What's all that activity on lake Ponchartrain?
Crossing the causeway you'll see lots of boats and bardges together. That's a project that is  building an underground pipeline from Norco to Mississippi that would cross Lake Pontchartrain and cut through St. Tammany Parish  The $220 million Parkway Pipeline project is laying a 16-inch line to carry gasoline and diesel from the Valero St. Charles Refinery 141 miles to Collins, Miss., where it will tie into other distribution pipelines,

The pipeline will skirt the far eastern edge of the city near Fontainebleau State Park and Pelican Park, it will travel only 0.3 miles through the city limits, affecting a single property owner.
Company officials said the project would affect around nine or 10 acres of wetlands in St. Tammany Parish and  will not disrupt any archeological sites.
The pipeline will run 39.21 miles through St. Tammany Parish and will generate about $2 million in parish property taxes in the first year of its operation, It will have an initial capacity of 110,000 barrels per day, with the ability to expand to 220,000 barrels per day.
The pipeline will follow the levee in the Bonnet Carre Spillway and run along an existing pipeline corridor under Lake Pontchartrain. The pipe will be a minimum of four feet beneath the lake bottom. Neither Carlton Dufrechou, general manager of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, nor John Lopez, executive director of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation voiced any significant environmental concerns about the pipeline.

Trouble at LSU agin...
_ LSU has dismissed Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu from its football program for violating school and team rules.

The junior defensive back nicknamed Honey Badger was a surprising Heisman Trophy candidate last season as the Tigers won the Southeastern Conference championship and reached the BCS title game. LSU lost the championship 21-0 to Alabama.

At a news conference Friday, coach Les Miles would not specify the reason Mathieu was kicked off the team

Country music power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are heading to Las Vegas.
They will be doing a 10-weekend run of shows at The Venetian starting Dec. 7. The couple planned to announce the news Tuesday during a press conference at the hotel.
The show is called ``Soul2Soul,'' named after their hugely successful co-headlining tours in 2000 and 2006. The Vegas shows will mark the first time in six years that McGraw and Hill have performed a full concert together in the United States.
Pre-sale tickets go on sale Wednesday and open to the general public Monday.
They have sold more than 70 million albums and charted more than 40 No. 1 hits between them.

Could be in the Gulf next week
Forecasters say a tropical depression is speeding toward a chain of small, popular vacation islands in the Caribbean Sea.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Thursday the system formed in the Atlantic Ocean and is headed west toward the Caribbean. Tropical storm watches are in effect for the islands of Barbados, Dominica and St. Lucia.
The depression's maximum sustained winds are at 35 mph (55 kph) and the storm is moving to the west at 21 mph (34 kph).
Forecasters say the storm is expected to strengthen. Its general track takes it toward Jamaica, though forecasters warn that the path of a tropical system can be unpredictable.
