David you know it was very upsetting news is journalistically of this story about -- saw Laura Logan one being attacked over there and Egypt yeah. You know and brings up a whole question about whether. West enough female journalists even belong in places him or her work is so greatly admired and and appreciated right here our own newsroom and she just. You know she's one of those incredible front line -- reporters such -- McCormick. Was another one on I was a different incident where she was sitting here by an explosive device and and the still wants to go back and is still going back and covering in Afghanistan. Tough ladies. Very tough lady. Close a couple of the most now with a common form and send news wasn't near as bad as what happened -- know Laura Logan but that -- been groped and mistreated and out. And beaten and even some of the male reporters to you know. Clinton the question I know we always discuss and -- was -- journalists and and they all agreed that you know certainly this is not. Indicative of the entire Muslim nation -- Egypt of people there was a certain individuals who acted like this but marked. Question is what is going to be an action taken here forward. Now certainly someone knows who the perpetrators of this who was involved in this are they gonna be hunted down tracked down and brought to justice because. If you look at this happening in this country the other way a foreign journalist here covering an issue in some Americans 200 -- strong attack this person and brutally. Sexually attacked him and beat them. Do you think we would catch up with -- -- bring in the justice in this garage where I think we trying. And I don't think they leave any stone until it is unclear now whether they will do what determines on. What our opinion should be of Muslim nations like Egypt and apparently there won't be footage that -- scoured by the FBI and others Stewart. Hopefully come down on these people well I don't know if the FBI has any jurisdiction of Basra in Communists going to be up to -- -- -- country and then what actions they take if they do catch. Maybe don't work with a sign on -- several tough case -- the first security hashed I don't want to say. Journalists. Have put their lives on the line for as long as you're gonna remember. And or whether it was in the world wars or want to. Bad things can happen now got a lot of respect for the work she does -- and knowing how are I think she's you -- see you you haven't seen the last of this is not gonna discourage -- she's a very determined individual you know great CBS news all right thank you David or David Blake in the double the deal news from a lots of topics we covered today we're gonna talk about a couple more this hour. On the bad girls boot camp story will be talking in my opinion that will be followed up with -- LSU baseball head coach pulmonary they kick off the season tonight up and Alex box. Given the complete rundown of what to expect in the 2011 tigers but right now let's introduce my -- mayor of -- Mike thanks for being with -- who -- Uploaded on what to be here. Well if the people who have not heard about it gonna give us a little background on the bed girls boot camp coming McKenna what is all about. Well you know its its its -- something around all happened about two or three weeks ago is when we first kind of got some knowledge of it will be coming to -- We didn't really know what you know -- to -- was all about again I've never seen the show I don't want the oxygen channel this because I've never seen it. And councilman to branch has got -- -- some real bad complaint from the neighbors. And it goes all kind of things going on at the house so code when outbid us if there -- any violation there was nothing that that was in the in violation of code he had done to the house. Chief -- got involved and make -- we did he killed -- out there and so council to French or their foray meeting. With all the neighbors and the production crew and a realtor -- that we sent that up earlier this week have it was kind of a fact finding meeting Graf also so we can get all the particulate. And you know basically you know whatever it got to remember this is not this is all about this how it's being an all one residential quality of life and traffic and noise issues and chateau its -- specifically governed by -- common. And they in the individual residents of chateau could even take that confidence. To try to do what they could just stop this production because of the new sense that there had. I guess they'd they would say it's. Causing in the neighborhood with this production and I think their biggest issue -- only the time this production was happening from and that people gonna be living -- thousand -- normal filming court people just -- and they filmed on the day are they -- nineteen and they leave I mean African this you know. -- neighbor than half and they said oh yes this is 24/7 seven days a week. Well I can certainly understand the neighborhoods concerned because I'm quoting here from a website description of one of the bottom it says the show chronicles the adventures and happenings of seven women. With -- various mental and behavioral issues these bad girls most lived together for four months trying to accomplish certain goals in the process. Fighting between the girls is inevitable the show has inspired to spin -- love games bad girls need love too bad -- road trip. Except for season five which we shot in Miami all of them have been. Filmed in Los Angeles and I would have to say this is importing domestic abuse into your neighborhood -- asking for it. While allowing something like this to go on the -- what I'm understanding we got an update now on instead of a long drawn out possible court battle when this is could be determined to be a nuisance or