St. Tammany Squabble – Core vs. Fitzmorris
Monday, 09 April 2012 11:39 Written by

 

chehardyLast November longtime St. Tammany Assessor Patricia Core narrowly lost her bid for re-election to Abita Springs Mayor Louis Fitzmorris.  Rather than having a smooth transition from one administration to another, the media is reporting the transition isn’t going very well with each side blaming the other for a lack of cooperation.

 

The real problem between Core and Fitzmorris is the extended lame duck period.  The general election was held on November 19, 2011, and the date upon which the newly elected Assessor takes office is January 1, 2013. 

 

Why such a long time?  You may recall that prior to the early 1970’s Louisiana elections were held under a closed primary system.  Separate Democrat and Republican Party elections with run-offs were held followed by a General Election where those winners, a Democrat and a Republican, along with Independent candidates faced off against each other.  The candidate with the most votes was elected.

The sissifying of the NFL, the debate over Gregg Williams Saints audio
Saturday, 07 April 2012 11:25 Written by

gregg-williamsThe entire New Orleans Saints bountygate debate continues as many Saints fans are grieving, in shock and trying to claim the NFL should proceed against the rest of the teams and not just pick on New Orleans.  One of the other major themes in the discussion is whether the NFL is sissifying the game of football.

Then, there is another debate--whether the filmmaker who released the audio of Gregg Williams was appropriate and even legal?  Steve Gleason, a former Saint, who is close to the Saints and who suffers from ALS said Sean Pamphilon did not have authority to do so.

Not only are there questions as to the timing of graphic Sean Pamphilon video tape presenting the audio of former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams instructing his players how to hurt opposing 49ers body parts.  Now, there is an issue as to whether it should have been released at all.
