News For Wednesday 06/25/14


News for Wednesday 062514

By Dave Graichen

 

An investigation  in  underway  in  the shooting death of an off-duty Vermillion Parish Sheriff's deputy.  Allen  Barres  was  gunned down after  he reported suspicious activity by suspects while mowing  his

lawn.  Louisiana  State Police Spokesman Stephen Hammons says, after they allegedly shot  Barres,  they fled in his vehicle, which showed up in South Abbeville. Police arrested 20 year-old Quintalyn Richard and 19 year-old Baylon Taylor.

 

A Jennings man has been arrested  for  shooting  a  police  officer. Jennings Two police officers responded to a disturbance just  before noon Monday, and Sargeant Ricky Benoit was shot in the neck by 30 year-old  George  D.  Lowdins  who  was  hiding  from  view.  He was apprehended  by the other officer, and charged with attempted  first degree murder  of a police officer.  Benoit is in serious but stable condition.

 

Despite a ruling from a Baton Rouge judge, the state will continue with  its plans to close the Huey P Long Medical Center in Pineville. Judge  Robert Downing says the Senate violated the open meetings law when the  Health and Welfare panel heard legislation authorizing the hospital's  closure. The hospital is in the district of state Senator Rick Gallot.  Gallot opposes the closure of the hospital, and knew at that time, the  Senate Health and Welfare Committee did not give enough advanced  notice to allow for public comment, when they considered the issue. But, the bottom line, patients  who used the Huey P Long Medical Center will use two nearby private  hospitals. The Jindal administration says the privatization deal will  lead to better health care, but Gallot  has some concerns. He feels the Jindal administration rushed the closure of HPL.

 

Governor Bobby Jindal has signed legislation  that  would  require a doctor, in most cases, to leave a brain dead pregnant woman  on life support  until  her baby is born.  New Orleans Representative Austin Badon says it's their duty as lawmakers to do everything possible to protect human life  which  is currently in state statute.  Opponents to the measure say this takes  away the rights of the family and the husband in making end of life decisions. The new law goes into effect immediately.

 

State Treasurer John Kennedy says  Governor  Bobby Jindal has vetoed the bill that would require additional financial  accountability and legislative  over  sight  of  state contracts. The bill  would  have

required  that all state dollar  contracts  $40,000  or  more  get approval from lawmakers.

 

A tragic accident in Ascension Parish has claimed the lives of two  children and injured three adults after an SUV crashed into a group of  people fishing near Bayou Manchac.  State Trooper Jared Sandifer says  the two children, ages six and nine, were pronounced dead at the scene.  The three adults, all men, were transported to a local hospital with  minor to moderate injuries.  Authorities say impairment doesn't appear to be a factor in the accident  but the investigation is ongoing.

 

Today a federal judge will hear arguments whether Louisiana should  recognize same-sex marriages from other states. The issue will come down  to how US District Judge Martin Feldman interprets the Supreme Court's  decision in the US v Windsor case. A ruling for Louisiana to recognize same-sex marriages would  give gay married couples numerous benefits not afforded to them  currently, like issues with inheritance laws, income taxes, retirement  benefits, health insurance, and more. Whatever way Feldman decides to rule on this issue, this case is most  likely headed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

 

A former managing auditor for the state Department of Children and Family Services told a federal judge Tuesday that he used his state credit card to rent hotel suites for Mardi Gras in New Orleans and also was reimbursed more than $27,000 for official travel that never occurred. 33 year old Corey Polk is the third ex-DCFS auditor to plead guilty to federal program fraud since late May.

 

Two months ago ship builder Boyse Bollinger endorsed US Senator Mary  Landrieu in a commercial. Today the lawmaker from Louisiana announced  she included $318 million for new vessels that would be built at  Bollinger in a bill that funds the Dept. of Homeland security. LSU  Political Science Prof. Robert Hogan says this is good and bad for her. Hogan says this is why incumbents have somewhat of an advantage during  campaigns because they can show their voters they have the power to bring money to the state. However he feels her opponents will point  out that she had a hand in moving cash to a major supporter.
