Rain didn’t wash away good news

We hope the refreshing downpour that greeted the Miss-Lou early Saturday didn’t wipe away your memories of last week entirely.

But just in case you are struggling to remember, we’ll review a few of the great headlines we saw last week.

A large cast took the stage for the Natchez Little Theatre’s production of “The King and I.” The theater has always had great community involvement, and we are happy such a big cast participated this time. Special recognition goes to the young people that made the show extra special, including teenage choreographers Jessi Green and Sydney Eidt.

Natchez and the Natchez-Adams School District played host to the Southwest Mississippi Educators’ Conference last week, giving area teachers a chance for top quality professional development. Local school officials took on this annual conference last year, when the state stopped providing a similar event.

More is happening in Ferriday every day it seems. It’s been a good spring for the town, and the musical endeavors are certainly great highlights. The Arcade Theater is now host to two regular musical acts each month, providing regular Saturday night fun for locals.

The Historic Natchez Foundation and its longtime leaders Ron and Mimi Miller received top honors from the Mississippi Heritage Trust for great preservation work in Natchez and the state. Congratulations to all involved.

The coming week looks to be full of heat and humidity, but we’ll have plenty of good news to cool us off.
