As reporter Jyl Benson writes in, “Feast of Seven Fishes,” the celebration is “part of the Italian-American holiday celebration. Typically consumed on

Christmas Eve, which is a vigil or fasting day, the abundance of seafood in the meal reflects the observance of abstaining from meat until the feast of Christmas Day itself.”

Holdiay feasts are a staple across the state and with the large Italian population, particularly in south Louisiana, we thought it fitting to create one with a Louisiana twist.

FROM THE EDITOR

THE CHRISTMAS OF BRENDA LEE AND THE TIGERS By Errol Laborde

Sixty years ago, Christmas season 1958, was an exciting time in

Louisiana. Something no one expected happened. The LSU Tigers football team finished the season undefeated and ranked number one in the nation. Led by a speedster from Baton Rouge named Billy Cannon, the Tigers — by Christmas day — were looking ahead a week to an appearance in the Sugar Bowl against the Clemson Tigers. This was exciting stuff in a state where being number one in anything positive was seldom part of the conversation. Something else happened that Christmas season which didn’t get near as much notice as the Tigers, but that would have staying power and create a romanticized image of Christmas in Louisiana. Brenda Lee, a 14-year-old from Atlanta with a voice and personality that sounded double her age, recorded a countrified classic called, “Rocking Around the Christmas Tree.” It is a good upbeat song enshrined forever on the holiday playlist. For Louisiana, however, the notable news was the song on side B of the record, “Papa Noel.” For this song, Lee faded into a theatric Cajun accent to express the hopes of being down on the bayou on Christmas Day: Hey Beau, let’s go and get pirogue and push-pole down the bayou, I want to see the Christmas Tree, dance o-fais do do. Have a big time and cut a shine, where all will be gay-o Oh, Santa Claus will come tonight, down on the bayou With each stanza, the last word was emphasized boldly making rhymes out of “bayou,” “fais do do” and “gay-o.” There are Louisiana French references throughout including Nannan and Parrain (godmother and godfather) and ma cher a-mio (my sweetheart). My favorite line is, “Auntie Luce will cook the goose, and she will serve the gumbo.” Why? Because, “Santa Claus will come tonight, down on the bayou.” And he would keep on coming: The song was included in a Brenda Lee albums in 1995, “Little Miss Dynamite,” and ‘99 “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” Yet, like the LSU Tigers’ football dominance, it all started in 1958. On New Years Day, the Tigers beat Clemson 7-0 with the winning touchdown being a half-back pass tossed by Cannon who had been named that season’s Heisman Trophy winner. The game was lethargic but it solidified LSU’s No. 1 spot. “Papa Noel” would never reach No. 1 on the music charts but it survives as a Christmas season perennial, especially in a state where on the day after Christmas, Aunt Luce might very well be making a goose gumbo.

Great Expectations Hosting Thanksgiving for the first time under the critical eye of a Southern granny By Melanie Warner Spencer

Ruby, my maternal grandmother,

was a picky eater and had high expectations when visiting restaurants. Bacon had to be a level of crispy achieved only by some dark magic that enabled the cook to remove it from the pan by divining the precise moment right before it turned black and started to smoke. Coffee was to be served hot as blazes, so that when the cup neared your face it threatened to singe your eyebrows. It was never served hot enough. Each time, Granny would politely request a cup from a fresh pot and then warn

Louisiana Life november/december 2018

the server, “I can tell when you microwave it.” Granny spent decades in the restaurant industry as a server and was never rude or condescending to those who in turn served her. Her delivery was teasing and wry. In places where she was a regular, Granny was beloved. This was all on my mind the first time my husband Mark and I hosted Thanksgiving dinner. The menu that year included bacon greaseseasoned green beans, garlic whipped mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus and a homemade pineapple glazed ham. Guests brought the

desserts and I focused on the rest. Granny, as you might imagine, had strong opinions about ham and didn’t hesitate during the planning stages to tell tales about countless failed holiday hams she had endured over the years. There were dry hams, tough hams and — the worst one of all — an unpardonable canned ham. Grandpa was a fond lover of ham, but he got excited about any slice you put in front of him. He would be easy, but Granny, who never met a holiday ham that fit her specifications, was another story. Not only was this the first time we hosted Thanksgiving, but also the first time we hosted any large family gathering and the first time I attempted to bake a ham. This was no time for complicated experiments, so I consulted the spiral-bound Betty Crocker cookbook gifted to me by Aunt Rita. Between the instructions on the ham and the glazing recipe, I was good to go. By the time my family arrived, the ham was out of the oven and resting. We visited for a bit and then got down to the main event. While everyone else dug into their food, I moved mine around and picked at it, waiting to see the look on Granny’s face when she ate her first bite of ham. The first and all subsequent bites were consumed with nary a word from her end of the table. I couldn’t get a read on her. After the meal however, Granny ended my suspense and declared my holiday ham one of the best she has ever eaten. I silently declared victory. In hindsight, Granny’s pronouncement might have been one of those carefully worded Southern lady compliments designed to spare hurt feelings. Remember: she hated every past holiday ham and simply said mine was the best she had ever eaten. To this day, I don’t know if she really liked the ham or not, but at the time, her affirmation gave me the confidence I needed to tackle cooking for any holiday gathering. It seems Granny’s restaurant expectations were much different than those held out to her granddaughter. Except when it came to the coffee I served with dessert. She sent it back. n

State regulators announced they are lifting the cap on the number of patients that Louisiana doctors can recommend for medical marijuana use. There are currently 47 Louisiana physicians licensed for cannabis. The first medical marijuana crop is slated to arrive in November. As legalization expands nationwide, cannabis stocks are soaring. The legal weed market is estimated to be worth more than $21.6 billion in North America by 2021. Coca-Cola recently announced they are exploring a new line of wellness beverages infused with CBD (cannabidiol, a medicinal compound in marijuana plants that relieves pain and reduces anxiety, but it can’t get you high). See more in our story on page 36.

Holiday Blues Tips for fighting depression during the season of merriment By Fritz Esker

Each holiday season, people are bombarded with

images of happiness. It’s the season for smiles, families, laughter and Hallmark Channel movies about people finding true love. But for many people, this doesn’t match reality. If you feel lonely during the year, that loneliness will likely intensify during the holidays. If you are grieving for a lost loved one, that can also ramp up emotions. Even people with loving families can feel stressed and worn out from the demands of the season. But how can you fight it? n

1 2 3 4 5

If you are lonely or isolated, try participating in community events to meet new people. There’s caroling in Jackson Square on Dec. 16. The Natchitoches Christmas Festival runs throughout the season. Lake Charles’ Light Up the Lake Christmas Festival begins on Nov. 30.

