A dedicated pastor spreads his urban ministry in a crime-ridden neighborhood. By Phillip Manuel

T

he last thing Pastor John Gerhardt wants is to be perceived as a great white hope who moved to New Orleans to save Central City, although he could claim success in saving at least small parts of it, particularly the young people he’s mentored over the years. Most recently he saved a piece of the neighborhood’s history when his ministry bought St. Monica’s Catholic Church and renovated it as the new location of his Castle Rock Community Church and Urban Impact Ministries (UIM). Castle Rock will celebrate its grand opening with a weekend of activities Oct. 26-28, beginning with the blessing and dedication of the new facility at 3 p.m. Friday. (For a schedule of activities, visit www.urbanimpact.org.) Gerhardt has ministered to people in Central City for 14 years from a former bank building and dance hall on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard. Since opening Castle Rock/UIM there in 1998, he has developed a variety of programs to fill the needs of the church’s growing membership and its expanding role in the community. But space had become a problem. The new location on Galvez Street has an old-fashioned white church with a cross atop of a small steeple, a brick school build-

Michael Faulk,

president of the Louisiana Association of School Superintendents, calls a new state law banning bullying in Louisiana schools an “administrative nightmare.” The law requires schools to train staff to handle bullying in and out of the classroom. Though other states have far more stringent laws, Faulk claims the Louisiana law creates too much paperwork and possibly will require new staff. Students deserve basic-level school protection, not administrative excuses.

Should the Louisiana Legislature call a special emergency session to address the statewide cuts in the state’s education and health systems?

UIM and Castle Rock Community Church purchased St. Monica’s in May 2011, renovated the property and has moved all its programs. Gerhardt says the new location has two great benefits: It’s in the heart of Central City, the community to which he has devoted his life’s work, and it has lots of space for programs including Tuesday and Thursday night youth Bible studies, Friday and Saturday night youth recreation programs, afterschool tutoring and more. “We want to create neighborhoods where kids can ride their bikes,” Gerhardt says.

Celebrating 140 Years

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > october 23 > 2012

Gerhardt’s journey to New Orleans began in 1989, when the Wisconsin native (who plays a pretty mean alto saxophone), was a youth minister in Minnesota and accompanied a group of students on a mission trip to Chicago. “It was the first time I’d ever seen a holistic ministry at work,” he says. “The church bought real estate. They started a school, had a medical clinic. They even had a legal clinic.” A trip to New Orleans with a youth group the next year changed his life. Gerhardt, his wife and the youngsters worked in the heart of Central City for one week. “We went back to Minnesota, and I told my wife, ‘We don’t even need to be thinking about coming to New Orleans,’’’ Gerhardt recalls. The more they tried to talk themselves out of it, however, the more obvious it became that they were Louisiana-bound. They moved south in 1992 to work with UIM, established by another member of Gerhardt’s denomination, and Gerhardt focused on the community around the Melpomene housing project. One of his first activities was taking six boys to Branson, Mo., to a sports camp for inner-city youth. The experience had such an effect on the boys that they started a Bible study group. “Actually it was a Bible study/football group,” Gerhardt says. “We had Bible study one day and we’d play touch football another day.” The group would play football anywhere it could find a lighted parking lot. “We were kicked off quite a few Schwegmann’s parking lots,” he says. A high school ministry was formed, a junior high ministry was added, and the UIM program continued to grow. Gerhardt purchased a former bank on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in 1995 and founded Castle Rock Community Church. He immersed himself in the community, forming relationships with neighbors and other churches, like the Central City Pastors Partnership. And he continues working with young people, trying to change the culture of crime and violence in the neighborhood. From the initial six boys, the ministry has grown to more than 150 active members from diverse backgrounds. “We have people with Ph.D.s and people trying to get their GED,” Gerhardt says. His reception in the community was rocky at times, but Gerhardt always acted with an eye toward improving the neighborhood and making it safe for families who live there. “I don’t go looking for trouble, but certain things we couldn’t and shouldn’t ignore,” Gerhardt says. He recounts talking with a local gang leader and drug dealer who had encountered a group of adults rehabbing a house in Central City. “I just said to him, “Look, man, you can’t be doing that. It’s not right, and we’re trying to do something different here, so would you mind not selling drugs around here? He said, ‘That’s how I roll.’ I said, ‘Well, this is how we roll. This will be a neighborhood where kids can ride their bikes, and this needs to be a safe corner.” A year later, Gerhardt met the new leader of the gang. “Some kids were hiding drugs in a building right next to one we were cleaning,” he says. “I

asked them to take it somewhere else.” word got back to the gang leader, who approached Gerhardt. “i told him that he needed to take it someplace else,” the pastor says. The situation was diffused when Gerhardt and the young man realized they both liked the Fox network show 24. such tense situations are not uncommon in the neighborhood. “it’s not always easy, but you have to show some

kind of moral presence,” the pastor says. “it emboldens people who want to stand up against it.” Gerhardt knows about creating a presence. On weekdays he sometimes can be spotted driving through the neighborhood around his new church, knocking on doors and waking up kids for school. it might seem over the top, but Gerhardt says he sees positive results.

He also recognizes the irony of moving his church to a building named in honor of the patron saint of mothers of wayward sons. st. Monica followed her son augustine for 17 years, traveling halfway across the Roman empire imploring him to repent of his immoral ways. Gerhardt says he has comforted his share of mothers whose sons wouldn’t listen, and he’s buried more than his share of young men

who lost their lives to violence, but he also has helped other kids avoid the dangers of the streets. “some of the same kids i tussled with 10, 15 years ago have changed their lives,” he says. “a couple of them are youth ministers who grew up in the ministry.” — Phillip Manuel is a freelance writer and New Orleans native.

scuttlebutt Quotes of the week

“i’m sure his advisers told him [President Barack Obama] drink all the Red Bull and caffeine you can. The problem is not his oratorical skills. The problem is his record. You can combine the speaking skills of Presidents (Ronald) Reagan, (Abraham) Lincoln and Winston Churchill … and you still couldn’t defend his record.” — Gov. Bobby Jindal in the “spin room” backstage at the Oct. 16 presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., acting as a surrogate for GOP candidate Mitt Romney.

