Good morning, good Monday and good Memorial Day. As we start off a new week and the last few days of May, our nation pauses to remember the memories of service men and women throughout the generations.

As is our custom, we pause this morning first to reflect on the memories of the good news from our community last week.

4Adams County&8217;s drug court celebrated graduates of a different type. Last week was the second graduating class of the special court aimed at helping people with their drug problems rather than locked them up. The program seems successful and we applaud the work and dedication of all involved &8212; from the judges to the sponsors who ultimately give the graduates a second chance by hiring them.

4Adams County supervisors named Cathy Walker the new county administrator. With Walker&8217;s background, we&8217;re confident the supervisors made a wise decision and we wish Walker the best of luck.

4The crowd on hand Thursday night at a Natchez town hall meeting shows the level of interest the city&8217;s residents have in seeing positive changes for the future. We hope some of the ideas discussed will take root and become realities.

We hope you and your family enjoy today&8217;s Memorial Day holiday and that it starts off a new week of good news for each of you.
