News for Thursday 060514

By Dave Graichen


The body of a woman found dead Monday in a residence in Colfax has been identified as 33 year old Jhonnie Kashun Kite of Colfax. Grant Parish deputies Monday afternoon discovered the bodies of Kite and McKennedy Armstead, a Rapides Parish inmate who walked away from a work-release detail Monday morning and stole a city of Alexandria truck. The cause of the deaths has yet to be released by authorities. However, the case is being investigated as a murder suicide.  


Alexandria police report an Alexandria Wal-Mart employee and an alleged accomplice have been arrested in connection with the theft of two $1,000 money orders from the Wal-Mart on Coliseum Boulevard. The employee, 36 year old Joe Nathan Hall III, faces a charge of theft over $1,500. 23 year old Jerome Lamar Dorsey is charged with theft of $500-$1,500. Both men are sitting in the Rapides Parish Jail.


As  part  of  continuing  efforts  to  speed  up wait times at Motor Vehicle Offices across the state, Louisiana State Police says you'll now be able to use plastic to pay for your fee.  The state announced yesterday that you will now  be  able to pay your fees utilizing debit cards, credit cards, and e-checks. Oh, but convenience comes with a charge, a fee of $1.25 plus 1% of the total charge on all  debit  and credit card transactions.


Early yesterday Governor  Bobby  Jindal  told the press he was  waiting on an opinion from the Attorney General before signing legislation  that would block a lawsuit filed by a southeast Louisiana levee board  against  oil and gas companies for damages to the state's coastline. Apparently, the Governor didn’t like the AG’s opinion to veto the bill. He rejected it.. No word on when Jindal will officially sign the bill.


Several large budget films are being shot in Louisiana  this  summer such  as  Fantastic  Four,  Terminator  5, Pitch Perfect 2 and a new Jurrassic Park movie as Hollywood South continues  to  boom.   Chris Stelly,  executive director of Louisiana Entertainment says some of the largest  films  in  the  world  are  being produced right now in Louisiana.


Governor  Jindal  has  awarded  his  second  Governor's   Award  for Entrepreneurial  Excellence  to  Metal  Shark  Boats  in Jeanerette. Metal  Shark  is  a  leading  supplier of welded aluminum boats  for commercial, defense, and law enforcement applications worldwide.


A fire broke out late Wednesday morning at Westlake Chemical Corporation’s vinyls plant inside a refrigeration unit that stores a non-hazardous, but reactive organic chemical used in making common household plastic PVC. Smoke from the fire, which lasted about an hour and caused no injuries,  could be seen from miles away.


Two  Louisiana-based  companies  are included in this year's Fortune 500.  Monroe-based CenturyLink dropped from number 150 to number 158 this year while New Orleans-based Entergy climbed from number 261 to number 242 in the list of top-revenue  generating  companies  in the

United States


The  St.  Martin Parish Sheriff's Office has arrested a  St.  Martin Parish  correctional   officer   on   multiple  charges.   After  an investigation, 22-year-old Marshall Babineaux  Jr.  of Breaux Bridge

was arrested Tuesday on charges of malfeasance in office,  possession with  intent of distribute marijuana, and introduction of contraband in a penal institution.


A 33-year-old Washington Parish  man  has  been arrested and charged with  being  in  possession  of six stolen military  veterans  grave plaques.  Amos Bellew apparently  removed  the  plaques  from  their graves  and  attempted  to  sell  them  to  a scrap metal dealer who informed the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office.   The  plaques  are valued at $1000 each.


After a series of negative ads against democratic senator Mary Landrieu  earlier this year, the only TV ads running now are commercials of  Landrieu promoting herself. U-L Lafayette political science professor  Pearson Cross says there's still five months to go before the November  4th primary, so this is just the calm before the storm.  So far third-party conservative groups have been the ones to attack  Landrieu and now Congressman Cassidy in radio & television commercials. Cross says eventually Landrieu's  main challenger, Baton Rouge Congressman Bill Cassidy will have to be  more aggressive, plus these third party groups only have so much money.


A state appeals court says they will not hear another case regarding the  seven  consecutive  five  year  prison  terms that Brett Gerald received for driving drunk when seven people from  Baton  Rouge died in  a  crash  he  was involved in in 2012. The 1st Circuit Court  of Appeal last month affirmed  Gerald's  convictions on seven counts of vehicular  homicide and the consecutive  5  year  sentences.  Gerald pleaded guilty  to  the  charges.  His lawyer says he's now going to take the case to the Louisiana Supreme Court.


Funding  delays are pushing back the projected production start date for the new Elio Motors 3 wheeler plant in Shreveport.  The original start date was scheduled for this March, but now it looks as if they will have to delay that until September of 2015.


LSU pitching star Aaron Nola was  named  one  of the three finalists for the 2014 USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award. The honor is given to the nation's top amateur baseball player. Fans  can  vote  for their favorite choice at GoldenSpikesAward.com.


The Ragin Cajuns are gearing up to play Ole Miss this weekend in the Super Regionals. U-L Lafayette beat Mississippi  State five to three to  advance to play the Rebels, who won their regional  with  a  win over Washington.
