I think we will better handle this storm than Katrina..We are a bit more prepared for it and time has not erased the memories of the past. We are able to take care of some of the people who come up from the south. God bless them and those that perhaps are having to stay near the gulf and experience the full force of the storm.
One thing is bothering me. These people are our guest. We offer them shelter from the storm. They should treat their shelter as someone’s home they are a guest in.. I hope that the enforcement at the shelters can point out that they should clean up their mess before they leave. Its only fair…One of the biggest problems is after the storm, most of them leave a pig pen for us to clean up…That’s just a fact of life…I notice that in the TT they were complaining about the condition of the collesium, yet they will destroy the place before they leave…Thats a fact not a comment…I HOPE THAT THE POLICING OF THE PLACE UNDERSCORES THE FACT THAT THEY SHOULD KEEP THEIR AREA CLEAN AND USE TRASH BINS, ETC. BUT i AM NOT KIDDING MY SELF.. IT WILL BE A SHAMBLES AFTER THIS IS OVER…
Lets hope the Parish commission puts in for Federal aid this time to fix up the place! ……………..But I think the real aim of the commission is to replace it and sell the existing land at a profit. But in the end costing the taxpayers MUCH more in building a new one further out of town. (Not a good gamble.)
