By Dave Graichen

 

Louisianians are once again waking up to cooler feeling weather outside here on this last week in July. State Climatologist Barry Keim says this less humid air is very similar to the cold front we had a couple of weeks ago. Keim says the lower humidity is going to last most of the week and could even go into the front part of this weekend. It’s uncommon to have one cold front this time of year, much less two.

 

Authorization for new VA clinics in Lafayette and Lake Charles is one step closer to reality according to Lafayette Congressman Charles Boustany. Boustany received confirmation that authorization for the two new clinics will be included in the final draft of a bipartisan bill on VA legislation. Boustany expects both houses of Congress to vote on the measure this week. He says funding for the construction of these new clinics is not included this legislation. But Boustany says if this bill passes, it will clear the way for funding.

The state’s top school board will hold its second special meeting in less than a month today in the battle over Common Core.

One possibility is for BESE to join a pro-Common Core lawsuit filed last week by parents and teachers.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s office is in mourning today after a 32-year veteran of the department drowned Sunday while trying to rescue his dog from a pond. Lt. Col. Bobby Webre says 56-year-old Sam Vitter’s Yorkshire Terrier went in the pond running after some wildlife. He says Vitter went in and rescued the dog, but never resurfaced. Webre says they aren’t exactly sure what happened to cause the drowning.

 

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is investigating a rare hit-and-run boating crash. L-D-W-F’s Adam Einck says the incident happened Saturday night on the Amite River Diversion Canal in Livingston Parish when one ski boat was rear ended and run over by another ski boat.  He says that boat was last seen speeding through a wake zone. Three people on the ski boat that was struck were treated for minor injuries.

Alexandria's Garden District Neighborhood Foundation is hosting a Holiday Tour of Homes to include four homes in the Garden District. 2014 Marye Street was the home of General and Mrs. Omar Bradley when they resided in Alexandria during the Louisiana Maneuvers. 2022 Albert Street was modeled after actress Cathleen Moore's Beverly Hills home and it is said that Long was an occasional overnight guest in this house. 1703 Polk Street is built entirely of glass bottles circa 1945. More than 3,000 bottles were used to construct the house, which was originally used as a gift shop. The house at 1924 Barrister Street has been in the same family since it was built 100 years ago. What began as a one-story planter cottage, is now a grand colonial home.
