Election not only summer headline

Published 12:01 am Monday, August 1, 2011

We’ve nearly survived the biggest bulk of election season, and the coming week will bring the first round of results.

But it wasn’t just campaign signs and handshakes that kept the community busy last week. Plenty of other good things occurred in the final week of summer for many area students and teachers.

Let’s review a few good headlines.

4 Cathedral student Emily Hall will head to college soon to participate in the early entry pharmacy program at Ole Miss. She received a full scholarship and said she can’t wait to begin the next chapter of her life. Good luck, Emily.

4 Mae Holyoak and her friends set up their annual lemonade and art stand Friday in front of the Natchez Convention Center. The young girls have been selling their wares once a year for the last four years to raise money for the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society.

These girls set an example all of us should follow.

4 The annual Natchez Food and Wine Festival delighted taste buds all weekend long. This great event brings many guests to town, but it’s also a favorite among locals.

4 Friends and families gathered Saturday for the Minorville Jubilee. This crowd fights the blistering heat every July to enjoy time together. Thankfully, a Natchez fire truck always arrives just in time to cool everyone down.

As a new, exciting week begins, we want to remind everyone to get out and vote Tuesday.
