St. Bernard News Opens Office In Chalmette

CHALMETTE, LA (AP) — The St. Bernard News, a weekly community broadsheet, has opened an office in Chalmette after years of running its operations out of Jefferson Parish.

         A ribbon-cutting was held Wednesday. In attendance were officials and businessmen, including Parish President David Peralta, St. Bernard Sheriff James Pohlmann and state Rep. Raymond E. Garofalo, Jr., R-Chalmette.

         The newspaper's editor, Amber Prattini, says the paper had been run out of office space in Metairie. She hopes to expand the News' coverage of local events.

         The St. Bernard News was founded by E.L. "Bob" Roberson in 1967. The newspaper boasts that it's been publishing ever since it was started — only stopping publication briefly following Hurricane Katrina 10 years ago.

         St. Bernard is also home to the St. Bernard Voice, a 125-year-old newspaper in Arabi.