Giving your time to those less fortunate can also be an excellent way to give yourself a feeling of worth and pride while helping others. For volunteering opportunities across the Pelican State, visit volunteerlouisiana.gov. “Find a way to reach out,” said Josh Parker, a licensed clinical social worker with West Jefferson Medical Center. “It can take your mind off your problems."

The Mayo Clinic (mayoclinic.org) emphasizes the importance of acknowledging your feelings.

If you are in mourning or lonely, it’s OK to cry or express your feelings. Non-stop happiness is not realistic. If the feelings of anxiety or depression become overwhelming, speak to a medical professional. Depression-understood.org/information/ louisiana has crisis hotlines throughout Louisiana.

Don’t compare yourself to others.

Phyllis Shnaider, a licensed clinical social worker at Ochsner Medical Center, said, “In our world of social media, it can be difficult to avoid comparing yourself with others around the holidays.” If your family situation isn’t perfect and your social calendar isn’t full, don’t make it worse by beating yourself up over it.

Set limits.

Holiday stress and depression can also come from having too much to do, too many bases to cover. Parker says you should not be afraid to turn down an invite to a party if you need a night to recharge your batteries. “Do what’s going to make you happy,” Parker said. “Take a little time for yourself.”

James Beard Best Chef of the

South Semi-Finalist/Finalist (four times!) and fan favorite on Bravo’s “Top Chef” contestant Isaac Toups brings his fresh brand of cooking, storytelling, and pork fat-inspired magic to his new book “Chasing the Gator, Isaac Toups and the New Cajun Cooking.” Toups, who is chef and owner of Toups Meatery and Toups South in New Orleans, has focused his career on bringing his unique cooking style both home to Louisiana as well as across the country, using tried and true Cajun family food-ways melded with “chi-chi” culinary practices, for a truly transformative dining experience. In “Chasing the Gator,” Toups teaches readers and home cooks how to pass a good time, boil some shrimp and play bourré, with expert advice mixed with the right blend of spicy, salty language. There are a few good Boudreaux and Thibodeaux stories folded in the mix, as well, for good measure. Chapters include “The Homestead,” “The Fish Camp” and “The Boucherie,” which fully encompass Toups’ own experience growing up in the Cajun culture in Rayne, and cooking his way across Louisiana from the prairie to the coast. There are tips on basic steps, such as how to make a roux, to more advanced cooking experiences, such as “Double-Cut Pork Chops with Cane Syrup Gastrique,” which is really just a good ole’ pork chop with fancy gravy.

LOUISIANA MADE

Turning Heads Baton Rouge textile designer Mimi Holaday expands her clothing line and continues looking ahead to new ventures By Jeffrey Roedel photos by romero & romero

A red Rolling Stones tongue taunts

from a cotton tee as she moves swiftly through her efficient home studio in grey yoga pants, describing how she lit one of her hats on fire. “Oh, I have a torch,” she says matter-of-factly. The ribald nature of her explorations — she also poured wax on and sanded the hell out of the hat in question — have now become routine. With her hair tied back, she could be ready to hit the gym, but she’s actually staying in to exercise her creativity. For designer Mimi Holaday, this is peak beast mode. It’s the middle of the afternoon in quiet, suburban Baton Rouge, but the lights are on, bright and ready and reflecting from a large white backdrop. In the fall of 2017 the veteran stylist and textiles designer officially launched Halo Mimi, her own line of men’s and women’s hats and accessories. She was finally settled in after her move from New Orleans when she turned half of her living room into a photography studio — she shoots all of her pristine product photography herself — and two bedrooms into a workshop space. One room is lined with images cut from fashion magazines and sewing machines for shaping and cutting felt and stitching fabrics and applying accessories. The other is a showroom of sorts, studded with finished and in-progress headpieces for Holaday to assess like a collage of muses standing in formation, ready for inspection and inspiration. Earlier in 2017, Holaday turned the heads of local creatives by winning the Top Design Competition at New Orleans Fashion Week. There she bested 10 other blossoming designers with the colorful debut of her first collection of hats and a few couture accessories like her stunning vinyl and lace corset. A longtime stylist who used to outfit musicians, DJs and dancers performing at House of Blues, she had only been making hats for two years. Holaday bought a hat from Harrods in London that inspired her to expand her textiles skills through a hatmaking class in California.

I’m always developing ideas. Even if it’s the same concept hat, I like to refine things each time and play with the look to make each one just a little different.

Louisiana Life november/december 2018


In the wake of her win, she described her aesthetic as “Gatsby meets Gypsy.” The line is high fashion with a flair of freespirited awe, illustrated best by the lucid dream of a piece called Flora, its Victorian palette of dried petals suspended like stardust in a clear crown of vinyl. Jane Austen would have loved it if she ever dropped acid. But beyond the artful use of classic headpiece materials like feathers and flowers, Holaday more often likes bohemian over boundaries. Any daily discovery can ascend to a design centerpiece in Holaday’s eye — the ‘70s grooves of vintage records, a snatch of foraged south Louisiana brush, a spate of silver box nails. The details of her work, from fabric choices to the mono-line graphical stitching inside each hat, often demand a second look. This is free-spirited fashion, and pieces include everything from deer skin and a Queen of Diamonds, to a Fleetwood Mac concert ticket from 1977. Another one she calls “my birdcage,” and today she’s planning a photo shoot for that seductive masquerade hat in a swamp.

