SOCIETY Garden clubs praise sheriff for his anti-litter campaign By TERRY ANN McMAHON Wednesday the Greater Tangi Council held its meeting at the Community Garden Club building in Memorial Park. Community Garden Club hosted the gathering and provided refreshments for all guests. Guest speaker was Sheriff Ed Layris- son, who informed members of his Litter Program and Inmate Service Program. The sheriff outlined his three step program: first the inmate labor program; second enforcement of the litter laws; third education. According to the sheriff any non- profit group can request prisoner labor to help clean up their area or to work for a special project. The prisoners volunteer for these jobs and are selected from a non-violent pool of prisoners. The sheriff will be able to increase these crews when the new jail opens in October and a larger non-violent prisoner pool is created. Sheriff Layrisson said, "It costs taxpayers a lot of money to house prisoners so they should give back to the community with their labor." Educationally, the sheriff plans to add a litter puppet show to the already existing Stranger Danger show and bring it to all area schools. "We must create an attitude of takinct pride in Louisiana," said the sheriff, "and eliminate the idea that Louisiana is a dirty state. ' Mrs. Wagner commended the sheriff and stated that the Tangi Council has the same goals of cleanliness, beauty and conservation. "We have the same objectives," said Mrs. Wagner. The president then thanked the sheriff for his talk and presented him with a plaque in appreciation of his campaign against litter in Tangipahoa Parish.
