The New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board successfully dragged the car out of the Lafitte canal around 2:45 p.m. Thursday.As the crane hoisted the vehicle up near where the Lafitte Greenway meets North Jefferson Davis Parkway, Mardi Gras beads could be seen dangling out from underneath the trunk lid, with the Mazda 626 labelstill plainly legible on it.Officials arent sure how long the car was in there, but S&WB director Ghassan Korban suspects it could have been in there up to a dozen years. The brake tag reportedly had a visible expiration date of 2007, but theres no telling if the tag was current or expired on the day the car went into the canal.And its out pic.twitter.com/03drNThNAM SWB New Orleans SWBNewOrleans August 22, 2019 Sewerage & Water Board workers found the car earlier this week while doing a video inspection of the Lafitte Canal. The canal is exposed as it runs from N. Broad to N. Jeff. Davis, then goes underground as it makes its way toward Drainage Pumping Station 7 in City Park at the Orleans Ave. Canal. The inspection came as a result of the July 10 flood, caused by a brief but intense downpour that morning. The Lafitte Canal experienced minor overtopping leading to the Sewerage and Water Boards decision to look for unseen issues.Sewerage and Water Board says the underground inspection of Lafitte Canal will continue all the way through to the pumping station at a cost of over $100,000.

Regardless of development, locally heavy rains are possible over portions of the southern Florida peninsula during the next day or two.

Last day of Saints training camp all about defense

The Saints held their final practice of training camp today, but it doesnt mean the players are done. The team will adjust to a different schedule now as they get into regular season mode after they play the New YorkJets in preseason game number threeon Saturday.There were eight players who missed todays workout:RB Latavius MurrayWR Simmie CobbsG Marshall NewhouseLB Alex AnzaloneLB Craig RobertsonCB/RS Marcus SherelsDB Saquan HamptonDE Mario EdwardsDefense feeling feistyBefore players head outside for practice, they warm-up inside their indoor facility and you could tell that the defense was ready to close out training camp with a bang. They were a lot more engaged and vocal cheering one another on along with some friendly trash talk. The offense didnt have the same juice as there were a number of dropped passes. Both trends continued when they team left the air-conditioning for the bright, sun filled sky in front of fans.Corners Marshon Lattimore and PJ Williams both broke up passes during red zone drills while Ken Crawley nearly came up with an interception.The team also worked on hurry-up situations. Drew Brees drove the offensive down to the 10-yard line and had 1st and goal with: 16 ticks left on the clock. More than enough time for No. 9 to cap things off with a TD. But instead, there were fourstraight incompletions the last one a PBU by Lattimore vs. Michael Thomas.Never give the offense a 2nd chanceThe second team offense did manage to get some payback to close things out. Teddy Bridgewater lofted a pass into the right corner of the end zone that was almost picked off by rookie linebackerKaden Elliss. Bridgewater took advantage of the second opportunity, finding receiverAustin Carr for the score with one second left on the clock.Ups & downs for DeonteThe punt return job still remains a big question for the Black & Gold. Marcus Sherels was believed to be the guy, but the veteran hasnt been at practice since the preseason opener. That opened the door for undrafted rookie Deonte Harris, who has gained 140 yards on just five kickoff returns and 55 yards on six punt returns. He did have a mistake last game though as he misjudge a punt and let it bounce in front of him instead if fielding it.That bothered me, Coach Sean Payton said after the win against the Chargers. Its a little bit of you dont know what youre going to get, yet you see some good signs.Harris muffed punt today at practice that will bother Coach as well. The 5-foot-6, 170-pound receiverslammed the ball to the ground frustration after the play. Its moments like that which keep the door open for Sherels since he is a proven veteran. We just dont know how hurt he is right now. Categories: Sports NFL Local News Saints Tags: New Orleans Saints NFL Marshon Lattimore Deonte Harris Teddy Bridgewater Austin Carr Comments

Its just that theyre too anxious.The poll shows only 30 percent of millennials are engaged at work -- the other 70 percent are not engaged -- or have totally checked out. More than 60 percent of them are looking for new jobs.UNO professor of business and finance, Mark Rosa, says its not that millennials dont want to be involved. Its just that theyre too anxious.Theyre looking to be engaged. And, I think they have a notion, very idealistically, about what work needs to be, or they want to make a difference and they want to contribute.He says millennials want to feel like more than just a cog in the wheel.But, as youre a beginning employee, or younger in your career, your work might not be the most challenging. You might be doing things to help out someone obviously more senior in experience than you.I think thats where somebody would say, Well, gee, I went to school. I was all motivated. And,what Im doing now has me less motivated., says Rosa. Its like, Gee, I dont feel like Im a big boy or big girl. I feel like Im doing support work.And thats where some of those comments come. Its like Well, maybe I need to go some place else. They dont give it enough time. Not in the first six months are you going to be the manager of a department or the head of a portfolio or doing something that really needs more experience.But, Rosa says, the millennials tend to feel under-challenged and are over-anxious for advancement. The Gallup poll found more than 60 percent of currently employed millennials are looking for new jobs.According to Gallup, not only are 60 percent of millennials open to another job opportunity, a majority of them are ready and willing to up and leave their current employer if another opportunity comes along.Rosa says its a rather uncomfortable thought that more than half of millennials dont see a solid future with their current companies.