Q&A What do you do for inspiration when you feel stressed or stuck in a rut? I like

to indulge in rich culture, embrace spontaneity, read books, learn new things, and meet new people for sure. How has growing up in Louisiana or living here now influenced your work? When I was growing up, my

“I need to figure out how to make this more durable,” she says, holding up a small dragonfly she wants to apply to a new creation. “Maybe a spray resin. I can’t dip it, it’s so delicate.” The New Orleans native found the specimen preserved (read: stuck) to the hood of her truck. She immediately began daydreaming of how to use the insect on a new hat. “I’m always developing ideas,” says the artist who works largely on commissions and prefers creating pieces that are one-of-a-kind. “Even if it’s the same concept hat, I like to refine things each time and play with the look to make each one just a little different,” Holaday says. From fedoras and Panamas to Derby and beach-ready wide-brims, Holaday’s pieces go for hundreds of dollars. She sources the raw materials herself and makes everything in-house. “That allows me to customize and make things at any time and just experiment quickly,” she says. “Mass production is such a pollution problem. Fast fashion is so disposable. I think

people are more conscious now about spending a little more money on something that is better quality, lasts longer and that you know where it came from.” When she feels like she’s in a rut creatively, Holaday travels. That’s how her hatmaking path began in London. “Everytime I’m abroad I have some kind of epiphany,” she says. This summer Holaday and one of her three interns traveled to Italy. The fashion and pace of life on the Mediterranean were like hitting the reset button on her mind, she recalls. Holaday came home and cleared her bulletin board, replacing old images with a fresh look at fashion. Up next, Holaday plans to grow her brand by develMimi Holaday Founder/Designer, oping handbags, belts and Halo Mimi scarves, and bringing her halomimi.com @halomimi.label decked-out Airstream to events and festivals where creative and stylish influencers gather. Her popup shop at South By Southwest in Austin was a big hit with fashion bloggers and new fans alike. Often she wishes she could keep her hands on felt all day, but the life of a creative entrepreneur includes marketing emails and web updates, process scheduling and number crunching, too. “I definitely see Halo Mimi expanding our offerings in the next year, and there’s a lot on the business side that goes along with that,” Holaday says. “But I’m doing what I love, and growing is no reason to be disappointed.” n

The Art of Crime New Orleans police detective and artist Charles Hoffacker finds humanity in the city’s darkest places By John R. Kemp

The French artist Georges Braque

once described art “as a wound turned into light.” In New Orleans, Detective Charles Hoffacker, a 14-year-veteran of the New Orleans Police Department, is shinning light on the city’s wounds through his art. Watching the evening news, one can’t help but wonder how police and other first responders deal with relentless violence and scenes of bullet-ridden young bodies bleeding out in the nation’s inner-city streets, or the gut-wrenching cries of a grief-stricken mother reaching for the lifeless body of her young son lying in a gutter. This is Charlie Hoffacker’s world. It is a dark and violent place that could corrode any sense of humanity. The 37-year-old former homicide detective and now sniper and member of the department’s Tactical Intelligence Gathering Enforcement and Response team, or TIGER team, has seen it all. Yet, he approaches his job with great compassion expressed in words and through his art. His paintings are a sanctuary, a cathartic bridge between these two worlds. Hoffacker’s portraits of victims of violent crimes, murderers and the weapons they use are heart-pounding commentaries on life, despair and violence in the underbelly of a city that loves to celebrate its culture. “I attack those issues from a cynical angle. It’s more intelligent that way,” says Hoffacker, glancing across his crowded home studio to a stack of paintings leaning against a wall. “I could paint landscapes and they would be right, but that’s not the kind of art I want to do. Some people find my paintings offensive, but I like to shock them and make them think. I want to ignite some passion to solve the problems.” Hoffacker joined the force in 2004, a year before Hurricane Katrina devastated New

Orleans. Born in New Mexico, he moved to Chalmette, in 1996 when he was 15 to join his mother with whom he has had a long, troublesome relationship. After graduating from Chalmette High in 1999, he worked at various carpentry jobs until a friend mentioned the New Orleans Police Department was recruiting new applicants. Though he didn’t care much for police at the time, he applied and was accepted. After finishing the academy, Hoffacker was assigned to patrol duty. He later rose to detective and in 2016 joined the TIGER unit.

Along the way, Hoffacker enrolled in Delgado Community College’s criminal justice program to advance his career. While there, he took art courses where he learned how to use conceptual art to relieve the hollowness, sorrow and angst that builds up in him after facing almost daily violence. It’s a tool and a reprieve from it all. That reprieve came to a temporary halt in April 2018 when the studio he shared with another artist burned to the ground, destroying his materials and paintings, including those for an upcoming show. Following the fire, scores

of police officers, strangers, artists and gallery owners rushed in to help him start over with gifts of money, art equipment and, more importantly, kindness. “My work focuses on the darkest side of humanity,” he says. “In a large way, I am grateful for the fire. I get emotional knowing that people believe in me, which is humbling but incredibly encouraging, especially coming from such a tumultuous childhood. I don’t know how the fire will affect my work, but I have this passion backed by this love to create even more intense work.” In recent years, Hoffacker has explored themes from politicians and heads of state to hardened criminals. In his series “Angel Wings,” for instance, he created mosaics of angel wings with hundreds of spent 40-caliber bullet casings gathered from the police shooting range. A 2015 series, “Every Corner,” deals with the homeless. He buys their cardboard signs asking for help and then paints their portraits on them to “reflect the humanity behind the signs.” He donates 50 percent of those sales to Catholic Charities. Another series, “Picture This, Ya Heard,” are portraits of murderers or victims of gun violence. One case stands out. In 2014 a shooter

killed a young man named Buck Cheneau. Hoffacker got close to the family during his investigation. “I connected with that family and their pain,” he says. “Painting Buck’s portrait seemed like something I could do outside police work to help them. They invited me to Thanksgiving dinner, but I didn’t go. I was a reminder of their loss. It’s hard for me not to be upset by a case like that. You get passionate about solving the crime because it hurts.” Hoffacker later arrested the killer. In another, he created a portrait of an infamous New Orleans street criminal not with paint but once again in a mosaic of spent bullet shells. Perhaps his most controversial paintings depict AK-47 assault rifles draped with Mardi Gras beads or morphed into musical instruments. Both “celebrate” clashing cultures in New Orleans. “New Orleans has two sides,” Hoffacker says. “It’s violent and a party town. The AK-47s and Mardi Gras beads are a merging of these two sides. All we worry about is partying or we party to forget the violence. Some people hate these paintings. I got a call from a man who said he couldn’t believe I celebrate violence like

this. I explained, but I’m happy my point got through and got that kind of response. It made him think about it. The AK-47 is the weapon of choice for criminals in New Orleans. It’s such a violent weapon. It’s brutal. It’s raw.” Hoffacker describes his powerful AK-47 paintings as his “Blue Dogs,” referring to artist George Rodrigue’s ubiquitous Blue Dog series. Since the April fire, Hoffacker has refocused his new paintings on the TIGER unit’s crimefighting work and how criminals often celebrate their crimes. “A lot of offenders are brazen while committing crimes,” he says. “They are ostentatious and sometimes pose with their guns on Facebook. They brag about killing people. I’m so excited about this series that I lay awake at night thinking about it.” Although art is an essential part of his life, Hoffacker says he can’t imagine being anything other than policeman. “I love my job,” he says, glancing at an incoming call on his cell phone. “I’d probably make more money from my art, but the unit I’m in has been so successful in solving crimes that I couldn’t live with myself if I abandoned my work.”n

New Orleans has two sides. It’s violent and a party town. The AK-47s and Mardi Gras beads are a merging of these two sides.

