News For Friday 06/27/14


News for Friday 062714

By Dave Graichen

 

Fort Polk is one of 30 army bases around the country in jeopardy of  losing troops as the Army looks to cut 40-thousand troops from its  active duty force. Fort Polk Progress Chairman Michael Reese there's the  potential the military base in Vernon Parish could lose 6,500 troops.  The Army also considered a large troop reduction at Fort Polk last year,  but because of a big lobbying effort from local community and business  leaders the base only lost 250 troops. Reese says a similar organized response will be needed again this year.  Reese says the Army is now taking public comment on why Fort Polk and  other bases should not be subjected to a reduction of troops.

 

 Roosevelt Johnson is running for Alexandria city councilman in District 2. Johnson has previously served on the council for several years, but he does not currently hold a seat.  Johnson is known for his door-to-door campaigning, and he says voters can expect the same during the upcoming election. Incumbent Councilwoman Mitzi Lasalle has not announced her plans for this election which takes place in November.

 

The Special Committee on Military and Veterans Affairs will be holding  a meeting today to discuss issues their members and constituents are  having accessing healthcare facilities at the VA medical centers. New  Orleans Rep. Nick Larusso is the chairman of the committee. He says  they hope to hear from any of their vets who are having problems. Larusso says since VA healthcare is regulated by the federal  government, they hope to apply some pressure with expressing issues  concerning our veterans and members of our armed forces. Larusso says a change needs to be made with the system because the one  in place now is not working.

 

The Jindal Administration  says  there  shouldn't  be  any delays in scoring  of standardized tests retaken this summer by public  school students.   Superintendent  of  Education  John White said in a memo that summer retests cannot be scored right now  because  of Governor Jindal's  suspension  of  the  testing contract.  The administration says they have notified the testing  contractor  that the state will pay for test scoring without disruption.

 

The  Department  of  Education announces that for the second straight year the number of high  school  students  earning  a score of 18 or higher on the ACT has increased.  23,560 students in  the  class  of 2014  posted  a  college-going  score, which is an increase of 1,472 students  from 2013.  They say this  will  lead  to  more  graduates entering college without having to take remedial courses.

 

Louisiana State Police and other local law enforcement agencies say, due to about a 30% increase in fatalities, ther are enforcing a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to people who don’t wear their seat belts. Summer Heat 2014 is an enforcement effort targeting unrestrained drivers and passengers, reckless drivers and impaired drivers and it’s underway now.

 

Shreveport Fire Chief Craig Mulford was booked into the Caddo Parish Correctional  Center  today on five counts of malfeasance in office, handed down by a Caddo  Parish  grand jury, They were looking at the fire department's response into allegations of abuse by firefighters involving a mentally disabled man.  The chief denies the allegations that he covered up in the investigation.

 

It's  official,  the green light has been  given  for  a  ride-share program to begin in  Baton  Rouge.   It  allows  companies like Uber (oober) to provide a cab like service to those individuals seeking a ride.  New Orleans is also looking into whether they should  allow  Uber to conduct business there.
