Russel Honoré, retired U.S. Army Lieutenant General, will speak at the Baton Rouge Press Club on July 15. Honoré will discuss the Bayou Corne sinkhole in Assumption Parish and the possible need for greater federal and state oversight of commercial operations that potentially affect the lives and safety of Louisiana citizens.
Press Club meets on Mondays at De La Ronde Hall, which is located at 320 Third St. in downtown Baton Rouge. Lunch, which is served at 11:30 a.m., is $12 for members and $15 for nonmembers. The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and the news media are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
