December 20, 2013 at 9:20 am
I read the recent Herald-Guide article “Attorney General closes the lid on Parish’s free dumpster program” to which I feel I have the obligation to reply and to clarify for the citizens some of what was reported.

August 09, 2013 at 11:01 am

All items for personal use should be sales tax free with the exceptions of licensed vehicles, food prepared at a restaurant and some services and rentals.

|Vote for hospital bond will cause further debt
April 05, 2012 at 9:00 am
Once again, in less than a year, the Administrator and operators of our St. Charles Parish Hospital are asking the good folks of St. Charles Parish to give them more money to expand the hospital. Nothing has changed, except for their plan on how they will access your taxes.
