French Qua~ ~id~ Sunday April 7 announces Dear friends: I am very pleased to announce that I will be seek- ing the Tangipahoa Parish Council District 9 seat in the Fall. This was an easy deci- sion to make as now, more than ever before, I am con- vinced that the residents of District 9 need effective and energetic represen- tation at the parish level and beyond. South Tangi is evolving, and resident voices need to shape that evolution. Change is upon us. I have lived east of Pon- chatoula for 43 years and, as you all know, the popu- lation growth in our area is staggering. Infrastructure, fire departments, and our school system will soon be overwhelmed if we do not plan wisely. These issues should be paramount to all residents, both old and new, of District 9. We're in this together now after all. The waters will rise again. Drainage in South Tangi will remain a con- cern. The geography of our beautiful district all but assures this. Now more so than in the past, however, uncertainty looms. Where will the rising waters go next? Again, we must be proactive in our planning and public works. Economic growth has been sorely lacking in our district for some time. With the increase in citi- zenry should come an in- crease in the opportunity to change this trend. Busi- nesses and industry offer- ing above minimum wage jobs and increased sales tax revenue need to be en- ticed to become part of our growing community while at the same time adapting to our way of life. There are many other challenges facing District 9. In fact, the list grows weekly. We can, however, through open communica- Glenn Dale Bridges District 9 candidate tion and responsive rep- resentation, make parish government work for us. Achieving these lofty goals is why T will be campaign- ing full throttle for the job of parish councilman. It is time.

All the students seemed very excited about this new club and enjoy the new friendships they have made and hope to continue these friend- ships after graduation. The Times was told Bud- dy Club has helped build meaningful friendships between students, giving students a sense of being valued by the community and has helped develop communication skills. After asking numerous students, what is your fa- vorite reason for being in- volved in The Best Buddies Club? The response from all was friendship, being able to see their buddy in the hallway, lunchtime FROM PAGE ONE with their buddies, and of course off-campus field trips are their favorite ac- tivities.
