Kenner to open time capsule

KENNER, La. (AP) - Kenner says it will open a time capsule as part of the celebration of Louisiana's 200th anniversary.

The time capsule does not date back that far however. City officials said Wednesday it was buried 25 years ago in Rivertown.

Kenner officials celebrated the state's 175th anniversary by burying the time capsule at LaSalle's Landing exactly 25 years ago. The Times-Picayune reports the capsule will be unearthed later in the year as part of the bicentennial celebration.

Louisiana became the 18th state in the country in 1812.
