Randy if there are extra materials needed, or just some coffee that needs to be made give me a holler.

Seems as if Randy reported at one time this marker was stolen. Randy tells me that a state worker had broken the marker and took it down. It has been located and now needs welding and replaced. That is good news. If you are in Louisiana and can weld cast aluminum please contact Randy Ritchie from this website.

Here is a good link about the welding proces ---http://aluminumrepair.com/land/index.asp?src=msn

We just may get to have a re-didication this year!!!

i was just thinking, seems to me if a state worker damaged it, the state should be liable for the cost of repairing it.by the way, george i sent you a couple email concerning the marker, both email returned as undeliverable. you having trouble?

I cannot contact George by e-mail either. I have posted the comment he wanted me to review on the thread about the letter to the CWT about Lee. It appeared to be the only way to get it to him.

As for the damage done to the marker: don't hold your breath getting the State to ante up. If it was an act of vandalism on the part of the worker and not just an accident, then you should file charges for a "hate crime" (we've got to start using some of the enemy's tactics against him!) and get it covered in the press. You might not get anything concrete in the way of monetary reimbursement, but you will get publicity and maybe there will be no more vandalism. Who knows? You might also get someone to come forth to volunteer to fix the damage! Can't hurt, as me mother used to say.

Randy I agree with Val, but it wouldn't hurt to check and see if they will cover the cost.

Randy I did recieve one email. I think I may have made a mistake when I set up my email account. Check and see if emails from me have an "r' in "last." If so remove the "R" I haven't figured out how to edit my account at this time.
