NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Former President Bush is returning to New Orleans - the scene of one of his presidency's lowest points - to remember the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

He's also coming to tout the region's recovery from the costliest natural disaster in the nation.

He's delivering remarks this morning at Warren Easton High School, the same school he visited on the first anniversary of Katrina.

With him is his wife, Laura, whose library foundation helped the high school come back. The school boasts of being the oldest public school in New Orleans.

The school's success story is one of Bush's brighter moments in what were dark days for his White House. He was vilified for the government's response to the catastrophic flooding.

The Bush family then heads to Mississippi to honor first responders.
