Letters to The Editor
He will be missed
The Marshall County Humane Society was saddened last week to learn of the passing of lifetime member Willis (Bill) Baston.
Bill was one of our founding members; and for many years, he, along with his wife Norma, answered the Humane Society telephone. He volunteered countless hours at the spay clinic, thrift store, and in our rescue activities.
He will be missed by all who knew him.
As we came through the county your support and coverage of the 82-day Journey of the Cross through Mississippi was most appreciated. The response has been incredible and the times in each county have served to bring people together in exciting ways.
As each county came together, Mission Mississippi is now making the final plans for Sunday’s (Oct. 27) statewide celebration in Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium in Jackson at 5 p.m. At 4 p.m. participants from each county will gather in the parking lot at the stadium under their county’s cross and will march into the stadium together as the athletes do behind their country’s banner at the opening ceremony of the Olympics.
Once the crowd is seated, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes will, after a 2,489-mile journey through all of our state’s 82 counties, bring the cross into the stadium. A time of worship and encouragement will follow.
Dr. Dolphus Weary, Pat Morley and Barbara Skinner-Williams will address the crowd and encourage ongoing uniting in the body of Christ across racial and denominational lines.
Sunday will be a historic day in Mississippi. We would ask, if possible, you help us get this message out and have it in your paper this week.
Mission Mississippi and FCA invite and encourage all to come to Memorial Stadium and be a part of this celebration and worship.
I can’t believe our supervisors are raising our taxes on our property to give the county employees a raise.
There are other ways of getting tax money for the county, like letting people put mobile homes in the county and build houses in the county, but they oppose that. They would rather raise our property taxes.
Their priorities are in the wrong place.
People are having a hard time paying their taxes as it is.
I’m a retired fireman and had no raise in several years.
I’m asking the voters to remember this on election day and elect some new supervisors.
