News For Friday 07/18/14


News for Friday 071814

By Dave Graichen

 

Very  sad  story  out  of  Terrebonne  Parish. State  Police  say  a 31-year-old  mother  and her 3-year-old daughter  died  after  their vehicle was submerged  into  a  canal  in Dularge Wednesday evening. They say Ashely Worrell of Theriot was driving her Nissan Titan when she traveled off the road and entered the  canal.  She and her young child were both pronounced dead.

 

A small child was struck and killed by her father's truck in Bossier  City. The tragic incident occurred Thursday morning as 27-year-old Damion  Dacaldacal (Duh-call-duh-call) was preparing to take his three children  to daycare. Authorities say at some point the man lost track of one of his children, striking his 14-month-old child as he pulled out of the driveway. The case is being treated as a tragic accident, and charges are not expected.

 

Wet weather is expected over much of the state over the next couple of  days.  Donald Jones, with the National Weather Service in Lake Charles,  says this week's rare cold front is moving out of the state and a low  pressure system is moving in from Texas. He says the rainy pattern should last through Saturday evening.  Jones  says the rainfall totals will range from two to three inches, with localized areas possibly getting four inches.

 

 A meeting between Governor Jindal and Education Superintendent John  White does not produce an agreement on where to go from here when it  comes to having a standardized test in place for the upcoming school  year.  This dispute erupted when Governor Jindal used executive authority to  keep tests associated with Common Core out of Louisiana. White says  BESE leaders believe they have the legal authority to determine the type  of standardized test students should take, but the Jindal administration  has made it clear they should be involved in that process. White says legal action may be  needed to settle this impasse...

 

The idea of shifting state money traditionally used to pay for public school education into a fund that would pay for construction at the charter schools chilled some members of the State Bond Commission. The panel of high ranking state officials that oversee borrowing by government agencies asked the not-for-profit corporation running the charter school to delay its request until its officials could answer some of the questions about using part of the the Minimum Foundation Program, called MFP, to repay construction loans. The $3.6 billion MFP is the key source of funding for about 700,000 public school students.

 

The  Louisiana  State Police Retirement System Board is looking into how State Police  Colonel Mike Edmonson and another trooper received a large increase in  retirement  benefits as a result of a bill that passed  in  the  final  hours  of  the legislative  session.  An analysis of the law that passed  shows it will cost the state an extra 300-thousand dollars.  Edmonson  has  told  reporters if an

investigation shows the retirement increase is not legal,  he  won't take the added benefits.

 

According to Forbe's magazine, the New Orleans Saints  are  the 36th most valuable sports team in the world.  The magazine estimates  the Saint's  value  at  just over 1-billion dollars, up from 971-million dollars a year ago.   That  ranks  the Black and Gold 23rd among NFL franchises.

 

Governor Bobby Jindal announces a Chinese firm will  be  building  a $1.85  billion  dollar world-scale methanol manufacturing complex on the Mississippi River  in  St.  James  Parish. Yuhuang Chemical will create over 23 hundred indirect jobs with 400 new direct jobs.

 

Specialty hot sauce makers from around the globe are making their way to Lafayette this weekend for the inaugural Louisiana Hot Sauce Festival, where they hope to introduce hot sauce aficionados to new blends and spicy flavors. Descending upon the shady oaks and Cajun houses of Lafayette’s Acadian Village will be more than 100 vendors, including 30 different hot sauce makers, nine bloody mary mix makers, and arts and crafts makers.

 

Ku  Klux  Klan  recruitment  flyers  are  popping  up  in south Lake Charles.  The flyers are contained in Ziploc bags and residents have found them in their driveway.  The flyers say "Save our  Land,  Join

our  Klan"  and  "Our Race is Our Nation."  There's also a telephone number to call which leads you to this recorded message. The phone number on  the  flyer  has  an  area  code  out  of  North

Carolina.   Lake  Charles  Police say they are investigating, but they point out the KKK or any group is entitled to freedom of speech.

 

Unbelievable.  That's  just  one of the words used by Slidell Police Chief Randy Smith to describe  the  case  of a local store owner who found  one  of his company checks missing, and  later  discovered  a

store employee  forging  it  to  receive services from a prostitute. The  surveillance video clearly showed  24  year  old  Charles  West involved  in  a  sexual  act  inside the store.  He was charged with theft, forgery and solicitation of a prostitute.
