Abundance of good stories last week

Published 12:29am Monday, October 8, 2012

Fall Pilgrimage brought fall weather late last week, and the fun is still going strong.

Natchez High and Adams County Christian School celebrated homecoming, while area animals received a special blessing or two.

Let’s review a few other good headlines from the week.

  • 4 Vidalia Police officers are sporting a new shade under their uniform blues — pink. The officers agreed to wear pink T-shirts for the month of October in honor of breast cancer awareness month. Thanks for your community support and everyday protection.
  • 4 The Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office has a new drug dog, and he’s making friends in town. Sarge made the rounds at area schools last week, meeting students, putting on demonstrations and helping his two-legged partners explain the importance of being drug free.
  • 4 The Adams County Christian School Key Club, led by President Melissa Lees, has worked for several weeks to raise funds for suicide prevention and awareness. The students turned in the money they had raised Saturday at the community-wide Out of Darkness Walk. We are glad our young people not only care, but also are willing to attend such events to make a difference.
  • 4 The Natchez-Adams County Humane Society is on the road to a new home soon. Board members announced a plan for a new building and location, and we are ready to see this project get under way.

Another great week is ahead, so be sure to enjoy October in Natchez. It’s a great month in the Miss-Lou.
