We’re a little more than three weeks away from the November election and voters have yet to see or hear a commercial from Former Governor Edwin Edwards in the sixth district Congressional race. Political Analyst Bernie Pinsonat says Edwards has the luxury of not having to run TV ads…
Pinsonat says voters already know Edwards and he doesn’t have to spend money on TV spots to garner name recognition. He says you don’t see that very often, but there is nothing about Edwards that is normal or usual…:
According to Edwards last campaign finance report, he had 145-thousand dollars in cash on hand. Pinsonat says Edwards will likely finish in the top 2 in the primary, but he’ll need to spend some money and probably get on TV to win the run-off election..

The Louisiana Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section is investigating reports of scammers targeting Entergy residential customers and small business owners. Amanda Larkins, with the A-G’s office, says a con artist, claiming to be with Entergy, calls a customer’s home or business and the victim is told they need to make an immediate payment, because they are behind on their bill…
Larkins says this scam has been around for a while, targeting elderly and other residential consumers, but now these scammers are moving on to small business owners with larger utility expenses
Entergy will place courtesy calls to customers at risk of disconnection, but they’ll never demand immediate payment. Larkins says if someone contacts a consumer claiming to be from a utility company and uses high pressure tactics to force immediate payment, the best thing you can do is hang up

The LSU Tigers finally have their first SEC win of the season and it wasn’t easy. LSU and Florida went back-and-forth in a crazy fourth quarter on Saturday in Gainesville, but it was the Tigers who came out on top 30-27. Coach Les Miles says the victory shows what these Tigers can accomplish…
The Tigers defense had a good performance. They forced three turnovers and Florida was just 2-of-12 on 3rd down. Quarterback Anthony Jennings made a couple of good throws in the fourth quarter and finished with 110 yards on the game, with one touchdown and zero interceptions. Miles says they got what they wanted from the quarterback position
