BREAKING NEWS: Those readers who listened to new Governor Edwards last night, you’d think the STATE is going to hell! And, NO LSU football will NOT be affected because football generates revenue to fund ALL LSU sports and contributes $10 million to the University every year for academics! What Edwards does NOT tell you is that the State budget went up 50% in the last 8 years while revenues ONLY went up 25%. Everyone MUST watch State Treasurer’s video in rebuttal to Edwards dire forecast. Like Kennedy says in this video, we DON’T have a revenue problem, we have a SPENDING problem! Here’s the link:
ALSO: The LSU Tigers start baseball play next Friday (2/19) as they take on Cincinnati for a 3 game series on Friday, Saturday and Sunday! “Take me out to the old ball game……..”
ALSO - UPDATE: My Louisiana Fuels Director contact sent me an e-mail today (12/28/15) with a followup on what may be the reason why Racetrac is apparently having second thoughts about going ahead with the E15 and E85 sales at 11 of their stations in Louisiana. The apparent reason is: The rumor is that feds are requiring the usual hiring criteria to get the job done and Racetrac was not happy with those Federal requirements. It is NOT clear if Racetrac will pursue this further at this time.
An update on the Racetrac plan to install over 150 blend pumps at 11 new/remodeled Racetrac stations throughout Louisiana. My Louisiana Fuel Director contact just informed me that he learned that Racetrac has POSTPONED their plans ‘indefinitely’.
PLEASE NOTE: Notice on the right hand side of this page that I posted a notice that I am putting the website up for sale. Any interested parties, please contact me at the e-mail address listed in the notice.

LSU SPORTS INFORMATION:
Baseball season is upon us and I started posting articles on LSU baseball TODAY (2/9/2016).

LSU SPORTS ARTICLE:
Today (2/11) I posted a GREAT article by LSU Sports.net titled “BASEBALL ANNOUNCES TV, STREAMING SLATE FOR 2016″.
Read the articles in the LSU section below.
* * * GUN CONTROL IN AMERICA * * *
Today (1/9/2016) I posted a new gun control article on the “Gun Control in America” website page titled “10 MYTHS ABOUT GUNS“. The article was written by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (Chuck Grassley is a Republican senator from Iowa and serves as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee) in response to Obama’s newest executive order on gun control of Monday, January 4th. This is a VERY INFORMATIVE article which clearly ‘DEBUNKS‘ most if not all of President Obama’s claims on gun issues in this executive article. I encourage you to read the article.
Please read the article on the website’s ‘Gun Control in America‘ page (see the link on the article tool bar on top of this page). After you read the article, I URGE you to join either the NRA of NAGR advocates for gun owners TODAY. They need our involvement and financial support to fight this issue for us.
I’ll ONLY post here when I add a new article to the “Gun Control in America” page.
American gun owners and defenders of the 2nd Amendment NEED HELP in fighting off the Government and State ‘gun control’ advocates! If you are not currently a member of the NRA (National Rifle Association) or the NAGR (National Association for Gun Rights), you are urged to join TODAY. Dues for the NRA are only $25/year and $35/year for the NAGR.
Here’s how (the NRA is the most powerful and influential):

BASEBALL ANNOUNCES TV, STREAMING SLATE FOR 2016
By Bill Franques/Sr. Associate SID – LSU Sports.net – Jan 14, 2016
BATON ROUGE, La. – For the second consecutive year, all 56 of LSU’s regular-season baseball games will be available for viewing as the Tigers will enjoy tremendous exposure during the 2016 season.
LSU is scheduled to make two appearances on ESPN2, one on ESPNU, seven on the SEC Network, three on Cox Sports Television and one on the CBS Sports Network.
2016 LSU Baseball Schedule
Forty of the games will be carried on SEC Network +, the online platform available at SECNetwork.com and the WatchESPN app, and LSU’s two games at Notre Dame on May 10-11 may be viewed online at ESPN3.com and the WatchESPN app.
More than 90 Southeastern Conference baseball games are slated to air across ESPN networks, including 75 on the SEC Network. Coverage of SEC baseball on national television has quadrupled since the SEC Network launched last year.
This year’s SEC Network schedule also includes five wildcard selections, allowing the network the opportunity to determine the best television matchup at a later date. The schedule closes out with the SEC Network airing the entirety of the SEC Baseball Tournament, with the exception of the championship aired on ESPN2.
