But we have to wait to see what they turn the No. 4 pick into before we really judge this trade.WWLs Steve Geller seems similarly skeptical.This deal does not feel like a big win for the Pelicans, he said, noting that Ingram has had injury issues, much has been made of Balls attitude the next Eric Gordon wonders Steve, and with Davis now paired with LeBron James, the Lakers first-round picks after the upcoming draft may not be worth as much.The Pelicans already have the number one overall pick in next weeks NBA draft, and speculation has been running high that they will select Dukes Zion Williamson.The NBA draft is Thursday, June 20.Click here to read more from The New Orleans Advocate.

She held a statewide listening tour in 2009 to consider a challenge against then-U.S. Senator David Vitter in 2010.

The increase has prompted NOAA Fisheries to declare an Unusual Mortality EventThis declaration allows an investigative team to look into the high number of dolphin deaths stretching from Louisiana through the Florida panhandle.Dr. Terri Rowles, NOAA Fisheries Coordinator, has issued a statement informing the public what to do if they come into contact with any stranded mammals.Its important that the public not approach any marine mammal in distress and not approach or disturb carcasses. You can hurt yourself, as well as the animal, not to mention its illegal.NOAA urges anyone who finds a stranded dolphin to call 1-877-Whale-Help.Of the mammals theyve been able to perform necropsies on, 23-percent have shown skin lesions consistent with fresh water. There are concerns the recent openings of the Bonne Carre Spillway has increased the amount of fresh water and pollutants into the Gulf, which could be contributing factors.Theres a number of factors that well be looking at as part of this investigation, but its too early at this point to say what may be causing the mortalities, said Dr. Erin Fougeres with NOAA Fisheries Southeast Region.The area where the dolphins have shown an increase of deaths includes the area where the Deepwater Horizon Explosion impacted the gulf in 2010. Rowles says previous studies have shown abnormal reproduction rates of mammals from the oil spill.As part of this investigation, working to investigate whether the event could be related or partially related to any long term effects from the oil spill.Of the 260 recorded dolphin deaths, Louisiana has reported 89, Mississippi 121, Alabama 32 and Florida 37.

They should be able to receive them soon, but that will be up to the state and the state will begin the process of making them whole.Funds will not be immediately available for those who make more than 120 percent of the area-median income. They will need to file for a hardship waiver, but Cassidy says the barrier to receive that waiver should be set low enough to include people above that income line.The federal government has to approve, but the state can write the eligibility rules, and we think that the state has the ability to write these rules so that most folks in that category will be eligible for the RESTORE Louisiana grant.Cassidy says the news should relieve some of the stress from thousands who were saddled with significant amounts of debt in the aftermath of the flood, or who just couldnt afford to finish repairing their homes.Youre still hearing of families living in conditions that are just awful, with no drywall, saddled with great debt. So this is the beginning of the end.President Trump signed legislation fixing the duplication of benefits loophole in October of 2018, but the change was challenged bureaucratically by some federal agencies.
