News For Tuesday 03/11/14

News for Tuesday 031114

By Dave Graichen


The  2014  legislative  session  is  underway. Lawmakers started the session yesterday at 12 noon then Governor Bobby Jindal spoke to a joint session of Representatives and Senators  on  the  House  floor.  The session will adjourn no later than 6pm on Monday June 2nd.


 The chairwoman of the Louisiana democratic party  blasts what Governor  Jindal has done in office after he gave an address to lawmakers touting  the need for more skilled workers. Karen Peterson says the state  would  be able to produce more grads, if Jindal had not cut funding for  for education in recent years. Peterson says if the governor truly wants to improve this state, it  would help if he was around to help pass some meaningful legislation.


The Mega Millions Jackpot is now up to 309 Million dollars. Tonight's  drawing has a cash value of about 169 million dollars. Louisiana Lottery  Spokesperson Kimberly Chopin says this is the ninth largest Mega  Millions jackpot in lottery history.


State  Treasurer  John Kennedy  says  he  wants  the  department  of corrections to re-open  the  Phelps Correctional Center in Calcasieu Parish as an inmate charter school.  He says a 2013 Rand Corporation study of 58 prison education programs  found that every dollar spent on prison education saves four dollars in prison costs. Kennedy says taxpayers aren't benefiting  from  an empty prison that was  closed because it was supposed to save the state  two-point-six million dollars.


Governor  Bobby  Jindal finished in tenth place in a 2016 republican presidential straw  poll  that  was  taken  at the conclusion of the Conservative Political Action Committee conference.  Jindal received

just two-percent of the vote. The Governor has said he  doesn't know if he'll run for President, but political analyst Clancy  Dubos says it's obviously he was some sort of national aspirations. US Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky won Saturday's straw poll.


The   Department  of  Wildlife  and  Fisheries  says  they  will  be conducting aerial feral hog control using helicopters on Pearl River in the  marsh  south  of  Highway  90  in  St. Tammany Parish and on

Sherburne  in  Iberville and Point Coupee Parishes  this  week.  The purpose of this aerial population control with firearms is to reduce the feral hog numbers.


The state of Louisiana  used  to  be the second fattest state in the nation.  Now, we find ourselves as  the  fourth fattest state in the union,  according  to  a  new Gallup survey.   There  are  signs  of

improvement as the work-out percentages are increasing, in those who say they exercise moderately or vigorously.  Those numbers moved from 35.4 percent  to 43.6 percent in a 10 year period.


Twice-convicted sex offender Brian Horn has  been  denied his motion  for a 14 month delay in his capital murder trial for the death of 12 year-old  Justin Bloxom south of Stonewall in 2010.   Bloxom's  body was discovered  in  a ditch off Highway 171, after he was kidnapped. Desoto Parish District  Judge  Robert  Burgess  said that trial will begin as scheduled today.


The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries announced today that the reward has  been  increased  to $20,000 for information that  leads  to  an arrest and conviction of  the  person  or  persons  responsible  for shooting  two  whooping  cranes  found  in  Jefferson Davis Parish earlier in the year


A Morgan City man is in a St Landry Parish jail after he allegedly held  toddler's feet in scalding water. St. Landry Parish Sheriff's  Captain  Megan Vizena says 34-year-old Theron Thomas has been  charged with one  count of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.
