 Denham Springs Marshal Jerry Denton, shown here, withdrew his candidacy for the First Circuit Court of Appeals, in effect automatically electing his only opponent. Ironically, a challenge to his candidacy, which Denton says hindered his ability to raise the funds needed for his campaign, was proven to be without merit, with the man who filed the legal challenge to his candidacy admitting that after reviewing documents, he was satisfied that Denton was a qualified candidate and that his challenge would not prevail.  

Automatic cuts scheduled to go into effect on Thursday would mean that 7,000 Louisiana workers would be immediately furloughed, with a loss of almost $36 million in pay, and another $66 million for base operations in Louisiana would be cut, including funding for the Blue Angels, shown here.  The state would also see deep cuts to education, public health and funding for clean air and water.  Read more of what "sequestration" could mean to Louisiana if Congress doesn't act by Thursday at the link below.

St. Tammany Coroner Under Fire

After a series of media reports questioning spending in the St. Tammany Parish Coroner's Office, the Parish Council has invited Dr. Peter Galvan, shown here, to come before them to explain or face having his millage rolled back to drain surplus funds held by the Coroner.  The Coroner's Office has a $14 million fund balance and has come under fire for spending on meals, salaries, vehicle upkeep and other questionable items. 
Senator Mary Landrieu is blasting Governor Bobby Jindal for putting his desire to enter national politics ahead of the needs of Louisiana's citizens by refusing to expand Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act which goes into effect in 2014.  Jindal's action is blocking 421,000 Louisianans from getting health coverage, according to a report issued by Families USA and the Louisiana Healthcare Coaltion.  The $1.1 billion spent by the federal government to provide care in Louisiana would have a ripple effect of creating 15,600 new jobs $1.8 billion in increased economic activity.  Jindal had no comment but you can read more at the link below.     
Paul McIlhenny, Chairman of the Board of the company that makes Tabasco products, died Saturday of a heart attack at his home in New Orleans, leaving behind a legacy of conservative of Louisiana's wildlife and wetlands.  McIlhenny was one of the founders of the America's WETLAND Foundation and served as Vice Chairman of its board.  He is shown here with R. King Milling, receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award for his work to save Louisiana's coastal wetlands.  McIlhenny is credited with tremendous growth of the Tabasco brand worldwide to 165 countries, translated into 22 languages. 
UPDATE:  AARON BROUSSARD HAS BEEN SENTENCED TO 46 MONTHS IN PRISON.  Former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard, his former Parish Attorney and his ex-wife will stand for sentencing today for their convictions for conspiracy and theft in a scheme that put Broussard's then-girlfriend on the parish payroll in a job for which she was not qualified, and for pay raises given for various personal favors.  Also to be sentenced later this year are the former Jefferson Parish Chief Administrative Officer and a businessman who bribed Broussard. 

Governor Bobby Jindal's top budget officers released a budget that relies heavily on one-time money and includes deep cuts, employee lay-offs, college tuition hikes and even selling of some of the property surrounding the State Capitol.  Commissioner of Administration Kristy Nichols, shown here smiling at the Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget, along with Deputy Commissioner of Administration Ray Stockstill (left),  announced, "We're proud of this budget..." but legislators were wary of the lack of information provided in some areas.  It looks like a long and contentious debate will take place before the final budget is decided. 

State Representative John Bel Edwards has emerged as the loyal opposition for Governor Bobby Jindal's controversial budget plans, and now he says he's preparing to succeed him in 2015.  Edwards, a West Point graduate and veteran, says Louisiana needs "a healthy dose of common sense and compassion for ordinary people."   Edwards said he hadn't planned to make the announcement on the Jim Engster Show last week, but when asked the question wanted to give an honest answer.  Read more at the link below. 
Baton Rouge Police Chief Dewayne White was fired from his job amid applause from an audience that included dozens of members of the Baton Rouge Police force after he made an hour-long attack on Mayor Kip Holden and his administration.  White requested a public hearing to dispute recommendations for his dismissal and afterwards was called a "master of deception" by Holden, who said he could no longer allow White to divide the community with his actions.  Read more at the link below.
