La. Departments of Wildlife, Fisheries to seek fee increases

La. Departments of Wildlife, Fisheries to seek fee increases

(The Center Square) – The heads of two state agencies – one in charge of hunting and fishing, the other overseeing environmental protection – told the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday they intend to seek higher fees.

Jack Montoucet, who leads Louisiana’s Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, wants to raise the price of user fees such as the cost of recreational hunting and fishing licenses. He said the fees have not been adjusted in 20 years even though the department has taken on additional duties.

Gov. John Bel Edwards has included a $17 million infusion in his proposed budget for next fiscal year as a short-term fix. Montoucet didn’t lay out the details of his fee increase proposal, which the Louisiana Legislature would have to approve, but he said it would raise an additional $17 million annually.

Declining mineral revenue and people buying lifetime licenses are among the main reasons for the revenue decline, officials said.

Locals urged to join April’s Sabine Trash Bash cleanup

Locals urged to join April’s Sabine Trash Bash cleanup

The month-long Sabine Parish Trash Bash planned by the Sabine Leaders Against Litter, March 27-April 24, is an opportunity to assist and encourage residents, businesses, churches, schools, sport teams, and civic groups to participate in working toward a more positive goal of a “clean Sabine” and the improvement in the quality of our everyday lives. A 4 week-long parish wide trash cleanup will give Sabine Parish communities time to get the deplorable conditions of some of our roadways, street, public areas, waterways, and communities cleaned up. Trash and litter along our highways and streets impact our lives and gives a negative impression for our residents and our community.

Litter is costly. In Louisiana, an estimated $40 million in taxpayer dollars are spent each year on litter removal, abatement, education and enforcement. It costs $11.5 billion every year to clean up litter in the U.S. according to a study conducted by Keep Louisiana Beautiful.

Mansfield battlefield among those targeted for protection

The latest campaign by the American Battlefield Trust to protect historic landscapes includes 20 acres at Mansfield, La., where an 1864 battle figured significantly in the larger strategies that characterized the final year of the American Civil War.

“There is simply no substitute for walking on the very ground where important history happened,” said Trust President David Duncan. “Protecting these landscapes ensures that future generations will always be able to explore and learn from our unique American battlefields.”

In the spring of 1864, Union forces launched an offensive known as the Red River Campaign. Its objective was to capture Louisiana’s Confederate capital at Shreveport and then open the gateway for Federal troops to enter Texas.

Louisiana expands COVID-19 vaccination eligibility

(The Center Square) – Louisiana residents who work in a wide range of new job categories will be added Monday to the list of people eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccinations, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced Thursday.

Newly eligible job categories include higher education, food and agriculture, manufacturing, grocery stores, transportation, water and wastewater, energy, bank tellers, construction, clergy, information technology and communications, media, public safety, frontline government workers, family service workers, veterinarians, waste management, security and emergency preparedness.

The Sabine Parish Leaders Against Litter met on March 15, 2021, after not being able to meet for over a year due to the pandemic. The period of March 27 – April 24, 2021 was set to get the deplorable conditions of some of our roadways, streets, public areas, and communities cleaned up.

Sheriff Aaron Mitchell and his chief deputy, Brad Walker, were in attendance at the meeting. Sheriff Mitchell explained that Covid-19 had impacted the inmate work program and all inmate crews were kept in the detention center off work detail due to the pandemic. They began picking up trash along state highways a few weeks ago, but it will take about 10 months to cover all state highways in the parish. The public is being asked to assist.
