Lady Cards can be co-champs with win Saturday

first_img     Should Central Arkansas and Lamar both win, the teams would tie for the Southland title, but Central Arkansas would hold the tiebreaker advantage for the top seed.    All other scenarios would give the Lady Cardinals the No. 2 seed. In any event, Lamar has earned a bye into the tourney semifinals, meaning the Lady Cardinals won’t play until next Saturday in Katy.    “Having a bye into the semifinals is nice,” Harmony said. “It means you have to just win twice to win the tourney. That’s a lot better than having to win three or four games in as many days.”    Southeastern Louisiana (8-21, 7-10) has already been officially eliminated from tournament consideration, so Saturday’s game will be the last of the season for the Lady Lions.     Southeastern Louisiana was a 67-62 winner over Lamar back on Jan. 18 in Hammond, La.    Saturday will be Senior Day for Lamar, as the Lady Cardinals honor four players who will be playing their last regular-season game: Gia Ayers, Francesca Bellatin, Chantelle Brockett and Alice Robinson. Ayers, who leads Lamar in scoring (15.3), will be playing her 100th career game. The entire regular season for the Lamar Lady Cardinals boils down to one game: Saturday’s clash with Southeastern Louisiana at the Montagne Center. Tipoff is 4 p.m.    A win would give the Lady Cardinals (17-11 overall, 12-5 Southland Conference) a share of the conference crown for the first time since the 2009-10 season. A loss would leave Lamar tied for second.    “We have to give it everything we have,” Lamar coach Robin Harmony said. “We’d like to raise a banner next season.”    A Lamar win combined with a Stephen F. Austin win over Central Arkansas would give the Lady Cardinals a share of the Southland title with SFA and the top seed in next week’s Southland Conference Tournament. It would also assure a guaranteed berth in a postseason tournament.last_img read more

Beaumont man indicted for Port Arthur drive-by shooting

first_img One of the women made threatening comments, which were heard over the camera as they left.According to the probable cause affidavit, the three left in a silver or grey SUV that was parked in front of the house. The vehicle went a short distance, turned around and passed back by the residence, with the Ring camera capturing the scene as shots are fired at the house.A few days later the three went to the Port Arthur Police Department and made voluntary statements on the shooting.The man and one of the women maintained their innocence, but the second woman eventually implicated Senegal as the shooter, authorities said. A Beaumont man was indicted for deadly conduct in relation to a Port Arthur drive-by shooting caught on camera.A Jefferson County grand jury indicted DeMarcus Lee Senegal, 36, of Beaumont for the Dec. 9 shooting of a home in the 3000 block of South Park in Port Arthur.The targeted home is located near Tyrrell Elementary School and Iglesia Apostolic Church.The incident began with two women and a man showing up at the home with a disagreement over a phone. Their arrival was captured on the homeowner’’ Ring doorbell camera. No injuries were reported, and Port Arthur police did not specify how many shots were fired or how many struck the home.The deadly conduct charge is a third degree felony.An indictment is not a final conviction of guilt; it is only a ruling by the grand jury that allows the district attorney’s office to proceed with a criminal case.last_img read more

ASK A COP — Can I still drive with a missing passenger side mirror?

first_imgAnswer: You are correct in knowing that each state law may differ no matter how close the states are to each other. In the great state of Texas, there is NO law that states if you turn on windshield wipers your headlights must be on. I understand a motorist will turn on his or her wipers during inclement weather conditions. In Texas, there are three events that mandate the use of headlights: first, 30 minutes after sunset; second, 30 minutes before sunrise; and third, if visibility is less than a 1,000 feet, which equates to about three city blocks. Mary, with that said, it’s not a bad idea to turn on the headlights when it’s raining. Answer: I guess we need to make a public announcement for all motorists to “beware of garbage cans sitting on the side of the roadway; they are destroying side view mirrors” (smile). I have good news for you. If your driver’s side view mirror is in place, you are NOT in violation of the state of Texas Transportation Code. In the state of Texas all motorists are required to have at least one operable side view or one operable rear view mirror, where the driver can see behind them. Vehicles are manufactured with one rear view mirror and two side view mirrors. To be in compliance with the state of Texas, at least one of those mirrors have to be attached and operable.

If you happen to see me in public you can Ask A Cop! Mary Ann from Opelousas asks: I visit Port Arthur often, and oftentimes my family and I find ourselves comparing law differences in Texas and Louisiana. In Louisiana, the police are very strict concerning the windshield wiper/headlight law. In Louisiana, when you turn on your windshield wipers, you must turn on your car headlights. Is that the same law here in Texas? Kennedy from Vidor asks: I recently had a small fender bender, where my side view mirror hit a garbage can and fell off. Obviously, I didn’t do any damage to the garbage can, but my passenger mirror fell out and I need a replacement. I have to drive to Port Arthur for work and this is my only means of transportation. If I get stopped by the police, will I get a ticket for my missing side view mirror? Paul from Port Arthur asks: I have a small sports car that’s pretty fast. Let me clear the air, I’m not a speeder, I just like my car. My question is, let’s say the speed limit is 50 mph and I’m at a traffic light that’s red. When the light turns green, is it illegal to quickly get up to 50 mph? Answer: I was impressed to hear you’re not a speeder, even though you have a sports car. If you’re stopped at a traffic signal that’s red and it turns green, as long as you “DO NOT” do what’s commonly known as burn rubber from a stopped position, there’s no law governing how fast you can get up to 50 mph, as long as it can be done SAFELY! So, Paul, enjoy your sports car, drive safely and always remember speeding kills.last_img read more
