Pitbull Regulation Expanded in East Baton Rouge Parish

One of the proposed ordinances before the Metro Council is Mike Walker’s proposal to target pitbulls in East Baton Rouge Parish. The rules are aimed to keep others safe from bites, requiring warning signs to be posted on properties and pitbulls to be muzzled. However, these measures have garnered protest. The Advocate reports on how Walker is changing the ordinance to make it more palatable:

“The ultimate object of all this is to get at least seven council
votes for a stronger law. Well, I can’t do that if I stay
breed-specific. Reality sets in,” he said. …

Instead of targeting pit
bulls, Walker said, he wants the regulations to apply to any breed of
dog that bites someone or is deemed a dangerous or vicious dog due to
behavioral problems.

Broadmoor Park Community Involvement

Baton Rouge community participation is one of the things that makes living in Baton Rouge desirable. And now, reports The Advocate, the Broadmoor Park community is getting involved in a worthy project:

With the help of an Entergy grant and support from the city-parish, a
group of Broodmoor residents is kicking off an Adopt-a-Tree program for
the more than 100 live oaks in the median of Goodwood Boulevard east of
Airline Highway.

This is not the first Baton Rouge community to become involved with Adopt-a-Tree. Last year a successful program was launched in the Garden District.

Louisiana Gubernatorial Candidate Stops in Baton Rouge

Bobby Jindal, a Republican congressman, made a campaign stop in Baton Rouge, focusing his remarks on his gubernatorial campaign promise to stamp out corruption. WAFB reports on his remarks concerning a special legislative session he will call if elected:

Jindal said the special session "will be devoted exclusively to making Louisiana the best, not the worst, in the country when it comes to ethics standards," Jindal told a gathering of supporters.   "I’m here to ask you to join me," Jindal said.  "Join me in a war on corruption.  Join me in a war on incompetence.   Join me in a war against out of control government spending."

Jindal is a Baton Rouge native, and is hoping to drum up support in his home town.
