re: Sasol North America's (Lake Charles) 319' Tower being moved down the road - CharleyLake
Good question. Last month the spokesman for the Axiall expansion was commenting about the modules ariving to the site by barge. He stated that this method of transportation kept the equipment off the highways in Calcasieu Parish. Too bad that the modules are make in Korea as opposed to the USA....

re: Hammond area food recs - CharleyLake
I understand why it is. Clean, great service; we had burgers, fries, rings, a shake and a malt for a great pre-game meal. Plan on returning Saturday. Thanks so much. CL ...

re: Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
I must in part concur. The initial question's responses went on a tangent. I am pleased that the answers to the initial post disagreed with the propaganda that the pipeline company placed in the local newspapers in which many of the local polititians in SW LA quickly jumped on the bandwagon. ...

re: Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
I am lost on the term "natural gas grid." I am not a businessman. To rephrase your question-would you agree that INDIVIDUALS be allowed to the same access to a natural gas pipleline directly, say for home or business heating as corporations or partnerships have? If so, I would say that it would qual...

re: Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
Likely not too much but I do not know. I think that both are viewed legally as a "common carrier." That is to say that all of us can somehow benefit. For example, we can buy a street car ticket and get a ride to the zoo from St. Charles Avenue is how I think of its intended definition. The diff...

re: Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
Sneaky, thank you for sharing your comments and listening to mine. I suspect that you are an employee or stockholder of a pipeline company, attorney, or land agent. I am neither. I fail to understand how a private for profit company can use the power of eminent domain to strong arm people. You agree...

re: Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
Do you support the idea that a private for profit company should be allowed to take a landowner's property? Do you think that it is fair to the land owner to allow his property to be interrupted and taken for a permanent servitude, that is for a one-time payment the pipeline company would profit for...

re: Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
Sure, two people have responded declaring that an abundance of peremanent jobs would not be created. If the economic value suports building a pipline, would jobs not be lost from marine business such as barge transportion, tankers and perhaps trucking and rail cars. ...

re: Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
I seem to recall recently reading about deaths from pipeline fires/explosions in St.Charles and St.James Parishes. I imagine that is poor timing for advocates of how safe pipeline transportation is. Pipeline may be safer vehicle of transportation than trucks, I have no idea, but trucks will alwa...

re: Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
Sneaky, I am not an environmenalist but it begs the questions if an additional pipeline would require additonal roads,levees, and canals to be constucted across wetlands and our state's natural resources to inspect the integrity of this steel, repair leaks, and perform other maintenance? Would wildl...

re: Online beer purchases - CharleyLake
I have also used France 44 and some sites from the West Coast which are dependable. The problem is being available for the required signature when the shipment arrives. Our neighbor orders wine and we try to help each other but often we are both unavailable when delivered. ...

Bayou Bridge Pipeline - CharleyLake
Will the proposed Bayou Bridge Pipeline project be real boon to the economy or will it create mostly tenporary jobs and become another "we build it and leave" project by creating few permanent jobs? ...

re: The Wall/Eminent Domain - CharleyLake
Certainly a viable solution for anyone with possessions. There are many areas of private-owned land that are barren along the border that do not have even a tar paper shack. Take a look at the protesters. There will be more than a few morons for sure....

re: The Wall/Eminent Domain - CharleyLake
I was not aware of the gubment easement. Thanks. Don't you think that there will be ingress and egress problems and problems with the necessity of large areas of "temporary" work spaces with private owners? I suspect that the remaining 1% landowners could conceptualy legally tie this up for many yea...

The Wall/Eminent Domain - CharleyLake
Let us assume that President Trump goes forward with his plans for a wall on the southern boundary of the United States. Let us also assume that much of the land is owned by private landowners. If the governments needs to acquire much of this land by its power of emindent domain by expropriation...

re: Golden eye.. mount it? - CharleyLake
I would take it to the taxidermist. I shot one north of the Cameron Parish Court House about 25 years ago. The blind got two hens of five or six that decoyed. I have never seen a Goldeneye since then. Back then I did hobby taxidermy work and had a species collection but I only kept the "Copperhea...

re: Anchoring duck decoys - CharleyLake
Putting out three of them stategically each hunt is time-consuming enough but this guy does have the lease and calls the shots. The third hunter and I bought him some Flocka Flickers for Christmas so I am sure that they will go out tomorrow. All of us are old and blessed that we can still hunt a...

re: Anchoring duck decoys - CharleyLake
Each decoy was jammed in the mud with a notched broomstick. We sure thought the weight was sufficient. Evidently not. The owner of the decoys wants to secure them to a "common line" but I think that they would tangle or bunch. Appreciate the ideas. ...
