News for Tuesday 013018

By Dave Graichen

 

President Trump’s first official State of the Union address is tonight.  It is believed the President will stress bi-partisanship with Mr. Trump himself calling it an “important speech.”  Senior Administration officials have been quoted saying it will be an “optimistic speech.”  You can hear the State Of The Union speech tonight starting at 8p on KSYL 970am & 100.3 HD3fm.

 

President Donald Trump invited a very special guest to his first State of the Union address tonight. Cajun Navy founder Jon Bridgers will be in attendance along with a section of 15 other special guests. Baton Rouge Congressman Garret Graves says Bridgers’ volunteer group has been credited with rescuing thousands of people during Hurricane Harvey and the 2016 floods. Bridgers was invited by President Donald Trump.

 

Tax filing season began yesterday. There are several ways to file, including using a tax preparer. If you decide to use a tax preparer to file your return, state department of revenue spokesperson Bryon Henderson says it’s important to find a reputable preparer. Your federal tax return is due April 17, state returns are due May 15.

 

Governor John Bel Edwards’ “Doomsday Budget” proposal has state agencies scrambling to shore up state funding, with LSU’s Pennington Biomedical Center looking at a potential 600,000 dollar cut. John Kirwan, who was named executive director last month, says the budget issues threaten to drive off talented researchers. Kirwan says the budget cuts threaten Pennington’s groundbreaking research on diabetes and pre-diabetes, which he says effects nearly 50 percent of the state’s population.

 

Officials cut the ribbon Monday on the new LSU Center for River Studies, which has a state of art model of the Mississippi River. Director Clint Wilson says it gives coastal scientists a powerful tool on how sediment diversion can help in the fight against coastal erosion. The project is the result of a collaboration between LSU and the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority.

 

The head of Louisiana’s Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control says they’ve suspended the liquor licenses for eight French Quarter strip clubs, because they found evidence of prostitution, drug sales and lewd acts. New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison says the investigation’s target was not prostitutes, but human traffickers. He says no one has been charged with human trafficking, but the investigation continues. Hearings are scheduled in February to see if the clubs who had their liquor licenses suspended will get them back.

 

This winter’s extremely cold weather in Louisiana has stunted or even killed many of the tropical plants that normally flourish in Louisiana.  Horticulture expert Dan Gill with the LSU Ag Center says it’s a good idea to not be in a hurry to give up on a plant this soon after the extreme cold snap.  He says they aren’t used to the chilly weather, but could rebound. He says some plants won’t begin rebounding until March or April and in some cases like trees, it could be summer before you can properly assess if they are still alive.
