KAPLAN — Kaplan Mayor Kirk Champagne says natural gas flow has been restored to the city after it was cut off due to a traffic accident last weekend. A third-party contractor will be lighting pilots at residents and businesses, starting today.

City workers make repairs Tuesday morning at the damaged gas feeder.

KAPLAN — The estimate that natural gas will again be available to Kaplan and surrounding areas by the end of the week is a best-case scenario.
On the night of Friday, Sept. 2, 2016, the Abbeville Police Department will be conducting a Sobriety Checkpoint. Officers will be looking for impaired drivers and other traffic related offenses. The checkpoint will be conducted between the hours of 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. somewhere within the city limits of Abbeville.
