Britney Spears will donate $1 for each ticket sold to her Las Vegas revue, "Britney: Piece of Me," to the Louisiana School Boards Association, a federation of all the public schools in the state. Spears, a multiple Grammy Award winner, is a native of Kentwood. Her stage show returns in September to Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and runs through the end of the year.

Turkey and the Wolf, Mason Hereford's Irish Channel sandwich joint, was named Best New Restaurant in America last week by the magazine Bon Appetit. "Were we prepared to call a quirky, nostalgic, counter service-only sandwich spot our No. 1 new restaurant in America? A place that serves what some might call, for better or for worse, stoner food?" editor Andrew Knowlton wrote. "We looked at each other and grinned. Yes, we were."

The New Orleans Department of Public Works (DPW) had only two of five working vacuum trucks last week to clear clogged catch basins. The other three trucks were out of service. That was the latest revelation in the ongoing tale of municipal incompetence following the Aug. 5 rainstorm that flooded much of the city. DPW head Mark Jernigan tendered his resignation shortly after the storm at Mayor Mitch Landrieu's request.
