PINEVILLE, La. (AP) - The state appeal court in Lake Charles has dismissed a lawsuit brought by four former professors against Louisiana College, saying it's a religious debate rather than a legal matter.

The Town Talk reports (http://townta.lk/1dBmvot ) that the ruling Nov. 6 affirmed a judge's ruling last year.

College President Joe Aguillard says it's over unless the plaintiffs appeal the ruling by the Third Circuit Court of Appeal.

Plaintiff James Heath of Dry Prong referred a query Friday from The Associated Press to attorney Victor Sooter, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Heath, Carlton Winbery, Frederick Downing and Connie Douglas claim the college defamed them and violated their academic freedom.

The lawsuit was filed eight years ago.

Health reformThe second presidential debate did little to shed new light on either candidate.  For President Obama he gave his campaign stump speech in answer to every question he was asked.  Mitt Romney gave his most compelling argument in favor of defeating the president by saying the American people can do better.

paperboyI guess we can put the newspaper battles being raged between The Advocate and the Times Picayune into the area of politics since, in reality, to some extent, the futures of South Louisiana, New Orleans area and Baton Rouge could be shaped by the paper war.

obama-romney-debateYou know you have a die-hard interest in politics when you want to see the national presidential debate, and it becomes a major commitment just to find a place to watch.  That was my case last week while I was in southern Turkey as the Turkish conflict with Syria was heating up.  I had limited television options and just could not tune into one of the U.S. national networks, or even CNN International.  And even if I could find a station, the time difference meant I would be watching at 3:00 am. No such stations beaming into Turkey could be found.  Apparently, we are not as important in this part of the world as many in Washington think.
