Although Jefferson Parish is only in the early stages of creating a new charter school, officials at the International School of Louisiana reaffirmed their intent Wednesday to apply for a language-immersion school there for the 2012-13 school year.
In a meeting earlier this month, the Jefferson Parish board voted to accept a state grant to begin developing a process to review charter applications, said ISL development director Pam Stewart. Board member Mark Jacobs has been advocating for a language-immersion school similar to ISL for Jefferson Parish, and although discussions at that meeting about the state grant and about language-immersion became intertwined, the board’s vote did not have anything to do with the creation of any new schools.
Lusher Charter School intensified its cries for basic building renovations and Sophie B. Wright supporters made a full-court press for a gym Tuesday night at the second town-hall meeting Uptown on the allocation of federal money for New Orleans schools.
As in previous meetings around the city, state and local school officials divided the audience of about 200 people at Dryades YMCA into three groups for free-ranging public-comment session. Each of those three groups Tuesday night was dominated by a vocal contingent of Lusher teachers, parents and administrators who insisted that their school’s buildings need critical repairs to the roofs, windows and air-conditioning systems that are ignored by the current master plan.

Slowly, craft beer has carved out a noticeable niche in an industry once dominated by “big box” beer: the Bud, Miller and Coors that for the longest time ran the beer game. Then came a shift. Like all industries, there’s an evolution that must take place, a course that is followed whereby ideas are born, tried, and either die away or begin to thrive. It’s the evolution of business. Successful, stable businesses really only remain successful and stable for so long, until competition forces their improvement or sounds their death knell. (OK, maybe it isn’t that dramatic.)
So it went with beer. Locally, over 20 years ago Abita Brewing tested the waters of craft, and look where they are today. Other communities around the country have similar stories. Today, craft is just hitting its stride, with new breweries popping up in an unprecedented fashion. From a beer lover’s point of view, it’s nothing short of amazing. Locally, in the last few years we’ve seen the rise of Lazy Magnolia, Heiner Brau, NOLA, Bayou Teche, and Covington brews. The latest is Tin Roof. Maybe you’ve heard of it. And if you haven’t, now you will.
Despite requests from several neighborhoods for more time to become familiar with the Isidore Newman School’s proposed land-use changes, the City Planning Commission gave the school’s plans a favorable recommendation Tuesday to the City Council with very little discussion.
The school plans to build an early-childhood education center on Loyola Avenue by combining two houses on the street with a third home to be moved from elsewhere on campus, officials have said. Newman is also seeking official “school use” designation for several other buildings it owns, including the old Autopaint building on Danneel Street currently used for storage and the proposed headmaster’s house at 1803 Jefferson.

State and local school officials return Uptown this week to continue their listening tour about plans for school buildings across New Orleans with a Tuesday evening meeting focused on schools in Uptown, the Garden District and Central City.
Discussion at previous meetings has centered on finding a balance between supporting the needs of existing, high-performing schools and rebuilding schools in neighborhoods that have gone without a campus for years.In School Board District 5, the plans largely call for renovations, with Sophie B. Wright and Samuel J. Green scheduled for federal money, but the Fortier High School building used by Lusher Charter School or Benjamin Franklin Elementary in need of repairs without a funding stream identified.
The Isidore Newman School’s plan to build an early-childhood center on Loyola Street and rezone several other buildings it owns for general school use will be heard by the City Planning Commission in a meeting set for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday (July 26).
A group of teenagers fleeing police in an allegedly stolen SUV with a pistol in the back abandoned their vehicle at the edge of the Isidore Newman School campus in Uptown New Orleans, and two were caught moments later hiding in a Newman warehouse, authorities said.
Telly Hankton, 35, is accused of chasing Darnell Stewart down South Claiborne Avenue, pistol-whipping him and shooting him in the face, then while on bail in 2009 killing an accomplice of Stewart on Terpsichore — all in revenge for the murder of Hankton’s cousin, authorities say. Hankton and his cousin “controlled most of the dope and hits in the Uptown area and in jail,” according to a police report quoted in the Times-Picayune.
