While American Red Cross volunteers support our neighbors in Northeast Louisiana recovering from severe weather, the Red Cross in Northwest Louisiana urges residents to take steps now to stay safer as severe weather again threatens.Red-Cross101

“By preparing together for severe weather, we can make our families safer and our communities stronger,” said Michelle Davison, executive director of the Red Cross in North Louisiana. “We can help you and your family create a disaster preparedness plan now, before our community is threatened by high winds, hail, lightning and heavy rain.”

Red Cross volunteers from Northwest Louisiana today have joined others in and near Monroe after severe weather Wednesday night affected families in at least four parishes. The Red Cross is distributing supplies such as tarps, water and snacks, assessing damages, determining needs and providing services.

Trained volunteers from across the region stand ready to help if severe weather affects residents here. If you would like to become a trained Red Cross volunteer, go to redcross.org/Shreveport, whether you’re ready to help this weekend or perhaps later during hurricane season. Red Cross volunteers serve in dozens of roles, including preparedness efforts such as community education, disaster response (direct client services, support roles, disaster assessment, logistics), recovery efforts, public affairs, fundraising and office management. Volunteers serve for larger disasters like floods and hurricanes and also daily disasters like home fires that may affect one family at a time.

As with any disaster, preparation can be the difference between life and death. The Red Cross recommends that individuals and families prepare for severe weather by:

Downloading the free Emergency App.: The new Emergency App gives people instant access to weather alerts, life-saving information and ways to contact family and friends in one free, easy-to-use app for mobile devices. This all-inclusive app provides expert advice on what to do in case of disasters such as severe weather and tornadoes, as well as hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, home fires, wildfires and more. For example, it includes a high-pitched siren and warning alert that signals when a tornado warning has been issued, as well as an all-clear alert that lets users know when a tornado warning has expired or has been cancelled. The free Emergency App is available in app stores for smartphones and tablets by searching for the American Red Cross or by going to redcross.org/apps.

Making a Home Disaster Plan: Pick a safe place in your home for household members to gather during a storm. This should be away from windows, skylights and glass doors that could be broken by strong winds or hail. Protect your animals by ensuring that any outside buildings that house them are protected in the same way as your home. Remove animals from vulnerable dog houses and similar small structures.

Creating an Emergency Preparedness Kit: Pack a first aid kit and a seven-day supply of essential medications, foods that don’t require cooking or refrigeration and manual can opener, bottled water, flashlights and a battery-powered radio with extra batteries, copies of important documents like your insurance policies, cell phone chargers, family and emergency contact information, maps of the area and other emergency items for the whole family.

Heeding Storm Warnings:  A severe storm WATCH means severe thunderstorms are possible in and near the watch area.  People in a watch area should keep informed and be ready to act if a severe thunderstorm warning is issued. A severe storm WARNING means severe weather has been reported by spotters or indicated by radar.  Warnings indicate imminent danger to life and property. If you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be in danger from lightning. Seek shelter immediately. The National Weather Service recommends staying inside for at least 30 minutes after the last thunder clap.

Preparing for High Winds: If you have time, secure lawn furniture, outdoor decorations, trash cans, hanging plants and anything else that can be picked up by wind.

For more information on what to do before, during and after severe weather, please visit redcross.org/prepare/disaster/thunderstorm.

“We urge you to share these Red Cross severe weather preparedness tips with every member of your household, because the best protection is to be prepared ahead of time,” Davison said.

BENTON – A planned public hearing on a zoning amendment change for just over 146 acres that was once home to Palmetto Golf Course in Benton has been rescheduled to May 6.

Bossier Parish police jury members were forced to make the date change at their Wednesday regular meeting when problems arose with advertising the public hearing in the parish legal journal.

On rezoning issues, a hearing must be advertised in the parish official journal at least 10 days prior to the hearing and once per week for three consecutive weeks.

“It was a simple mistake. There were some personnel changes at the official journal and the advertisement did not run on consecutive dates as required,” parish administrator Bill Altimus explained.

Public hearings on two phases of proposed development at the property will be heard May 6. The first will consider an application by Southern Lifestyle Development, LLC, to change the zoning of the 146.56 acre former golf course from R-A (Residence-Agriculture) to R-1 (one-family residential).

A favorable recommendation for the planned single family detached home subdivision has been issued by the Benton-Bossier Parish Metropolitan Planning Commission.

Police jury members will also hear a request from the same developer for a zoning change on 8.41 acres on the east side of the golf course property. That request seeks to change the zoning from R-A to B-2 (neighborhood business district) for a proposed commercial development.

Members of the planning commission issued an unfavorable recommendation on that request.

Other public hearings were approved during the jury’s meeting. May 6 hearings were scheduled to consider approval of the plat for the proposed development of Hidden Trace subdivision, Unit 1A, and for plat approval for the development of Russell Family Partition.

Three hearings were scheduled for May 20. Those include approval of plats for proposed developments of Faith Estates subdivision, Unit 1, and King Woods subdivision, Unit 1. Also to be considered is plat approval of then Roby Road right-of-way dedication.

Also at Wednesday’s meeting, the police jury:

** proclaimed the month of April Fair Housing Month

** adopted a citizen participation plan and citizen complaint procedure

** selected projects to be funded through the fiscal year 2016/2017 Louisiana Community Development Block Grant program (LCDBG)

** authorized the selection and procurement of professional services for assisting in the development of fiscal year 2016/2017 LCDBG program applications and implementation of projects

** adopted a procurement policy for compliance with the 2016/2017 LCDBG program

** approved a request from the state Department of Transportation and Development for use of Caplis Sligo Road as the official detour route during the closure of the Sligo Road bridge over Red Chute Bayou

** approved change orders on phase 1 of the Kingston Road widening project and the parish’s wastewater collection system, and

** approved adopting a resolution authorizing the police jury to prepare and submit a pre-application in the area of Lucky Estates on La. Hwy 162 in connection with the statewide flood control program for implementation of a project for reduction of existing flood damages, providing necessary documentation of flood damages and any other related matters.

Terrence Antonio Harris

ORIGINAL STORY:
The Bossier City Police Department and Bossier Crime Stoppers are asking the public for help with finding a man who fired a gun into an apartment occupied by multiple people, including children.

Detectives with the Violent Crimes Unit have obtained an arrest warrant for Terrence Antonio Harris, 21, of Bossier City charging him with aggravated assault with a firearm. Harris is accused of firing a gunshot through the front door of his girlfriend’s apartment at the North Park Apartment complex in the 2500 block of Montgomery Lane late Monday night.

Detectives say shooting appears to have stemmed from an argument that Harris had earlier with his girlfriend who was inside the apartment at the time of the shooting along with another adult and three children. Fortunately none of them was injured. The round ended up crashing through a wall and into another apartment but did not hit anyone inside that second unit.

Harris is a black male, 5’7” tall and weighs about 140 pounds. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100. They can also submit a tip via the Bossier Crime Stoppers website – bossiercrimestoppers.org.

Callers to Bossier Crime Stoppers are reminded they may remain totally anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward if their information leads to an arrest.
