A Louisiana mother confessed to putting hand sanitizer into the feeding tube of her 17-month-old son, who died of alcohol poisoning with a blood-alcohol content more than three times the legal limit for adults, authorities said. The mother also implicated herself in poisoning the boy with perfume about two months after he was born, a crime for which the boy's father had been charged, the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office in southeastern Louisiana announced Wednesday. Erika Wigstrom told authorities that in both cases she acted to spare Lucas Ruiz suffering, the sheriff's office said in a press release.

NEW ORLEANS -- As the Gulf Coast braced for Hurricane Isaac hours before the seventh anniversary of catastrophic Hurricane Katrina, the storm made landfall in southeastern Louisiana on Tuesday evening packing 80-mph winds as the outer bands of hurricane-force winds and storm surge began battering New Orleans. Landfall came in Plaquemines Parish at 6:45 p.m. southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River, authorities said. By 7 p.m. in New Orleans, winds bent trees like rubbery posts, rain pelted down, and the waters of Lake Pontchartrain churned large waves ashore.

Chris Sheff drove in two runs and stole four bases when Pepperdine became one of two undefeated teams in the NCAA Division I West Regional with an 8-5 victory over Southeastern Louisiana Saturday night. Pepperdine (42-10-1) has won 14 consecutive games and 24 of its last 26. The Waves will play sixth-seeded Washington in the winner's bracket final today. Sheff singled in two runs in a four-run fifth inning to give third-seeded Pepperdine a 6-1 lead.

Leo McClure, associate head basketball coach at Southeastern Louisiana, went on a recruiting trip last week and came back with a prize--literally. Scouting a prospect at Delgado Community College in New Orleans, he decided to enter a halftime shooting contest sponsored by an insurance company. To win the prize, the shooter had to make a layup, a three-pointer from the top of the key, a three-pointer from the wing and a shot from half court, all within 35 seconds.

Mississippi (2-0) at South Carolina (2-1) Thursday, 4:30 p.m., ESPN Mississippi really hasn't done much to earn its early-season No. 4 ranking, beating Memphis and Southeastern Louisiana, but tonight's Southeastern Conference opener should indicate whether the Rebels are serious title contenders. South Carolina had a strange start, slogging out a 7-3 win over North Carolina State before losing a wild SEC opener, 41-37, to Georgia. The pick: Mississippi. California (3-0)

BP's request for tax records poses a problem for some residents of fishing communities in southeastern Louisiana — the nonconformists who haven't kept records or reported their cash income. The first step for a commercial fisherman or coastal business seeking compensation for losses suffered in the oil spill seems simple enough: Submit copies of a commercial fishing license, proof of residence and tax statements. But the request for tax records poses a serious challenge to some residents of close-knit fishing communities on the swampy edges of southeastern Louisiana, which for generations have harbored self-reliant nonconformists who don't pay much heed to everyday rules and regulations.

Eleven offshore oil workers remained missing Wednesday night off the southeastern tip of Louisiana, a day after an oil rig fire sent a column of flame into the sky and pangs of worry through a community built around the risky job of extracting valuable crude from below the ocean floor. The U.S. Coast Guard had helicopters, boats and a plane searching a 900-nautical-square-mile section of the Gulf of Mexico near the mobile offshore drilling unit Deepwater Horizon, which burst into flames after an explosion around 10 p.m. Tuesday.

From the air, the coast of Louisiana resembles a broken mirror, slivered in shards of landscape and bands of floodwater. On the ground, the destruction is by now familiar -- whole forests toppled, houses carried off by currents or obliterated by wind blasts, sweat-streaked soldiers and repair crews gaping at the enormity of it all.
