress wheels up a cheese cart, as if from another generation, and afterward comes a genteel presentation of small sweets, called “mignardises.” This last taste is gratis, though you’ve certainly paid for it somewhere in the meal. R’evolution is priced like a casino restaurant, and even a cautious dinner for two can quickly top $200. But if any restaurant looks like it should be pricey, it’s this one. Everything aims for formal, Old World grandeur, showing what might have been had one of our French-Creole grandes dames submitted to a major modernization a decade ago. Now that even expensive new restaurants are gunning for “casual upscale,” R’evolution makes the case more for bucking trends than setting new ones.

WINE OF THE week BY BRENDA MAITLAND Email Brenda Maitland at winediva1@earthlink.net

2009 Lenda Albarino RIAS BAIXAS, SPAIN $18 RETAIL

The tiny region of Rias Baixas, in the province of Galicia in Spain’s northwestern corner, produces some of the country’s finest white wines from the albarino grape. Positioned on the Atlantic ocean, the region’s cooling coastal breezes help moderate the sometimes extreme climate. Grapes for this bottling were sourced from a single vineyard in the mountainous Condado de Tea zone. Made by Bodegas Pazo Pondal, the wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the regional character. In the glass, the wine offers aromas of lemon, lime and grapefruit with honeysuckle notes. On the palate, taste crisp apple, stone fruit, a touch of ginger and a steely minerality on the bright finish. Drink it with fish, shellfish, sushi, paella, soft cheeses and Asian cuisines. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle. Drink it at: Dijon, NOLA and Martinique.

interview Food nationally, however. Members, former members and supporters of Slow Food have been debating its future, with some urging the group to stick to its original purpose — supporting artisanal food producers and regionally specific foods — while the organization has been increasingly active in “food justice issues,” such as access to healthy foods and the gears of government food policy. The new Slow Food New Orleans chapter hopes to bring in elements from both sides. “One thing that Slow Food teaches is that consumers can be co-producers,” Granata says. “When you buy food, the decisions you make, that gives you a hand in how food is produced. It’s creating that connection between producers and consumers.” Health and food-access issues are an important part of the new chapter, which has formed a partnership with the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation, a nonprofit that provides free medical, health and wellness services to local musicians. Granata says the partnership is intended to link Slow Food’s work with the foundation’s efforts to promote healthy diets and lifestyles for musicians. As part of the partnership, the groups plan to hold monthly events benefiting both Slow Food and the Musicians Assistance Foundation.

new chef at sara’s Bistro

C AT ER ER A N D C O N C ER T TO U R C H EF

nne Churchill (karmakitchen.anne@gmail.com) left a teaching career in 2002 to enroll in culinary school. She worked at Bourbon House and Bayona and then, in a move that presaged the current pop-up trend, started serving her own menu of chef-driven bar food at the Bridge Lounge in 2004. Today, she works as a specialty vegan chef on national concert tours for acts including the Dave Matthews Band and the Zac Brown Band. When she’s in New Orleans she caters parties and hosts culinary events. The next is Wednesday, Oct. 3, when she’ll prepare a five-course, all-vegan dinner at Feelings Cafe (2600 Chartres St., 945-2222; www.feelingscafe.com). Seatings are at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and the cost is $45. Call Feelings Cafe for reservations. What’s it like cooking vegan for a touring rock band? Churchill: Most of the people on the tour actually eat pretty healthy. We work ahead, coordinating with local farmers and suppliers in the towns where they’ll be playing to set things up, so whenever possible we use sustainable and locally grown foods. We might know this next town is going to be a food desert, so we’ll stock up in advance, getting nutritional yeast and tofu while we can and bringing it along. Each stop is a different puzzle. We joke that it’s band camp catering. It can be a 15-hour day, because we get breakfast out there for maybe 85 people, lunch for 100, maybe 150 at dinner. So it’s really intense, but it is fun. You’re not a vegan yourself, so what appeals to you about vegan cooking? C: It’s really interesting because you’re always learning about new foods and how to use them. There’s more out there than you think. You can’t just hit the pork fat button to make something taste good. It makes you experiment more and actually gives you a bigger range — though, granted, there are lots of magical things on a pig. How would you describe your own culinary style? C: I try to respect the ingredient and source locally, but I just want to taste everything and experiment with everything. It’s the culture, the people, even the geography that’s all represented in different foods, I want to go there and experience it all. — IAN MCNULTY

