News for Thursday 082114

By Dave Graichen

 

An early morning break in this morning at the offices of Cenla Broadcasting was thwarted by an alert neighbor, an employee who was working late and the APD. The robber gained access to the marketing offices here at the station by breaking a large window in the front of the building. An Alexandria police Canine officer apprehended a man and he was arrested.

 

The National Weather Service is keeping their eye on a tropical disturbance forming in the Atlantic.  Forecasters give this system a moderate chance of forming into a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next few days.  Meteorologist Danielle Manning says over the next few days, conditions will become more favorable for the system to develop into a tropical cyclone.  As far as where this system will go, Manning says if this system develops into a tropical cyclone, forecast models will have a much better idea of where the storm is heading. But for now, too soon to tell.

 

State education superintendent John White says public schools are moving forward with Common Core education standards after a judge lifts the Jindal administration’s suspension  of contracts for the tests tied to Common Core. White says it’s time to that we focus on the welfare of the student.  Despite the ruling though, Commissioner of Administration Kristy Nichols says she is still concerned  a legal contract is not in place to give out the exam known as PARCC.  White says Judge Todd Hernandez’s ruling is clear and it says the current contract can be used to provide the tests tied to Common Core.

 

Incumbent Alexandria Mayor Jacques Roy, Jamar Gailes, Jeff Hall and Nicholas Wright signed up yesterday the first day of qualifying for the November 4th primary election. Expected to join the four candidates who have already qualified is City Councilwoman Mitzi LaSalle. Former Alexandria Councilman Roosevelt Johnson wasted no time, he  qualified yesterday to run for the District 2 seat on the City Council. That is the seat currently held by Mitzi LaSalle.  Alexandria Councilmen Jim Villard and Harry Silver also qualified today to run for re-election. Chris Roy Jr. and Phillip Terrell both qualified to run for Rapides Parish district attorney. Incumbent James "Jam" Downs is not seeking re-election.  Qualifying runs through Friday.

 

Four of the six candidates expected to file paperwork to run in the Nov. 4 primary for the 5th Congressional District have registered so far. Former Grant Parish District Attorney Ed Tarpley,  Monroe businessman Harris Brown, Dr. Ralph Lee and Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo all signed up yesterday. Also expected to qualify is political newcomer Zach Dasher, a pharmaceutical representative from Calhoun.

 

Dixie Boys Baseball is coming back home to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Pineville will host the 2016 Dixie Junior Boys and Dixie Boys World Series at the Ward 9 Sportsplex on Donahue Ferry Road. The two 12-team, double-elimination tournaments will be held from Aug. 6-10 of 2016.

 

Incumbent US Senator Mary Landrieu and her main challenger, Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy, have officially signed up for the Senate race for the November 4th election. Yesterdays was the first day of qualifying which runs through Friday. Landrieu, who has held the office for 18 years, says this campaign is about leadership. But Cassidy says most people agree that this country is going in the wrong direction under Mr. Obama.

 

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s office has released a picture of the vehicle that was involved in last weekend’s fatal shooting of a seven-year-old boy in Baton Rouge in what appears to be a random act of violence. Sheriff Sid Gautreaux says surveillance video from a nearby residence captured a light-colored, four-door sedan in the area when a shot was fired into another vehicle, killing Terrez Coleman. Gautreaux says through private donations, a 10-thousand dollar reward is being offered, along with the 25-hundred dollar reward from Crime Stoppers, for information that leads to the arrest and indictment of the gunman.

 

Shreveport Police detectives are investigating a shooting at Shreveport Regional Airport Tuesday night. The initial investigation showed the shooting grew out of  a dispute between a cab driver and a security officer. No one was injured.
