ADVANCE FOR MONDAY FEB. 10 AND THEREAFTER. - In an Oct. 31, 2012 photo, the property and buildings in southern Beauregard Parish still sit empty more than a year since the C. Paul Phelps Correctional Center in DeQuincy, La., shut down. State officials said they are working to find a new use for the property. Local officials said they believe that will eventually happen. The state closed the 942-bed, medium-security prison in November 2012, saying it would save millions of dollars. (AP Photo/Lake Charles American Press, Johnathan Manning) MANDATORY CREDIT less
