BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - After a marathon six-hour special meeting Thursday night, the East Baton Rouge Parish School Board voted to downsize from 11 members to nine.


The decision was made after a controversial vote to redistrict the system. Board members could have chosen from five proposed redistricting plans. The various plans reduced the number of districts from the current 11 to as few as seven and as many as 10. After several of the proposals were voted down, the board approved the nine-member body.

The fate of a Cherry Point oil-loading dock. Distrust of BP. A minor oil-car derailment in Seattle. All of these surfaced Thursday at a hearing in Seattle.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers held the public hearing to discuss a draft environmental impact study of a dock for oil ships built in 2001, a project that did not go through such an analysis at that time.
