Miss-Lou’s good news not washed away

The storms that passed through our area this weekend left behind some damage, but thankfully nothing that cannot be rebuilt or repaired.

As we prepare for the week ahead, let’s look back at some of the highlights from last week’s good news:

• Officials with Field Memorial Hospital broke ground on a new $21 million hospital two miles from its current downtown Centreville location. Hospital officials say the new facility — expected to be completed before October 2015 — will offer more convenience for patients and bring 150 temporary construction jobs. Expansion of medical services and new jobs to the area is always good news worth recognizing.

• National Park Service officials recently installed an interactive computer kiosk in Melrose, a key part of  the Natchez National Historical Park. The kiosk gives visitors a peek into the past through 21st century technology and is something park officials think helps better tell the story of Natchez. We’re glad to see the park service offering new forms of storytelling for visitors.

• Cathedral School sixth grader Fisher Iseminger is preparing to compete against students from across the state in the National Geographic Bee at Hinds Community College. Iseminger won a school-wide geography bee in January, earning her a trip to the statewide bee Friday. We wish Iseminger the best of luck.

Let’s keep those who may have been impacted by the storms in our thoughts as we begin another week in the Miss-Lou.
