For Struggling Renters in New Orleans, Hope May Be Coming a Bit Late 13.6.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Twenty-four-year old Stuart Marino is a finance major at University of New Orleans with $8,000 in student loan debt and 33 credit hours until graduation. But the alternative to obtaining that diploma is worse. As statistics show, those not having a college degree are much more likely to remain poor. Marino was not fortunate enough to have been born a decade earlier. Then, tuition at UNO was half of what it is now. During Republican Governor Bobby Jindal's term, from 2007 to 2015, tuition at Louisiana public colleges skyrocketed due to massive budget cuts. Despite having a job, Marino says he spends more than 30 percent of his income on rent and utilities. He would not be able to cover the cost of a $1,000 medical emergency. Indeed, he has delayed getting his car fixed, something vital to reaching his job and school. "Fixing my car would be something I would be doing with that $700," he said, referring to the monthly rent. Marino's story personifies what many people here and nationwide have experienced ...

Duke Energy is facing serious regulatory battles in its home state of North Carolina, with climate-action groups doggedly trying to block the company's planned fracked gas plant in Asheville and the state's environmental agency recently  deciding -- at least temporarily -- that all of the company's coal ash impoundments must be excavated and the waste moved to safer dry storage. But the power giant is fighting back with the help of friends in high places. On the gas plant front, Duke Energy earlier this month asked the NC Utilities Commission to order NC WARN and The Climate Times to post a $50 million bond to continue their appeal of the commission's approval of the company's proposed $1 billion gas plant on the site of a shuttered coal plant near Asheville, citing a never-before-used provision of a 1963 state law allowing the utility to seek a bond from critics challenging a power plant approval. Though the bond is supposed to offset costs stemming from a delay in starting construction, Duke Energy has ...