“When people think about an Indian restaurant, they automatically think lunch buffet,” he says. “You wouldn’t believe how many calls we get asking when the buffet opens.” Sara’s does not offer a buffet, and it serves dinner Tuesday through Saturday.

nOlA Goes pink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and as part of the effort, New Orleans restaurants are participating in NOLA Goes Pink. For this annual campaign, chefs don pink coats and either add or designate a healthy menu item to feature for the month, pledging to contribute 10 percent of sales from that dish to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, New Orleans, the local branch of the national breast cancer foundation. Look for the foundation’s trademark pink ribbon on menus and staff uniforms. NOLA Goes Pink was created by Char Thian, director of public relations for the local Ritz-Carlton Hotel, and she has recruited dozens of area restaurants, from the hotel’s own M Bistro to Bayona to the Reginelli’s Pizzeria chain. See the restaurant list and menus at www. komenneworleans.org.

Oktoberfests in overdrive

Deutsches Haus holds the area’s largest Oktoberfest, which will begin Oct. 12 this year and run for three weekends in Kenner’s Rivertown. But there are other German cultural celebrations, including some this week. On Oct. 6-7, Broussard’s Restaurant (819 Conti St., 581-3866; www. broussards.com) transforms its courtyard into a German beer garden, with beer and traditional Oktoberfest foods sold from booths around the property. The festival goes from noon to 9 p.m. each day. Admission is $10. German food and drink also are on tap during the Gretna Heritage Festival (www.gretnafest.com), Oct. 5-7, in downtown Gretna. The German-American Cultural Center hosts a fest within a fest during the event, setting up its own beer garden and food booths. Middendorf’s Seafood Restaurant (30160 Hwy. 51, Akers, 985-386-6666; www.middendorfsrestaurant.com) continues its own (relatively new) tradition, adding German dishes to the menu as specials each Wednesday and Thursday, starting Oct. 3 and continuing through October.

Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food. “A traditional kitchen is like a pirate ship. We like our flames, we like our noise, we have our scars. We’d like to create a kitchen that’s more like a yacht.” — Jonathan Zearfoss, a chef and instructor at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), quoted in an Associated Press story about culinary schools embracing modernist cuisine and molecular gastronomy. In September, the CIA began offering a new major in culinary science, described as encompassing food science and culinary arts.

Sara’s Bistro (724 Dublin St., 8610565); www.sarasbistro.com has been around for many years, but the eclectic Riverbend restaurant was always hard to categorize, mixing French bistro dishes, Creole standards, Indian and southeast Asian flavors. A new menu here, however, is different from what Sara’s regulars have come to expect. There’s a hanger steak prepared in the style of Korean bulgogi, for instance, and short ribs prepared sous vide (a culinary technique using vacuum packs and very low heat). This menu is the work of Bart Thomas, the restaurant’s new manager and consulting chef. A north Louisiana native, Thomas says he previously ran his own private chef business in New York and London, shuttling between the two cities, but homesickness led him back to Louisiana and then to New Orleans. “I stumbled into Sara’s one night because it’s near my house, and I thought this was a place with a lot of potential that needed some help,” Thomas says. “The menu really hadn’t changed in 10 years.” Thomas says his goal is to put a new polish on the restaurant, from the menu and sourcing to presentation on the plate and drinks at the bar. His menu still features plenty of Indian and Thai flavors. Among the entrees, there’s saag paneer (an Indian cheese) in masala sauce and chili-crusted shrimp are served with noodles in coconut green curry, and there’s even “sub-continental chicken thighs” spiced with cardamom, cinnamon and coriander. Thomas bristles at the description of the new Sara’s as an Indian restaurant.

