in

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal’s plan to shift future rank-and-file state workers to a 401(k)-style retirement plan is unconstitutional because it didn’t receive enough support from lawmakers, a judge ruled Thursday.

The investigation of a 15-year-old high school student accused of sexual battery was reportedly ongoing for nearly two weeks before school authorities were notified.

Best wide receiver in this week’s practice sessions for the Senior Bowl to be held on Saturday afternoon?
One could make a good argument for the answer being Quinton Patton, a Biletnikoff Award candidate and All-Western Athletic Conference performer at Louisiana Tech University in 2012.
And judging from evaluations being made by the plethora of National Football League representatives and draft outlets attending the week-long workouts at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala., few will argue with that assessment.
