Dan Schneider Outlines Plan to start "A People's Lobby" to fight Addiction at Kiwanis Club Meeting

In February of 2020, Netflix released The Pharmacist, a four-episode documentary that recounted the incredible story of St. Bernard pharmacist Dan Schneider, whose son (Danny Jr.) was murdered while attempting to buy crack cocaine in 1999 in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward. When the New Orleans police were unable to handle the case, a grief-stricken Schneider doggedly investigated the murder himself, eventually securing a conviction no one thought possible. From there, he fought against the over prescribing of OxyContin in St. Bernard Parish and surrounding area, and, ultimately, began to challenge big pharmaceutical corporations for their role in the opioid epidemic that has festered in the United States for decades.

The $200 was to have the schools purchase books for the neediest so they would have the ability to select and buy a book. Presenting the check is Charlene Abadie, member of the St. Bernard Kiwanis Club. Pictured, from left: Tiffany Glapion (Principal), Charlene Abadie (Kiwanian) and Kristi Nunez (Librarian).

St. Bernard Schools Raise Money for Communities Impacted by Hurricane Laura

The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season has been incredibly active and devastating. While St. Bernard has been lucky so far this year, with every named storm skirting around the edges of the parish, residents in the southern end of St. Bernard have seen storm surge cause significant flooding even when the storms have made landfall hundreds of miles away. Other communities have not been so lucky. From Texas to Florida, communities along the Gulf of Mexico have been battered by storm after storm with seemingly no end in sight.
