Kenner police arrest man accused of raping 10-year-old girl
Kenner police arrested a Bossier City man accused of raping a 10-year-old girl. Jermayne Flowers, 36, was booked Tuesday with three counts of aggravated rape of a victim under the age of 13, said Lt. Brian McGregor, spokesman for the department.
Flowers is accused of forcing himself onto the victim on three separate occasions while he was living in Kenner. Relatives of the victim contacted police in 2012, McGregor said.
Flowers had already left the New Orleans area by the time the rapes were reported to investigators. Detectives located him after he was arrested in April in Bossier City and booked on charges of domestic abuse battery, aggravated criminal damage to property and marijuana distribution, McGregor said.
Authorities transported him to Kenner where he denied the rapes, authorities said. In addition to the rape charges, Flowers was booked on six outstanding traffic attachments.
He was still being held Thursday at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna. Bond on the attachments was set at $7... (NOLA.com)Dec 30, 2015
Aztecs hoops secret: Avoid 'bad' losses
Sun Belt Conference and have a roster filled with guys from Colleyville, Texas; Radcliff, Ky.; Pine Bluff, Ark.; Bossier City, La.; and Yazoo City, Miss.
The Aztecs will be favored to win.
But here’s their secret about these games: They always do.
To reach the NCAA Tournament six straight seasons, something only seven other Div. I programs can say, you have to do many things right. Two of the most important, at least in the eyes of the omnipotent selection committee, are amassing “quality” wins and avoiding “bad” losses. You want wins highlighted in green when they project your “body of work” on the screen in the conference room of the Indianapolis hotel in March; you don’t want losses illuminated in red.
And few teams are better at the latter, unglamorous component of building an NCAA Tournament resume than Steve Fisher’s Aztecs. It has become a quiet, overlooked hallmark of the program. They rarely lose games they shouldn’t, and never do at home.
“We’ve taken pride in it,” Fisher said. “We’ve talked to our players about it: We don’t lose these games. We put some ownership on them to maintain what we’ve been able to do. But it's not easy to do.”
(Ask UCLA, Wisconsin or North Carolina State, which have lost at home this season to Monmouth, Western Illinois and William & Mary.)
Translated into numbers, that means:

Choreographers give otherworldly Toruk earthly roots
Tan Loc, who began working with Tuan Le at the Cirque’s Montreal headquarters in February before moving to Bossier City in Louisiana, which had the only arena that was available for three months to accommodate the production’s huge steel and inflatable rubber set. “Usually we work two, three hours a day with a group, but for Toruk the longest we had was one and a half hours, then the group had to transfer to do something else.”
It was “Go! Go! Go!” stressful, admitted Tan Loc, who had to contend with acrobats required to move like dancers and dancers who had to perform acrobatics.
“Some acrobats had very specific training, so if we asked them to do something new, it was hard. Sometimes we needed them to do a single movement, like releasing at the joints, and they couldn’t do it. Some were tough to work with, but the rest were very good, open-minded.”
Presumably after preview performances in several smaller U.S. markets, the performers will be at ease in their roles when Toruk has its official première at the Bell Centre on Monday.
AT A GLANCE
Toruk – The First Flight runs from Monday, Dec. 21 to Sunday, Jan. 3 at the Bell Centre. Tickets cost $62.25 to $176.25 via cirquedusoleil.com/Toruk or by calling 514-790-2525.

Interstate 69 status will be subject of Monday afternoon meeting
Robert Moore, Arkansas Highway Commission; State Rep. Matthew Shepard of El Dorado, Arkansas I-69 Legislative Caucus; and Bossier City, LA, Mayor Lo Walker, president of the Interstate 69 Mid-Continent Highway.
Two major presentations are scheduled.
Scott Bennett, director of the AHTD and chairman of the I-69 Steering Committee, will talk about the overall status of Interstate 69 from Port Huron, MI, to the Lower Rio Grande Valley, and the status of the interstate in Arkansas.
Max LeComte, president and CEO of the Coordinating and Development Corporation of Shreveport, will focus on I-69 activities in Louisiana and East Texas.
Questions and comments will be heard from the audience.
Future activities of the Arkansas I-69 Coalition will also be discussed.
The superhighway will enter Arkansas on a new bridge that will cross the Mississippi River between Benoit, MS and Arkansas City, AR. The road will pass north of McGehee, to Monticello. It will cross the Ouachita River north of El Dorado, and bypass the northwest area of El Dorado. It will cross U.S. 82 between El Dorado and Magnolia, and enter Louisiana just north of Haynesville.
At present, the highway will cut through about 11 miles of Southwestern Columbia County, but no highway exits are planned in the county.
The only portion of Interstate 69 currently under construction in Arkansas is bypass around Monticello, which will connect with an extension of Interstate 530 from Pine Bluff.
