    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A federal appeals court says a Hispanic Iraq War veteran can revive his lawsuit over a beating by two New Orleans police officers who he said called him a “fake American.” The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate reports that the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Jorge Gomez on Nov. 18. Gomez is a U.S. native who was raised in Honduras and served with the National Guard in Iraq. He encountered the two off-duty officers inside a bar on the night of July 24, 2018. Gomez was wearing fatigues and a beret. He said the officers, both of whom are white, questioned his military service and called him a “fake American” before beating him outside. The New Orleans Police Department quickly fired both officers. Officer John Galman eventually pleaded guilty to simple battery, while Officer Spencer Sutton pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace. In July 2019, Gomez sued the city and the former officers in federal court. However, U.S. District Judge Barry Ashe found that the city wasn’t liable in the lawsuit...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Brandon Younger scored the game-winner with a putback off a missed 3-pointer at the buzzer as Presbyterian defeated New Orleans 68-66 on Thursday. Rayshon Harrison had 18 points to lead Presbyterian (4-2), but his 3-point try to break a 66-66 tie clanked nearly straight back through the lane where Younger caught it in midair and sent it back for the win.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Brandon Ingram scored 26 points, Jonas Valanciunas added 21 points and 11 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans won for just the fourth time, beating the Washington Wizards 127-102 on Wednesday night. “I like that we responded,” Ingram said, referring to a 110-96 loss to Minnesota on Monday in which he shot 2 of 13. “It looked like we took it personal, came out with a little more pop today.” READ MORE: Kuznetsov, Ovechkin Lead Caps Over Canadiens 6-3Josh Hart highlighted his 16-point performance with a running half-court bank shot as he was fouled in the final second of the third quarter.

    Getty LA Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe throws a pass during a game against the San Antonio Spurs. The LA Clippers‘ November 19 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans was, without question, one of the team’s weakest efforts in recent memory. Ty Lue’s team literally made a bit of Pelicans history with its 26-point second half. Things were even worse, though, for Eric Bledsoe. Whenever Bledsoe — who appeared in 71 games as a member of the Pels last season — touched the ball, the fans at the Smoothie King Center let him know exactly how they felt about him. Apparently, there’s no love lost there, as the Clippers guard was booed vociferously every time. The experience left Bledsoe utterly perplexed. “Oh no, I wasn’t expecting that,” Bledsoe said when asked about his reception. “That was kind of weird to me, but it’s part of the game.”Bledsoe Wasn’t His Best Self in NOLA Play Eric Bledsoe (21 PTS, 6 REB) Made Plays and Brought the Energy vs. Chicago Bulls | LA ClippersSubscribe for all-access content, game highlights, and...

    The Archdiocese of New Orleans has agreed to pay back $1million after claims it fraudulently used government disaster relief money following Hurricane Katrina, despite filing for bankruptcy over sexual abuse allegations.  Robert Romero, a former project manager for AECOM engineer firm, filed a whistleblower lawsuit in 2016, saying the church received $46milllion from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 2005.   Romero accused the firm of inflating estimates for repairs for the archdioceses, among others, such as Xavier University of Louisiana - which is Catholic, but is run by an independent Board of Trustees - and Dillard University, a Methodist school.  He accused the California-based company and former employee Randall Krause of gaming the system to get larger payments after FEMA hired the company following the storm.  The lawsuit claimed the religious institution received $10million extra for St. Raphael's school cafeteria building and $36million extra for two assisted living buildings in Villa St. Maurice in the Holy Cross area of the archdiocese.  The Archdiocese of New Orleans (pictured: admin office) has agreed to pay back $1million in relief fund money...

