News For Thursday 06/19/14


News for Thursday 061914

By Dave Graichen

 

In case you haven’t heard, the OK Allen bridge has a new name and that announcement has several local and state officials upset. It appears, in the waning hours of the past legislative session, the house approved a conference committee report for HB 1140.  Inserted into the report, by State Rep. Herbert Dixon,  was language to change the name of the O.K. Allen Bridge spanning the Red River in Alexandria to the Curtis-Coleman Bridge.  With the exception of Dixon, this was done without the knowledge of all Central Louisiana Legislators. Several are now asking the governor to veto the bill.

 

Chief Judge Harry Randow of the 9th Judicial District says he will qualify to run in November 4th election despite a 70-year-old cap on age. Randow notes there will be a proposed constitutional amendment on the November ballot, which lifts that ban. That would then permit him to be elected and take office January 1st. Several candidates have already announced for that seat. Campaign Insiders report several of those candidates my drop out of the race. Randow is chief judge of the district.

 

Until recently, he was a major supporter, But yesterday Governor  Jindal took steps to remove Louisiana from the Common Core education  standards.  Jindal  has  informed  the makers of the PARCC  exam  that  Louisiana is no longer committed to  implementing their test, which is  tied  to  Common  Core. Jindal says the Common Core allows the federal government to establish  education standards in Louisiana.  Superintendent  of  Education John White responded  to  the  Jindal

announcement by saying  the  state  department  of  education will continue to move ahead with the program’s implementation. White  says  Jindal does not have the authority to remove  Louisiana

from Common Core. BESE board president Chaz Roemer seconded that thought.

 

A bill to require President Barack Obama to approve the stalled Keystone XL pipeline cleared a U.S. Senate committee Wednesday, but Republicans, who generally support the project, denounced the move as a political stunt by committee Chairwoman and Democrat Mary Landrieu. The committee-approved bill, sponsored by Landrieu and John Hoeven, R-North Dakota, would clear the way for completion of the final, northern section of pipeline, which would link Canadian tar-sands oilfields to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast. The committee’s decision advances the measure toward the Senate floor, and Landrieu said she will push for a vote there.

 

State Police arrested four former Lafayette Parish Sheriff  deputies for their alleged roles in the beating of an inmate at the Lafayette Parish  Correctional  Center.  Authorities  say the inmate sustained serious bodily injury and spent several days in a local hospital.

 

A group of environmentalists are planning to march from  Grand  Isle to  the  governor's  mansion  to  protest  the legislation signed by Governor Jindal that nullifies a lawsuit against  oil  companies for

coastal  damages. The march is expected to begin Saturday  and  take eight days to complete.

 

Police  in  Washington  say  a  12-year-old  boy  is recovering in a hospital  after  a  pit  bull attack. They say the dog's  owner  was arrested for allegedly violating the town's pit bull ordinance which

says the dogs have to be kept  on leashes with muzzles or in a crate at all times.

 

Police are questioning a person of interest  in  connection  with an Tuesday night  shooting  death  of  an Opelousas man.  Nineteen year-old Donnie Sam was found with three gunshot  wounds, and pronounced dead at the scene.

 

The popular False River Fourth of July Boat Parade is back on, just days after the event’s organizers announced they’d have to cancel it this year. New Roads Mayor Robert Myer said Wednesday that the city is stepping in to take over and ensure the popular tradition continues, although it will be on Saturday, July 5, this year. The family that has organized the event for the past decade had said they had to give it up because of new pressure from the state to obtain liability insurance and provide adequate security patrols for the safety of participants, a burden they weren’t prepared to shoulder.

 

Athlon  Sports  has  ranked  LSU's Tiger Stadium as the best college football stadium in the Southeastern  Conference.   Texas  A-and-M's Kyle  Field was ranked second followed by Georgia's Sanford Stadium. Athlon  Sports  polled 12 SEC experts to come up with their results. Eight of the 12 voted Tiger Stadium number one.

 

A former Louisiana prep football star is charged with murder. Janzen Jackson, who played at Barbe and Carencro,  allegedly  strangled his mom's boyfriend to death. Jackson, who played at Tennessee  and  was recruited by LSU, pleaded not guilty.

 

A former Harrah's Casino  Black  Jack  dealer  is  being  sought for allegedly   cheating  the  Casino  out  of  some  $32,000  in  cash. Twenty-four  year-old  Breanna  Lewis of New Orleans was observed on surveillance video of awarding bets  to  four  different patrons who appeared to know her.