whatever. There was an ordinance as being applied here that's gonna prevent this from happening in my correct. I and that's -- that's that's bits. Guilt all warned in the shadow competent that are in place adopted by the City Council in 1972. Would be inception -- -- when it was all -- developed. And that's and that's what we getting help again I'm not the movie industry don't cling to make. But -- the to make the type an investment that there will making into this neighborhood I think I would have done my due diligence and actually. And the city -- well there any laws and covenants -- -- I mean they they did did you diligent when he came to permit states they need a permit for temporary and they went and met and did that we allowed back any resident did that need to -- -- we can allow those types of things are they have to sit you know we have been -- they would -- -- plumbing. Electrical mechanical structural for the house than they weren't so they didn't acquire coal permit so that it again. Some of this is new territory for general when it comes to that -- what it has opened our -- -- and look we welcome the film industry in general we can't we want productions and -- but where the administration -- mr. branch of the gonna be asking the council. Look at some procedures and we put the legislation port hopefully -- the next council meeting should just the kind of have a one stop shop. -- -- films that come into the ferry not to be a hindrance to the film's. But -- help -- they're saying hey lucky you know you park segments great want to let me -- -- the -- apartment so we nature of our watched. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- and we had -- the movies and videos and different things -- being inner calm that back when I lived on that street is still not HBO made for TV movie their for a couple weeks -- we've always had these kind of things in there are we just wanna be a little more helpful to -- And then by talking to a little more we can trying to find these things out in guide him in the right direction bunch -- in the house so private that went down. How would've thought the -- confidence would have been shared with beyond they'll grow. I don't know why it wasn't when we presented it to on the night of the when they meeting they -- thought that was the first time they've been. I was talking with Mikey NER Kenner mayor about the booting -- of a program the oxygen channel's. Bad girls boot camp by an ordinance in chateau states the location ma'am will prevent them from doing that. Mike diocese they've been notified have you heard from them are they are basically looking elsewhere now and giving on this or. They came to the council meeting last night some of the producers to answer any questions the council had com and an Internet that's about it I mean we we've met with them yesterday at 1030 trying to let him know. App that we heard all the particulars about what was happening in the neighborhood in hearing some of the concerns that the residents and they can have some concern that I will spend a production company work with a we told -- we need another detailed officer. Yet to combat some of the traffic that was gonna become a damaged beach street and the little one caught it received. Last week -- about traffic in the -- and get a call about the production it would just concern you know concerning traffic of the word was spreading -- -- That it was being filmed there and -- -- way out automatically took care that -- -- to be killed off but there and increasing the idea -- the unit can get in the control over there to make sure traffic was being in you know combat and in that area people -- hearing -- people. You've said that you you certainly don't wanna discourage any in this type of industry from coming into the city. -- do you think that this is gonna spread to other production companies well are there really tough over there -- don't want -- -- counseling I don't think so Milan almost a -- doesn't productions of this nature that would wanna come. Anna and I would hope it would first person in the certainly but I again there -- the difference between a film. And a reality show -- -- and that's that's that's what they give. -- the major sticking point -- -- the duration of the time they were going to be here we have a film being -- the paint and that's gonna be on a on major boulevard and on -- on a side street. They contact the public works got the road closure talks at a police Barbara and they're doing their due diligence to do that and and I'm thankful it come to -- I'm glad the state has the tax incentives that does for the movie industry to come here. And of course we welcome but they've got you know there's no usurping the laws we've got to follow the law. Well thankfully there was an ordinance there that that could be applied in this case to eliminate any further battles and controversy over I think it was handled very well.

You can't find one can't get the call through it simply email me it's Donna WWL dot com a number of topics we covered a lot of ground this morning we start off with senator David bitter. I'm talking about a number of things. The people in charge. Of of that drilling permits says not their job to issue on the -- shocked a lot of people. Although there haven't been any permits issued and David -- sending off letters and trying to. I get the Obama administration to admit that -- we do indeed have a de facto drilling moratorium here in the gulf. Also he sent a very critical attitude. On the administrator of the GC CF Kenneth Feinberg. David -- partially tracked fourteen -- At town hall meetings people were promised a claimants that their claims would be processed. I want that did not come through we confronted -- defined Bergen said in fact suggested that because eight. Those 