Sunshine Bridge closure hurts sugar cane farmers
10/16/2018 10:43pm

SORRENTO - The closure of the Sunshine Bridge near Donaldsonville couldnt come at a worse time for sugar cane farmers on the east side of the Mississippi River. Harvest season just began and all the cane must be transported to sugar mills on the west side of the river.My harvesting costs are going to increase approximately three times, said sugar cane farmer Pete Dufresne.Friday the Sunshine Bridge was closed after it was struck by a passing barge carrying a crane. Repairs are expected to last months.Dufresnes 4,300 acres of fields are expected to produce 82,000-tons of sugar cane between now and December. What was an 18-mile trip to the sugar mill has turned into a 52-mile detour across the Veterans Bridge to the south in Gramercy.We had to hire extra drivers to keep up, he said.Sugar sells at a fixed price. Dufresne said hell have to absorb the added costs this year.Permalink Comments

Saturday was LSU's first top 2 win in Tiger Stadium since 1997
10/16/2018 5:55pm

BATON ROUGE - The atmosphere in Death Valley was nothing short of electric this past Saturday, as Tiger fans saw their team take down 2 Georgia, in a 36-16 rout.&nbspApart from being a signature win for LSU&nbspthis season, the victory is notable for another reason: Its the first time the Tigers have taken down a top two opponent at home in more than two decades.The last time it happened was 1997, in a 28-21 victory over 1 Florida. This also marks the highest ranked opponent&nbspthe Tigers have beaten since 2011s Game of the Century match-up against 2 Alabama. The then 1 ranked Tigers won in a nail biter, 9-6.&nbspFor most of the season, the Tigers have been underdogs, and Saturday was no different.Going into Saturdays game, the Bulldogs were favored by a touchdown. On top of that, LSU&nbspwas only projected to win six games on the whole season and started off ranked at the bottom of the top 25. Now, Coach Ed Orgeron, and the fifth ranked Tigers are rolling, setting up big match ups against 22 Mississippi State, and of course, the Alabama Crimson Tide.&nbspLSU in a good place going into final stretch of&nbspseason https://t.co/Cf31gfa5Sm pic.twitter.com/E3SZzZLEZQ&mdash LSU Football Report LSUReport October 16, 2018The key reasons for LSUs&nbspsuccess this season is, first and foremost, their defense, led by All-Americans,&nbspDevin&nbspWhite and Greedy Williams.The second is the stellar play by the offense and quarterback, Joe Burrow. One of the biggest question coming into the season was, can the Tigers keep up offensively With great performances against good defenses such as Miami, Auburn, and Georgia, the offense has shown they can hang with the best of them.And last but certainly not least, the play of place kicker, Cole Tracy. Having a reliable kicker that can score points, make clutch, game winning kicks, like what happened against Auburn, is something the Tigers have been missing in recent years.&nbspThis week, Coach O was awarded the Dodd&nbspCoach of the Week trophy, and both&nbspDevin&nbspWhite and Cole Tracy earned SEC Player of the Week honors.The 2018&nbspLSU&nbspTigers look like they now have an all-around balanced team. And even though it is still too early to call, the Tigers may have found that championship recipe.&nbspPermalink Comments
