Oh my God!, I've been outed !!!

For God's sake people, my ownership of this blog has never been a secret. Those of you who ACTUALLY know me, know that I do not readily have the time to "sit" on this blog. I have a business, a new daughter, home renovations, community involvement, etc ...

If this blog is so unpopular than why have a vast array of similar blogs e-blossomed? They have actually capitalized on the name through their highly intelligent creativity (same name different blog company, or by the spelling of Antics with an "x"). Why? No original thought process ... "Beam me up Scotty" ... I did not know that Alexandria had so many parrots.

Jacques, good luck my friend, it's a hard battle to fight but fight the good fight ... there are individuals within this community who think for themselves, do what they can for the community and now matter how much unfiltered horse manure is spread, are still able to grow healthy and useful "seedlings" not weeds.

Once upon a time ...

And so most stories begin (or it was a cold, dark night ... but I am trying to look ahead here), Jacques has come out of the gates with a good start. The race however is a 4 year stretch. Will he change the face of Alexandria politics? Will it be better or worse?

Perhaps this blog might be used by the citizens of Alexandria to impart our wants and desires to our new adminstration. If you want investigations, ask for them here. If you want something brought to Alexandria ask here.

Why doesn't everyone on this blog say or do something positive on this thread? We can get back to the slaughterhouse next thread.

The People have spoken!

Jacques Roy is our new Mayor. Unfortunately, he will soon find out that he will be the new whipping boy. Politics - as things change so they remain the same.

Alexandrians voted for change, but how many are willing to help? There are many contracts out there that are held by the "elected familia". Not contracts that were bid on, but actual active contracts. Where will Mr. Roy start? Mr. Roy, dazzle us!

Two days ...

and hopefully everyone will stop selling out their neighbors.

Unfortunately, eveyone has become so agitated with the various campaign fodder, that they have forgotten the most important issue ... ourselves. Yes this blog has turned negative to some candidates. Go back and read through and find the exact point of no return. It is rather an obvious point. Forget fingerprints, the hand is still attached.

Calgonite take me away ...

One Week Left ...

Sorry citizens, I was out of town for the past week. Although I have yet to peruse your vast comments, I have been told that there is an interest into the ownership of this blog. So I have decided to drop a few hints. I am a tall individual of small stature, I am a heavy light weight with light dark hair. I am a Democrat with severe conservative views and a Republican with liberal views. I am plainly who I am ... in short I am you.

....Five and one quarter, Five and one half ...

There have been many times where I have pondered shutting down this blog. Each time I have asked friends about doing so they have asked me not to do so, "it has merit" is the usual response. I have watched, ney ... allowed ... personal friends to be maligned by bloggers on this site. I know the intricities of the truth, while others presume to know. I find it disappointing that untruths are posted here. It is unfortunately the nature of the beast. My grandfather would tell me time and again ... "it is better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you are stupid than open it and prove it". What a wise man my grandfather was ....

... Seven, Six, Five ...

and the saga continues ...

All I ask is that whomever wins puts Alexandria et al, before any possible personal ambitions.

Maritime tradition dictates that the Captain go down with the ship, not desert at the passing of the next sea worthy vessel; or am I too philosophically romantic ...

Ten, Nine, Eight, ...

The count down is on. Delores came out swinging today. I am sure that Jacques will parry. I've already been told that one is in the works from someone close in his camp. And so we wait and see ... break out the raincoats friends, I have a feeling that we will need them.

And then there were two ...

A little behind ... apologies citizens

With time creeping up and a nasty primary behind us, one would presume that things will only get nastier.

Ahh, politics ... left out sentences, presumptions of guilt, need I go on? Such is Louisiana politics. We've taught everyone else this speciality.

The question is which party will bring the biggest gun to this knife fight?

"and so the end is near, and now we face the final curtain ..."

Twenty-four hours left to the first round. Who will be the two? Hopefully the terminally embittered will find solice and stop carrying on as the hopelessly clueless. This blog was started as an exchange of important information and ideas. What we have wound up with is an anonymous way to insult your neighbor. Beam me up Scotty ....

One Week left ...

Who will be our next Mayor? We could hit a historical mark with either the first woman or black mayor. What ever the case, Alexandria is truly at a point of no return. With one of our better hotels closing due to not paying their utilities the fact remains that Alexandria is canibalizing itself. A massive Economic Development plan must be created and implemented. Utility bills must be reduced. Our power is purchased from Cleco and marked up by the city. We have a fund surplus. What to do with it? Uhhh ....

