News For Monday 06/23/14


News for Monday 062314

By Dave Graichen

 

A very close call this weekend for Chamber President Deborah Randolph  and former mayor Ned Randolph as they were traveling to Baton Rouge on highway 71. A collision between an SUV and a sedan in the oncoming lane tossed the sedan across the roadway and caused it to land on the hood of the Randolph’s car. Both Ned and Deborah received minor injuries, but miraculously survived, as did the drivers of the other vehicles.  

 

Summer officially arrived over the weekend. State climatologist Barry Keim says  the climate prediction center is calling for hotter and dryer conditions for Louisiana this summer. An El Niño weather condition could form a little later than originally expected this summer but will likely still be in time to help put a dampening effect on tropical storm development.

 

Governor Bobby Jindal has signed the  state's  $24.6  billion dollar operating  budget. In the end, out of all of the expenditures approved by lawmakers, he only vetoed eight. The new fiscal year begins on the first of July.

 

Some are wondering if our Governor is advocating a coup. Gov. Bobby Jindal on Saturday night accused President Barack Obama and other Democrats of waging wars against religious liberty and education and said that a rebellion is brewing in the U.S. with people ready for “a hostile takeover” of the nation’s capital. Jindal spoke at the annual conference hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a group led by longtime Christian activist Ralph Reed. Organizers said more than 1,000 evangelical leaders attended the three-day gathering. Republican officials across the political spectrum concede that evangelical voters continue to play a critical role in GOP politics.

 

According to a new survey, Former Louisiana  Governor  Edwin Edwards leads  a  poll  for the US House of Representatives open primary  in November, but he  trails  in  a  head-to-head  against two potential rivals  in  a  runoff. The poll by Glascock Group indicated  Edwards would lead in the  open  primary  with  the support of 32 percent of those questioned, but either Republican Paul  Dietzel  or Republican State  Senator  Dan Claitor could win in a possible runoff  match-up according to the report.

 

As we approach the heart of the summer driving season, prices at the gas  pump are going up.  The price for a gallon of regular gasoline in  Louisiana has risen nearly ten cents in the past week.  AAA fuel analyst  Mike Right says gas prices typically begin to lower after Memorial Day  and remain steady throughout the summer. But, Right says anxiety over  what's going on in the middle east is costing  the price of energy  goes up.  The statewide average price for a gallon of regular gasoline in  Louisiana is about $3.50.   It appears we will be stuck paying above average gas prices through the  summer. 

 

According  to  a new  state-by-state  scorecard  released  by  AARP, Louisiana ranks  37th  in  the  nation  when it comes to meeting the long-term care needs of older residents.  Andrew  Muhl,  director of advocacy  for  AARP  Louisiana, says the bottom line is that  family caregivers need more help. Muhl says most Louisianians  want  to  live independently at home as they age, most with the help of unpaid family  caregivers.  He  says more needs to be done to help older residents achieve that goal.

 

Tony the Tiger can stay. Governor Bobby Jindal signed legislation on Friday that  provides  an  exception  for the live exotic animal who lives  at  the Tiger Truck Stop in Grosse  Tete.  The  Animal  Legal Defense Fund, vowed to challenge the new law in court.

 

Louisiana State Police says you can now apply online for a concealed handgun permit. Sgt. Nick Manale says citizens can now utilize the a special  website   that's  been  set  up  to  submit  a  CCP  online application. He says  any  paperwork  involved  can  be  scanned and emailed to LSP but this should make things a lot easier. The  Louisiana  Concealed  Handgun  Permit  website can be found  at chp-web.dps.louisiana.gov.

 

The  Lafayette  Police  Department says the man who led police on a high speed chase on I-10  this  week with a missing 16-year-old girl from Florida has been released from  the  hospital  and  booked into jail. They say 41-year-old Steven P Myers is charged with  attempted first  degree murder. The victim, Ashley Lyon, apparently suffered 10 stab  wounds  and  remains  in  serious  but  stable  condition at a Lafayette hospital.

 

WDSU in New Orleans is reporting that friends,  family  members  and  even  some governmental  employees  have written letters to U.S. Distrcit Judge Ginger Berrigan, asking for  leniency  for  former New Orleans Mayor Ray  Nagin  in  the  sentencing  for  bribe-taking   and   receiving

kick-backs.  Sentencing is scheduled for July 9th.

 

As  part  of  the  fight to stop child abuse and child  trafficking, Governor Bobby Jindal  has  signed  SB 586 into law that creates the new crime of "re-homing" children. That would involve an transaction

or action that an individual might do  to  to  avoid or divest their parental  reponsibilty  by  placing  the  child  in the  home  of  a non-relative  without court approval. For people who  actually  sell children, the Governor says that will be prosecute these individuals to the fullest extent of the law.

 

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office recovered two bodies Sunday evening on the Upper Amite River near Watson and deputies said the two likely drowned while tubing with a group of friends.

The two victims were 26 year old Joshua Brantley of Hammond, and 26 year old Philip White of Marrero. Authorities say alcohol and drugs are not suspected to be a factor in the incident.

Deputies began a search at about 2 p.m. Sunday following reports of two people missing who had been tubing on the river with about 10 other friends

 

A woman who argued with her boyfriend late Saturday was stabbed to death on Grand Isle beach in front of her year-old daughter. Grand Isle Police and Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies captured 28 year old Randy Paul Marcel of Chauvin, after he ran from scene of the stabbing. Marcel and the victim had been dating for about five years.
