Daily Bread for 8.29.13

Good morning.

We’ll have a sunny Thursday with a high of eighty-five and calm winds.

Those wishing to hear the School Board meeting of Monday, August 26th (during which the Board hired a new principal for the middle school, among other items) can do so via Whitewater Community Television. The program airs again today at Noon on cable, and is also available anytime on the Web at Vimeo. Alan Luckett of Whitewater Community Television has made available the audio that Chris Welch of the Daily Union kindly supplied. Many thanks to both for their efforts.

On this day in 2005, Hurricane Katrina hits the Gulf Coast:

Hurricane Katrina makes landfall near New Orleans, Louisiana, as a Category 4 hurricane on this day in 2005. Despite being only the third most powerful storm of the 2005 hurricane season, Katrina was the worst natural disaster in the history of the United States. After briefly coming ashore in southern Florida on August 25 as a Category 1 hurricane, Katrina gained strength before slamming into the Gulf Coast on August 29. In addition to bringing devastation to the New Orleans area, the hurricane caused damage along the coasts of Mississippi and Alabama, as well as other parts of Louisiana….

The storm also set off 36 tornadoes in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, resulting in one death.

For the week of August 26 to 30, Puzzability continues a back-to-school series entitled, Welcome, students:

Rinks; Kirsten Dunst
What to Submit:
Submit both pieces, with the shorter one first (as “Rinks; Kirsten Dunst” in the example), for your answer.

Here’s today’s puzzle:
