News For Monday 03/17/14

News for Monday 031714

By Dave Graichen


Rumors floating around Baton Rouge say that today could be the day former Governor Edwin Edwards will announce he's decided  to run for the 6th Congressional District. Political analyst Bernie

Pinsonat says Edwards is still extremely popular in Louisiana,  but he doesn't think there are enough Edwards lovers to elect him to  Congress. However, Pinsonat says we're talking about a man who is the only Governor in Louisiana to be elected 4 times.


A West Monroe lawmaker has a bill that would allow certain  motorcyclists to choose whether or not they want to wear a helmet.  Senator Mike Walsworth says the legislation would only apply to people

21 and over and those who have completed a motorcycle safety awareness  program.  Riders were not required to wear a helmet in the late 90s early 2000's but due to a high number of fatal accidents involving bikes, the law was put back on the books.


It's  against the law  to  threaten  lawmakers  according  to  State Police.  But  that's  just  what  one  Monroe man allegedly did says Trooper Albert Paxton. He says 31-year-old  Roy  Green  was arrested after   a  report  came  in  that  he  sent  an  email  to  a  state representative saying if he didn't support marijuana law reform, the suspect  would  personally  see  that his office and livelihood were placed in danger. Paxton says Green  denies  sending  the  email but says it was a Facebook post. Green  is charged with extortion and if found guilty faces 15  years in prison.


Louisiana's legendary hot sauce - Tabasco - was profiled last night on  CBS's 60 minutes. Dr. Sanjay Gupta sat down Tabasco and McIlhenny  (MAC-LENNY) Company CEO Tony Simmons, the great great grandson of the  company's founder, Edmund McIlhenny. Simmons says CBS was intrigued by

the story of a 5th generation, family owned business. Simmons says every bottle of Tabasco in the world is made in Avery  Island.


In recent years there has been a growing concern that playing high  school football may contribute to brain issues later in life.. However,  a new study conducted by Tulane University's Dr Gregory Stewart has found  there is no link between high school football play and neurocognitive  function. Stewart's study involved 12-hundred New Orleans high school football  players who played between 1998 and 2001. He says they looked at their  concussion history and scores on common neuropsychological tests. The research does however suggest the need to reinforce education of  high school and college athletes about concussion symptoms so they can   be properly treated.


A woman from  Galliano  is  facing multiple felony theft charges for allegedly stealing money from  an  elderly  man  she had befriended. Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office Spokesperson Brennan Matherne says Charlene Romero confessed to taking thousands from the man’s home but they aren't sure exactly how much money it was. She currently is charged with more than 10 felony counts of theft.


The solider who was busted in Port Allen with 23 pounds  of  pot  in his  car  in  February was released from the West Baton rouge Parish prison Friday to  military police. 30-year-old Sgt. Horace Brown was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.


If a teacher yanked  your  child's shirt at school do you think that educator should be arrested  for  simple  battery?  Baker Police say yes. Chief Mike Knaps says 47-year-old Deborah Anderson  is arrested for  simple battery in the matter at Baker Middle. The Baker  School Superintendent  thinks  that's  too  far. But Knaps says you are not allowed to touch students unless they  are  posing  a threat.


The Ragin Cajuns men's basketball team is in the NCAA Tournament for the  first time since 2005. U-L Lafayette rallied back from a 9-point deficit  with three minutes in regulation to beat Georgia State 82-81 in overtime  in the Sun Belt Tournament Championship game.  The Cajuns are a 14-seed in the tournament. And they'll play third-seeded Creighton on Friday in San Antonio.
