St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office deputies were treated to lunch and dinner on Saturday, Oct.
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.
In its ongoing efforts to share the good things happening in the school system, each month St. Bernard Schools present Super News at its general board meeting. Produced by the district’s Parish Education Network, PEN-Tv, Super News is a quick recap of some of the district’s monthly highlights including awards, programs, and special events.
It was a different venue but the same time-honored traditions that were celebrated when Chalmette High School hosted its annual Ring Day for the Class of 2021.
The Kiwanis Club of St. Bernard-Arabi presented a check to Joseph Davies Elementary for their annual Book Fair. 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).
The Kiwanis Club of St. Bernard-Arabi is just starting to contact parish schools in this COVID environment. Sam Catalanotto of Kiwanis asked Elizabeth Winslow, Principal of Chalmette Elementary, of the school’s needs. Ms. Winslow said donations of back to school supplies are greatly needed.
At the October 6 St. Bernard Parish Council Meeting, an ordinance that would enable Parish President Guy McInnis and his administration to accept the donation of property right beside the Meraux Valero Refinery passed unanimously.
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.
This November, voters will be tasked with making important decisions as they cast their ballots. On the local front, the citizens in St. Bernard Parish must answer the critical question: which judicial candidate possesses the experience, values, and knowledge of the law to best serve our residents?
