News For Tuesday 02/25/14

News for Tuesday 022514

By Dave Graichen


Downtown Alexandria has been chosen as the home of Central Louisiana Technical Community College’s new main campus. The $21 million-plus campus will replace the college’s current Alexandria campus, located on South MacArthur Drive. The Louisiana Legislature approved $251.6 million for 29 capital projects at technical colleges during its session last year. Included in that was $19 million for CLTCC’s new main campus. The full story can be found in today’s Town Talk.


As temps start to warm up analysts say the gas price will climb with them. The American Automobile Association says the current statewide average  for  a  gallon  of regular is $3.23 which is up a ten cents from a month ago.


Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Monday proposed shrinking the Army to its smallest size in 74 years, closing bases and reshaping forces to confront a "more volatile, more unpredictable" world with a more nimble military. The nation can afford a smaller military so long as it retains a technological edge and the agility to respond on short notice to crises anywhere on the globe. The defense spending plan will be part of the 2015 budget that President Barack Obama will submit to Congress next week. It is too early to tell how the proposed Army cuts would impact the Fort Polk in Vernon Parish.


Officials  with  the Independence Bowl confirm they are very excited about the partnership with its new title sponsor, "Duck Commander",  the popular West Monroe  business  made nationally famous by the A&E reality show Duck Dynasty. In a release  from  an  I-Bowl spokesman, details  of  the  new  sponsorship will be announced during  a  news conference Wednesday.


The  recent  Louisiana  food  stamp fraud that took place in October because  of  a  computer glitch has  resulted  in  action  from  the Department of Children  and  Family  Services.  DFCS  Secretary Suzy Sonnier says they have already disqualified 6 individuals  from  the program. And  Sonnier  says  there  could  be  more.  Some  500 residents have received  letters  informing  them that they also could  lose  their benefits once they conduct their interviews.


Former  Congressman Jeff Landry announces  his  intent  to  run  for attorney general.  The republican from New Iberia served in Congress but lost his seat in an election when his district was combined with Charles  Boustany's   district.   Buddy  Caldwell  is  the  current attorney general and he  is  serving  his  second term. The election will be held in the fall of 2015.


The nation's governors emerged from a meeting with President Barack Obama on Monday claiming harmony, only to immediately break into an on-camera partisan feud in front of the West Wing. Governor  Bobby  Jindal  stood  outside  of the  White  House  yesterday  criticizing  President  Obama  for  pushing a  higher  minimum  wage instead  of  trying to create higher paying  jobs.  After  the  news conference broke up, Colorado's governor called Jindal a "cheap shot artist."


A legislative auditor’s review of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast operations in Louisiana,  requested by some legislators,  found no indication that the group has recommended abortions or billed Medicaid for anything other than allowed family planning services.  The review  came in response to legislative resolutions directing various agencies to investigate and monitor the practices of the group, which has broken ground on a new 7,000-square-foot clinic in New Orleans. The $4.2 million facility on the 4600 block of South Claiborne Avenue will offer abortion services that previously had not been provided.


A  65-mile stretch of the Mississippi River that had been closed  to maritime  traffic  since Saturday was re-opened Monday afternoon by the U-S  Coast Guard. Petty  Officer  Ryan  Tippets  says  they've  been responding to a leaking barge in St. James Parish. He estimates  31,500  gallons  of  light  crude oil spilled into the river.


 The state department of Wildlife and Fisheries is seeking input from  dove hunters through an online survey. The department's study leader  for  doves, Dr. Jeff Duguya (Doo-gay) says they want to hear from  dove hunters this year, because the federal government has expanded the season from 70 to 90 days. The 13 question survey asks about ammunition and other dove hunting  information.  Duguay says one major question involves the state's dove  dove hunting season, which could start as early September first and end  January 15th. To participate in the survey go to the L-D-W-F website, find the hunting  link then look for the dove hunters survey.


The  undefeated  LSU  baseball  team is moving  up  in  some  polls. Collegiate Baseball puts LSU at No.  1.  Baseball  America  has  the Tigers at No. 7 and the UL-Ragin Cajuns at No. 10.
