News for Thursday 050114

By Dave Graichen


The  Rapides  Parish Sheriff's office says the body of a white  male was discovered  around  6:30am  yesterday  morning  near  Airbase Road.  Lt. Tommy Carnline said they found the unresponsive  victim lying next to the road. The man has been identified  as  27 year old Leon Matthew Jeffers  of Alexandria, police said. Detectives say the cause of death has not been determined and an autopsy will be performed.


After  getting some tips about some suspicious  activity,  Louisiana State Police  have arrested a central Louisiana man on drug charges. The suspect - 49 year-old Stephen Holsomback - was allegedly selling drugs out of a Store- N- Lock business he owns in Alexandria. Authorities say they discovered over 10 pounds of marijuana, over 20 ounces of meth,  over  4 ounces of cocaine and over $4,000 in cash.  Holsomback was booked into  the Rapides Parish Detention Center.


 The second weekend of the 45th annual New Orleans Jazz Festival kicks  off today. There will be some big musical talents performing this week  like, Christina Aguilera, The Wailers, Chaka Khan, Trey Songz, and Bruce  Springsteen. Executive Producer of Jazz Fest Quint Davis says this is  one of the best weekend line ups they've ever had.


The state's largest ever seat belt campaign targeting pickup truck  drivers starts today. It's called "Buckle Up in your Truck." Lt. Col.  John LeBlanc, with the Highway Safety Commission says every year surveys  find pickup truck drivers have the lowest level of seat belt use of all  other vehicles.  LeBlanc says this campaign will increase police patrols and checkpoints  dedicated to checking for motorists wearing their seat belts, especially  in pickup trucks. He says they are optimistic that this push will help  save lives.


The  bill  that  would legalize medical marijuana failed in a Senate committee yesterday 6-2.  Several  people  spoke in favor of the bill by New Iberia Senator Fred Mills including  patients  who say this form of  therapy  is  the only thing out there that would help  alleviate their suffering. But Attorney General Buddy Caldwell feels this is a path toward allowing recreational use. He also says  they have a huge problem with the fact that this drug is illegal.


The  House  approved  a bill that would allow Louisianans  to  have their driver’s license renewed after 6 years instead of 4.  Under the bill, the fee for a driver’s license would grow from $28.50 to $42.75 to cover the extra years renewal.


A House Committee shot down a bill that would have prohibited drones from  flying  over  "critical  infrastructure"  in  Louisiana.   The legislation  is  by  Baton  Rouge  Senator  Bodi  White who says the measure  is  meant  to protect places that are crucial  to  national security. But opponents  argued  the  Senate backed bill would limit certain  organizations,  including  media,   from   monitoring   and

reporting on possible environmental disasters. The bill failed by  a 7-4 vote.


A bill that would authorize the City Council in New Orleans to put a new  hotel  occupancy  tax  on a future ballot passed out of a House Committee Wednesday.  Mayor Mitch  Landrieu wants the extra money to improve public safety in New Orleans. Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne, who is against the tax, says   if  this  bill  goes forward, people who  visit  New Orleans would be paying the highest  taxes  in the nation to stay in their hotel.


A bill that would prohibit most public employees  from  paying union dues through a deduction on their paychecks failed to get passed the House Labor Committee.


Legislation  is  nearing final passage that would allow both  active and retired law enforcement  officers to carry concealed handguns in nearly every place open to the public.


The Senate Commerce Committee  gave  support  to  a  bill that would require  annual  inspections  of  elevators  to  make sure they  are operating  properly.   The bill, sponsored by Bogalusa  Senator  Ben Nevers, is supported by elevator manufacturers.


The  man  accused  of killing his roommate’s dog because  the  animal ripped up his furniture,  is  now in jail on animal cruelty charges. The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's  Office  says  twenty-three  year-old Shaun  Parsons  allegedly  killed the dog by putting an empty potato chip bag over the animal's head at the home in Greenwell Springs.


The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office have identified human remains that were  found  in  Hammond  earlier this month.  The remains were those of 31-year-old Jonathon Gordan of Loranger, who disappeared on New Year's Eve.  Gordan was an Iraq  War  veteran  and  bronze medal recipient.  The investigation of Gordan's disappearance and death is ongoing.
