Anniversaries and Birthdays Pass Manchac (Photo Courtesy of James Kendrick) Litter pickup on Manchac Greenway this Saturday Special to The Times The litter pick-up on the Manchac Greenway planned Saturday, is a cooperative endeavor with the Tangipa- hoa Parish, government administration and Parish Coun- cil,lending equipment, manpower and administrative as- sistance, the Save Manchac Coalition, also assisting with administration, the Manchac Boating Association, which came up with this ongoing program in the first place, the Friends of the Manchac Greenway, The Lake Ponchatrain Basin Foundation, Entergy and others. Equipment and sup- plies have been rounded up, mile-long zones on the Greenway have been deter- mined and "hot spots" iden- tiffed so labor can be uti- lized efficiently. The North Pass Boat launch will be the headquarters for the morning event. A unique aspect of this effort managed by the Manchac Boating Associa- tion with the assistance of the parish will be a trash pick-up from banks and waterways adjacent to the Greenway and from area camps. This ongoing program asks camp owners to place unwanted appliances and other refuse on their docks for collection.

FROM PAGE ONE generation could be expected to advise. I think of that great Irishman Stan Cowen every time anybody turns on American Pickers on the His- tory Channel, because the super successful owner of the Ponchatoula Auction Company would have ex- celled on that show. There was nothing Stan did not know about antiques. His buddy Marion Fannaly would do for cars and trucks what Stanley Cowen could have done with every era of antique furniture and lighting. Marion was to drag strips what Stanley was to antique auc- tions. They were both accomplished entrepreneurs in their fields, and both hung out.with the cr me of the crop. Country idols and concert masters were every- where in the Cowen manse, while the scion of Bird- seye Frozen Foods gravitated to the Fannaly Man- sion, helping to revolutionize the aftermarket of the Ponchatoula strawberry crop. Pay attention when Historian Jim Perrin writes his histories for this newspaper. It is our heritage he is giving to us as a present we should treasure always.
