thanks for starting your day with us. i'm paulina bucka. and i'm joe sam 3 3 we've been talking mardi gras pretty much all this month... and now it's time for some real action.. so here's what's going on this weekend.. saturday the rio parade will rollout right here in lafayette. the parade is known for its colorful floats, rocking bands and some of the best beads and throws in acadiana! the route starts on evangeline throughway and ends at cajun field. it's expected to kick off at 6-30 p-m some more purple....green....and gold fun happening sunday ---the scott business association will kick off their 21st annual mardi gras parade. roads will be closed starting at 11 that morning and here's a heads out for everyone out there........any vehicles or trailers placed on grassy areas between south frontage road and interstate 10 before 6 a-m sunday, will be towed as well as any vehicles blocking roads or near hydrants. the parade is set to roll on at 1 p-m. also lafayette police want to ensure before we head out to see the floats and attractions-- we keep safety first! barricades started going out yesterday along parade routes in the area.lpd says all of the barricades should be out by this afternoon. this is in preparation for lafayette's first parade of the season -- the krewe of rio. that parade will begin saturday evening. now while some-- may feel the barricades hold them back from the fun and action--l-p-d says its better safe than sorry. 3 today will mark the fifth day that lawmakers will be stuck in the capital city for the current special session in order to close a 304 million dollar budget deficit so far there have been a series of proposals and counter proposals to balance the budget, but the fight from the beginning has been whether or not to pull from the rainy day fund. so far, it seems like the two opposing sides could possibly meet half way and make a decision. u-l polical science professor dr. pearson cross says it's going to be a compromise bill. <"cameron henry's willingness to use 75 million of the rainy day fund indicates that he is willing to give that much, he's not holding the hard line."> what this means is that....it's going to come down to a matter of negotiation regardless of what is discussed....lawmakers must come to a final decision on how to fix the budget hole by next wednesday when the special session ends 3 ul students will finally get a chance to see the latest edition of the university's magazine la louisiane after waiting for it to be released for over a year this issue covers both the fall 2016 and winter 2017 semesters---when typically the magazine just covers one at a time.with all the controversy over it's publishing date was highlighted back in november......ul lafayette has removed any publishing promises from its magazine--la louisiane---and its website. now let's check in with grace for a quick look at weather--- 3 3 3 parents in one new jersey community are worried their children may have been exposed to lead in school drinking water.officials say tests show lead at higher-than-acceptable levels in two elementary schools.the state of new jersey called for tests in all public schools.now... tests in hunterdon county have turned up trouble.cali desimone reports, at lambertville public school.. 4 out of 17 samples exceeded the e-p-a action level of 15 parts per billion of lead.the same was true of 2 of 14 samples taken at west the lambertville school uses public water. west amwell elementary uses well water.lou muenker/ south hunterdon school district: "last spring in may we did test the public water at that time everything proved to be ok."but more recent tests showed the higher readings. one so-called "first draw" sample at the lambertville school had a lead reading of 320 parts per billion, or about 21 times the federal action level. lou muenker/ south hunterdon school district:"i think the difference that we are noticing is the testing methods were a little different."."high levels of lead in the water can prove extremely dangerous... especially to young children. lead is a neurotoxin... and even small amounts have been proven to lead to learning disabilities and other problems.lou muenker/ south hunterdon school district:"at west amwell we had a water fountain in one of our classrooms that tested to be above levels and also in the nurses office we have a sink with a faucet that also tested to be above levels." superintendent lou muenker says there was also a water fountain by the gym and a sink in a kitchen that tested above normal for lead.lou muenker/ south hunterdon school district:"our first action to remediate that was just to turn them off. so the sink in the nurses office is used to hand washing only and we provided water bottles and things for the kids to drink." an official with the new jersey sierra club told n.j.com that the lead findings have "sent a chill through the community" and that parents are "very concerned." yesterday thousands of immigrants and supporters around the country took part in a national day without immigrants.many restaurants and businesses worked with short staff or even closed as part of the nationwide protest. protesters marched in response to president donald trump's immigration crackdown and travel ban......and are aimed at showing america the importance of immigrants and the contributions they make on a daily basis. 3 imagine----thousands of fans screaming.....the entire world watching......and a moment most spend their lifetime waiting for.what started out as a simple dream for one acadiana musician turned into a whirlwind of fame and exposure. lane mack is one artist--- leaving the energetic stages of acadiana to brace the judgement stage nationally. nats <in the back
