News for Tuesday 081214

By Dave Graichen

 

On a day when there was only a 30% chance of rain, Heavy wind and rains rolled throughout Cenla Monday and left more than 3,000 residents without power. According to Cleco, nearly 1,700 power outages were reported in Rapides Parish. All of those have been restored. More than 800 customers were without power in Avoyelles parish as well.

 

Louisiana was the second-most expensive state in which to operate a motor vehicle, according to online personal finance firm Bankrate.com. The average driver in Louisiana spends $2,555 a year for gasoline, insurance and repairs, according to the report. On average, Louisiana drivers spend $1,277 a year on insurance. Only Wyoming was more expensive than Louisiana, at $2,705. But Wyoming residents drive 60 percent more than motorists in the rest of the country so their gasoline costs are much higher. Iowa was the cheapest state at $1,942 per year because drivers there have the cheapest auto insurance rates in the country. The average policy in Iowa costs just $630 per year.

 

The dispute over Common Core heads to court today. A hearing is set in Judge Todd Hernandez’s courtroom over a lawsuit filed by parents and educators who accuse Governor Jindal of overstepping his authority when he blocked tests associated with Common Core. Another Common Core hearing is scheduled for Friday in Tim Kelley’s courtroom. That one was filed by legislators who claim BESE and the department of education violated state law when it approved Common Core standards.

 

WalletHub, a national study group that looks at economic and social issues, ranked Louisiana 41st among 50 states and the District of Columbia in its ranking of "2014 Best and Worst States for Underprivileged Children." The state ranks 37th in early foundations and economic well-being, 37th in health and 49th in education. The ranking uses 16 metrics, ranging from infant death rates and children in foster care to child food insecurity rates and percentage of maltreated children. Louisiana ranks 21st in the percentage of children covered by health insurance but factors such as a much higher than normal infant death rate and poor health outcomes drag down the health factor.

 

5th District Congressman Vance McAllister has only 233 dollars in available campaign funds according to the last report he filed with the Federal Elections Commission on August 2nd. It’s expected the Congressman will self-finance much of his campaign. But ULM Political Science Professor Joshua Stockley says it sends a signal that McAllister may not have much support from voters…McAllister’s three Republican challengers have each raised over 200-thousand dollars.

 

Louisiana State Police is investigating an officer involved shooting in Crowley that has left an unidentified suspect dead. Master Trooper Brooks David says Crowley Police officers were responding to a disturbance call when a male subject began to shoot at the officers. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The investigation is ongoing

 

The St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s office says a man from New Iberia is under arrest for allegedly shooting at a car he was trying to pass while traveling on a roadway. Spokeswoman Major Ginny Higgins says the suspect is identified as a 30-year-old Jeroswaskie Collette. She says he was allegedly driving erratically when he just opened fire on the other vehicle. Collette is charged with assault by drive by shooting. Fortunately, the other driver was not hurt.

 

A Baton Rouge gun dealer who stars in the Discovery Channel show “Sons of Guns” has been booked on charges of molestation of a juvenile and aggravated crimes against nature. 49-year-old William Hayden was released on bond Saturday. Hayden told TMZ the allegations come from an ex-girlfriend as retaliation for their break-up.

 

LSU fans will be able to add a little something extra to their tailgate or football parties for the upcoming season…An LSU Jell-O mold. Emilie Fitch is the brand manager for Jell-O. She says these college team Jiggler kits are just another way fans can show how passionate they are about their team. Fitch says she realizes that people make Jell-O shots but they do not advocate that behavior or promote recipes that include alcohol. The college Jiggler kit is available now at local retailers and they are apparently going fast.

 

An elderly driver from Grayson is dead following a crash with a charter bus on U.S. Highway 165 just south of Columbia. Eighty-six year-old Ted Coleman was attempting to enter the road from his driveway when he was struck by the bus. Coleman died later at a local hospital. His two passengers suffered moderate injuries. None of them were wearing seatbelts.

 

Almost a quarter of a million dollars worth of marijuana has been seized after a traffic stop on I-12 near I-55 in Hammond yesterday morning. Twenty-six year-old Carlos Davis of Greenwood, Mississippi was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Authorities say there could be other arrests connected to this one in Mississippi.
