News for Friday 060614

By Dave Graichen

 

 

A  Deville  man  is  dead following a car versus motorcycle accident Wednesday night here in Rapides  Parish  on Highway 28 just east of LA highway 116.  Louisiana State Police say that they suspect high speed on the part of the motorcycle was partially  to blame for the accident that

killed fifty-five year old Chris Adams. The crash remains under investigation.

 

Three people have been arrested for allegedly keeping a transgender woman as a slave in the Ajax area of Natchitoches Parish. According to investigators, the victim was held captive, tortured and forced to perform menial tasks and sexual acts. Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Victor Jones Jr. called it the most “severe and disturbing” case of human trafficking ever investigated in the parish.

The three suspects , two women and a man in their late 30’s  turned themselves in Wednesday and remained in custody at the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center.

 

After a week of fun events with southern flare around Louisiana, the  nationally televised Miss USA Competition is happening in Baton Rouge  this Sunday. You can watch the pageant live on NBC at 7pm.  The Miss USA Competition is held by Miss Universe which is a joint venture between Donald Trump and NBC Television.

 

You can add Louisiana Tech to the list of universities in Louisiana who have decided to become tobacco-free.  Spokesman Dave Guerin says the change will be effective August 1st in accordance with state law directing all public  colleges  to  develop  smoke free policies for their campuses. He  says the tobacco-free policy will apply to  all  Louisiana  Tech faculty, staff, students, visitors, and contractors.

 

This weekend is the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries' Free  Fishing Weekend.  People of all ages can fish on any of the state's  public waters without a fishing license this Saturday and Sunday.  The Department hopes the weekend will introduce newcomers, visitors, and even people with rusty skills to one of the state's most popular  sports. 

 

The prize amount for Saturday night's Powerball jackpot will be an estimated $221 million dollars. That's an approximate cash value of $132 million dollars.

 

Gov. Bobby Jindal took optometrists’ side on controversial legislation that stirred up the state’s medical community. Jindal announced Thursday signing into law House Bill 1065. The bill allows optometrists to increase their workload by performing injections into the eyelid to treat styes and tackling laser procedures that don’t involve anesthetic or stitches. The legislation caused controversy because it allows optometrists, who are not physicians, to expand their practices. Ophthalmologists are medical doctors; optometrists are not. Optometrists routinely do eye exams, vision tests, diagnose and treat certain eye abnormalities.

 

The Philadelphia Phillies selected Aaron Nola with the seventh pick in the MLB draft Thursday night, quickly ending any suspense for LSU’s All-America hurler. Nola, a Baton Rouge native, became just the 16th LSU player chosen in the first round. Pitcher Kevin Gausman, in 2012, is the most recent member of that group.The bonus allotted for that pick is $3.3 million, but a team isn’t restricted to that number.

 

The LHSAA executive  committee has agreed to split the football state championships at the Mercedes  Benz  Superdome  over  a  two-weekend period.   The  select  school  title  games will be played on Friday December the fifth, and the non-select  schools on December 12th and 13th.

 

A Mississippi sports reporter, who was in the Hub City for the baseball  regional, apologizes after ripping Lafayette. Matthew Stevens, a  Mississippi State beat writer for the Commercial Dispatch, said on  Bulldog Sports Radio he couldn't understand what people were saying and  complained about a police officer unnecessarily pulling him over.  Bulldog Sports Radio is an internet station devoted to Mississippi State  sports. His comments went viral and upset many people in Acadiana.  Stevens suggested schools should teach Cajun as a foreign language, so  people can understand  Louisianans when they travel to the Bayou State.

 

Legalize Louisiana will hold a rally on the steps of the State Capital  Saturday afternoon for the legalization of marijuana.  The group does  not believe elected officials are listening to the people.  A

co-organizer of the event, Kerri Lee Short-Brecheen (bri-keen'), says  they are in the majority.  She says 57-percent of Americans are in favor of marijuana reform. Several bills dealing with marijuana reform were heard during this  legislative session and none of them passed.