Clean Slate Danah and Paul Fisher restored the architectural integrity of their Garden District Greek revival mansion in New Orleans while also putting their own complementary stamp on the remodel By Lee Cutrone Photos by eugenia uhl

Finding an old house that had

not been renovated was paramount to Danah and Paul Fisher when they moved to New Orleans from Chicago five years ago. The couple, who had previously renovated or restored five other homes (including the Benjamin Porter Horton residence, an architecturally significant Prairie style house designed by E.E. Roberts, a contemporary of Frank Lloyd Wright) are staunch advocates of historic preservation. “We’re very strong proponents of restoring things back to their original use,” said Danah. “We’re fortunate to be able to dedicate resources to do it the right way.” In addition to looking for a “clean slate” of a house, the couple, who both hail from the Northeast, focused on neighborhoods, and though it wasn’t a deal breaker, they were interested in working on a classic Greek Revival. They ultimately found an historic Garden District gem that was carved into apartments and had been stripped of many of its original architectural features. A prosperous steamboat agent originally built the house in the 1850s as an elegant residence. When the Fishers purchased it, the house required structural work, a redesign of its subdivided interior and new outdoor landscaping. “We’re avid gardeners so the outdoor space was as important to us as the indoor space,” said Danah. The couple decamped to Slidell for the renovation, which took three years from design through construction. Working with architects Richard Albert and Leslie Raymond

of Albert Architecture and Troy Wilson and Karin Nelson of Nelson Wilson Interiors, they restored existing features such as plaster and fireplaces, and kept new ones — including an ornate arched opening between the double parlors, a coffered ceiling in the kitchen and pickled paneling in the media room — traditional so they would look original to the home. They also worked with landscape architects Kim Alvarez and Allan Basik. “The clients wanted the house and landscaping to be restored to its original 19th-century glory and to appear as continually maintained rather than recently renovated,” says Raymond.

Lachin Ornamental created the ceiling medallion in the dining room. The crystal chandelier is from French Antique Shop and the antique fountain was acquired from another historic Garden District house a few blocks away. (Right) Nelson Wilson Interiors worked with Cabinets by Design to create an airy, light-filled country French kitchen with timeless features including stone floors and a coffered ceiling. The kitchen leads to a garden patio where the Fishers frequently dine and entertain.

(Right) The palette in the formal rooms was drawn from the couple’s collection of antique ornithological and botanical art. The ornate carved opening between the rooms is new but was designed to look like an original architectural feature.

The color palettes of the front rooms are built around the collection of botanical and ornithological art that the Fishers already owned. Pastels are dominant in the formal front of the house, while the hues are vibrant in the more casual, contemporary rear of the house, where the couple created a garden room designed to resemble a Parisian apartment. The goal for the entire house was the same throughout, however.

“We didn’t want it to feel large and cavernous,” said Danah. “It’s very cozy. We can stay in one room or move to another and it’s very intimate.” To furnish each room the team began with chandeliers and rugs, then layered antique, reproduction and new pieces for a fine-pedigreed interior that marries the patina of time with the luxury of modern day comforts.

“It was important for us to use New Orleans-based designers, artisans and furniture sourcing,” said Danah, who along with her husband has taken an active role in each of the couple’s restorations. “We wanted to put a lot of time and TLC and our own personal mark on the house.” n

Ryan Prewitt, the chef and owner of the celebrated PĂŞche Seafood Grill in New Orleans, stands up for the fishes. Universally celebrated for his masterful preparations of seafood, the chef will readily admit the relationship makes for odd bedfellows, but it works well when put into practice. Especially for a holiday feast.

a soft breeze blew in through

open doors overlooking the waterfront as the Pêche restaurant family gathered to celebrate the season with a Feast of Seven Fishes, part of the Italian-American holiday celebration. Typically consumed on Christmas Eve, which is a vigil or fasting day, the abundance of seafood in the meal reflects the observance of abstaining from meat until the feast of Christmas Day itself. This seems not much of a sacrifice and, while not all members of the assembled group identify as either Christian or Italian, they were willing to make this “sacrifice” to share friendship and their passions for the spectacular Gulf seafood for which Pêche in New Orleans is known. Chef Ryan Prewitt likes to share his extended family’s waterfront weekend home with his Pêche family from time to time. On this day it was downright hot outside, leaving Prewitt feeling perfectly comfortable to prepare a winter holiday meal clad in his preferred attire — barefoot, cutoff shorts, a loose open-fronted shirt and a mischievous smile. Puck Hopkins, the restaurant’s general manager and wine director, kept everyone’s glasses full of Peyrassol 2017, the lightest of rosés from Côtes de Provence, as members of the group worked in unison to ready for the meal they would share on the deep screen porch surrounding the elevated home. A table was set with regional pottery and serveware from Potsalot on Magazine Street in New Orleans and pieces of creamy white dinnerware from Beatriz Ball, another Louisiana designer.

Since then, two more states have legalized, bringing the total to 31 states. ¶ With the first crop expected to arrive in pharmacies in November, Louisiana is on the verge of a new industry and a new — and to some, controversial — option for medical treatment for many Louisianans.

People with the following medical conditions: Cancer, HIV/AIDS, wasting syndrome, seizure disorders, epilepsy, spasticity, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, severe autism, chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, severe muscle spasms, Parkinson’s disease and glaucoma. Estimates are that this makes approximately 100,000 Louisianans eligible for medical marijuana.

According to the Mayo Clinic medical marijuana is used “to ease pain, nausea and other side effects of medical treatments, as well as to treat some diseases.”

but cannot be sold in a form to be smoked.

H o w d o pat i e n t s g e t medical marijuana?

Since marijuana is still a schedule 1 narcotic, it cannot legally be prescribed by a doctor. It can, however be recommended, but only by licensed medical providers with a therapeutic marijuana license. As of mid-September, 53 physicians have applied for therapeutic marijuana licenses and 33 have been approved. Louisiana will require only this recommendation. There is currently no state registry or medical marijuana card necessary for purchase. In response to anticipated demand, a handful of specialized medical marijuana health clinics are opening across the state.

