Saying it can no longer operate in the mold-infested Westwego Arts Center, the West Bank Arts Guild has pulled out of the city-owned building in the heart of the Sala Avenue historic district, an officer in the group told the Westwego City Council on Monday. “It’s now full of mold,” said Josie Murphy, the guild’s treasurer and former president.
The building’s roof was damaged during Hurricane Isaac a year ago, Westwego Mayor Johnny Shaddinger said. The guild invested $15,000 to $20,000 of its own money in keeping the building open, but to no avail, Murphy said.
The city has allowed the guild to use the building at 401 Sala Ave. as a gallery and to host art workshops, she said. “The city has not paid one bill,” Murphy told the council. “And I think the council needs to know that, as well as the residents of Westwego.”
Shaddinger said an estimated $200,000 is needed to repair the building. But he said the city’s insurance policy provided only $30,000 for storm-related work.
The city, meanwhile has a request for $250,000 for various Sala Avenue infrastructure improvements through the state Bond Commission, which is scheduled to meet this week, Shaddinger said. He indicated that bonds could be the source of repair money. The mayor said the guild is welcome to return to the Westwego Arts Center “once the building is repaired.”
He said a previous contractor who worked on the building did substandard work. That led Councilman Glenn Green to say the city needs to hold contractors’ feet to the fire when they do “shoddy” work for the city.
“This is our city,” Green said. “This is our money. I don’t care how much money we get from the state. We’ve got to make an example out of somebody or they’re going to continue to do that.”
Shaddinger said the city also will seek $350,000 through the state Bond Commission to repair storm-related damage at the city’s Performing Arts Center, also on Sala Avenue. The city’s deductible to make such repairs is $250,000, Shaddinger said. The city put aside about $62,000 in its present budget toward meeting that deductible.
In other action, the City Council:

The government’s gay marriage Bill is expected to become law by the end of this week, after the legislation cleared the House of Lords on Monday afternoon.
Peers gave the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill its third reading without a formal vote after approving an amendment that would see ministers examine the pension arrangements for gay couples.
The legislation will now return to the Commons on Tuesday evening where it is expected to be rubber stamped by MPs and sent to the Queen for Royal Assent by Thursday at the latest.
The government expects the first gay weddings to be able to take place in Summer 2014 following the completion of implementation work.
Speaking to a jubilant pro-gay marriage rally opposite parliament, Nick Clegg thanked campaigners for “keeping politicians feet to the fire” to ensure the Bill was not derailed by opponents.
“Once what was felt, or considered, to be a radical will soon be the law of the land,” he said. “People will look back on it and think, ‘what on Earth was the fuss all about’.”

“It should be entirely unremarkable and completely unusual that people who want to express their love to each other want to commemorate that love and want to celebrate that love regardless of who they are regardless of their gender regardless of their sexuality should be abel to do so on equal footing.”
Stonewall chief executive Ben Summerskill said: ‘It’s impossible to express how much joy this historic step will bring to tens of thousands of gay people and their families and friends. The Bill’s progress through parliament shows that, at last, the majority of politicians in both Houses understand the public’s support for equality – though it’s also reminded us that gay people still have powerful opponents.”
The Bill had a turbulent time in both the Commons and the Lords – with a significant number of MPs and peers voicing fierce opposition.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota House stood ready to vote to make the state the 12th to legalize gay marriage Thursday, as rallies planned for and against the measure prompted heightened security at the Capitol.
House Democratic leaders and supporters of the measure expressed confidence they had sufficient votes to pass the measure and appealed to Republicans to join in its passage. If successful, the state Senate would take up the legislation on Monday, paving the way for Gov. Mark Dayton to sign it next week.
Debate in the House was due to start at midday.
Just last fall Minnesota voters were deciding on a constitutional amendment to fortify a gay marriage ban. The amendment failed and the campaign made a swift 180-degree turn, helped along by a Democratic takeover of the Legislature.
Thousands of people were expected at the Capitol for the historic vote. Orange-shirted backers of gay marriage started arriving several hours before the debate.
Gay marriage opponents said they expected more than 1,000 people who share their views to rally at the Capitol. The Rev. Steve Goold of New Hope Church led followers in a morning prayer before they set out to lobby lawmakers. He told them they had the power to change minds, but urged them to be respectful.
“Do not shout and boo. Pray,” Goold said.
Some opponents held bright pink signs that said “Vote no.”
Minnesota lawmakers were advised that security would be stepped up, with 30 to 40 additional security officers and restricted access to gallery viewing space and other areas of the building. State troopers posted squad cars near several entrances, and signs were posted warning that admittance to the building would be denied once it reached an unspecified capacity.
“It all has to do with the size and tenor of the crowd. If we have a volatile situation we’re not going to throw more fuel on the fire,” said State Patrol Maj. Bob Myerson, who leads the Capitol security detail. “As far as anyone’s recollection, we’re looking at potentially the largest crowd anyone can remember assembled inside the Capitol.”

