PROVIDING CARE, COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING FOR WOMEN AT ALL STAGES OF LIFE Diagnostic Imaging Services will make a donation to the New Orleans chapter of the American Cancer Society for each Mammogram performed during the month of October What do women who chose D.I.S. for the very first time and have a mammogram say about their patient experience? “This was my first time at your facility and the staff and my technician, Monica, were outstanding!” “My first mammogram was better than I hoped for. Thank you.” “Well done by all! Your employees could certainly teach other outpatient facilities how to be courteous and professional.” “This was the most efficient medical facility I have ever dealt with. I am accustomed to waiting 30 minutes to an hour to ever be seen. Well done!”

Mammography • Bone Density Studies • Ultrasound • Breast MRI • Breast Biopsy • Cyst Aspiration MRI • CT • PET/CT • Nuclear Medicine • Digital X-Ray • Interventional Studies

Grinding Gears

By Alex Woodward


n March, rapper Lil Wayne, Hollygrove’s favorite son, partnered with Mountain Dew for a multimillion dollar ad campaign cleverly dubbed “DEWeezy,” combining the rapper’s nickname with that of the astro-green Pepsi drink. It was Weezy’s first major endorsement deal, a deal with a company that shares a common interest in skateboarding — Mountain Dew has been the token “x-treme” beverage marketed in “x-treme” sports, and Wayne has expressed an interest in skate culture (not including the lyrical references “skinny pants and some Vans”). The deal links Wayne with professional skateboarders Paul Rodriguez and Theotis Beasley, and this week, the campaign will cut the ribbon on a new skate park in the Lower 9th Ward. New Orleans’ skate culture is thriving — from skate shops and DIY skate spots to the city’s famously flat terrain and creative street design, not to mention the all-ages skateboarders in neighborhoods citywide. A free and open-to-the-public skate spot is a necessary, obvious and overdue addition. Although the DEWeezy Project skate park is one of the first “official” parks in city limits, it won’t be the last. City ordinances make it clear that skateboarding is not just another form of transportation in New Orleans: “No person upon roller skates or riding in or by means of any coaster, toy

James Singleton,

former chief deputy of New Orleans Traffic Court (and no relation to the former city councilman of the same name), was sentenced to seven months in prison and 200 hours of community service after pleading guilty to pocketing nearly $10,000 in traffic fines. The extent of his crimes was revealed after investigations by the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s office and WWL-TV.

    “They said it was because of  graffiti,” says Peach Orchard crew  member Joey O’Mahoney. “I don’t  know if you’ve seen Norfolk Southern trains but they still have graffiti.  They didn’t fix the graffiti problem by  bulldozing a public resource.”     So Peach Orchard crewmembers started rebuilding at a new  site, dubbed Parisite.  “We’re not  building a replica,” O’Mahoney  says. “We used to work during the  week during the days. Now we get  a bunch of heads together on Saturdays and start shoveling at 9 a.m.  Hopefully we’ll never finish. It can  constantly be evolving.”     Peach Orchard doesn’t have  permission, or permits, from the  New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORD), though  O’Mahoney says there’s “an understanding,” and no city agency has  made any statement supporting or  condemning it.     “At the new spot, the pillars are all  painted NORD colors. There used  to be tennis courts, barbecue pits  and benches under there,” he says.  “Then at some point they took them  out and turned off the lights.”     The Tony Hawk Foundation,  which supports youth access to  recreational programs (specifically  skate parks) through grants and  technical assistance, is consulting  with the Peach Orchard to help the  group draft a letter urging NORD  to incorporate skate parks — 13,  citywide, in all neighborhoods — in  its upcoming planning process.  (NORD plans seven community  meetings in September and October to gather input for its “Neighborhood Participation Plan.”)     Last year, Red Bull completed a  1,075-mile barge tour — “The Mississippi Grind” — with a “floating  skate park” and a host of professional skateboarders onboard. It  set sail from Minneapolis to New  Orleans, and when it anchored here,  Red Bull donated the floating park’s  structures for a skate park to be built  in New Orleans.     But the city wasn’t ready, despite  having the hardware; it needed funding for utilities, bathrooms and other  park necessities. New Orleans City  Park was out. The city intended for  the Lafitte Greenway, the planned  3.1-mile recreational area that will  stretch from Armstrong Park to  Lakeview, to house the skate park.  Right now its parts are in storage.  Groups like the Peach Orchard  and the Tony Hawk Foundation  aren’t waiting.     “We’re in the beginning stages of  building the framework for meeting  the needs of New Orleans youth,  especially as it applies to skateboarding,” says Tony Hawk Founda-

STATE LEGES TO RECONVENE?     Speaking at a Mandeville forum  organized to protest the imminent  closure of Southeast Louisiana  Hospital, a state-operated psychiatric  facility, state Treasurer John Kennedy lent his support for a proposed  special legislative session to address  hundreds of millions in state reductions pushed through by Gov. Bobby Jindal after the close of the regular  legislative session.      “This proposal [closing the hospital] is supposed to be because we  don’t have enough money, and that’s  just not accurate, folks,” Kennedy  said. In fact, on Thursday, the day after  the meeting, the state announced an  expected $130 million surplus for the  fiscal year that ended June 30. That  money will not be allocated until next  year’s legislative session, which begins April 2013. The hospital closure  is scheduled for October.      Quoting a report he said came from  the state legislative auditor, Kennedy  said, “I’ve read that Louisiana has as  many as 19,000 consultant contracts. …  You want to save money? That’s where  you start.”      Kennedy called on state legislators  to agree to a proposal by Rep. Jerome “Dee” Richard, I-Thibodaux,  to convene a special legislative  session to reconsider Jindal’s cuts.  Richard publicized the idea in an  email to supporters last week.     “Since our adjournment in June, there  has been almost a billion dollars in reductions to the state budget without any  input from the Legislature,” Richard’s  email reads. “I believe it is time for us, as  legislators, to aggressively reinsert ourselves into the budget process by using  the constitutional rights given to us.”     State Rep. Harold Ritchie,  D-Bogalusa, who also spoke at the  meeting, said he already agreed to the  special session. “I got the email from  Rep. Richard. I marked ‘yes.’ I said put

