Efforts to increase enrollment at Central Louisiana universities seem to be working. Louisiana State University of Alexandria announced a 21-percent increase for the fall at a news conference Monday. It’s the largest enrollment at the school since 2008 and largest year-to-year increase since 1987, according to the university. Northwestern State also reported a small increase Monday, pushing the school’s enrollment past 9,000 students.

A Democrat-leaning group has filed a complaint accusing U.S. Sen. David Vitter of violating a state campaign finance law. The American Democracy Legal Fund accused Republican Vitter and his Senate campaign of impropriety in contributing $100,000 to a group supporting his 2015 governor’s race bid.


When the Saints play the Minnesota Vikings in the dome Sunday, there will be a recognizable name on the playing field. Less than a week after he was charged with child abuse, star running back Adrian Peterson is cleared to play. The Vikings’ owners say they want to let the legal process play out before any other playing decisions are made.


According to State Farm, the number of vehicle-deer collisions are on the rise in Louisiana. Spokesman Gary Stephenson says there was a nearly six-percent increase in these accidents in the state. Stephenson says there were over 9,700 vehicle-deer collisions in the Bayou State last year.


The recent indictment of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson on child abuse charges has opened a nationwide discussion on disciplining children with corporal punishment. Peterson allegedly used a switch, a tree branch stripped of its leaves, on his son reportedly causing multiple injuries to the child. State Department of Children and Family Services Secretary Suzy Sonnier says corporal punishment is considered legal in Louisiana within reason.


Attorneys for the state Department of Corrections are asking a federal appellate court to reverse a judge’s ruling that said conditions on death row at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola are unconstitutional during the summer.

The Saints are 0-and-2 and now their leading rusher will reportedly miss the next four weeks, because of a broken hand. ESPN reports running back Mark Ingram suffered the injury in Sunday’s heartbreaking loss against Cleveland.
