News For Friday 06/13/14


News for Friday 061314

By Dave Graichen

 

Project Road Warrior traveled through Alexandria Wednesday during its inaugural cross-country event. Riders left Seattle on June 5.  The Warriors are made up of eight riders, all of whom have been wounded in some way while serving our country. 35 year old Air Force pilot Craig Anders, one of the organizers says, “A lot of (rehabilitation programs) don’t focus on the person. With this, the ride is the rehab. He says they are giving them back a little freedom and independence.” The riders will hang up their helmets in Tampa, Fla., on Saturday.“

 

Walter Guillory, who served as executive director of the Lafayette and Opelousas housing authorities, was sentenced Wednesday to 28 months in federal prison for bribery and bid law violations. Guillory also had central Louisiana connections as well, working for  the Alexandria Housing Authority from December of 1994, to June  of 1998. He also served as assistant director of the Boys & Girls Club of Central Louisiana in the late 1990s.

 

A new poll by the Glascock Group shows a dead heat developing in the 5th  Congressional District between incumbent Congressman Vance McAllister  and state Senator Neil Riser.  In a hypothetical runoff, the survey  gives Riser 53 percent while McAllister comes in at 47 percent.  Pollster Darrell Glascock says McAllister's showing is no big surprise.  Riser has told lapolitics-dot-com he's expecting to make an announcement  next week.  McAllister has said he's leaving his options open at this  time.  The poll does suggest voters are willing to give McAllister a  second chance.  Glascock says when it comes to politics, Louisianians,  historically, have been able to forgive and forget.

 

The Louisiana Federation of Teachers says 87-percent of the teachers  they surveyed say their schools do not have the technology required for  all students to take the PARCC exam, which is an online exam tied to the  new Common Core standards. LFT spokesperson Les Landon says the survey also found most teachers believe their students do not have the computer skills necessary to take online tests. He says  this could pose a problem when it comes to judging what a student really knows based on an online test.

 

 Governor Bobby Jindal travels to Iowa this weekend to speak at a  Republican  Party of Iowa fundraiser tonight, further fueling  speculation of a run for the White House. Tonight Jindal is the headline speaker a Road To Victory Reception in  Des Moines.  He will also speak at Iowa's GOP state convention on  Saturday. 

 

Governor  Bobby  Jindal  has  signed  legislation that would require abortion doctors to have active admitting  privileges  at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic.  Opponents of this bill say  it could

force  the  closure  of  up to four of the five abortion clinics  in Louisiana which would lead  women  to  choose  an  unsafe  method of ending a pregnancy.  Executive Director of Louisiana Right to  Life,

Benjamin  Clapper, says if these clinics have to close it means they are sub-standard  and that means they are not able to reach a higher standard of care.

 

The  ratings  for  the  season  premiere of Duck Dynasty are out, and according to overnight research, the show Wednesday night - even with the appearance of Governor Bobby Jindal  -  lost about 4 million viewers when compared to the season premiere of last year.

 

A 3-year-old Lake Arthur  boy's  death  has been ruled a homicide by the Acadia Parish Coroner.  Authorities say when Keaghyn Parsons was visiting his stepmother on May 19 in Evangeline,  he collapsed.  The boy was taken to a local hospital where he died.  The  Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating

 

Lafayette native Matthew Mosely completed a 15-hour swim across Lake Ponchartrain  yesterday.  It's believed he is the first person  ever  to complete the swim.   The  47-year-old  spent six months training for the 26-mile swim that started at West End  Lighthouse  and  ended in Mandeville.  Mosely  made  the  swim to highlight the restoration efforts made by the Lake Ponchartrain Basin Foundation.

 

The  attorney  for  LSU  defensive  back Jalen Mills is speaking out about  the  arrest of his client on second-degree  battery  charges, where it is alleged  he punched a woman in the mouth. Attorney Brent Stockstill says his client  is  innocent,  and  there  were  several people around when this incident took place and people should not be so quick to judge. Mills has been suspended indefinitely from the LSU football team.  A bond hearing is set for late July.

 

According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend  about $7.4 billion dollars less on dad for Father's Day than they did  for mom on Mother's Day. They predict dad will get an average of

$113.80 in gifts this year, while mom got $162.94 worth of goodies.  But, before you feel bad for dad, we should point out, spending for dad this year is expected to be about  $12.5 billion while we spent $19.9 billion for Mother's Day.
