Sale $3500 Springfield hosts Edwin Edwards Just outside of Greater Poncha- toula's sister town of Springfield, a massive 6,000 plus people turnout for Governor Edwin W. Edwards was held. On assignment, this reporter was there with tape recorder and camera. Cars were parked a mile in either direction of the function. Joining Springfield Mayor Dewey Ratcliff, who was content to look on, were Lt. Coy. Bobby Freeman, Senators Se- vario, Nunez and Cross, Representa- tives Diez and Blount, Mayor Hoover, Clerk of Court candidate Buddy Ratcliff, Police Juror Larry Arceneaux, Public Service Commis- sioner Luis Lambert, and Livingston Parish Sheriff Odom Graves who also had his band there providing the music. Officially billed as a birthday party for Edwards, it impressed this re- porter as being a revival of area Democrats. Conspicuous by their absence were area candidates Dennis Hebert, Patrick McGibboney, and Lucius Patterson. Officials Knock "Mean Treen" Most of the elected officials spoke to the huge crowd. One can condense all their messages into a few words: Governor Treen doesn't care for the elderly and the poor. Treen is unreachable. Treen is the real thief: what happened to the huge surplus of money Governor Edwards left the state with when his last term ex- pired? If you want to get Louisiana progressing again, vote for Edwin Edwards. ', In a nutshell, that's how it was. Letter to the Editor Weldon Russell been working on the railroad Weldon Russell 311 E.

Fleet: Things Will Be Better Under Edwards When we asked why Fleet wanted to be on the police jury another term, Fleet said that he felt that a new governor would solve the parish's financial troubles. In fact, Juror Fleet told this reporter on tape that he is supporting Edwin Edwards for governor. If Appreciation Equal to Re-election William Fleet is the only black on the Tangipahoa Parish Police Jury. As such he does have an unique posi- tion. He is one of those with a vote on how to handle jury funds. He has had some successe and some finanolal failure. Will a new governor solve the police jury's bankruptcy problems? Will William Fleet be appreciated enough to be re-elected? When we know. you will know. ture affords much more flexibility in providing other financial related services.

Still to be processed are some 70,000 checks covering the refund forms already returned by customers to LP&L, plus checks for additional forms which are still being re- ceived. These refund checks cover customers who have received electric service between December 30, 1982 back through January, 1977. Since all of these forms must be processed manually, additional time is required to complete the re- fund information needed on these accounts. Processing is being handled on a daily basis and checks mailed each week until all refunds for 1983 are complete. Note: Texaco did not curtail gas delivery to LP&L during 1978, therefore there are no refunds due for that year. This first year's refund effort has been a major undertaking and we appreciate your patience and cooperation. Bi LOUIBIAlUA POWER & LIGHT MIOOLE SOUTH UTILITIES SYSTEM FOR A SEOLE ENERGY FUTURE
