Ben Hillyer / The Natchez Democrat — Natchez residents came to Friday Forum for a cup of coffee and a lot of information at the Natchez Coffee Co. about recycling and energy savings tips from Entergy and Atmos representatives. Director of the local Green Alliance, Jim Smith, discussed the community’s future in recycling and how important the community’s involvement in the city’s pilot program is when it gets started on Earth Day, April 22. The program will first serve a limited area of 1,700 customers and will be expanded, if all goes as planned, after six months. Entergy representative Tim Runnels, right, shows the different types of wire that are used by the company and how important it is to be safe around any wires.