Each of the following areas will have a dispensary: Alexandria, Madisonville, Shreveport, West Monroe, Lafayette, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Houma and Lake Charles.

Is medical marijuana covered by insurance?

Marijuana is still currently classified as a schedule 1 drug by the federal government (as is heroin, ecstasy and LSD), and therefore cannot be covered by insurance. According to the United States Drug Enforcement Agency website, “Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” For context and comparison, morphine, oxycodone, cocaine and methamphetamines are schedule 2 substances, meaning they are seen as having some medicinal use. There are efforts at the federal level to have marijuana reclassified as a schedule 2 drug. This past June,

the FDA approved Epidiolex, the first drug derived from a purified extract of the marijuana plant (cannabidiol or CBD). Epidiolex is approved to treat severe pediatric seizure disorders, LennoxGastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. The company won’t be able to market the drug, however, until the DEA reclassifies CBD. All other forms of CBD products are still in violation of federal law. Until the DEA, federal, state, research and medical communities all catch up with one another, this will continue to seem contradictory.

Wh o ’ s g r o w i n g i t ?

There are only two locations in Louisiana permitted to grow marijuana for medical distribution. The first is LSU Ag Center, which will also study the medicinal properties of the plant. LSU has enlisted the help of Las Vegas-based biopharmacy company GB Sciences to help with growth and extraction. The second is Southern AgCenter, which also hired an outside company, Advanced Biomedics. Both locations got the go-ahead to start planting mid-August.

Unlike prescription drugs, medical marijuana products will be subject to Louisiana’s 5 percent state sales tax on goods, as well as local sales taxes in most locations. Revenue will depend on whether these numbers are adjusted and how much is sold.

here is no responsibility that we take more seriously than publishing our annual list of best doctors. We want to be accurate and we want you to understand our methodology. How are the selections made? We partner with Best Doctors, Inc.®, a global benefits provider and medical information services company that connects individuals facing difficult medical treatment decisions with the best doctors. Best Doctors serves more than 40 million members worldwide. Best Doctors undertakes the largest, continuous, peer-topeer survey of the medical profession to develop the Best Doctors in America® List. The Best Doctors in America List is the companion to the Best Doctors proprietary database of close to 50,000 global physicians in over 450 specialties and subspecialties. Close to 40,000 Best Doctors in America, are peer selected as the best 4% of U.S. Physicians. What question is asked of the doctors who nominate and vote? Best Doctors contacts each doctor on the previous list and asks the same question: “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?” Do doctors get a chance to respond to other names recommended? Every doctor has the opportunity both to comment (confidentially) on the other doctors included in his or her specialty and related specialties, and to make additional nominations. As new nominees are added to the database, each undergoes the same peer review process. What happens to the data? Best Doctors has developed proprietary software that analyzes the votes and provides an aggregate score for each physician candidate. This yields a preliminary set of physicians who meet the initial criteria for inclusion. Only physicians who earn consensus of their peers and meet all additional criteria are selected to the database. Best Doctors verifies all physicians in its database for clinical activity and medical licensure.

the years the dominant hospitals have shifted, and they may shift again in the future. The Best Doctors in America database represents the top four percent of physicians practicing in the country and includes many department heads, chiefs of staff and doctors in other major positions at the largest medical centers and health systems nationwide. Do doctors have to pay to be on the list? No! We would never use the list if that were the case. Here is the company’s own statement on that issue: “Best Doctors never takes compensation of any kind from doctors or hospitals in return for listing doctors in its database, nor does Best Doctors pay doctors to participate in its poll.” What are some of the rules that the company uses? Doctors are allowed to vote on others in their hospital and medical practices. The feeling is that those doctors know their peers best – that’s where the survey gets some of its most outspoken evaluations, good and bad. • All of the voting is strictly confidential. • Once a consensus of peer support is achieved, additional research is conducted on credentials, disciplinary actions and clinical activity. • Doctors aren’t notified of their inclusion on the list until after the survey process is completed. Doctors aren’t allowed to pay a fee or required to make a purchase to be included. Are the surveys administered randomly? No. To get opinions with weight and professional credibility, Best Doctors consults the very best. Researchers contact all current physicians on the list, which includes many department heads at major teaching hospitals, and asks them to rate specialists outside their own facilities.

How does this differ from local surveys? Only currently listed Best Doctors physicians are eligible to submit nominations and vote in the poll. Best Doctors does not survey the medical community randomly or in its entirety. The large pool of voting physicians helps eliminate the commercial, financial and other biases of smaller-scale surveys and the potential distortion that results from a random survey of the entire physician community.

Where is the bias? There is no perfect, bias-free way to conduct a ranking of any sort. Though Best Doctors has refined its techniques to eliminate biases through the years, any nomination process that relies on peer evaluations will naturally favor more senior doctors who have had time to develop a reputation. Those who are new in their profession or those who haven’t had much peer interaction will sometimes get less recognition. The breadth and the depth of the voting pool help to eliminate biases and cronyism that might be reflected in smaller surveys. In addition to the peer evaluation, Best Doctors conducts research on each physician’s credentials, disciplinary actions and clinical activity to determine selections.

Is this the definitive list? No. We have no doubt that there are many worthy doctors who weren’t included in the list. We are confident, however, that all who are listed are truly among the best doctors.

The Little Museum That Could The West Baton Rouge Museum’s golden anniversary is a celebration of a parish museum achieving local appreciation, regional relevance and national recognition By Paul F. Stahls Jr. photo by Richard Sexton

Louisiana Life november/december 2018

Now enjoying its reputation as a major

attraction for locals and visitors, the West Baton Rouge Museum (WBRM) in Port Allen was just a name in 1968 when the brand new WBR Historical Association “borrowed” a small former courthouse to house a yetto-be-gathered collection relating to 300 years of regional history. The first flow of donations (from the organizers themselves) provided enough antique furniture, household contrivances, surgical tools, small arms and period apparel to open in 1970, whereupon the general public got involved and turned that flow of art, artifacts and financial contributions into a flood.