“Over five years as Louisiana’s chief executive, (Bobby) Jindal’s given campaign speeches, traveled to fundraisers and dropped into Republican events in 39 states and washington, D.C., hitting key presidential race states like iowa multiple times. More than one-third of the 160 different out-of-state trips he’s taken in office have happened since January. … Polls have shown concern from some voters about the frequency of the trips, and even a few Republican lawmakers have quietly questioned Jindal’s commitment to state business when he seems to be eyeing a bigger political prize.” — The Associated Press’ Melinda Deslatte, in an Oct. 14 analysis of Jindal’s travels.

sewerage rate hikes? BGR says take politics out of s&WB opeRations The New Orleans sewerage and water Board (s&wB) forwarded a long-term rate hike plan to Mayor Mitch Landrieu last week. The plan, which was approved by s&wB’s executive committee earlier this month, would increase water rates by 10 percent each year through 2020 to help pay for billions in infrastructure repairs. Landrieu, who also serves as the board president, is expected to review the plan before the board takes a vote, which could happen as early as next month. The decision to advance the current plan comes in spite of criticism from Landrieu that it ignores a serious problem: governance. Over the summer, Landrieu asked the board to address governance issues in its report on the rate hike. Prior to last week’s board meeting, the Bureau of Governmental Research (BGR) sent a letter calling for delay of the full rate hike until the board — along with (the) city and the state — “fix the way [s&wB] is governed and the way it operates,” the letter reads. “Rather than providing a plan for governance reform, [the rate hike plan] calls for future meetings on the topic.” BGR recommends removing the mayor and City Council members from the board, as well as setting shorter terms and term limits. City Council President Stacy Head, a member of the s&wB, echoed this position at the meeting, saying she wants to minimize politics in decisions on the city’s infrastructure. “i’d like to see the governance changes before the rate increases,” other than those that would produce immediate, tangible benefits to customers or would be required to meet improvement deadlines set in a 1998 federal consent decree, Head said. “My suggestion is to take the council’s

direct input out, and have it be an appointment of the council, because i do think politics continues to play too strong a role,” she said, adding that she does not want to remove Landrieu from the board. — CHaRLes MaLDONaDO

the graphic designer did it tea paRty pampHlet eRRs on Boustany The race between U.s. Reps. Charles Boustany and Jeff Landry for the redrawn 3rd Congressional District seat got uglier last week when the Tea Party of Lafayette, which backs Landry, issued a pamphlet stating Boustany hadn’t been endorsed by the National Right to Life Committee (he had) and that he didn’t sign a pledge not to raise taxes (he did). what happened? since the Tea Party of Lafayette had co-endorsed Landry with the national nonprofit Freedomworks, Freedomworks printed the pamphlet, and Tea Party of Lafayette and Freedomworks spokeswoman Joyce Linde told KaTC-Tv, “The tax pledge was not in our original document, and so maybe we feel that the graphic designer at Freedomworks, or somewhere, inserted that.” The website LaFactCheck.com, which supports Boustany, headlined the incident “Lies, Damn Lies and Landry Lies,” reprinting the Right to Life endorsement and concluding, acidly, “The very first line of the letter reads: ‘National Right to Life is pleased to endorse you for reelection to the U.s. House of Representatives.’ we realize this language is a tad bit ambiguous, but even someone with elementary comprehension of the english language can tell this is in fact an endorsement.” — KeviN aLLMaN

Parking wars zoninG RestRictions peeve DevelopeR The New Orleans City Council has unanimously approved a controversial plan for a surface parking lot in the 100 block of south Rampart street in the Central Business District. Local preservationists balked at turning the site into a parking lot. Now an empty lot, the site was formerly home to several historic buildings, including Morris Music, which is closely associated with Louis armstrong. a 2000 plan to build a parking structure on the site never materialized. The City Planning Commission’s staff report noted that a surface lot, rather than a building or parking structure, would be inconsistent with high-density objectives outlined in the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance. District B Councilwoman Diane Bajoie brokered a compromise, limiting a conditional use permit to three years, rather than the five years that developer Muskeget LLC had sought. after that, Muskeget must either build a permanent structure or reapply for an extension of the permit. in addition, within nine months, the company is required to present a proposal to commemorate the history of the site. “it’s a conditional use, and the developer doesn’t like the conditions,” Bajoie said. “it’s a conditional use for a limited period of time.” — CHaRLes MaLDONaDO

tobacco stings bring fines sell ciGs to minoRs: $200 a pop The Louisiana Office of alcohol and Tobacco Control (aTC) was conducting sting operations as early as May 2012 using underage “operatives” to purchase tobacco products from bars (the operative asks bar staff where the cigarette machines are, purchases cigarettes and leaves the bar). The stings are part of a three-year, federally funded program. in august, Dos Jefes Uptown Cigar Bar and wit’s inn landed on the city’s alcoholic Beverage Control Board (aBC) docket for allegedly allowing underage operatives inside to purchase cigarettes. in september, Cooter Brown’s and snake and Jake’s Christmas Club Lounge each agreed to pay $200 to settle similar charges. at the Oct. 16 aBC meeting, a host of popular bars including aunt Tiki’s, Mango Mango, Lost Love Lounge and siberia each agreed to pay $200 for charges including allowing minors into the bar, selling tobacco products to minors, and “maintaining or creating a public nuisance.” at the august aBC meeting, aBC vice-chair Nyka Scott said, “i’m not sure this level of conduct amounts to nuisance.” City attorney Dan McNamara said that because a minor entered the bar before his iD was checked, it was in “clear violation of the law.” in July, Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced a partnership between the aTC, the city and NOPD to “investigate nuisance bars that serve as breeding grounds for violence and crime,” Landrieu said in a press release. “Reducing violent crime and murder and making New Orleans safe has been and will continue to be the most important issue facing this city and its future, and this partnership with the aTC will help us to do this.” The effort merged with Landrieu’s “Nola For Life” anticrime campaign. — aLex wOODwaRD

School Board Endorsements District 4: Lourdes Moran — Moran, a senior member of the board in terms of longevity, has been OPSB president for one year and vice-president for five. She led the effort to put the board’s financial house in order after Katrina and helped raise its bond rating by testifying before Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s. She rejects a one-size-fits-all approach to returning Orleans schools back to local control from the RSD. While she admires the autonomy of charter programs, she wants to see more transparency in charter governance. We agree with that approach. It should be noted Moran’s opponent, Leslie Ellison, testified for state Sen. A.G. Crowe’s, R-Slidell, controversial bill to allow discrimination at charter schools based on sexual orientation. The bill was widely panned as gay bashing. District 6: Woody Koppel — A fouryear incumbent and former public school

School board elections are always important, but this year’s contests are especially critical. teacher, Koppel points out that under the “new” board, local public schools are seeing the state’s best high school “cohort” graduation rate in the state (93 percent among classmates who started together in ninth grade). He credits much of the system’s academic improvement to charter successes but correctly notes that the multi-tiered local charter system can be unnecessarily confusing to parents, particularly when it comes to who’s in charge of individual charter schools. He has a thorough grasp of education policy issues and consistently brings a levelheaded approach to decision-making. District 7: Thomas Robichaux — Another four-year incumbent, Robichaux has been a positive and energetic force on the board. He currently serves as the board’s president. While he would like to see more schools return from the RSD to local control, he says that returning all schools at once, right away, would be unwise. He favors moving RSD schools back over time so the board can prepare to oversee them properly. “The system is not yet completely fixed, but it’s much improved and on the right track,” he says. We agree, and we support his re-election.

