Remembering Harold Myers By Errol Laborde
Harold Myers Jr. loved Carnival in New Orleans, and he celebrated it in a way unlike anyone else. He didn’t ride in a krewe and never reigned as a king, but he mastered capturing the spirit and integrity of the season. Myers’ moment was on the evening of Twelfth Night as the Christmas season segued into Carnival. He and his accomplices would gather their trench coats, float riders’ masks and a cowbell or two, plus the hand-printed signs they had made, and head to the streetcar barn. Once disguised, they would congregate near the spot where the Phunny Phorty Phellows were preparing for their annual Jan. 6 streetcar ride to announce the Carnival season’s arrival.- MARDIGRASPARADESCHEDULE.COM

Captain Protests Carnival Cuts In E-Mail To Council

"It is assumed that (Mayor Nagin) intends that my Queen and Court... stand on the street to greet the parade as it passes," the captain writes. "I can assure you that this will not happen. I, and my Officers, have already made other tentative arrangements for an alternative toasting stand for our Queen and Court... and it will be the city's loss to see an end to the tradition of the 'Gallier Hall Toast'." - WDSU.COM

The Original Krewe of Orpheus wants to sponsor a
St. Patrick’s Day parade in Mandeville

The Original Krewe of Orpheus wants to sponsor a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Mandeville as a way to raise funds for the carnival organization, but City Council members question how much an additional parade will cost the city. Lex Cairns, president for the Orpheus, told the council last week the purpose of the St. Patrick’s Day parade is to provide an additional revenue source for the krewe. However, council members questioned why they should approve a fund-raiser for the group when it will cost the city more than $22,000. Captain Brett Lowe said he feels by allowing companies an opportunity to advertise, this would encourage people to shop in Mandeville and the parade could actually benefit the city financially through an increase in sales tax revenue. - THESTTAMMANYNEWS.COM

Jefferson Parish Krewe turns to advertising for riders
Call it the thrill of the ride or a chance of a lifetime, but joining your favorite krewe and riding along during carnival season may no longer be as difficult or as exclusive as you may think. Mardi Gras expert Errol Laborde said the times are changing. “I think the image to a lot of people is it's a big, exclusive deal, but that's hardly the case,” Laborde said.Because of financial hardships, some krewes have feared 2010 could be a tough year to keep old members and attract new ones. Laborde said it's simply too soon to tell if that's the case; however, there are some unusual advertising techniques seeking the attention of interested riders. - WWLTV.COM

New study will gauge economic impact of Mardi Gras
A successful Mardi Gras is often determined by how heavy a pile of trash is left behind in the French Quarter following Fat Tuesday.

But the true economic impact of the citywide, multi-day free festival is difficult to gauge. And two Tulane University professors hope they can change that. NOLA.COM

About the DVD
The first Mardi Gras in America was celebrated in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. In 2007, it is still racially segregated. Filmmaker Margaret Brown (Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt), herself a daughter of Mobile, escorts us into the parallel hearts of the city s two carnivals. With unprecedented access, she traces the exotic world of secret mystic societies and centuries-old traditions and pageantry; diamond-encrusted crowns, voluminous, hand-sewn gowns, surreal masks and enormous paper mache floats. Against this opulent backdrop, she uncovers a tangled web of historical violence and power dynamics, elusive forces that keep this hallowed tradition organized along enduring color lines.