    Marlin Gusman, Orleans Parish sheriff, may soon find himself out of office after 17 years now that he's headed for a runoff election with Susan Hutson. Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman is facing his first major challenger in years. The sheriff, who’s been in power for 17 years and automatically won his 2017 re-election bid because no one challenged him, has found himself in a runoff with former police monitor Susan Hutson. The two could not be more different in their approach to running the office that oversees Orleans Parish Prison. This is especially obvious with Gusman’s desperate plea to keep predatory prison phone call rates in place in order to generate more revenue for his office. Gusman made a fuss about this ahead of last Saturday’s election, claiming that the 21 cents per minute rate doesn’t “cost a fortune” and that his office desperately needs the alleged $2 million in revenue those calls bring in, though records show that the sheriff’s office made $773,000 from calls last year. That accounts for around 1% of the office’s budget, according to...
    Former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, tapped by President Joe Biden last weekend for the new position of infrastructure implementation coordinator, has a decidedly mixed record on the subject. This is despite the fact that Landrieu is a popular politician generally credited with helping rebuild the city of New Orleans, which had been severely damaged during Hurricane Katrina and had suffered chronic economic problems. But local observers say that perennial "dysfunction" in infrastructure projects continued even after Landrieu took office as mayor. HOW MUCH BANG FOR THEIR BUCK WILL TAXPAYERS GET FROM BIDEN'S INFRASTRUCTURE BILL? While leading New Orleans from two terms, Landrieu elicited praise for cleaning up the city's finances, attracting billions of federal dollars for infrastructure, and for removing a quartet of Confederate statues. He won each election with more than 60% of the vote and with a majority share of both white and black voters. Coming on the heels of the scandal-plagued Ray Nagin, Landrieu was named America's top turnaround mayor in 2016 and even generated buzz for a presidential run....
    WACO, Texas (AP) — Queen Egbo scored 22 points on 11-of-12 shooting and had 11 rebounds as sixth-ranked Baylor improved to 3-0 under new coach Nicki Collen with a 78-39 victory over New Orleans on Monday night. Preseason AP All-America forward NaLyssa Smith also had a double-double, her second straight, finishing with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Sarah Andrews had 12 points and Caitlin Bickle scored 10. After three games in seven days to open the season, the Bears have their biggest test so far on Sunday at third-ranked Maryland. They then play games on three consecutive days in the Cancun Challenge, starting on Thanksgiving morning. Brianna Ellis had 16 points and Jomyra Mathis 14 for the Privateers (0-2), who at least took a lead in another lopsided loss to a Big 12 team. New Orleans quickly fell behind 17-0 in losing its opener 131-36 last week at Texas, which moved up from 25th to 12th in the new AP poll earlier Monday after then beating defending national champion Stanford on the road. The Privateers had more turnovers (38) than...
    The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans agreed to pay $1 million to settle allegations of false disaster relief claims after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. The settlement resolves allegations that the archdiocese knowingly filed false claims for Federal Emergency Management Agency funding to fix or replace properties damaged from Hurricane Katrina between 2007 and 2013, the Department of Justice announced on Monday. These “included false information to inflate the repair estimate, such as damage to a nonexistent air conditioning system, and false information to deflate the replacement estimate, such as misstated square footage of the building,” according to a DOJ statement. LOUISIANA JUSTICE SYSTEM FUNDING OVERHAUL CONTINUES; REPLACEMENT FUNDING REMAINS ELUSIVE Though the archdiocese denied the allegations, the settlement said the parties came to an agreement on a $1 million payment “to avoid the delay, uncertainty, inconvenience, and expense of protracted litigation.” “FEMA offers critical financial support when natural disasters strike,” said acting Assistant Attorney General Brian Boynton. “The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that these taxpayer funds are properly spent to...
    The White House announced late Sunday night Mitch Landrieu, a former New Orleans mayor, has been tapped by President Joe Biden to oversee his $1.2 trillion infrastructure plan. The bill authorizing the historic spend is expected to be signed Monday. A Biden administration statement outlined Landrieu, 61, will act as senior advisor to the president under the title of infrastructure coordinator of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Landrieu will be tasked with coordinating investments that will create millions of jobs while overhauling the nation’s infrastructure from roads and bridges to airports and ports. “Landrieu will oversee the most significant and comprehensive investments in American infrastructure in generations,” the White House said, as reported by UPI. Landrieu’s experience as mayor of New Orleans from 2010-2018 and lieutenant governor of Louisiana from 2006-2010 was cited by the administration as preparation for the job although no mention was made of his personal Civil War-era monument removal crusade.

