Norfolk Southern plans new regional terminal
Norfolk Southern will announce plans Thursday to build an intermodal yard on about 500 acres in Fayette County, next to the Mississippi/Tennessee line.
The new “Memphis Regional Terminal” will be an anchor for Norfolk Southern's Crescent Corridor rail route, connecting the Northeast and Southeast with high-speed, reliable, truck-competitive intermodal service.
The crescent stretches 2,500 miles from New Jersey to Louisiana and is expected to absorb more than a million trucks per year from crowded highways, save the country 170 million gallons of fuel annually, and promote economic development and job growth.
For a complete report, see next week’s newspaper.

Cause of house fire still under investigation
A story in the “News Briefs “in last week’s newspaper contained incorrect information.
The cause of a house fire at 22 Mockingbird Lane in the Victoria area was not caused by exploding oxygen bottles. The bottles exploded after the fire got hot and soon after firefighters arrived at the scene, said Leland Reed with the Byhalia Fire Department.
The cause of the house fire has not been determined and is still under investigation, he said.
