  • Insurance proposal needs explaining

    This letter is to clarify the insurance proposal for employees that has been a primary topic of discussion before the Lafourche Parish Council.The proposal I submitted, and which was rejected by the Council, retains all the same benefits as the current policy.

Also that even though it will mean I have double coverage I am responsible to pay for both insurance (they could have cancelled on Se...

    There are too many gators! They are killing all animals in the habitat.Also, gator farms must release 17 percent of their new gators when they are three feet long. That regulation should be eliminated.

    Recently my two grandchildren were fortunate to participate in a very worthy program through Les Reflections du Bayou.

What a beautiful program!A very big thanks to all the wonderful workers (volunteers) of Mrs.