    (CNN)President Joe Biden has selected former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu to oversee the implementation of the roughly $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, the White House announced Sunday evening.Landrieu's role underscores the substantial effort that officials say it will take to enact the massive piece of legislation, which is the first of its kind in decades. Biden and congressional Democrats hope to have some tangible benefit from the new law before next year's midterm elections but are mindful that the appearance of wasted money could sour the public on a package that, for now, remains widely popular.Biden will sign the infrastructure bill Monday during a ceremony that will include members of Congress, governors and mayors from both parties."I am thankful to the President and honored to be tasked with coordinating the largest infrastructure investment in generations," Landrieu said in a statement released by the White House Sunday. "Our work will require strong partnerships across the government and with state and local leaders, business and labor to create good-paying jobs and rebuild America for the middle class. We will also ensure...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden has chosen as supervisor of his $1 trillion infrastructure plan Mitch Landrieu, who as New Orleans mayor pushed the city into recovery after the devastation from Hurricane Katrina. Landrieu will be tasked with coordinating across federal agencies to work on roads, ports, bridges and airports, the White House said Sunday. Biden is expected to sign the infrastructure bill into law on Monday. Landrieu, 61, was formerly the Louisiana lieutenant governor and took over as mayor of New Orleans in 2010, five years after Katrina swamped the city and as the area’s recovery stalled — and as a massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico polluted the state’s coastline. He secured billions in federal funding for roads, schools parks and infrastructure, and turned New Orleans “into one of America’s great comeback stories,” the White House said in a statement. “I am thankful to the president and honored to be tasked with coordinating the largest infrastructure investment in generations,” Landrieu said in the statement. “Our work will require strong partnerships across the...
    By Kevin McGill | Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — They were only 6 years old, aware of the tumult going on about them but not completely understanding the importance of what they were doing. “I was just afraid. I didn’t know what was going on and what they were thinking,” Gail Etienne said of the angry crowds on the day, 61 years ago, when she was escorted into McDonogh 19 elementary school in New Orleans. She was one of four first-graders integrating the city’s public schools amid protests from angry white mobs. “I just knew I was going to a new school,” she said following a news conference kicking off a weekend of events heralding the “New Orleans Four” — Etienne, Leona Tate and Tessie Provost, who entered the previously all white McDonogh 19 on Nov. 14, 1960; and Ruby Bridges, who that same day was escorted into William Frantz Elementary in New Orleans, a moment made famous in a Norman Rockwell painting. The activities come a year after the city honored the four on the 60th anniversary, but without...
    Getty Kevin White has been added to the New Orleans Saints' 53-man roster. Kevin White has found a new home with the New Orleans Saints. The former seventh overall pick for the Chicago Bears in 2015 was signed to the Saints’ 53-man roster, as first reported by ESPN insider Fields Yates. White had been added to the team’s practice squad in August, and has impressed head coach Sean Payton and company since then. “He’s young and someone we’d like to work with,” Payton told the Saints’ official website in August. “I like the way he runs. You see it on tape. Obviously, he’s a former first-round pick, so he’s still a younger player.” White has played 32 snaps in his three games with the Saints so far this season, catching his first pass in an NFL game since 2018. It was a key 38-yard grab in New Orleans’ Week 8 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he has since seen his role expand on both offense and special teams.

