Comment from V, an US citizen whose privacy was invaded by Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret of Trout Point Lodge in their SLAPP suit against Fox 8. This comment certainly earned the ire of Team Goatherder and it is apparent from V’s tone he was well aware of the threats that were being passed about regarding Slabbed on the mean streets of Jefferson Parish:
Please note all of the below is PUBLIC information.
There are no statements asserted as “fact” here; this is information recited from public sources and under no circumstances is this to be construed as anything but opinion and maybe occasionally satire. Thank you.
Ok, some thoughts:
2/22/11 report from the Pic (Rioux):
“The following individuals and firms made $1,000 contributions to Broussard after his resignation:
Amy M. Arthur of Madisonville, Bruce D. Burglass Jr. of Metairie, David R. Sherman of Metairie, Greg Cantrell Inc. of St. Rose, J. Caldarera & Co. of LaPlace, Bryan Krantz of Kenner, Jennifer Lanasa of New Orleans, John E. Lapworth of Metairie, Francis E. Lauricella of Harahan, Paul D. Monsour of Kenner, Leonard B. Newton of Pass Christian, Miss., Quest Realty of Metairie, Wayne E. Thomas of Metairie and John H. Wales of Mandeville.”
You will see there: Bryan Krantz, apparently the son of Marie Krantz.
Sherman – you know who that is, Chehardy & Co.
Caldarera – that as everyone knows by now means WARD
Wales – his name’s been mentioned before?
Monsour – well, it just so happens…
… there is a company called Mississippi 214, L.L.C. in Greenville. Its purpose? Who knows but Peter Butler Jr. is apparently the owner of it, because while MS does not show officers in their listings (why not again?) it does show agents (a Philip Mansour, with an *a*, typo? Close, but no, maybe not.) and an address, 7216 Stoneleigh Drive, Harahan LA 70123.
Also at that address…
PRAKA HOLDINGS (USA) L.L.C.
PRAKA-NOVA SCOTIA, L.L.C.
PRAKA-ST. BERNARD, L.L.C.
All basically showing the same info:
“Officer: PETER J. BUTLER, JR.
Address 1: 7216 STONELEIGH DRIVE
City, State, Zip: HARAHAN, LA 70123″
As for the word “Praka”, who knows what that means.
Slabbed knows what PRAKA stands for but that is not important right now. It was a name V did not mention in the expert breakdown of the financial web and that name is former Broussard campaign finance director Wayne Thomas that I find very interesting now.
And now a word from the good people at Carmex:
Alfred Woelbing, like many people, suffered from cold sores. Unlike many people, he had an entrepreneurial spirit and a knack for kitchen chemistry.
Alfred decided to solve his painful condition for himself, and concocted a remedy for his cold sores. In 1937, he began making Carmex by hand, pouring the lip balm into the familiar yellow-capped jars in his kitchen.
His sales method: visiting pharmacies one by one. If they weren’t interested, he gave them a dozen jars for free—along with a postcard to reorder. In no time, the pharmacies sold the free samples and the reorder forms starting coming in.
Alfred produced Carmex from home for many years, moving into a full production facility in the 1950s, and then to their current manufacturing site in 1975. About 100 people (including Alfred’s grandsons Eric and Paul Woelbing) continue to produce our original formula in its trademark little jars
