Welcome home ceremonies will take place today throughout the state to  welcome back over 300 Louisiana National Guard soldiers, who spent  ten months on active duty in the Middle East. Louisiana National Guard  spokesperson, Colonel Mike Kazmierzak says the returning soldiers are part of the 844th Engineer Company and 1021st Engineer Company.  The 1021st is based in Covington, while the 844th is based in Pineville. The 844th engineering company will fly into the Alexandria International  Airport tonight. Kazmierzak says the 1021st is busing back to various locations throughout Louisiana, because they couldn't find an airliner to fly the men and women home.

royalties for the recipes.   Copeland  founded Popeye's in 1972.  He lost the company in a bankruptcy case in  the  90s,  but retained the exclusive contract to supply spices to the chain.

Ice-cold beer and buttery popcorn? They’re already on the menu at AMC theaters in Harvey, Metairie, Harahan, Houma and Hammond, as well as Celebrity Theatres in Broussard. Senate Bill 654 would allow other commercial film theaters across the state to stock alcoholic beverages. The bill squeaked out of the Louisiana House with exactly the number of votes it needed. Now it’s before Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is under pressure to veto it. On the governor’s desk are letters from legislators and a vocal church congregation. They all ask Jindal to stop the bill from becoming state law.

 

Officials say a former State Correctional  officer  has been charged for allegedly beating an inmate at Angola. 33-year-old Mark Sharp of Amite is charged with deprivation of rights under color  of  law and
