Being positive instead of negative

Being positive instead of negative

I am writing this letter in response to Janet Rhodus letter to the editor in the Lafourche Gazette on December 7, 2016. Mrs. Rhodus is good at writing negative things about Leeville and Lafourche Parish. She is the most negative person I have every met in my 64 years.

I would like to thank Hobie World Fishing Championship Kayak for hosting the first fishing rodeo at the Lafourche Parish Leeville public boat launch. Also I would like to thank the Lafourche Parish Tourism Commission and Chris Moran for using the pavilion at Port Fourchon, which is located in Lafourche Parish.

It was stated that no live bait was purchased in Leeville, well Hobie sets the rules, not Janet Rhodus. They fish with artificial bait.

There are about 200 to 300 people here for one week staying in Lafourche Parish spending money, checking out our culture, hotels, eating and of course, fishing in the Leeville area.

In closing, I would like to let Janet Rhodus know that when she will become a registered voter of Lafourche we will take some of her advice. If she does not like the way things are being run in Lafourche then she may “falut” (which means, move on).

God Bless all of you.