oters in New Orleans will fill six of seven Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) seats on Nov. 6. One incumbent, District 5 board member Seth Bloom, has been re-elected without opposition. The six other incumbents are seeking re-election. School board elections are always important, but this year’s contests are especially critical. Board members are expected to hire a new superintendent soon, and the next board must continue the ongoing discussion of how best to return once-failing schools from the purview of the Recovery School District (RSD) to local control. Here are our recommendations. District 1: Heidi Lovett Daniels — Daniels was a standout on the board during her one term of service, from 2005 to 2009, and she was elected the board’s vice president during that time. A veteran teacher (she currently teaches math at Southern University), Daniels has an excellent grasp of the issues that confront the system: a chasm between charter proponents who like the improved student test scores and those who think Orleans teachers and parents have been lost in the charter shuffle; concerns that charter schools fail to serve special-needs students; and the need to hire a new superintendent who has a record of academic achievement in an urban system. Daniels has a knack for education policy and an ability to work with the state Department of Education to improve the communication between the two often-competing entities. The school board needs Heidi Daniels. District 2: Cynthia Cade — Cade has served eight years on the board and was part of the team that helped turn around the system’s finances after Hurricane Katrina. An educator by profession, she applauds the increased levels of community involvement and on-site autonomy at many charter schools, but she also gives credence to widespread charges of a lack of transparency in the governance of some charters. She pledges to seek a new superintendent who understands the unique educational culture in New Orleans post-Katrina. District 3: Sarah Newell Usdin — A dynamic leader in the charter schools, accountability, and Teach For America movements even before Katrina, Usdin founded the New Schools for New Orleans organization that helped more communities get charter schools in their neighborhoods after the storm. Now she wants to bring her impressive energy and two decades of educational experience to the local school board to work for continued reforms from the inside. She knows education policy thoroughly, and her only focus would be public education — not politics. We think she would be an excellent addition to the school board.

High-Stakes council Races lections for New orleans City Council always put a lot on the line, despite the “strong mayor” form of government embedded in the City Charter. Mitch Landrieu knows this, which is why he continues to stake out positions in council races. In the past year or so, the mayor has locked horns with at-large Councilwoman stacy Head on a variety of issues, but in the end their squabbles all come down to the same thing: control. Both Landrieu and Head like to have their way, and both are skilled at maneuvering to get it. on many big issues, they play well together; when they don’t, they really don’t. For a while, their spats were low-key and behind the scenes, but in recent months the hostilities between them have escalated. on good days, they are cool toward one another. on bad days, they seem to harbor mutual disdain. As mayor, Landrieu has the upper hand when dealing with a recalcitrant councilmember. The council controls the purse strings, but as even Ray Nagin figured out,

the mayor can opt not to spend. The mayor also controls all departments and heavily influences most “independent” boards and commissions. You want a broken street light fixed or a road paved? Call your councilmember, who in turn will call a department head, who reports directly to the mayor. The lines of authority, and power, are clear and unequivocal. As an opponent, Head is no slouch. she works as hard as anyone at her job, including the politicking. Which brings us to the two special council elections on the Nov. 6 ballot. Voters will choose new council members to fill the unexpired terms of Jon Johnson in District E and Head in District B. Landrieu is playing heavily in both races. so far, Head has endorsed only in District E. In District E, Landrieu is backing attorney James Gray, as is a host of other elected officials. Head is supporting state Rep. Austin Badon, who finished third in the race for Head’s current at-large seat. In the runoff, Badon backed Head and helped

There’s a measure of irony in Head’s reluctance to back a successor in her own political backyard. her eke out a razor-thin victory over former District E Councilwoman Cynthia WillardLewis. (In that race, Landrieu backed Willard-Lewis, a longtime ally.) In District B, Landrieu again leads a bevy of political heavyweights in backing Dana Kaplan. so far, Head remains neutral. There’s a measure of irony in Head’s reluctance to back a successor in her own political backyard. on one hand, she could

influence that race a great deal in light of the fact that she served as District B’s council representative for six years. on the other hand, she has friends and supporters in the camps of all three major candidates. If she picks one, she risks making more enemies than friends. You could say the same for Landrieu, but he has an advantage: A mayor can find a lot more ways to kiss and make up than can a councilmember. The stakes are high for Landrieu and Head. The mayor would like to have four council votes, if not five, that he can count on. Head at times has been able to cobble together three or four votes of her own, depending on the issue. The election falls squarely in the middle of budget season, a time when council coalitions can come together and fall apart literally overnight. If either or both council races are resolved in two weeks, the council’s political fault lines — and the battle lines between Landrieu and Head — could be redrawn in short order.

HEY BLAKE,

While playing cards with a group of friends the other day, the topic of women flashing their breasts for beads in the French Quarter came up. A dispute arose as to when this practice started. My friend Mac says it started during the 1979 Mardi Gras, when New Orleans police officers were on strike. Ed thinks it was not until the late 1980s or early 1990s. I thought it was no later than Mardi Gras 1985. Can you tell us who is correct? Leo DEAR LEO, Of course it’s impossible to say exactly who was the first daring woman to try

this technique to get Mardi Gras beads. The link between beads and breasts was established no earlier than the mid-1970s, but it took hold and spread rapidly after that. The earliest published evidence found is a photo in the Feb. 1, 1978, issue of Figaro newspaper, a New Orleans weekly published from 1972 to 1981. The photo shows a woman on a Bourbon Street balcony exposing her breasts. But since Mardi Gras 1978 came after the date of publication, the picture probably was taken in 1977 or earlier.

David Serrone DEAR DAVID, I know that Franklin Field, also called Franklin Stadium, was located at 3001 Franklin Ave. It was a popular place for ball playing from about 1939 to 1950. During the 1940s, Jax Beer sponsored a girls’ softball team called the Jax Girls. Usually they played other all-girls teams, but in 1942 there were transportation difficulties and visiting girls teams were few, so the Jax Girls played the Military Police Department of Camp Harahan. During that season, they scheduled at least 20 games at various service camps in and around New Orleans.

