An Associated Press story just reported that some at the Corps of Engineers New Orleans District have won awards for their efforts since the deadly levee failures in 2005.
A Corps news release said the team won the awards for the “hard work” and “professional excellence … to reduce risk for the people of the Greater New Orleans area.”
A producer with WWNO radio 89.9 requested my comment. The story will run during this afternoon’s All Things Considered, starting at 4, and the Morning Edition tomorrow (Thursday), starting at 6.
(The story will likely run after the national newscasts. It’s at the anchor’s discretion.)
