June 19, 2010

Deb and I were present for the Municipal Dinner at the old Gus's Restaurant, downtown on 751 Dauphin Street. I always loved that place and apparently it is being used as an event location. Fed well on prime rib, potatoes, salad and bread-pudding was a way to seriously get our attention. Councilman Mike Dean and Commissioner Merceria Ludgood did a great job hosting the dinner and afterward we heard about the Pay As You Go projects and got an update on hurricane preparedness and the BP oil spill from Ronnie Adair at EMA. Ronnie informed us that there is a 50% chance of a class 3 hurricane entering the Gulf this season. While BP's prime directive is to stop the well head, they are also employing 720 people with over 40 hours training to pick up tar balls and boom off the marshlands and delta. After the meeting, they didn't even want to speculate on the possibility of a hurricane spreading all that oil inland.
