Asian hornet not found in Louisiana

LSU AgCenter experts have been getting inquiries from the public about Asian giant hornets, but it’s not believed the insects have spread to Louisiana.

“We’ve been getting a lot of phone calls and emails,” said AgCenter public health entomologist Kristen Healy.

Some calls have been made by people who suspect they have seen one of the hornets that turn out to be other insects.

“There are a lot of things that look like them,” Healy said.

Pandemic may cost local governments over $1 billion

(The Center Square) – Fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic may cost Louisiana local government entities between $404 million and $1.1 billion by the end of the next fiscal year, the Louisiana Legislative Auditor estimates.

The pandemic, and the deliberate economic slowdown meant to contain the pandemic, are leading to lower tax and royalty collections for municipalities, parishes, school boards and sheriff’s offices.

The federal government has allocated $1.8 billion to help Louisiana governments, and 45 percent of that money is supposed to go to local entities, while the state can spend 55 percent. However, officials say the money must pay for efforts to fight the disease and cannot be used to plug budget holes.

Contrast that to grocery shopping now. Customers wearing homemade cloth masks are finding those same grocery aisles depleted.

Food shortages at the retail level and milelong lines of cars at local food banks occurred at the same time as news of plowed-under vegetable and fruit crops in Florida and California and dumping of milk in Wisconsin. How did we get to the point of dumping food in the glare of food insecurity for 37 million Americans and an estimated increase of 17.1 million unemployed due to the coronavirus?
