The undead Yazoo pump Project

By KELLEY WILLIAMS,

The Mississippi Public Service Commission finally drove a stake through the gasifier heart of the Kemper County Lignite Plant. So customers won’t pay for most of its $7 billion cost. But the PSC may allow $300 million more in gasifier collateral costs for its turbines running on natural gas. These toes are still sticking up.


Oh, my, he was great

By RICK CLEVELAND,

Sports broadcaster extraordinaire Dick Enberg died during the Christmas holidays – December 21 to be exact – at the age of 82. He brought so much joy to my life, his passing shouldn’t go without comment.

So, of course, my first comment: “Dick Enberg, is gone. Oh my!”



Gardening Glimpses

By MRS. HERMAN MCKENZIE,

Today would have been Herman’s 88th birthday.   

So hard to realize that all our projects, planned together, are now up to me, and of course son Kevin and great friend Pete McKay.

We were wrong in this assumption.
