A local interest feature I wrote on Sheriff’s Deputy Alicia Lopez and the Castleberry family. Lopez donated her kidney to 3-year-old Matthew, the son of a former sheriff’s department co-worker, after years of struggling with posterior urethral valves and other health conditions.
Cover feature I wrote on Baton Rouge blues musician Jonathon “Boogie” Long, who was named Guitar Center’s 2011 “King of the Blues.” Long is currently working on two new albums; the first is a blues album with southern rock edge and the second is more of a slow burn, a soul-baring country and folk passion project.
