Leah Chase, New Orleans’ matriarch of Creole cuisine, dead at 96

Leah Chase, New Orleans’ matriarch of Creole cuisine, who fed civil rights leaders, musicians and presidents in a career spanning seven decades, died Saturday (June 1) surrounded by family. She was 96.

Mrs. Chase, who possessed a beatific smile and a perpetually calm demeanor, presided over the kitchen at Dooky Chase’s Restaurant until well into her 10th decade, turning out specialties such as lima beans and shrimp over rice, shrimp Clemenceau and fried chicken that was judged the best in the city in a poll by | The Times-Picayune. Every Holy Thursday, hundreds showed up to enjoy gallons of her gumbo z’herbes, a dark, thick concoction that contains the last meat to be eaten before Good Friday.

In May 2016, Mrs. Chase received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the James Beard Foundation, which sponsors the country’s foremost food-related awards program for chefs, restaurateurs and writers. The foundation, which is named for a cookbook author and teacher who died in 1985, is, according to its website, designed to "celebrate, nurture and honor America’s diverse culinary heritage through programs that educate and inspire."

Mrs. Chase fed most of the civil rights movement’s leaders, as well as African-American entertainers who couldn’t eat in any other New Orleans restaurant during the Jim Crow years. President George W. Bush ate there, as did U.S. Sen. Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign, when Mrs. Chase stopped him from adding hot sauce to her gumbo.

Nothing seemed to slow her down. When she was hospitalized briefly in July 2015 to get a pacemaker, Mrs. Chase grumbled about the enforced idleness, saying, “I’ve got work to do.”

ASU president gets approval to drop 15 degree programs      :(

A request made by Albany State University to drop 15 degree programs was approved by the Board of Regents for the University Systems of Georgia.

The request came during the two-day meeting of the Board of Regents in Macon at Middle Georgia State University. The meeting wrapped up at 10:35 a.m. Wednesday.

According to the agenda, ASU's President, Art Dunning, requested to terminate the degree programs, effective Wednesday, in response to a comprehensive study of the programs that came out of deliberations during the consolidation with Darton State College.

The summary of the request read that dropping these programs would allow the administration to revise records, reflect what's currently offered in the programs, and allow the administration to align program inventory ahead of a SACA-COC (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges) review.

The request stated that students were not enrolled in the programs and that dropping the programs would not have an adverse impact on the faculty.

These were the programs recommended:

Associate of Applied Science in Psychiatric Technology
Associate of Science in Cancer Registry Management
Associate of Science in Cardiovascular Technology
Associate of Science in Human Services Technology
Associate of Science in Polysomnographic Technology
Bachelor of Arts with a major in Spanish Language and Literature
Bachelor of Arts with a major in Art
Bachelor of Arts with a major in Music
Bachelor of Music Education
Bachelor of Science with a major in Teaching Field – Health & Physical Education
Bachelor of Science with a major in Teaching Field – Science
Master of Education with a major in Teaching Field – Music
Master of Education with a major in Teaching Field – English
Master of Education with a major in Teaching Field – Mathematics
Master of Education with a major in Teaching Feld – Health & Physical Education

WALB will sit down with Interim Provost Kimberly Holmes Thursday to discuss what this change means and what students can expect moving forward.

Baltimore Removes Confederate Statues in Overnight Operation 

Statues dedicated to Confederate heroes were swiftly removed across Baltimore in the small hours of Wednesday morning, just days after violence broke out over the removal of a similar monument in neighboring Virginia.

Beginning soon after midnight on Wednesday, a crew, which included a large crane and a contingent of police officers, began making rounds of the city’s parks and public squares, tearing the monuments from their pedestals and carting them out of town.

By 3:30 a.m., three of the city’s four monuments had been removed. They included the Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson Monument, a double equestrian statue of the Confederate generals erected in 1948; the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument, erected in 1903; and the Roger B. Taney Monument, erected in 1887.
