Expansion, barks top off weekPublished 12:01am Monday, September 17, 2012
September is flying by, it seems, and bringing plenty of fun and good news along with it.
Let’s review just a few highlights from last week:
• A long-time local business, Southwest Distributors, broke ground on a new location where the company hopes to expand its business. It’s great to see a local business succeed.
• Several local schools and a few patriotic residents went out of their way Tuesday to remember the Sept. 11 anniversary. Though the reason we paused was certainly not good news, the fact that locals continue to commemorate the loss and education our children on the historic event is uplifting.
• Two students at Trinity Episcopal Day School are leading a school-wide TV show titled, “Trinity Talk.” The students include news, interviews and comedy in their weekly broadcast and are learning about journalism, cameras, lighting, sound and simply working with people along the way. Wesley Gore and Murphy Aldridge should be proud of their work so far, and we hope other students will soon be involved.
• A large, tail-wagging crowd filled the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians Saturday for the annual Bark in the Park fundraiser for the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society. This fun event is a family favorite every year.
As we begin the second half of September, we continue to not-so-patiently await those great fall temperatures and more great news that’s surely just around the corner.
