AMITE—One oil well has struck black gold, and more wells are coming to Tangipahoa Parish as a result, said one local School Board member who said she hopes it will spell good news for Tangi’s schools.

School Board member Gail Pittman-McDaniel of the Spring Creek area told her fellows Tuesday night that developers have struck oil on property near a tract that her husband owns east of Kentwood, and she said she hopes it will mean good days ahead for the parish and particularly the local school system.

“One well has come in, and they plan to build more,” McDaniel said Tuesday at the TPSB meeting in Amite.

“I am hopeful they are going to continue to have success,” she said.

Senior board member Al Link of Hammond ribbed McDaniel about her claims, asking if the well in question was hers.

Although not her property, the north end board member said, “I hope it will be good for the whole parish."