Since then the 50-year development of the collection has seen not just steady growth but steadily accelerating growth, the most dramatic spurt occurring from 2006-2017 when director Julie Rose was boosting the significance of the place for locals but also adding galleries and exhibits with themes of geographically broader relevance, ultimately earning national accreditation for the museum in 2009. One of those new themes was the first and still only museum exhibit anywhere that analyzes the work of sugarcane growers and methods of sugar production from field to mill to grocery store, and

another is a study of African American life that spans the centuries from slavery, war and Reconstruction through the decades of the Civil Rights movement. To complement the list of slavery-related topics presented by other River Road museums (see “GO”), Angelique Bergeron, Ph.D., who took the reins of WBRM just in time for its Golden Anniversary year, has adjusted her museum’s slavery theme to celebrate group and individual accomplishments achieved by the enslaved and their descendants against all odds. The Juke Joint exhibit building’s displays and occasional live music honor the much acclaimed Baton Rouge Blues (a lively local variant that burst forth from the west bank’s many all-night honky-tonks in the 1950s and ‘60s), and a new River Gallery will open in spring to honor all things great about the Mississippi. Many more facts and fun can be found in the WBRM’s four acres of historic structures, like the three slave and sharecropper cabins from nearby Allendale Plantation and an 1830 Creole raised cottage called the Aillet House, but the “Most-Nostalgiaper-Foot” award goes to the counters and shelves of the great old 1880s Plantation Store. Contact the WBRM (westbatonrougemuseum.com or 225-336-2422, closed Sunday mornings and Mondays) for details about special presentations like “Running on Steam”designed for school kids; exhibits like folk artist Malaika Favorite’s current “Washboard City” (through Jan. 20) and the National Archives’ “Picturing Nam” opening Nov. 10 (following Port Allen’s annual “Veterans on Parade” procession on Nov. 4). The museum’s annual “Holiday Open House” is scheduled for the afternoon of Dec. 2. n

Like the WBRM, several plantations and museums between Baton Rouge and New Orleans devote significant space and tour time to various aspects of the African American experience here, and many visitors string together a number of those tour sites to learn more. Such a personal pilgrimage might begin with Magnolia Mound and the LSU Rural Life Museum in Baton Rouge (brec.org/magnoliamound; lsu.edu/rurallife), and downriver stops along the west bank could include the River Road African American Museum in Donaldsonville (africanamericanmuseum.org); Oak Alley in St. James Parish (oakalleyplantation.com); and Laura in Vacherie with its incredible slavegenealogy projects (lauraplantation.com). Whitney Plantation in St. John Parish is now the home of emotionally moving slave statuary and memorials (whitneyplantation.com), and rosters of slaves listed by names and skills are posted along the stunning row of 22 cypress slave cabins at Evergreen (evergreenplantation.org). Across the river, San Francisco has preserved the names and job titles of its slaves as listed on 1843 and ’56 inventories (sanfranciscoplantation.org), and a special museum at Destrehan Plantation is devoted to a slave revolt that involved most of the east bank in 1811 (destrehanplantation.org).

Rockin’ and Rollin’ Memphis, Tennessee is for music and barbecue lovers By Cheré Coen

Elvis Presley’s aura saturates

Memphis like the winter sun dancing on the Mississippi River, warming the soul of the city and welcoming everyone to the music and magic of his home. Immerse yourself, and you’ll understand why The King kept his roots here. You can even get a little taste of what his life must have been like.

GRACELAND: EXCESS AND ELEGANCE

Elvis loved watching TV, so he had a TV mounted precariously in the ceiling over his bed at Graceland. You can stare into a TV mounted over your bed, too, if you book one of two King Suites at the latest posh hotel in Memphis, The Guest House at Graceland. Your TV, of course, is a flat screen embedded in red velvet folds, not the big box that dangled over The King. The ceiling TV is part of a hotel that stirs just enough Elvis quirk and subtle Vegas bling into its recipe of elegant Southern hospitality. The Guest House, which two years ago replaced the kitschy Heartbreak Hotel, pays homage to The King with little touches like purple and gold accents, “EP” hall sconces and a TV channel in each room that continuously plays Elvis’s 1968 “Comeback Special,” but it doesn’t descend into a crater of camp. Priscilla Presley supervised the suite designs at this comfortable, charming place to lay your head while you’re exploring Graceland. You’ll need a day or two to do that, because Graceland now has huge exhibit halls filled with such wonders as Elvis’s cars, clothes, records, trophies, firing range, even his airplanes. You’ll learn about his youth in Tupelo, Mississippi, as well as his movies and his family.

DUCK INTO THE PEABODY

It’s not a trip to Memphis without a visit to downtown’s 149-year-old Peabody Hotel, where you can sip a Manhattan or mint julep and watch ducks waddle out of their pond and onto an elevator to ride up to their rooftop home. Inside the hotel, drop by Lansky Bros. and buy a shirt, like Elvis used to do. Don’t forget the hotel’s Feathers Spa, the city’s ultimate ahhhh.


dine

That’s all in addition to touring the Graceland home itself, with its wondrous 15-foot-long white couch in the living room, and, of course, the Jungle Room, with its waterfall and shag-carpeted floor, walls and ceiling. Yes, ceiling. But, at the end of the day, you’ll have had enough of excess, and you’ll be ready to hop the shuttle back across the street to sink into the quiet comfort of the columned Guest House. Grab a drink in the bar, relax in the pool, try a game of bocce, maybe toast a hunkahunka burnin’ marshmallow over the fire pit, then crawl into your ultra-soft robe on the way to a good night’s sleep in your quiet, luxurious room or suite before another dynamic day dawns in Memphis. BYO blue suede shoes.

BUT WAIT. THERE’S MORE

Get an overview of Memphis in style with a classic car tour guided by a Memphis musician. Hop into your ‘50s ride and let Rockabilly (rockabillyrides. com) do the work. Two tours are offered, one Elvis-centric (his apartment, the salon where he got his ducktail greased) and one more general (churches, historic homes). The tours are for one to four people. Rockabilly Rides:

Music lovers won’t want to miss the rowdy downtown street where B. B. King and W.C. Handy got their starts. Elvis would walk over to get bluesy inspiration as a teen. Delve into the blues at B. B. King’s Blues Club. People-watch on Silky O’Sullivan’s patio. There’s nothing upscale about this experience, but it’s quintessential Memphis. Beale Street:

Elvis, B.B., Jerry Lee Lewis and more pressed early discs here, and it’s a fun 45-minute tour with plenty of music, memorabilia, and, oh, the stories. n Sun Studio:

The Guest House at Graceland Elvis loved PB&J, but he adored peanut butter and bananas even more. Visit the hotel’s PB&J bar to either make your own — bread, toasters, peanut butter, jellies and bananas are provided — or enjoy a pre-assembled sandwich. For heartier fare, Delta’s Kitchen serves up juicy steaks, earthy mushroom pasta and more in a casual atmosphere. Don’t miss the bourbon pecan pie. Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous For 70 years, this basement off a downtown alley at 52 S. Second St. has been serving up vinegarmoistened, spicy dry-rubbed Memphis barbecue to ardent local followers as well as, among others, The Rolling Stones. The ribs are a must. Pearl’s Oyster House You’re suffering from oyster withdrawal? Please don’t. The bubbly, garlicky char-grilled morsels are perfect here at 299 S. Main St., washed down with a frosty glass of Ghost River Gold.

