Fracking brings oil boom to south Texas town, for a price

CARRIZO SPRINGS, Texas Just a few years ago this was a sleepy town of 5,600, and people eked out a living from the land. They farmed, worked ranches and leased their property to hunters to make a few dollars.

West Bank business owners fight to stop bridge tolls

New Orleans, La. –

More than 100 West Bank business owners have signed on to end tolls on the Crescent City Connection.

Many spoke out Tuesday in the parking lot of the CCC offices.

“To steal a famous presidential line: Mr. and Mrs. Voter, tear down these toll booths,” said business owner John Roberts.

“We kept our part of the deal and the government needs to keep their part,” said state representative Pat Connick of Marrero.

After 14 years, tolls on the bridge are set to end on December 31, unless voters decide to renew them for another 20 years.

“I think I’ll vote for to keep them,” one man said as he pulled onto the bridge. “I like what they’ve done with the money.”

A woman said she feels it’s time for the tolls to end, that the bridge is paid for.

Some business leaders hope to convince other voters to end them.

“Over the past 15 years the waste and abuse have continued. A design contract with Peters Road has never materialized,” said Mark Zimmer of Citizens Against Tolls.
