Desiree Thibodeaux has been part of the family for 25 years. And that family connection between customers and staff along with a menu that's served up the same great dishes for 46 years is what has made Mike Anderson's a success. The restaurant is named for its owner, an All-American linebacker at LSU from 1967 to 1970. Mike Anderson opened his restaurant in a small house outside LSU's North Gate in 1975, then moved the restaurant to its current location at 1031 W. Lee Drive in the 1980s. "For sure, we're a staple in Baton … [Read more...] about At Mike Anderson’s Seafood, diners love servers just as much as the food. ‘It’s like a family.’

BOSTON (AP) — U.S. colleges hoping for a return to normalcy next fall are weighing how far they should go in urging students to get the COVID-19 vaccine, including whether they should — or legally can — require it. Universities including Rutgers, Brown, Cornell and Northeastern recently told students they must get vaccinated before returning to campus next fall. They hope to achieve herd immunity on campus, which they say would allow them to loosen spacing restrictions in classrooms and dorms.
