Snow adds to week of good news

Published 11:45 pm Sunday, December 10, 2017

Dreaming of a white Christmas may not be so far-fetched, after all. Two weeks before the official holiday, residents woke to find several inches of snow covering the ground. The icy precipitation turned the Miss-Lou into a winter wonderland for local children of all ages. With exception of several power outages, the winter event caused relatively few problems in the area and the snow has all but melted as a new week begins.

Let us look as some of the other good news from last week:

  • Adams County Christian School ninth grader Lane Rehms is a leader waiting on a calling. The straight-A student was the student council president for the sixth through ninth grades. Combined with his many volunteering hours and academic honors, Rehms has shown a natural ability to excel and to lead. Even still, Rehms said he is keeping an open mind and waiting for the right career opportunities to present themselves. With the right determination and patience, we know Rehms will succeed at whatever career path he chooses.
  • A new movie will soon start production in Natchez. The film will involve some of the same executives behind “Get On Up,” which was filmed in 2013. Crews are to begin working on the film soon and will primarily shoot in Natchez.
  • Little libraries are popping up all across the Miss-Lou. With the Natchez Board of Aldermen’s approval, Callie Godfrey installed one of the small book shelters in Duncan Park recently. The idea for the library is simple. Patrons who wish to check out a book from the unattended box are asked to replace the book they check out with another book. The library joins two other existing libraries — one on the Natchez bluff and one at the Natchez campus of Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Natchez.

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