    Sheriff Hebert Encourages Safe and Responsible Use of Fireworks
     
    The St. Mary Parish Council recently approved and enacted a new parish ordinance regulating the use of fireworks in the unincorporated areas of the parish. The new parish law allows certain fireworks to be sold and set off during certain times of the year. According to the ordinance, “Fireworks may be used, set off or shot from June 25 to July 5 and from December 15 to January 1 from the hours of 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. Additional hours of fireworks use will be allowed from 10:00 pm on July 4 to 1:00 am July 5, and from 10:00 pm December 24 to 1:00 am December 25 and from 10:00 pm December 31 to 1:00 am January 1.”
     
    However, some fireworks remain prohibited. The ordinance lists the following types of fireworks that are still off-limits even with the new ordinance in effect:
    - Cherry bombs
    - Tubular salutes
    - Two inch American salutes
    - Firecrackers with casings the external dimensions of which exceed 1½ inches in length or one-fourth of an inch in diameter
    - Repeating bombs
    - Aerial bombs
    - Torpedoes which exceed three-eighths of an inch in diameter
    - Roman candles larger than ten balls
    - Sky rockets larger than six ounces
     
    The new ordinance also prohibits igniting fireworks within 1,000 feet of a church, hospital, school, or public building.
    The St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office offers these safety tips from the National Council on Fireworks Safety for the responsible use of fireworks this Independence Day holiday:
    - Do not consume alcohol prior to or during the handling of fireworks.
    - Designate a responsible adult to supervise all firework activities for your family. Never give fireworks to children.
    - Read the cautionary labels and performance descriptions before igniting.
    - Always have a bucket of water and a water hose that is turned on and ready to go nearby.
    - Wear safety glasses when shooting fireworks.
    - Light one firework at a time and then quickly move away.
    - Only use fireworks outdoors in a clear area; away from buildings and vehicles.
    - Never relight a “dud” firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water.
    - Never carry fireworks in your pocket or shoot them into metal or glass containers.
    - Do not experiment with homemade or attempt to alter or modify fireworks. Use fireworks only in the manner for which they were intended.
    - Dispose of spent fireworks by wetting them down and place in a metal trash can away from any building or combustible materials until the next day.

    Too many damn rules!! Other Parishes never have problems with fireworks and why does St. Mary Parish wanta be such pansies!!
    3 days ago Floyd LeBlanc
    Really They might as well legalize because they were poping them anyway and law enforce did nothing about it. You think they will follow the rules? I don't think so but law enforcement will still not do any thing about enforcing the law.

    It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of William "Matthew" Boyne, the 22 year old son of KQKI General Manager, Julie Boyne, and her husband Doody. Please keep Matthew's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. “Fly High Matt….and be forever young….”
     
    WILLIAM MATTHEW BOYNE
    11-01-1993 – 06-17-2016
     
    William Matthew Boyne left his legacy at the young age of 22 years old on Friday, June 17, 2016. ‘’Matt Matt,’’ as he was lovingly called, lived a brave and adventurous life in those 22 years. At the drop of a hat he was known to turn even the most mundane week night into one to be remembered just by being the brightest light in the room. If you were lucky enough to be a part of his world, you knew Matt would literally give you the shirt off his back. He loved and gave with all his heart to everyone he met. Matt’s life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him, understood that the quality of existence far exceed the quantity of time in which one lives.
     
    Matthew was born November 1, 1993 in Alexandria, Louisiana, to Edward “Doody” and Julie Boyne. He was a resident of Patterson, La. He graduated from Patterson High School in 2012.
     
    Matt is survived by his parents, Doody and Julie Boyne of Patterson; brother, Mike Boyne and his wife Stephanie of Lafayette; sisters, Kelly Richter of Dallas Tx, Kitrena Spivey of Lafayette and Tiffany Summers of Lafayette. He was “Uncle Matt Matt” to McKenzie, Marley, Jackson, Parker, Daschel, Katherine and Baylin, all of whom he loved with all his heart. He is also survived by uncles, Larry Hobbs, Michael (Gail) Boyne and Shine Boyne; aunts, Linda (Jim) Oakley, Nanny- Helen (Henry) LaFleur, Brenda Green, Catherine (Abner) Tabor, Arlene (Jim) McKinney, and Marlene Boyne. He is also survived by his Parrain, Scott Green, and numerous cousins and friends that he considered family. He also leaves behind his fur brother and sister, Bear and Baby Girl, as well as his fur nephew, Pike.
     
