With school just about to begin in Rapides parish, finishing touches are being put on close to $40 million in construction projects. Martin Park Elementary will open its doors to students again on Aug. 12 after a fire in October 2012 sent faculty and students to the former Hadnot-Hayes Elementary building on Lincoln Road. That project carried with it a $6.7 million price tag. Cafeteria work will continue past the opening of school at several facilities across the district.

 

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal traveled to the Texas/Mexico border on Monday in response to the spike in undocumented immigrant children from Central America illegally crossing the border alone. Also on the trip to McAllen, Texas, are Louisiana House Speaker Chuck Kleckley, R-Lake Charles, and State Police Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson. Following a tour and briefing, Edmonson said he’s concerned about the impact the influx of immigrants could have on safety in Louisiana, as well as public services. Edmonson said in at least three locations they saw where people were trying to make their way into Texas and there was no one there to stop them.

Drivers across the state are now seeing gas prices around $3.30 for a gallon of regular.

LSU junior safety Jalen Mills participated in team practice Monday afternoon after the East Baton Rouge District Attorney reduced the charges against him from felony second degree battery to misdemeanor simple battery.  The charges stem from a May incident where Mills allegedly punched a woman near his apartment.  DA Hillar Moore says the felony charge was the arrest charge and his office believes the misdemeanor charge is appropriate after reviewing evidence and reports.

 

A large percentage of Shreveport Public Works solid waste and disposal service employees did not show up for work Monday. That left over 2 dozen trash trucks unmanned for Monday collections. One employee says workers were told there were no funds for pay raises, and recently, the city bought two street sweepers for about $600 thousand dollars.