Holiday in Lights The Natchitoches Festival of Lights and dinner at Maglieaux’s on the Cane River provide an elegant start to the season by Jyl Benson photo by Romero & Romero

With its waterfront locale and graceful

plantations nearby, Natchitoches’ beauty comes as no surprise but its well-scrubbed appearance does. Old tends to look worn, yet charming. Over 300 years old generally looks ever more so despite its pedigree, but not Natchitoches, the oldest permanent settlement in the Louisiana Purchase. If only we could all age so flawlessly. The city retains much of its historic European-style architecture, the facades of its primarily two-story structures generously laced with wrought iron, stucco and red brick. Front Street, the historic district’s main thoroughfare, is still paved in its original, painstakingly restored brick. Natchitoches’ calendar is well-stocked with interesting things to do and see throughout the year but the Holiday Festival of Lights is the greatest attraction. The small city sees 300,000 twinkling lights and 100 lighted holiday sculptures brightening the banks of Cane River Lake and downtown. The Natchitoches Christmas Festival — ranked by Yahoo! Travel as the nation’s “Best Holiday Light Show” right behind Rockefeller Center and Disneyland — kicks off its 92nd year the weekend after Thanksgiving when the town’s population will swell by100,000 to witness the lighting and the accompanying fireworks display over the water. By the time the lights go out on Jan. 6, 500,000 people will have enjoyed the town’s charms including carriage tours through the Historic District, the Northwestern State University Christmas Gala, and the Christmas Tour of Homes. If attending the holiday light celebration you can enjoy snacks from stalls set up to feed the masses — think grilled gator on a stick, gumbo from a Styro cup and savory Natchitoches meat pies — or you can make a reservation at Maglieaux’s Riverfront Restaurant and retreat for a more memorable dining experience while observing the fireworks through picture windows and sipping champagne from a plush chair. The menu at Maglieaux’s is an amalgamation of the owners’ Italian and Louisianian heritage roots. Some of the Italian recipes have been handed down through Kathy Magliolo’s family for generations and others date back to the Roman Empire. The Spicy Pecan Shrimp are a holiday season-worthy starter combining plump fried shrimp tossed in a bracing horseradish aioli and 64

good bets With 64 unique, smallinns and bed and breakfast establishments, Natchitoches is recognized as the Bed & Breakfast Capital of

Louisiana. A particular favorite is Andre’s Riverview Guesthouse. Local artist and historian, Irma Sompayrac-Willard, designed the guesthouse in the 1950s in the simple architecture of her ancestral home in a village in southwestern France. The three-story cottage on the east bank of the Cane River is in the Historic District directly across

from the riverfont stage and within easy walking distance of restaurants, chic shops and galleries selling elegant, sporty and whimsical clothing, culinary implements, antique and contemporary furnishings, musical instruments, and art in all mediums. There is also a beautiful view of the river and Front Street — and the holiday Festival of Lights.

finished with spicy-sweet praline pecans. The Italian Nachos are over-the-top in the ridiculous (and delicious) way such things tend to be and they are definitely to be shared, unless of course, you are singularly capable of putting down a pile of fried lasagna noodles topped with Bolognese sauce, black olives, creamy Alfredo sauce, and melted Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses before you even encounter the entrees. The Seafood Cannelloni is wickedly good. Tender tubes of house-made cannelloni are stuffed with a blend of crab, spinach and ricotta then topped with a creamy garlic, Parmesan and crawfish sauce. A bit more reserved but still utterly delicious, pork medallions are glazed with a raspberry chipotle sauce, roasted, and served with roasted garlic and rosemary potatoes. n LouisianaLife.com

great louisiana chef

Locally Inspired Chef Jeff Hansell looks close to home for his creative menu at Oxlot 9 in Covington By Ashley McLellan portrait by Romero & Romero

Chef Jeff Hansell is a Gulf Coast

native who has made Louisiana his home as chef of Oxlot 9 in the historic Southern Hotel in Covington. His bag full of culinary tricks of the trade, stem from journeying across the United States honing his chef’s knife and learning skills from top restaurants in Colorado, Alabama and New Orleans. “Each stop has brought something to learn,” he said. “Birmingham has a wealth of great chefs and restaurants along with a large farming community. My time in Aspen, Colorado was the first time I felt out of my element. New ingredients, cooking methods, culture. It taught me to think outside my box of just cooking in the South.” Opened in 2014, Oxlot 9 quickly gained attention both in Louisiana and on a national level, as Hansell was soon named Best New Chef, Gulf Coast by Food & Wine magazine that same year. Hansell gains inspiration from the people and fresh ingredients in and around Covington and south Louisiana, and attributes that, in part, to the innovation found in his restaurant. “I would have never guessed we would have landed here, but am so grateful we have.,” he said. “We have the access to all the local seafood and game of south Louisiana and a huge farming community. I think the ever-changing availability of fresh seafood and produce is what definitely influences our menu the most.” Cooking and creating in the kitchen with the freshest of ingredients has been a lifelong love affair Hansell continues with his wife and business partner Amy at the Southern Hotel. “It’s a culmination of many influences,” he said. “At a young age I remember a lot of our gatherings and celebrations being centered around food. Also, Amy, who is always challenging and creating by my side; the past, present, and future staff at each restaurant, who are always pushing as hard as we are; the patrons, that sing our praises. It was complete fate that we drove past the Southern Hotel in its first stages of renovations. We were hunting for a spot to finally open a restaurant of our own and fell in love in love with the property.” n

Dessert Dreams Ice creams and puddings are a simple and sweet addition to your holiday table by Stanley Dry photos and styling by Eugenia Uhl

