Good news ushers in summer days

Published 12:03 am Monday, May 30, 2011

We’ve, unofficially, begun summer today, are you ready?

As we pause to remember our heroes on Memorial Day, we can’t help but look forward to the slower pace summer always brings.

But the last week of school classes and graduations kept us busy, for sure. Let’s review a few great things about last week.

– The Natchez High School class of 2011 is on their way, and we wish them best of luck. The graduates said farewell Friday night, and we know many of them have bright futures ahead.

– The Soul Survivors concert in Ferriday was a much-needed break from flood mania. The free concert celebrated Ferriday’s music history while giving residents a chance to enjoy the smooth sounds and have a little fun.

– Natchez High student Nia Davis placed third at the Mississippi Regional Reading Fair in Jackson recently. Davis has big goals for the future, starting with her junior year in the fall. Good luck.

– The Adams County Master Gardeners continue to offer up their services for the betterment of our community. The group has proposed to the City of Natchez that it will plant aesthetically pleasing trees along Franklin Street. This group has already taken part in regular cleanups that beautify our city. We thank them for their work.

Enjoy the time away from work today, if you have it, and remember why we celebrate. Then, get ready for summer.
