The place of Tom Dempsey in hearts of Wh New Orleans
The place of Tom Dempsey in hearts of Who Dat Nation is secure
The Saints won. The cheers of fans across New Orleans and Louisiana could be heard. Dempsey’s successful 63-yard field goal beat the 56-yard field goal record set 17 years earlier in 1953. Dempsey’s high-flying kick made it seem as though the Saints had won the Super Bowl.
Dempsey won the hearts of Saints fans with that improbable kick and an unlikely win. The Saints finished the season with a miserable 2-win record. Dempsey went on to much fame and notice, spending the rest of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Los Angeles Rams, the Houston Oilers and the Buffalo Bills after being cut by the Saints in 1971 when he missed a series of much shorter kicks during the preseason. Dempsey wore Eagles, Rams, Oilers and Bills uniforms, but people here only saw him in black and gold for the rest of his life.
He was without his family as he passed, like so many who suffer the final claw of this nasty virus. Dempsey was in our hearts from the day of The Kick and since. The Who Dat Nation wraps their collective arms around him and his family, and we thank Dempsey for deciding to choose New Orleans and Louisiana as his home and for being one of us.

High School Faculty produces face masks for the front lines
The growing pandemic has left the front lines with depleting resources. Personal Protective Equipment that is used in the fight against COVID-19 has become so scarce that people have now begun to create equipment themselves.
Robert Thomas, who works at Georgetown High School, has now started to make face shields for people on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak. He uses the laser cutter at the school for producing the shields. Robert explained that initially, it took him two hours to print a shield, but after many trials, he has made his method quite efficient. He now makes four masks in six minutes, on a single sheet of 12 1/2 inch by 12-inch acrylic.
These shields would be able to protect the doctors and nurses from becoming the next victims of the virus. They protect the mask from moisture that can splatter from a patient's cough. He has produced around 500 face shields and distributed them to local hospitals, clinics, and the Williamson County Jail.