12% of his monthly time was wasted because he did not get that done what he promised. That 12% of is a 150000. Dollar a month salary from BP would amount to about a 105000. And he should take that and contribute that to the fisherman for aids fund which I think is a pretty good idea. Also we talked to Billy none guest sir about the new loans to Venice project funding our lack thereof. Apparently now even though we have been promised that the money was allocated to the corps of engineers to construct that Levy from New Orleans down to Venice. Throughout cost increased a -- Stop the project in its tracks and then now they may have to go back to the drawing board and do another cost benefit dollar ratio study to find out if the additional money. Is justified and they're also asking the state Louisiana to come up with 35%. Of that. Then we talked to Randy Pacino and and were also Randy with the department Wallace and fisheries. Standing behind their claim that Louisiana seafood there has not been one piece of contaminated seafood found. Thousands of tests being conducted -- -- more skeptical and critical saying. Not enough testing has been done in the making some statements about the future of that. Really great can't tell from the according to her opinion. From the research that has been done. -- asking you to weigh in that's our opinion poll question. Louisiana officials actually say you did -- 163062. Or 63 pounds I believe it is of both shrimp. Every day. For. For five years and still not reached the harmful level of PA UH's. 73% of US saying. That you basically eat the same amount as you did before the oil crisis at 10% beating a little less than 10% actually eating more. And 6% -- on the attention -- stuff. Again it's always very amazing and interesting to see the -- the country's reaction. To what they've forcing your -- to be contaminated a compromise seafood when. In effect they buyout by -- millions of pounds this imported seafood. I catfish and shrimp and crawfish and other products that come into this country that are much much more. -- home full name and then anything that's been found in this country. There we just spoke to -- my Guinea the mayor of Canon. Find out we -- an update in the bad girls boot camp situation -- residents of chateau states will be bad for battled to prevent them from. Shooting this four month reality show that. I'm basically highlights. Girls with meddle in issues and problems in relationships. Tom basically inviting domestic abuse incidents is Indian neighborhood while I found out a way to keep it out there is an ordinance that it would be in violation of that. More than four unrelated people can live in a single family residence so that being in the covenant -- simplifies that situation. Among many any toll said they gonna go to the drawing board may be outlined some more specific. Regulations and guidelines for shooting movies in ten -- which they welcome and into quite a bit up. Well coming up next we're gonna end Aaron and -- -- my shift anywhere will be talking to LSU baseball head coach and that's always a pleasure. Pulmonary LSU baseball seeding season starts off tonight there and Alex box against Wake Forest. We'll find out from coach canary what you'll be looking at what to expect and also got a couple of changes in NCAA. College Baseball will be talking to pulmonary right after the news and we have David. Why -- driving simulator. Because you can afford to wait to know you can't afford not to listen the news talk and sports leader. Big 871053. WW LF and WWL dot com. And. Don't just love that song. -- a middle O'Leary and Susan back there and Alison bell in their chances -- that we know get your fired up kid's baseball. Center field and John Paul -- And it's time to talk some very special baseball I'm -- and LSU tiger baseball and witness's head coach home American Paula US fired up as we are about tonight's opening game. I thought and I don't the I thought fired at the opening day. And you know -- -- eternal though -- through the data -- to be here a little bit. -- -- and even got some good baseball type weather. -- before we get into the 20s11 tigers sub a couple of changes people may not be aware about in in collegiate baseball one is dealing with the composition of the bat so tell us about that in in what if any changes it may -- to the game and even the ports. He had this is the third time the NCAA -- change the -- -- Anderson the last. Couple of -- look out the last decade netcast. And it's when the pretty dramatic change they change the composition that they aluminum. And please don't ask me to explain that the government an engineer good. They do what they attacked the that they try to make the fact perform more like what that would. We expect that it could take quite a bit of offense out of the year college game including -- you know limiting the whole months. But you know we've been using aluminum bed at least -- aluminum bats they'll for a few weeks and a player he used to Berlin and -- they're gonna have a great impact this may be weak feared at first so. Whether they do whether they don't go level playing field everybody uses the same -- so struck me an excuse for anybody. Have any of your players particularly may be the long ball hitters suggested to use that there is a marked difference in the distance they get. Whether that's forty years you can tell that -- they. I thought the players but I can it was my own eyes two -- you don't think it's many bulked out of the ballpark in batting practice from. You know it it's somebody who rarely get torn right they'll still under the long wait but which are not interfere a lot of cheap home runs. -- a little guys hitting home runs that there may be your typical home run hitter. Also a cautionary. 