Youngsville ahead on golf carts

Thursday, 27 November 2014 17:52
YOUNGSVILLE — It’s now legal to ride golf carts on Youngsville streets as long as the carts are insured for liability, equipped with headlights, brake lights and turn signals, and are operated by licensed drivers during the daytime. And the slow-moving carts — with top speed a putt-putting 25 mph — cannot legally venture onto state highways or other high-volume thoroughfares that crisscross Youngsville, a bedroom community to Lafayette’s southeast that has the fastest-growing population…
Changes to State Capitol traffic plan put on hold
Thursday, 27 November 2014 17:52
Major traffic pattern changes planned as part of a State Capitol security upgrade are being delayed, the state’s construction manager said. The Louisiana Legislature begins its 2015 session in April, and there is a concern that the road work would not be completed in time, State Office of Facility Planning and Control Director Mark Moses said. Rather than rush the work, Moses said, “We have decided to postpone it.” Some aspects of the $4.37 million…
Marker honors civil rights leader
Thursday, 27 November 2014 17:52
In Bogalusa, a mill town once ruled by white law enforcement and saturated with the Ku Klux Klan — often one and the same during the 1960s — a National Register of Historic Places marker now stands in front of a modest, aging gray house. There, in 1965, Robert “Bob” Hicks rallied African-Americans to take up the fight for integration and civil rights. Hicks’ home, a Klan target at the time, was guarded night and…
Hand It On: Thanksgiving
Thursday, 27 November 2014 17:26
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A great group of guys was up to good on Thanksgiving Day. What started out as a few guys standing around talking and drinking coffee turned into a bunch of blessing, one box at a time. Terrell Lewis knows what it's like to be thankful. He survived cancer twice, only to find out in September that it's back again. Although, on this day, you'd never know any of that, especially…

Thursday, 27 November 2014 17:26
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Hundreds of people used Thanksgiving morning to participate in the annual March of Dimes Turkey Trot. WAFB chief meteorologist Jay Grymes offered the countdown that was both a 5K for runners and a fun run/walk for everyone else. He also managed to see everyone at the beginning and end of their runs.

Firefighters enjoy nice Thanksgiving meal while on duty to protect the public
Thursday, 27 November 2014 17:26
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Members of the Baton Rouge Fire Department were on hand to keep the public safe on Thanksgiving, but that doesn't mean they were denied a good meal. The firefighters may have been spent the day wearing their uniforms and staying by the radio listening for distress calls, but the spread on their table looked delicious. There were traditional foods, as well as extras for enjoying at the Robert Bogan Fire…

Pass the cranberries. Pass the yams. But after the plates are cleared away, the biggest question around Louisiana’s Thanksgiving tables will be this one: Can LSU pass the ball? LSU’s 17-0 shutout at Arkansas on Nov. 15 doesn’t look quite so bad in the wake of the suddenly awake Razorbacks quashing the Ole Miss Rebels 30-0 Saturday. But there’s no prettying up the fact that the Tigers managed a completely meager 123 total yards in…
Power of 9: Mike Zobrist
Thursday, 27 November 2014 16:25
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Mike Zobrist was heading to a classroom with his second grade friend Tujuan Beachamp when cameras caught up with him. Beachamp knew he was on television, so he smiled broadly. However, kids in the Reading and Math Friends programs of Volunteers in Public Schools are usually happy to get out of their ordinary class and meet with an adult who gives them individual attention. Zobrist tries to visit his math…

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Triumph Kitchen, the culinary training program for at-risk youth, had meals ready to go Thursday for anyone who wanted them. Chef Chris Wadsworth took to social media to ask for donations and people gave the equivalent of an iron chef challenge, making Thanksgiving out of whatever was donated. It turns out with a professional chef as the teacher and kids willing to experiment, a wonderful meal resulted. "Several different styles…

Thursday, 27 November 2014 15:59
As has been suspected, Saints nose tackle Brodrick Bunkley will miss what’s left of his team’s season because of a leg injury, New Orleans coach Sean Payton announced Thursday. Bunkley injured a quadriceps in Monday night’s 34-27 loss at home to Baltimore and is now on year-ending injured reserve. Payton said the roster spot freed up by the move will be occupied by defensive tackle Lawrence Virgil, an undrafted rookie out of Valdosta State who…