    Your best player gets sidelined for a lengthy period, perhaps the rest of the season, and yet you prosper. That’s been the strange scenario recently in Music City, where the Tennessee Titans still have their groove despite losing running back Derrick Henry — also the top player in the AFC South — to a broken foot. “Derrick’s a guy, he’s hard to replace,” center Ben Jones says. “He’s done it multiple years now. We kind of got a rhythm with him, knowing how he hits runs and stuff. So it’s definitely some learning curve, and we’ve got to do as an offensive line. We’ve got to keep grinding and just make this run game come to life.” Tennessee (7-2), with a 3 1/2-game lead in the division and standing atop the entire conference, hosts New Orleans (5-3) on Sunday. The Titans are 6-0 against 2020 playoff teams, including wins in four straight games. Tennessee has won five straight overall, the longest active streak in the NFL. The Saints, 4-1 in games played outside New Orleans, are without their starting...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — This past week was defined by bad news for the New Orleans Saints, who learned they’ll have to manage for the rest of this season without starting quarterback Jameis Winston and top receiver Michael Thomas. Yet New Orleans (5-2) heads into a Week 9 clash with Atlanta (3-4) on Sunday in the Superdome trying to move into a tie atop the NFC South. And based on recent history, the Saints have few reasons to doubt their chances of winning their fourth straight game. The Saints have been trying to juggle the roster all season with a slew of injuries to prominent players, as well as a six-game suspension to top defensive tackle David Onyemata. Thomas, a two-time All-Pro who was trying to come back from offseason ankle surgery, hasn’t played at all. Other starters missing games during the first eight weeks included receiver Tre’Quan Smith (five games), linebacker Kwon Alexander (five) center Erik McCoy (four), defensive end Marcus Davenport (four), left tackle Terron Armstead (two), cornerback Marshon Lattimore (one), left guard Andrus Peat (one),...
    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Irvin Mayfield, the jazz trumpet player who became a symbol of New Orleans resilience after Hurricane Katrina, faced up to five years in prison Wednesday for steering charity money meant for public libraries to his personal use. Mayfield’s musical and business partner, pianist Ronald Markham, also could get five years at their sentencing in federal court. Both pleaded guilty last November to a single charge of conspiracy to commit fraud. Prosecutors alleged they steered more than $1.3 million from the New Orleans Public Library Foundation to themselves, largely by funneling it through the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, which Mayfield founded. “Book One,” an album by Mayfield and the Jazz Orchestra, won a Grammy in 2010. But the library foundation scandal led to his resignation as artistic director of the orchestra in 2016 while scrutiny of his role with the library grew following investigative reports by WWL-TV. Markham and Mayfield each faced a possible 5-year prison sentence. Mayfield was among musicians who took a high-profile role in promoting New Orleans after levee failures and catastrophic flooding during...

    FLAG on the play! This past Sunday's NFL game left one player injured! During the New Orleans Saints versus Tampa Bay Bucaneers game, Saints quarterback Jameis Winston suffered a major injury. 2The Saints quarterback sustained major leg injuries after Sunday's game (Credit:Getty)Credit: AP What happened to Jameis Winston? In the second quarter of the game, Winston was tackled by Bucaneers linebacker Devin White. During White's horse collar tackle, Winston's leg landed in an awkward manner. When White tackled the Saints quarterback, he pulled Winston down by the shoulder area of his jersey. The odd manner in which he landed caused his left leg to get pinned behind him as he hit the ground. Winston's awkward landing on his leg during White's tackle is ultimately what contributed to his injury. The New Orleans Saint's back up quarterback, Trevor Siemian, filled in for Winston for the rest of the game.

    Getty Could Andy Dalton be heading South? Anything can happen in the NFL, particularly leading up to the trade deadline. Considering that, it’s interesting multiple Chicago Bears insiders are pointing to an NFC contender as a new potential trade destination for veteran quarterback Andy Dalton. Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune revealed in his November 1 column that considering the recent injury to New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston, a door may have opened for the Bears — albeit a tiny one. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Winston suffered a torn ACL Week 8, while also damaging his MCL. He will miss the rest of the regular season as a result.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Tom Brady gets the ball with his team down 2 points and just over 90 left in the game; he has a timeout to work with.  Good game, Bucs win, right? Wrong. On Halloween, the ghost of Drew Brees took over Tom Brady’s avocado-fueled body, leading the GOAT to throw a pick-6, giving the Saints a win. But let’s not pin this loss all on poor old Tom. He had an outstanding second half, throwing a trio of touchdowns, even giving the Bucs’ defense one last chance to simply stop Saints backup Trevor Siemian and take home the W. Instead of doing its job, the Bucs defense did what they had done all day; committed a couple stupid penalties (they ended up committing 11 tota for 99 yards) and allowed a no-name quarterback to pick them apart like they were a high school JV team.  Siemian ended up with a TD and 159 yards through 3 quarters. Not groundbreaking, but had he played a full game, Jameis Winston’s backup...
    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more During a recent trip, a Care2 employee witnessed the heartbreaking reality for carriage horses in America. The poor horses were strapped to carriages that carried up to eight adults and forced to pull them around. Not only was it extremely hot, but it was also on hard concrete in busy city centers. This environment is extremely stressful and overwhelming for horses. When you add in having to lug around a heavy carriage full of people, it’s excruciating. One of the horses they witnessed struggled to move and was displaying physical signs of distress. While many associate horse-drawn carriages with romantic and quaint scenes, they are anything but enjoyable for the horses involved. Many are hit by cars, collapse from exhaustion, and suffer a multitude of health issues, including respiratory issues from car exhaust. They don’t even get enough breaks to rest or drink an adequate amount of water. Thus, their life expectancy is very low. In addition to the pain inherent to the horses’ 9-hour “work day,” these horses are...
    (CNN)It feels like, in the regular season at least, that the New Orleans Saints have Tom Brady's number. The legendary quarterback has now lost his last three regular season games against New Orleans since his move to Florida after the Saints beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 36-27 on Sunday. Brady, who was on the winning side in a divisional playoff meeting last season, threw four touchdowns against the Saints but, despite dragging his side back from a heavy deficit, could not get the job done. With five minutes and 44 seconds left, the 44-year-old threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to Cyril Grayson, which looked to have the Buccaneers on their way, but it wasn't to be. Fan who gave historic 600th touchdown ball to Tom Brady asks for a round of golf in returnWith just one minute and 24 seconds on the clock, Saints safety P.J. Williams intercepted Brady and ran 40 yards for a touchdown to help seal a thrilling victory over the Super Bowl champions. Read More"It's tough to win when you turn the ball over like...

