"I hate doing things on a rush," Councilman Larry Snyder said. Council members Ranney Wilson and Cheryl Millet were absent from, the special meeting, which was called on Tuesday. Parish President Natalie Robottom told council members they didn't have more time because required nominations from the industry groups did not arrive until earlier this week. "I feel the same way that you doI don't like to be pushed to the limit," Robottom said. Had the council not acted, it would have lost the power to make the appointment to GovBobby JindalRobottom said that she and Jindal had spoken and that he was ready to appoint Scontrino. Scontrino was nominated by the Greater New Orleans Barge Fleeting Association and the River Region Chamber of CommerceStJohn businessman Pat Sellars was nominated by the New Orleans and Baton Rouge Port Pilots Association. "I know both of them, and I didn't see a problem with either one of them," Council Chairman Lucien Gauff III said"But I think MrScontrino, as a business person, does give us an opportunity to bring a lot of value to StJohn Parish." If confirmed by the state Senate, Scontrino will replace Rusty Gaudet, who did not seek a re-appointment to the commission. The governor appoints four of the port's seven commissioners, while StCharles, StJohn the Baptist and StJames parish governments appoint one member eachCommissioners for all but one seat must be nominated by certain groups, most of them river-related industry associationsThe governor has one appointment on the commission who must be a resident of one of the three parishes. Robottom said that she has been assured that Edgard resident Louis Joseph, now the port commission chairman, will be re-appointedJoseph has been nominated by the AFL-CIO View/Post Comments Related Stories if (pb_page_template == undefined) { var pb_page_template = 'article'; } if (pb_page_template != "index") { document.write('); } function setCustomOptout() { if (document.getElementById('newsletter-optout').checked) { document.getElementById('optout_value').value = "NO"; $('#newsletter-realdeal').val(""); } else { document.getElementById('optout_value').value = "YES"; $('#newsletter-realdeal').val(newsletter_realdeal_slidval); } } var newsletter_realdeal_slidval = "6700EAF45F07D38E49C0741D13E8596F"; function verifyform(f) { setCustomOptout(); var l = f.elements.length ,output = "Oops your request could not be completed because some of the information you entered is not validYou should follow the instructions below and then try again \n\n" ,i=0 ,nl_checked = false ,good_zip = true ,good_email = false ,optin_good = false ; for (i=0; i-1) { if (e.value.length > 4) { var z = "" ,zz = "" ,x = 0 ; for(x=0;x-1) good_email = emailCheck(e.value); } if (good_zip==false){ $("#newsletter-zip").css({'box-shadow':'0 0 8px red'}); output += "- Please enter a valid Zip Code\n"; } if (good_email==false){ $("#newsletter-email").css({'box-shadow':'0 0 8px red'}); output += "- Please enter a valid Email Address\n"; } if ((good_zip==false) || (good_email==false)) { alert(output); return false; } $(".newsletter-form").hide(); $('#newsletter-thanks').show(); return true; } function emailCheck (emailStr) { var checkTLD=1 ,emailPat=/^(.+)@(.+)$/ ,specialChars="\\(\\)>127) return false; } for (i=0; i127) return false; } if (user.match(userPat)==null) return false; var atomPat=new RegExp("^" + atom + "$") ,domArr=domain.split(".") ,len=domArr.length ; for (i=0;i1) return false; var string="1234567890"; if (string.indexOf(num)!=-1){return true;} return false; } Breaking News/Live events Latest live event and breaking news, weather, sports and entertainment updates as they happen.   optional Check here if you do not want to receive additional email offers and information.
