Dad is a finalist for 2007 IRE Award

My father co-wrote a series for the Times Pic back in March called Last Chance. The series discusses coastal erosion, how we are loosing our coast and how Louisiana can hope to save it and rebuild it (good read by the by). The series was announced today as one of the finalists for the 2007 Investigative Reporters and Editors Awards. It was a finalist for a medal (the highest IRE Award) in the medium sized newspaper category. Congrats.

Taking back the past

This weekend I decided to return to the past via my phone number. You see, right before Katrina Mandy and I decided to loan the brother in law, Adam, my cell phone. due to the storm I did not get back the phone until very recently. We decided to let him keep it indefinitely and added a third line to the plan for me with a Florida number. The plan was never to keep that number indefinitely, but only until we settled somewhere and then it would change area codes (I have been paying a florida and louisiana cell phone tax for over two years now). Well, since Adam got a new job with a work cell phone he didn’t need our extra line anymore. Since that was back in November and he passed out his new number to all who needed it and since its now March, I figured I could take back the line and return to my pre-Katrina number.Yes that’s right, my cell phone number is changing. If you need to call Mike, call his old cell phone number (the one from way back in the day) or Adam’s old number (the new orleans area code one). If you don’t know what that number is either email Mike at any of his addresses or use the contact form on this page to ping me for my new old number.Yay, new old numbers.
