News For Monday 8/18/14


News for Monday 081814

By Dave Graichen

 

The Grant Parish Sheriff's Office is asking the public for their assistance in helping locate an inmate who walked away from the Federal Prison in Pollock Sunday.  26 year old Jose Garza is described as being  5'8" and 155 lbs. He was last seen wearing grey sweats.  He was incarcerated for drug charges and a felon in possession of a firearm. If you have any information please contact the Grant Parish Sheriff's Office or local authorities.

 

Commercial truck traffic will be banned from the O.K. Allen Bridge beginning Tomorrow. Trucks will be detoured from the bridge, which carries U.S. 71 over the Red River between Alexandria and Pineville, and told to use the Purple Heart Bridge on U.S. 167. The state DOTD says the move is needed to enforce weight limits on the current bridge. The state is spending $82.9 million to build twin two-lane bridges replacing the existing bridge. Traffic should be rerouted from the old bridge by early 2015 and both spans completed by summer 2016. The old bridge will be demolished.

 

LSU is ranked No. 13 in the preseason Associated Press top 25 released Sunday. The Tigers are one of eight Southeastern Conference teams ranked: No.2 Alabama, No. 6 Auburn, No. 9 South Carolina, No. 12 Georgia, No. 18 Ole Miss, No. 21 Texas A&M and No. 24 Missouri. Florida State tops the poll at No. 1, receiving 57 of 60 first-place votes.

 

Another court hearing takes place today regarding the controversial Common Core education standards. Council for a Better Louisiana President Barry Erwin says  at issue today, is whether Governor Bobby Jindal violated his constitutional authority when he took steps to suspend the testing contracts that are tied to Common Core. Common Core supporters were victorious last week when Judge Tim Kelley denied a request from 17 lawmakers to halt the implementation of the academic standards. Today’s hearing is the result of a lawsuit filed by parents and teachers who support the Common Core standards and the judge hearing in the case has already denied a motion to dismiss any parts of the case.

 

The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals confirms 13 new cases of West Nile in the state this past week. Seven of those cases came from Caddo Parish in northwest Louisiana. That brings the total number of cases in the state to 42. Two people have died from West Nile in Louisiana so far this year.

 

Louisiana Economic Development has created a new, free website to help meet recruitment needs of Louisiana employers, while also being a centralized hub for job seekers. Louisiana Job Connection will accelerate the job/applicant search process for both employers and potential employees. Executive Director Kristi Williams says this is not your typical job board site. Louisiana Job Connection.com will automatically match job seekers with jobs for which they are most qualified. Job seekers just need to fill out their information and the site will immediately notify you of available jobs that match your skill set.

 

Elio Motors is about a year away from producing its three-wheeled vehicle at the former General Motors plant in Shreveport. Paul Elio has told the Associated Press that 27-thousand people have already reserved one of their cars that will get 84 miles to the gallon and cost 68-hundred dollars. Elio plans to produce 250-thousand cars a year at the Shreveport facility by 2016.

 

According to the Federal Elections Commission, G-O-P Congressman and US Senate candidate Bill Cassidy has slightly more campaign cash available than Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu. Cassidy’s war chest is at 5-point-6 million dollars, while Landrieu is at 5-point-5 million.

 

The upcoming CBS Television series “NCIS: New Orleans” will do some filming in Baton Rouge at the USS KIDD. USS KIDD Executive Director Alex Juan says the show was looking for a real naval battle ship and the KIDD was an ideal location. The ship will be closed to the public through Friday for ongoing inventory and filming on the ship. No word on when the episode filmed on the KIDD will air. The series premiere of “NCIS: New Orleans” is set for September 23rd.

 

Forty-five years ago today one of the most destructive hurricanes in US history made landfall along the Gulf Coast. Hurricane Camille was a Category Five storm when it churned over the mouth of the Mississippi River, before slamming into the Mississippi coast. Louisiana State Climatologist Barry Keim says the storm killed an estimated 150 people in Louisiana and Mississippi.

 

An LSU engineering professor is involved in research that’s trying to develop technology so your vehicle could one day communicate with other vehicles on the road. Professor Sherif Ishak says hopefully soon, cars will be able to warn other drivers of accidents, traffic jams and other road hazards. He says the technology is similar to how Wi-Fi works.

 

The LDWF Enforcement Division have arrested a St. Amant (SAN a maw) man in connection with a boating hit and run on the Amite River Diversion Canal in Livingston Parish. Thirty-two year old Thomas Amorello was booked on felony hit and run, negligent injury and reckless operation of a vessel.

 

The Saints beat the Titans 31 to 24 Friday night in preseason action, but Coach Sean Payton called it painful to watch because of the 22 penalties called against his team for 184 yards. Payton says having that many penalties is a sign of an undisciplined team.

 

We’re less than two weeks away from LSU’s kicking the season off against Wisconsin and Coach Les Miles has provided very little information on who is leading the battle for the starting quarterback. Miles says Anthony Jennings and Brandon Harris are improving and he likes how they are competing. The Tigers held a scrimmage on Saturday and LSU did not provide any individual statistics on the quarterbacks.
