Week’s good news brings out best

Time and time again, the Miss-Lou has demonstrated its overwhelming generosity.

Despite being named No. 1 in the nation for raising money for the American Cancer Society two years in a row, residents refused to be complacent. This year Relay for Life outpaced last year’s fundraising efforts by several thousands of dollars. This year’s success could likely end up putting the organization on top for three years in a row.

The efforts of all who continue to make Relay for Life so successful demonstrate the true spirit of the Miss-Lou.

Other good news from last week includes:

*Despite a steady drizzle, area runners let the fourth be with them as they took to the streets during Saturday’s annual Color Run. The event sponsored by the Natchez Young Professionals and Leadership Natchez raised money for scholarships for local students.

*Alex Dale finally found perfection when the Cathedral Junior scored a perfect 36 on the ACT college entrance exam. Not one to settle for anything but the best, Dale decided he could do better than the 35 he made in his sophomore year. Congratulations to Dale for his perseverance and his accomplishment.

*Two Concordia Parish deputies demonstrated their passion for the job and love of a challenge when they eagerly set out to capture two small alligators when agents from Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries were too far away to respond. Their enthusiasm and willingness to take on a challenge is refreshing in today’s world.

“It is like when you go to Burger King, and they give you two extra onion rings with your order of fries,” deputy Walter Mackel said about trapping the two gators. Thanks to deputies Walter Mackel and Jonathan Carroll for making us smile.
