October leaves its mark on Miss-Lou

What a week it’s been. Life in the Miss-Lou is just so busy this time of year, but thankfully, it’s fun too.

Let’s review some of the great things that either occurred or we learned about last week.

- The Great Mississippi River Balloon Race ended without a hitch, and both law enforcement and local businesses are reporting a good weekend. The crime rate was no more than normal, and restaurants said the crowds were above average. That’s a great plus for our community.

- After surviving two car crashes in less than two years, The Malt Shop is once again serving up frozen goodness. The restaurant reopened a week ago and received new windows this week. We are glad to have this part of our community open again.

- Students in Natchez High School’s Jobs for Mississippi’s Graduates program celebrated a new year with a ceremony last week. It’s awesome that our school district has such a program focused on putting students to work after school. That’s what we need.

- The Natchez Trace Parkway has turned 75, and we can’t imagine our lives without the great recreational roadway that brings so many characters to town. Clearly its historical significance to our area is unparalleled, but these days, we just simply love a Sunday afternoon drive there.

As we say goodbye to one of the best Natchez months, we know the holidays are a knocking. Get ready for some cheery, and maybe cold, fun this winter.