12 clock in baseball this is something that the -- -- have been Clement for a lot of people to speed the game up. Much how's it gonna work in what are your thoughts on. Well I obviously I think there's different ways which can speed the pace of play out by a ball for speeding the pace of play up anything to make became more attractive to fingerprint. Don't think many people like it now there is certain that there were three hour and forty a minute gave up walker been repaid the player but I think that is if -- -- Effect that it is a positive way then that's a good thing. However I also don't wanna keep became change stealing -- panel -- give it because. You know -- get out on the field quickly enough for something like bad. We did use this clocked in the air interment last year I dedicate your -- shipment port it was very very strict policy. It is it's clear that the pay for play it it it really changed the game that was fine but I'm concerned about this year that also we've got umpires. It -- can't wait to keep fit penalize the pitcher a ball because. He didn't start to wind up within 12 -- the clock ex aren't gonna like a quarterback -- in the snapped off and a football game. -- yard penalty and I think are certainly changing nature of the game I wouldn't like this -- Yeah emerging even took on special precaution. You made that statement that you press conference about you know someone asked what happens when the catcher makes the third out. When he's got to get back -- get his gear on and get out there and he's under the Clark. I -- you have actually a couple of state managers that are. We. -- -- -- -- -- scheduled to be ready now -- character here laid out kind of like the mother dressing it's probably get first school. So people are not Haitian guards they're putting on his chest protector and gave them a glass of water balloon did out there on the field it's kind of like -- -- there's there's Daytona 500 or some. Well we certainly like to see the games speeded up and I don't know about pit stops in baseball that will see how that all works out. I'll talk talk a little bit about the team is cell phone guy you lost some guys Blake dean Mikey gives Anthony Romano all gone and you got a lot of youth on his team. Yet you're you're exactly right in this that the nature of College Baseball unfortunately used in the players come of the players and that leaving. Here -- are you get attached to be scared that their love these kids like bone -- apparently being -- Renato. Leon Landry might -- -- than before that the year before we lost geared Mitchell unlikely -- amendment. TJ LeMay you're in and there are -- other than you do execute these -- go -- it. In reality here is what you know -- doesn't stand still and they come bill are sure they get an education they have a baseball experience so clearly leave their mark. I Lipton championship play and then they go on to play at the professional level it's they can make a living out of it. What happened than you know greatly but I live crop with its government won't effect the -- backed group and hopefully can molded into something -- So you know it's it's standard yards -- it's still it's also exciting time because. -- have all the new body and then you know these kids they're like bungee you know they wanna learn and they wanna. I wanna get better and they wanna create your own experience -- -- -- memory so you know it it keeps me young man for short because their -- and new year and it's here it's it's certainly and magnified because cap for our -- its first year player. The -- -- head coach of LSU tiger baseball while pulmonary they kick off the season against Wake Forest with a home game and Alex box tonight which you'll hear on WWL 870 AM. Always come back wanna talk about that pitching staff it's headed up by a junior Matty -- -- -- -- of a disappointing season last year so I guess that's the biggest question mark is what the tigers pitching will be this year back with head coach pulmonary right after this on the VH 77 WO. The station that gets you through hurricanes and everyday storms. The news talk and sports leader of big 871053. WWL FM and WWL dot com. And LSU tiger baseball begins tonight -- game 6451. Pitch at 7 o'clock -- Wake Forest vs L issue and Alex box stadium head coach pulmonary joins us this morning to talk about the 2011 tigers and our coach scenario lost a lot of pitching and we've got Jr. many ironies is senior guy on the team right now a lot of freshman and sophomore going to be you know we gonna be okay with a consent. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- There haven't been in the program for forty years and end court the end of last year thirty determined there was -- he he pitched a one hit China this gentleman. Keep them. Don't think that the -- and it -- of -- great. Well look -- they're they're they're they're Michael cook he gets put off to a good start accord that we get through the end of the game we've got -- -- We struggled last year kind but we know many capable of being out any cook. It's everything in between -- -- -- guys -- the big question mark but I can pay a bit. They may not have much experience that they do have a lot of talent we have two very strong -- since it's good. I think you're gonna have about in career Fidel assurances the -- -- get them out there in Sydney experience under their belt. Well you do have some veterans on the offensive side you you know Mike you must took coming back I -- I'm sure believe -- While among them all Austin Nolan short third base is currently available planned third this year. He has Tyler looked at flop Palin. And a freshman phenom. Jacoby Jones moved into effect in color of their third and I think that's really going to help or infield consistently like consistently -- That should be good if you could describe.
