Good news from past week

With Halloween and Daylight Saving Time in the rearview mirror, we now switch our view toward the front windshield, looking ahead to Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Some folks have already moved to the front of the line and decked the halls for Christmas, to which we say, to each his own.

Nevertheless, let’s not forget that Thanksgiving comes before Christmas and this year we hope everyone will have much for which to be thankful.

Last week’s Halloween celebrations went off without a hitch and by all accounts everyone had a great, ghoulishly fun time.

Here is a look at some of the other good news events from the past week in the Miss-Lou:

  • New York Times bestselling author Greg Iles of Natchez announced last week a March 19 release date for his next novel to be titled “Cemetery Road.”

The announcement was met with enthusiasm from Iles’ many fans far and wide.

Iles’ name and work are excellent calling cards for Natchez, and we wish him much success with the new novel.

  • Monmouth Historic Inn celebrated its bicentennial on Saturday with period dancers, re-enactors and a general celebration, complete with free tours.

Happy 200th birthday, Monmouth, and here’s to another 200 years.
