re: Buying a house in proposed St. George - Unobtanium
These are my best guesses based on my understanding of how things work now: Water - BR water company, no difference; Sewage - under parish-wide Dept. of public Works (I think), would not expect any change; Road repair - same parish-wide DPW; Police - they cover inside BR city limits only, St.Geo...

re: Baton Rouge Lakes Restoration Project - Unobtanium
So I guess you're OK with BREC holding on to your money for you until the decide what to spend it on? Getting off topic... Note that this is their 2013 statement, and never in the run-up to the recent (April?) tax renewal did they ever indicate they were already running a surplus. They should pr...

Agreed, but riddle me this - why is BREC sitting on $81 million to begin with? Rainy day fund?...

re: Baton Rouge Lakes Restoration Project - Unobtanium
[quote]From what others here have stated BREC has a huge surplus[/quote] Yes, LSURussian originally looked this up. I'm no accountant, but it would appear that BREC is sitting on about $81 million in cash - see: [link=(http://www.brec.org/assets/2013AnnualReport.pdf)]BREC 2013 Annual Report[/link...

re: Company Wants BR to Annex 630 Acres Near L'Auberge - Unobtanium
to answer your second question, no one comes to mind. He's useless as a councilman, too busy keeping his name in the paper and his face in front of a camera. At work we have a special name for people like that - weaseldick....

re: Time out lounge plans to reopen - Unobtanium
Fair enough. Do the owners know/care that BRPD spends a LOT of time at Benny's Mobil across the street? Look for a lot of drunk stops in the future......

Regardless if Dow owns it or not, that 'peninsula' is past the levee and floods every year. Better spot is up river just south of Addis. It's a wider span but more land available....

re: Business Report article on quality problems with Kleinpeter products - Unobtanium
Thanks for the link - will check out their cow juice. Related, what became of Smith Creamery? I know they had a fire/explosion at their dairy and Kleinpeter's was helping distribute their products. Now, I rarely see their products for sale....

re: BR Costco - Unobtanium
Went last Thursday around 6PM; it was busy but not crowded at all. After two tours through Costco, there is only one item they don't carry that Sam's does. But their wine selection is better, their meats look better and their prepared foods are better. Short version - advantage: Costco. Plus,...

re: Is the Matherne's supermarket on Highland Road having issues? - Unobtanium
Russian, not stalking you, but I frequent this store as well, so I went straight to the store manager to find out what's going on for my own well being. Seems they are indeed going thru a store stock 'reset' to clear out slow moving items and restock with more popular items, many of them per c...

re: Tomorrow, 4/5/14, is tax renewal vote day in EBR parish - Unobtanium
Back to topic, it's amazing to me that a public entity can be sitting on $81 MM and have the gaul to ask for more. As much good as I think BREC does, a message needs to be sent that they need to be better stewards of our money....