NEW BOND DEAL APPROVED The New Orleans City Council last week approved the issuance of up to $200 million in bonds that will remove from the city’s balance sheets a 12-yearold bond deal that went bad, costing the city millions more than anticipated. “This particular bond refunding will — if it gets approved, and, as we expect the bonds get refunded — take a significant step toward cleaning up the city’s balance sheets not only after Katrina but after the 2008 financial crisis,” said Deputy Mayor and Chief Administrative Officer Andy Kopplin. Most of the money will be used to pay off more than $100 million outstanding on the city’s $170 million in pension revenue bonds, issued to finance the city’s obligations to the New Orleans Firefighters Pension (the old system for firefighters hired before 1968), as well as terminate a complex, and ultimately failed, interest rate swap the city entered as part of the deal. The refinance will help the city avoid a crippling $120 million payout on the remaining principal amount from the 2000 deal, which would be due in March 2013, when the old bond deal expires. Repaying the bonds has cost the city about $19 million per year since 2008, when the city’s bond insurer lost its high credit rating and the bank marketing the bonds to investors took them off the market. Their continued presence on the books, as well as the looming payment deadline, have made credit ratings agencies wary of New Orleans, Kopplin said. “This particular credit on New Orleans’ balance sheet is the one they ask about repeatedly, often, and the one they get very panicked about,” Kopplin said. Though details were not immediately available, Kopplin said the new debt will be simpler, have a lower interest rate and will not extend beyond 2030, when the original bonds were to be paid off. Kopplin said he expects the refund to be

a Legacy of misery

on Exhibition Daily

Exhibition and full color catalogue available for viewing at:




ast week, hundreds of people in conservative St. Tammany Parish turned out to air heartfelt concerns about the impending closure of Southeast Louisiana Hospital (SELH) in Mandeville, which will leave metro New Orleans without a public mental health facility and erase nearly 600 jobs on the Northshore. One speaker told the crowd, “About 90 percent of the people around here voted for Jindal. This is a slap in the face.” The frustration in that statement is self-evident, but it pales in comparison to the pain soon to be inflicted upon the hospital’s patients and their families. Very soon, Northshore residents will know how New Orleans residents felt when Jindal shut down New Orleans Adolescent Hospital (NOAH) three years ago this month. Ironically, Jindal justified closing NOAH by saying patients would get the treatment they needed at SELH. Now he’s cutting off that option as well, forcing all who depend on public mental health care in southeast Louisiana to seek treatment in Pineville, more than 200 miles away. To add insult to injury, no one from the state Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) came from Baton Rouge to hear people’s concerns in St. Tammany. In typical fashion, Jindal himself was preparing to leave for yet another out-of-state campaign trip, this one to Montana and Indiana last Friday, Sept. 21. Meanwhile, in Baton Rouge, members of the Louisiana Independent Pharmacies Association gathered to oppose a new rule in the DHH budget. The new rule, adopted earlier this month, cuts $56 million from pharmacy reimbursements — but it will fall heaviest on locally owned drugstores. Louisiana pharmacists say the rule puts them at a disadvantage against national drug chains, which can purchase meds in bulk and use them as loss leaders to undercut local competitors. Perhaps, when he returns to Louisiana from his hectic schedule of national self-promotion, the governor can explain how putting locally owned pharmacies out of business somehow promotes economic development. As we went to press, the group Louisiana Progress was planning a Sept. 22 “Medicaid Misery Tour” of five south Louisiana health care facilities that have been or will be affected by Jindal’s Medicaid cuts — starting with NOAH, which was the last public mental health facility in the city. No doubt Team Jindal will dismiss the protests as the work of a liberal and/or Democratic front group. Louisiana Progress indeed leans leftward, but that doesn’t automatically make the group wrong. Besides, name-calling merely sidesteps the substantive issues raised by Jindal’s critics (a ploy the governor has

mastered). At the end of the day, Bobby Jindal will not be able to hide from, or sidestep, his legacy of human suffering. Like the Roman emperor Nero, who is said to have fiddled while Rome burned, Jindal blithely traipses across America pursuing his national ambitions while his constituents suffer in ever-growing numbers. Here is the unvarnished truth about Bobby Jindal’s tenure as governor: • Since he took office in 2008, state support for higher education has been cut by more than $426 million, and the median income of Louisiana households has declined every year — from more than $45,400 in 2008 to less than $41,800 in 2011. Last year, the national average household income rose by more than 1.5 percent. • Since 2008, Louisiana’s unemployment rate has doubled from 3.8 percent to 7.6 percent. Although that’s still lower than the national unemployment rate, the national rate has gone down since January 2011 — from 9.1 percent to 8.1 percent.

Jindal blithely traipses across America pursuing his national ambitions while his constituents suffer. • Since 2010, the percentage of Louisianans living in poverty has risen from 18.7 percent to 20.4 percent, and the percentage of children in poverty increased to 28.8 percent from 27.3 percent. • Also since 2010, the number of working-age adults who lack health insurance remains high at 25.7 percent. That figure is going to grow even more in the coming years, because Jindal — for purely self-serving political reasons — refuses to accept hundreds of millions of federal Medicaid dollars available under the Affordable Care Act. What is Bobby Jindal doing in the face of such numbers? This week, the governor is scheduled to be in Iowa on a bus tour seeking to oust one of that state’s Supreme Court justices for alleged “judicial activism.” Why this is our governor’s fight, or even his business, remains unexplained by Team Jindal. What’s obvious is that he continues to promote himself and his national ambitions at the expense of Louisiana and her people. We don’t know what Bobby Jindal is running for now, but it seems clear that he’s running from his legacy of misery in Louisiana.

Broussard’s Ministry he latest rumor about former Jefferson Parish president Aaron Broussard is that he has decided to form a prison ministry in anticipation of his conviction on federal criminal charges. He faces several dozen felony counts, including conspiracy, fraud and bribery, among others. several of Broussard’s friends have told me they heard the “prison ministry” talk from Broussard himself, so it’s more than just a rumor. of course, most of those same friends also shake their heads in wonder when they tell that story. some of them even wonder if Broussard has lost his senses. It’s not unusual for those who have found the Lord to be accused of insanity. Broussard’s well-documented penchant for showing his emotions publicly merely adds a measure of believability to such talk. After all, the other rumor — which I have heard from attorneys who I believe know a thing or two about this case — is that the feds offered Broussard a plea deal that would have let him off with probation … and he turned it down.

If that’s true, the presiding judge should appoint a sanity commission forthwith. After all, you don’t have to be an inmate to have a successful prison ministry. Just ask sister Helen Prejean. Meanwhile, Broussard’s last remaining co-defendant, former Jefferson Parish Attorney Tom Wilkinson, proved last week that he’s no loon. Wilkinson cut a deal to plead guilty to a single charge of conspiracy to commit misprision of a felony. In return for his expected testimony against Broussard, the feds are dropping 22 more serious felony counts against him. Conspiracy to commit misprision ranks among the mildest felonies in the federal law book, judging by the five-year maximum sentence it carries. Misprision itself can get you up to three years. Former parish CAo Tim Whitmer pleaded guilty to misprision in March, proving once again that those who jump on board the federal train first get the best seats. Wilkinson’s decision to hold out this long may cost him a few extra months in the pokey, but chances are he’ll do a lot less time

than the Rev. Broussard — especially if, as expected, he presents some juicy details of the alleged corruption in the Broussard administration. (Read: incriminating testimony not just against Broussard, but also, potentially, against River Birch owner Fred Heebe.) Wilkinson is expected to enter a guilty plea this week. Heebe has not been charged with anything … yet. In fact, in recent months he and his associates have scored a few points against the feds in the run-up to a potential

grand jury decision in his case. The feds no doubt would love to turn Broussard as well, and some speculate that they have given the impulsive former pol a deadline by which he can accept the latest deal. Word has it Broussard is determined to have his day in court — and his prison ministry. some courthouse observers have compared his damn-the-torpedos posture to the tack taken by former New orleans City Hall vendor Mark st. Pierre, who likewise stared down several dozen federal felony counts before being convicted on all of them. If Broussard wants to emulate st. Pierre, he should consider visiting him in jail. st. Pierre is singing a different tune now. In fact, he’s singing as much as he can in an effort to get his 17-year sentence reduced. If nothing else, a visit to st. Pierre might open Broussard’s eyes to the fact that while prison may afford an excellent opportunity for someone in search of a ministry, it sure as hell ain’t no sanctuary.

BlakepONTCHArTrAIN New Orleans Know-it-all Questions for Blake:


Hey Blake,

What’s the story behind Union Gen. Benjamin Butler who may be a relative of mine? I know he fought and won in New Orleans during the Civil War, by why do people hate him? Dick Butler

Maj. Gen. Benjamin Butler, shown here in an engraving made in 1864, was in charge of New Orleans for nine months after the city surrendered to Union troops. He was very unpopular. Until then, many women in New Orleans had been flouncing away or pretending nausea when soldiers appeared, and some even spit in their faces and emptied chamber pots on their heads. In a Christmas Eve farewell address to the citizens of New Orleans, Butler said he believed he had done all he could to improve conditions in the city. It is in this address that we see his attitude toward slavery: “Months of experience and of observation have forced the conviction that the existence of slavery is incompatible with the safety either of yourselves or of the Union. As the system has gradually grown to its present huge dimensions, it were best if [slavery] could be gradually removed; but it is better, far better, that it should be taken out at once, than that it should longer vitiate the social, political, and family relations of your country.” In the North, Butler enjoyed a fairly successful political career after the war. Called the “Hero of New Orleans,” he was suggested as a candidate for president of the United States in 1868.

Gambit > > september 25 > 2012

Dear Dick, There was no fighting in New Orleans during the Civil War because the city surrendered. “The city is yours by the power of brutal force and not by any choice or consent of its inhabitants,” New Orleans Mayor John Monroe wrote to Union Flag Officer David Farragut, whose 11 warships were near the city. “I beg you to understand that the people of New Orleans, while unable at this moment to prevent you from occupying this city, do not transfer their allegiance from the government of their choice to one which they have deliberately repudiated, and that they yield simply that obedience which the conqueror is enabled to extort from the conquered.” On April 29, 1862, Farragut sent a small force to the Custom House, where soldiers hoisted the Stars and Stripes. On May 1, Union troops under Maj. Gen. Benjamin Butler arrived to take official custody of the city. Known as the “Beast” for his harsh orders and his appearance and “Spoons Butler” for the rumor that he stole silverware from the houses of his hosts, Butler was widely hated in New Orleans. Many of his acts were offensive to New Orleans residents. In the nine months of his tenure, Butler is remembered most for hanging the gambler William Mumford, who had torn down a U.S. flag, and for issuing his notorious “Woman’s Order.” General Order No. 28 stated, “As the officers and soldiers of the United States have been subjected to repeated insults from the women calling themselves ‘ladies’ of New Orleans in return for the most scrupulous non-interference and courtesy on our part, it is ordered that hereafter when any female shall by word, gesture or movement insult or show contempt for any officer or soldier of the United States, she shall be treated as a woman of the town plying her avocation.”

Saints Class Despite early season losses, the Black and Gold aren’t making excuses.



you to find a single story, tweet or blog post expressing those sentiments by a member of the New Orleans Saints. No one from the Black and Gold is fingerpointing or throwing people under the bus in the media. For crying out loud, the team put up small, round mirrors in each of the players’ lockers as a symbolic message for players to look within themselves for ways to make the team better. The Monday after the loss in Carolina, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo requested reporters meet with him to discuss the Saints defense. He could have waited until his customary Friday slot, but he didn’t, choosing instead to face the music. Quarterback Drew Brees (above) could be a life coach with the amount of positive messages he voices in his interviews. That’s part of the plan. The Saints have painstakingly searched for and recruited talented players who also have character. For example, after losing to Carolina, wide receiver Lance Moore tweeted: “At the bottom right now. We must get back up. Starting w myself. I have to be better. I will be better. Stay together who dat nation.” Wins and losses are what matter at the end of the day, but isn’t it nice that the home team isn’t a reality show gone bad? Leading into the Kansas City game, players made no excuses about the struggles of the early season. More important, they said they were leaning on one another in an effort to find solutions. One can’t help but feel the team’s performance actually matters to them. I believe a person’s true colors come out during the most difficult times. Right now I see a team facing adversity, but rather than walking away, it stands and faces the challenge. It’s something to be proud of in this day and age of professional athletics.

t can be hard to find something positive in the way the New Orleans Saints started the 2012 season. It feels like a hangover from cheap liquor. The offseason was ugly, with suspensions, continuing drama about those suspensions — and a tough-to-stomach appearance of a team that wears the same Black and Gold colors as our beloved Saints, but doesn’t seem to be the team from whom we’ve come to expect beautiful victories. The week following the Saints’ 35-27 loss to the Carolina Panthers Sept. 16, something struck me that not only is a positive, but should give Saints fans a reason to love their team more. Our players have class. Entering the Kansas City Chiefs game Sept. 23, the Saints defense was ranked dead last. The offense looked like a shell of itself during the first pair of games. Yet the team kept it together. Compare that with former NBA player Latrell Sprewell, who told the Pioneer Press in St. Paul, Minn., in 2004 that he didn’t know why he should care about a team that wouldn’t give him a contract extension (he was making $14.6 million per season with the Minnesota Timberwolves at the time). “Why would I want to help them win a title?” he asked. “They’re not doing anything for me. I’ve got a lot at risk here. I’ve got my family to feed.” A yearly ritual in New York when the Giants lose a few games is for someone on the New York team to mouth off to a reporter, blaming the losses on a lack of leadership from the head coach, quarterback or someone. Some players even say the losses pile up because the coach doesn’t use those individuals enough. The system, the field, the organization — name it and it’s been used as an excuse. Yet I challenge

the epic story of a flower who longs to love and be loved, The Lily’s Revenge draws audiences into an otherworldly theatrical Carnival, clocking in at five hours and featuring a cast of more than 40 actors. The Lily’s Revenge (oct. 1821) is a collaboration between southern rep, several other companies and individual artists. Created by fringe theatre artist taylor mac, the original work debuted off Broadway in 2009 to critical acclaim. since then, southern rep artistic director Aimee hayes, who worked with mac in new york, has been eager to bring the production to new orleans. “it is like mardi gras in its purest form,” hayes says. “it’s that kind of theatrical spectacle. the spectacle is in the bodies, and the movement, and the pure joy of ecstasy.” the drama tells the story of lily, a potted plant who aspires to become a man in order to marry the woman of his dreams. through the course of his transformation, lily encounters obstacles and allies and attempts to transcend traditional expectations of love and marriage. hayes calls the play a love story and a hero’s journey, but it also is a multimedia experience that defies easy categorization. each of the five acts is helmed by a different director, and there is a series of sideshows during each intermission, so the production aspires

