After Delta rips tarps off homes of Laura victims, Operation Blue Roof to restart in Louisiana | Weather/Traffic

After Hurricane Delta ripped off the blue tarp roofs installed after Hurricane Laura tore through southwest Louisiana, Gov. John Bel Edwards said Sunday the state is returning to a federal program for storm victims to get the temporary roofs put on their homes once again.

“Many of those (tarps) didn’t make it through Hurricane Delta,” Edwards said during a brief news conference before touring more storm-affected parishes. “So we’re going to turn that back on for the same six parishes” that were eligible for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers program.

Those parishes are Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, Jefferson Davis and Vernon parishes. People can call (888) 766-3258 or go to usace.army.mil/blueroof to sign up. 

Edwards said the number of power outages has been cut in half, from a peak of 688,000 outages to 348,609 as of noon Sunday. While Delta cut a wide swath of damage to electrical grids,

‘Johnny A’ stepping down: Serenity Homes celebrates 25 years | Local News

Being a part of Serenity Homes has meant “my life,” said the young man. “Johnny has helped me get back on my feet. He gave me a job (and) self-confidence.”

Today, “I’m feeling excellent,” said Anthony. “I take it day by day and go by faith, not by fear.”

Looking at what Apodaca has built over the past 25 years is inspirational, said Anthony. “I know that if he can do it, I can do it,” he said.

Butch T., another Serenity Homes resident, said that from living in the Napa community his whole life, he knew of Apodaca and the program. So when Butch admitted his own drinking had become a problem, Johnny “graciously provided a safe place for me to be.”

He’s been at Serenity Homes since May 14, said Butch. “Life has definitely taken a turn for the better,” he said. He’s employed and is also now

Study Shows Black Americans Are Paying More to Own Homes

In a new study from MIT, it has been reported that Black Americans are often forced to pay more than any other group of individuals to own a home.

CNN reports that Black homeowners on average pay more in mortgage interest, mortgage insurance, and property taxes than other homeowners. Written by Edward Golding, MIT’s executive director of the Golub Center for Finance and Policy, the paper concludes that the vast difference between what Black homeowners and white homeowners pay indicates that it’s considerably more difficult for Black homeowners to accumulate wealth through ownership at the same rate as white homeowners. 

The differences between mortgage payments is $743 per year, mortgage insurance premiums $550 per year, and property taxes at $390 per year. Totaling $13,464 “over the life of the line,” the gap could result in up to $67,320 in lost retirement savings. 

“The small differences compounding over the life of

Experience matters in real estate

Real estate is in Lisa Cashion’s DNA, and the industry seeped in through osmosis, as her mother was one of the first Realtors with Beth Wolff when she first opened her real estate company.

“I grew up in Beth Wolff Realtors’ offices, as I was in and out all the time watching my mother and Beth Wolff work. I also grew up with Beth Wolff’s son, Ed, who is president of the company,” said Cashion, a Realtor with Beth Wolff Realtors Real Living.

Prior to real estate, Cashion had a diverse career in the music industry across the region and retail, working for top names in both industries, where she also held executive titles.


In these positions, she traveled the country, handled million-dollar negotiations, built relationships with clients and vendors, managed stores, and more.

“A while back, I took a year off to care for my daughter after her surgery.

Dover Doins: Small cottage homes could help fill a big need – News – fosters.com

There are many discussions about these two words: perception and reality. They came to my mind while reading some reactions shared on social media, particularly about the proposal for 44 single-family “cottages” to be built in Dover. They are described as a cluster of “single family detached cottages” 384 square feet each, with kitchen/living room, bedroom and bath.

The developers are proposing these as addressing need for affordable housing locally.

Let’s talk about living in this modest space and the reaction by many members of the social media. Some yeah, some nay, and of course, as is the nature of the beast, many suggesting changes.

The first qualification popping up is of course, money. Here’s where our first thoughts of perception and reality come in. It is suggested that these homes will be rentals as opposed to purchased units.

The developers suggest $800 to $1,000 per month rent as something

Nevada Lifts Block on Rapid Covid-19 Tests in Nursing Homes

The state of Nevada withdrew a directive that blocked nursing homes from using federally provided rapid coronavirus testing equipment late on Friday, in response to an order from the Trump administration.

Nevada told nursing homes on Oct. 2 to stop using the rapid-testing equipment, citing concerns about false-positive results. The back and forth highlights a debate over the proper use of the tests after reports of some false positives.

In a letter to state officials, Adm. Brett Giroir, the Department of Health and Human Services official who has overseen U.S. testing efforts, said the state’s action to ban use of the tests was “inconsistent with and preempted by federal law and, as such, must cease immediately or appropriate action will be taken against those involved.” The letter was dated Oct. 8 and made public Friday.

Adm. Giroir defended the performance of the federally supplied equipment on a call Friday with
