Saving Louisiana (1:13) The man credited with restoring order to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina says he will fight through blood, sweat and tears to improve the state’s environment. Retired Lt. General Russell Honore is leading the Green Army.

1973 Constitutional Convention (20:29) It has been 40 years since Louisiana’s 1973 Constitutional Convention. Decisions were made then that still greatly affect the state today.

One hot topic discussed was whether it’s time for a new constitution. SHARE

A Rural Life Christmas (22:31) Charlie Whinham takes us back in time to all the sights, sounds and trimmings of a 19th century Christmas. It’s an annual tradition at the LSU Rural Life Museum visited by thousands each year. SHARE
