475. We talk to Joyce Corrington about the career of her and her John Corrington. Husband-and-wife team John William Corrington & Joyce Hooper Corrington were the authors of the screenplay for Battle for the Planet of the Apes. John had a background in writing poetry and novels before he and his wife Joyce - both professors in New Orleans, John in English and Joyce in Chemistry - moved on to movie screen-writing in the late 1960s. Among their screenplays were The Omega Man (1971), starring Charlton Heston - the second of his three classic sci-fi films, after Planet of the Apes (1968) and before Soylent Green (1973).

  2. This week in New Orleans history. Ordinance #6022, Administrative Series, passed on June 25, 1879, was the first to demand that permits be obtained (from the Board of Health) after the certificate of grade had been issued by the Surveyor. Section 12 of the ordinance states: "No lot shall be used for building purposes in the city of New Orleans until the same shall have been inspected by the City Surveyor, who shall give a certificate that such lot is filled above the level of the banquette and graded as to be effectually drained into the street gutters, and upon such certificate all owners, agents, contractors and builders are required to obtain permits from the board of health before commencing the erection of any building."