Ring by Angela Hernandez


Nguyen offers dainty earrings Richard Lee Mathis (background) and bold and Tom Mathis cocktail rings. opened Symmetry Tom Jewelers in 1975. Mathis’ own PHOTO by designs fuse CHeRyl GeRbeR contemporary with Old World style. His pieces range from gold cross necklaces to men’s belt buckles. However, his engagement rings are the most popular items in his design portfolio. The styles range from diamond settings with intricate engravings and New Orleans details like fleurs-de-lis to more traditional designs. Some rings can be made with the customer’s choice of precious metal, diamonds or colored gemstones. While Tom has worked on large projects, such as designing class rings for Tulane University, he prides himself on crafting one-of-a-kind jewelry for individual clients. Through 3-D technology, Symmetry works with clients who want to create their own custom designs. The better prepared the clients are, with clear concepts and design sketches, the easier it is to create the ring they want, Richard says. Symmetry’s ability to create something that doesn’t yet exist sets it apart from other jewelry stores, he says. “There are very few things in life now that can truly belong to you,” Richard says. “If you come in and get a piece of jewelry made, it’s really going to be the only piece that is made that way.”

hether worn for ornamental or sentimental reasons, jewelry can offer an artistic reflection of its owner’s identity. The belief that jewelry is an art form has inspired Richard and Tom Mathis, co-owners of Symmetry Jewelers and Designers (8138 Hampson St., 504-861-9925; www.symmetryjewelers. com), since 1975. “We were one of the first … in the country to start featuring jewelry as more of a gallery exhibit,” Richard Mathis says. Richard styles display cases in a way that resembles an art exhibit more than a jewelry store. Rather than placing pieces in neat rows, he artfully arranges them on trays and in mannequin hands, grouping them by designer so customers can get a feel for each jewelry maker’s body of work and aesthetic. The full-service store offers antique jewelry restoration, repairs and custom designs. It features the work of local, national and international jewelry artists, as well as in-house designer Tom Mathis. “Our mission, when we (were) first founded, was showing individual jewelry designers who make each piece,” Richard says. James Carter, whose collections have been sold at Symmetry since the 1980s, is among those designers. He depicts dreamy nature motifs using gold, silver and cloisonne. There are the rustic yet elegant cuffs and necklaces from the Juvite collection by Greg Kibersky, a Polish designer. For those seeking more feminine pieces, the collection by Nina

Serendipity open in Mid-City

Serendipity (3700 Orleans Ave., 504-407-0818), the new restaurant from former Green Goddess chef Chris DeBarr, is open and serving dinner nightly. The restaurant is inside the American Can Apartments building in Mid-City. Serendipity represents a change in style and ambition for the restaurant space here, formerly a location of the Olive Branch Cafe chain, and it’s a quantum leap in size for deBarr and his crew compared to the tiny dining room and kitchen at Green Goddess. The chef says his approach here is “more spare” than what he was doing at the Green Goddess, but fans of his cooking will recognize his eclectic style, his passion for exotic ingredients and a few familiar dishes. The menu includes “shrimp ‘wearing a grass skirt,’” which deBarr describes as a “tiki re-interpretation of New Orleansstyle barbecue shrimp,” with shrimp wrapped in phyllo strands and roasted. There also are Malaysian red curry goat empanadas and grilled ruston peaches topped with blue cheese and Nueske’s page 39

he traffic cloverleaf where North Causeway Boulevard meets I-10 has the usual exit ramp amenities: a giant gas station, chain motels and a few options for road meals. But those restaurants are where things veer from the norm. The denny’s outlet here was long ago transformed into City diner, now a small local chain of 24-hour eateries that offers pancake plates and crawfish etouffee. Nearby is the newer addition of Chef ron’s Gumbo Stop, which looks like a roadside diner but eats like a New Orleans neighborhood restaurant. This means red beans and rice, fried chicken and, of course, gumbo several ways. That sounds familiar, but a lot of it is done with a different accent. The seafood gumbo has a thick, mediumdark roux but also big chunks of stewed tomato, in line with an old-fashioned style hardly ever seen in local restaurants these days. And while the po-boys are straightforward, Chef ron’s Gumbo Stop also makes torpedoes, which are essentially poboy sliders, served three at a time with a mix-and-match format of fried oysters, roast beef and such. Their stubby, pistolette-style “torpedo rolls” are a regional specialty of rhode Island, where restaurant owner and namesake ron Iafrate grew up. He came to New Orleans to work in big hotel kitchens, and earlier this year he struck out on his own, taking over a 20-seat cafe that shares a Metairie strip mall with a

nail salon and a gay bar. His menu covers a lot of ground, and it has some peaks and valleys. Only those with a high tolerance for spice should approach the fiery dipping sauce for the small, thick-crusted boudin balls, but the sauteed chicken imperial came out soggy and bland. The standard-issue fries are little more than filler, but other sides including baked macaroni and a bright red, tomato-laden jambalaya are homespun and satisfying. Then there’s the bayou scampi, sort of a shrimp Creole melded with buttery, barbecue shrimp-style sauce singing with garlic and peppers, all ladled around a mound of aromatic jasmine rice. A slab of blackened catfish was closer to bronzed but was still delicious, and the daily specials are always good bargains, such as a pork chop almost the size of a laptop and covered in brown gravy and spicy-tart banana peppers. This is a small, hard-working place that tries to do a lot — offering trays of torpedoes and gumbo by the gallon for catering needs, a full but lightly stocked bar for the dine-in crowd — and I suspect a shorter menu might better focus its tiny kitchen. Still, pull off the highway at this unassuming spot and you’ll find Iafrate, perhaps a waitress and, in most cases, more food than you should finish if you plan to stay awake for the rest of the drive.

