Editor: Your story on the "business incubator" in Norco that will help ordinary people produce and market homemade recipes like hot sauce and pecan pralines was an eye opener. I haven't lived in St. Charles Parish for long, but that incubator is very progressive.

Editor: It's great to hear that your sports columnist, Mike Detiller, has won an award as "Best Unknown Voice in Radio" from Sports Illustrated. Congratulations, Mike! Keep up the good work. I've been reading this Kristian Garic on your sports pages, too. He's a wild man - but I like his hell-raisin' approach. He's high energy.

Editor: I read the story you wrote for your Lifestyles section - Get out of Debt with Tips from Real People Just Like You - and, boy, did it open MY eyes. As you suggested, I'm starting a "Skinflint's Club" with some of my friends and we're going to meet each week to figure out ways to cut our debts and start saving money.

Be sure to let us know when your book on "simple, debt-free living" comes out, the one you talked about in the article. I'll be the first in line to get an autographed copy.
