Good news melts week’s icy weather

The Miss-Lou dodged a bullet Thursday and Friday when winter weather moved into the area.

Ice fell, but roads stayed drivable and no significant power outages were reported.

A beautiful weekend helped us forget all about those freezing temperatures.

As we head into a new week, let’s review a few other great things from last week.

– Mississippi Development Authority Executive Director Gray Swoope visited with business leaders Tuesday, spending much of his time bragging on the new economic development efforts under way in town. We too are excited about what may come our way soon.

– Vidalia leaders announced plans for a new welding business to be located in the city’s industrial park. The business will create 12 to 15 new jobs.

– Natchez native Jeffrey Gardner made us all proud Tuesday night when the nation watched him showcase his cooking talents on the Food Network’s show “Chopped.” Gardner was a gentleman through and through, making it to the final round. He didn’t win the title, but he certainly won over hearts in the Miss-Lou.

– Natchez resident Casey Novak recently received the Applicators Conserving the Environment Award at the Mississippi Agricultural Aviators Association for his work as a crop duster pilot in Ferriday. Congratulations Casey.

– Monterey School fifth-grader Rebekah Sims is the Concordia Parish student of the year. Sims has a bright future ahead of her, and we will enjoy watching her progress.

A new week brings new opportunities, and we can’t wait to see what good news may come our way.
