News For Tuesday 072214

By Dave Graichen

 

Lecompte Fire Chief Billy Norris died Monday afternoon in his home. Town officials said Norris had a massive heart attack after he returned home from the scene of a fire. Norris had been with the Lecompte Volunteer Fire Department for more than a decade. He was 62. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.

 

Funeral arrangements have been announced for long time Pineville City Marshall Larry Jeane, who died over the weekend after a Friday auto accident.  Visitation will be Wednesday from 5 p.m.-9 p.m. at Hixson Brothers in Pineville with a wake at 7 p.m. Visitation at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Pineville will be from 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday with a funeral mass at 10 a.m. Graveside services will be in Many.

 

A lawsuit has been filed by 17 lawmakers challenging the methods the state used to adopt the Common Core education standards. The suit alleges the BESE board and the State Department of Education did not follow the Administrative Procedure Act. Meanwhile, the stand-off over Common Core between Governor Bobby Jindal and State Superintendent of Education John White continues.

 

Republican US Senator David Vitter files legislation that he says will stop the flow of illegal border crossings. Between October and this past June, an estimated 57-thousand unaccompanied children were apprehended by Border Patrol. The Obama administration says that number could reach 90-thousand by the end of September. Vitter says law enforcement of immigration laws for decades has encouraged more immigrants to come here illegally. Vitter admits his legislation will have a difficult time getting a debate in the Senate, because Senate leader Harry Reid will not bein support of this legislation.

 

The tens of thousands of unaccompanied children crossing over into neighboring Texas is raising concerns Louisiana may face an immigration problem of it’s own. Denham Springs Representative Valarie Hodges, a member of the House Committee on Criminal Justice, is calling on the state leadership to develop a plan of action for immigration in Louisiana. She says the crisis next door is spreading to states across the country. With Texas shelters currently overflowing with the children, Hodges is concerned that Louisiana facilities may be used to house the immigrants.

 

Covington Representative Paul Hollis has announced that he is endorsing Baton Rouge Congressman Bill Cassidy in Louisiana’s US Senate race. Hollis, a Republican, dropped out of the race last week.

 

Alcohol and Tobacco Control Commissioner Troy Hebert is facing a federal racial discrimination lawsuit alleging he made working conditions unbearable for African-American employees. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of three employees. Hebert says it is not a secret he inherited a troubled agency with problem employees, but he’s very proud of the way they’ve turned things around. The attorney for the employees n question alleges Hebert was trying to force out his clients in every conceivable way. Hebert denies the allegations.

 

It was a violent weekend in the Crescent City as police report a total of nine people are recovering from gunshot wounds throughout the metro area. New Orleans Police say the gun violence ranged from New Orleans East to South Carrolton in broad daylight. While the city’s murder rate is down from last year, New Orleans Police Chief Ronal Serpas says it’s clear that NOPD needs more police officers.

 

A Grant Parish woman has been arrested after she was standing in the middle of Parsonage Road, yelling, holding a knife an throwing rocks at passing cars. When a deputy arrived, she dropped the knife, took a swing at him, and ran away. When that deputy caught up to her, fifty year-old Connie Pennington of Colfax became violent. She was arrested on numerous charges.

 

The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Donaldsonville man after finding his wife shot to death at their home. Police Chief Tony Bacala says deputies responded to the residence after receiving a call 10AM Monday morning. When deputies arrived they found 27-year-old Shella Howard dead in her bathroom, having been shot several times. 31-year-old Jaris Howard was found shortly thereafter and arrested without incident. He says the couple’s six year old child was in the home at the time and heard the gunshots, but did not witness the incident. Bacala says Jaris Howard is facing multiple charges
