Pet adoption fees will be reduced at six animal shelters in Louisiana during the first week of October as part of the BISSELL Pet Foundation national event “Empty the shelters”. BISSELL Marketing Specialist Brittany Schlacter and Director of Operations for the Northshore Humane Society, Alex Coogan, tells us more about the importance of animal rescue and adoption.
But first, we discuss the upcoming elections. All eyes will be on the Congressional midterm elections this fall. But reports indicate that State Senator Karen Carter Peterson’s abrupt departure from the legislature will hold an intriguing special election this fall that will pit two well-known progressive politicians against each other – Mandie Landry and Royce Duplessis – One against the other. Capitol Access Reporter Paul Brown gives us a glimpse of this upcoming election.
Sunday sunset marked the start of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. As people of the Jewish faith gather for services or simply to reflect on the past year, we wanted to return to a discussion of the deep and vibrant Jewish history of the South.
