News For Friday 05/30/14


News for Friday 053014

By Dave Graichen

 

Governor Bobby Jindal signed a couple of bills  into  law to support Veterans late Wednesday. One would increase information available to doctors  to  improve  health issues that service members often  deal with.  The  other would expand  residential  lease  protections  for military members and their families.

 

There's  a new law waiting to be signed by the governor  that  would allow state  lawmakers  to carry concealed weapons in areas that any other peace officer could.   That  would  include  several locations labeled as "gun free" zones. If it is signed, they would  be able to pack heat in public buildings , parades and polling places.

 

A vacation turned deadly for a 21 year old Pineville man. Authorities at Navarre beach Florida say Nathan Hughey drowned while swimming with his sister in rough waters. The sister was able to make it to shore safely. Hughey was a  graduate of Pineville High School and was a student at Louisiana Tech University at the time of his death. The accident happened yesterday.

 

The city of Alexandria’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day is set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Alexandria City Complex, 2021 Industrial Park Road (under the big red roof).

Citizens are encouraged to bring in Household chemicals, Automotive chemicals, Garden and pool chemicals, Pharmaceuticals and Household recyclables. Not welcome, Ammunition, tires, explosives, commercial waste and laboratory waste. Again the event is tomorrow 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Alexandria city complex.

 

Gov. Bobby Jindal is going to sign into law today a bill called "The  Right to Try" Act which would allow terminally ill patients to  access experimental medications that could save their life. The Goldwater Institute designed this measure and External Affairs Vice  President Victor Riches says  The Right to Try Act enables people with very little  time left to receive potentially life-saving medications that have  been deemed safe by the FDA but are years away from being approved for market.

 

Governor  Jindal has signed into law a bill that adds domestic abuse to the criteria  for  immediate divorce.  The new law waives the 180 day waiting period for  a divorce involving domestic abuse.  It also makes spousal support mandatory.

 

The legislature has given final  legislative  approval to a law that would  extend  the  drivers license renewal time to  every  6  years instead of 4.  Baton  Rouge  Senator  Dan Claitor says he decided to

draft this legislation after hearing so  many  complaints  about the wait time at the DMV. The  6  year  fee would be increased, but over time it would end up being the same amount of money.

 

The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's office reports a high school teacher and track coach is under  arrest  for his alleged sexual involvement with a 16-year-old male student. They  say 37-year-old Derrick Nesby of  New  Orleans, the educator from UL Bourgeois  High  School,  was arrested and booked with felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

 

A  former  worker  at the Department of Children and Family Services faces up to 10 years  in  prison  for  using a state issued purchase card  for personal use.  34-year-old Delrice  Augustus  has  pleaded guilty  in  federal  court  to  the  crime.  State Inspector General Stephen  Street says Augustus defrauded  DCFS  out  of  as  much  as 200-thousand dollars. Augustus has admitted to using government purchase cards to buy home entertainment  electronics,  a  dishwater, and other personal items.

 

Former  New  Orleans  Mayor  Ray  Nagin  has been granted a delay in sentencing  by  U.S.  District  Court Judge Helen  Ginger  Berrigan. Nagin  was  scheduled  for  sentencing  June  11  on  20  counts  of corruption,  including bribery,  conspiracy,  money  laundering  and fraud.  The new date is July 2nd.

 

The House has given final passage  of a bill requiring women who are seeking  an  abortion  to  receive  a pamphlet  that  explains  the potential   psychological  effects  of  going   through   with   the

procedure. The bill passed 87-0.

 

The Catfish Institute is raising concerns about the mislabeling of  seafood products in restaurants.  They say studies by media and consumer  organizations find as much as 25 to 50 percent of seafood is mislabeled.  Institute spokesperson Jeff McCord says this happens frequently with  catfish.  Often Vietnamese catfish-type species are offered on menus as catfish. However,  it is against the law. Only an American  species of channel catfish may be labeled as catfish  for any marketing purposes, including menus. 

 

Governor Jindal has signed a measure that will allow hunters in the  state to use a sound suppressor on their guns for recreational hunting.  The legislation will go into effect August 1.  The bill's sponsor, Metairie Representative Cameron Henry says the use of silencers is better for the shooter's hearing and  mitigates noise complaints.
