40 Years of Service

BATON ROUGE, La.—In the culture and history of Louisiana, Napoleon and Louis Armstrong mixed with shrimpers and costume-clad Mardi Gras revelers to shape the state. The mighty Mississippi River and colorful politicians determined much of its course.

Several events are scheduled around Portland during the week of Jan. 16 to celebrate the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., from The Skanner's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast to a march and rally in his honor.

Portlanders to Build Home for Katrina Victims

Gov. Ted Kulongoski, Mayor Tom Potter, City Commissioner Erik Sten and the greater Portland community will come together Jan. 16 in the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr., when more then 60 Portland volunteers will be swinging hammers for a Louisiana family who has lost everything to Hurricane Katrina.