A former Ursuline convent, the chateau is located in the Costieres de Nimes Appellation d’Origine Controlee (AOC) in southern rhone, neighboring the languedoc region to the west. A blend of primarily syrah and grenache, the wine was vinified in temperature-controlled steel followed by six months aging in concrete tanks and 500-liter barrels. This rose exemplifies the southern French winemaking style. In the glass, it offers fragrances of ripe strawberry, watermelon, minerals and citrus. On the palate, the wine is dry and crisp with raspberry, melon, strawberries and minerality leading to a lingering finish. Serve chilled with spicy boiled or grilled seafood, gumbo, Asian cuisines, pizza, fowl, barbecue and a variety of meats and cheeses. Buy it at: Keife & Co. Drink it at: Stella!

Most dishes cost between $8 and $12, and there’s a five-course tasting menu with more of DeBarr’s characteristic dishes, like ravioli fashioned from golden beets instead of pasta and his “grilled ‘spooky’ wild mushrooms,” prepared with huitlacoche, a rare (but edible) Mexican corn fungus. For dessert, look for “magic carpet foie gras fantasia,” a Moroccan-spiced pastry ring filled with foie gras mousse, and also an interpretive homage to the Hubig’s Pie, which will change frequently.

orn in Spain to a family that hails from Leicestershire, England, Georgie Brooks Myrtle moved to the U.S. in 1981. Today, through her Covingtonbased company Georgie’s English Kitchen & Garden (803 W. 22nd Ave., Covington, 985-264-5044; she prepares traditional English foods. Her shortbread, scones and lemon curd are available at groceries around the region, and you can find her at the Crescent City Farmers Market in Mid-City on Thursdays and the Covington Farmers Market on Saturdays serving cakes, breads and soups. She also provides traditional English tea catering for parties and showers.

How did you start your business? Brooks Myrtle: I was a stay-at-home mom, and as the children were growing up we always had teatime, based on the family recipes. As the children moved out, I’d still make shortbread, which became the hit of church fundraisers and the like. People encouraged me to sell it, and really at the start it was just selling to friends and putting fliers up at schools and my church. In 2008, I started at the farmers markets. It’s been a big surprise the way it’s caught on. I could be at Home Depot now and someone will say, “Oh, you’re the scone lady.” Do you ever feel you need to be an ambassador for English food? BM: England isn’t really known for its food beyond fish and chips and steak and kidney pies, so there is a little education that goes into it. It helps that I have the English accent because as soon as I open my mouth people say, “That must be the real thing.” What’s amazing to me is that we’re in one of the most famous parts of the world for food. So for my food to be appreciated here and greeted so graciously feels like quite an honor. What do you have for customers who aren’t about to sit down for full formal tea? BM: You don’t have to think along the lines of hosting a tea party but maybe just treating yourself to a really nice breakfast over the weekend. In this day and age, with all the worries out there, if you’re having shortbread and lemon curd with strawberries and Champagne, then life isn’t so bad.— IAN MCNULTY

scanio takes over at Emeril’s Delmonico

There’s a new chef at the helm of Emeril’s Delmonico (1300 St. Charles Ave., 504-525-4937; and a revamped menu as well. Anthony Scanio, previously the restaurant’s executive sous chef, is now chef de cuisine. He replaces Spencer Minch, who has left the company, says a spokeswoman for Lagasse. Like previous menus here, Scanio’s starts with a long list of charcuterie and cheeses and includes dry-aged steaks. There are fewer of these steaks, however, and a greater emphasis on contemporary Creole dishes such as jumbo Gulf shrimp fricassee, smothered chicken, drum meuniere, chorizo-stuffed pork loin with Old New Orleans Rumbased jus and grilled Gulf swordfish. It’s the latest change for a restaurant with a long history in New Orleans. Delmonico was first opened in 1895 by Anthony Commander, a member of the family that originally opened Commander’s Palace. It was named after – but not related to — the much older Delmonico restaurant in New York. Lagasse, who

began his own New Orleans career at Commander’s Palace, bought the Delmonico property in 1997.

We can’t always bring our pets out with us for a night on the town. But at a beer festival this weekend, we can at least hoist a few cold ones in their honor and for their benefit. The annual New Orleans on Tap Beer Festival is in City Park from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29. The festival is organized by the local Bulldog taverns ( and the Louisiana SPCA, which is its beneficiary, and is sponsored by Abita Brewing Company. The outdoor event features some 200 beers, which range from global brands to local offerings from up-andcoming microbreweries. Admission is free and guests pay as they go, buying tickets for samples of the various beers.

A true visionary, however, would first toss them in Buffalo sauce and then serve them with something called ‘bleu-sabi’ dipping sauce, which we can only assume is a mix of blue cheese, wasabi and the tears of Anthony Bourdain.” — Keith Wagstaff, writing for the Details magazine blog, describing “Vegas fries,” one of the “five most absurd menu items” at celebrity chef Fieri’s restaurant Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, which opened this month in new York.

Prime Grille (3162 Dauphine St., 504301-1740), which opened quietly earlier this month in the Bywater, has been rolling out its service in stages, and there is quite a bit on tap here. Prime Grill is now serving lunch and early dinner (until 8 p.m.) Wednesday through Saturday and brunch on Sunday. Weekday and Saturday dinner service will continue later into the evening once the full schedule is in place, which could begin as early as this week. Full dinner service will feature a menu that eschews contemporary Creole flavors and instead springs from its owners’ Midwestern background. Some examples include bison rib-eye, venison stew over pappardelle noodles and salmon en croute, a dish akin to a beef Wellington but made with fish. “There are enough restaurants that fake the Creole thing and don’t do it really well. We’re both from the Midwest so we decided why not do something that we know and do well?” says Kevin Fruits, who opened Prime with his partner Matt Cummings. “It’s a very Midwest, meat-and-potatoes thing. This isn’t small plates, this is something you’ll be able to share,” he adds. Fruits and Cummings are service industry veterans from Indiana. In 2009, they opened the Decadence Shoppe (806 N. Rampart St., 529-8874;, a cafe and bakery on the edge of the French Quarter. For Prime, they took over the historic corner building that was home to Bywater Bar-B-Q before that neighborhood fixture closed earlier this year. The lunch menu Prime Grille is now serving features bison, lamb and turkey burgers, lavash wraps and salads, and brunch includes omelets, pancakes and unusual items like Scotch eggs, which are hardboiled, wrapped in bacon and fried. A small back bar is being expanded, and Fruits says they plan to run it as a martini and wine bar with its own separate menu of appetizers. He says they also plan to serve raw oysters at a walk-up window fronting the sidewalk. The partners also are working on a third restaurant called Comforts, and it’s planned for the North Rampart Street building in the French Quarter that was previously the jazz and brass band club Donna’s Bar & Grill. Fruits says they’re planning a menu for Comforts that will focus on game meats, including elk steaks, ostrich filet and duck confit pot pies.

