Prison would be great addition to county

Published 3:09 pm Wednesday, February 28, 2007

Dear Natchez and Adams County goverment officials, please don’t blow this chance to have a state-of-the-art $90 million prison in Adams County!

We need something — like 300 jobs.

Dear Adams County residents afraid it’s going to look bad driving into Natchez, give me a break!

Do you think any less of Woodville when you drive by their prison on your way to Baton Rouge? No.

You’ve forgotten about it by the time you reach beautiful Woodville. The only bad guys and gals we have to worry about are the ones on our streets.

One of these companies is going to build in Mississippi starting in June. I hope it’s in Adams County.

P.S.: Officials, sit up straight, comb your hair and get a haircut, you are on TV now!
