So new car dealerships in Ponchatoula are expecfed to pop Out of the ground overnight like mushrooms. (Paul, get me a Plymouth. Two lumps, hold the cream.) What else did the festival do? Judging by the exodus Friday, I'd say it rang the bells off the cash registers of the hotels and motels on Florida's beach. But plenty also stayed around and braved another one, refusing to be overcome by the state's largest festival. They too had fun. Never have so many worked so hard to have fun. And the money! This gator saw Ponchatoula merchants with beaming faces! Ole Zach down at the card shop, etc., got to where he was running out of things to sell at one point when he noticed all the shells outside his store, l hear they got him before he couJd fetch a shovel and a sign. (The Highway Department wouldn't have understood Ole Buddy). Speaking of which, ask Buddy Rottman who he calls "Little Dennis" - and why. Anyway, one last kiss goodbye to the festival and the pluckiest queen anyonecould ever want and the most enthusiastic chairman in all My Ponchatoula. and the finest festival board in this gator's memory. RESPONSIBILITIE, S: EVERYONE HAS THEM Members of the Louisiana shell industry are meeting thezrs. \\; /; / When nature is your supplier, ou have a heaw responsibility, A responsibility to m,ike the fullest use of resources. .,X responsibiliD' to share access to the environment with other iterests. both recreational and commercial. And a responsibility to cooperate with governnlent,tl agencies whose job is to guarantee that public lands are used in the best interest of us all These are the ways the Louisiana shell dredging industq operates. A responsibility to protect For almost three quarters of a century, the Louisiana shell industry has been providing one of the world's most useful natural resources. Shells' applications are practically unlim- ited, from road and general construc- tion to glass manufacturing and poultry feed production. Scientific studies have shown that the jndustry's methods of recovering shells are among the safest and most efficient of any natural resource re- covem. program, having only minor and short-term effects Shell dredging releases no harmful cont;mlitmts into the water. 111 fact, m:u tudies report that some of the side efffcb of shell dredging activities actualk   a : t  L be beneficial by making nutrients more easik available to re,trifle life. q'he shell industry will continue tb devebp even better ways of providing shells for b)uisiana commerce. A responsibility to share The I,ouisiana shell industu is only one of many users of the state's extensive system of saltwater lakes and bays. In lakes Maurepas and Pontchar- train and along the states central Gulf coast, we have shared the envi- ronment with outdoorsmen; com- mercial fishermen, crabbers and oys- ter growers; oil and gas producers; and commercial maritime interests We've been good neighbors, and we intend to continue working side- by-side with others who rely, on b)uisiana waters for their recreation and their livelihood. A responsibility, to cooperate l)u is one of the most regulated industries in the state. More than a dozen governmental agencies have an interest in or exercise some type of control over our operations. Among them are: S L'.S. Army (a)l'p. of Engineers Environmental Protection Agency Louisiana Department of Natural Resources Louisiana Department of Wildlife anl Fisheries U.S. Coast Guard The list goes on. And so does our cooperation. Those regulator3,' agen- cies called upon to protect the inter- ests of all l,ouisiana citizens deserve no less. We in the shell dredging industry are aware of our responsibilities, aM we're meeting them. Louisiana shells.., a base to build on.
