Summer is coming to an end and kids are headed back to school.

Barr also joins the conversation. RSD Superintendent Dr. Patrick Dobard opens the year in a very different school system with encouraging words. Gene Meneray of the Arts Council invited all to Dirty Linen Night this Saturday in the French Quarters.
