Zydeco stomp. The area is now abuzz with politics.
Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, who promised to continue his campaign despite failing to score a victory Tuesday, will visit Baton Rouge and possibly New Orleans this week.
He has made oil production a centerpiece of his campaign, pledging to return gas prices to $2.50 a gallon.
Mitt Romney will hold a fundraiser in Shreveport next week in the run-up to Louisiana’s Republican primary on March 24, said Roger Villere, chairman of the Louisiana GOP.
Following Mississippi’s and Alabama, voting yesterday, Louisiana is the next Southern state with red delegates to grab.
“Everybody needs every delegate they can get,” said Villere, who has been helping to coordinate the events. “This will be a good place for someone to break ahead or for someone to make a stand.”
The candidates’ descent into Louisiana surprised many residents, who are used to being overlooked during primary season.
“Most of the candidates I want to vote for don’t make it down here,” said Candy Bienvenu, 57, a retiree. “They need to come down and know what’s important to people here.”

But candidates better be genuine, she said. Romney’s faux Southern drawl and professed love of grits at a rally in Mississippi won’t work in Louisiana, she said: “It better be genuine, because we could tel...

SEC rivals, was perfect on a 23-yarder with 5:00 left in the first quarter.
It didn’t sound like an LSU home game at the Superdome, about 80 miles from its Baton Rouge campus. The dome was deafening on almost every play with a crowd that was much closer to 50-50 than partisan.
The racket coming from the crimson-clad Alabama fans might have even contributed to a mishandled snap by Jefferson on the first LSU series.
More than a few people questioned whether Oklahoma State should have been given Alabama’s spot in the BCS championship game, but the Tide won over the voters and earned a rematch with the Tigers.

Parkway near Houston, Miss.
Blount of Calhoun County was convicted of manslaughter in April 2010, but authorities said he fled house arrest to avoid sentencing. He was captured in October 2010 in Baton Rouge, La.
Legal wrangling in the case added more delays to the sentencing.
Blount's attorney was out of the office and did not immediately respond to a call Thursday.
U.S. District Judge Allen Pepper sentenced Blount during a hearing in federal court in Greenville. The Natchez Trace Parkway is part of the National Parks system so Hageman's death was prosecuted in federal court.
The prison sentence will be followed by five years on supervised release.
The U.S. Attorney's office said in a news release that the time will begin after Blount finishes serving a sentence for another conviction.
Blount was on supervised release at the time of Hageman's death for a drug conviction in Texas. He was released from federal prison in Texas in Novembe...

Southern communities also suffered significant growth in extremely poor populations, with El Paso, Baton Rouge, La., and Jackson, Miss. among the metro areas with the sharpest increases.
The study reinforces how poverty has emerged as a force in suburban communities, a trend that has been underway for more than a decade, yet has accelerated in recent years as housing prices have plummeted, and as joblessness has reached previously healthier areas.
The number of poor people living in areas of extreme poverty in the suburbs increased by 41 percent between 2000 and the latter years of the decade, as compared to 17 percent growth in cities during that same timeframe, according to the study. Still, poor people living in concentrated poverty inside cities still vastly outnumbered those in suburbs.
Though the northeast saw less of an increase than other areas of the country, New Haven -- best known as the home of Yale University -- stands out as one of the nation's fastest-growing centers of concentrated poverty. By the end of the decade, nearly one in four poor people living in the city was in a community with 40 percent or greater rates of poverty.
Newton has seen it unfold up close.
Two years ago, he was earning $12-an-hour driving people with developmental disabilities to medical appointments. But that job was in the suburbs. When his car broke down, he lacked the money to fix it, forcing him to rely on infrequent public bus service to get to work. He quit that job to take a position at the hotel. It paid only $10 an hour, but it was close to his apartment, making it possible for him to accrue more hours because he was able to work on short notice.
But the hotel was itself struggling. For weeks at a time, management told him not to bother coming in.
"There were no business meetings," Newton said, "no people coming into the hotel."
When he lost that job six weeks ago, he had no savings to fall back on, forcing him to borrow from friends just to make the rent on his subsidized apartment.
He has been looking for work day after day, but has come up empty, frustrated that all the better paying jobs -- at medical offices, where his resume shows experience -- seem to be out in the suburbs. Employers seem reluctant to take a chance on a guy who lives in the city, with questionably reliable transportation.
Newton is a single, young African-American man living in a time in which the unemployment rate among single African-American men 25 years and older is 21 percent.
He went to college for a couple of years, and now he is searching for a way to resume his studies, researching possible sources of grant money. But Newton is also thinking seriously about a job in the only industry that seems to be holding stea...

Sept. 28 re-arraignment date for Titus.
Titus is accused of helping Dominick Fazzio bilk $1.2 million from Garner Services, a Houston construction management firm with offices in Baton Rouge.
Fazzio, 58, of Slidell, allegedly used two construction firms he owns to send seven fraudulent invoices to Garner Services from June 2008 through March, according to Fazzio's 19-count indictment.
With Titus serving as its chief operating officer, Garner Services paid the bills despite receiving no goods or services, according to the indictment, which alleges Fazzio kept some of the money and funneled the rest to Titus.
Titus is either a sibling or a cousin of Fazzio's wife, Rebecca Titus Fazzio, according to their grandmother's obituary.
Titus was charged with a single count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud in a June 29 bill of information.
When a defendant is charged in a bill of information rather than a grand jury indictment, it typically indicates a plea dea...