DEAR MARY, Yes, there was. Its official name was the Louisiana Retreat Asylum for the Insane. In 1853, the Sisters of Charity purchased a piece of property located in the Hurstville subdivision on the corner of Nashville Avenue and Magazine Street. The sisters, who were in charge of the various hospitals and charities in New Orleans, bought the property to build a house for their own use. It was meant to be a retreat where sisters who were ill could go to recuperate and regain their strength so they could return to their duties. A few years later, the sisters opened a school for poor girls at the same location. Eventually that school moved to Napoleon Avenue. Then the sisters converted the facility into a mental institution with both charity and paying patients. The facility grew, and in 1876 it moved to 1038 Henry Clay Ave. Around 1930, the institution became the De Paul Sanatorium and then De Paul Hospital. LSU Behavioral Sciences now occupies part of the De Paul campus, and Children’s Hospital uses the other part.

I have no problem with people criticizing a team’s or a player’s performance on the field, and I don’t think players do either. But fans and the media also should remember that those players are human beings who have spouses, children, parents, friends and loved ones. Venomous and hateful comments do hurt. Everyone who follows the NFL needs to remember that football is a sport and each contest is just a game, not a life or death match. The next time you make comments on social media, remember that asking that a player be traded, benched or cut is a fair request, but wishing them ill, especially physical harm — that’s not being a fan.

ports fans add a lot to the game day experience. But the popularity of social media has created a dirtier side to fandom. Hidden behind words on a screen, so-called fans have used Twitter, Facebook, online comments sections and message boards to express opinions ranging from distasteful to hurtful. Following the LSU Tigers’ 14-6 loss to the Florida Gators Oct. 6, fans took to the airwaves declaring the end of the Tigers football program, name-calling players and coaches and talking about the loss as if the apocalypse had taken place. Tigers receiver Jarvis Landry was one of the targets on Twitter, and after reading the conversations he reached a boiling point. “If you have nothing positive to say don’t mention me,” he tweeted. “It’s us out there at practice every day etc. What gives you the right to have a voice?” The next day, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel was hit hard and suffered a concussion. A majority of the home fans — the home fans! — cheered while Cassel remained on his back, diagnosis unknown, for several minutes. Another instance of fandom gone wrong followed an Oct. 15 report on ProFootballTalk.com that former Saints linebacker Scott Fujita, now with the Cleveland Browns, is battling a neck injury that could threaten his career. Fujita was a fan favorite during his four years in New Orleans and helped the city win its first Super Bowl championship. I covered him during his time with the Saints and he was always professional, during both the best and worst of times. When I got to the end of the story and saw comments football fans had posted, I was disgusted. “Instant karma baby. Hate brings bad things,” one commenter posted. “I’d like to say I’m sorry to hear that … but … I’d be lying,” another read. “Bounty hit?” A respondent on one message board went so far as to say he hopes Fujita’s injury means he will have trouble picking up his children to hold them. I guess these so-called fans can’t read, because in the NFL’s latest reaffirmations of the bounty penalties, NFL Commis-

FATALE

Garments run the gamut from Patricia Steere sweet sundresses advocates to figure-hugging, dressing to the nines every jewel-tone day, because dresses Marilyn “what is your Monroe would life if not one covet. Elbowgrand special length gloves occasion?” are reminiscent of those worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Sizes range from XS to 2X, and dresses cost less than $200, providing choices for many different body types and budgets. Although the dresses are inspired by the past, they aren’t meant to be worn as costumes. Steer suggests mixing things up, combining pieces from different eras to create a unique, personal outfit. “In your daily life, adding a touch of vintage is a cool thing to do, as opposed to going to a major department store and buying what everyone is wearing,” she says. Steere encourages women to fall in love with dressing up in preparation for wherever the day might take them. “You find yourself [wearing yoga wear every day], and you look at your closet full of clothes and you’re like, ‘Oh, I only wear those for special occasions,’” she says. “Well, what is your life if not one grand special occasion?”

oets often liken women to flowers, but to Patricia Steere, the essence of feminine beauty is strong, unpredictable and even deadly. That vision is reflected in the name of her boutique, A Girl Is A Gun (6010 Magazine St., 504-891-4475; www.agirlisagun.com). Steere’s love for a time when women truly dressed up, donning hats and gloves on a daily basis, inspired her to open her shop last year. “You look in the streets sometimes, and you see people looking like they don’t care,” Steere says. “My inspiration is to spread the care.” Her edgy-yet-glamorous aesthetic is evident in her own ensembles as well as the shop’s furnishings: Andy Warhol prints, a TV playing film noir movies and classic books like Vladimir Nabokov’s Lolita. The shop offers vintage-inspired garments tinged with old Hollywood glamour. There are handbags, costume jewelry and screen-printed T-shirts and hair accessories the shop owner makes herself. Steere thinks of dresses as weapons and accessories as ammunition. She considers her pieces to be tools that help women get ready to face their day. “Every woman has had that experience of getting dressed to go out,” Steere says. “You’re getting dressed, and it’s really like the old days when men would go into battle and put on their armor — you’re putting on lipstick or nail polish or these items, and it’s like putting on your weaponry.”

Dunbar’s to reopen in Gentilly

Long before Freret Street got its groove back and emerged as a restaurant row, the Creole soul restaurant Dunbar’s Creole Cooking was the commercial strip’s go-to destination for fried chicken, meaty red beans, an exemplary Creole gumbo and perhaps the sweetest of all sweet teas. Its building was badly damaged during Hurricane Katrina and Dunbar’s found a new home inside the student center of Loyola University’s law school, where it operated like a food court eatery when classes were in session. Dunbar’s did not reopen there with the current fall semester, however, and owner Celestine Dunbar has a new plan. PAGE 24

masa are bound in banana leaves, foil and twine and stay warm for hours. Norma’s is a colorful, engaging place with pinatas strung from the ceiling, bins of cactus and plantain and a tidy dining area in the corner. For those learning to navigate a Latin deli, manager Jose Castillo is ready with advice. The ceviche, he assures, is perfect beer-drinking food, and the large soups are traditional hangover cures. On weekends, these soups include mondongo, which has a broth so unquestionably rejuvenating that even people who aren’t into tripe, its star ingredient, may want to consider it on certain mornings. On more composed mornings, diners might turn their attention to bakery cases filled with a whole golden constellation of the soft, chewy Mexican pastry called pan dulce, long, crullerlike Cuban churros and soft slabs of flan. There are meat pies with beef or pulled chicken and bits of dried fruit inside puff pastry. Others, filled with guava and cream cheese, fit somewhere between lunch food and dessert treat and make good snacks for a buck and change each. Peer beyond the breadboxes and you’ll likely see Norma’s other claim to fame — sheet cakes decorated with great extravagance by women who apply icing like comic book artists use ink. After seeing these cakes at a kid’s birthday party, I can advise that a bounce house be readily accessible to absorb the potent sugar highs they produce.