Traveling Light Thaddeus Phillips’ show thinks globally. By Brad Rhines

T

people talking in a very organized way and in a fairly realistic set.” By contrast, action design allows artists to treat the stage as a “completely transformative plastic space.” The set design for 17 Border Crossings consists of a few microphones and a bar of fluorescent and halogen lights that can be manipulated to shape a variety of places and settings. The use of light also reinforces the notion of borders as impermanent and intangible markers of space. “The idea of borders is such a firm thing that governments have established and nations have established, but it’s really just a line in the sand,” Phillips says. “And so we wanted to make a border out of light, which is abstracted and can turn on and off. We define the space through use of different lights to give you the sense that you’re on a train, or in a bus, in a bathroom in Amsterdam, in a tent in the Amazon.” Phillips uses a second-person narrative to help audiences imagine they are experiencing the stories themselves. “It gets annoying to be like ‘I like did this’ and ‘I was there,’” Phillips says. “And it’s just more theatrical to say ‘Okay, now you’re in this train in Hungary. You’re about to cross the border into Serbia.’” After performing 17 Border Crossings in the United States, Europe and Latin America, Phillips is going to focus on directing. Already he’s receiving accolades for directing and designing

Red-Eye to Havre de Grace, an avant-garde musical about the last days of Edgar Allan Poe. A recent performance at Philadelphia’s Live Arts Festival, drew praise from New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood, who called it an “exquisite show” and “among the most original musical theater works I’ve seen in years.” “In a way,17 Borders is like the ending of a chapter of performance,” Phillips says. “It’s not my last time on stage ever, but it’s a definite wrapup to a certain stage of work I’ve been making.”

Thaddeus Phillips relates tales about travel in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Cuba and Latin America in 17 Border Crossings.

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > october 2 > 2012

haddeus Phillips is a man of the world. As a theater artist splitting his time between Philadelphia and Bogota, Colombia, Phillips has traveled the globe in search of stories and new ways to tell them. On Friday, Phillips touches down in New Orleans for the first time with his one-man show 17 Border Crossings, which the Contemporary Arts Center presents in conjunction with the Where Do We Migrate To? exhibition opening Saturday. Phillips’ work in theater has taken him to some remote places, and he finds that some of the most interesting stories never make it to the stage. These stories he’d tell among friends: bizarre and sometimes frightening encounters in Cuba, war-torn Eastern Europe and the wilds of the Amazon. He calls them the “outtakes” of his time spent traveling to develop shows. In 17 Border Crossings, Phillips compiles these monologues and examines the imposed borders and their effect on personal interactions. “This started being developed in 2010 when all the stuff in Arizona was going on with the crazy laws,” says Phillips, referring to Arizona’s controversial laws aimed at undocumented immigrants. While working on the play’s structure, Phillips realized other political and social events over the past two decades helped shape his stories. “We were looking for distinctive markers that change the way the world is perceived and thus change the borders,” he says. “The borders after the fall of the Berlin Wall all changed in Europe completely, and after 9/11 they all got changed again.” As a director and designer, Phillips attempts to engage the audience and heighten the drama of his border crossing stories by avoiding the conventions of traditional theater. In Prague, he studied action design, a contemporary approach to set design pioneered in the former Czechoslovakia. “Traditional theater is essentially very conservative and not that interesting,” Phillips says. “It’s

