By Dave Graichen

 

Lecompte Fire Chief Billy Norris died Monday afternoon in his home. Town officials said Norris had a massive heart attack after he returned home from the scene of a fire. Norris had been with the Lecompte Volunteer Fire Department for more than a decade. He was 62. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.

A lawsuit has been filed by 17 lawmakers challenging the methods the state used to adopt the Common Core education standards. The suit alleges the BESE board and the State Department of Education did not follow the Administrative Procedure Act. Meanwhile, the stand-off over Common Core between Governor Bobby Jindal and State Superintendent of Education John White continues.

 

Republican US Senator David Vitter files legislation that he says will stop the flow of illegal border crossings. Between October and this past June, an estimated 57-thousand unaccompanied children were apprehended by Border Patrol. The Obama administration says that number could reach 90-thousand by the end of September. Vitter says law enforcement of immigration laws for decades has encouraged more immigrants to come here illegally. Vitter admits his legislation will have a difficult time getting a debate in the Senate, because Senate leader Harry Reid will not bein support of this legislation.

 

The tens of thousands of unaccompanied children crossing over into neighboring Texas is raising concerns Louisiana may face an immigration problem of it’s own. Denham Springs Representative Valarie Hodges, a member of the House Committee on Criminal Justice, is calling on the state leadership to develop a plan of action for immigration in Louisiana. She says the crisis next door is spreading to states across the country. With Texas shelters currently overflowing with the children, Hodges is concerned that Louisiana facilities may be used to house the immigrants.

The attorney for the employees n question alleges Hebert was trying to force out his clients in every conceivable way. Hebert denies the allegations.

 

It was a violent weekend in the Crescent City as police report a total of nine people are recovering from gunshot wounds throughout the metro area. New Orleans Police say the gun violence ranged from New Orleans East to South Carrolton in broad daylight. While the city’s murder rate is down from last year, New Orleans Police Chief Ronal Serpas says it’s clear that NOPD needs more police officers.

 

A Grant Parish woman has been arrested after she was standing in the middle of Parsonage Road, yelling, holding a knife an throwing rocks at passing cars.

When deputies arrived they found 27-year-old Shella Howard dead in her bathroom, having been shot several times. 31-year-old Jaris Howard was found shortly thereafter and arrested without incident.
