Volunteers needed to lend hand

Year 2016 marks the 100th birthday of the National Park Service and the 50th birthday of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The NHPA is a cornerstone of American historic preservation. It was created in the belief that too many important historic places were being lost to post-World War II development and construction, and that the federal government could (and should) play an important role in protecting places that embody the United States’ cultural heritage.

State Sen. Bodi  White, R-Central, is making a strong approach from the right in his bid to become the next mayor-president of Baton Rouge. The East Baton Rouge Parish Republican Party has endorsed his candidacy and White has raised more than $400,000 to lead the money side of the race.