Alexandria is being surpassed by Pineville. Mayor Fields and Rich Dupree as well as the Pineville City Council have done a phenominal job on economic development. As a business owner myself, I recognize the ease and less expense of operating in Pineville. I have had many like minded conversations with other business owners.

Voters, think wise and hard on your decision. Candidates think wise and hard. Whom ever is the next mayor will wear this pivotal mantel for a very long time. This could very well be the mayorial term that makes or breaks Alexandria.

I remain,

Hopeful in Alexandria

This little project has exploded beyond belief. However not all of the content is worthwhile and even belongs on this blog. I was taught that a gentleman never speaks of sex, religion or politics in polite company. However are these not three very interesting topics? They do seem to generate debates with great energy. This being said, we can operate with a a certain amount of decorum, after all we are all "gentlemen" and "ladies".

If it has nothing to do with politics, it has nothing to do with this site. Personal insults are uncalled for and unnecessary. I have become a hall monitor!

Yes, for those who can't focus, this site has been disrupted by several candidates campaigns. Seeds of discontent have been sewn in all campaigns. It is inevitable with blogs.

The old adage "Opinions are like back sides, everyone has one!" is true. Some of them are sensible, some are not. Let's stick to the game folks ... half time is over.

18 Days Left!!

The age of 18 in our society has been deemed the age of majority. Time for frivolity is dimished as we enter the "adult" world. Eighteen days are left until decisions are made for Council seats and Mayor. Please take time to calm yourselves and make a serene and educated decision before entering the voting booth. I have voted for several individuals who personally I did not care for, but none the less did the job for which they ran. They continue to receive my vote.

Your children are leaving, businesses are closing, the employment base leaves much to be desired and you complain on trivialities. These are the questiond that need to be answered: WHO will do what needs to be done? WHO will do so in an EFFECTIVE manner? AND WHO will stand and state "Althought the decision was a bad one, I made it" THIS is the individual you elect.

Good Luck Cenla.

As I have watched the blogging on this site degrade from informative to "re-formative", I will now be monitoring content. If a post uses language that a normal individual would consider foul (you know what I mean) and racialy inciting I will delete it. This people is why nothing gets done in this town. Work together and move in the same direction -- cooperatively. No one has ever been won over by being insulted.

Here's your sign!

Where oh where did I put all of those signs?

Yes it is a felony to interfere with political signs. I have had one or two "displaced" from my yard. People actually came on to private property to do so ... oh the horror. Don't we have more important issues at hand?

I would presume that the candidate that stated "they disappeared as Delores' signs appeared" has proof of this ... a good attorney might take this and turn it into a Slander/Libel suit.

On another note, does anyone have an extra fire hose?

Alexandria, 1864 Revisited

With another round of elections racing towards us, does the present mayorial election coming at the end of September, stand to correct the so deemed "on-going" issues of city hall? Who will you vote for to set things on the right course?

Blog Upgrade!!

To all the faithful,

Within the next few days I will be "tweaking" the blog. There has been problems with the automatic archiving function. Thank you for your patience.

Cenla Antics

Cenla Antics

In reading today's issue of the Town Talk, I was rather taken a back to find that this blog has attracted so much attention. Although I appreciate Mr. White's request of posting authors using their real names, he seems to not understand that it defeats the purpose of the blog. Would Mr. White stand and deliver if he had a problem with his neighbor? (use a scenario that fits here folks). I think not ... it would cause undue harm to relationship that needs to work. Hence the anonymity postings on this blog. Mr. White I applaud your interest and your intent; however, I do not think that it will work in all cases.

Now Mr. White to stir the pot a little. IF the Town Talk and KALB actually did a little investigative reporting this blog would be a moot point now would it not? In they're selective reporting, they have sewn the seed that created Cenla Antics. So Mr. White, in finding the answers to the many questions being asked by the public, would not the "real" media use unidentified sources?

In closing, I am aware that I need to spend some time on archiving old postings. I hope to have this done within the next week or two. I would also like to address a statement made on this blog a few postings back. I have never deleted any postings on this blog. In my opinion to do so would again, take away from the purpose that created this blog.

I remain,
