Quick, fun trip south
I can’t recall doing yard work in January. But I was busy in the front yard Sunday afternoon.

Both my grandfather and father were huge supporters of education in Mississippi. My grandfather, Oliver Emmerich, served for years on the state board of higher education. My father, John Emmerich, worked closely with Gov. William Winter to help secure the passage of the Education Reform Act of 1982. John Emmerich sat by Winter’s side in the governor’s office as they called every single legislator in for an individual plea for support. It worked.
