News for Monday 072114

By Dave Graichen

 

Pineville City Marshal Larry Jeane (pronounced Gene) has passed away from injuries suffered Friday afternoon in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 107 in Pineville. Larry Jeane was in his third term as Marshal for Wards 9, 10 & 11, having held that office since 1997. Larry has also served as an adjunct instructor of Criminal Justice at Louisiana College, his alma mater. Larry Jeane has been a resident of Pineville, Louisiana for over 45 years and is a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Pineville, where he has served as a member of the Parish Council and the Finance Committee. In a press release from the Mayor’s office, Chief of staff Rich Dupree summed it up by saying “Larry loved to serve and our “Big Brother” will be GREATLY missed!” Funeral arrangements are pending. Larry Jeane was 68.

 

Pineville Police are investigating that Friday afternoon crash in which  city marshal Larry Jeane vehicle crossed the center line on Melrose Street and hit a vehicle carrying four people. The driver of the other vehicle and City Marshall Jeane had to be extricated from their vehicles. A witness to the accident  reported that they observed Marshal Jeane slumped over the steering wheel while his vehicle was crossing over into their lane of travel. No word on the condition of the surviving victims of the crash.

 

The Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office says they’ve arrested 13 people during an operation targeting prostitution. Lt. Tommy Carnline says their detectives became suspicious illegal sexual activity was taking place at local hotels when they came across internet advertisements that offered “massages”, “quality time”, and “anything you want”. Carnline says in one night, over 17-hundred dollars was paid and taken as evidence from those soliciting prostitution He says several of those arrested are from various parts of the state including Bossier City and suburban New Orleans.

 

The Wall Street Journal’s business website has listed Lafayette as the happiest city in America. In fact, the top 5 happiest cities are all in Louisiana. Houma was ranked number two, followed by Shreveport, Baton Rouge, and hold your heart, Alexandria. The list was compiled by a Harvard professor.

 

On a not so happy note, For the second month in a row, Louisiana’s jobless rate has grown, and payroll rates have slowed. The U.S. Labor Department reports that unemployment rates went from 4.9 percent to 5 percent in June, which is still well below the nation’s rate at 6.1 percent. The total number of unemployed people in the state is now just above 100 thousand.

 

State Farm has announced the hurricane deductible for home owner policy  holders will go up from 2 to 5 percent. Commissioner of Insurance Jim  Donelon met with State Farm officials and requested that they allow  policy holders in Louisiana the option to buy back down to the two  percent deductible in their policy by paying a higher insurance premium. Donelon says a typical policy holder with  a two percent hurricane deductible on a $150,000 home would pay $3,000  out of pocket before their insurance took effect...

 

 We're another day closer to the start of the school year and because of  the dispute over Common Core a standardized test is not in place for the  upcoming school year. Council for a Better Louisiana President Barry  Erwin says a lawsuit needs to be filed, so the judicial system can  determine who has constitutional authority over education policy. Meanwhile, good government group, the Public Affairs Research Council,  has issued a commentary criticizing Governor Jindal for creating a  "crisis in education." PAR President Robert Travis Scott says Jindal's  actions call into question whether he's a reliable leader.

 

Authorities in Sabine Parish are investigating an apparent homicide. The body 49-year-old James Paul Green was found  on the kitchen floor of his burnt home after firefighters extinguished the Blaze.

 

The three day qualifying period for the November 4th election is now  one month away. Thus far the US Senate race between the incumbent  Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu and Republican Congressman Bill  Cassidy has been an extremely close one according to most polls. LSU  Political Science Professor Dr. Wayne Parent says it's a toss up. In the race for the 6th Congressional District, Parent says even  though a majority of the voters tend to vote Republican, former  democratic governor Edwin Edwards will most certainly make the runoff.

 

A Shreveport researcher has a grant to help produce a potentially cancer  preventing gum. Dr. Cherie-Ann Nathan, with the LSU School of Medicine  in Shreveport, was awarded a $50,000 grant from the LSU System's LIFT2  Program. Nathan says she will use the funds to help produce a gum that  contains curcumin .  Curcumin is a food substance found in the spice turmeric that

reportedly has cancer-preventing qualities.

 

New research shows that stress can be passed on to another person as easily as the common cold. Michele Many, assistant professor of clinical psychiatry at the LSU School of Medicine says you shouldn’t let yourself be dragged down by someone else’s mood as it just spreads the stress.