    He was preceded in death by his Paternal Grandparents, H.P. Boyne and Ruby Boyne; his Maternal Grandparents, Barney and Fannie Hobbs; Aunt Kathy Hobbs Sewall; and Uncle Dwight Boyne.
     
    Visitation will be held at Twin City Funeral Home on Wednesday June 22 from 5pm –10pm with a service at 7pm. Following his wishes, Matthew will be cremated.
     
    “Fly High Matt….and be forever young….”

Troopers located a green 1997 Ford F-150 and the driver at the time of the crash, Darrell Barlow, 52 year old of Chauvin, LA. Barlow was arrested and transported to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Center and booked into the facility on charges of Vehicular Homicide, Felony Hit and Run, Improper Lane Usage, and Obstruction of Justice.
     
    Original Release – Troopers from Louisiana State Police Troop C are asking for the public’s assistance in investigating a fatal hit and run crash involving a pedestrian.

    Chitimacha Tribal Chairman Arrested in Casino Theft Scheme
     
    St. Mary Parish - In January 2016, the Louisiana State Police Indian Gaming Unit (Cypress Bayou Field Office) received a criminal complaint regarding the Cypress Bayou Casino’s General Manager Anthony Patrone and Chief Financial Officer Montie Spivey. The complaint also involved Chitimacha Tribal Chairman O’Neal Darden, Jr.
     
    The complaint alleged the manipulation of the casino’s employee and payroll databases that resulted in Darden receiving a several thousand dollar annual bonus that he was not entitled to. The scheme was facilitated by Patrone and Spivey. They instructed the casino’s Human Resource Department to reactivate Darden, who was no longer an employee of the casino, in the employee database to give the appearance that he qualified for an annual bonus. Once Darden was shown as an active employee in the database, Patrone and Spivey directed the Accounting Department to electronically transfer the bonus money into Darden’s personal checking account.
     
    A follow-up investigation by State Police Investigators resulted in the arrests of both Patrone and Spivey on the charges of Felony Theft, Computer Fraud, and Obstruction of Justice. Patrone and Spivey were both booked into the St. Mary Parish Detention Facility in February 2016. Additionally, an arrest warrant was secured for Darden on the charge of Felony Theft. Darden's arrest was postponed due to the Tribal-State Compact procedural requirements pertaining to arresting enrolled Tribal members.
     
    In subsequent discussions with the U.S. Attorney's Office and the Chitimacha Tribe, it was decided that the state would effectuate the arrest and prosecution of Darden. In a collaborative agreement between State Police and the Chitimacha Tribe, Darden self-surrendered himself to State Police Investigators on June 20, 2016, and was booked on Felony Theft charges at the St. Mary Parish Detention Facility.

    Four Shot In Berwick
     
    Berwick Police Chief James Richard has confirmed to KQKI News that four individuals were shot on Sixth Street in Berwick on Friday night. Richard said a large group had gathered at the Masonic Lodge which included entertainment by a rapper from the Thibodaux area. Around 11:45, an altercation began inside the building which then moved outside, along with a large group of bystanders. Richard said at that point about 30 rounds of gunshots were fired from an unknown type of weapon, possibly a semi-automatic pistol, which resulted in four victims being shot. Two victims were transported to Lafayette General Medical Center, while two were transported to Teche Regional Medical Center. All injuries appear to be non life-threatening. One victim has since been released from the hospital while three remain hospitalized. Two of the victims have undergone surgery. The incident remains under investigation and suspects have yet to be identified. Witnesses are currently being interviewed and Richard said that it is likely the situation stems from an out of town group of rivals, as it’s possible those involved are not from Berwick. The rapper who was performing is known to have a following from Thibodaux. We will update the story as it develops. You can hear more on Monday’s editions of KQKI Local News at 7:25 am, 8 am, 12 pm & 5 pm.

    .HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL LIMIT CLOUDS AND PROHIBIT COOLING
    SHOWERS. THIS WILL RESULT IN TEMPERATURES CLIMBING INTO THE MID
    90S AGAIN THIS AFTERNOON. MEANWHILE...SOUTH WINDS AT THE SURFACE
    WILL BRING IN GULF MOISTURE AND RELATIVELY HIGH HUMIDITY. THE
    COMBINATION OF TEMPERATURES AND HUMIDITY WILL CREATE HOT AND VERY
    MUGGY CONDITIONS...WITH APPARENT TEMPERATURES OR THE HEAT INDEX
    FROM 105 TO 110 DEGREES. IN THIS ENVIRONMENT...PROLONGED EXPOSURE
    TO THE HEAT COULD RESULT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF HEAT ILLNESS.
