News For Monday 06/09/14


News for Monday 060914

By Dave Graichen

 

Miss Nevada Nia Sanchez, a fourth-degree black belt in the Korean martial art of taekwondo, was crowned Miss USA 2014 Sunday night in Baton Rouge. The 24-year-old from Las Vegas beat out 50 other contestants from all the states.

 

The National Journal  reports, an independent super PAC linked to U.S. Sen. David Vitter’s bid for Louisiana governor picked up a new big contributor: Vitter’s U.S. Senate war chest. David Vitter for U.S. Senate gave the Vitter-friendly Fund for Louisiana’s Future a contribution of $100,000 on Feb. 14, according to a filing with the Federal Elections Commission. The Journal went on to say, Through a super PAC and some creative lawyering, Vitter and his allies appear to have found a way to redirect all of that money to support his gubernatorial campaign, and in doing so, they’ve pioneered a new method for politicians nationwide to get around old prohibitions on spending federal money on state races and vice versa.” Super PACs, political action committees, can accept unlimited campaign contributions as long as they operate independent of the candidates they support.

 

Governor  Bobby  Jindal  has  a  busy  travel  schedule  this month, visiting  key  presidential  primary  states.  Over the weekend he was  in South  Carolina  and  next weekend he plans  to  be  in  Iowa.   The governor  is also scheduled  to  speak  at  the  Faith  and  Freedom Coalition's  Road to Majority conference in Washington, DC June 19th through the 21st.

 

A recent decision by a federal judge ordering officials at Angola to install air-conditioning on death-row has been put on hold.  The 5th Circuit  Court  of  Appeals'  ruling  halts  implementation until an

appeals  panel  reviews  US  District  Court Judge  Brian  Jackson's decision.

 

Governor  Jindal  has  signed  into  law  a  bill  that  will  allow optometrists to perform certain surgeries.  Ophthalmologists strongly opposed  this  measure  saying  optometrists  don't  have the proper training  to  perform  the  procedures  at  issue.   But  Dr.  Jared Sandefur,   Executive  Director  of  the  Optometry  Association  of Louisiana, says  optometrists  throughout the country are authorized to perform these procedures and have an exemplary safety record. Sandefur says it will probably be about  six months before the first optometrists   are   trained,  then  certified  to   perform   these procedures.

 

A bill that has now been signed into law by  Governor  Bobby  Jindal would  give  public schools the right to put up a nativity scene  or Christmas tree  during  the  Holidays. Supporters of the measure say this would keep Louisiana in line  with  an already US Supreme Court decision  that  allows  such  displays.  But they  couldn't  include anything  that  would point to a specific religion.  The  law  takes

effect August 1.

 

In the final hours of the legislative session, lawmakers passed a $53 million fee hike on drivers who don’t maintain car insurance as required by law. Most of the money expected to be raised is slate to go to boost the salaries of Louisiana State Police troopers. Other beneficiaries of the fee hike include local sheriffs and district attorneys.  The measure raises fees for the reinstatement of driving privileges if a driver has been caught without insurance, boosts penalties for not carrying proof of insurance in a vehicle and requires a minimum $75 fine for someone caught in violation of the law requiring insurance on top of the other fines and penalties.

 

Governor Jindal signs into law a measure that provides less government  interference for those who sell baked goods like breads, pies and jams  made in their own kitchen and make less than $20,000 a year doing so. These individuals are now exempt from some  state licensing standards.  The new law does require a warning label on home based goods as a way of  notifying the consumer a product was made in an uninspected kitchen.

 

Governor Jindal has signed legislation banning the use of hand held cell  phones while driving in an active school zone.  The law will only be  enforced in school zones where visible signs are posted indicating the  ban. 

 

More information is coming out about the transgender woman who was held  captive as a sex slave in Natchitoches Parish. Sheriff Victor Jones is  not releasing the victim's name, but says she's in her early 50s and  came to Louisiana from Minnesota after meeting her eventual captors  online.  Investigators say the relationship between the victim and the 3 people  arrested was consensual at first. But, the relationship deteriorated to the point where the victim was chained outside without any clothes, food or water. Jones says the three people arrested are in the Natchitoches  Parish Detention Center and the investigation continues.

 

In another example of how Hollywood South is the place for film making,  one of the former Dukes of Hazzard has built is own movie studio in Livingston  Parish. John Schneider, aka Bo Duke says he's now directing films out of a location in  Holden, where he also lives.  Schneider has already directed the movie, "Smothered", at locations  around downtown Baton Rouge and at his 58-acre studio but it has not  yet been released.
