Sucks, but they are right they have a lot of pending issues including a couple of legal matters that the money will likely have to go to.

Glad to see that Mr. Lambert was reelected as president and congrats to Mrs. Howle for getting vice president. She represents my district and I have been very pleased by her representation so far.

Interesting Dude that you are glad to see Lambert as President and Howle as vice president when both of these wanted to give this money 3/4 $$MILLION over to a voluntary rec board. The original plan by Percy, Howle, and Lambert involved sinking another $Million into a baseball quad which was the plan last month. Of also interest is the fact that Howle and Percy didn't even want the hospital to have to pay for the land they were taking.
Kean tried to get the Hospital Board pay for the concession stand, bathrooms and fields. He was treated like some kind of mongrul for suggesting this.
Replacement of practice fields does not compute with spending over a million of tax payers money to build another quad.
It is wise to gather information, look over what we can afford and then make informed decisions.
Those lights that the new parks manager says can't be used is foolish. I hear the rodeo boys are willing to take them and get volunteers to put them up. Thats the real way this parish used to run.

It's mongrel...not "mongrul" by the way.

Like I said, I think they got it right last night, though I would love to see more improvements made to the sports park (a couple of official soccer pitches would be great)however now is not the time to spend money on it.

I also thought that 700,000 + was plenty of money for that land, with or without the improvements.

It is okay to think someone is doing a good job and disagree with them on a giving topic. Lambert has conducted himself extremely well as president and I am glad that the jury unanimously voted for him to continue. That doesnít mean that I agree with everything he votes for, and I would think it odd if anyone did agree with another on every topic that affects our parish. Same goes for Mrs. Howle, I agree with more often than I donít and from what Iíve seen see has been willing to compromise and work towards a solution where others seem to dig in and hold things up.

I also like Kean a lot by the way, his business sense and knowledge adds a lot to the board though I tend to disagree with him more times than agree.


We have a pretty good group right now; they all bring their own perspective to the board and seem to come to reason in most cases.
