Support strong for French immersion center
Not that that many Louisiana residents speak French any longer. According to the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana, the language that was spoken fluently by about 1 million Louisianans four decades ago is spoken by only about 150,000 today.

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

I believe our forefathers new what they were doing when they declared that all needed to speak english in 1920.

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.
