Good times, good news roll for area

Happy Mardi Gras, Miss-Lou.

This season is a great time in Natchez, where we celebrate with just as much fun but not quite so much craziness as New Orleans.

The Krewe of Phoenix parade rolled through town Friday to the delight of crowds lining the streets. But the beads, cups and other goodies flying from the floats weren’t the only good thing about last week.

Let’s review a few other good things that occurred last week.

-Several area schools celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday with Read Across America festivities. Fun and costumes kept children interested, but the underlying goal was the promotion of reading. We are glad our schools know how to combine fun and learning.

– A large crowd turned out for a meeting on a Vidalia community watch program. It seems the citizens of Vidalia are ready and willing to step up and make their community safer.

– Copiah-Lincoln Community College cut the ribbon on its long-awaited health and science building. The new structure is a welcome sight in Natchez, since we know Co-Lin will put it to use making our community better.

– Trinty Episcopal School has a plan to place Promethean boards in all its classrooms. Staying up-to-date technologically is essential for schools, and we are glad the Saints are right in step.

As we enjoy the last few days of the Mardi Gras season, we know the good times will always roll in the Miss-Lou.
