With the leftovers nearly gone and the Christmas decorations coming up, we hope everyone in the Miss-Lou spent some time this week to be thankful for what we all have.

Our area is rich in blessings, and just to prove our point, let’s review some of last week’s good news.

4Communities on both sides of the river came together this week for Thanksgiving church services. This annual event provides a great chance for area churches to merge for an evening, make new friends and recognize God’s blessings on us all.

4Gas prices continue to drop, and this week, Entergy announced plans to cut their rates further. Cost savings like this make a difference for families and residents in our area.

4Local artists opened their doors Saturday to show the public a bit of how they work. The Artist Studio Tour saw good crowds and gave artists a chance to meet their interested public. Encouraging the arts in Natchez is a great industry and tourist attraction for us to embrace.

4The Natchez schools will again receive federal dollars to fund the Reading First program. The initiative focuses on reading in the early grades and has been in place in the district for a few years.

But the blessings don’t stop there, we know. The good news will keep coming as we approach the holiday season.
