News For Friday 06/20/14


News for Friday 062014

By Dave Graichen

 

It’s happened again, Louisiana College has been placed on probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. SACS  cited issues related to trustee board governance, institutional integrity, personnel policies and audit findings that pertain to some financial control matters and student financial aid. LC interim President Argile Smith says Fortunately, the issues don’t bring into question in any way the excellent classroom work being done by our professors and students. The issues have to do with administrative areas. Smith said he’ll work with key administrators at LC on preparation of a “monitoring report” before a SACS team visits the campus in April 2015.

 

State Civil Service director Shannon Templet has approved an employee layoff plan associated with the closure of LSU’s hospital in Pineville. The plan involves abolition of 123 positions at Huey P. Long Medical Center which is scheduled to close June 30. The hospital is the third LSU facility to close as a result of a Jindal administration plan to move public hospital care into private control.

 

The Pineville based  Cleco  Power's  customers  will  start to see a reduction in their electricity bills and get a refund because  a new rate  plan  was approved by the Louisiana Public Service Commission. The one time  refund  will  mean  an  average  of $46 for an average residential customer and should show up on September bills.

 

TheDeal.com  is reporting that Pineville-based  utility Cleco Corp. is exploring the possibility of a sale to a Canadian Corporation. Citing unnamed sources, the website dedicated to news on mergers and acquisitions reported Cleco has retained Goldman Sachs to advise on a sale. Cleco received an unsolicited bid from a Canadian group called Borealis Infrastructure.  Cleco has had no comment so far on the report. However, Cleco’s stock price jumped more than 6 percent Thursday to an all-time high of more than $56.

 

US House Republicans elected Jefferson Congressman Steve Scalise to be  the new Majority Whip, the number 3 position in the leadership. He  defeated Reps. Peter Roskam of Illinois and Marline Stutzman of  Indiana.  Scalise is the first Congressman from Louisiana to hold such a high  position since the early 70s.

 

According to a new report from the Violence Policy Center, Louisiana  once again leads the nation in gun-related deaths.  The report states  that Louisiana's gun-related death rate nearly doubles the US average.   The report used data from 2011, the most recent year such data is  available.  Louisiana is followed by Mississippi, Alaska, Wyoming, and  Montana on the list. Executive Director Josh Sugarmann says weak gun laws and high gun  ownership rates are contributing factors for the top 5 states.  The figures show that nearly 19 out of every 100,000 Louisiana citizens  died by gunfire in 2011. 

 

A quick thinking clerk at Tiger Truck Stop in Gross Tete blew the  whistle  on  a teenager abduction by a registered sex offender. The employee called  911 after recalling a TV story about a 16-year-old girl from  Florida who has been missing since last week. Once deputies spotted the suspect, forty-one year-old Steven Patrick Myers fled the scene and  led them on a chase to Lafayette, where he crashed his vehicle and stabbed  his  victim, and apparently stabbed himself. Sixteen year-old Ashley Lyon is in the hospital in serious condition but stable condition.

 

The  Wednesday  debate  between  Governor  Bobby   Jindal   and  the Department of Education over Common Core has left many people  in  a state of confusion.  So what's next?  Council for a Better Louisiana President Barry Erwin says he feels the DOE and BESE will stand firm

and  continue  with  the  implementation  of  the  national academic standards.   Even  though  Jindal  announced  he's  working   toward removing  Common  Core  from  Louisiana, Erwin doesn't see a way the governor would legally be able to do that. Erwin says the education system  in  Louisiana  now  has  no  active contract to buy standardized tests for next year.

 

Governor  Bobby  Jindal  signed legislation that will create the WISE fund, which is  a  $40  million  pool of money for colleges and universities  linked  to  research and workforce  development.   LSU

System President and Chancellor  Dr.  F  King  Alexander sys with so many high tech jobs coming to Louisiana, this money  will  be put to good use. The WISE fund gives every public college or university in the  state a  chance  to  collect  a  share  of  this  money  based on how many graduates  they produce in high-demand fields like computer  science and engineering.

 

Louisiana was  once  again  featured  on  "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central.  The show sent correspondent Al Madrigal to the Bayou State for  a segment that aired last night entitled  "Chicken  boxing  vs. cockfighting".   The  piece  featured  interviews  with  New Orleans Senator JP Morrell and Opelousas Senator Elbert Guillory.  It can be viewed online at The Daily Show dot com.
