New Orleans City Hall To Close Early For Saints Game

New Orleans City Hall will close at 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 30, in advance of the evening Saints game in the Superdome.

The city says the early closing time is due to an expected increase in traffic that will impact and limit access to city hall for residents. City hall is scheduled to resume normal business hours on Tuesday, Oct. 1.

The Monday Night Football game against the Miami Dolphins (3-0) is scheduled to kick off at 7:40 p.m.

Marketplace: Can Dog Food Made From Nutria Help Louisiana's Wetlands?

Lead in text: 
Marketplace reporter Sam Harnett takes a look at Louisiana's voracious unoffical mascot: the nutria. Trappers who put a significant dent in nutria populations are retiring, and some are looking for new solutions to help stem the tide of the ecologically-destructive beasties.
Large rodents called nutria damage thousands of acres of coastal wetlands in Louisiana each year. But trappers are becoming a dying breed.

New Orleans Saints Overcome First Half Woes In 31-7 Win Over Arizona Cardinals

The New Orleans Saints are still undefeated, after their 31-7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday at home in the Superdome.

The Arizona Cardinals spent five minutes and forty-seven seconds marching down the field on the first possession of the game.

It was the only time they would score.

In a dramatic turnaround from last season, it was the Saints young defense who stood up to make the big plays, keeping Arizona off the field and giving quarterback Drew Brees and company the space to work.
