Sierra FROM PAGE 5 what's under the hood after ad- miring its brawny body design. The Sierra comes with four different engine choices start- ing with a 4.3L V6 and moves up through the V8s with a 4.8L, 5.3L and finally, a 6.2L for the most serious of the power hun- gry drivers. The SLE package we drove had .the 5.3L. This produces 315 horsepower and the big red ride never felt anything less than robust while navigating country or city roads. All four engines are flex fuel capable, meaning the computer can adapt to up to an 85% ethanol/ gas mixture. This is an important consid- eration when considering au- tos that will last beyond their payment note due to new fuel regulations that will impact everyone who does not drive an actual horse. Variable valve timing, plus a feature that reduces fuel con- sumption by switching off four cylinders when not needed are other interesting and valuable features under the hood. The six speed transmission shifted smoothly and, on our model, had an optional Manual mode and towing mode. Mission accomplished De: troit! .900o Classes Include.

The meeting was called to order at 7:05 p.m. and roll was called. Present: Byers, Dufreche, Rocquin, Palmer, Wheat The board reviewed the financial information. Byers made a motion to accept the check registry and financial report. Palmer seconded the motion. All board members werein favor and the motion passed. Wheat stated the baseball/softball season will start soonl He informed the board that the bridge crossing the canal to allow for barn access Was coming along nicely. Tangipahoa Humane Society Expo will be at the park on Saturday, April 2nd from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There will be pet adoptions. Wheat gave each board member a copy of the LSU Ag Center recommendations for them to read, review and discuss at the next meeting. The board discussed the PARD workers and how they were pleased with the work they have accomplished and how they are working together to accomplish the necessary work. Wheat discussed the wall panels and the temporary shrink wrap system to al- low them to seal the building and begin the interior work. This shrink wrap system met with the architects' standards. April is the estimated completion date of the construction portion of the gymnasium. Wheat reviewed letter from Holly& Smith regarding contingency budget. The football concession needs to have a third coat of paint. The shelves are done and the inside painted. Awning has been ordered to go over the front. The board discussed the need for a gate on the bridge. Dufreche stated he felt a gate was needed on both sides for safety. In addition we need signs on each side to keep people off the bridge. Ernst building work of busting out walls and pulling up doors and securing the building will start on Monday. The front of the building will be replaced with metal building material. It needs a new septic system and permits to get power to it. Backstops have been built for practice areas. Dugouts have been worked on the be ready for the season. Netting has been put up to keep foul balls from falling down. Wheat talked with Garafola today who stated the asphalting will begin within the next two weeks. They will attach an 8 ft. extension for the walking trail. We received word that we can allow this project to begin as long as we keep track por- tion of costs separate. The Corp of Engineers is coming to the conclusion of holding up the FHWA Recreation Grant. They are finalizing and writing a report to send to us. We will have to mitigate land. At some time in the future we will have to probably mitigate land on the additional 6 acres of land purchased last year. Once we receive the report, the mitigation portion can happen quickly. The Canal Bank repairs are tied into grant for walking track. Once funds are released, we can move forward with this project. We have sent a letter to Consolidated Drainage Board requesting assistance. We are in receipt of a formal five year sponsorship contract with First Guaranty Bank. North Oaks has committed to a five year sponsorship with PARD. Byers made a motion to adjourn the meeting. The motion was seconded by Rocquin.
