News For Tuesday 07/15/14


News for Tuesday 071514

By Dave Graichen

 

The Grant Parish sheriff’s office reports 17-year-old Alexandra Goodman of Colfax and three juveniles have been arrested in connection with the burglary of a church in the Hudson Creek community. Goodman was charged with simple burglary of a religious building, two counts of simple criminal damage to property, and two counts of criminal damage to property by defacing with graffiti. The three juveniles were also charged with the crimes. During the incident authorities report fecal matter was spread on the walls of the church.

 

The Pineville Police Department has filed a number of charges against an Alexandria man arrested Friday in connection to a string of purse-snatchings in the area. Pineville police charged 36 year old Desmond Price Monday with second-degree robbery, simple burglary, aggravated flight from a police officer, reckless operation of a vehicle and no driver’s license. The Pineville Report  that the second-degree robbery charge applied not only to the purse-snatching, but to the violent act committed against the victim, who told police she was knocked unconscious by the assailant before he stole purse. 

 

ESPN is reporting today the much-criticized expose by Sports Illustrated last fall on NCAA violations within the Oklahoma State football program, which included LSU coach Les Miles’ time there from 2001-04, is apparently accurate enough for one governing body to take a closer look. The NCAA is investigating Oklahoma State for possible rules violations in its football program. Miles, who was 28-21 with the Cowboys with three bowl appearances after inheriting a program that had losing seasons in 11 of 12 previous seasons, was portrayed by SI as helping start a stampede of sex, drugs and cash at the Stillwater, Oklahoma, campus.

 

Republican state lawmaker Paul  Hollis  announced Monday he's dropped out  of  Louisiana's  Senate race. Hollis says he came to his decision after "prayer and thoughtful consideration".  Recent  polls  showed Hollis had very low name recognition and very little support among voters. Hollis's decision leaves Bill Cassidy and Rob Maness as the two main Republican challengers to Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu.

 

Retired Air Force Colonel Rob Maness says his strength as a candidate  in this year's US Senate race is that he's not a career politician.  Maness talked about his candidacy during a speaking event in Baton Rouge  and said if elected he'll hold himself to just two terms and work to  develop solutions to solve the country's problems. Maness is one of two main Republican challengers to Democratic incumbent  Mary Landrieu. Baton Rouge Congressman Bill Cassidy is the other  Republican candidate.

 

State regulators let payday lenders slide on more than 8,000 “major violations,” according to the Louisiana Legislative Auditor, a lapse that had at least one lawmaker Monday formally requesting a joint legislative investigation. The state Office of Financial Institutions failed to assess any penalties against payday lenders found to have violated state law between Jan. 1, 2010, and June 30, 2013, according to a report. The audit found that 163 lenders committed 8,315 violations during the time period, including 8,082 that were considered “major,” in that they involved overcharging borrowers.

 

New Orleans senator JP Morrell has called on the Board of Regents to  create a report detailing the number of sexual assaults reported across  state colleges over the last five years. Morrell is seeking information  after a national survey found that many college campuses are not doing   a good enough job addressing the problem.  US senator Claire McCaskill's report calls into question just how  effective colleges and universities are at handling potential sexual  assault cases.  Morrell is asking

the Board of Regents to turn this information over to the state  legislature by September 15th

 

The hot political issue across the country is immigration reform and  Senator David Vitter wants to hear what you think about the topic. The  Senator will be holding a Facebook chat this afternoon at 1:30 to answer  your questions. Vitter says to join in, all you have to do is log on to  his Facebook page.

 

Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration is leasing the rights to a state-owned parking garage for $2 million to help balance Louisiana’s budget, a deal that appears to have the state taking a loss for the cash up front. The 91-year lease will generate less money than the state paid for the garage, while also giving away possibly millions of dollars the state stood to receive in parking revenue over the life of the contract. The arrangement is part of a Jindal administration trend of leasing and selling state property to patch short-term budget gaps.

 

Louisiana erroneously claimed more than $7 million in bonus payments related to its children’s health insurance program which need to be repaid. A federal inspector general’s report concludes the state Medicaid program “overstated” program enrolment , including ineligible individuals, in requests to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. DHH press secretary Olivia Watkins said the agency became aware of the “administrative error” and has corrected it.

 

The  Orleans  Parish  DA's  office  says  the suspect in the Bourbon Street  shooting  is now back in Louisiana sitting  in  the  Orleans Parish jail. Governor Bobby Jindal signed an order which started the extradition process  for  20-year-old Trung Le who was in custody in Gulfport, Mississippi. Le, who is from Belle Chasse, was booked with one count of first-degree murder  and  nine counts of attempted first degree murder. The search for the second suspect continues.

 

A sugar cane mill constructed in 2006 in Jefferson  Davis Parish, at the  request  of  then Agriculture Commissioner Bob Odom,  ended  up costing  taxpayers  71-million   dollars.    That's   according   to

Legislative Auditor Daryl Purpera. Odom  predicted  the  state  owned  mill  would  yield  a profit and

agriculture  employees  were  used  to construct the facility.   But Purpera says the mill was in operation  for  only  two months before current Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain sold it  for scrap late last year. The  audit  says Strain sold the sugar syrup mill  for  5.7  million dollars in October, but the state spent nearly 77-million dollars to build it.

 

A Crowley man is dead following  a  shooting in the early morning hours of Monday. Crowley Police report that -after the  call  of  shots being fired - twenty-three year-old Ryan Gums was found inside a  residence.  Gums died  later  at  a  local  hospital.  Police  and the Acadia  Parish Sheriff's Office are on the hunt for the shooter.

 

In Tangipahoa Parish, a tracker trailer has collided with an Amtrack passenger train in Amite.   The  driver  of  the  truck -who was not identified  -  was taken to the hospital with undisclosed  injuries. None of the 139  passengers  on the Southbound "City of New Orleans" passenger  train  were  injured,   and  they  were  bused  to  their destinations.

 

The Army Corps Of Engineers say they will being dredging 20 miles of the Calcasieu River starting  in  the  fall.  They  say the first 10 miles will be dredged over 6 months with the second stretch expected

to begin in fall of 2015.

 

According  to  a  report from the  NFL  Network,  Jimmy  Graham  has appealed the arbitration  ruling  that designated him as a tight end and not a wide receiver.  The appeal  does  not  affect the deadline for him to negotiate a new contract with the Saints, which is 3PM This afternoon.  If a deal is not made by the deadline,  Graham will have to play under the franchise tag or sit out the season.
