The Dart: Nice day for a bicycle ride on the bluff

THE NATCHEZ DEMOCRAT
NATCHEZ — Friday afternoon on the bluff Missy Spear along with her daughter Savanna, and 11-year-old nephew, Mikey Brumfield, were riding their bicycles.
All three were out to enjoy the warm sunny Friday by riding around Natchez, Spear said, when The Dart landed on the bluff.
“We usually ride to the Malt Shop first, but we skipped it today, and rode through the park at St. Mary,” Spear said. “Mikey lost a pedal and some residents of Wall Street came out to help. Then from there we went to the bluff.”
On Saturday, Spear said she would depart for Thoman, Haiti, with a 22-person delegation from Natchez as part of a group called the Hand’s and Feet of Haiti.
Leaving from Natchez will be two nurses, two teachers and two electricians to spend seven days there.
“We have a target group of girls aged 12 to 18 years old to focus on,” Spear said. “We are bringing sewing machines with us. We will have nutrition classes to educate the people. We will do infant maternal classes also on the importance of nutrition for the mother and the infant.”
Brumfield said he is excited about his trip out of the country.
“This is my first time to be gone for seven days,” Brumfield said. “I am going to get to teach Bible School there.”