Wax On Never Records debuts in New Orleans. By Alex Woodward


    “When I first went there it was really like an  outsider experience, and I wanted to be inside,” he  says. “All it takes with a record store is expressing an  earnestness or an interest — in my particular case,  collecting a certain style of music. All of a sudden I  accrued all this knowledge, and a year later I was the  guy who collected this one thing — me and my crew,  little mod kids, into The Jam and The Clash, collecting everything to do with that.”     Dischord regular and cover artist Jason Farrell  also designed the Never Records logo, and Arturo  Vego, who designed the iconic Ramones T-shirt,  will design the New Orleans edition of the Never  Records T-shirt.     “We’ll probably do some in-store screenprinting  and we’ll knock them out for free,” Riederer says.  “You know, all that D.C. punk rock positivity stuff.”     The “store” will look like one, though obviously a  little more abstract — signs in the window advertising  Never Records, the cash register smothered in stickers, “fake” record sleeves and posters, and record  bins stuffed with LPs recorded at previous installations (though with a section reserved for the New  Orleans sessions). Visitors can listen to the local  recordings and library of past recordings.     “I liked that air of inscrutability,” he says. “It’s not  really important that it’s real or fake to me. What’s  important is that people have this experience.”     Gallery owner Jonathan Ferrara donated use of  his former gallery space on Carondelet Street to 

serve as the installation site, free of  the restrictions of a museum or largTed Riederer displays one of er gallery space. “It can be whatever  the records cut at his Never it wants to be without being a part  Records studio/store. of an institutional framework,” Ferrara says. “We can have punk rock  Never Records OCT concerts until midnight.”     Over the last two years, Fer841 Carondelet St. rara has helped raise money  THRU www.secretshape. and received support from the  NOV com/neverrecords Downtown Development District,  the Arts Council of New Orleans  and Abita Brewery to get Never  Records in New Orleans. He says  the project serves as an archive that distills and  captures the city’s silver lining, and it will show the  national and international arts scenes what New  Orleans can do.     “To make an archive of where we are right now,  it’s kind of serendipitous,” Ferrara says. “What  better time to take an archival snapshot of where we  are right now?”     Riederer, however, did receive a critical email from a  man who says Never Records overlooks the musicality and artistry of studio engineering.     “No one has ever in the 600 musicians and performers that have come through Never Records had  that voice,” Riederer says. “I said, ‘Hey, man, I appreciate your opinion. Why don’t you come into the store  and read your critique and we’ll cut it to vinyl.’” 



Gambit > > september 25 > 2012

ed Riederer calls from 24th Street in  Manhattan, which reminds him that his Never  Records project deviates from the highend contemporary art galleries surrounding him.  The project, which makes its full-size U.S. debut in  New Orleans in October, recreates a record store  experience, with Riederer recording and pressing vinyl  records for artists performing on site. The installation  not only becomes a love letter to the record store, but  a gallery and a shared space for artists, onlookers and  music fans, including Riederer, whose role as engineer  helming a vinyl-cutting lathe creates a symbiotic  performance art between Riederer and the performers.     “People are making art on my platform,” he says.  “I’m fiercely protective of that idea.”     Riederer helped open a “record shop” in a shuttered Tower Records in New York as part of an  installation there in 2010, with more than 40 artists  and musicians, including The Ramones’ artist Arturo  Vega and Exene Cervenka from X. Never Records  launched in The 2010 Liverpool Biennial, and also created residences in London and Derry, Northern Ireland.     “It’s really important I’m the guy talking to everybody  and showing them how the lathe works, and how  wonderfully chemical it is to have these organic wave  patterns cut into vinyl — I’ll have a microscope to show  everybody that,” he says. “Without sounding aphoristic  and cheesy, my goal is to re-enchant the world with it,  the whole idea that all vinyl is just waves. I think that’s  the most amazing thing. It’s the stuff of eardrums and  heartbeats and fingerprints and all that wonderful stuff. I  don’t consider it an old technology or a new technology.  I consider it a natural force, or an elemental thing.”     Riederer records the performer (whether a punk or  brass band or spoken word artist) and cuts two copies:  one for the performer, and one for the record store.     “I’m not really a vinyl snob, and I love digital downloads and making sessions available digitally and  letting (artists) do whatever they want with it as part  of the whole ‘open-source’ part of the project,” he  says. “What I care about is the actual vinyl we cut. ... I  have this object we both created together. It becomes  a relic or ephemera of this socially active moment.”     Riederer fell in love with record store culture as a  teenager growing up near Washington, D.C., after his  mother was admitted to a mental hospital when he was  16. Skip Groff’s Yesterday and Today record store in  Maryland, where punk label Dischord Records got its  legs (Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye and Guy Picciotto were  early mentors for Ted), became Riederer’s holy place —  a school, a church and a social scene.

Cate Le Bon

CYRK, the 2012 changeling by Welsh chanteuse Cate Le Bon, sneaked into the new year by the slimmest of margins. Bobbing like a message in a bottle, it hit our shores Jan. 17, surfacing in the middle of a retrospective dead sea where the attention span for current releases falls somewhere between undying hangovers and stillborn resolutions. CYRK II, her August EP/epilogue, thusly Cate Le Bon serves two purposes: a safe deposit for the SEPt 10 p.m. Friday guarded parts of an otherwise gregarious recording session, and a gentle reminder Circle Bar that one of the most striking LPs of the year 1032 St. Charles Ave. might have glanced by. However you enter Le Bon’s world — through the elongated, psych/rock 588-2616 circus tent or the elegant, intimate sideshow — a trove of riches awaits. Tropicalia guitars buzz and bend, drums knock out regular rhythms irregularly, a blustering trumpet or lounging piano crash the party. As a singer, Le Bon sidesteps notes like Nico in a Stereolab coat; as a songwriter, she’s as assured as her delivery is detached. The respective centerpieces of her recordings, “Fold the Cloth” and “That Moon,” illustrate the impressive spectrum of temperatures: The former cooly undulates like paisley sheets on the line, while the latter yearns for a distant lover, burning with desire, turning to distraction. “Pulling fences is a sound I know, a sound I love,” the former Penboyr farm girl pines. “And for his eyes/ I scan the skies.” And finding nothing, she goes back inside. Alexis & the Samurai opens. Call for ticket information. — NOAH BONAPARTE PAIS

Looper (R) Directed by Rian Johnson Starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt Wide release

