Keep safe and reflect on last weekPublished 12:39am Monday, August 27, 2012
The last of this year’s kindergarteners are no longer clueless about school, and their mothers are hopefully coping just fine.
The Natchez-Adams School District was opened its doors for the new school year last week, joining all the other area public and private schools. We wish all the area students and teachers a great year.
But the week was a busy one all around. Take your mind off Hurricane Isaac for a moment while we look back on the week.
- Local leaders welcomed Genesis Energy to the port. The new company plans to create 20 local jobs and plenty of new rail traffic, a much-needed addition that could secure the future of our only local railroad. Welcome, Genesis.
- Local teenager Taylor Spring took to the stage along with a group of other locals last week during Natchez Little Theatre’s production of “Alice in Wonderland.” Spring is exploring her options on stage before deciding a course of study in college next year.
- United Way supporters served up delicious jambalaya Friday at the agency’s annual kickoff. The day went well and served as a great fundraiser for local agencies that serve so many. Congratulations to all the great chefs who walked away with prizes, too.
- James Berry III, 20, is well on his way to a career as a cowboy. The local rodeo star performed for the home crowd Saturday, placing second, but hits the road this week for out-of-town events.
As we see what the week’s weather may bring, stay safe and lookout for your neighbors.
