News For Thursday 05/08/14

News for Thursday 050814

By Dave Graichen


The NFL draft happens tonight in New York City and a lot of Louisiana  eyes are on Odell Beckham, Jr. and the New Orleans Saints.  Football  Analyst Mike Detillier says we shouldn't have to wait long to hear  Beckham's name.  With the 27th pick in round one, the Saints, realistically, do not have a chance to draft Beckham.  But Detillier says with that pick, the  Saints should have some pretty good options. The Saints have a total  of seven picks in this year's draft.


The city of Alexandria is suing a company who got $50,000 from the city to produce a movie based on Bonnie and Clyde. Problem is, the move was never made. A lawsuit filed Wednesday by the city in 9th Judicial District Court names Cypress Moon Productions, Inc., and Tonya Holly as defendants. Two other Cenla agencies,  the Alexandria-Pineville Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Greater Alexandria Economic Development Authority, each put up $25,000 for the project.


A bill that would allow optometrists to expand their practice and  perform certain surgeries gets approval from The House. The  legislation is by Denham Springs Representative Roger Pope who says  the measure is not about politics. He says it's about giving the  people of Louisiana better access to eye care services. The vote was 66-30 and the bill heads to the Senate  for further consideration.


Bills that address domestic violence in Louisiana are close to final legislative passage.  One of the measures would  prohibit an alleged abuser  under a protective order from possessing a  firearm  and  if convicted of domestic abuse battery, then you can't have a gun for a decade.   It  received Senate approval and goes back to the House for agreement on Senate amendments.


House  approved  legislation  that would require abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby  hospitals  passed in the Senate Health  and Welfare Committee Wednesday. The bill had no opposition and now heads to the Senate floor.


Farmers may soon be able to sell their raw milk directly to consumers  under legislation that got House approval on Wednesday. HB1279 is by  Carencro Representative Stephen Ortego who says he was approached by  many of his constituents who said they would like to be able to  purchase raw milk from their neighbors who have cows. The vote was 77-19 and now heads to the Senate for further debate.


A bill that would require teachers and most  new  state employees to wait a little longer before they can retire and receive  benefits is close   to   final  legislative  passage.  The  measure  by  Slidell

Representative  Kevin  Pearson  raises the retirement age from 60 to 62-years-old.


Two bills that would have put regulations on  the  use  of red light and speed cameras failed to get approval on the House floor.  One of the  measures  would require local voter approval for a town or city to have cameras that issue tickets through the mail.


The state Senate Health Committee approves a health care plan that's called  the conservative alternative to the Affordable Care Act.  It was written  by  Governor  Bobby  Jindal  to  be used on the federal level, but democrat State Senator Ben Nevers of  Bogalusa is pushing the bill in the State Legislature because he says  it  will  be good for Louisiana. Jindal published his national health care plan on his "America Next" website  which  promotes conservative policies that differ from  the

Obama administration.


An  Independence  man,   known   for  impersonating  Elvis  Presley, surrendered to authorities after  an  arrest  warrant was issued for sex crimes involving children.  40 year-old Jason Bagilio is charged

with eight counts of felony carnal knowledge of  a  juvenile  and  10 counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile.  No bond has been set.


A young man from Plaquemine becomes the victim of a gunshot wound to the head near a camp in Iberville Parish. His parents found the body of  26  year-old  Kye  Boudreaux Wednesday. Authorities  are piecing together the evidence surrounding the incident. 22 year old Detrell Scott of Plaquemine has been arrested. Deputies say he confessed to robbing and fatally shooting Boudreaux.
