Scott Walker

is running the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon March 4 to benefit the Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association. Walker is running in memory of Tripp Roth, the Northshore child who died from the rare genetic skin disease in January. Walker, an anchor at WDSU-TV, began the fundraiser with the goal of raising $5,000 — but he has raised more than $38,000 in less than two months' time.

Alex and Maribeth del Castillo

were the only New Orleanians honored by Smithsonian magazine in its recent roundup of the "20 Best Food Trucks in America." The couple bought a truck in 2009 and named it Taceaux Loceaux, serving creative tacos with ingredients such as Korean-style barbecue and smoked brisket. Since then, their truck has become a familiar fixture around town.

The St. Bernard Sheriff's Office

has been using a photo of WVUE-TV investigative reporter Lee Zurik as target practice, the station reported this week. Sheriff Jack Stephens apologized to Zurik but added it wasn't against the law, nor did it violate "the canon of ethics." Stephens misses the point: It was patently unprofessional and unbecoming of an office that is sworn to protect citizens.