Every Dinosaur Jr. album before resurgent triplets Beyond, Farm and the September release I Bet on Sky should be plastered with a disclaimer for aspiring about-to-be-classic rockers experiencing their first bout of infighting — something like, “Unprofessional stuntmen. Don’t try this BS at home.” Immortal SSt recordings You’re Living All Over Me and Bug notwithstanding, the trio’s 13-year first take (before convincingly playing dead from 1997-2005) is a blooper reel for a late-’80s prequel to Making the Band: high-school sweethearts turned juvenile sourpusses; a supremely talented frontman suffering from crippling social anxiety and fits of megalomaniacal control-freakouts, and an equally, though very differently, gifted sideman who seemed to take everything personally (and spent much of his next band projecting it). All this is now, thankfully, beside a moot point. With a mutual mea culpa in 2005, the oddest of odd couples, J Mascis (now a dead ringer for Gandalf in Chuck taylors) and Lou Barlow, along with caught-in-the-crosshairs drummer Murph, tore up their annulment and did what all dysfunctional relationships do: they went about their business like nothing happened. I Bet on Sky, like Farm and Beyond before it, could slip into 1989 as the band’s third successive MtV-era overthrow. the snappy framework of “Rude” could masquerade as a pop, country or punk hit, while first single “Watch the Corners” is an incredible sulk. “All this time/ We couldn’t wait to get back,” Mascis mumbles on genuinely remorseful closer “See It on Your Side.” When you can’t say you’re sorry, sing it. Austin, texas’ Shearwater, whose February release Animal Joy (Sub Pop) is a stark tributary of Okkervil River’s cold rush, opens. tickets $22 in advance, $25 day of show. — NOAh BONAPARtE PAIS

REVIEW

Beauty Is Embarrassing

“GROUNDBREAKING” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Few people have heard of artist Wayne White, but many can recognize his remarkable work. White was a set designer, puppeteer and guiding light for the groundbreaking not-just-for-kids tV show Pee-wee’s Playhouse, and the director of award-winning music videos for artists including Smashing Pumpkins and Peter Gabriel. Now, White tHRu Beauty is Embarrassing mainly makes his living as a painter, taking OCT 8 p.m. tue.-thu. cheesy landscape paintings he finds in thrift stores and adding block-letter Zeitgeist Multi-Disciphrases like “just a picture/shunned by plinary Arts Center scholars/now it costs/10,000 dollars.” the resulting works have been accepted in the 1618 Oretha Castle fine art world even as they lampoon that world, Haley Blvd. all while convincing observers of every stripe 352-1150 that art and artists have every right to be funny and entertaining. www.zeitgesitinc.net As seen in Beauty is Embarrassing, a free-spirited documentary tracing White’s life and career, the artist becomes a sort of everyman of fearlessness — a hard-working Southerner transplanted to Los Angeles who always manages to stay true to himself no matter what challenges come his way. It’s easy to identify with White and other Pee-wee’s Playhouse alumni as they recall what many of them knew would be the best time of their lives — being set free to make art disguised as a children’s tV show with none of the limitations that normally accompany a corporate media job. In the hands of first-time director Neil Berkeley, the film also illuminates the long, slow slog most people go through just to learn how to be themselves. the film offers a full immersion in White’s fantastic sculptural creations and in the graphical work of his talented wife Mimi Pond (who wrote the first episode of The Simpsons). And it’s fascinating to witness White’s uncanny ability to make art out of whatever found objects and household scraps happen to be lying round. Beauty is Embarrassing is an inspiration for creative types who suffer from lingering self-doubt or frequently wonder if it’s all worth the effort — which describes pretty much everyone who makes art. — KEN KORMAN

