Chilly temps bring area good news

Many residents woke up to a light frost and chilly temperatures in the Miss-Lou this weekend. The cold weather is just a hint of what fall has in store. As we say goodbye to the hot days of summer, let us look at some of the good things that happened last week: 

  • The Natchez-Adams County School District is using art as a way to teach students about important health issues, such as the Zika virus. Community Health Director for Southwest Mississippi Madeline England visited the class of Freshman Academy art teacher Katelynn Yvon recently to provide information about the mosquito-borne virus. The students used the information as inspiration for drawings and other art work in the class. Yvon said art has historically been a way to communicate such issues. The project helps the students learn the information creatively.
  • The Town of Vidalia welcomed residents and potential entrepreneurs to the newly opened Jack H. McLemore Jr. Technology Center Thursday. The new building, which will house the town’s Information Technology Department, will also provide workspace, Internet connections, mentoring and other business services to those looking to start a business in its new business incubator.
  • Caitlyn Gamberi likes being busy. The Adams County Christian School senior not only attends dual enrollment classes, but also is a member of four clubs, plays three sports and works in her father’s store. All of the activity adds up. Many times, she does not get home before 7 p.m. But Gamberi said she knows the busyness of her life will help her succeed when she graduates and goes on to college. She hopes to attend the University of Southern Mississippi next year and pursue a physical therapy career. With her willingness to work hard, Gamberi is sure to find success in whatever path she chooses.

Let us remember thank those who continue to make our community great.
