Raised on vegetables
My memories of the garden while I was growing up are good and not so good.
Eating a tomato sandwich for four consecutive days last week and the 100-plus degree temperatures made me reminisce a bit.
Close to Nowhere
“Guess I was born with a travelin’ bone... you got that right, you got that right... Here comes that ol’ travelin’ Jones once again...you sure got that right.”
With apologies to Lynard Skynard, they sure got that right!
Question is who pays – ratepayers or the company?
The $2.8 billion lignite gassification plant in Kemper County is in trouble. It’s $366 million over budget but only 22 percent completed.
Public pressure is increasing. Last week the Mississippi Public Service Commission (PSC) denied a request by Mississippi Power Company to raise rates $20 a month on small residential customers and even more on other ratepayers. The raise would have affected 186,000 homes and businesses in 24 southeastern Mississippi counties.
Letter To The Editor
June 24, after returning from church, my wife and I noticed smoke about a half-mile from our home. Within half an hour, the fire was near our home. Someone had set their pasture on fire, with high winds. Several minutes later I saw fire engines with volunteer firemen from several stations. I spoke with one of the chief firemen and while speaking with him, I overheard him talking with another chief from another station. They were stating the importance of the safety of their men.
These volunteer firemen worked very professionally and brought this wild fire under control, and no homes were damaged. These men are not paid, but worked as if they were. With that said, it is very important that we pay our fire dues. These dues are their primary funding, so please, let’s do our part.