BILIN, West Bank (AP) This wasn’t your typical Oscar viewing party.
In the West Bank village whose struggle to regain land taken by Israel was portrayed in an Oscar-nominated documentary, activists huddled around a campfire before dawn Monday to watch the ceremony.
For added symbolism, they pinned the screen to a tent just meters (yards) away from Israel’s West Bank separation barrier, which cut off the village of Bilin from much of its land.
Some smoked water pipes, huddled in sleeping bags or warmed their hands over the fire as actors in gowns and tuxedos performed on a stage half-way around the world.
The documentary, “5 Broken Cameras,” did not win, and some said they were disappointed. But protest organizer Abdullah Abu Rahma says the Oscar nomination gave Bilin’s struggle a big push.
The village has been the scene of weekly protests against the barrier, which were documented in the film. Palestinians charge that the barrier, which cuts into the West Bank, is a land grab. Israel says it’s needed to keep Palestinian attackers out.

Firefighters battled a 2-alarm fire on the West Bank Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
A spokeswoman for the New Orleans Fire Department said the fire broke out in a multi-story dwelling in the 4200 block of Maple Leaf Drive shortly before 2 p.m. The fire was placed under control a little under an hour later, about 2:50 p.m., the department said.
Witnesses on the scene said that the flames engulfed the entire top portion of an apartment building and that several units were heavily damaged.

Anti-tank missile from Gaza hits IDF jeep on border with Israel
Gaza sources claim militants hit military vehicle patrolling security fence near Karni crossing. Heavy fire exchange follows; Strip's medical source report of 3 Palestinians dead, 20 injured. A similar incident on noon Thursday, which saw an IDF force come under fire near the border fence, ended with no casualties – Palestinian sources reported Saturday that Gazans fired an anti-tank missile at an IDF vehicle patrolling the Gaza security fence near Karni crossing. According to Gaza sources, the vehicle was hit and caught fire. The Palestinians said that the source of the fire was located east of the Gaza Strip neighborhoods of Zeitun and Sajaiya. Gaza sources said that a heavy fire exchange followed, with the IDF using tanks and machine-guns. IAF helicopters were reportedly flying over the Strip's south and eastern areas, as well. Gaza medical sources reported of two fatalities and at least 20 casualties, as a result of the IDF's shelling. The causalities were taken to the Shifa Hospital. Hamas security forces have reportedly cleared all posts in the vicinity of the scene fearing an imminent Israeli strike. A similar incident on noon Thursday, which saw an IDF force come under fire near the border fence, ended with no casualties. In the early hours of Thursday morning, an IDF soldier was lightly wounded in a blast that took place in a terrorist tunnel near the border fence on Thursday.

Five firefighters were injured after falling through the floor of a burning West Bank apartment complex Sunday morning. The injuries are not believed to be serious.
The New Orleans Fire Department received a 911 call from a resident reporting a fire at the Audubon Pointe Apartments, 4547 Maple Leaf Dr.
According to an NOFD report, the first company arrived on the scene at 7:25 a.m., finding flames and heavy dark smoke coming from the windows of a first-floor unit of the two-story, 12-unit apartment building.
Firefighters forced their way in through the front door of the burning unit to search for any occupants but it was empty. One of the building managers told firefighters that there was only one occupied unit and that the rest of the structure was undergoing renovation.
While searching the second floor of the building, five firefighters fell through the floors of two separate units. Two of firefighters were transported to an area hospital with varying degrees of back, ankle and knee pain. The full extent of the injuries is unknown but none are believed to warrant extended medical attention. The three other firefighters remained on duty.
Nineteen NOFD units carrying 58 fire personnel were used to bring the blaze under control at 8:29 a.m. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
