Seniors open door to future
“High school days roll by quickly for many and slowly for others, but we all experience the same events in those four years, along with the successes, the failures, the new friends and the old, the good days and the bad. The long days of classes were often punctuated by the show of spirit in pep rallies and field days, and all of those fun experiences. These high school days will be remembered forever by all who happen to come this way.”
Those words were printed 30 years ago – in my last high school yearbook.

Graduation has been the main topic of conversation around the newspaper office lately.
Not only have we been working on our annual graduation edition; two of the kids here are graduating — Emma Burleson and David Breithaupt.
It’s been exciting, watching all the schools and the kids getting ready to head out into the world.
Deadline to switch to digital TV is looming
By U.S. Senator
Are you ready for the switch to digital television? Chances are you have seen plenty of ads about the upcoming transition - some that included me urging you to prepare for digital television, also known as DTV. The transition to DTV is just one month away and Mississippians who are affected need to take action.
Letter To The Editor
Praise for staff:
Last week my daughter, Morgann, lost her eyeglasses when she dumped her tray in the lunchroom after eating breakfast. Her teacher, Mrs. Lewis, called me and said that she had dug through the garbage in the lunch room to find them and couldn’t.
I thanked her for performing such an unsavory and unpleasant task for my child. I figured all was lost and had resigned myself to purchasing another pair of (expensive) glasses.
A very short time later, Mrs. Lewis called me back and informed me that Jamie Byrd and Frances Leopard had found Morgann’s glasses. Jamie had voluntarily gone through the big dumpster in the back of the school to find them!
I feel that she went way above and beyond the call of duty. She is a beloved figure by all of the children in the school system and it’s very easy to see why.
This is just one example of how the staff at Mary Reid Elementary School really and truly care for their students. I have two daughters enrolled in the Potts Camp School District and a son who will begin kindergarten in the fall. My girls have always been treated like they are family members of the teachers.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jamie Byrd, Frances Leopard, B.J. Lewis and all of the staff at Mary Reid School for all of their hard work and dedication to the children who attend Mary Reid Elementary School.