“VISUALLY STUNNING” James Rocchi, MSN Movies





Gambit > > september 25 > 2012

two men named Joe sit in a diner on the outskirts of a dystopian metropolis in writerdirector Rian Johnson’s New Orleans-shot Looper. “I don’t want to talk about time travel,” says one Joe to the other. “If we start talking about time travel we’re going to be here all day making diagrams with straws.” the subject is hard to avoid because the two Joes are actually the same man, separated by 30 years but brought together by an ostensibly banned time machine. Every science fiction fan knows how quickly time-travel stories can fall apart as past and future events influence each other, threatening to destroy the required internal logic. Looper repeatedly alludes to this familiar pitfall by way of delivering the news: Johnson’s smart and entertaining sci-fi action movie deserves a hero’s welcome on the strength of its solid storyline alone. the inherent messiness of time travel lies at the heart of Looper’s strikingly original premise. the story takes place mostly in 2044, an era in which time travel hasn’t yet been discovered. thirty years in the future, it’s fully operational, but prohibited because its effects are too difficult to control. Only the 2074 mafia has use of time travel, and solely to dispose of its enemies. Victims are sent back in time exactly 30 years for instant assassination and disposal by young hit men called “loopers.” the name derives from a clause in the loopers’ contract. to fully clean up the murderous mess, each looper agrees to later travel back in time and be killed by his younger self, who then retires. Loopers know they will enjoy 30 additional years of carefree living before looping back to suffer their own grisly fates. It’s not hard to imagine something might go wrong in regards to the loopers’ contractual agreement. But that’s where Looper’s predictability ends. Johnson, who burst onto the indie film scene in 2005 with the self-financed teen noir Brick, is the kind of filmmaker who storyboards every shot in advance and sticks to the plan once the camera starts rolling. Looper has no wasted moments, and every twist and turn feels not only vetted for story sense but carefully designed for maximum impact. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis handle the younger and older Joes with steady professionalism. Gordon-Levitt’s three-hour daily makeup ritual to render him more Willis-like may be the movie’s only major misstep — they just look nothing alike. Jeff Daniels is a wonderful surprise playing against type as a vicious gangster who traveled back in time to serve as boss of the loopers. “trust me, I’m from the future,” he says. “You’ll want to live in China.” It’s hard to say why Hollywood has such a tough time coming up with intelligent and engaging works of science fiction. But that phenomenon only makes a movie like Looper more satisfying. Johnson’s film will almost certainly be hailed as a classic by the legions of sci-fi fanatics who are forced to live in a perpetual state of cinematic deprivation. Enjoy it while you can. — KEN KORMAN

New works at St. Claude Avenue galleries

Are people becoming more generic? Like it or not, we are increasingly wired into an invisible world of electronic networks that know way too much about us. How long before they take over and turn us into hi-def replicas of ourselves? Such are the thoughts inspired by Sarah Amacker’s graphically modified photos that stylishly flatten her subjects into two dimensions. Some even have bar codes. Self Check Out: Who Am I? (pictured) is emblematic, a geometrically exaggerated high-fashion babe no doubt with perfect teeth somewhere behind the big tHRU Pop Art: Mixed-media graphics by bar code that displays her Sarah Amacker oct identity as a commodity.

More graphical extrapolations appear at Barrister’s Gallery, in Wendell Brunious’ Buried Alive painterly pop collages of comic strip characters interwoven with visions of black female stardom, most pointedly in the form of Whitney Houston. Something about the way this is layered is both musical and wavelike, suggesting a visual dirge for the drowned diva. the mood turns ambiguous in Vanessa Centeno’s abstract compositions, where viscous reds vie with more bilious shades in works mingling saturated sensuality with creepy science fiction overtones. If this sounds noir, it is. Ryn Wilson’s large pseudo film stills of elegant women carrying valises deep into foggy forests, or appearing only as a pair of shapely lifeless legs under a blue velvet dress, convey a darkly atmospheric romanticism, a hint of looming oblivion accompanied, implicitly, by an elegant soundtrack. — D.

Capturing the raw and vibrant energy of city street life, particularly of those living on the margins, is no easy task. playwright lanford wilson sought to do that in Balm in Gilead, which premiered in 1965. at a skeezy all-night diner in new York, a cast of 24 eccentric drug addicts, prostitutes, pimps, waitresses and bums swirl about in a kaleidoscope of vulgar jokes, crass hustles, quick scores, ditched checks, jealous spats and exposed hurt and need. tHru Balm in Gilead it’s a challenging play to mount, but SEpT 7:30 p.m. thu.-sun. under the inspired direction of mark routhier the combined casts of the noCCa, nims black nola project, Cripple Creek theatre box theatre Company and others turned in a riveting 2800 Chartres st. show at noCCa. wilson constructed a difficult piece, frequently calling for multiple competing conversations and conflicts with more than 15 actors on stage. routhier does an excellent job directing traffic, particularly in the opening 30 minutes, when the action is the most frenetic. in just brief lines and gestures, many players establish themselves and the entertainingly hectic setting: emilie whelan as a brassy prostitute, ian Hoch as a desperate addict begging on the street, a.J. allegra as a wisecracking junkie, alex martinez wallace as a preening hustler, James bartelle as a hustler and andrew Vaught as a serially high neighborhood character, who occasionally addresses the audience directly. there also are many other strong bit parts rounding out the cast of transvestites, thieves and prostitutes. Cecile Casey Covert and Katie gelfand’s costumes are wonderfully varied and hilariously garish where necessary. into the mix walks Darlene (Kristin witterschein), who’s recently arrived in new York from Chicago. not having much money, she’s taken a room in the neighborhood. at the diner counter she meets Joe (James Yeargain), a heroin user who’s dug himself into a hole with a dealer. Darlene is naive, but they still hit it off and share common feelings of working their way out of tough spots. in a much longer conversation with ann the prostitute (whelan), Darlene offers a long monologue about marriage plans that never materialized. the humorous ordeal of getting a marriage license reveals that even much more conventional lives are fraught with abrupt life-altering decisions, mistakes and disappointment. it’s not a completely unconventional narrative, but much of the show is carried by the tone and tempo of flighty conversations, brief and sharp exchanges and the glimpses of desire, hurt and humor. the cast provides a rush of memorably colorful characters and personalities. there are a couple of uneven moments, like when a narrator suddenly addresses the audience, or final flourishes when characters repeat lines from earlier in the piece. but ultimately, the cast succeeds in making Balm in Gilead a warm and inviting piece about the human sides of people in tough straits. — will CoViello

