re: Gambit article: "Is NOLA Worth It?" - elleshoo9 on 8/22/17 at 9:35 pm
[quote]What negative aspects? The culture? The food? The architecture? The food? The history? The food? I've never been robbed or assaulted in New Orleans. And I've never known someone who has either. Get your head out of your arse and stay in BR, jealous little brother.[/quote] What are ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]I heard something on WWI heard something on WWL that only 60% of the properties in Orleans Parish pay property taxes. I understand that churches are tax exempted but that is a law that needs to change. There is a fricking church on every corner. I think I also heard that Loyola and Tulane don...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Gambit article: "Is NOLA Worth It?" - elleshoo9 on 8/22/17 at 9:18 pm
Is there any hope for the negative aspects of the culture of New Orleans and Louisiana as a whole to change for the better? How do you get people into office that can withstand the temptation of corruption? I would think it has to be people who genuinely care for the state/city and have already had ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Engineering has a decent job market in the GNO with the several chemical plants and refineries just outside of the city limits plus consulting firms servicing these plants and the upstream oil and gas sector. Nothing like the Houston market, but there's opportunities ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

It's rediculous. A $1B per year budget should be able to easily sustain the parish, even with the infrastructure issues. I'd like to look into the per capita budget of Nola vs other cities in the south...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Gambit article: "Is NOLA Worth It?" - elleshoo9 on 8/22/17 at 4:32 pm
I had looked at Jefferson parish budget vs Orleans. $600M vs $1.04B for 2017. Where does that much money go every year? If I could make one change, it would be that all city spending over a certain (say $100k) amount gets published to the public in a very transparent way. The public doesn't get t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Why did those industries start to leave or shrink? I know banking used to be so much bigger here, it's what my great great grandfather did in the mid to late 1800s when Nola was prospering. I get that New Orleans property will always be more expensive than Texas property bc New Orleans is limit...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

This thread got totally hijacked... But as someone born uptown and have lived in Nola for my entire 28 years, outside of my stint at LSU, I find myself scratching my head and looking at opportunities outside the state. The biggest thing holding me back here is family/roots. A lot of my college fr...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Trout on Lake Borgne - elleshoo9 on 7/23/17 at 2:28 pm
Where around lake borgne has been producing? We had a very slow morning before running in from storms around noon. We tried the rocks along the east shore then a couple rigs then around bayou magill. A red, trout and sheepshead is all we got. We must be doing something wrong, any advice would be...
