Graham set for challenge

Saturday, 22 November 2014 20:02

Jimmy Graham realizes this isn’t possible, but the star New Orleans Saints tight end has always thought he should be targeted on every offensive play.

That’s why he doesn’t believe losing rookie receiver and teammate Brandin Cooks for the six games remaining on New Orleans’ schedule this year is reason for him switch up the mindset he approaches his job with every day.

“If he’s out or not, I want to do everything,” Graham — who leads the 4-6 Saints in catches (59), receiving yards (623) and touchdown grabs (seven) — said Saturday.

Group releases refinery report
Saturday, 22 November 2014 19:41

The number of accidents reported by ExxonMobil refinery in Baton Rouge was lower in 2013 than in 2012, but environmental groups said Saturday that doesn’t mean much since the numbers depend on self-reporting from the company itself.

The Louisiana Bucket Brigade along with the Green Army, met Saturday morning to release refinery accident numbers for 2013, the most recent numbers that are available, and to call for action to ensure safety of air and water.

Baton Rouge Police Officer Dominic Distefano II made $61,000 in 2008. By 2011, he’d almost doubled those earnings, and in 2013, he made $135,223.

Distefano’s base salary didn’t exceed $60,000 over all these years, but he earned much higher pay by bulking up on his overtime hours, according to police salary and overtime data spanning six years.

The officer of 24 years is nearing eligibility for retirement. After 25 years, he can either retire or enter the popular deferred retirement program for public employees, at which point his retirement benefit will be calculated.

HONOLULU — Pilots from Island Air were probably pretty happy when they got a $4,000 Christmas bonus — that is, until the airline wanted the money back.

The regional airline owned by billionaire Larry Ellison said it paid the bonuses prematurely in October.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported (http://goo.gl/bGeuNh) Saturday that the company plans to take payroll action to recover the erroneous payments.
