July 29, 2016 - Louisiana Teacher Honored by PBS, Remembering The Fallen, Louisiana Film Industry takes Hit, The Louisiana/Cuba Connection

Louisiana Teacher Honored by PBS (03:17) Cassie Krause of The Re-New Charter Network in New Orleans has been named a 2016 PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator. The national award honors teachers across the country who are tech-savy with a passion to use digital technology and media with their students. SHARE

Remembering The Fallen (04:10) Baton Rouge Police officers Matthew Gerald and Montrell Jackson along with East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Deputy Brad Garafola were honored this week at a memorial that included Vice President Joe Biden in attendance. The three law enforcement died in the line of duty on July 17th by Kansas City, Missouri, gunman Gavin Long. “I didn’t have the privilege of knowing these brave men. But I knew them,” Biden said.

Louisiana Film Industry takes Hit (11:47) Once dubbed “Hollywood South” by the film industry, Louisiana is seeing a downturn in movie production following lawmakers’ moves to cap the film tax credit redemption per year to $180 million. This year’s tax breaks were completely claimed with more than eleven months to go. Charlie Whinham looks at where Louisiana’s movie making industry goes from here, and finds not all filmmakers are disheartened by the tax credits cap. SHARE

The Louisiana/Cuba Connection (20:17) Cuba and the United States restored diplomatic relations on July 20, 2015. Although President Obama has called for the end of the U.S. economic embargo, U.S. law requires congressional approval to end it. That appears to be only a matter of time and many states, including Louisiana have already been working to develop new relations with the communist country. Two Louisiana convoys by state officials have already taken place. The most recent trip to Cuba included State Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Mike Strain and journalist Avery Davidson. They join us in the studio. SHARE
