Highland Jazz & Blues Fest next week on Time for A Better Shreveport, 5 to 5:30 pm, on KSCL, 91.3 fm

Listen at 5 pm on Mondays to hear live chats with community leaders on the KSCL program Time for A Better Shreveport.

A recent guest was Maurice Loridans, a Shreveport attorney who commutes via bicycle. He has been pedaling to work and to most social appointments since the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Loridans recommends, based on his daily riding:
- fenders
- riding as though you were a motorized vehicle
- bright lights, front and rear
- steady hydration
- planning your route with both traffic and elevation in mind.
- he also promised to respond to riders who want advice about strategies in smart bike commuting in Shreveport. That's mloridans@bellsouth.net.

Nov 22 on KSCL: Huw & Corolyn Thomas, Cornwellians who are crossing the US on a tandem bicycle rig that includes a shelter box, will be overnighting in Shreveport and available for questions. Their trip is connected to the cause of International Disaster Relief. Please see http://tandem10.wordpress.com/.

Next week: background on the Highland Jazz and Blues Fest from founder Amy Loe and also from one of the primo musicians performing at the fest.
