He’ll likely be remembered here for being a part of the gang that made the Times Picayune eat its own big toe……..

Trout Point Lodge
Trout Point Lodge

The Times-Picayune has referenced Trout Point Lodge in some of the stories published in print and online since Jan. 6 regarding an ethics complaint against former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard claiming that he owns a Nova Scotia vacation lodge that he rented to parish contractors.

The newspaper retracts publication identifying Aaron Broussard as having an ownership interest in Trout Point Lodge; asserting Trout Point Lodge was rented to Jefferson Parish contractors; indicating that Roy D’Aquila has any part in Trout Point Lodge ownership or management; indicating that Kempt Wilderness Lodge Services has any ownership or management relationship with Trout Point Lodge; and identifying a photo of the lodge online as “Broussard-lodge.jpg.” The Times-Picayune apologizes for publishing this material.

Of course we now know that retraction is in fact a falsehood in and of itself when Slabbed broke the letter written by Roy D’Aquila to Trout Point Lodge ordering the Libel Tourists Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret to insure Broussard’s cabin on the Lodge’s main insurance policy, since the “Lot Assessments” were not covering Broussard’s note on the cottage. That revelation came on the heels of the plea deal reached by the government with Aaron Broussard’s ex-wife which indicated that she would be giving up Aaron’s Nova Scotia money train as illustrated on Slabbed. And then the most recent revelation of fluttering butterflies and rumored turmoil inside the law firm of D’Aquila, Volk, Mullins & Contreras.

I mention all this because Slabbed has learned that Roy D’Aquila has passed away. I wish to express the condolences of the Slabbed Nation to his family.

Lets disclose another branch of the Louisiana to Nova Scotia political family as Slabbed welcomes Edwin Edwards crony Carey S Goss to the Trout Point Lodge Party.

Several days ago it came to my attention that a gentleman named “Carey” S Goss was one of the land owners at the Trout Point Development.  History remembers Goss as an EWE unindicted co-conspirator that is also well-remembered as one of the guys that tried wiretapping FBI agents investigating Edwin Edwards back in the late 1990’s.  So along those lines it did not surprise me to see his name listed on the map of the Trout Point Development done by the good people at the SouthCoast Today that is color coded to its ownership.  The map is a must see graphic as a picture is indeed worth 1,000 words.