Did postmodernism kill New York art? Clearly something did because very little of consequence has originated there for more than 20 years. Anyone looking for a culprit need look no further than the Regarding Warhol show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, featuring work by the maestro himself as well as the many wannabe clones who followed in his wake. And while early Warhol was great, it was mostly his later stuff that set the tone for what came next, the postmodern pop progeny that ranged from moderately brilliant talents tHRU Image Transfer: Pictures like Cindy Sherman to such egrein a Remix Culture: Group OCt giously over-hyped hucksters as Jeff exhibition curated by Sara Koons, Richard Prince and all the rest Krajewski who turned the New York scene into a pretentious extension of Wall Street. So tulane University it was only fitting that the most incisive Newcomb Art Gallery review of the show appeared in Bloom865-5328 berg Businessweek where critic Lance Esplund opined, “I suggest you skip it. www.newcombartgallery. this cramped, predictable, ho-hum extulane.edu hibition... is a celebration of the artist as opportunist.” Ouch. How did postmodernism, a movement with roots in Marxist critical theory, end up as the very thing it was supposed to critique? that is a long and sad story, but suffice it to say that not all postmodern artists obsessed with mass media so shamelessly sold out, and this Image Transfer expo at Newcomb is proof they still exist. While not all is thrall-inducing, much of the work is interesting in the way the artifacts of any lost tribe can be interesting. So here we have convoluted tropes like Karl Haendel’s large, dazzlingly realistic pencil drawings of Maltese Falcon film stills and Man Ray-style photo-abstractions (pictured); and Sean Dack’s digital images transformed by technical tweaks into neo-cubist compositions like Glitch Girl, or Sara VanDerBeek’s Four Photographers series of digital remixes of work by great photographers from the art historical past. Curated in Seattle, Image Transfer substitutes sobriety for flash, but what it and the Met’s post-Warhol show have in common is a cutting edge sensibility — from 20 years ago. — D. ERIC BOOKHARDt

REVIEW

The Zeitgeist Chronicles The Zeitgeist Chronicles, an original play that recently premiered at Dillard University, is a mosaic of the political campaign that produced our first African-American president. Scenes of the campaign are presented in large newsreel projections, but most of the show is in the form of several unrelated live-action dramas about people affected by the momentous race. Local playwright Stephen Montagne calls his work a “multimedia, operatic, theatrical event.” He’s got all his bases covered with that description. But does it work? Or more precisely, is it a mosaic or a muddle? the good news is that Chronicles is a sprawling ambitious work. Under Ed Bishop’s able direction, an excellent cast brought the characters and conflicts to vivid life. But if the play was one-third shorter, it would be three times better. Also while the projections reflect the larger world, they sometimes flashed on and off — as though someone had missed a cue — and they are not crucial to the plot. Each separate story has its own arc, but Chronicles as a whole does not. Maybe Aristotle’s requirement of having a beginning, middle and end doesn’t apply to “multimedia, operatic, theatrical events.” there are several storylines. Ethan (taylor McLellan), a young Mormon standup comic goes to New York to seek his fortune. He befriends Dorothy Dorchester (Janet Shea), a retired entertainer who lives alone. Dorothy was successful but became a drunk. She’s now a non-drinker like the Mormon. She’s also Jewish, and she and Ethan form an odd couple who help and encourage each other. A second story follows the complex dynamics of a black family in New Orleans. the grandfather (Spencer Howard) is in a hospital bed at touro Infirmary. His son Jackson (Damien Moses), grandson Miles (Martin Bradford) and granddaughter (Kari Cojoe) visit him continually, dividing their time between comforting the dying man and fighting among themselves. Miles is a radio announcer who goes into emotional raptures on the air about candidate Barack Obama. He also has a pregnant girlfriend, Shauna (Jarell Hamilton), who gets fed up because she pays for their outings. Eddie “Hell Raiser” Haynes (an intriguingly ambiguous Ray Vrazel) is a wounded veteran who huffs and puffs about being a “redneck” and a “cracker.” He is visited by his niece Kimberly (Jennifer Schemke), who is a reporter. She has never met her uncle or seen her father and seeks answers about her family. there also is a sort of drunken interracial orgy at the Democratic convention in Denver and more stark plot twists as the election nears. Maybe all the romance and tragedy somehow reflect the “Change Election.” they certainly justify the claim of multi-media, operatic, theatrical event. the cast and crew hope to keep working on the show and take it to the next level. For now, it’s a diamond in the very rough. — DALt WONK

