His surname is spelled Kuebler. We regret the error and draw your attention to the follow-up report in this week's edition, with Brian's name spelled correctly part of this year's Antique Festival. It was these two to three foot alligators who wore the colors of members of the media, politicians, and service groups in the races. with John Scott of WFPR's gator winning overall. It too was a Klie- bert Alligator and Turtle Farm alli- gator, as was the second place finisher in the "suitcase size" divi- sion of larger gators. Last week's report credited Klie- bert Alligator and Turtle Farm only with lhe second place win in the large alligator category and failed to give the Kliebert family credit for its unique contribution to this major state-recognized festival in Ponchatoula. Adams FROM PAGE TWELVE He wrote Abigail in a rage: "I am going to marry Louisa Johnson;" mama: "your career comes first." Louisa took him in the family carriage to Bond Street where he was outfitted with a new wardrobe. New England folks never underestimated the power of the Adams women. President Washington transferred Quincy to Lisbon, Portugal and after renting and house and moving all his furniture there his father, the new president, cancelled the appointment and ordered him to Berlin. He quickly saw the fine Italian hand of Abigail in all these transactions. The old bugbear since the protestant revolt upset the wedding picture. Louisa and her sisters in French convent schools converted to Catholicism in England. The Adams were anti- Anglicans and stout congregationalists. And to top it off Quincy's daddy was elected president of the United States. Louisa had a mind of her own. As they said in those days, "she was a very determined woman" the two of them went to the parish church "All Hallows Barking" on Tower Hill and set the wedding date for July 17, 1797. His brother Thomas was his best man. On board ship sailing for Europe Louisa received a letter from her father: "Best wishes, I am bankrupt. Forget the five thousand pounds sterling dowery. Happy honeymoon." | i Ole Hardhide FROM PAGE ONE reported she looked down to see the Manchac marvel was still in his white fisherman's boots. (You can take Teddy out of the swamps...) Hey Debbie Robertson, owner of the new Debbie's Cuts n Curls across from City Hall, as a grand opening present I could give you a large photo of Ole Hardhide to hang on your beauty shop wall. It would sort of give your clients something to shoot for (I'II trade you for a pedicure). And then there was Mace. l've been saving Mace for late in My Ponchatoula, as a bonus to those faithful readers who have waded through this swamp of information in hopes of finding something worth reading. Where shall we begin? We could pick up the story two weeks ago when the Madisonville Police Chief decided to become Mace's personal manager, and since he figured ole Mace had broken training and downed a jar or two of the suds, he kindly relieved him of his car keys and helped whip him into shape by inviting him to walk home from Madisonville to the Tangipahoa River. Ah, but that's an old story and is only surpassed by the events of this past weekend when the public-minded citizen was helping the police jury clear out a ditch using the wheels.on the left side of his car and got mired in the muck for all of his thoughtful assistance. Mind you, this was after-hours volunteer service and Mace was already tired when he started, so of course he took a little nap behind his car after several weary attempts at pushing it back on the pavement, wouldn't you? Boy did that cop misdiagnose our buddy's condition. Silly fellow, he thought ole Mace was exhausted due to acute thirst so he of course performed first aid in the form of three buckets of cold water on our hero, who did seem to respond to the treatment on the third bucket. Did ! say he was a swell guy? He even put Mace up for the night. That's My Ponchatoula for you! I II IIII ii HEATING & COOLING High cooling cost eating up your pocketbook?
