News For Monday 06/16/14


News for Monday 061614

By Dave Graichen

 

Congressman  Vance  McAllister  said  Friday  he's  leaning  more towards  running for re-election this fall than not. In an interview with Jim Engster  on  W-R-K-F,  McAllister  says it's more likely he

will qualify for the November election. McAllister says the kissing scandal at the end of last year has made him a stronger man.

 

For veterans in  southeast Louisiana there's now a place for them to be laid to rest.   After  a  couple  of years work and eight million dollars from the federal government, a  veterans cemetery in Slidell

is  now  open.   The  only  other  veterans  cemetery  in  southeast Louisiana is in Chalmette, but it doesn't have any more room for new burials.   Ted  Krumm  is  the  director of the Southeast  Louisiana Veterans Cemetery and he is pleased  a  new  final resting place for heroes is now available. The new cemetery will service over 100-thousand veterans who live in the greater New Orleans area. Preliminary design plans are in place for the new Northeast Louisiana Veterans Cemetery which will be built near Rayville in Richland Parish.

 

Governor Bobby Jindal has vetoed a bill  Friday  that  would  require dogs to be secured in the back of pickup trucks.  The Governor said the bills' definition of the criterion for securing was too broad.

 

Governor Bobby Jindal has vetoed one of the few Common Core bills to make it through the legislative session.   House Bill 953 would give an additional year to prepare for the new set of academic standards. Many opposed the measure because it was yet  another  delay to rules

that were approved in 2012.

 

With Governor Jindal examining options on how to get the state out of  Common Core, over three-dozen business, education and civic groups have  have asked the governor to keep the new academic standards. Council for  for a Better Louisiana president Barry Erwin reminds the governor that  most members of BESE and the Legislature support Common Core.  Common Core are new academic standards in reading, writing and math that  will go into full effect in the upcoming school year. Erwin says over 40  states are also using Common Core, which will increase rigor in the

classroom and give Louisiana an opportunity to see how it's students  fare with the work of other students across the country.

 

PETA is urging Governor Jindal to veto legislation allowing a tiger to  remain a roadside attraction at a truck stop in Grosse Tete.  Senate  Bill 250 allows Michael Sandlin to keep Tony the Tiger at his place of  business just off I-10.  PETA attorney Carney Ann Nasser says it's  inappropriate for the legislature to pass a bill to appease one person.  She says the courts have already decided that Sandlin wasn't lawfully  keeping Tony at the time the dangerous wild animal ban went into effect.

 Sandlin says he takes excellent care of Tony and the people who come to  his truck stop love him.  But Nasser says tigers are apex predators who  roam for hundreds of square miles in the wild.  Nasser contends that keeping Tony in a cage deprives him of many of his  species specific instincts. 

 

Another Louisiana summer is setting in and that means home cooling costs  are going up. In an effort to keep those monthly utility bills down,  Cleco spokesperson Robbyn Cooper suggests you set your thermostat at 78- degrees... Cooper says another good piece of advice is keeping your blinds closed

during the day to keep the hot sunlight out. She says making sure your  attic is properly insulated is also important.  Entergy spokesperson Tom Peters says installing energy efficiency light  bulbs are also a good idea.

 

The University of New Orleans has announced that a working group will determine which of the university’s 84 degree programs will be eliminated in the coming months. UNO President Peter Fos said layoffs are likely to follow those recommendations, which will seek to identify and build on the university’s strengths. The school laid off 28 employees earlier this year to help close a multimillion-dollar deficit.

 

Former  LSU  pitcher  Aaron  Nola  has been named one of  the  three finalists for the National College Baseball  Hall of Fame's National Pitcher of the Year. The award will be presented  in  Lubbock, Texas on June 28th.

 

U-L Lafayette  is  shelling  out the big bucks in a new contract for head football coach Mark Hudspeth,  which  would  make Coach Hud the highest paid coach in Sunbelt Conference.

 

The   New  Orleans  Saints  mini-camp  is  now  in  the  books,  and Quarterback  Drew Brees is clarifying comments he made about Saints' contract negotiations with tight end Jimmy Graham, saying the Saints would be fine  with  or  without  Graham.   Yesterday, Brees set the

record straight, saying he believes the black  and gold are a better team with Graham, and he's confident he will be back.
