KSLA News 12 Editorial: July 22, 2013-Shreveport Common

There was good news this week about Shreveport Common.

This is a nine block area near Downtown that is slowly but surely being reclaimed and redeveloped through the Shreveport Regional Arts Council.

The good news is a $150,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

How will the money be used?

The idea is to have special events from art exhibits to live music to a fresh food market. Events that will attract a cross section of people in the community to experience first hand this area of town that is being transformed.

There is already a lot taking place in this area. Renovations are underway at the Municipal Auditorium. The near-by Historic Oakland Cemetery is being preserved and the Old Central Fire Station has already been saved and turned into a headquarters for the arts.

Can't wait to see what happens next.

I'm James Smith.

    Driving impaired is not just irresponsible, it's selfish. And today with cell phones and Uber, it is too easy to find another way. Drunken driving also just isn't worth the risk to you, your passengers or others on the road. Just don't do it.
