Two Central Louisiana women are dead following a one vehicle crash into a tree in Alexandria on Louisiana Highway 1205 just after midnight Thursday. The passenger-29 year-old Ashley Gallien of Pineville was pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver – 31 year-old Heather McCormick of Boyce – died later at a local hospital. State Police Trooper Scott Moreau says things might have turned out different if the two women had worn seatbelts.

 

The National Weather Service in Shreveport says that bad storm that blew through northwest Louisiana Wednesday night left thousands without power and claimed the life of one person. Senior Meteorologist Jason Hansford says they saw 60-70 mile an hour winds which downed numerous trees and power lines. Even though those numbers have gotten lower, SWEPCO now says several thousand people in the Shreveport area could be in the dark until Sunday.

 

The efforts of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education to hire a law firm to legally challenge the governor’s decision to scrap Common Core is receiving some push-back from the Jindal administration.

It’s called The Memorandum of Understanding, and it’s the result of a private-public long-term partnership between higher education, the state and the oil industry to get more workers for industry needs in the Gulf. The combination of more demand and 40% of the current workforce retiring within ten years.  It’s putting a curriculum on the fast-track to certify new gulf oil workers in two  years. Louisiana Mid Continent Oil and Gas Association President Chris John  says it’s important since deep water exploration and production is expected to increase in the Gulf.

 

An Organized Crime Task-Force investigation has led to 7 indictments in North Louisiana for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and other related drug charges.

The annual International Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo is underway and thousands of people are expected descend on coastal town to enjoy the festivities. Anglers from across the area will compete to see who can catch the biggest fish in a number of categories. Property tax clerk for the town of Grand Isle, Bonnie Pizani (piz-annie), says in addition to the fishing, the event will also feature family events, craft vendors, crab races, live music, and more. The fishing rodeo began in 1928 and is informally referred to as the “Mardi Gras of Grand Isle.” Pizani says businesses across the island look forward to the economic boost the thousands of people who attend the event bring every year

 

White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, has rolled out the red carpet for the New Orleans Saints who begin training camp there today. The Black and Gold will spend the next three weeks getting ready for the upcoming season at the Greenbrier resort. Kara Dense, with the Greenbrier Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, says they were thrilled when the team bus rolled in. For the past few seasons, the team has held training camps exclusively at their Meterie facility. Dense says this is a great chance for some out of town Saints fans to watch the team play.
