|On your marks, get set, climb!
March 29, 2006 at 1:18 pm
When most people hear the words "St. Charles Parish," usually their first thought is that of the Hale Boggs Bridge. It's towers rise over 400 feet tall into the sky with its 5,280 miles of cable used to suspend the roadway well above the Mississippi River traffic below. It truly is a parish symbol. It has done more to pull this parish together than any other effort or object before it.
|It’s all about balance
March 22, 2006 at 3:07 pm
We all mark certain events in our lives with anniversaries by which, throughout time, our kind have kept their sorrows and their joys, their victories, their revelations and their obligations alive, for re-celebration and re-dedication of another year.
|Our Good Fortune May Cost Us

It is hard to believe that nearly five years have passed since terrorists hijacked four airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington, DC, and an open field in Pennsylvania.

|Trash on highways unsightly, dangerous
March 01, 2006 at 12:00 pm
I bet in a post Katrina world, there isn’t a single driver in southeast Louisiana who doesn’t have at least one story about debris falling from a trash truck either striking their vehicle, caused them to take dangerously evasive actions, or striking something on the roadway. With tons and tons of Hurricane Katrina trash being hauled to landfills, most all of which are located on the west bank just over the Jefferson and St. Charles Parish lines, it seems as though all roads to the landfills lead through St. Charles Parish, even from parishes far to our east. All of this has local residents experiencing a much larger percentage of driving challenges than any other community.
|The greatest free show in the World

It has been billed as the greatest free show on earth and few would question the great times experienced by participating in Mardi Gras. but, is it really free and what do we have to gain from it?
|Making good communities great
February 15, 2006 at 1:20 pm
During a victory celebration on February 23 at Destrehan Plantation, the United Way of St. Charles will announce the results of the 2006 campaign that will fund the many agencies that contribute so much to our quality of life. After a year of tremendous demands on the non-profit service providers, the success of this year’s pledges will have great impact on a post-Katrina St. Charles Parish.
|133 years of taking notes
February 09, 2006 at 12:11 pm
Much has happened in St. Charles Parish in the more than thirteen decades. We have gone from a sparsely populated agricultural community to being one of the largest ports in the world. And during that time, one business has witnessed this evolution first hand.
|Apology Accepted... Lets Move On
February 01, 2006 at 1:31 pm
In a post-Katrina world, there are two things that should be obvious by now: One, you can't ask for billions in recovery aide from the federal government without expecting to be under a public microscope, and, two, you can't fake leadership in such a demanding environment as the pressure will surely expose your weaknesses.
