      Pete Fountain being sought by sister
      Pete Fountain, the world-renown Dixieland clarinetist and New Orleans
      institution, may be among Katrina’s victims, his sister fears.

      Dolores Materne of Metairie, who fled her Metairie home for Lafayette,
      says she hasn’t heard from her 75-year-old brother and his wife
      Beverly, who have homes in hurricane-flattened Bay St. Louis and on Swan
      Street near Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans, since Katrina turned towards
      the central gulf coast.

      She has not been able to reach his three adult children, who live in
      Metairie and New Orleans.

      Materne last spoke with Fountain on Thursday Aug. 25, and he said he planned
      to head to the city on Sunday. She said he sometimes rides out storms
      at his house on Julia Street and North Beach Boulevard in Bay St. Louis, or
      at Casino Magic, where he relocated his regular New Orleans gig a few
      years back. He’s also been known to leave the area when a storm is
      approaching.

      “At times over the years he’s gone out of town,” she said. “More or
      less lately, he seems to be staying closer to home.”

        up about the personal and political side of the Hurricane with respect to
        his home city of New Orleans.

            The list on this site now incorporates those from other sources and is a more reliable source of information than my sporadic posts. On the bright side, every name brought up on this list appears to be accounted for; on the other hand, many have lost everything. I only hope that the situation with the musicians plays itself out with the general population and we are terribly wrong about the fatalities.