Maremma, the southwestern-most appellation in Tuscany’s vast wine region, lies along the coast where the Ligurian Sea meets the Tyrrhenian Sea. Situated in a landscape of rugged, rolling hills, olive tree groves, sandy beaches and rocky coastline, the Marsiliano family estate produces this “mini” super Tuscan. Grapes for this blend of 60 percent cabernet sauvignon and 40 percent merlot were sourced from vineyards in Manciano in the Grosseto province. The wine was fermented and macerated over a 14-day period in temperaturecontrolled, open stainless steel tanks, and then aged 12 months in small, second-use French oak barrels. It is full-bodied and offers aromas of red and dark berries, anise, pepper and subtle oak. On the palate, taste rustic, earthy flavors of currants, plum, sour cherry, leathery and toasty notes and smooth tannins. Decant 30 to 40 minutes before serving. Drink it with roast game, herb-crusted lamb, veal, pork, pasta with meat sauces and pizza. Buy it at: Elio’s Wine Warehouse, Swirl Wine Market and Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket. Drink it at: Assunta’s Italian Restaurant, Ceasar’s and The Chimes Covington.

A deli and bakery offers a wide range of Latin specialties. t trip to a Jewish deli means Reuben and Rachel sandwiches and maybe a cup of soup. At an Italian deli, it’s wheels of cheese, a dozen types of cured pork and, in New Orleans, a muffuletta. But what about a visit to a Latin American deli? As the new Norma’s Sweets Bakery in Mid-City shows, it can mean huge cartons of carne asada and tortillas cooked on the griddle as you watch or a bracingly tart ceviche of shrimp, drum and scallops stored in iced tubs by the cash register. It could mean chimitacos, which are cigar-shaped crunch fests of chicken-stuffed tortillas piled with vinegary curtido slaw. Or it could mean possibly the best Cuban sandwich in town, with ham and crumbling tender roast pork encased in buttercrisped bread that was baked in house. This Norma’s is an offshoot of a bakery and grocery of the same name in Kenner. Shoppers can get groceries, but the Mid-City edition also has a deli with a changing array of hot plates spanning many different Latin traditions. You’ll find stewed chicken and ribs coated with a dark mixture of spices and grill char, all with meat sliding off the bone into a rust-colored liquid to ladle over yellow rice. One day there might be vigoron, a Nicaraguan dish of boiled yuca and chicharones, on another day there’s roasted corn sprinkled with crema and white cheese, and there are always a few different tamales.

    A vodka from the newly formed New  Orleans distillery Atelier Vie (www.ateliervie.com) is making its way into stores  and bars, and it really packs a wallop. It’s  called Buck 25, a reference to its 125  proof (or 62.5 percent alcohol), much  stronger than more common 80 proof  Absolut or Stoli products.      Buck 25’s distiller says this highproof vodka wasn’t designed simply  to make stronger drinks, but rather to  provide a “secret weapon” for craft  cocktail enthusiasts.       “The appeal is you only need a smaller  pour,” says distillery founder Jed Haas.  “You can add more flavor and more ingredients to the glass and have the same  alcohol content.”     Haas and his partners produce  Buck 25 at ArtEgg Studios, a reclaimed industrial space in Mid-City.  The vodka is marketed as “professional infusion grade,” and Haas says  this means it’s aimed at bartenders  and others who want to make their own  flavor-infused vodkas.     “The higher alcohol content means the  flavor gets extracted a lot faster and is  more intense,” he says.      One early adopter of Buck 25 has  already come up with a highly personalized infusion. Pauline Patterson,  proprietor of Finn McCool’s Irish Pub  (3701 Banks St., 504-486-9080; www. finnmccools.com), infused a bottle of  Buck 25 with Juicy Fruit gum. New Orleans Saints fans may recall that a ready  stock of Juicy Fruit has been a game day  superstition for head coach Sean Payton. The suspended coach scheduled  an event benefiting his Payton’s Play It Forward Foundation during the Oct.  21 Saints versus Buccaneers game at

ExECuTIVE CHEF, YE OLDE COLLEGE INN Ye Olde College Inn (3000 S. Carrollton Ave., 504-866-3683; www.collegeinn1933.com) was founded in 1933. Over the generations, it evolved into a  beloved, if increasingly dowdy, neighborhood standby. The Blancher family, proprietors of the bowling alley/music venue Rock ’N’ Bowl, bought the  restaurant in 2003. Following Hurricane Katrina, they reopened it in an adjacent  building and began a radical modernization of the menu. This was well underway when Brad McGehee was brought on as executive chef in 2011, but since  then he has helped complete the College Inn’s transformation into a casual but  modern Creole bistro. The restaurant runs its own farm on an adjacent lot to  help supply the kitchen and it sources grass-fed beef from a ranch in Acadiana  operated by relatives of the Blancher family. McGehee also oversees the food  at Rock ’N’ Bowl.  : What impact does running your own farm next door have on your kitchen? McGehee: It means planning the menu isn’t just what I’m going to buy but what  I’m going to plant months in advance so we can have it on our menu. That forces  you to think not two steps ahead but 10 steps ahead, but it’s been very interesting. Having a farm like this really opens the door to a caliber of young, rising  chefs who are passionate about this and want to work here with us. That’s been  a blessing in the kitchen, and it’s not something I ever take for granted.    : Your menu changes often, but are there some dishes you can’t touch? M: There are still people who have been coming in here every week or a few  times a week for years, and because of that there are certain dishes we won’t  fiddle with. The veal dish, that’s a great dish, the onion rings, the burger. Those  aren’t going anywhere, even if we’ve made some quiet adjustments, especially  with the beef program.

what to know before you go

Handa Wanda Wanda Sykes brings her acerbic wit to the Mahalia Jackson Theater. By Kevin Allman

L

“Here’s the thing that really bugs me,” she says, referencing the first presidential debate. “i don’t know who showed up. Mitt romney — everything he says is the exact opposite of what he said on the campaign trail. i did a special for [cable channel] logo, and i had to study and read a lot, so i know what his position and his platform is. so he’s standing there, and i’m saying, ‘that’s not true.’ After the debate they say, ‘We’re gonna see what the factchecker says.’ to me, that’s where the system has fallen apart, right there. this is a debate and you’re talking to the American people, you’re running for office, everything coming out of your mouth should be fact. “Why are they getting away with being able to tell lies like that?” she adds. “i would like an airhorn to go off whenever someone lies. Or maybe they can do like they

Sykes is such a fan of the New Orleans Saints, she says, that she asked Habitat for Humanity to build the team a new stadium after Hurricane Katrina.

