Congratulations going out to the crew of KALB TV5 as the central Louisiana icon celebrates it’s 60th anniversary. Among the first images that traveled across the airwaves of kalb, the 1954 World Series between the New York Giants and the Cleveland Indians.  


A federal judge receives an update today on progress abortion providers have made when it comes to obtaining privileges to admit patients at local hospitals. A state law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges has been put on hold. Center for Reproductive Rights attorney, Janet Crepps, says the doctors they represent still have applications pending. Louisiana’s new abortion restrictions law was set to go into effect September first, but a US judge in New Orleans blocked enforcement, so abortion clinic doctors can obtain privileges. Crepps says since the doctors they represent haven’t made any progress, she expects the judge will rule  legal abortions can continue.


A group of Louisiana lawmakers and other state leaders are expressing outrage about Louisiana hospitals charging rape victims for care. Slidell Representative Kevin Pearson says rape separates itself from other types of violent crimes because they so very often go unreported. Even though the standard rape kit at hospitals is free, the HIV and pregnancy test is not; including any medications ot treatment that may be needed.


The Louisiana Association of Educators has filed a lawsuit challenging the legality of using public school budget money to fund certain types of charter schools. $60 million from the budget, also known as the MFP, has been designated to fund those charter schools. LAE President Debbie Meaux says the Louisiana Constitution is clear on this issue. Education Superintendent John White says this lawsuit is a money grab for unions and school boards and an attempt to keep parents from choosing the school they think is best for their children. But, Meaux says  the charter schools in question are schools not controlled by city or parish school boards and, therefore, not eligible for funds from the public school budget.


A CNN poll on Louisiana’s US Senate race shows Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu winning the primary, but losing a runoff with Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy. ULM Political Science Professor Joshua Stockley says the survey also shows Landrieu will have to make sure registered Democratic voters get to the polls and she needs more support from white voters. The poll was conducted last week. Stockley contends, unless Cassidy makes a mistake during the campaign, he has an excellent chance to win it.

The “Move Over” law requires drivers, when approaching a stopped vehicle utilizing warning lights, to change to a non-adjacent lane to the parked vehicle. If a lane change is not possible, you should slow down before passing the stopped vehicle. Edmonson says if someone is broken down on the side of the road, that person is owed certain amount of consideration. More first responders are killed by traffic crashes than by any other line-of-duty cause.


State Police say a 38-year-old passenger from DeRidder is dead after a 13-year-old driver hit a cow. Sgt James Anderson says the victim is identified as 38-year-old Jason Brooks. Anderson says the reason the 13-year-old was driving is still under investigation. He says there was another 16-year-old passenger in the vehicle and nobody was buckled up.

Harris will make his first collegiate start at Auburn and raucous crowd is expected for this SEC West clash. Miles expects Harris and the rest of the team to handle the hostile environment well.
