News for Wednesday 052114

By Dave Graichen


Word is construction to renovate the Rapides parish coliseum could begin this summer with construction to be completed in the later part of 2015. Alliance Design Group, headed up by Bill Tudor, is now in the review process with the state Fire Marshal’s Office and soon will submit plans to the city of Alexandria. Once permitting is finished, the Rapides Parish Police Jury can advertise for bids from contractors, a process that should take 30 to 45 days.


The Alexandria Police are investigating shooting at a the Monroe street Save-Most store yesterday afternoon at about 4:30. Police say one man was shot. His name and condition are unknown at this time. So far, there have been no arrests.


Flicking a cigarette  butt  out  of  your  car  window could get you slapped  with  a hefty fine and community service.   Governor  Bobby Jindal has signed  a  bill  into  law that labels cigarette butts as

litter and allows the fines.


New  Orleans  has lost its bid to host the 2018 Superbowl game.  The announcement was made today that Minneapolis will host the big game. At that meeting,  it  was  reported  that  Saints  owner  Tom Benson suffered  a fall from the podium, and was taken to the hospital.   A spokesman said Benson seems to be ok.


Lapolitics.com  reports the Jindal administration is on the verge of borrowing 56-million  dollars  from  the  state  treasury to pay for expenses  at  Louisiana’s  universities. Lapolitics reporter  Jeremy Alford  says  this is in addition to the 70-million  dollars  that's already been borrowed  to  pay  for  higher  ed, because contingency revenues have yet to materialize. The Jindal administration received a 30-million dollar loan from the state  treasury  in  April  and  then  another loan  for  40-million dollars.


The Louisiana Senate Tuesday approved legislation that would clarify how landowners could file “legacy lawsuits” seeking to clean up years-old environmental damage. Senators voted 27-12 to send Senate Bill 667 to Gov. Bobby Jindal for his signature turning it into law.


Schools  and  school districts across the  state  are  preparing  to receive the results from the "LEAP" and "iLEAP' tests.  "LEAP" tests are given to fourth  and  eighth  graders  and  factors in whether a

student  will  be  promoted or given remedial work.   "iLEAP"  tests assess student progress  in  grades  three,  five,  six,  and seven. The  Department  of Education will be releasing a report on

the numbers in the next few days.


The state House rejects legislation  that  would  have  allowed  the state  Department  of Education to survey high school students about their sexual behaviors.  The measure failed on a vote of 38 yeas and 55 nays. The bill's sponsor, Baton Rouge Representative Patricia  Smith, says the answers from these questionnaires could help experts develop programs  that  would  prevent  teenagers  from  engaging  in sexual behaviors.  But the House didn't see it that way and voted the legislation down.


The bill that would allow  raw  milk to be sold in Louisiana will be heard in a Senate committee today.  House Bill 1279, by Carencro Representative Stephen Ortego, passed  the  House on a 78-19 vote on May 7th.  Supporters say raw milk can be used to treat health  issues  such as asthma  and  osteoporosis.   40  states  allow  raw  milk  sales  to consumers.


Former Saints safety  Steve  Gleason  is  recovering from surgery to help him breathe as he continues his battle  with  the  degenerative brain  disease,  ALS.   Clare  Durrett  with  Team Gleason says  his recovery is going really well. Gleason tweeted after the operation. "I am persistent  like a banana tree.  Cut me down and I will be back before you know it"


A bill that would put curbs on the use of cellphones by motorists in school zones won final legislative approval Tuesday. The proposal, House Bill 370, bans the use of hand-held cellphones in schoolzones during posted hours if there are signs in each direction that spell out the prohibition.


If  you're  going to Baton Rouge  this  weekend  for  Bayou  Country Superfest your  hotel  might  have  a  shuttle to Tiger Stadium. The Capital Area Transit System is offering  service  from  several area and downtown hotels to Death Valley for just $10 round-trip  and  $5 one way.