et’s get the important thing out of the way first: Wanda sykes is a big fan of the new Orleans saints. And the first time she came to new Orleans, it wasn’t as a comedian, but as a comedic correspondent for HBO’s Inside the NFL, a job for which she won three emmy Awards in the early 2000s. “My best friend is from louisiana. they [the saints] weren’t doing so hot back then,” sykes adds, laughing. “But i went to the super Bowl when it was in new Orleans — the rams against the Patriots — and that was my first time in new Orleans, and i fell in love with the city.” so who’s her favorite saint? “it’s gotta be Drew,” sykes says. “Drew Brees is just an incredible player — breaking Johnny unitas’ record. [Darren] sproles is just incredible. [Marques] colston. it’s just a solid team. “After Katrina i was doing a piece on them when they were playing at a college. i did a bit where i went to Habitat for Humanity and asked them to build them a new stadium,” she says, laughing again. “i met the players, Joe Horn, all of them, and i said, ‘You know what? this is gonna be my team.’ i’m all with the saints.” sykes began performing standup comedy in the late 1980s, eventually opening for chris rock and going on to work as a writer on The Chris Rock Show, for which she won her first emmy. she has been a regular on several tv shows since, most notably Wanda At Large, The New Adventures of Old Christine and Curb Your Enthusiasm, as well as appearing in movies (Monster-in-Law, Evan Almighty, Pootie Tang). sykes also briefly had a latenight talk show and has starred in several one-woman comedy specials. in 2003, comedy central named her the funniest woman on television. this week, sykes is bringing her standup act to the Mahalia Jackson theater, a return visit to the town where earlier this year she filmed her latest comedy, The Hot Flashes — the tale of middle-aged women reforming their old high school basketball team to raise money to save a mobile breast screening clinic. “i finally learned how to control myself,” sykes says of new Orleans. “i can enjoy the city, i can eat the food. now when i’m there, it’s not even about Bourbon street, i’m all over the city. such a beautiful place. the last time i was there i had my kids come stay with me for a little bit, and we went out to storyville [storyland]. there are beautiful parks; it’s just a great city.” What’s sykes’ opinion of this year’s never-ending presidential election?

do on Nickelodeon; they get slimed whenever they lie.” In 2009, Sykes created a ruckus when she emceed the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and insulted both Rush Limbaugh and former vice president Dick Cheney. (“Dick Cheney. He’s a scary man. He scares me to death. I tell my children that if there are two cars driving down our street — one has a stranger in it and one has Dick Cheney, get in the car with the stranger in it.”) She’ll be hosting a second political special on Logo the night before the presidential election. In recent years, she’s become an advocate for same-sex marriage and LGBT issues; four years ago, she married her wife Alex in California during the legal interregnum when same-sex marriage was legal there. Sykes also was known for her jokes about never wanting kids. Now she has twins. What changed? “My wife,” Sykes says. “I met her, fell in love, planned on being with her the rest of my life, and she was really big on kids. I said, ‘Well, let me think on it,’ then I thought, ‘Why wouldn’t I have a family with this woman?’” Last year, her family was shaken when Sykes went in for breastreduction surgery and routine testing found ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) in her breast tissue — also known as “stage-zero cancer.” Given her family history of breast cancer, Sykes decided to have a bilateral mastectomy. “I’m not going to let something just linger,” she says. “That would have meant you’ve got to go get checked every three months — why go through that? I’m not gonna gamble, and if I do, I’m taking what’s going to give me the best odds.” How’s her health now? “Great! The reconstruction surgery has been completed,” she says. “I’m 48, but now with the boobs of a 22-year-old.” All of this may be fodder for her show at the Mahalia Jackson Theater, and she’s looking forward to the visit. “I finally mastered New Orleans — well, let’s not say mastered. I finally have gotten it under control where I don’t think I’m gonna die on the way to the airport,” she says. “The first time [I visited], I really thought: Oh, my God, I’m gonna die just as soon as I get through security. Security might think I’m a dirty bomb or something. You know, when you get up with alcohol still just pouring out of you, and you’re still drunk — oh, it’s bad. It’s just bad.”

Joyce Manor

Why are the pop-punk kids all so 6:30 p.m. Tuesday exhausted? For a class of music pracThe Big Top gallery tically hardwired into the dumb rush of adolescence, rock’s junior varsity is littered 1638 Clio St. with unfun burnouts, disgruntled, dope-sick 569-2700 and tired of sex by age 20. Joyce Manor is just getting started, yet on its second record www.3rcp.com — April release Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired (Asian Man), all nine songs and 13 panting minutes of it — the Torrance, Calif., four-piece already sounds beaten by life. Not that it makes for bad listening. The band’s self-titled LP was one of 2011’s shortest, bittersweetest debuts, and it suffers nothing by shaving off six minutes and doubling down on the frowns. Melancholy is a slippery slope for punk rockers, but Of All Things is less a small downer of an album and more one huge hook, a nonagonal soul asylum in perpetual motion: “These Kind of Ice Skates” staking a 78-second foundation of tent-pole eighth notes and singer/guitarist Barry Johnson’s naked barks; “See How Tame I Can Be” and the micro-epic “Bride of Usher” (2:18) curing their young man’s blues with bubbling Smiths bass lines and fading laments written in invisible ink (“I don’t remember anyone I haven’t seen for years/ I don’t remember being anywhere but here”). The closer, “I’m Always Tired,” is a strummed, humming number that alludes to the band’s origins as an acoustic duo; it is born, lives and dies in less than a minute. Enjoy it while it doesn’t last. Hop Along, All People and I’m Fine open. Admission $5. — NoAH BoNAPArTE PAIS

FILM LIStINGS REVIEW

24 Hour Service Package Delivery October 19, 2012 An Open Letter to the Residents of the City of New Orleans: On April, 24, 2012, the New Orleans City Council passed 24 ordinances radically changing the way in which cab owners, drivers and lines have been doing business in this city for the last 70 years. While many of these reforms were necessary (for the safety of passengers and drivers) some of them are so detrimental and are being implemented in such a way that many of the men and women at United Cabs will be forced to leave the industry. The city has given the entire industry of 1,551 taxicabs only 94 days to comply with these regulations. Cities across the country who have gone through a similar process have given their industries a minimum of 3 years to come into compliance.

