Celebration, magic show create smiles

Warm weather has arrived with a vengeance in the Miss-Lou. But a little heat didn’t stop us from having a productive week.

Let’s take a moment to reflect on some shining moments from last week:

4The summer reading program is in full swing at George W. Armstrong Library. Last week, dozens of Natchez area children were entertained by a magic show. Tuesday, children will have the opportunity to hear storyteller Terrence Roberts. Just because school is out, doesn’t mean learning ends. We thank library staffers for keeping children engaged, and encouraging yearlong reading.

4Friday, retired Natchez City Engineer David Gardner received a well-deserved thank you on the steps of Natchez City Hall for his efforts in securing funds for the St. Catherine Street Trails Project. We thank Gardner, and other city officials who aided in getting those funds. St. Catherine Street boasts significant history, and it’s important we preserve and celebrate that history.

4Adams County Christian School named Matthew Freeman its new head baseball coach last week. Freeman, who previously served as assistant coach, looks to bring the program to new heights by incorporating eighth-grade students and encouraging off-season training. We congratulate Freeman on his new position, and hope he coaches the Rebels to victory.

As we plunge into another hot week, let’s remember to keep hydrated and don’t let the heat get you down.
