Wow, what a snow
My 19-year-old daughter Emma said she’d never seen a snow like this one.
I told her I didn’t believe I’d ever seen this much of the white stuff either.
Close to Nowhere
Hmmm, snow here too
OK, it was fun for a bit, but enough is enough!
As I write this on Tuesday, the forecast is calling for around 11 degrees come nightfall. I’m way too cold!
Report from the MS Senate
Report from first week of Mississippi Senate session
In our first day of the 2011 Legislative Session, Jan. 4, the Mississippi Senate passed House Bill 403 that helped to lure California-based Stion to Hattiesburg where it plans to hire up to 1,000 workers within six years. The bill is on the governor’s desk awaiting his signature.
Letters To The Editor
Car crashes in yard:
Monday evening, I heard a large pop sound, sort of like a transformer blowing, and felt the house shake. Having two new puppies, I figured they knocked over a table or something. Grady and I muted the television and heard a beeping sound. He traced it to the front of the house. He came back to the den and told me that there was a car in our yard!
Please take time to remember our local “heroes” who are serving in war zones around the world.