Searching For Sugar Man

Searching for Sugar Man (PG-13) Directed by Malik Bendjelloul Limited release

In addition to expediting compliance in an unreasonable time frame; the city has failed to consider the financial costs of these upgrades. For example, for those people whose vehicles will not meet the "model year" requirement, they will be required to spend an average of $26,000 on a vehicle and the equipment now required. Because of the short time frame implemented by the city, the industry has been unable to fairly negotiate with vendors for the upgrades. More importantly; however, is the city's attack on the property rights of cab owners. In order to operate a taxicab in the city of New Orleans, a person is required to possess a certificate of public necessity and convenience (CPNC). For decades, taxi owners, with the knowledge of the city, have bought, sold, transferred, traded and pledged their CPNCs. A person's CPNC is crucial to finance the required upgrades. For many men and women in the industry, their CPNC is the only asset taxicab owners have and are able to use as collateral to secure a loan. However, because of the city's assault on the property rights of CPNC owners, the industry has been refused the financing desperately needed in order to implement the city's changes. While a federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction requiring the city to treat a CPNC as property, as opposed to a privilege which can be revoked at any time, until the issue is permanently resolved, no taxicab owner will be able to secure a loan using their CPNC as collateral. United Cabs is made up of hard-working men and women who take pride in their service and are committed to excellence. Without adequate time or the ability to find financing, 55% of the United Cabs' fleet will be off the streets of New Orleans by the city's January 1, 2013 deadline. This amounts to 225 of the city's best drivers, with years of experience, that will be out of work and unable to serve you the public. Unfortunately, the City of New Orleans is very much aware of this and has offered no concession or support. Today, we are asking for your help. We ask that you please contact Mayor Landrieu and your city councilperson and ask that they extend the deadlines for compliance and end the assault against taxicab owner's property rights.

Myths and legends are almost as central to the history of rock ’n’ roll as the music itself: tragic deaths, mysterious disappearances and true stories so unlikely you couldn’t make them up if you tried. But the amazing tale of working-class Detroit singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez exists in a class by itself. In the early 1970s, Rodriguez made two remarkably strong albums that never registered on the cultural radar in America. Sometime after, a young woman brought a copy of his debut record Cold Fact to South Africa and played it for her friends. Unable to buy the record — and many others — at the height of apartheid, liberal dissenters spread Rodriguez’s anti-establishment songs via bootleg tapes. the music eventually helped inspire the creation of a rebellious South African music scene that played a role in ending apartheid’s racial segregation and white-minority rule. But it was too late for Rodriguez. Frustrated by his undeserved obscurity, he went on stage one night and lighted himself on fire in a flamboyant and uniquely public suicide. Or did he? As seen in the documentary Searching for Sugar Man, it’s clear that much of the legend of Rodriguez is true. Director Malik Bendjelloul has no trouble finding South African artists who were inspired by Rodriguez’s music. Casual fans from that country put Rodriguez in the same class as the Beatles and Bob Dylan and assumed the rest of the world did too. We even meet an employee of formerly state-run radio who shows us the station’s vinyl copy of Cold Fact, complete with individual tracks intentionally scratched with a knife to prevent airplay. And then there’s the music: Rodriguez’s powerful voice veers from Sam Cooke to James taylor to Matthew Sweet, and the way he constructs and dramatizes his catchy, politically aware folk-rock recalls Cat Stevens at the height of his popularity. Given those powerful touchstones, it’s easy to imagine the career that might have been. the fact that even diehard music obsessives hadn’t heard of Rodriguez before Searching for Sugar Man lends the story a mythic quality that suits the subject matter to a tee. First-time director Bendjelloul had made only short-form tV documentaries before Searching for Sugar Man, and he had serious trouble attracting the investors he needed to complete the film. He wound up not only finishing it on his own dime, but also crafting music, animation and other crucial elements himself despite a lack of experience. Even so, the finished product is surprisingly polished. Bendjelloul’s ace in the hole is Swedish cinematographer Camilla Skagerstrom, who balances the usual talking heads and archival footage with gorgeous and contrasting cityscapes of Detroit and Cape town. the film becomes a tale of two cities that seem to have existed in different eras, which is key to the Rodriguez story. It also gives the film a chance to delve into the larger but often neglected tale of white resistance to apartheid in South Africa. Searching for Sugar Man stretches some facts surrounding the ultimately successful effort by two devoted fans to unravel the mystery of Rodriguez. But it’s all in the name of maximizing the story’s overall emotional impact, which is huge. What’s rock ’n’ roll without a bit of fantasy? Perish the thought. — KEN KORMAN

United Cabs is currently the largest taxicab line in New Orleans. Forming in the late 1930s as a co-op of taxicab drivers, United Cabs simply wanted to provide excellent service to the residents of the City of New Orleans. The men and women of United Cabs take pride in "working the radio" and interacting with the residents of New Orleans. We were the first taxicab line running and serving the community after Hurricane Katrina because of its 24 hour radio dispatch service. The men and women of United Cabs are a part of this City and have chosen to focus on the needs of its residents.

Between You and the Mountains: Sculpture and Paintings by Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels Wednesday through Saturday Parse Gallery 134 Carondelet St. www.sites.google. com/site/parsegallery

“As above, so below.” So said medieval European alchemists and astrologers. The idea that the lives of ordinary people reflect broader universal patterns harks back to the earliest beliefs of Hindus, Buddhists and Hebrews, among others, for whom the triangle was an important symbol. Triangles also play an important part in Serra Fels’ “blueprint” paintings and wood sculptures at Parse. Echoes of the Hindu Shri Yantra, the sacred mandala for the origins of time and space, as well as the geometric Hebrew kabbalah, appear everywhere in her works, which Fels says reflect all of the people whose personal and social histories, as well as DNA, go into the making of a single individual. Painted with a thin pigment wash on antique French meteorological tables, they suggest mysterious diagrams, perhaps of the arcane secrets of the soul, or maybe mystical alchemical algorithms of how many angels can fit on an atom of DNA. While visually intriguing, their effectiveness reflects the way they resonate with an aura of concealed yet extensive esoteric knowledge. Similar triangulation appears in Fels’ hutlike sculptural installations (pictured), and if they look familiar it may help to know she was one of the artists who created the Music Box installation of sonic shanties in Bywater earlier this year. These structures, which mirror the forms of rooftops or mountain ranges, are more precise and convey, on a smaller scale, that sense of mystery we associate with ancient obelisks and Egyptian pyramids. Constructed of antique wooden slats in receding triangular patterns with triangular doorways, they are imposing yet airy. Like the paintings, they suggest a sense of intimate personal space mingled with the impersonal mathematical geometry of the infinite, reminding us that according to Albert Einstein — as well as the ancient Hindu and Buddhist sages — time and space, like energy and matter, are one and the same. For Fels, dealing with the intimate, as well as the infinite, is all a matter of perspective. — D. ERIC BOOKHARDT page 49

“It’s easy to beat up on BP,” Fondakowski says. “That voice is in there, but individual characters speak for many different aspects of life in Louisiana.” The piece also examines how history gets written and how the mass media play a role by swooping in and then quickly moving on to other events. “The media coverage ended after the well was capped,” Fondakowski says. The show features 20 of the people they interviewed, many portrayed by the main actress and narrator Kelli Simpkins. The subjects also are represented by Wortel’s portraits, which will be revealed at the show. Many of those subjects will attend performances this weekend and see how they are depicted. “This is the first time that some of these people will see that we’re not reporters,” Wortel says.

