When is our Sorry ass Police Jury going to do something about Patrick Road and the other roads in Point Place? These roads are in such bad shape. They can spend money in Plantation Point and that road was not nearly as bad as Patrick road. Come on Police Jury Members have you ever heard of accountability?

I'm pretty sure the residents of Plantation Point paid for their own material and the Police Jury just hauled it for them. Have the residents of Point Place offered to pay for their own materials?

In the know, matter of fact Plantation point did not pay for their own road paving. Patrick Road has been patched up for the longest time and it is time to get it right. Police Jury, Patsy is in the hot seat now, they were out looking at the road 2 weeks ago and she stated that it is going to get fixed, well I say do not hold your breath because it just isnt going to happen. Patrick Road is shot!!!!!

Well after all this time our sorry ass police jury has still done nothing to Patrick rd. guess its going to take someone hitting one of the big ass pot holes, losing control of car and winding up in someone's living room then maybe they will sue the hell out of NPPJ and then maybe they will fix the road! wow I see that point place now has a neighborhood watch so who is watching? Drug dealers, burglars, crazy man? That's probably the watch group just watching you leave so they can rob you blind I remember when this was a good neighborhood till the slum lords and the housing authority partner'd up! Just a short list of PP problems: low property value, drug dealers, thugs, bad roads, dead beats & thieves! Clean these out, fix roads and maybe this could be a good neighborhood again.

Point place is like the HOOD now. It use to be a nice place and could have been a upscale neighborhood but shotty houses started being built in there and mobile homes that were falling apart moved in. It is tragic what happen there. 90% of the places need to be bull dozed down. I wish all these people there, 4- 7th st, Lee St, in Town South, the square, Texas Street and streets off Texas Street, Pan Am and all of those crappy neighborhoods would all get together and move to one area of town. We need to clean house..........putall low income, housing projects, etc. on the North side of town. Now they are scattered everywhere and screw up all neighborhoods.

You people complaining need to go outside the parish and see how bad their roads are. I'm not talking about those in the Haynesville shale. I'm talking about poor ass parishes like grant, vernon, sabine, evangeline, st landry.
Roads can't be repaired if we have no money to repair them. Vote for Barry Obama again and the roads will never get fixed because the feds will not have money to give us.

People living in Natch. Parish are not worried about other parishes. Roads in this parish are in such bad shape it will take twice as much to repair them now as it would had them been graded or rocked like they should have been. Natchitoches Parish is like the third largest parish in the state. Have you ever seen how much tax money is collected in this parish. Even our state rds will beat a vehicle to death. I just replaced the front bearing in my truck after hitting a large pothole. Another thing is all these little towns around that the PJ has to go through the town's Mayor to grade or do any type of road work inside the city limits. Thats some of the stupid laws we have that makes about as much sense as me going to the moon..The whole thing needs to be revamped! All they can say is we don't have the money. They get the money they just can't manage it. Too many hands in the kitty.

Well said! They need to look at some of the Salarys they are paying out compared to the outside workforce. Also where the tax money is directed. I say lets not feed the criminals in the NPDC for a couple of weeks and no trips to the doctor or dentist and that should be a good compliment to the road fund also how about cut out the employees that they pay to sit at the compactor stations and rummage through your trash after you leave that should help as well someone mentioned look at the other parishes around. Well I travel often and have been to all 64 parishes in Louisiana but I don't reside in them or pay taxes into these but I do know some of the neighboring parishes with compactor stations don't pay for someone to rummage through your trash.

I agree the system must be revamped and now is the time to do it. Do not vote for anyone who has or is currently serving on the police jury. The only district that has all candidate running that have already served is district 4. Vote David Dollar in district 4, vote for people ego have never served in the other districts and vote for Nowlin in the presidents race. Let's see real change and send the message that it is time to shape up.

that may be true but we need experienced business people who have built companies from the ground up to run this Parish. It's not about who is more personable its about who has the potential to be more successful. My vote will go to Nowlin.

Where is the business part of the government? What do product do they have for sale? What service do they sell? They dont sell tires or hamburgers. They depend on taxes for income. Where does the tax come from? US! I refuse to vote in more taxes.
Nowlin didn't do a damn thing for us when he was in Baton Rouge. He had a chance to fix our state roads. He didn't.
He had a chance go get state money for our police jury to fix our parish roads.
He didn't do that either.
What he did do is vote himself a raise while he was there.

Don't be stupid and vote for a selfish politician. Vote for the man that cares about making this place a better place to live.

you ignorance is showing. It is our job to fix our own problems. We are not entitled to other peoples money. We must look at where our budget can be cut, study how best to spend what we have and look for ways to grow the revenue without raising taxes. It is impossible to tax your self rich. Rick Nowlin built a very successful business. Let's give him the chance to put those skills to work for us. You don't understand state politics if you think he or any representative in their freshman term could waltz in and get large funds for their parish. You have to earn the respect of the legislators, which is what Nowlin was doing, they still come to him for help with their bills. If the ignorant voters of the district had not thrown him under the bus for protecting Natchitoches and NSU then he would have been in a great position to help us. Instead we have freshman representative controlled by his brother that has not authored a single bill. Stupid is as stupid does.

When it was election time that's all we heard, I'll get it roads fixed and I'll do this and that. Damn those lying ass politicians. All you see in point place is more signs up with Patsy's name on them. What has she done for point place , not a dang thing. She already has one position that needs fixin definitely don't need to take on anything else
