By Dave Graichen

 

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.

 

Jim Elder is the new executive director at The Shepherd Center. Elder, an Alexandria native, is a graduate of Bob Jones University in South Carolina. He also spent 11 years in California before moving back to Alexandria. The 54 year old Elder returned to Central Louisiana in 1995 as a single parent to six children. He since has been involved in church ministry and non-profit work. He has served on the board of directors of The Shepherd Center, Rapides Parish Advocacy Center and the Renaissance Home.

It didn't start off as the perfect story-book wedding in  Bunkie, as a  wedding  crasher  stole  thousands  of  dollars’ worth of wedding presents, claiming he was from the Department of Homeland  Security. Bunkie  Police Spokesman Chad Jeansonne says the suspect-25 year-old William Girard  Logan-spoke  with  many people at the reception, and then was seen loading all of the presents  into  a  pickup after the couple had left. Jeansonne says after obtaining a search  warrant of the suspect's home, some of the wedding presents were found, but not all of them. The search continues to find the rest.

 

A  Bossier Parish man pleads guilty to manslaughter in the murder of his estranged wife. Prosecutors say Robert Bond kidnapped Annie Bond from  her  home last November. Robert Bond eventually killed her and the victim's  charred  remains  were found in Webster Parish. Bond faces up to 40 years in prison.

 

The  sentencing for former New Orleans  Mayor  Ray  Nagin  has  been delayed  again.  It is now on July 9th when Nagin will know how long he will be  in  prison  for  taking bribes and a kickback during the rebuilding of the city following Hurricane Katrina.

 

Popeye's  has  purchased  the  recipes  for  the restaurant from the family of founder Al Copeland for $43 million  dollars.   Previously the  fried-chicken  restaurant chain paid over $3 million in  annual

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.

 

The  Rhode  Island  Board  of Education  has picked  former Louisiana higher ed commissioner Jim Purcell  to  lead  their  state college  system.  Purcell was higher education commissioner here for

three years and decided  not  to seek a new contract this year after coming under fire over but cuts to state colleges.

 

The Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office says  a  Monroe  man  is  under arrest for allegedly burning his 2 year old son in a hot bathtub  on Sunday.  They  say  an  investigation  revealed 23-year-old Jonathan Wilson failed to seek medical treatment  for the victim and returned the child to his mother the following day.  The  toddler  reportedly suffered severe burns.

 

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

making  false  statements. The suspect allegedly struck a handcuffed inmate with a baton which resulted in bodily injury then lied to the FBI.

 

According  to  associate  athletic  director  Brian  Broussard,  LSU expects to dish out a record 73,000-plus season tickets  this  year. He says the school has already sold more than 30,000 tickets to  the season-opening  game  against  Wisconsin  in  Houston. The home game against Alabama on November 8th is already sold  out and they expect the  game  against  Ole  Miss  will  do the same. LSU will  have  an official season ticket count by mid-July.

 

Oklahoma State announced Monday  that LSU point guard Anthony Hickey will transfer to OSU and be eligible  for  the upcoming season. They say the NCAA has approved a waiver for Hickey  who  spent  the  past three  seasons  in  purple  and gold. He averaged 8.4 points and 3.8 assists as a junior and led the team with 62 steals.