With the holidays almost upon

us, dessert fantasies are a common occurrence — pies, cakes, cookies, candies, all manner of sweets. I love every one of them, but I have a special place in my heart for ice creams and puddings. Many have custard as the base, and some are served with a custard sauce. Custard, at its simplest, is merely egg yolks, milk, sugar and a flavoring cooked into a smooth rich concoction that can be served as a sauce or turned into an ice cream or a pudding. In my opinion, ice cream has no season, so I’ve included recipes for two versions in this month’s column. The eggnog ice cream, gently spiked with brandy and dark rum, is particularly appropriate for the holidays, but making or enjoying it shouldn’t be limited to this time of year. I’m very fond of tiramisu, so I developed a recipe for tiramisu ice cream which incorporates most of the elements of the dessert: mascarpone, eggs, sugar, cream, coffee, brandy and chocolate. It’s not essential, but if you serve it with ladyfingers, you will have touched all the bases. I’m also a big fan of bread pudding, which is a Louisiana staple. It frequently appears on restaurant menus, and I always order it. It’s amazing and intriguing how many variations there are on such a humble dish. This month’s recipe includes caramel in the pudding, and it’s served with a custard sauce containing bourbon. Rice plays a large and essential role in Louisiana cuisine, but it’s seldom an ingredient in our desserts, which is puzzling. Sweet rice preparations appear often in French cookbooks, ranging from simple rice puddings to the ethereal riz à l’impératrice, and early Louisiana cookbooks included recipes for a variety of rice desserts, but the tradition hasn’t much survived to the present day. My recipe for rice pudding couldn’t be simpler, but it’s elevated by folding in whipped cream at the end. I serve it with a persimmon sauce, although other fruit or berry sauces could be substituted. n

State of Medicine

M

edical offerings in Louisiana continue to expand as health care systems, hospitals, and private practices gain new programs and technologies. A big part of Louisiana’s gain comes from its people—the physicians and surgeons who have dedicated their careers and lives to bringing top-notch quality healthcare to the residents of the state. Getting high quality healthcare here at home makes a huge difference in the ability to access treatment and seek recovery for area patients. Patients suffering from cancer will find hospitals expanding services in both the northern and southern parts of the state. Patients losing their sight to glaucoma can find an expert to consult nearby. Urgent orthopedic issues can be treated without an appointment on Saturdays in the New Orleans area. This news and more is what you’ll learn in this month’s State of Medicine report, and the state of medicine looks as healthy as ever. For more than 90 years, WillisKnighton Health System has been closely tied to the health and life of Northwest Louisiana. This not-for-profit community health system, guided by a volunteer board of trustees, has grown by responding to the needs of the people it serves. It was the first hospital in Louisiana to develop a satellite (Willis-Knighton

South), the first in the region with a center for women’s health, and the first to create an innovation center with virtual hospital for medical and allied health training. It also developed an active adult community to respond to the health of older citizens. Today, Willis-Knighton is the only Louisiana provider with innovative proton therapy

to treat cancer. Focusing on the future, it initiated collaborative partnerships with LSU School of Medicine for student training and funding of programs.

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness, particularly among older patients. The early signs of glaucoma should be taken very seriously, and followed closely by your eye doctor. The disease is complex to diagnose, and even more complex to treat. One of Louisiana’s few fellowship-trained glaucoma specialists, Dr. Julie Foreman is a board certified ophthalmologist who specializes in glaucoma, cataracts, and MIGS (minimally invasive glaucoma surgery). After receiving her medical degree from LSU School of Medicine, Dr. Foreman completed a residency at the Hamilton Eye Institute at UT Memphis. She received fellowship training at Tulane University under leading glaucoma expert, Dr. Ramesh Ayyala. Her practice offers a full range of surgical and nonsurgical ophthalmic procedures and general eye care. Centrally located in Lafayette, LA, Dr. Foreman’s practice is at the forefront of ophthalmologic care in Louisiana. If you have questions about glaucoma or other eye issues, contact the practice at 337-541-1700 or visit JulieForemanMD.com. Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, located in Lafourche Parish, recently announced plans to construct a new state-of-theart cancer facility. The new cancer facility will accommodate the growth the Center is experiencing and will position Thibodaux Regional for the future of care, treatment, and support for those affected by cancer. According to Greg Stock, Thibodaux Regional CEO, “The new Cancer Institute will provide the springboard for continued growth and development of cancer services— into the future. That future aligns with our vision and includes important innovations such as

integrating wellness into the clinical aspects of cancer care.” The $35M, five-story building will provide nearly 100,000 square feet, allowing for growth of the hospital’s cancer program, and will include Radiation Therapy, Chemotherapy/Infusion Area, Medical Oncology Clinic, Education Center, Wellness Services, Activity Center, Library, Diagnostics Center, Conference Center, Laboratory, Pharmacy, and a Chapel. Construction is expected to begin December 2018. For more information on Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, visit Thibodaux.com.

Musical Accompaniment Sulphur music teacher Mickey Smith, Jr. uses music to connect and build community By Megan Hill portrait by romero & romero

Though he’s now a professional

musician and award-winning middle school band teacher, Mickey Smith, Jr. played so poorly as a child his mother asked him to practice outside. His grandmother bought him his first sax, though no one in his family played music. Smith honed his skills in the woods around his southwest Louisiana home, gradually going from ear splitting to melodic. His high school band director encouraged his talent. Smith grew up in Mossville, an unincorporated settlement in Calcasieu Parish founded by freed slaves in 1790. The community is mostly gone. Residents were either pushed out by pollution from a nearby chemical plant, or bought out by expanding petrochemical company Sasol. It’s a history Smith carries with him. “It’s important that my music and my message help keep that community alive,” he says. Smith was the first person in his family to graduate college, and that formative band teacher — among others — inspired a music education master’s degree and Smith’s current career as head band director at Maplewood Middle School in Sulphur. He also plays in a band called Sax in the City and runs a professional development program for music educators called Sound 180. “I want folks to recognize that education is the profession that creates all professions,” he says. “We should be uplifting our educators.” It’s a career at which he excels. Smith was named a national finalist for a GRAMMY Music Educator Award, and today he travels the country as a motivational speaker, using music as a way to connect with his audiences. Since starting at Maplewood in 2009, he’s expanded the music program from 30 students to 160 — about a third of the school. “When you have that many kids in a program, and you develop a culture of learning, and a culture of community,” Smith says, “And that permeates throughout the rest of the school.” n

I love this place that I call home. I refer to it as south-Best Louisiana.
