  • "What Price Success - A Louisiana Malady" by Sam J. Pingo
    available from Barnes and Noble
    Mr Pingo says "I was Superintendent of Tangipahoa Parish Schools from 1982-90 and I was the Superintendent who had a one penny sales tax passed in 1982 - one month after being appointed Superintendent. This one penny sales tax that took our school system from broken down buildings that were falling apart throughout the parish -- to 35 brand new and renovated schools throughout the parish. Every school you see in Tangipahoa Parish was built during my administration and next we improved student achievement from near bottom in the State to Above National Average for the first and only time in Tangipahoa Parish history." This book "is the true story of my time as an educator in Tangipahoa Parish Schools and was published by FirstBook Publishers. It can be ordered from most any book company and is also listed in Barnes & Noble Books on the internet. The parish library purchased several copies and placed them in the parish library. "

    The latest publication of the St. Helena Historical Association, Inc. is St. Helena Remembers Her World War I Veterans. This all came about when Inez Tate located a book pertaining to the World War I veterans of St. Helena Parish in the Clerk of Court's office. It was a summary of the discharged, listed three on each page and in alphabetical order.
    A contact made with the Department of Veterans Affairs in Baton Rouge produced little information. The officer was familiar with the book and stated that until 1987, these books were in all parishes in Louisiana. At that time, they were turned over to the Louisiana State Archives for safekeeping. He did not know the origin of the books, and the Louisiana State Archives had no information regarding the origin of them either.
    Some veterans took their discharge papers to the Clerk of Court, and copies were made and retained there. A review of the St. Helena Cemetery reveals there were World War I veterans buried in the various cemeteries who were not included in the book of discharges nor was a copy of their discharge filed in the Clerk of Court's office.
    The book includes interesting information on the veterans' service time. Noted in this publication are the addresses of the little post offices no longer in existence. Also included are interesting stories and data on the veterans.
    The price of this soft-cover book is $18.00, postpaid.
    Order directly from St. Helena Historical Association,
    6370 La. 43, Montpelier, LA 70422-8227.
    The cover picture shows the type of uniform worn by the doughboys.
