Cowpokes, thespians add to good news

A weekend filled with bucking broncos and blues ballads has come and gone.

But before we prepare for the week ahead, let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from last week:

-Hundreds of cowgirls and cowboys packed the Wayne Johnson arena Friday and Saturday for the annual Adams County Sheriff’s Pro Rodeo. Apart from providing wholesome family entertainment, the proceeds from the rodeo go to an ACSO fund used to purchase equipment for the sheriff’s office. We hope everyone had a good time at the rodeo this weekend.

-A handful of Cathedral School students walked away with first place awards at an annual district science and engineering fair in Hattiesburg. Faith Anne Brown’s project about photosynthesis won her a first place award, as well as the University of Southern Mississippi Women in Science and Engineering Award, which is only given to one student each year. Keep up the good work, students.

-Trinity Episcopal Day School students got a blast from the medieval last week as they participated in a variety of activities for the school’s Shakespeare Fest. The annual festival ended Saturday with a performance of “Twelfth Night.” A standing ovation is due to all those who participated in the school’s events.

-Local golfers were paired with Special Olympic athletes Saturday for the ninth-annual Benefit Golf Scramble. The event is the main fundraiser for Mississippi Special Olympics Area 7. We thank the golfers for participating and hope all the teams had a great time.

April showers are almost gone, as we prepare to, hopefully, welcome May flowers this week.
