re: Lake Charles saving the state's GDP level - CharleyLake
Is the Lake Chales Methanol Project also called Leucadia? I thought that one was abandoned due to the lack of sufficient government funding. Citidel recently announced a 17.6 M expansion for Chennault Airport for the purpose of jet maintenance. ...

re: A businessman is planning to turn Lake Charles's nicest house into a restaurant. - CharleyLake
If you are referencing "that money" as the money owned by the restaurant owner and his investor, OK. Mr. Richard is an LSU Law School graduate and went to public schools. You better believe that the restaurant opposition had large concentrations of wealth over fifty years ago. The Pioneer Club w...

re: A businessman is planning to turn Lake Charles's nicest house into a restaurant. - CharleyLake
Was it not KPLC that listed Oliver "Rick" Richard as the owner of the house and said that he was unavailable for comment? Mr. Richard has backed downtown development for many years. I don't think that he is of old Lake Charles money. He installed a drinking fountain across the street several yea...

re: Legal-Bayou Bridge Pipeline decision - CharleyLake
Typically they are different, I suspect. The Texas law suits seemingly are another approach to challange the notion that the exportation of crude oil is a public and paramount beneficiary or an avenue to line the pockets of the shareholders of the pipeline company. ...

re: Legal-Bayou Bridge Pipeline decision - CharleyLake
My appreciation of these law suits is that the pipeline companies cannot claim "public use/benefit" if the product transproted is not used domestically therefore expropriation is not valid. I am not an attorney. You might call them friolous but they are happening. ...

I would like to engage a Baton Rouge area land man to complile a collection of surveys for a certain property section in Calcasieu Parish. An attorney told me that the archives are in Baton Rouge and it will be less expensive that purchasing an abstract. The collection would be subject to a titl...

re: Legal-Bayou Bridge Pipeline decision - CharleyLake
My guess is that you will be correct regarding the injunction. My interest is more focused on landowner's rights. There will be several law suits in Texas against the argument that private-for-profit pipeline cpmpanies are not benefitting local economies by exporting crude oil. It might be a goo...

re: Learning The Different Bets In Craps - CharleyLake
I no longer fight a hot shooter. The "Gambler's Falacy." Three passes and I enjoy that drink or follow the money. It it however dissappointing to have a single shooter beat you both ways but it happens. Often you can play the ABS or Iron Cross and recover. (Play two or three units on the 5,6,and 8 ...
