News For Tuesday 07/01/14


News for Tuesday 070114

By Dave Graichen

 

US  Representative  Vance  McAllister will seek re-election, despite initially saying he would not  seek  another  term.  McAllister took office last November after a special election,  but  the  politician who  ran  on  a faith and family campaign, was involved in a kissing scandal earlier  this  year.   The  Republican  from Ouachita Parish admits  he  made  a  mistake, but that mistake made him  a  stronger person and a better Congressman. He says his wife has encouraged him to run for re-election. Shortly after McAllister’s announcement yesterday, Governor Bobby Jindal  has released a statement calling McAllister's decision to seek re-election "disappointing".

 

The city of Alexandria’s water conservation order has been rescinded, and the city’s water system has returned to normal following repairs to a massive water main that burst over the weekend.

 

State police report  an Oberlin woman was killed Sunday night in a single-vehicle crash on La. Highway 26 east of Oberlin. Troopers say 72-year-old Emily Adams lost control of her vehicle, crossed the center line and crashed into a ditch. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

 

An Alexandria teen is in hot water after being charged with several armed robberies. 17 year old Dontreal Hampton is in the Rapides Parish Detention Center, his bond set at $300,000. Hampton was arrested by APD officers over the weekend and charged  in connection with three robberies in the city.

 

She was last seen in the front yard of her Natchitoches home on Friday evening. Now authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating 17 year old Bianca Chew. She was last seen wearing a blue and white shirt with pink tight-legged jeans and pink house slippers. Anyone with any information concerning her whereabouts is asked to contact the Natchitoches Police Department.

 

The National Hurricane Center reports, Tropical Depression 1 has formed off the Florida east coast, about 105 miles east southeast of Cape Canaveral, and could strengthen to become Tropical Storm Arthur on today as it moves northward along Florida's east coast. At this point, the storm is no threat to the gulf.

 

US Senatorial candidate Col. Rob Maness begins a 50 Town Hall series  today in Houma.  Maness will be holding Town Hall meetings across the  state during his campaign.  UL Lafayette Political Science Professor Pearson Cross says Maness is starting to establish himself as a viable  candidate in this race, particularly in fundraising.  The Maness campaign said last week that they have now raised over one-million dollars for his election bid.  Maness has been endorsed in this race by former Vice-Presidential  candidate Sarah Palin, The Tea Party Express, and The Tea Party  Leadership Fund, among others.

 

The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education holds a special meeting  today where it's likely the state's top school board will discuss taking  Governor Jindal to court for his attempt to remove the Common Core  education standards out of public schools.  An agenda item for today's meeting calls for BESE to consider hiring special legal counsel.

 

Interest in soccer seems to be at an all-time high as Team USA enters  knockout round of the 2014 World Cup taking on Belgium today.  Baton  Rouge American Outlaws President Mark Jones says the interest has  surpassed his expectations.  He thinks interest in the game has finally  "trickled up" from kids to adults.  The American Outlaws is the unofficial supporters club for United States  Soccer with over 150 chapters nationwide.  In addition to Baton Rouge, Outlaws chapters have also sprouted up in New Orleans, Lafayette, and  Covington, with a Shreveport chapter coming soon.

 

Catahoula Parish investigators are reportedly looking into a case in which human remains were discovered  in  a  cornfield  about 5 miles north  of Sicily Island. The report indicates two people  have  been arrested  in  connection  with  the  case including 30-year-old Leah Marie Pontiff on obstruction of justice and 36-year-old Daniel White on second-degree kidnapping. The victim  has not been identified and the case remains under investigation.

 

The  New  Orleans  Police  Department  now  says  the Sunday morning Bourbon Street shooting has injured 10 people, six  women  and  four men.   Five victims remain hospitalized, four in fair condition, one in critical  condition.  NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas says they are close to getting to  the  bottom  of this investigation. But, he is still asking for the public’s help with the case. Serpas  says  the shootout apparently stemmed from two young men who had gotten into an argument early Sunday morning. Neither of them are the victims.
