Louisiana By BRYAN T. McMAHON Ponchatoula not only hosted the state champion- ship barbecue cooking competition, but also became the state's largest contest when 55 cookers competed at Memorial Park on Saturday. "All the cooks I talked to praised Ponchatoula and praised the Memorial Park site," said Party in the Pits Co-Chair Tom Pittman on Monday. Vet- eran cook, co-chair, and founder of the event is Elvis Stanga. Roadtoad's Smoke-n-BBQ's Danny Titus was particularly thrilled because it was a first grand championship. Pittman highly praised the work done by Bridget Anderson of Alexis Ducorbier State Farm Insurance for all her work, and he singled out for praise the Ponchatoula High School In- teract Club whose members he said were "extremely helpful." The event was a grand suc- cess in its first year in Memo- rial Park. Previous Party in the Pits competitions were held downtown in America's Antique City but outgrew that venue.

'Oh yeah?' said Charlie, 'And how did this one end?' 'When it was over,' Boudreaux replied, 'She came to me on her hands and knees.' 'Really,' said Charles, 'Now that's a switch! What did she say?' She said, 'Come out from under the bed, you little coward.' Brendan and Landis' wee ones were loving the Wooden Boat Festival on Sunday at Friends, at least until one of the big boats let loose with a steam whistle, which was soon drowned out by the terrified cries of Felicity, 2, and her kid brother Patrick Terrence. 7 months, who had never heard such a com- motion in Ponchatoula. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them... You have been following the adventures of Fr. Placid, the Benedictine monk in war-torn LatinAmerica that is written by Ole Pinchpenny's jet jockey buddy Erin Pierce and published exclusively in The Ponchatoula Times, yes? Well, what if I told you the stories are true? So who is this mysterious monk, Fr. Placid? Ole Pinchpenny's got duct tape wrapped around my jaws because he pledged us all to secret silence, but journey to Dallas and speak to former Benedictine seminarian Kurt Nierenberger, late of Our Ponchatoula, and he might show you the way. But me, I'm speechless on a promise. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything. Congratulations to Elvis Stanga and fellow BBQ cook Tom