eigh Fondakowski developed her own approach to making documentary-like theater about real life tragedies. She was the main writer behind The Laramie Project, a play about the 1998 gay-bashing death of Matthew Shepard and how the community of Laramie, Wyo., saw the murder and the attention it focused on them. She’s also worked on a project interviewing the survivors of the 1978 mass suicide at Jonestown, Guyana. She had taken a break from documentary-based projects when the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on April 20, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico, causing the largest environmental disaster in United States history. Later, as she cotaught a course at Wesleyan University about art and science, the BP oil disaster became the class’ main subject, and she visited the Gulf Coast. “I saw dolphins being autopsied,” Fondakowski says. She decided to start a project on the disaster, and a nearly complete version of Spill runs this weekend at NOCCA, where she and portrait artist Reeva Wortel have been working with students while finishing the multimedia production. They will present the play in Lockport, La., in early November and expect the final version to be completed for a late November production at LSU. The two have spent much of the past two years interviewing people in south Louisiana affected by the disaster, including fishermen, cleanup workers, family members of men who died on the rig, scientists, Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser and others. “I came to tell the story about what happened on the rig and what happened with the spill,” Fondakowski says. “I got a whole education on culture and how deeply tied people are to the land, and how deeply tied they are to (the oil) industry.” The play’s first half focuses on the explosion on the rig. “It’s like a disaster movie,” Fondakoski says. “It’s highly charged.” The second act expands to look at how the people of south Louisiana and the environment were affected by the disaster and how they have responded. The timeline goes up to the second anniversary of the explosion and includes the trial of the BP engineer who deleted hundreds of text messages about the event.

The Clifton Monroe Chronicles: The Case of the Murderous Mister

Clifton Monroe, ace reporter, was at it again in the second chapter in a series written by Ren French and Thomas Adkins, which ran at Shadowbox Theatre. The audience is whisked back to a local radio studio in the 1940s. Noir is a genre usually associated with film or literature, but it also seeped into radio, in programs like The Shadow. “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?” Add touches of nostalgia and silliness and you’ve got the Clifton Monroe Chronicles. The second chapter, The Case of the Murderous Mister, featured a larger cast than the first and involved more complications. At times it was hard to follow, but a great deal of fun was had by all, including the players. Clifton (Richard Mayer) seemed more like a private investigator than a journalist, offering a Humphrey Bogart-style mix of machismo and wisecracks. The players were lined up behind music stands most of the time, there was considerable doubling of parts and the actors handled some sound effects, like a cymbal crash and high-heel footsteps. Most of the effects, however, were provided by announcer Dane Rhodes. Clifton, his sidekick Mathilda Parker (Leslie Boles) and her young brother Chip (Ashton Akridge) are investigating a spree of prostitute murders. Clifton decides to solve the mystery and break the story. He enters a labyrinth of vice at the Boom Boom Room strip club. The head vamp, Veronica Crutchfield (Kathryn Talbot), tries to seduce Clifton. She is in the skin trade on two levels; she also runs a brothel on the docks. Clifton and his gang go to the brothel and are captured and tied up, and Crutchfield threatens to kill them. In a sub-subplot, Mama Pearl (Laurie Kaufman) spins a tale of living in a tent city beneath the Huey P. Long Bridge. Family jealousies lead to murder and revealed identities. Under Harold Gervais’ direction, the cast was engaging and won over the audience in spite of the story’s bizarre twists. — DALT WONK

JOB GURU

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “I just interviewed for a great job on Monday and I have another interview next week. What should I do as far as thanking the interviewer?” — Gail A., New Orleans, LA

Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > october 23 > 2012

Dear Gail, First of all, congratulations on landing those interviews! In today’s competitive job search environment, simply getting an interview can be a challenge in itself. Your question is about how to thank the interviewer(s). Of course, at the conclusion of the interview you will want to verbally thank them, shake their hands firmly, and politely express that you are very enthusiastic about the opportunity. Many experts recommend sending a follow-up thank you letter, as opposed to a quick email. The idea is that an email shows very little effort, whereas Grant Cooper a letter shows initiative.

EOE, M/F/V/D

RESTAURANT/HOTEL/BAR

However, as a certified résumé writer and career coach with over 18 years helping clients realize their job search goals, I have found that a lengthy, formal thank you letter can, at times, be seen as a bit of overkill. I have developed a truly effective two-part approach that has worked effectively for my clients. First, shoot off a quick email thanking the interviewer(s) for their time, professionalism, and interest in your candidacy for the position. Of course, always remind them that you are eager to compete for the position, enjoyed learning about the company, and would be happy, of course, to provide any additional information or references they may need. A client of ours applied for a six-figure position as Southeast Louisiana Territory Manager for a hightech medical firm based out of Dallas. He followed our two-part post-interview process of sending out a quick email to the interviewers as well as dropping a Thank You card in the mail. Although he was not initially selected, the winning candidate ended up turning down the position because of the amount of travel required. When he was called in three weeks later and offered the job, the regional manager told him that, based on experience, he was actually rated behind several other candidates, but that his thoughtful card and follow-up had pushed him to the top of the list. He was apparently the only candidate that sent a thank you card after the interview to express his appreciation and continued interest.

The second step is, as quickly as possible, and preferably the same day, drop a thoughtful, conservative-looking thank you card in the mail. You can buy a pack of these at a local drug store. You can put stamps on the envelopes ahead of time so that it is a snap to simply address one and drop it in the mail immediately after your interview. When business managers receive their daily mail at work, it is often filled with official-looking documents, invoices, and other dull items, but very rarely do they encounter attractively handwritten cards and notes. In study after study, it is shown that this type of mail will be opened first. Here are a couple of suggestions for the handwritten thank you card you will send after each interview: 1. Select an attractive, conservative “Thank You” note card that is blank on the inside. Be sure to hand ad dress the card neatly. If your handwriting is horrible, a friend or family member with good penmanship can handle that for you. 2. Very briefly, thank the interviewer again for their professionalism and for extending the interview. Restate that you are eager to compete for the position and look forward to the possibility of joining the team. 3. Then comes a truly important part, the “P.S.” – At the bottom, insert a P.S. that is personal. During your interview, you should find out some personal item or tidbit about the interviewer… For example, you may see a photo on their desk of their children and inquire about their family, or a diploma on the wall, or they may remark about flying in from another city to conduct the interview. In the P.S., you can perhaps remark, “P.S. - I hope your daughter’s piano recital went well!,” or “P.S. - I hope your flight back to Chicago well!,” or “P.S. - I hope your back is feeling better!” Again, study after study shows that this type of personal touch can make all of the difference in how you are perceived.