No. 2002-14666 DIVISION I c/w 02-14724, 02-14850, 02-14861 and 02-14881 KIETA ALEXANDER, et al. VERSUS NORFOLK SOUTHERN CORPORATION, et al. NOTICE OF JUDGMENT VACATING CLASS CERTIFICATION ORDER TO: All persons, corporations, partnerships, entities and proprietorships suffering property damage, business interruption, economic loss, personal injury, emotional or mental anguish, including fear of contracting cancer and trauma, and/or aggravation and inconvenience of having to evacuate their home and the area, caused by the alleged chemical leakage and/ or spill of ethyl acrylate in Orleans Parish in the vicinity of the 2300 block of North Broad Street on or about September 18, 2001, including (without limitation) all individuals and/ or entities who resided or regularly worked or were present in the area bounded by Filmore Avenue, Elysian Fields Avenue, N. Johnson Street, Esplanade Avenue, Moss Street, and Wisner Boulevard, who were allegedly exposed to fumes, vapors and/or ethyl acrylate from tank cars UTLX #202519 and/or UTLX #202365 while parked near 2300 North Broad Street on or about September 18, 2001, and who allege that they suffered damages as a result of such exposure. PURPOSE OF THIS NOTICE On November 22, 2010, the Court entered an order certifying this matter as a class action. That ruling was affirmed by the Louisiana Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal on November 16, 2011. Following an appeal of that ruling, the Louisiana Supreme Court determined on April 20, 2012 that this case should no longer proceed as a class action. This notice is intended to advise all potential class members of the recent change in the status of this lawsuit. All persons or entities wishing to proceed with a claim for their alleged damages in connection with the September 18, 2001 incident must file their own lawsuit if they have not already done so. If you wish to bring such a claim, you should be aware that the Court has determined that the deadline for filing your lawsuit is Tuesday, November 13, 2012.

EMPLOYMENT CLASSIFIEDS NEW ORLEANS

JOB GURU

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “For as long as I can remember, I have operated my own business. Now I have to get a ‘real job’ for the first time in my life. How can I put together a résumé when all I’ve ever done is work for myself for the past 12 years? I cut grass during high school and college, then I worked in my dad’s construction company when I was younger. After that I went out on my own, bought houses to flip, and opened up a small retail shop. How does this add up to a résumé that I can get a job with?” — Gregg A., Marrero, LA Dear Gregg, Former business owners can make very attractive job candidates, and I have created many effective résumés from former entrepreneurs and business owners that landed them great new positions. There are many “hats” that you have to wear in order to operate a small business, and that adds up to an attractive list of skills that can feature the important qualities that today’s employers are looking for. Grant Cooper For example, in order to launch, operate, and manage most small businesses, you 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.

A former construction business owner had a background somewhat similar to yours, Gregg. He wanted to get a ‘real job’ in New Orleans because he had young children and couldn’t relocate. We highlighted many of his entrepreneurial skills and he ended up landing a fantastic job doing work on feature film movie sets. He’s now makes excellent money, plus he has time for his kids in between projects.

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > october 2 > 2012

• Utilized sales, cold-calling, and referral skills to enhance client base and increase revenues. Made presentations to local businesses and landed large-dollar monthly contracts at area companies. Purchased, operated, and maintained a variety of lawn equipment, including mowers, edgers, weed eaters, chainsaws, and blowers.

74

Many companies actually prefer to hire former entrepreneurs and business owners for a variety of reasons, including: • They have a well-rounded skill set that helps in everything they do • They often put in long hours and are not afraid of hard work • They learned how to handle difficult customers and solve problems • They value their job and will do what it takes to keep it New Orleans Job Guru is New Orleans native Grant Cooper. President of Strategic Résumés®, Grant is ranks in the Top 2% of 340 LinkedIn National Résumé Writing Experts and has assisted the U.S. Air Force, Kinko’s, the Louisiana Dept. of Labor, the City of New Orleans, NFL/NBA players & coaches, as well as universities, regional banks, celebrities, and major corporations.
