Storms don’t keep away good news

Published 12:00 am Monday, March 21, 2016

Good morning and good Monday. After a week of mostly wet weather, this week’s forecast for mostly clear skies during the majority of the week ahead is welcome news.

Today, we pause, as is our custom each Monday morning, to reflect on some of the good news from our community last week.

-Despite several days of really nasty, wet, stormy weather, the majority of the area came away unscathed and the places that did receive damage were mostly property damage, not injury or loss of life.

-The annual Natchez Powwow at the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians continued despite a wet start. More than 150 area Boy Scouts also participated in their annual camporee that coincided with the Powwow this year. Thanks to the many volunteers who make the Powwow an annual event and to the volunteers with the scout groups to devote time and energy to develop our youth.

-After weeks of talking about how best to work together, the Natchez-Adams County Port finally appears to be almost set to start taking the county’s offer to use its own mechanics to work on port projects. The county believes it can save the port tens of thousands of dollars in doing so. Such high potential savings make the effort worthwhile.

We hope you and your family have a week ahead filled with lots of good news.