    (CNN)A New Orleans man will have nearly $30,000 returned to him after it was seized by DEA agents at the Columbus International Airport in Ohio last year.According to a settlement agreement signed Thursday, the federal government agreed to dismiss its civil forfeiture case.Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents seized $28,180.00 of Kermit Warren's money at the Columbus airport last November while Warren was traveling home after inspecting a tow truck he considered buying for his scrapping business, according to a release from the Institute for Justice, a non-profit whose lawyers helped Warren reach a settlement in the case.According to the Institute for Justice, Warren was never arrested or charged with a crime and the seizure "was based on vague innuendo and baseless accusations that the money was connected to drugs."The US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Ohio filed a civil forfeiture lawsuit to keep the money in April, arguing the "currency is forfeitable to the United States (...) because it represents property furnished or intended to be furnished in exchange for a controlled substance, represents proceeds traceable to such...
    NEW ORLEANS–Joe Rogan and Dave Chappelle came together before a sold-out crowd in The Big Easy Thursday, teaming up for a joint event centered on mocking their critics and defying cancel culture. Fans of both comedy stars filled the Smoothie King Center on the edge of New Orleans' French Quarter, with no intention to heed calls from some to shun them over their recent controversies.  The two faced a swath of criticism in recent weeks stemming from Rogan's outspoken views against the coronavirus vaccine and in favor of certain treatments for the virus, and Chappelle's jokes about transgender people in his recently released Netflix special, "The Closer."

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Three men have pleaded guilty in connection with a summer shooting that left a 12-year-old New Orleans girl dead and outraged a city already struggling with a rise in murders. The Times-Picayune / The New Orleans Advocate reported that the parents of Todriana Peters were in the courtroom Wednesday when the three men pleaded guilty. One man, Pernell Young, admitted to opening fire during the May 30 shooting outside a graduation party while prosecutors said the other two — 18-year-old Marcus Venible, and 19-year-old Tyrese Riley — were not shooters. Peters’ death was part of a wave of homicides starting last year that has rattled the city. After a 2019 that marked the lowest number of homicides in nearly half a century, New Orleans saw the number of people killed skyrocket in 2020. This year homicides are up 5% over the same time period last year, according to information on the City Council’s website. Assistant District Attorney Alex Calenda told the court that Young, Venible and Riley were in a pair of cars on their way...
    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans is largely ending a mandate requiring residents and visitors wear masks indoors as infections of the highly contagious delta variant of the coronavirus continue to fall, the city’s mayor announced Wednesday. Mayor LaToya Cantrell said in a news release the mandate will be lifted Friday, with some exceptions: Masks will still be required in healthcare facilities, on public transportation and in K-12 schools. That comes as the city slowly revives some of the large-scale events that it was known for before the pandemic. On Saturday thousands crowded city streets for the first large parade — Krewe of Boo — since Mardi Gras 2020. The 2020 parades were largely considered fuel for New Orleans becoming an early virus epicenter. Music festivals and parades that normally draw hundreds of thousands of people, including this year’s Mardi Gras, were canceled. But it increasingly looks as if the city will host Mardi Gras parades next year. On Friday, Cantrell said the parades will go ahead if there’s no dramatic rise in coronavirus infections. The city’s mask...
