News For Wednesday 07/16/14


News for Wednesday 071614

By Dave Graichen

 

Even though we're in the heart of summertime, Louisiana had an unusual  cold front move in beginning yesterday afternoon and overnight. State  Climatologist Barry Keim says most of the state should be feeling the  effects of this system, with a slight drop in temperatures but a  dramatic drop in humidity.  Keim says unfortunately the temperature and humidity will start to  rebound tomorrow, and we'll basically be back to normal on Friday.

 

The 2014 Louisiana Annual Sales Tax Holiday has  been set for August 1st  and  2nd.  The holiday exempts most retail purchases  from  the 4-percent state  sales  tax.   Local  sales  taxes  will still apply during the event unless the local taxing authority waives the fees.

 

The  New Orleans Saints and tight end Jimmy Graham have finally come to an agreement on a long-term contract.  As first reported by ESPN, Graham  will get 40 million dollars over the next four years with 21 million dollars  guaranteed.   NFL  Analyst  Mike Detillier believes Graham is worth every penny and this is a win-win  for the Black and Gold and the tight end. This is the richest deal in the history of the NFL for a tight end.

 

Gov. Bobby Jindal made his case Tuesday for shaping debate in the mid-term elections by offering conservatives a stinging analysis of the federal Affordable Care Act. Jindal, a possible contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, released his policy document just hours after news broke that he is headed to New Hampshire in September. The governor told Time magazine that any decision about running for president will come after Thanksgiving. The magazine writer marveled at Jindal’s “oversized New Orleans Saints belt buckle” and “thick Cajun drawl.”

 

Campaign  finance  reports show Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu and Republican challenger  Bill Cassidy are nearly neck-and-neck when it comes to how much money they have available in this year's US Senate race.  Landrieu reports  6.2  million dollars on hand, while Cassidy says  he  has  5.8  million  dollars. Cassidy's  campaign  reports  they  raised over 1.6 million  dollars during the second quarter, while Landrieu  has  raised  2.1 million.

 

Former New  Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has reportedly filed a notice of appeal on his  conviction  of bribery and other charges by a federal jury  in  February.  Last week  Nagin  received  a  10  year  prison sentence for  his  crimes.  The filing does not give reasons for the appeal.

 

The Calcasieu Parish  Sheriff's Office says they are looking for the person who tried to steal  an  ATM  with  a  forklift  from a nearby construction  site.  They  say  it  occurred  in the earlt morning hours yesterday. The suspect rammed the ATM numerous times but, was unable  to gain access and no cash was stolen.

 

Wi-Fi communications may improve soon in Louisiana Schools.  The FCC has approved a plan to funnel $2 billion over the next two years for high-speed  wireless  connectivity in public and private schools and libraries.  The Schools  and  Libraries  Program  gives  up  to a 90 percent discount on telecommunications and internet access costs.

 

The  St.  Martin  Parish Sheriff's office says they arrested a drunk man at a truck stop  who  called  the  cops to report he'd planted a bomb in the facility. They say the suspect, 55-year-old Joseph Quinn of Parks refused to cooperate or identify himself. No bomb was found and  Parks  was  booked with terrorizing, disturbing  the  peace  by intoxication and battery of a police officer.

 

The St. John Parish Sheriff's  Office  has  a Slidell man in custody after being caught with 120 pounds of marijuana while traveling with three children.  Deputies found the drugs after conducting a traffic

stop  in  LaPlace.  33-year-old Adam Landry was  booked  on  several charges including possession of marijuana.

 

Narcotics  agents  in St. Landry Parish have arrested two people for allegedly selling synthetic  marijuana  to  undercover  agents  at a convenience  store  in  Opelousas.   Store  owner and  a  store employee were taken into custody as a result of the operation.

 

The Louisiana 1st Circuit Court of Appeal stayed a ruling Tuesday that, less than 24 hours earlier, had ordered a Donaldsonville man to serve out an unfulfilled two-year prison sentence stemming from a 19-year-old negligent homicide conviction. On July 10, 1995, Stanley White pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of negligent homicide following an alcohol-related crash on Airline Highway near Gonzales that had killed a 10-week-old girl nearly a year earlier. Though convicted, white was never call to serve his time. In the interim, White, who was 19 at the time of the accident, has earned a college degree, has held a job and has never again been in trouble with the law. No word yet as to when his next hearing will be..
