As the Superdome’s energy provider and stadium management try to determine what caused a 34-minute power outage at Sunday’s Super Bowl, local officials are hoping the incident won’t leave a black eye on the city or prevent the league’s big game from coming back to town.

Larry Roedel, a lawyer for the state board that oversees the Superdome, said Monday that the outage did not appear to be related to work done on the stadium’s electrical system in December. The work, approved by the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District last fall, replaced feeder equipment connecting the stadium to power provider Entergy New Orleans.

The journey to this Super Bowl wound through bounties and replacement refs, eventually bringing the big game back to the Big Easy – with a replacement quarterback, a sibling rivalry and a grand exit for one of the NFL’s greatest players, clouded by the obscure healing powers of deer-antler spray.

It is a Super Bowl of comebacks, of firsts and lasts, and – if San Francisco wins – the best.

A win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday gives the 49ers six championships, matching Pittsburgh’s titles in the Super Bowl era. Unlike the Steelers, the Niners have never lost one.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu has ordered a dusk-to-dawn curfew as Hurricane Isaac lashes the city.

At a news conference Wednesday, Landrieu issued the curfew as the city deals with downed power lines and tree limbs and other debris littering the streets, as well as some flooding from heavy rain and whipping wind..

Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas says at least nine people were booked on looting-related charges, but described the incidents as relatively “few.” He says authorities are not “seeing a lot of people on the streets and we appreciate that.”

Tropical Storm Isaac targeted a broad swath of the Gulf Coast on Monday and had New Orleans in its crosshairs, bearing down just ahead of the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

The potential for a landfall as a Category 1 hurricane as soon as Tuesday prompted evacuations along a wide area of the Gulf Coast and sent people out to stock up on staples.

“I gassed up – truck and generator”, John Corll, 59, a carpenter, said as he left a New Orleans coffee shop Monday morning. He went through Katrina in 2005 and was expecting a weaker storm this time, adding that he thinks the levee system is in better shape to handle a storm surge than when Katrina hit. “I think the state and local governments are much better prepared for the storm surge and emergencies,” Corll said.

Louisiana State Police Col. Mike Edmonson says he still has an investigator working with the FBI on wiretapping allegations involving the New Orleans Saints, but adds that no evidence has been turned over to federal prosecutors at this time.

Authorities have been working on the case since April, when ESPN, citing anonymous sources, said Superdome wiring was rigged so Saints general manager Mickey Loomis could listen to opposing teams’ radio communications during games.

Jazz Fest

Bruce Springsteen has closed out the first weekend of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival with a 2 ½-hour show that combined crowd-pleasers such as “Born to Run” with the cover tune of his new CD, “Wrecking Ball.”

Fans began staking out spots when the Fair Grounds opened at 11 a.m. Sunday, rushing from the entrance gates to spread blankets and set up chairs close to the stage. By the time Springsteen stepped on stage fans were stretched around the fairgrounds track, some standing 10 to 12 people deep.

At one point New Orleans blues legend Dr. John took the stage with Springsteen, joining him on “Something You Got” and “Oh Mary Don’t You Weep.”.
