News For Thursday 03/20/14

News for Thursday 032014

By Dave Graichen


The  House  Health  and Welfare Committee has approved new standards for  abortion  clinics.  The  biggest  provision  requires  abortion doctors to have  admitting  privileges  at  a nearby hospital. The bill now heads to the House floor. But pro-choice advocates were on hand during the debate to voice their opposition to the so-called admitting privileges bill. Amy Irvin,  with the New Orleans Abortion Fund, says  if this legislation becomes law,  it  will close abortion facilities in Baton Rouge and New Orleans.


A bill by New Orleans Representative Cameron Henry  which  calls for harsher  penalties  for  individuals  who commit battery on athletic sporting  officials  was  approved by the  House  Committee  on  the Administration of Criminal Justice and now moves to the house floor. Henry says that the current  penalties  for  battery are clearly not strong  enough  and  he  wants  to  see fines increased  along  with possible jail time, community service, and court approved counseling for individuals who commit this offense.


A number of charges are facing a Department of children and family services audit director  for  allegedly using  a  state-issued  credit  card for personal use.  State Police Captain Doug Cain says when they  searched  the  home of 34 year-old Delrice  Augustus,  they  discovered  items  worth $7500  and  about $18,000  in  cash. Augustus allegedly purchased iphones,  flat  screens,  ipads  and  a dishwasher with the card.


Lake   Charles   Police   are  investigating  a  shooting  Tuesday afternoon, in which a 12 year-old  boy  shot a 15 year-old boy after an argument.  Police caught up to the young suspect shortly after he fled the scene. According to a Lake Charles TV station, they believe the gun was registered to owner of the home.


Louisiana  State  Police  says a man from Clinton is booked with his 7th DWI in East Feliciana Parish.  They  say  30-year-old James Earl Haynes refused a breath test and was booked into  jail  on counts of 7th  offense  DWI  and  unlawful  refusal  to submit chemical tests. Haynes has been  arrested by the same trooper 3 times since 2011 for the same offense.


A 19-year-old mother from  Houma  is  charged  with attempted second degree murder of her one month old baby. A spokesman with the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's says they believe the woman was responsible for shaking  her baby and throwing the boy against the wall.


The Department of Transportation has launched  a  "Pick  the  Paint" campaign  to have the public pick the new paint color for the Jimmie Davis Bridge  that connects Shreveport with Bossier City.  With over 27 hundred votes  so  far,  it  sounds  as  if  there's some LSU and Louisiana Tech influence, as the top choices are  Purple,  Blue  and Red.   The  rehabilitation project for the bridge is scheduled to go to bid this fall.


Instead of a price-tag of almost $540 million dollars, the estimated cost for rail service between  Baton  Rouge  and New Orleans has now been  reduced to around $262 million dollars, according  to  a  rail study released  yesterday.  The  study  by HNTB Corporation proposed leasing trains upfront as opposed to purchasing  them to save money. The  trip  would  take a about an hour and a half with  seven  stops along the way.


A  Louisiana  House committee  voted  14-1  in  favor  of  advancing legislation that  would expand the application of the death penalty. Under House Bill 278,  the killing of a prison worker would become a capital crime. First degree  murder  already  covers  the  death  of firemen,  peace  officers, Louisiana State Police Crime Lab civilian employees, taxi drivers,  young children and the elderly. The last time a prison worker was killed by an inmate was during a failed prison escape at Angola 15 years ago.


 As expected, a bill by New Orleans Representative Helena Moreno which  would ban UV tanning for anyone 17 and under was overwhelmingly  approved by the House in a 97-1 vote. The only lawmaker to vote against  the bill was Stonewall Representative Richard Burford. Moreno says this measure will lower risks from skin cancer associated  with UV tanning lamps and beds. She says the risks are  especially high  for younger tanning bed users.


LSU is selling old lockers from Tiger Stadium in a fundraising effort.  The Jeff Boss Locker Room is in the process of a complete renovation  and the old lockers from 1996- 2013 are being sold. For more information about the lockers or to purchase a locker go to  tiger-stadium-lockers-dot-net
