If they annexed anything, they would have to annex moss bluff, they cant annex westlake b/c Westlake has it's own municipality, so does Sulphur. I'm not sure about Iowa though.

How do I find out who are the top performing real estate agents in Lake Charles for 2009?
What number of actual sales in 12 months constitute 'successful?
Thanks

I don't get why everyone is down on Lake Charles. I don't live there, but my family has investment property there so I visit about once a year. Everyone makes it sound so depressed... it's not like it's Youngstown or Detroit or some other decimated rust-belt city. Most of the city is totally decent, lots of restaurants and shopping, nice people, the lake is right there and the coast isn't too far. I'm not saying it's paradise or anything, but I don't see what is so wrong with it. Houston is easily within driving distance if you have the urge to go to a ball game or "need" the big city for day. What am I missing? It seems like a fine place.

The shopping is not all that great, our mall is sub par(but hey, it used to be much smaller, at one time we didnt even have a food court) and the shopping could be improved just a bit. IMO they should build like a shopping district behind academy and end it at HWY397. And downtown needs a MAJOR facelift. I'm not saying it's going to be houston, b/c quite obviously it aint, even if we were to annex Westlake, Moss bluff, Iowa and Lacassine, it would not be like houston. But on the other hand, I went to st. simons Island. A tiny island in georgia, downtown was cute. Wasnt a skyline, but nice shops, resturants, and just the vibe, the people by the water, the cooking, etc still kicks LC's ass. And also, is it me or do our mardi gras celebrations just get worse and worse each year? Although, I gotta say, that last years fireworks were some of the best we've had in a long time, they were actually quite good.

Well, at least Lake Charles has one significant indicator of modern culture: it DOES have a Starbucks. As for bookstores, you would like to see a Barnes & Noble or a Borders, but right now it only has a Books a Million. And the L'Auberge casino is one of the nicest casinos in the entire state. Bottom line, it is a decent small city on the gulf coast. No more, no less.

lol, true, but about the starbucks. Yeah, it does have a starbucks. One on nelson rd and on ryan st. I'm glad it aint like NYC where they literally have them on every corner. That's four at the same intersection and they will literally be right across the streeyt from each other.

I never noticed there wasn't a Borders or a Barnes and Nobel... I just assumed ever decent sized city had at least one. I currently live in Santa Fe, NM, which is quite a bit smaller than Lake Charles, and we have two Borders stores. Are there any smaller chains like Walden or B. Dalton?
