Thanks for all the info and laughs - brings back memories from the old car bumper jack days.

Figured I'd get better response here rather than OT board.
I'm looking to buy a Hi-lift jack for my farm tractor and trailer. Looks to be well made, portable and more lift range than a hydraulic jack. Amazon reviews are very good, but you guys are a great resource close at hand as well.

I think DPW and driving public stupidity are related but I would like to think (at least in an ideal world) that the great traffic control minds in this department would do the smart thing every now and then.
Thanks to all for the info. :geauxtigers:...

So EBR DPW is removing the barrier they installed in front of the west entrance to this new apartment complex (The District I think).
Anyone know the reason? I thought this was a bad idea from day one (raised barrier in the suicide lane), so I assume some event spurred its removal.
TIA for any...

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...

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?...

[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...

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.

No, but this addition turns this stretch of Perkins into a target rich environment.

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,...
