We need this going but we have so many people that are jealous because one person may get praised for doing something good for this town . What's going on with this little town I grew up in we have nothing now. Having the French language to continue here is a blessing and I wish more people would realize it. I approve what George Marks and Mavis Fruge are doing keep up the good work . They would like to use the old hospital for the students to learn French and we have people from all over the country whating to come here but we have that would rather have a half way house there instead oh and they would have to put up a large fence to keep the drug heads in . That's the kind of crap we have running the town

The concept is. Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to hold on to ones heritage and even learn other languages. But not at tax payer expense.
