Budget Battle at the Captiol, Marie Therese Coincoin, Top This Marriage Proposal

Budget Battle at the Capitol (6:32) Dealing with a $304 million shortfall in the state spending plan, Democrats and Republicans in the Louisiana Capitol can’t agree on whether to tap the state’s “Rainy Day Fund,” or how much. Kelly Connelly has more about the tense negotiations. SHARE


Happy Marie Therese Coincoin Day (12:13) What is Marie Therese Coincoin Day? It’s an annual event held along the Cane River Creole National Historic Area celebrating the life of a freed slave who would go on to become a landowner, businesswoman, nurse, hunter and tobacco grower. Charlie Whinham tells us about the celebration from Isle Brevelle. SHARE


Top This Marriage Proposal (20:02) We pull out one of our show’s most romatic Louisiana stories for this Valentine’s Week. Back in 2014, Louisiana resident Max Zoghbi wanted to ask Bonnie Kate Pourciau to marry him, but he wanted it to be memorable, if not shocking. Max pulled off one of the most elaborate and surprizing marriage proposals you will ever see. SHARE
