News For Friday 03/21/14


News For Friday 032114

By Dave Graichen

 

A group of current Louisiana College students is calling for a strike to begin Monday and is demanding changes at the private Baptist school in Pineville, including the removal of Joe Aguillard as president. Fliers have appeared on campus asking others to join the student strike at Guinn Auditorium at 8 a.m. Monday. They’re asking for faculty and community members to join them.

 

After  almost  not  moving  at  all  to start 2014, the gas price in Louisiana  is starting it's spring climb.  The  American  Automobile Association  says  the  current  statewide  average  for a gallon of

regular stands at $3.29 which is up almost a nickel from  just  last week.  AAA  fuel  analyst  Don Redman says motorists should start to budget more for gas. He says they are expecting a mostly smooth transition from winter to summer blend gasoline, but the  tensions  in  Russia and Crimea have the  market a little nervous which could mean a  sharp  spike  later this month.

 

In  response to U.S. sanctions over Crimea, Russia has imposed  some entry  bans  on  a  number of U.S. lawmakers, including U.S. Senator Mary  Landrieu.  A New  Orleans  newspaper  reports  that  there  is speculation  it is  based on her criticism of Russia ending an adoption program.

 

Secretary of State Tom Schedler is reminding all registered voters that  you can cast your ballots early for the April 5th spring municipal  elections starting tomorrow. He says the elections next month will be  held in 34 of the state's 64 parishes. Early voting begins tomorrow and  runs through Saturday March 29th, excluding Sunday March 23rd.

 

Several  students  are reportedly facing big time punishment for allegedly changing their grades in an online class for credit. Caddo Parish  officials say the seniors, from Southwood High,  apparently hacked into the system and gave themselves  more  credit  needed  to graduate. They are suspended and could be expelled.

 

 A New York City man has been arrested after making a statement that he  had placed an explosive device on a Greyhound bus in Monroe. 26-year-old  Jonathan Rivera locked himself in the bus bathroom and started a fire. Police report  37 passengers were removed from the bus and taken across  the street while the Monroe Fire Department, Fire Marshall's Office and  State Police aided in sweeping the bus and surrounding area with the  of bomb-sniffing dogs. Rivera remains in custody in the Ouachita  Correctional Center.

 

You  might  be  due  some cash from the IRS. Louisiana residents who have not filed their 2010  tax  returns  are due a total of over $15 million. IRS Media relations director Lea Crusberg says thousands of individuals have potential refunds waiting to be claimed. She says there is a three year window that you have to claim refunds before the money goes into the US Treasury.

 

The St. Landry Parish Sheriff's office announces they've gotten more dangerous drugs  off  the  street.  They  say about $40,000 worth of synthetic  marijuana, about 22 pounds of it,  was  seized  during  a traffic stop  near Lawtell. A search of a vehicle found 968 ten gram packets  of 9 different  types  of  the  synthetic  drug.  Names  of suspects are not being released at this time as the investigation is ongoing.

 

Speaking of synthetic pot, The  state  Department  of  Health and Hospitals issues an emergency

order that bans an additional  eight  compounds  found  in synthetic marijuana   sold  in  Louisiana.  Officials  say  in  recent  weeks, emergency rooms  in  the  Baton  Rouge  area  have  treated over 100 individuals who have overdosed on synthetic marijuana.

 

If you are planning on kicking off the first weekend of spring with a  crawfish boil, expect little mudbugs and big prices. Dr. Greg Lutz  with the LSU Ag Center says, this season the crawfish are running way behind. Lutz says a good crawfish crop relies on vegetation to provide the basis

for a natural food chain. However, with the cold weather we've  experienced in recent months, that vegetation is just not there. Thus smaller, fewer and more expensive crawfish.

 

The Calcasieu  Parish  Sheriff's  office says a 25-year-old man from Sulphur  is accused of raping a 4-year-old  girl.  They  say  Albert Hudson is  accused  in  the  incident  that occurred last month, and

after further investigation he was arrested  this  week  and  booked with aggravated rape. Bond is set at $750,000.

 

The Ragin Cajuns look to pull off an upset this afternoon when they face  the Creighton Blue Jays in the NCAA Tournament. Creighton finished in  second in the Big East Conference and they are led by Doug McDermott,  who is one of the top scorers in the nation. Cajuns Coach Bob Marlin  says his team has a chance to make a real statement. The Ragin Cajuns received an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament by  winning the Sun Belt Tournament.
