News For Wednesday 07/30/14


News for Wednesday 073014

By Dave Graichen

 

Sarah Smith has been named acting city marshal in Pineville. Smith who has been the Deputy city Marshall for 18 years, assumes the position due to the death of  longtime marshal Larry Jeane. Smith says after discussing the matter with Larry Jeane’s family, she will run for the office as well in the fall.

 

The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education has voted 6 to 4 to join a Common Core lawsuit against Governor Bobby Jindal. That suit accuses Jindal of illegal use of executive powers to halt the use of the new education standards. The Jindal administration has filed a counter lawsuit, alleging BESE violated its constitutional authority when it agreed to adopt Common Core testing.

 

With lawsuits flying back and forth over Common Core, education superintendent John White is working to develop an assessment test to be used in public schools for the upcoming school year. White says BESE has ordered the Department of Education to provide a final resolution to the testing issue by the end of August. The upcoming school year begins next month. White says hearings over the Common Court lawsuits will take place next month and initial rulings will provide them a guide to the type of standardized test they’ll have

 

Pineville police arrested a homeless man who attempted to rob the Pelican State Credit Union on Main Street yesterday afternoon.  The man entered the bank carrying a duffel bag demanding a large amount of money and making threatening statements to the bank staff. Police were forced to use a stun gun to subdue the man.

 

Ville Platte Police have made an arrest in connection with their first homicide case of the year Monday as a store owner Anna Nguyen (Gwen), was brutally murdered in an apparent armed robbery. Nguyen leaves behind several children.

 

The bad number is 8.7 — the percentage of Louisiana residents who are shown on credit reports as having past-due debt, according to the Urban Institute.  Among the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas, 8.6 percent of residents of the Baton Rouge and New Orleans regions had past-due debts.

Across the nation, more than 35 percent of Americans have debts and unpaid bills that have been reported to collection agencies

 

The Baton Rouge Police Department says they’ve identified a woman who they believe ran over a 6 year old girl who was riding her bicycle and fled the scene yesterday afternoon. Authorities say  20-year-old Maigan Scott of Baton Rouge struck the child and then took off leaving the girl lying in the road. Scott was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail. The little girl is in critical condition.

 

In Money magazine’s 2014 Best Colleges list, Louisiana Tech is named as one of the nation’s best college values. The rankings were based on educational quality, affordability and alumni earnings data. Tech was named No. 154 in the nation and 2nd in Louisiana behind LSU. Other schools on the list included Tulane, Loyola and Grambling.

 

Though a federal appeals court panel ruled Tuesday that a Mississippi law that would close the state’s only abortion clinic is unconstitutional, a very similar law here in Louisiana, is expected to stand. Voting 2-1, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled that Mississippi’s 2012 “admitting privileges” statute effectively would close the state’s only abortion clinic, forcing patients to travel out of state for the procedure. That would not be the case in Louisiana, since the state has more than one clinic.

 

A year-long study is underway that will examine the feasibility of Amtrak Passenger Rail Service from the Shreveport area to Vicksburg, MS. This is one of three studies looking to extend passenger train service from Dallas to Meridian, MS. It is believed that re-establishing rail service will have a positive economic impact on north Louisiana.

 

LSU faculty and staff are looking at a second straight year of pay raises, following what was a particularly difficult stretch for university funding over the last few years. Faculty and staff members will receive a 3% merit raise, right on the heels of last years 4%. Faculty Senate President Kevin Cope says the pay raise is a welcome news for anyone involved with the university. The pay raise may not only help retain talent, but may also help to attract professors from around the country. While the raise is welcome amongst the faculty and staff of the university, LSU still lags behind other major state programs in compensation.

 

A 10 year veteran of the New Orleans Police Department has been arrested on numerous charges and placed on emergency leave for allegedly trying run a man down with her car. Officer Stephanie Caldwell reportedly got into an altercation with the man and then pursued him going against traffic before striking a car.

Alexandria Holiday Tour of Homes

Alexandria's Garden District Neighborhood Foundation is hosting a Holiday Tour of Homes to include four homes in the Garden District. 2014 Marye Street was the home of General and Mrs. Omar Bradley when they resided in Alexandria during the Louisiana Maneuvers. 2022 Albert Street was modeled after actress Cathleen Moore's Beverly Hills home and it is said that Long was an occasional overnight guest in this house. 1703 Polk Street is built entirely of glass bottles circa 1945. More than 3,000 bottles were used to construct the house, which was originally used as a gift shop. The house at 1924 Barrister Street has been in the same family since it was built 100 years ago. What began as a one-story planter cottage, is now a grand colonial home.