In the flash of neon pink that is Legally Blonde: The Musical’s opener “Omigod You Guys,” the tone of this musical is quickly apparent. the shrieking excitement of the girls of Delta Nu for Elle Woods’ (Hannah Rachal) upcoming (or, so they think) engagement might scare those unfamiliar with the strange world of Greek life. Although sugary, the show is self-aware, and a sense of humor and a game cast — which includes two dogs — propel theatre tHRu Legally Blonde: 13’s production. SEpt The Musical the word “subtle” doesn’t come to mind 8 p.m. Fri.-Sat., in describing the 2001 Reese Witherspoon 2 p.m. Sun. comedy that inspired the musical, but the stage iteration makes the film seem relatively Rivertown theaters quiet. the video essay Elle submits with her Harfor the vard Law School application in the film is transPerforming Arts lated onstage as a splashy showstopper with a 325 Minor St., Kenner marching band and a hip-hop — as interpreted by Malibu sorority girls — dance breakdown. (504) 461-9475 theatre 13’s take on that number is slightly scaled down from the Broadway version, but there’s still gymnastics, a cheerleader stunt and Kelly Fouchi and Heidi Malnar’s fresh, energetic choreography. that cast members weren’t gasping for breath by that scene, which follows a well-paced block of songs, shows their stamina. Physically, Rachal is perfectly suited for Elle, and she’s good at snapping from sorority girl to whip-smart student. She also handled Elle’s difficult vocal parts, which culminate in a long-sustained note in Act 1 closer “So Much Better.” She could have pushed further as an actor, though. Her trio of sorority friends who morph into the Greek chorus later in the show (Kayla Herrington, Katie Lynn Cotaya and Anna toujas Rosenberg) are capable singers and deft comedians. Local personal injury attorney — and frequent stage actor — Greg DiLeo plays the smarmy Professor Callahan. tammy Mansfield was funny and likeable as Paulette, the wise beautician Elle befriends. A post-sugar-rush crash sets in during Act 2, which features the cast singing while jump-roping (again, the stamina), an Irish dance number and the film’s “bend and snap” scene blown up into a pop number. Janie Heck, playing the icy Vivienne Kensington, reveals a fine singing voice at the end. Despite a few lines of sexual innuendo, this show is best-suited for teens attuned to “omigod” youth culture. But everyone can appreciate that like Elle herself, the show is smarter than it seems. — LAuREN LABORDE

Last year, Lightwire Theater amazed everyone with its original puppet show Darwin the Dinosaur. Lightwire’s puppets are human performers dressed in black wearing electroluminescent wires to outline characters. The visual effect is spectacular, and Lightwire takes things a step further by presenting engaging stories. Audiences love the characters and the many comic side effects. Lightwire’s new show, The Ugly Duckling, is once again a total delight. The company opened the show after returning from the semi-finals of NBC’s America’s Got Talent. The new show begins with Aesop’s fable The Tortoise and the Hare, about a race between a turtle and an overconfident rabbit. The Hare believes he cannot possibly lose, and he gets distracted by whatever comes along — in this modern version, his cellphone, a TV set and a clump of carrots. Eventually he dashes to the finish line, but the Tortoise beats him by a hair. This summary fails to capture the flavor of the show. There’s plenty of music, dancing, singing and gags. The staging is unique, and the colored outlines are not garish but poetic. Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling also gets a makeover. “We didn’t want it to be just about beauty,” Eleanor Carney said after the show. “I’m a boy. I wanted a fight,” said Ian Carney, her husband, who choreographed and directed the show. The ugly duckling does not simply grow into a beautiful adult. She rescues one of the ducklings from the clutches of a cat in a thrilling ninja battle of beasts. All ends happily amid good feelings and gratitude. Ian Carney and Corbin Popp created the show. It’s performed by the troupe in ingenious costumes they built from shin guards, skateboards and other materials. Lightwire Theater is producing excellent work. Don’t miss this show. — DALT WONK

At a time when the entire publishing industry is undergoing a sea change as the relative merits of digital and print media sort themselves out, there are certain books that will be unaffected by the turmoil. A classic example is Nocturnes (Luna Press), a large-format volume of photogravures by Josephine Sacabo and poems by Dalt Wonk, both of whom I have known for years. As a beautifully produced limited edition it is something of an art object in its own right, a collectible that, while pricey ($125), is still affordable to anyone who truly wants one. In it, Sacabo’s stunning images appear as mysterious, even romantic, paeans to the power of dreams, darkness and the lunar light of the psyche. Happy Birthday, Mr. Faulkner: SEPT book signings for John ShelWonk’s deftly evocative poems, ton Reed’s Dixie Bohemia: A each printed on translucent velFrench Quarter Circle in the lum, segue seamlessly into her 1920s, Josephine Sacabo haunting visions distilled from the and Dalt Wonk’s Nocturnes raw materials of her long personal and David Armand’s history in the French Quarter, southern France and Mexico, as The Pugilist’s Wife well as her lifelong immersion 6 p.m. Tuesday in the works of great artists and The Cabildo thinkers through the ages, from 701 Chartres St. Rainer Maria Rilke’s poems to 524-2940 for reservations Gaston Bachelard’s philosophical ruminations on reverie. Silent echoes of Chopin’s Nocturnes haunt these dusky, luminous images where dreamy female forms seem to emerge from the shadows of antiquity. If this hints at 19th century romanticism, there also is more to it than that because Sacabo and Wonk’s immersion in the subjective reflects a resurgent critical appreciation for the importance of non-rational modes of understanding. Or as Sacabo puts it: “We dream in images. Images are at the most basic level of our true psychic reality. Our dreams are the metaphorical pictures of our individual realities. I believe that through them we can forge a deeper connection between ourselves and the world. By uniting dream and reality we can produce an art that will resonate and in the process learn something about ourselves and others. I photograph things not as I ‘see’ them but rather as I might have ‘dreamt’ them.” And for that we should be grateful.

A successful attorney who was currently employed by a local law firm in New Orleans was exploring the possibility of finding a new position at a firm that he had targeted. Discretion was extremely important and we had to proceed without alerting his current employer. We retooled his résumé and kept the contact information confidential, utilizing online research to find the names of the principals and hiring managers at the firm. We also created a compelling cover letter that resulted in an interview and an offer at a significantly higher level of compensation, which he accepted.

The legal profession is actually one of the few areas, along with medical professionals, engineers, scientists, and executives, that still have fairly good representation through local recruiters and headhunters. I can recommend some if you contact me privately. In fact, those recruiters often send their clients to me first to spruce up their résumés. Examples of additional details that could be helpful to your résumé include:

PART TIME Psychiatry Clinic: Support Staff

Dear Steve,

I have created many job-winning résumés for attorneys, including those who are staying in the legal profession, as well as those exploring opportunities in the business world. I think your wife is correct, your résumé is very bland. It contains very brief descriptions of your associate positions at several area law firms, and you actually don’t provide the type of detail that a prospective employer would need in Grant Cooper order to justify extending an interview. Also, Steve, I see in your résumé that you received your Juris Doctor degree from Loyola School of Law, but there is no mention of your GPA, your graduation rank in the class, any activities you may have participated in, or any continuing legal education you have completed since graduating. If these items are favorable, they could help to spice up your résumé. For example, if you graduated in the top 25% of your class, if you participated in extracurricular activities, or if you excelled in Moot Court.

Needed immediately for upcoming roles. $150-$300 day depending on job requirements. No experience, all looks. 1-800-560-8672, for casting times/locations.
