Yesterday's announcement has brought lots of enthusiasm to the Ark-la-miss. One of the largest cities in Northeast Louisiana is especially excited about the potential of jobs for its residents. We found people in Bastrop overjoyed with the coming of V-Vehicle Company to Northeast Louisiana. For them, V stands for jobs. That is because of the jobs and tax money Bastrop lost when international paper company pulled up stakes and moved out of town late last year. After more than one hundred years in Morehouse Parish the paper plant left and took with it over a thousand jobs. Many people we spoke with today in Bastrop either worked at the plant or know somebody who did. City and Parish officials also worried over how the town would function without thousands in tax money from IP. But, yesterday's announcement of the V-Vehicle eased lots of minds. "We're totally excited and ready to receive V-Vehicle in Northeast Louisiana.,” said Mayor Elect, Betty Olive. “We know that we have an available workforce and I'm certainly going to do all I can to make sure that our people are aware of the opportunities that will be put forth." Mayor-Elect Olive says she expects the V-Vehicle plant to provide a much needed shot in the arm to the Morehouse Parish economy.
